Spotlight | Rimmel Glam'Eyes Trio Eyeshadow in Fever.

When my aunt, uncle, and cousins came home last June for a quick vacation, one of the things I received as 'pasalubong' was the Rimmel Glam'Eyes Trio Eyeshadow palette. It's actually a gift from my favorite cousin Jeanne, who shares with me the same love for makeup and beauty products. (And KPop and Korean dramas, too. Haha!)
Rimmel Glam Eyes Trio Eyeshadow in 740 Fever.
My cousin knows purple is my favorite color, so it's not surprising that she chose the 740 Fever variant for me. It's a trio of purple shades - grape, lilac, and a lavender so pale it's almost white. And like most drugstore brands, this eyeshadow palette comes in a plastic pan. I find the packaging pretty chic (must be the triangles, lol) and quite sturdy, considering they're made of plastic.
Purple is love! :)
The Glam'Eyes Trio Eyeshadow, as per the Rimmel website, is a collection 'inspired by the sophistication of the London fashion scene.'  There are several colors available in the Glam'Eyes line, each shade combination aiming to complement a specific eye color. This purple palette, for instance, complements green eyes the best. Well, my eyes ain't green, but they work for me nonetheless. Haha!
Get the London look!
Here's how the eyeshadows look like when swatched. They're not as pigmented as I expected them to be, although the colors do pop out when you use them wet. I love the hint of sparkles in these eyeshadows, though I find the texture a tad chalky. Staying power is okay - at least five to six hours with a primer on.
From L-R: Shade #1, Shade #2, Shade #3.
What I love:
- Chic packaging.
- Color payoff is great when worn wet.
- Easy to blend and apply.
- Long-wearing.
- No allergic reactions.
- Not tested on animals.
- Affordable price. (They sell for $4.99 in the US.)

What you might not like:
- Texture is a bit chalky.
- Pigmentation is so-so if you're wearing them dry.
Wearing them purples dry! :)

I actually have another Rimmel eyeshadow palette that needs to be opened. They're a trio of blues though, and you know I have a love-hate relationship with blue eyeshadow. I think I need to muster up some courage before I give the blue ones a try. Lol!

Hello :) I also like purple shades. I love the idea of eyeshadow palettes that have this kind of diagram. It will be very easy for beginners to apply more than 1 color of eyeshadows.

How I wish I know how to use and apply eye shadows. Late na kasi ako nagka interest sapag gamit ng makeup. Hihi. Anyway, I'm loving the shades of purple! :)

Rimmel is affordable ba in UK? It's a regular pasalubong from friends coming from London :)

Hi Kath! Purple is love noh? :)

Dhadha, once you get the hang of it, you'll enjoy playing with all sorts of brands and colors. :)

Thanks for the compliment sis Melandria. :)

Sis Badet, I think they're pretty affordable since drugstore brand sya. Maybelline/Revlon lang ang peg, hehe. :)

Whenever I want to wear a bit more colorful eyeshadows, I always seem to end up wearing purple! I have the same trio palette and love it!

Michelle said...

I have a Rimmel Trio quad too but in shades of black and grey. I agree. The texture is a bit chalky and the pay off isn't that great but it's good enough considering the price :) hehehe

MikiHope said...

Purples look very good with my brown eyes also! These are pretty shades. From what you are saying you have to apply wet to get a good color application? I have never done that--Hum

I've been meaning to try Rimmel products! I'm not so into purple eyeshadows, but the darkest purple in this trio reminds me of Virgina Olsen's Tinkerbelle (which I looove), when swatched!

Christy Maurer said...

I love those colors! I would like to see the blue ones too :) That should be next!

Corinne Schmitt said...

Those colors look so good on your skin tone and I love how they coordinate with your lipstick! I am such a chicken about experimenting with color. I always go with neutrals, but I love seeing these beautiful colors on others.

Only someone with complexion like yours can carry off the pink really well. It looks really nice on you!

Hello! I do have the same idea about Rimmel's eyeshadow, they are not that pigmented when you simply swatch them! But I really love this trio, the lilac color is beautiful!!

Please visit my blog and follow my blog too if you'd like, I followed you because I realised you do share cooking recipes too and I am a sucker for food ._.
