bought this when i started wearing nude eyeshadows more and have since realised that it's not really worth the $15AU i paid for it
it's a nice selection of shades, but they rub off and wear off so easily and boy can they crease...
good if you don't mind doing touch ups, not so good otherwise

I LOVE THIS! It is dirt cheap, as are most Rimmel London products.
The colours are really nice, and I like using them for a smokey eye, a base and sometimes in a pinch I use the dark brown as an eyebrow powder (I have dark brows).
I will definitely be buying this again.

So i have to say the new Glam Eyes formula is FAR better than the older quad that i have of "Smokey Brun" even though i still use the older one, i have to say, def give it a shot if you havent tried this one or have been eyeballing it- i put off since i have the old one but so glad i grabbed it since it has 4 amazing colors!
The Rimmel Glam Eyes Quads can be found in most drugstores like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, as well as mass stores like Walmart & Target. Availability & price will vary depending on your location as well as sales/discounts. The quads run around $3-4. which is a fair price, even for a cheapo like me! Rimmel also offers some coupons in the US in some of the Sunday papers.
Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad in "Smokey Brun" is probably one of my favorites of Rimmel & also from my huge eyeshadow collection. Its one of my go to neutral quads- this is great for beginners to experts, you get to four great shadows to make so many looks that are daytime and night time appropriate!
I will explain the colors clockwise from top darkest color:
1st shadow- this is the darkest of all of the four. this color is a deep dark chocolate almost black brown. it has a golden shimmer that isnt very obvious. this shadow is great for defining the crease & outer v & will also work well wet as a liner. its gorgeous & dark & i love it!
2nd shadow- this is a midtoned bronze. this is great for all over the lid & also great for the crease. as a bronze, it obviously has a metallic finish, its great all year round. bronze is a great & easy go to shadow!
3rd shadow- this is the lightest shadow of all. its a light champagne beige shadow. which will make it a great browbone highlight as well as opening up the inner tear duct area. this can also be used all over the lid w/ a darker tone in the crease for a simple & elegant look.
4th shadow- this is probably my favorite since its a light pink taupey shadow, very unique. this shadow can also be used all over the lid. its so pretty. it has a sheen to it.
All the glam eyes shadows are very soft, almost butter smooth & can be applied easily as well as blended nicely. they are far better than they once were. They are all smooth, no chunks, no fall out that i can see! they dont need a bunch of layers to show up! they are very nice shadows & these wear great as well. As i always suggests, with any shadow, esp drugstore & if you have oily skin, always use an eye primer & if you prefer, a cream base. This will make the shadows last a lot longer. with primer, these will last at least 7-8 hrs with little to no fading or creasing, on their own, id say about 5 hrs or so which really is good for d/s shadows.
The Rimmel Glam Eyes trios come in the same packaging as the trios. its def better than it used to be. These come in a square glossy black compact. There is a see thru window so you can see which shadows are inside. its great if you have more than one of these. on the back is labeling/info & also a diagram of how to & where to apply these. most drugstores are doing this now which is great for beginners but dont let it limit you. inside is the shadows. these are pretty easy to open & shut havent had any issues. the shadow are shaped in triangluar pans. all 3 are different sizes which i dont mind since i may use one more than the other. they give you most of the lid color, second most of the brow, & smallest of the defining color which i guess is right in size. The packaging is simple, compact & keeps the shadows safe! simple & it works, cant ask for much more!
Overall, Smokey Brun is a great neutral quad that can make so many looks. Its a must have i think since we all need something we can reach for & not have to think much. All four shadows are beautiful, soft, pigmented & this quad is def worth the price. love it! i think the only complaint could be is that i wish there were a matte shadow but nothing too major! I have the trio "Orion" which gives me matte shadows which i love & could add to this!

There was a 30% sale at my drugstore so i decoded to pick this palette up. Gorgeous colors!!! Not a big fan of drugstore eyeshadows because in my past experience they tend to lack pigmentation and they were super chalky. But this quad is fantastic!!! Colors are smooth and super pigmented. Love wearing this for a subtle yet soft smoky eye during the day. My fave color is the top one; a shimmery purple/taupe/gray color. Love wearing this in my crease and on my lower lashline. Def would repurchase!

I like the colors in this quad- they're very good for a retro look- however, the pigmentation isn't that heavy. Using some eye shadow primer totally compensates for that, though. It's some pretty good eye shadow for such a cheap price.

I am on the fence about this one. I really like the colors, but they don't have much pigmentation, but three of the colors are pretty light anyway, so I didn't expect them to be super pigmented anyway. The purple color is pretty disappointing, b/c it looks really nice in the pan but has pretty poor payoff even when used over primer. I did find it was better when I blended it over a similar color eyeliner, but it was still not as good as I wanted. but I do like the other 3 colors enough to keep buying it, especially since it's so inexpensive.

Not a spectacular hg eyeshadow, although it is great for a natural looking eye or a soft natural smokey eye. It was 2$ at walgreens so it wasn't a waste of money. The colors are subtle shimmery. The sponge applicators are not that great but I don't use them anyways. The eye shadow itself has a weird smell if you smell it.

The worst thing about this product is the eyeshadow applicator. It is so cheap! The material covering the plastic is not adequate in protecting your eyes from the rough cheap plastic. As long as you use your finger or a q-tip to apply the eye shadow you'll be in good shape.
The colors come in a nice variety. They all blend well together, and the two light shades contrast with each other as well as with the two dark shades. I have brown eyes, and I feel like the eye shadow makes my eyes really pop.

I wanted a palette that had colours close to my skintone.
I don't fancy this at all D:
Most of the time, I go for the darkest brown and the goldy colour.. the highlighter is okay...
I wouldn't repurchase.

Not too bad. The shadows aren't the most pigmented that I've come across. Only the two darker shades show up nicely on my skin-tone. The two lighter shades are good for an all-over-lid wash of colour. I prefer more understated shadows since I'm not the best at blending so I can get away with these without looking like a mess. Shadows are a little shimmery and have a smooth texture. Don't last long without a primer so make sure you have one around!

I was shopping for a neutral eyeshadow pallet and came across this one. This is like $4 at Target so I bought it to tried it out.
1. Super cute package
1. Poor pigmentation. Only the 2 deeper colors show.
2. Chalky. Although it looks a little shimmery, it is totally not.
Won't buy again.
