When I’m looking for eyeshadow, I want a product that’s going to be easy to use, last long and not fussy – no falling pigment, creasing, moving around…you get the idea. I rarely wear eyeshadow so when I do decide to put some on, I want it to really deliver.

I recently tried Rimmel’s Glam’Eyes HD Eyeshadows in 029 Royal Rose, a drugstore palette that promises vibrant & intense colour for 8 hours that’s crease, fade and smudge-proof. It can be used wet or dry to create a variety of looks.

For a drugstore product, it definitely delivered decent pigmentation and I did like that there were five shades in a palette. It is on the small side (which I don’t mind since I don’t use it often) so if you’re looking for something that will last you longer-term, I might suggest looking at individual shadows or larger palettes that offer more product.

I wasn’t disappointed by this palette, but I wasn’t blown away either – it’s what I’d expect from a drugstore product like this and is an excellent choice if you’re wanting to add something a little different to your routine without splurging on high-end products. For me, these weren’t colours I’d typically reach for but I loved how they appeared against my skin, so the fact that they’re low-commitment on the cash front makes them a fun option.

If yo want to try them yourself, find them at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Target, London Drugs or Jean Coutu (price unknown).
