Rimmel Magnif’eyes shadow stick/liner duos. A first impression.


The Rimmel London kohl kajal shadow liners  

are a nice idea. They are a versatile way to quickly apply your shadow and liner. I usually use products like this as a shadow base, because they usually stay creamy and crease easily. I also usually don’t use this certain type of eye liner because it tends to move around a lot on my eyes. Let’s see if this product is any different.

001 Back to the Blacks

This one I was not too fond of. The charcoal color shadow stick has small chunks of glitter in it. While it is still creamy, I just do not like the actual glitter chinks….in anything, but that is a personal preference. The liner is a matter black, but it is a bit patchy and not really that deep of a black. I love the Rimmel exaggerate liners, they are creamy and true to color, so this duo really disappointed me.

002 Kissed by a Rose Gold

I 10000% LOVE this one. The shadow is beautiful. It really is a rose gold with a sheen finish. The liner is a deep matte brown and looks beautiful. I would also like to mention that this shadow dried all the way- it is great!

003 Queens of the Bronzed Age

The shadow of this duo is good. I like it and it dries to where it does not budge. The liner however, is not my favorite, as a liner! I love this in the water line, and I am really excited to use it that way, but as a top lid liner? I prefer matte for that. But, it does serve a really great purpose, so another win.

004 Dark Side of the Blue

First, let me start off saying that this products name made me think of Sci-Fi movies, and that makes me happy.

The shadow with this duo is a bit patchy to compare to the others and does again have the glitter chunks. This does however make a great smoky eye base! The liner….holy cow. It is so electric blue! It does not go anywhere and it is my only shade like it- and I have a ton of liners.

005 Pink and Purple Rain

I think this is the 2nd product in two weeks that I have talked about that referenced Prince’s Purple Rain. I just think that was a funny tid bit. The shadow on with this duo is the most sheer of the bunch. The creamy glitter also clumps up when applied ( as the swatch shows). I am glad one of the duos came with a plum liner, but compared to the exaggerate plum liner, this one is a bit patchy.


Over all…

The shadows, all but one (the one in duo 001), dry to an unbundgeable product. I absolutely love that quality in these shadows, it makes it possible for me to use them as a stand alone shadow, rather than a shadow base. Besides the matte black and plum, I like the formula for the kohl kajal liners. I still don’t prefer them over anything else, but then again, this is just my first impression, so any of these opinions could change!

I will update you with looks and reviews involving these products, if you are interested.

Thanks for reading,

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Concentrated Crayons (Entire Collection!!)Hot or Not?

These crayons make an AMAZING eye shadow base. They even aren’t too bad on their own. They are much cleaner and easier to use than the regular color tattoos. The are (obviously) in a crayon format and they screw up from the bottom, it is pretty nice.

I have swatches for each individual shade and some special comments for a few. Please keep in mind that the darker shades are not bendable, by that I mean they set very fast. Continue reading “Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Concentrated Crayons (Entire Collection!!)Hot or Not?”
