Majorly Magnificent


Magnif'Eyes Shadow

What It Is: Rimmel London has entered the pro palette game, with three jaw-droppingly beautiful eye shadow collections (called Magnif’Eyes) that can be mixed and matched for a huge range of nude / smokey / contoured eye looks. You might be tempted to draw some comparisons to a certain collection of high end eye shadow palettes in similar colour schemes, but these sets hold their own, with a unique mix of shimmers and mattes in three different shade ranges:

Grunge Glamour – A classic palette for that smokey look, with greys and pewters, along with some high contrast metallics for a modern touch.

London Nudes Calling – Pretty pinks and plums pair nicely together with some dark taupes. Great for a soft, romantic look.

Keep Calm & Wear Gold – I think this one is my favourite; it’s great if you love warm tones like gold, brown, and taupe, and would really set off hazel or brown eyes.

Having tried the palettes out, I can tell you I was seriously impressed by their pigmentation. A little dab of any shade on my brush was more than enough to create a high impact contour. I liked the natural sequence of each palette too, which made it kind of a no brainer to pair together. If you’re up on your beauty lingo I would warn of a bit of fallout – you’ll want to blow excess powder off your brush before applying and for sure, start with an eye primer. All in all those, these are so affordable and a great addition to your beauty stash!

Who It’s For: Your beauty-obsessed bestie. Your tweenage / teenage nieces. Yourself, obvs!

What It Costs: $14.99

Where It’s At: Drugstores and mass market retailers where Rimmel London is sold across Canada.

BONUS ENTRY into my Quo Cosmetics giveaway, while we’re on the subject of beautiful things…what do you think of these palettes? Which one would be your fave?
