This is a part of the UK haul, obviously you would have guessed, I was still trying this one out. I have to say I dig shimmer and sheen for eyes, shimmer as in not loose and glittery, but packed together, which would blend beautifully for eyes, but I have been wanting to get some basic matte ones too as they are indispensable too as for the crease or day look, mate would look best. So, I got this one plum shade as I don’t have many plums, I do like singles better than palettes sometimes and hence this shadow.
The packing is very cute, little rectangular one with the Rimmel symbol. The print on the shadow is so pretty and the color is actually best suited to green eyes, but I do wear hazel-colored lenses often and this would not be bad.
The texture is okay, more towards hard-ish in feel and not so pigmented, but average types, where you would need to swirl the brush much to pick up a lot, but due to the color, I would say little goes a long way. The color comes out almost matte and blends beautifully into a soft plum for me.
I also found it a little powdery but not chalky I would say and since it blends softly, I did not find much fallout too, it was bearable.
The shade I must say was instant love, when I tried it on all over the lid. I fell in love with plum shadows I must say and the plum made for a very very pretty smokey eye for me. I would not go straight to black smokey eyes since I am not so good at it still, but deeper browns and this kind of plum would be my go to smokey look. I really really liked the plum for my complexion and eyes. I paired it up with a little black for the crease and lined eyes lightly and voila!
I like to pair it up with some pink-based lips and it looked good too. Like they mentioned on the pack, you can pair the look up with pink shadow or deep plum liner too. I think that would look great as well!!
Last Word on Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow – Plum Romance:
I would say I love the color and plum would look good for Indian skin and more for lighter skin too. The texture is not so soft, but manageable and I quite like how softly it blends. It would need a base if you want it to last for 4 hours or so. For me, plain old plum is super too. I would say the shadow is good for a nice plain matte plum, soft to blend, beautiful on the eyes.
3.5 on 5.
PS: Many more lipsticks and Covergirl stuff reviews coming up that my mom got from Australia. Also, a lot of L’oreal stuff too. I have been out on vacation, so missing in action, apologies again.
