Rimmel London Magnif-Eyes Crimson Palette – Review, Swatches and 2 Looks

I’ve been really impressed with Rimmel’s eyeshadows ever since I grabbed the Spice Edition palette. So when I saw a pink version of that palette on someone’s Instagram page, I knew I had to have it.

And when I saw the shades in Urban Decay’s latest Naked palette, the Naked Cherry palette, tracking down the Rimmel London palette became my mission.

I don’t know if this palette is available in Canada, as I haven’t seen it at any drugstores, but I know it’s available in the States, having picked it up at Walgreens during a 40% off sale.

The packaging and layout are fairly standard for a drugstore palette – clear cover, sans-mirror and a dual-ended brush (I tossed the brush away because I’m emotionally attached to my Real Techniques and Sigma Brushes). The palette contains 12 shades, with a mix of mattes, metallics and shimmers – a really good selection of finishes.

The shadows swatched beautifully! For about 10 of the 12 shades, I only needed one swipe of product. I’m a pretty harsh critic when it comes to how eyeshadows swatch because I’m all about how they apply with a brush, but with an extra dip or two of the brush, I was able to get good pigmentation onto my lids.

The formula of these shadows was just like the Spice Edition palette, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Impressively pigmented, only a small amount of kick-up and very blendable. This is a really solid drugstore palette – I’m very pleased with my purchase!
