Recently I was sent two of the Rimmel Glam Eyes HD eye shadows to test out and today I have the first of them to show you. If you haven’t seen these yet, they’re really cute eye shadow palettes in the shape of Union Jacks. There are four different Rimmel Glam Eyes eyeshadow palettes:

Each of the Glam Eyes palettes have four different shades of eyeshadow, perfect for creating a completely made up eye with one palette. While I love the look of the Rimmel English Oak and Black Cab eyeshadow palettes, I’m a wee bit confused by both Green Park and True Union Jack! Especially True Union Jack, I’m really not sure about bright fuchsia eyeshadow.

Well today I have Rimmel Glam Eyes HD True Union Jack to show you, so you can see what this rather strange bright pink eyeshadow looks like.

I love the other 3 eyeshadow colours in the palette, I’m a bit of a sucker for blue eyeshadow! The pink eyeshadow isn’t quite as violent as it looks in the promo picture either, more of a shimmery rose pink colour than fuchsia.

On the back of the Glam Eyes palettes, there is a wee picture to show you how to apply the eyeshadow (so where each colour should go etc), so I followed the guide and this is the result…

Hmmm, not so good! The pink really just doesn’t do it for me and I found it really hard to blend, so ended up with pretty patchy eye makeup. Maybe someone a little more skilled in make-up application would be able to use this palette well, but it was too difficult for me! On the other hand I have tried the English Oak palette as well and it is gorgeous; it’s a fabulous mix of gold and bronze shadows that are super easy to apply!
