Rimmel Colour Rush Mono Eyeshadows

365 Maxxx It Up & 080 Glitzed
These are the two shadows from Rimmel I own.
I remember swatching Glitzed from one of the new testers and oh my! was I amazed by the most gorgeous shimmery silver I've seen. I had to have it!
I also picked up Maxxed It Up which is a very deep pink rose shade, which has the tiniest faint shimmer to it. The finish is pretty much satin.
I used to always wear Jet Black, in my early teens as it was a nice subtle black.
Glitzed would of been the most beautiful twinkly shadow if it wasn't just a trick overlay, being just a matte grey underneath! I felt quite upset and disappointed about this.
I'm sure I'll find a use for it though. :)
(the top pic shows the matte layer underneath better)
I think this is why I'm really looking forward to maybe hopefully owning one of the new Illamasqua Dystopia Liquid Metals.
The texture is soft on Glitzed where as Maxxx It Up is not as smooth.
I think it's a hit and miss with Rimmel shadows. It just so happens their lip products are a whole different story, I haven't come across a bad one of those yet.


  1. Thanks for the follow.

    I've found that with Rimmel's shadows that their colours are nowhere near as nice once you get past the first layer which is a massive shame because it's the colour in the first layer that you're paying for.

  2. Your welcome and Thank you!
    I hate trickery!
    It's such a shame that they just can't put it all the way through.

  3. oh my goodness, youre right. Its really a nice shimmery silver.

  4. Thats so weird i actually gave those two exact colors away in one of my giveaways once :) i will need to try them for myself!
