Packaging: 9/10

These shadows come in clear, plastic tubes. Each has a doe-footed applicator.

Quality: 9.75/10

Slate Grey is a deep, gunmetal grey-silver. Golden Bronze is, as it is named, a metallic golden bronze.

The Eye Shadow Paints have a thin cream formula. The shadows are richly pigmented and metallic, giving off both opaque color and shine. The formula glides across the skin without resistance, dries quickly, and then does not budge, crease, or fade for the entire day. I tested these both for 8 hours without primer applied, and they remained crease-less. They are, consistent with Rimmel’s claims, also waterproof (though any rubbing will make them flake off if there’s water).

These do dry and adhere tightly to the skin (which is what makes them so long-wearing and crease-resistant), so people with very dry skin will want to avoid this formula. Those with mature skin will also probably want to opt for something that is not so metallic in finish. But other than that, these are fantastic eye shadows for anyone looking for pigmented, crease-free shadows.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

These are extremely easy to apply. I did not even have to use a brush with Golden Bronze–I simply used the doe-foot applicator to apply the color to the lids, and to blend out whatever remained through the crease. It looked like I had applied the color to the crease and blended it with a brush. With Slate Grey, I utilized a brush for the crease area since it’s a darker color and needed more blending.

This formula dries and sets quickly, so do one eye at a time if you are blending the color. There’s no need to use a primer.

Price: 9.5/10

For under $5.00 you get 0.23 fl oz (7 ml) of product.
