Review & Swatchfest: Rimmel Glam'Eye Quad Eyeshadow in Precious Crown

Rimmel Glam'Eye Quad Eyeshadow in Precious Crown
Rimmel's Glam'Eyes Quad Eye Shadow in Precious Crown looks like it could be a distant cousin to Urban Decay's Smoked Eyeshadow Palette. With four deep, blackened blackened jewel tones, it has the makings of the ultimate drugstore smoky palette. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be.

Starting at the top and going counterclockwise, the palette comes with a matte black with silver glitter, a blackened navy, blackened forest green, and blackened plum. Of the four shades, the green performed the best, but none were stellar. All were a little chalky and hard to build up to get the pigmentation seen below. When put to use, the shadows take a lot to pack on so most of the color is lost. Ultimately you are left with four grey-ish shades that hint at the color of the pressed powder they originated from.

Unfortunately, this wasn't the first quad to let me down. I had a similar disappointing experience with the Green Sapphire. Truthfully, I shouldn't have expected more from quads that were priced 50% off in the semi-annual CVS beauty sale, but a girl can hope! If you are tempted by this, I would steer clear - even at $5 a quad.
