Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette

A little while back, Rimmel released their brand new Magnif’Eyes palettes which are designed to be perfect for ‘contouring your eyes’. I was quite intrigued to read this and just had to try one out for myself. When I finally managed to get my hands on one, I had the hard decision of which to trial run. There are 3 palettes available, each being every nude lovers dream; Keep Calm and Wear Gold, Grunge Glamour and London Nudes Calling. I finally settled on Keep Calm and Wear Gold – perfect for everyday.


The packaging of each palette is nothing special really and it doesn’t look all that pretty, but it is nice and small making it perfect for travelling and there’s a little ‘window’ so that you can see all the colours without opening the palette. It feels pretty sturdy and all the shadows are nicely compact in each of the rectangle compartments. It comes with the usual sponge type applicator and a long thin mirror.


There are 8 shades in each palette, this palette holds 3 mattes, 2 slight shimmers and 3 metallic style shimmers. All creams, browns and golds. The first 2 shades are quite light, not extremely pigmented but useable, the next 3 shades are all beautifully creamy metallic shimmery golds with high pigmentation and the last 2 shades are basically mattes with speckled glitter, one being gold, one being brown.


In terms of ‘eye contouring palette’ I’m a bit confused. There are 2 darkish matte shades that work well to contour but there’s no highlighter.. There is a light shade, but personally, I don’t think it’s light enough to pull up to the brow bone or use in the inner corner of the eye. I would say that the colours do shape and define the eye, other than the light shades and overall it’s a stunning little palette.


I’ve reached for this palette near enough everyday, it’s perfect for a simple daytime smokey look and easy to achieve a darker, more intense look too. It only takes a few minutes to apply and blend out these shades, making it great for anyone just starting out and doesn’t want anything too full on. 90% of the shadows are highly pigmented so I’d say for £7.99 it’s a bargain.

    I have always wanted to try a drugstore palette but always worries they wouldn’t be pigmented enough. This looks like a perfect everyday palette with gorgeous shades that I love! x
