for there is in London all that life can afford.

For as long as I can remember, my favourite place in the world has been London, England. I have been fortunate enough to visit there several times over the years. London never ceases to thrill and amaze me.

Which is why I simply had to pick up Rimmel's Glam'Eyes HD eyeshadow quad. (The shadows are in the shape of the Union Jack - perfection!)


The quad I chose was in 005 English Rose. My favourite shadow colours are warm browns and plum colours, so this was a fantastic addition to my collection. The eyeshadows are soft and shimmery, which I love! The only downside to the cute Union Jack shape, is that it makes it harder to get into the crease, outer corner, and highlight colours. My suggestion would be to use a tapered crease brush when applying the shadows.

This was my finished look, using Rimmel's Glam'Eyes HD 005 English Rose quad!


Have you tried any of Rimmel's Glam'Eyes quads?

  28. Nice shade and your eyes colour is fantastic!
    I've visited London several times as my sister stays there but its not the best city I've ever visited...
    In fact it was disappointing 'cause I expected more from a multi-famous city like London. Its good to visit it for 3 days ..but thats it!
