I got 2 shades in these, Bad Girl Bronze and Trespassing Taupe. I had been wanting the comparable one from the NYX line, but none of the stores near me carry it, the closest store is half an hour away. So I tried the Rimmel brand.
I am quite impressed!! The taupe is quite matte on my eyelids, which I love. Many years ago, I used an Estee Lauder eyeshadow duo that had a taupe called Driftwood Brown. I have long since looked for the dupe, none have come close. Until now!! This is pretty dead-on a dupe of that to me, and Driftwood Brown was HG for me for years and years and years and I was crushed when it was d/c. The Trespassing Taupe also is great for my mature eyes. It does not accent the lines/sagging lids and really flatters my grey/blue eyes. Very natural-looking and every bit as flattering and gorgeous as Driftwood Brown was. Taupe being gorgeous..? Yep!!! When used properly and to accent something, yes, it is beautiful. Almost any eyeshadow I have used lately makes me look tired (pinks to purples to browns to greens and everything in-between!), this, taupe though it is, makes me look awake!!
Bad Girl Bronze..Gorgeous!! I use this on my bottom lashes as a regular liner, with a regular black liner on my top lids above my lashes, the taupe pencil as a shadow, and some black or black/brown mascara, and it is my latest fave everyday look!!
These also do not budge!! Like, I tried wiping with a tissue and they still stuck in place!!
Not irritating for me, no smearing or smudging..they just behave very well!!
I plan on getting more shades and back-ups of these shades..very pleased!!
