Review: Rimmel London has been churning out a lot of good products lately. I'll keep this simple and sweet since there are many other raving reviews out there. These eyeshadow pencils/crayons are very creamy and smooth. They are long-lasting and do not crease. This invention is a lazy/time-poor girl's dream. Application is so quick and easy. I usually apply a colour all over my lids and then apply a dark colour on the outer corners of my eyes. Then, using my clean ring finger, I blend all the colours to make it look cohesive. And Ta-da! You're done!

I love how pigmented these eyeshadow sticks are. My favourite combination is the Beige and Bronze. Yes, I know it's safe and kinda boring. But I love the Blue too. It's such a beautiful and daring colour. There's only one thing that I must warn you about; because the pencils are so soft and creamy, they break quite easily. So there's no point in making them mega sharp. Keep it blunt. If you want more precision, just swipe some colour off the stick with a brush.

Please let me know if you'd like to see a tutorial of me using a couple of these eyeshadow sticks.

Do you use eyeshadow sticks? What do you think of them? 


  1. YES, I LOVE SHADOW STICKS! Haha, sorry, got a bit carried away there...I have three of these, the bronze, the blue and the black! I really love the bronze, it's the perfect work-appropriate smokey eye!

    Great review, lovely, and by the way, you look absolutely gorgeous in your blog header and the profile photo!


  2. i honestly don't like the blue and green colours but the brown, bronze and purples tones look great, i love eyeshadows sticks they make life so easy!!

  3. These look so pigmented and creamy :) Rimmel have had a great year with their releases!

    1. I agree. They are my fave drugstore brand at the moment! :)

  4. OMG i want them! and yes tutorials please :)

    Do drop by my blog sometime!

    1. I'll do my best to make a tutorial soon! :)

  5. Blamed Blue and Tempting Turquoise look very pretty. I ended up buying purple and grey and black and I wasn't that impressed to be honest. xx

    1. Hey Jelena, I must admit that the purple, grey and black aren't as impressive as the other colours. They seem to be a bit more "muted" but I guess they are more wearable than the Blue and Turquoise!
