Rimmel Magnif'Eyes

I was doing my usual weekly rummage through the Boots aisle last week, yep I go there weekly to see what’s new 🙂 I can obviously see the products online, but it’s nice to see them in the flesh too. I came across these new Rimmel Magnif’Eyes while on my weekly visit and they were on 3 for 2 so I had to pick some up to show and tell here on Beautynook 🙂

I would have picked up more shades of the Rimmel Magnif’Eyes but the Boots I was in literally only had three shades that hadn’t been open and messed up. I think there’s 5 shades in the collection to choose from.

In the words of Rimmel: ‘Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Double-Ended Shadow and Liner.The ultimate tool for defining your eyes. Ultra long-lasting, waterproof, crease proof, transfer proof formula will stay put all day.Create endless combinations in 2 easy, mistake-proof steps with our highly pigmented double ended stay true shadow and kohl kajal liner; from matte to shimmer to pearly finishes.’

So they are basically a double ended pencil. One one end you get a cream shadow, that’s the domed shaped pencil.

Then, on the other end there is a kohl kajal, which is the pointy pencil.

Each pencil comes with a different colour cream shadow and kajal that compliment eachother.

 

Here are the three shades I have up close and swatched.

001 Back To Black.

On first swatch the Rimmel Magnif’Eyes are bloody lovely! They’re creamy and pigmented. The fact that they are deemed waterproof, I’m wondering if the kajals would be good for inside the waterline, I will definitely be trying that out, the blue one is calling my name 🙂

I can’t say if they are transfer proof or creaseless as of yet, they have yet to make it on my eyes. But I did swatch them on my arm together. Here’s a shot of them in natural light.

The retractable pencils are really soft so as you use them they will wear down, making me think think the obvious thought, the kajal liner won’t be as precise as that happens. I think on the cream eyeshadow end the wearing will be ok as you could probably be using it on a larger surface area….

They are available in store now or you can pick them up on the Boots website here. They cost 9.99 but are on 3 for 2 at the minute in Boots if any of them take your fancy 🙂

What do you think? Will you be picking any of the shades up? I would love to know your thoughts.

    I think the brown one would have been better with the darker colour as the liner and the lighter one as the shadow!
    I’d say you’re right about the kajal liner, the point will wear down with use and it’ll end up a little fat stump like the shadow at the other end! Impressive staying power with the swatches at least. My eyelids have greasier skin though, so I wonder how would it last on them…Great review and swatches. I’d love to see how they look on your eyes when you get a chance to try them out!

      I’ll definitely have a play around with them and show pics on social media, and I totally agree with you about the brown one, it would be more useful the other way around!! I have oily lids too and so I don’t think I would use the cream shadows just on their own, I would probably apply a powder shadow on top. 🙂 xxx
