Rimmel Magnif'eyes Dual Ended Shadow + Kajal Liner in Back To Blacks, Pink & Purple Rain, & Dark Side of Blue| Review & Swatches
Price: $6.49 * Buy At: Kmart * Size: 0.7g
The Rimmel Magnif'eyes Dual Ended Shadow + Kajal Liners are a cream shadow and kajal liner duo. They come in five shades, you can see my review of the other two from the collection HERE. Back To Blacks has a black kajal liner and a shimmery gunmetal cream shadow. Pink & Purple Rain has a dark purple kajal liner and a shimmery light pink cream shadow. Dark Side of Blue has a bright cobalt kajal liner and a satin dark grey cream shadow.
The Magnif'eyes Duos consist of a kajal liner and a cream shadow stick, both of which are twist up products. To state it simply: I absolutely love these. I purchased the other two shades from the line, which I already posted a review of, and I just had to go back and pick up the rest of the line, something I never do. Both the shadow and the liner are so super creamy and just glide onto the skin. This formulation is consistent across all five duos, which is really great. The liners and shadows are very intense and pigmented, and the color lasts all day on the eyes, and actually can be difficult to remove! The liner and show set quickly on the eyes, so if you are looking to blend it out, you have to work quickly. The product does not need to be set, but does work great as an eyeshadow base.

The Rimmel Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner is a cream shadow stick and khol kajal eyeliner duo. The range has only five shades, and the two I picked up are Kissed by a Rose Gold & Queens of the Bronzed Age. Kissed by a Rose Gold has a gorgeous metallic rose gold cream shadow accompanied by a dark brown liner. Queens of the Bronzed Age has a metallic bronze cream shadow and a shimmery champagne liner. I don’t usually gravitate towards dual ended products, but these duos are not gimmicky whatsoever. The cream shadow and liner are both amazingly creamy and smooth. Queens of the Bronzed Age and Kissed by a Rose Gold both have consistent formulas with intense pigmentation. What makes these duos even better is that they are smudge proof, waterproof and incredibly long lasting. The only downside to the formula is that it sets pretty quickly, so if you are wanting to blend out the color, you will need to work quickly.

The Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy (10) is a bright yellow based orange with a matte finish.
The Color Tattoos come in a durable feeling, somewhat heavy, clear pot with a black lid. Fierce & Tangy is very pigmented and applies very opaque. It can easily be sheered out to achieve a subtle orange in the crease or on the lids. The product does become less creamy over time, but still maintains a smooth texture and application. You can also rub off the drier top layer of product to get back to the creamy texture. Once it has set, Fierce & Tangy does not budge and it does not crease on me. The color loses intensity when it gets wet, so it's not quite waterproof, but it doesn't smear or smudge and is very water resistant.

The Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in (70) Barely Branded is a shimmery champagne cream shadow in a heavier pot with a screw on lid.
When new, the Color Tattoos are quite creamy and smooth, but they do dry out over a period of time. Barely Branded applies very smoothly and evenly to the lid. This pretty shade can be used as a lid color or as a base for powder shadows. Once Barely Branded sets, it does not rub off or smudge and is very water resistant. Unfortunately Barely Branded does crease a little bit on me, but since it is a cream product you can easily rub it in with your finger to blend out the part that was creasing.

The Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint is a bright reflective off-white liquid shadow in a lipgloss-like package.
The Rimmel Shadow Paints have a doe foot applicator, very similar to the applicator of a lip gloss. The formula is not runny and also not thick, it has a perfect consistency in my opinion. The application of Beige is interesting because you cannot really blend it out once you apply it to the lids, because as the name suggests, it applies like paint. Beige dries quite quickly and can look patchy and odd if you try to blend it out with your finger. If you want a more sheer color, I would suggest wiping off the applicator a little before applying. Unfortunately it does crease on me if I wear it all day, but it isn't as bad as some products. I don't think this style of product is for everyone, but I think it's worth a try.

The Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in My Two Cents is a shimmery bronze cream shadow. The product comes in a cute, colorful box.
The Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow is extremely creamy and smooth. The texture is just like butter and they are much creamier than the Maybelline Color Tattoos. My Two Cents has nice pigmentation and applies very evenly. It has a shimmery finish, but I would not quite call it metallic. Once the shadow sets, it doesn't smudge and doesn't move. It is also very water resistant, only coming off with soap or makeup remover. My Two Cents does not crease on my lids, but my lids don't tend to be oily.

The Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sparkle Green is a dark teal green cream shadow with silver glitter, obviously in the form of a jumbo eye pencil. The Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils come in white plastic tubes with a clear lid. The clear lid is fairly cheap and does crack after a little bit if you are not careful when putting the lid on (this has happened to my Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk)
Sparkle Green applies pretty smoothly, especially for being a product that contains glitter. It applies fairly evenly, but does need some building up to make the color completely opaque. Sparkle Green could be a base for other teal shadows or for a teal smokey eye, but can also be worn alone or as eye liner. While other Nyx Jumbo Pencils are safe in the waterline, I would not suggest using Sparkle Green in the waterline since it contains glitter.

The Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold (45) is a reflective antique gold cream eye shadow or eye shadow base.
Just like the other shades of this product, the formula isn't the creamiest product, but it still easily glides on super evenly. You can use one or two swipes to get an opaque gold, or get a sheer gold wash of color by blending them out gently with your finger. You can apply this product with a brush, but I find that they are best applied with a clean finger. I don't know about the claim for 24 hour wear, but Bold Gold does last on the lids all day by themselves. This makes Bold Gold ideal as a base for gold shadows (I like to layer Urban Decay's Half Baked over Bold Gold) or as a base to warm up brown shadows. This can extend the wear of most powder shadows. With the all day wear, I don't find that Bold Gold creases, transfers or moves around the lid. In addition to the great wear of this product, Bold Gold is waterproof and smudge-proof once it settles and dries. The Color Tattoo line is a great pick for humid weather, swimming, oily eyelids or anything that causes your shadow to become wet.

The Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 04 Continuous Almond is an ivory jumbo shadow pencil that is new to the drugstore.
I am a big fan of the formula of this product. It went on so smoothly and doesn't pull on my eyelids at all. It dries to a smudge-proof and fairly waterproof state quickly and makes a nice shadow base. I did notice that it creased by itself, but it held up pretty well with a powder shadow layered on top of it. The only downside is that the product goes down really quickly when used all over the lids.
Something very different about this shadow pencil is that it sort of oxidized like some foundations do. After 5 minutes or so, I noticed that Continuous Almond got a little darker and more pink than when I applied it.

The Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Copper Canyon is a cream shadow quad that consists of a shimmery light blue, light yellow, red toned brown & yellow toned brown.
The texture of each of these shadows is very creamy. With one swipe you get more of a wash of color, but they are easily built up to the shade in the pan & in my swatches. The only downside to these cream shadow quads is that they aren't very water resistant, unlike the Maybelline Color Tattoos. However, the Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows are smoother, come in a wider variety of colors & are obviously not single shades.
