Today I'd like to tell you about the newly launched Magnif'Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner from Rimmel London. These Eyeshadow and Eyeliners are dual tipped pens that come with a rounded eyeshadow in one end and a pointed eyeliner in the other end.

Both they eyeshadow and eyeliner are incredibly pigmented and as claimed, they are creaseproof, transferproof and also waterproof - in fact, when I first tried them on my hand, it took several attempts scrubbing my hands with water to get it off. But fret not, if you're using an eye makeup remover for waterproof eye makeup, then it comes off your eyes easily without the need to tug, rub or pull at the sensitive eye area.

As the eyeshadow part is so pigmented, I find that a single swipe over my eyelids gives me more than sufficient colour. You just need to be aware that when you apply it, you only have a few moments to blend it out (I prefer to do this with my finger), before it dries and is then budge-proof.

The eyeliner much the same, and as it is also waterproof, it is suitable for use on both lash and waterline, and again, it simply stays put all day, - even on my eyes that easily water several times throughout the day.

The Magnif'Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner comes in four colour combinations, with a combination of matte, shimmer and pear l finishes. 

  • #001 Back to Blacks with Matte Black Liner / Gun Metal Grey Shadow, Pearl with Glitter
  • #002 Kissed By A Rose Gold with Brown Low Pearl Liner / Rose Gold Shadow, Medium Pearl
  • #003 Queens Of The Bronzed Age with Gold High Pearl with Glitter Liner / Bronze Medium Pearl Shadow
  • #004 Dark Side Of Blue with Cobalt Matte Blue Liner / Dark Grey Low Pearl Shadow

The first three pens are classic shades of brown, bronze, gold and blacks, whilst the fourth one is a little more daring with the cobalt blue liner.
I've tried #002 Kissed By A Rose Gold and #004 Dark Side Of Blue, and conservative as I am, I absolutely love the first one, as it is the type of colour that I am usually reaching for.
As for the second one, I have to admit that I am a little unsure of the blue liner! I know that I will definitely be using the grey eyeshadow part, but doubt that the blue liner with used many times.

Overall, I have to say that I am really impressed with these Magnif'Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner from Rimmel London. The quality is exceptional, and in spite of having combination skin, and subsequently also greasy eyelids, it simply stays put all day, even without using a primer!! And I love too that it is a 2-in-1 product so if I'm in a rush in the morning, I don't have to search high and low for a eyeshadow or liner that matches, everything is right there. Again, I really enjoy the shade combo in the #002 Kissed By A Rose Gold and already know I will reach for it frequently, and already have plans on getting my fingers on the #003 Queens Of The Bronzed Age.
