I love the Retro Glam look from Rimmel London – I posted a ‘look’ a couple of days ago with black liner dotting under the eyes. So, now I have some products to swatch I can show you how they fare.
So, colour-wise, from the top: Rich Russet, Mercury Silver, Manganese Purple and Slate Grey (there is one other, Golden Bronze, that I don’t have here). If you’re edging full-on for the sixties look, then I’d recommend Mercury Silver. They’re certainly quite long lasting but do take a bit of drying so when applying go light, let it dry, then add another coat. I actually didn’t find the wand applicator all that helpful so I’d advise transferring to a brush before coating the lids.
Personally, I find pen applicators impossible to use, but if you’ve got that hang of it (kudos) then these tips (Thick & Thin is shown with Precision Micro Liner) are great for a graphic look. Thick & Thin is really easy to use and there is a marked difference between the thick line and the thin one, all from one tip. Clever. I know a make-up artist who wears very little make-up herself, but she does one single dot in line with her pupil on the lower lash-line and it is so effective.. it makes people concentrate more on your eyes when they’re talking to you but they probably haven’t worked out why! The Thick & Thin Liner here would be great for that. These aren’t supposed to launch until July but thanks to an eagle-eye’d BBB commenter, who spotted them on the Superdrug site, you can get the Thin & Thin Liner, and the Shadow Paints now. The Shadow Paints are £5.49 as are the liners. Shadow Paints HERE, Liner HERE .

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
