As part of my haul I bought the Rimmel Traffic Stopping eye shadow trio in Over the Limit.
I chose this shadow because the lovely Tanya Burr used it in her Miley Cyrus make up tutorial, and I loved the look she created with it!
First thing I'd like to say about this is that the packaging is extremely fiddly to open! It took me ages just to open the little pallet, but once you figure out how it opens it's fine.
It comes with a sponge tip applicator (I never use these though, always use brushes), and you get 3 colours in the pallet.
These shadows can be used wet or dry and on the back of the pallet there are instructions on how to apply the shadows.
You get 3 dome shaped, baked shadows.
The golden colour is the lid colour, the brown colour is for the crease and the outer corner and the lightest colour is the highlight colour.
Tanya Burr's look using this is slightly different to that though, so do check out her video to see how she uses this pallet!
I compared the colours in this eyeshadow trio to my MAC shadows and discovered they are pretty good dupes for MAC eye shadows!
The MAC shadow is on my top finger, the Rimmel shadow is on the bottom one.
MAC Amber Lights
You can't really tell by these pictures, but the MAC Shadows are a lot more pigmented than the Rimmel ones.
I had to apply quite a lot of the Rimmel eye shadow in order to get the same colour pay off as with the MAC shadows.
Here I've swatched the Rimmel shadows again, this time quite lightly though. As you can see the colours are quite sheer.
The colours are really pretty, but I don't think the pigmentation of these shadows is as great as I'd hoped for. I will definitely be using a primer with this eye shadow trio!
However this little pallet is still pretty good value. I bought it for £4.99 from Superdrug, and I will definitely be using it to try to recreate Tanya Burr's gorgeous Miley Cyrus look!
What do you think? And have any of you tried any of the Rimmel Traffic Stopping shadows?
