Rimmel London Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows - Black Cab and English Oak

Rimmel London Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows (available here) - $6

Rimmel's first creamy powder eyeshadow with Velvet-HD technology creates colour that looks perfect under any light. Prismatic pigments catch light at multiple angles, reflecting the ideal colour for the light you are in. Unique palettes of 4 shades expertly coordinated to work in sequence, adapting as light changes to give perfectly complementary effect in any light. Crease-proof colour lasts all day.

The Rimmel Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows are available in about 8 shades, and I got to try out two of them - the gray/black/silver combination "Black Cab" and the brown/bronze combination "English Oak."  The first thing I noticed about these palettes is, of course, the Union Jack pattern to the eye shadows.  I loved the design right up until I realized none of the brushes I have are small enough to pick up the shadow without messing up the design.  Each quad (or Jack :P) also comes with instructions on how to use the colours - a tiny diagram detailing the placement of each colour.

English Oak is the perfect combination of brown and bronzes and a pretty palette if you love neutrals.

A combination of black, greys, and a silvery colour, this would make a perfect palette for those of you looking for an intense smokey look.

My Thoughts on the Rimmel Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows

I love the colour combinations in both these quads - perfectly complimented shades that would work easily together - and the compact size makes it ideal for travel.  Because of the texture of the eyeshadows and the pattern, the sponge applicators provided are actually quite useful with application.  I wish the little patches of colour were a little larger, though, just so they would be a little easier to use.  Also, the colours are all a tad shimmery and adding a darker matte shade would have been great.
