Rimmel "State of Grace" Glam Eyes Quad

Hey guys! I been staring at this Rimmel quad for a while now and today was my first time to actually swatch, try it on and play with it. YAY! ^.~

This color really got my attention mainly because of the bright blues and purple. I purchased this having HIGH HOPES it'll be super pigmented and pretty good for the value. So far I am liking it but not LOVING IT.

Pigmentation is pretty good but feels a bit cakey? I can't seem to figure out the word for what I'm trying to describe here haha it's more frosty then shimmery. Surprisingly there was minimal fall out which was good. The brighter blue was actually the most pigmented color out of the whole palette.

I used NYX jumbo pencil in "cottage cheese" on my lids as a primer.

I applied the silvery grey on my lids then applied the light sky blue all above the upper lids. Then I blended the brighter blue starting from the outer corners to the mid half of my lids. Then I got the deep purple and blended into my inner crease of my eyes for a dramatic effect.

Below I applied the purple in my outer v, then the bright blue, then the silvery grey in the inner corner of my eyes for a gradient effect!

Applied urban decay's 24/7 pencil in ZERO (black) on my upper lids and my lower water line. Curled my lashes with my Shu uemura lash curler and coated w/ Loreal telescopic explosion mascara. Very minimal compared to my usual routine. hehe I usually apply falsies but today I got too lazy!

OVERALL: B-

The colors from this palette looks pigmented but I'm not sure of the wear time. My favorite drugstore palettes are definitely NYX followed by Wet N Wild Trio.
