Review: Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Professional Liquid Liner in Black Glamour

This is Rimmel's liquid eyeliner available at Boots/Superdrug at £5.29 for 3.5ml. It is in the average packaging for a liquid eyeliner but in a lengthened conical shape. The brush is very thin and has just the right amount of flexibility to allow for an easy application ensuring perfect control at all times. This forms a very thin line and can easily be formed with one "pick-up" (for want of an even slightly better word/phrase!) of product, but can easily be perfected with a little more eyeliner. The pigmentation of the eyeliner is fantastic, it's not ridiculously sheer like I've found some eyeliners to be! It is a lovely black with a little shine when placed on the lid.

Application is very quick and simple, the texture of the eyeliner is very smooth and the formula strong and budge-proof without it feeling like it's sticking to your eyelid and is very easy to remove - it can even be taken off with lots of water, but obviously that's not recommended! It wears very well, stayed on me for above 9hrs without any issues aside from when I rubbed my eyes and they felt a little uncomfortable near the end of the day. I do like this eyeliner a lot and prefer it to a lot of cheaper versions.
