Reviews: Rimmel royal gloss and BYS animal instincts eyeshadow

Ok these are my first reviews, I shall be reviewing the lip gloss and eyeshadow pallet in last post.
First up:

Rimmel royal gloss in 101 candy bar in a 14ml tube.
I bought this as was $3 at Coles and I love lip glosses.

Packaging: Tube is pretty cute with the crown and the pinkness. But otherwise the package is eh.
It says non sticky and it isnt.

Longevity: I had this on for about couple of hours and drank and was quite good for a while but then the glossyiness went away and was left with a thin moisture cover.

Colour: Its like a pale pink, like candy in the tube and comes out quite pale pink on lips. This is on my arm.

Smell: It smells nice, like jelly beans so thats a plus and theres a little bit of tingling on lips for couple seconds, which is odd but I notice lots of  glosses do this, maybe this is like plumping?

Would Iget this again: Most likely, im quite a bargain hunter and tend to get things when theyre on sale unless I really like it so this would be one of those products which I would get if on sale again but otherwise yes I would.
Its not sticky, its lightweight, smells great, makes lips look kissable and add a pretty shine.

Next up is BYS animal instincts eyeshadow quad.

I call this the zebra one and there is also a leopard one with golds and browns which im defs getting next.
I do love BYS eyeshadows, there so pigmented and bright and yeah, I use them a lot. I got this one for $5 at cosmetics plus.

Packaging: the packaging is minimal but I dont mind, as im not going to pull it out and go wow look at my eyeshadow hahah. it fits into the palm of my hand and compact and perfect for my makeup bag and comes with eyeshadow applicator, not that i will use it...
 Ok for colours: Black (a) is first then dark blue (b), then zebra with grey (c) and lastly zebra with white stripes (d)

Colours: In this quad there is a very black metallic (a) which is the blackest eyeshadow I now own, its great! Majority of black eyeshadows I own are more grey but this is black black and slighly metallic, next to it is a white/black (d) shade and when used is like a light silvery grey, above is a metallic navy blue (b) which is lovely! and last is grey/black (c) which comes out a lovely silvery metallic darker grey. I love the colours and the pigmention, it just doesnt show well on my arms as I have big pores but lovely on the eyes.

 d, c, b, a.
The lighting does not do it justice, aka the colours look brown... wtf

Yeah the lighting is odd but in reality the greys are beautiful silvers, the metallic navy blue is navy blue and the black is black!

Longevity: I think this eyeshadows last quite a while and even longer with primers. Easily lasting a day at work!

Would I buy this again: Hells yeah!!! great price, great pigmentation, beautiful colours, pretty patterns and yeah. I have a feeling these wont be around for long so I should probs buy another, hahaha.
