I've wanted to try out a gold eyeshadow pencil for a while because I think gold is a great everyday shade when it comes to eye makeup. It matches basically everything and is very versatile. So when I saw the Rimmel Kate Eyeshadow Stick in 100 Rose Gold, I just knew I have to give it a go. Even though I was initially (and still am) looking for an amber gold eyeshadow stick or eye pencil, I'm still glad I got this one. There are other colours available including Deep Amethyst, Electric Saphire and Pure Turquoise. So if you like bold eye makeup, you can check those out as well.
The Kate Eyeshadow stick is a thick pencil which can be applied all over the lid, just on the inner eye corners or whichever way you like to wear it. The eyeshadow stick is very easy to apply, it glides on smoothly and is also great for carrying around in case you want to touch up. When I wore it with no eyeshadow base, I found that it lasted about 3 hours before it settled in my crease. Then I tried it out with an eyeshadow base which usually holds my eyeshadows all day and with this product, it held up for about 6 hours. I think this is because it is a cream formula as opposed to my powder eyeshadows.
There is one thing I really don't like about this product and it's that it requires a really large sharpener in order to get the product out again. But that didn't put me off one bit from buying it. Overall, I am happy with the product as it retails for about 6 euros and works very well for my everyday makeup looks.
