Rimmel Idol Eyes Collection by Kate ♥

Hey beaut's!

Recently Rimmel London announced that they would be launching a new Kate Moss Collection called Idol Eyes. The Idol Eyes collection, which hit the shelves on the 14th of May,  has been inspired by the supermodels favourite gem stones and jewels and the shade range really reflects that. 


The line consists of a Mascara which is very similar to the Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara with it's broken heart shaped wand to achieve that voluminous lift and curl and is available in four colours, Eye Rock Jet Black, Eye Rock Sapphire (blue), Eye Rock Emerald (green) and Eye Rock Amethyst (purple). Next is the Kate Shadow Sticks which feature four long lasting eye colours in pencil form that illuminate the eyes in a single stroke. The super creamy formula blends and applies without scratching or dragging on the eyes for smooth application. The Shadow Sticks are priced at £4.49 each and come in Deep Amethyst (purple), Pure Turquoise (teal), Rose Gold (gold) and Electric Sapphire (blue). And to complete the collection there is an emerald green waterproof Kate Gel Eye Liner, unfortunately that only comes in the one shade but I think it's absolutely beautiful. 

As you may know a few weeks ago I went on the Boots online waiting list so that I could be informed when the Rimmel Kate Mascara was released (more information here), when Boots emailed me they kindly sent me a voucher code that added 4 free Kate goodies into my basket at the checkout but only when I ordered the mascara, so I got 2 freebies from the Idol Eyes Collection and 2 freebies from Kates new Urban Bohemian Collection (post on that coming soon).

I thought I would write up mini reviews for each product that I have tried from the Idol Eyes Collection so far...

Kate Mascara in Eye Rock Jet Black £7.49
Truth be told Kate's Mascara is exactly the same as the Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara , it shares the same wand and from what I can tell it shares the same formula too, however Kate has launched the mascara in 4 all new jewel toned shades, so if you already own the Rockin' Curves Mascara you may want to give this a swerve, unless you are like me and get sucked into the all new 'Kate' packaging which I think is lovely, it looks quite expensive and really reminds me of the Benefit They're Real packaging. If your braver than me and like rockin coloured mascara's I do think you will love this one.

Kate Eye Shadow Stick in Rose Gold £4.49
This is my very first eye shadow stick from Rimmel and after trying this I cant believe I've never bought any before because I love it! The Kate Eyeshadow Sticks share the same formula as the Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Sticks and again come in 4 all new jewel tones shades. After giving the Rose Gold offering a whirl I can tell these little beauties are perfect for summertime wear, firstly they set nicely giving you 24 hour/waterproof hold so it's perfect for those days when it's super hot and sticky or even if you on holiday and you want a wash of colour over your lids when swimming etc, these wont budge. As if the shade was beautiful enough the formula is absolutely beautiful too, its so super soft and creamy and just glides onto your eyelids without dragging and blends out a treat. This shade also works particularly well as a base for a gorgeous golden/bronze eye look, which against a tan will look stunning. 

Kate Gel Eye Liner in Emerald Green £6.99
The Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Kates Special Edition Idol Eyes Collection just comes in the one shade Emerald Green, I would of loved to see the gel liner in a collection of colours like the mascara and the eye shadow sticks but hey ho, Emerald Green is a beautiful shade so I wont grumble too much he he. In the box you get a cute plastic pot with your gel liner inside and a little gel liner brush which is actually quite good considering it's a little extra. The gel liner itself is creamy and easy to use and looks great against my brown eyes, it's quite a deep Emerald Green shade and makes a nice change to the typical Black liner that I always use. Just like the eye shadow sticks the gel liner provides 24 hour/waterproof hold so it's perfect to wear in the heat and is super long lasting.

Overall I absolutely love this collection, the products and the shades are perfect for this time of year and I'm now lusting after all the other shades too he he.

Do let me know if you would like full in depth reviews of all the products I've featured in this post and I'd love to know if you've picked any of Kate Moss' Idol Eyes Collection up too.

  2. I've been loving eye shadow sticks recently and was just wondering if these would be worth it when I came across your post! Would you use an eye shadow primer first or do they work well on their own? x

  5. Great post! I have become quite 'afraid' of using make up the past years and have just stuck to my Clinique products. Am ready to delve back into the world of cosmetics again and I think Rimmel will be my starting point! The eye stick looks especially good. Thanks for brining this to my attention.
