Many Colours of the Union Jack

I really like these Union Jack palettes. Apparently, many of you do too as I have had a good handful of requests for swatches.

Rimmel London Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows:


English Oak:




Bark like browns, a gold leaf shade and an autumnal rosy copper.

Green Park:




Mucky browns, fresh grassy green, scorched grass yellow.

Black Cab:




Charred, smoky foggy shades with a brilliant glittering white.

I am generally pleased with these palettes. They have great pigmentation and are buttery soft. They do tend to break when pressure is applied but the clever separators within the palette keep things from getting too messy. Both Boots and Superdrug are doing some excellent 3 for 2 offers at the moment and these are certainly worth a look in.

  3. Great swatches!! I've just recently bought English Oak for a friend but cracked the lid whilst packaging so I got to keep it for myself! I love Boots' 3 for 2 offers, they seem to be on quite regularly!

  15. the designs on these look awesome, but i wonder if it's a pain to get each separate color out of the palettes?
