Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Golden Bronze and Mercury Silver

I recently developed a fondness for metallic colours in my make-up. Anything with shimmer, and anything that hints to the metallic colour spectrum. And after a recent visit to Boots found these Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints which look like liquid metal in a tube, and excited me at first swatch.
The Scandaleyes Shadow Paints come in five different colours, but I was more drawn to: Golden Bronze and Mercury Silver. I felt these were the most naturally metallic of the five, and I knew I could do so much with them, given they were just what I was looking for.

Swatched on my arm they look amazing and highly pigmented. They have that liquid metal look you'd want and expect: vivid colour, that 'wet look' and the metallic shine. When applied to my lids, it looks just as in the tube and in the swatches. The 'wet look' does fade a little as it dries, as if it's transforming from a cream into a powder form, but it doesn't lose vividness. The product's soft doe-foot end applicator helps makes application super easy to apply and control. Not only do you get a decent consistency, but it helps give a high density colour application with every stroke.
It wears very well too, lasting pretty much all day (Rimmel boasts 8 hour stay, but I can vouch for longer), without a crease in sight, as you can see below. You can also see I apply it quite thickly for a vivid opaque colour, but if this isn't your thing you can easily blend it out for a more subtle colour. Though I warn you, you'll have to work quite quickly because of it's staying power: Once it's dry, it's dry, and it doesn't go anywhere!

Overall, I am loving these two shadow paints, and I'm most probably going to purchase the other three at some point or another since the colour is just perfect every time, they have amazing stay power and apply so easy. I've created so many looks with them already on their own and with other shadows to create many looks: The silver mostly as a base for smoky looks and the bronze for subtle metallic eye looks.
I'd recommend this if you're looking for a decent liquid metal or any sort of metallic shadow. I wouldn't be thinking of buying the other three colours if I didn't like it so much. Which colour would you buy of the five?
