Black Xs & Rimmel Eyeshadow Review, by Special Guest Blogger!

Rimmel  London Traffic Stopping Shadow

Today’s product I tried is ‘Traffic Stopping Shadow’ eye shadow by Rimmel London.


Traffic Stopping Shadow is a collection of sets of three compact eye shadows. There are four available shades of Traffic Stopping Shadow; the shade I tried was called ‘Over The Limit’.

Over The Limit’ has a Highlighter for my brow area, a golden shade for my eye lid and a dark brown shade for around my eye eyelashes and outer eye.

My first Impression of ‘Over The Limit’ was I liked the colours and thought they complemented each other very well. When I wore it I liked the fact you could use it casually in the daytime and make it dressier for the nighttime by pairing it with mascara and eyeliner. It works putting it on wet or dry but I prefer putting it on wet because I think it gives a more defined colour and makes it visible for longer.

‘Black XS L’Excès’ Fragrance by Paco Rabanne

Today’s Product I tried was Black XS L’EXCÈS for her, a perfume by Paco Rabanne.


My first Impression of the bottle was it looked edgy and had a punk-rockish feel to it. Black XS L’EXCÈS for her has a sweet smell and has been described as ‘An addictively warm floriental, Black XS L’Excès is a fiery fragrance inspired directly from the world of rock music.’ When I searched it online I found that Iggy Pop, the vocalist of the band ‘The Stooges’, influenced the perfume. I liked the perfume and I would buy it for a friend.
