Today I have a quick swatch of a Rimmel shade I picked up recently! I don’t own a lot of Rimmel London polishes but when I saw this little duochrome gem hiding away in a discount bin, I had to grab it. I’ve been hugely into duochromes and multichromes lately. Though I felt like the mainstream brand duochromes often lacked vibrancy and a strong colour shift. Definitely not the case with this one! Let’s take a look!
Rimmel Bronze Princess shifts from a gorgeous deep reddish purple(?) to a vibrant rich green. It’s so stunning! The duochrome particles sit in a blueish green base that makes this polish nice and opaque. No need for a black base. The main colour of this duochrome is so hard to describe, it looks drastically different in each light setting too. Sometimes it looks red, other times it looks purple or brown. A real chameleon this one! 😀
What I love most is the colour shift to green though… It’s so vibrant and stunning. Love it! The formula was great too. The only (minor) downside is the bottle size, it’s only 8ml so it’s fairly small but you get a nice full-size brush so no complaints.
These Rimmel Metal Rush shades were launched in October 2012 and are sadly no longer available! However I found this Rimmel Bronze Princess polish at a local discount store called Action for just €2.29. Maybe you can still find some if you’re lucky.
