Rimmel Brow Products

For years I've been loyal to my Shu Uemura Hard Brow pencil. I've tried other products but they just don't measure up and I always come back to my Shu pencil. One of the reasons I struggle so much to find a good brow product is because they are often warm toned. I need cool, ash tones for my brows, not warm red shades. 

I tried to get on board with the brow gel/pomade trend but it just doesn't look right on me. I want my brows to be defined and the light patches filled, so that they looked groomed but natural. As much as I love bold brows, they just don't suit me.

I've recently had the opportunity to try some new brow products from Rimmel and was pleasantly surprised at how good they are. I've finally found something to replace my beloved Shu pencil! The two Rimmel products I'm loving are the Brow This Way Fibre pencil (pictured above) and the Brow Shake Filling Powder (below). 

The Fibre pencil is designed for sparse brows to plump them up. It contains small fibres and subtle colour. The fuzzy bit that you can see at the end of the pencil in the photo above is the fibres. They're small and work really well to fill in and plump out my brows. This is my daily, go-to brow pencil. It's quick and easy to use, isn't warm toned and lasts all day.

When I have a little more time in the morning I use the Brow Shake Filling Powder. A light hand is required with this one as it packs a great punch of pigment and is easily overdone.The first time I used it I made a huge mess all over my brow area and had to wash it off then start again. The brow powder is water proof, transfer proof and sweat proof, so will be great for summer. I wore it to the gym and it didn't budge!

I use the medium brown shade in both products. Even though I have dark brows I find the dark brown shade is way too dark for me, however if you wear bold brows it'd be perfect. 

When my eye allergies are gone I'll update this post with photos of both products in action.
