I can’t deny it, I love a good brow product but I never branch out enough. Rimmel’s latest launch of Brow Shake Filling Powders got me realising that I really needed to try some new brow products. It’s quite easy to get stuck in a rut of using the same products, so let me tell you all about my first impressions.
When these arrived I was so intrigued. Never before have I seen a brow powder in a tube as they’re usually pressed. Essentially, it’s a loose powder that you shake before using so that the product gets onto the brush that comes inside the tube. The range comes in four shades, from light brown for fairer hair to black. All four shades are buildable to, so depending on the intensity or colour you want, you can get what you desire with these.
The applicator is a sponge like brush with a narrow tip that allows you to shape as well as fill your brows. It isn’t the most defined tip so these brow powders are best for filling instead of defining a super sharp brow. So, if I want a more defined brow I usually go in with a thin pencil, usually Benefit’s Precisely My Brow and then fill in with this. But if more natural soft brows are your thing, then this is the only product you’ll need. They are great to get fuller brows fast as the product is pigmented enough to apply once and you’re good to go.
When applying its best to tap out the brush so you don’t get any fall out. Although the product can have fall out, the product has incredible staying power and is smudge-proof. I really do love this product for those days I want fuller brows without having to spend ages, and the colour match is spot on.
Another bonus of these is that you get so much for your money. They perform just as well as mid-end brow powders I’ve tried in the past, and they’re just a small fraction of the price. What brow products are your favourite for quick effortless brows?
