I’ve really started to look after my brows lately, proud of me? tinting them waxing them the lot! It’s safe to say my brows have never looked better. For day to day goings on I like my brows to look natural, with a soft arch, the whole bold “Instagram brow” really isn’t my thing but i do enjoy a slightly bolder brow if i have somewhere to go. So i was really excited to give the Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder * a go when they landed on my door step.
There are 4 shades available; light brown, medium brown, dark brown and soft black and what makes this product unique is the soft sponge applicator. It’s not like any brow product i’ve tried before. The sponge is quite thick which means application is quick but this does compromise precision and you certainly can’t create hair like strokes with it, so it’s definitely a product for those who like a much bolder brow. It’s said to be a 3 in 1 product to fill, define and line, so not only is this a brow product but you can also use this product as an eyeliner.
So my thoughts, i find it quite hard to get used to using a loose powder rather than a pressed one, I’m so used to being able to create hair like stokes and not being able to do that with the sponge applicator just seems weird to me. The powder is super pigmented so a little goes a long way, i’ve found there seems to be a lot of fall out and if you don’t have the steadiest of hands and catch the applicator on something while trying to apply the powder product flicks everywhere! A simple solution is to just tap off the excess powder before you begin to apply and that seems to do the trick.
For me i wish there where more shades available, hopefully something which Rimmel are working on. I do think the Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder is a product for those who love a much bolder brow, i quite enjoy using it along side my brow pencil so i can create a more natural finish. Application is super quick, the staying power is amazing, it doesn’t smudge or transfer so if you are a fan of bold defined brows i think you will love Rimmels latest offering!
Have you tried Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder? What are your thoughts?
