Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder* Review

Now, I am picky when it comes to brow products, either the application isn't great, the colour is off, or the product is too damn expensive. So I was dubious when the Brow Shake Filling Powders* landed on my doorstep. What would the colour be like? What would the application be like? and what would the finished look, look like?



This product is a powder (hence the name), and this is something which I am quite drawn to. I tend to find pencils just don't work for me, and although I like gels and creams, nothing quite beats a powder.

Something which can be a massive bug bear for me is when high-street products create brow products that are extremely warm in tone, my brows are quite cool. So finding a good staple high street brand to fulfil my needs can be some what tricky. Having said this I am pretty pleased with the tones and colours of this collection. I am currently using the medium brown shade which in fairness is quite a good match for my cooly toned brows.

With the other colours in the collection the dark brown was too warm for me, the black shade obviously wouldn't work. And if I was tanned I could probably also quite easily use the blonde shade.


The application of the product couldn't be easier; you simply shake the product, open it and lightly draw/brush on the product with the applicator. I think this would be a god-send product for those of you with sparse or patchy brows, as this would easily fill those problems in.


It would also be a great product for those that like to have highly defined brows. This product is definitely build able, which means it is perfect for day use and for a slightly more dramatic evening look. I can safely say this product lasts and lasts, I wore this on a night out, and in typical bad blogger fashion left my makeup on when I went to bed. In the morning my brows were still in place and looking flawless.



The only thing which could be different with this product was if the applicator was slightly flatter - more of a flat rectangle. Only because this would enable two ways to apply, a thinner edge would help to achieve beautifully tapered tail- ends and a chance a to draw a fine and blended line at the beginning of the brow. You could then turn the applicator in your hand and then use the flat rectangle part to fill in larger areas. However as long as you apply this product gently and lightly you can achieve this, it just takes a little longer.

Overall I am loving the product, if I want to create a thinner tail-end I simply use a fine brush and this does the job!
