Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil 001 Dark Brown

Eyebrows are often left ignored in my opinion. It holds true at least for me. I use kits in general but I find it a little time- consuming for daily use. When I saw Rimmel London recently online, I decided to pick some. This eyebrow pencil is part of that haul.

Product Description:

Professional Eyebrow Pencil is used to enhance and refine the shape of the eyebrows. It can be used to fill gaps or lengthen the arc of the eyebrow to create the desired look. Made in England.

My Take on Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil 001 Dark Brown:

This is a basic wooden eyebrow pencil. It has a black body with dark brown cap. The details are embossed on the body of the pencil in silver writings. Another interesting aspect about the pencil is the cap. It has a grooming brush attached to the cap. The brush is very useful to fix stray hair in place but it find it little scratchy. I find nothing fancy about the packing but quite handy. It requires frequent sharpening which leads to product wastage.

The texture is quite is smooth with very good pigmentation. I like the fact that it doesn’t have reddish shade to it. Most of the eyebrow products have reddish toned to it which gives a fake effect. It is very easy to use and fills in the gaps on my eyebrows with ease. It didn’t smudge and stayed almost the whole day unless rubbed with hands. It fades after 5 hours but I was able to see the color unless removed.

Pros of Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil 001 Dark Brown:

• Good pigmentation.
• Good Staying power.
• Smooth formula.
• Pretty cheap.
• Easy to carry.
• Easy to use.
• Easy to remove.

Cons of Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil 001 Dark Brown:

• Not waterproof.
• Requires sharpening.
• Availability.

I find this very easy to use on the go. The pigmentation, texture, fragrance free nature, price are all added advantage. I am going to buy back up for this pencil. I have not come across many eyebrow products in India. With the recent availability of Rimmel product and at this cost, this is a must have in every kitty.

IMBB Rating:

4.7/5

This suits my hair type and looks very natural on me… if you have pitch black hair then black brown should give you a natural look!!
