Those who love doing eye makeup must be knowing how important an eye brow pencil is. Eye brows are one thing that can change the whole look of your face. Well groomed eyebrows make a lot of difference to your personality. Also, different shapes can make you look sharp, dull or may even kill the complete look sometimes. Since the time I have started thinking about my brows, I have started to examine other people’s brows too. Deepika padukone in “yeh jawani hai diwani” has worn at least 5 different shapes of eye brows at different instances 😛 and she looked different with each one.
So, enough of gyaan; let me come to the review. This is Rimmel London professional eye brow pencil in the shade black brown.

My take on Rimmel London professional eye brow pencil oo4 black brown:
My natural brows are thin, not dense but nicely shaped. I use an eye brow pencil to define them a little more. This pencil comes with a sturdy cap which fits in nicely and has a grooming brush attached to it. The cap is colored the same as the shade of the pencil.
The tip of this pencil is soft but firm at the same time. It is not at all creamy which is good. An eyebrow pencil has to be firm so that you do not go overboard with it at once. I use short light strokes to fill in the brows. The texture is just exactly like I wanted in my eyebrow pencil. It gets sharpened easily too and there is no wastage with this pencil since it is not creamy.
The shade is black brown. This will suit girls with black and dense eye brows. For me, I have to use it lightly to get the desired effect since I have black but thin eye brows. If I use it more than once at one spot, my brows look darker than they naturally are and they appear artificial then. With light stroking, this shade is perfect, I think I would try the dark brown shade from this range as well to see how that one goes on me.
The brush is very useful to groom the eyebrows and set them at place. The eyebrows stay like that for the whole day. It does not budge from its place at all. I do not use a fixer even. So this is something that can be used with ease, takes less time and stays put for long.
• Study packaging.
• It has a grooming brush along.
• The tip is firm, and is perfect to fill the brows.
• It does not budge from its place the whole day.
• The shade would suit most of the Indian girls.
• No wastage while sharpening.
• Decent pricing.
• Easily available.
Will I recommend/ repurchase this?
Yes I highly recommend this pencil. For me, I would try the dark brown shade as well to know which one suits me better.
