Oh I do love a good brow product, I have tried everything
from pencils to pomades, but I always seem to get on best with a powder,
followed by some sort of taming gel/ setting product such as the Benefit “Gimme
Brow” or the L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper. The Hi Impact Brow Kit* doesn’t just
claim to be the only brow kit that you’ll need, but it also doubles up as a eye
shadow palette (winning).
With 4 different shades this palettes allows you to custom
create your perfect brow colour. I find it incredibly difficult to find the
perfect shade to match my brow colour, so this is pretty perfect. A combination
of the 1st and 3rd shade gives me a mid tone ashy brown
that looks best with my current hair colour and natural brows.
I have oily skin so I feel like I can really put this to the
test, applying it at 6.45am my brows didn’t budge until I took it off that
evening, so I can say with confidence this lasts! The powders are very
pigmented, one flaw is that it does kick back quite a bit of product when I put
my brush in, but I just make sure to tap off the excess and that works fine. These powders are crazy pigmented, so tapping off all the excess is essential anyway.
Using the shades as eye shadow I have loved using 2 and 4 in
combination with the Urban Decay Primer Potion (oily eyelid problems), I found
both the black and the warm toned brown to last well, blend nicely and make
this palette well worth packing when I go away as I can actually get use out of
all 4 shades included. Admittedly I don’t use the brush it comes with, but
that’s pretty standard with most palettes for me as I just prefer the brushes I
already have. I found the brush it comes with to be a little too chunky to
mimic brow hairs when applying the product, this product retails for £18.99, which is a little disappointing as the powders definetly represent that price tag, but the packaging and brush doesn’t for me.
Overall I am pleased to have this palette in my collection,
I took this away with me for the weekend and only needed to take one other
eyeshadow to complete a smokey bronzed eye look (Sephora “Hollywood’s Calling”
Do you have a go to palette for brows and eye shadow?
