Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil Review

It has only been a few months since I decided that I should probably start doing something with my eyebrows. Despite hearing so many people talk about how 'the eyebrows frame the face' and how important it was to define your eyebrows, I had never really paid mine much attention. However, when I was having a look around Boots after uni one day, I saw this eyebrow pencil for only £2.99 and decided I might as well give it a go. I picked up  'Hazel', since it was the lightest shade available and I have (quite dark) blonde hair. There are also 2 other shades available, 'Dark brown' and 'Black'.

The packaging of this is quite simple, a conventional wooden pencil with a core of product, however the lid has a handy little brush to comb through the brows with. I found that the brush works well to help distribute the product through the brows and tone down the colour if you have been a bit heavy handed. 

The formula of the pencil is quite firm, making it long lasting and easy to apply without clumps breaking off into your brow hairs. However, since the colour of this is very warm toned, when brushed into the brow it becomes a rather striking shade of ginger. Unfortunately this rendered this particular pencil unwearable in my books, ginger brows really do not suit me. I really don't understand why so many brow products are this warm toned, especially those meant for lighter hair. 

Overall I think this pencil is a decent product, just not for anyone with a lighter hair colour. This might be an amazing product for brunettes or red heads, however. The formula is firm, easy to apply and lasts all day.

Have you tried this product? Did it work for you?
Also, if you have any review requests then leave them in the comments and I'll have a look!
