Rediscovering the love of... Hi Brow!

Hi Brow

I got this for Christmas 2014 and I've used it a fair amount of times. Although, I ended up falling in love with another eyebrow product which I use everyday that is the I-groom pencil from New Cid Cosmetics. I have used Hi Brow here and there when I felt like using it and when I've created some makeup looks. I wrote a post on this last year which is why I'm rediscovering my love of Hi Brow today, I've missed it a little.

Hi Brow Review

I have the Hi Brow compact in the shade light brown. It comes with a dual ended brush with an angled side and a flat side. In the compact you also get three eyebrow stencils; angled, curved and straight. To be honest, I'm not a massive fan of the stencils, I just can't seem to align them properly with my brows. It's just hard work to be honest. Other people I know have gotten on with them and they have actually used the stencil to tweeze the shape of their brows, which I think is a fab idea!

I usually use the flat side of the dual ended brush and apply the powder very lightly to my brows. If I apply too harsh, it's quite hard to get rid of the majority of the colour. I only apply very lightly as I have light hair, if you have darker hair then you could probably get away with it. I feel like I can work better with powder than pencil. I can also create that 'ombre' look much easier by using a clean spooley and the powder itself. Whereas, using my brow pencil I find that it's a lot more work.

I absolutely love the highlight in this compact. It's not too light or too shimmery, it's just perfect to highlight the brows. It's a nice light pink shimmer. You could probably use this elsewhere on your face too.

What do you use to fill in your brows? What do you think of Hi Brow?
