Hi Impact Brows - Eye and Brow Perfector

 

To me, brows are everything when it comes to makeup. They frame the face and can make or break your look. I don't know about you but brows are what I notice first about someone's face haha.
Brows never used to bother me years ago, i remember being at school and plucking them to an inch of their life - they looked bloody terrible and i never even knew about filling them in either.
My younger sisters where worse, i remember her shaving them once - OMG i know right?!

Gone are the days where thin, sparse, over plucked brows are 'in', it's all about the power brows now!

As i was a victim of the over-plucking-your-brows-era, growing them back was hard, even now i have patches that i just cant seem to get back. But thanks to wonderful brow products such as this Hi Impact Brows Palette that isn't a problem, as i can now cover them while making them look full and natural - no one likes that drawn on brow look either - eeek!

For my brows i have always turned to my beloved Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade and nothing could compare to it - it offers precision and you can create a natural look by mimicking natural hairs with it.
I didn't think id come across anything id like as much, until i tried the palette by Hi Impact Brows.

What i like about this palette is the colour selection, there is a shade that will suit everyone, ranging from light to dark and cool tones to warm tones in one neat, little compact. Inside the compact there is even a decent sized mirror and a good quality brush (i think most of the time the brushes that come included with palettes are awful).

Shades L-R Ash, Spice, Mocha, Charcoal
The pigments of these powders are pretty impressive, I have tried a fair few brow powder products and I've never really got on with them. I think its because i found i cant get a neat precise shape with them and i have to keep adding layers on layers to get any kind of colour.
But because the Hi Impact Brows one has such a good colour pay off i find that i can get that sharp shape i like while still looking natural.

The shades in this kit are as follows ...

Ash - Is a cool toned blonde shade
Spice - Is a warm toned auburn shade
Mocha - Is a cool toned dark brown shade
Charcoal - Is a dark ebony shade

Swatched with finger L-R Ash, Spice, Mocha, Charcoal


One Swipe using the angled brush included - swatched - L-R Ash, Spice, Mocha, Charcoal

As you can see from the one swipe swatches above, the pigment is so smooth and great quality!

What I like about these colour combinations is that you can create your perfect colour by mixing them if there isn't a specific shade for you. The one that works best for me is Mocha.

Another thing i like to do with this palette is create that 'ombre' brow effect by using a lighter shade at the front of my brow then half way through blending a darker shade in and making that colour more intense at the tail of the brow - I tried to show what i mean by drawing a brow on my arm haha......

i tried ....lol
For example on the front of this brow i used the lighter shade Mocha and then started to add a little of the darker charcoal shade to make it transition well, then using only charcoal towards the end of the brow. I think this can give a lovely look to the brows, i like to do this when i have a little more time on my hands to get ready which is very rare.

This palette also doubles up as an eye shadow palette, it's just perfect for travelling!
