Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown 001: Did it change my eye brow game?

Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil Dark brown 001 review, swatches.

I have a problem. My eye brows are extremely problematic. No, thankfully they have a good shape. But, they are sparse with bald patches. So, if I want to pluck out a stray, I have to be careful because I might end with without an eyebrow! Yes, I got into this game a bit too late, but on a better note, my learning curve is a steady one. I have been using a mineral eyeshadow for my eye brows and it looks so natural! But, I wanted to try out more and also needed something which I can use on the go. So, I got this Rimmel London

2 I wanted to try a dark brown.

My Experience of Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown 001:

The pencil is neither too soft, nor too hard. The texture is good for eye brows. Even on hot summer days, it does not melt off or dislodge. There's an eye brow brush on one end which I find pretty useful, especially, if I need to brush my sparse eyebrow strands in place.

 Coming to the color. It is deep brown, but unfortunately, not cool toned. I feel, for dark-skinned, dark haired women like me, warm deep brown for brows may not work. My natural strands are just black. So, unless it is blackish, cool toned brown or charcoal, things area no go.


That said, I don't mean that this pencil does not work. It is one of my most used products, and as I am writing it, by the time, it has become a stub. ( Shall update it on Facebook page). But, I have already found a way better alternative which I shall talk about very soon.

So,

What I like about Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown


  • Comes with  comb-brush on one end which is useful.
  • Deep browns as well as light browns are available.
  • Slightly waxy, which is ideal for brows.
  • Neither too soft or hard.
  • Does not dislodge even in most humid condition.
  • Affordable at around 200 Rupees I think.

What not to like about Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown :

  • The colors are warm toned which does not work for me.
