Brows On Fleek With Hi Impact Brows


Hi Impact Brows Review
Hi Impact Brows Review

| There's a new brow product on the block & my brows have been 'on fleek' since I started using it! |


The days of overplucked brows are long gone and in this day and age, everyone is striving the have brows just like Cara Delevingne. Finding the right product to create full looking brows is crucial. A couple of weeks ago I was sent the Hi Impact Brows palette* to try out and I was really happy with the product and how my brows looked using it.

The versatility of the palette:
As you can see the palette contains four shades: From L to R 'Ash', 'Spice', 'Mocha' & 'Charcoal'. What I like most about the palette is that it's designed for everybody, whether you're a beginner just starting out with makeup, or you're a makeup artist or you find it hard to get the perfect shade to match your brows. It's very hard to find just one product that caters for all but I think Hi Impact Brows have hit the nail on the head with this product!

If you're a beginner and you're not sure what shade you should be using to fill in your brows then this palette is great because you can experiment with the different shades to find what suits you best, and there's also a brush in the palette. Although I'm not a huge fan of the brush {I haven't used anything but the Zoeva 317 since I got it!!}, I do think it's a good brush for beginners and it's handy if you're traveling and you might've forgotten your eyebrow brush. 

It's ideal for makeup artists also as you have a wide variety of shades to work with to suit all of your clients. Or if you're not a beginner or a makeup artist like myself then it's great for mixing shades if you find it hard to get an eyebrow product shade to suit you or you can use two of the shades for different parts of your eyebrows like I have done in the photo below. 


Formula & Pigmentation & Lasting Power:
A good powder is hard to come by so I often stay clear of powders as I find they're not that pigmented, and I usually opt for gels instead. However, all of these powders are extremely pigmented which you can see in the swatch photo above. Everyone fills in their eyebrows differently but I love the look of gels as I think they give a dramatic result which resembles the likes of Cara's brows {well, maybe not as dramatic as hers *wink wink}. Because these powders are so pigmented it means that I can create a dramatic brow but you can also use them light handed for a more natural look which I love for early morning starts. 

The powders are really easy to work with and in my opinion, they're a lot easier to use than gels or waxes. They wear really well throughout the day also; Once they're on they stay on and they don't fade throughout the day. In fact, when I take my makeup off, the powder is a little harder to remove than my usual budget brow products but I think that's a good sign as it just goes to show how pigmented they are!

How I use the palette:
I have dark brown hair and personally I find that the shade 'Mocha' {the second darkest shade} works best for me on the middle and tail of my brows. I then blend a tiny amount of 'Spice' {the second shade in the palette} at the front of my brows where I like a more natural look. 

The palette also claims that it can be used as eyeshadow and eyeliner so I decided to test that out too. I'm fond of using black eyeshadow as eyeliner and smudging it out for a natural daytime smokey look and the black shade in this palette works well for doing that. The lightest brown shade works well in the crease for a neutral everyday makeup look.

Would I recommend it?
Absolutely! I'll be continuing to use it and you'll be seeing it featured on my blog and Instagram a lot in the future!
