Hi there, my darlings! If there's one feature I usually spend the most time getting right, it's my eyes. I mean, I can swipe on lipstick and pat on foundation, even quickly contour my face, in just a few minutes. But I like to take my time with that perfect smokey eye or that just right wing tip. So, I'm always on the look out for new, affordable eye makeup options that'll make my job easier, especially when I'm on the go. Today, I've put together 4 different eye products from Rimmel that I'm loving lately and have become beloved staples in my makeup bag!
1. BROW THIS WAY Brow Sculpting Kits ($4.49)
For a bolder, sculpted look, this four-piece kit includes styling wax, setting powder, a specially designed double-ended brush, and a spooly brush, giving you everything you need to create a gorgeously groomed brow. First,shape your brows by applying the styling wax with angled brush, using smooth strokes to define and contour. Next, use the other end of the brush to blend the setting powder, filling in sparse areas with as much color as you dare. Finish by using the spooly brush to lock in the look. With three color palettes, you can match your natural hue or go a shade darker for even more impact.
AVAILABLE SHADES: Blonde (001,) Medium Brown (002,) Dark Brown (003)
Now, I usually leave my brows natural or use a bit of a brow pencil to fill in gaps, but I love these kits when I wanted a more defined look, especially for special occasions. These little kits are small, light and portable so they're perfect to stash in your makeup bag when you're on the go!
Shown below are swatches of the kits in Dark Brown (top) an Medium Brown.
Tame, enhance, and beautify brows with this styling gel. A mascara-style precision applicatormakes it easy to brush brows into just the right shape, defining and enhancing each hair. The lightweight, long-lasting gel sets fast, giving you all-day perfection. A palette of three tinted versions and one clear variety lets you choose from a natural look or high-impact brows, and each gel sets with a non-sticky shine. Packaged in a sleek tube embellished with a Union Jack in white silver, this gel makes defined brows simple.

Fair Warning, right off the bat : these are VERY soft and tend to break off quite easily. In fact, a couple of them broke completely off in transit to me. But, because they are so soft, it's quite easy to fix them. And I find if I stick them in the fridge for a bit, they're easier to work with. Despite that, I LOVE the shade combos! These are truly waterproof and won't budge for hours. Perfect for those special nights out on the town.
Shown below are swatches of the Back to Black duo (top) and the Kissed by a Rose Gold duo.
