Easy to apply
Can be smudged
The beauty of this product. It’s really fast to apply your brows using this. You basically just draw on your brows. It’s thick and so easily transferred that it takes no time at all. But you can touch your brows after as it is as easily to remove the product.
Medium brown doesnt suit me at all. It feels more khaki instead of brown. So the shade is all wrong. If not this will be the perfect product for the morning when you just have no time at all to apply your makeup.
This is a nice brow pencil. It’s a small traveling size one. The pencil an over shape, kind of waxy but managed to swatched on the back of the hand. On the brows, it looks good. It’s natural and fit me. This is in universal taupe, the colour is more brown than grey, but on the brow, it just blend in very well. It’s also long lasting. I have been into brow powder, but it’s troublesome to bring it for traveling or in my my bag. So sometime a pencil will work better. So this is the pencil I would recommend. This is probably my fav brow pencil for now.
I need a brow powder to replace my Catrice eyebrow set. I used to wear only brown shade a sit looks better on me. This year, I only use grey ones as it looks better on me now. Brown is way too light. I almost finished off the lighter shade of the Catrice one. So I really need a powder that is of the same shade. I bought this on a whim and I’m so thankful it works. The taupe is rather light too even though on the pan itself, it looks rather deep.
So this works well to my advantage as I’m looking for a taupe shade but not overly deep. It shades the brows quite well. I just have to be steady on brushing through the hair. This last longer than the Catrice, so it’s much better. But of course this cost me $28 while the drugstore product is less than $7. I prefer this also cause its not powdery. Catrice has lots of fallout. So that’s the big difference.
Oh well, I think I found my brow powder for now until my brows decided it won’t suit taupe. So this better last till forever.
I’ve been using powder brow product for so long, that’s it’s actually a bit hard to adjust to pencil. It just takes longer to use a pencil. I Guess pencil brow product is just thinner and more precise. So you have to really pay more attention to the details.
GY941 is a rather taupe shade. It’s suppose to be grey I guess but it’s quite natural on me. I like that this is hard but it’s easy to glide across the brow. The product kind of blend nicely with the brow brush too. So that’s nice. But I do feel that it can dissappear easily when brushed. So it had to be brushed gently.
Overall for NT200 it’s quite alright.
I always wanted to try Kate product. I decide to get their brow product cause it seems safe. I choose the shade BR5 which is the natural grey. I guess BR is suppose to be brown, but it’s greyish. So it sort of suit me. As I can’t really wear brown now.
I like this cause it feels very hard. I tried to swatch it on my arms, but I can’t get the colour to transfer. On my brows however, the colour just glide on easily. No need to drag, no need to pull. It just glide on but it’s not gel like. It’s good. So it gives off the colour but it doesn’t smudge off.
The pencil is also small, so it’s rather precise. It would have been my go to brow product if it comes with a brow brush. This doesn’t. I have to use my own brow brush to blend the harsh line. To blur it off to make it natural. So that’s just the one drawback. Other than that, it’s a good product.
So I bought this cause I wanted more brow brushes. The brushes handle are slightly angled. I find that it’s not as easy as I thought it will be. I only use the brow brush. The others 1) the definer – I don’t need it, 2) spoolie – is way too small.
I like the tweezers. But I only use the angled one. I find that the detailing brush is quite hard to use. It’s pointy and sharp. I thought it will be easy to grab the loose stubborn hair. But I can’t even. It’s hard to get a grab on the hair. So I use it for other purposes, like pulling off loose strand on my shirt.
So the best thing out of this kit is the angled tweezer.
I just wanted to have something from Illamasqua. Then I decide to go for the brow product. The powder seems like a safe bet and I choose the shade Gaze which turn out to be a deep brown. It’s almost greyish black actually. I like that it’s pigmented. But I am not used to the darker shade of brow. So I am quite reluctant to use this. This becomes my weekend brow product. This will give me a very full, quite dark looking brows. The good thing about this is that it’s long lasting. So I can use this and have no problem for the whole day.
I don’t think there is many shades for this. But if there is, I would like to get a lighter shade. I like that the packaging is quite slim and it comes in its Illamasqua shape. So it’s quite nice actually. There is a little mirror too. So it’s quite nice. So yea, not a bad product at all. As long lasting brows is a must in my book.
This is a very waxy brow pencil. It’s smooth and easy to glide across the brows. The problem I have with this is that it’s not good on sparse brows. I have a lil area that in need of coverage and this can’t give me that. I kept going over it, but it just seems to skip over. It doesn’t stick. So this is only good for people who just need to keep their brows in place with a bit of colour.
Anyway the shade is in 002 hazel which is a brownish taupe. More brown I would say. The colour is fine on me. The packaging has a nice tiny comb. This is good to have. But the quality of the brush is too thin. So it doesn’t brush nicely. It should be good for precise brushing. But to blend the colour to your brows as what I always use kind of thing for, it’s not that good.
I bought 3 shades of Etude House brow pencils. This is the one that comes in a twistable triangle pencil and a spoolie on the other end. The product is slightly waxy, so it will tame the brow at the same time. I like that it is a bit triangle, so it’s easy to shape the brow. You can make it thinner or fatter depending on which area you focus on. It is also long lasting, so no problem with having to touch up. If needed, touch up will be easy.
Shade 3 is a brown which suppose to have a hint of grey, which I guess you can say that. But it’s just not so obvious. On me, it looks alright. But sometime brown can be a bit too indifference.
Shade 4 is a dark grey. It’s almost as close to black, but it’s not so dark. On me it does appear quite dark, but I just feels quite conscious using this.
Shade 5, is a light grey, which is the one most suited to me. Or so I think. It still looks dark, but it’s alright. It’s quite hard to swatch on the back of my hand, but on the brows, it’s good.
Overall, these brows products are good and easy to use. They transfer well and create natural looking brows. Even if you use it with short stroke or one long stroke, with the help of the spoolie, it’s easy to blend the product. So yeah, good product.
Saw this in the isle of temptation. I was like damn I didn’t know they carried Anastasia here. But I was too lazy to go down to pick up the proper product. So I was left with travel size pack in the shade dark brown. This is AU$23. Seems reasonable enough at the time. It has 3 product.
The clear brow gel is 2.5ml stated as mini. It’s really just a clear brow gel. Good for people with untamed brow hair. I don’t really set my brows, but I mean it’s nice to have around. Just in case. Nonetheless, a good product. Set everything in place. It doesn’t appear waxy, but it’s just slight stiff.
The mini tweezers is fine. It’s always nice to have good tweezers around. It’s a slanted tip, really sturdy. Really good at getting the hair out.
The mini brow wiz is 0.024g. What you see in the picture above, is basically how much product you get. So you can see why this is not worth the money. It’s so thin and fragile. So easy to break. You have to be really careful applying this. The product itself is great. It’s a good colour. Dark brown seems to suit me well. It transfer well and manage to shape my brows with no problem. It just easy and I can see why so many people love this. I actually do like this cause it’s so compact and when you take the cap off, it can be connected making the pencil longer. So yeah, it’s good. Just too little.
So $23, reasonable price? I think not. But I am glad I did pick it up. It’s nice to have minis. And it’s nice to try something new.
