The product

The Eyebrow Kit comes with two colours: a dark gel and a lighter powder. There is a little brush included, but I lost it so I can't tell how the quality is. Both the gel and powder have a very dry formula, which makes the application incredibly long lasting. Each pan contains about 1g worth of product. You can use this kit on the go, as it also includes a little mirror on the back of the lid.

The pigmentation

The pigmentation isn't too bad, but using a brush will pick up the colour a lot better. One swatch is definitely not enough, so you do need to take a little more time to fill in your brows.

The application

To show you how it looks on actual eyebrows, here are three pictures where I applied it on myself. Yes, it's a little weird to look at eyebrow pictures, but please bare with me.

Before. You can see a little 'bald spot' on the right brow, which I'll cover up with the brow gel.

Left: Applied with only brow powder, Right: Applied with only brow gel.

Right: Applied brow powder on top.

There is obviously a big difference on how my eyebrows look like after application. The brow powder is too light to use on its own, but I wouldn't recommend this kit if you're looking for a brow powder only (Why buy a kit if you only need powder?) There's not much difference on the second and third picture if you look at the right eyebrow, but the powder does certainly help with getting the right colour on my eyebrows and to soften the look a bit.

The verdict

A product worth its value! Will definitely keep using this for when I have random 'bald spots' and need to cover it up with brow gel. For other days, I'd probably use a brow powder only that is closer to my colour.

Rating: 4/5

A bit too long overdue, but I hope this review was helpful. I probably won't be posting anything until after March because of preparations for intake interviews, but I'll be back before you know it! Until then~
