Apologies for my waaaay overdue "My Current Favourites" post! I have been really busy with work lately, and have so many posts ideas and not enough time!
Being an indecisive person that I am, I couldn't decide what products to do this "My Current Favourite" post on. I finally settled on eyebrow stuff, so let's get started!
These three products are my ultimate favourite eyebrow kits - Essence eyebrow stylist set, MUA pro-brow ultimate eyebrow kit, and Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar.
Starting off with Essence, I really like how cheap and effective this little eyebrow kit is. I only use the darker shade (no. 2 - I've numbered each shade in all the pictures for convenience in the swatch pictures below), as the lighter shade of brown is too light for me. I wish that they packaged each shade separately, as it's such a waste! Another thing I didn't like about the packaging was the need to pull out the whole plastic "plate" containing the eyebrow powders in order to get the brush out, which I thought was brilliant. However, when I tried to clean it, I accidentally pulled a bunch of brush fibres out and now it's not very even (and thus, not as 'effective' as before). I also didn't find the stencils useful at all because they're far too long for my eyebrows. You might be wondering "why the heck is this in your favourites if there are so many negatives?!" Well, I think the quality of the powder and the brush (before I ruined it) was amazing and together with the price (can't remember but I think it was less than $5), the pros outweigh the cons!
Next, we have the MUA Pro-Brow Kit, retailing at a very affordable price of £3.50. It comes with a darker brown shade - No. 1 (which is one I truly use and abuse), a lighter brown shade - No. 2, a nude-ish shade - No. 3 (which I sometimes use as a highlight), and a gel to set your brows. I don't ever use the gel because I've never felt the need to set my brows. The kit also came with a double ended brush and a pair of mini tweezers (not pictured). I have to say that the brush is quite stiff, and I guess that's why it's so bloody amazing. It picks up a good amount of powder, and allow for precise application with the angled, stiff brush fibres. Packaging wise, I don't have any major problems, although it's on the chunky side, which might not be too ideal for light travelling (compared to the other two eyebrow products in this post). Having said that, it's got a huge-ass mirror, which means that you don't have to worry about packing an additional mirror.
4. Mirror. Ok so maybe this point could have gone into point number 1 but for justification purposes, it shall be its own point because everyone needs a mirror... Although it's nearly half the size of the MUA one, the mirror is big enough for tweezing and primping up your brows, which is what you NEED in a brow kit right?
What is/are your favourite eyebrow product(s)? Have you tried any of these eyebrow primping goodness?
