Alright I have BLACK hair and I was happy that this dark brown/brown palette worked perfect for me.
I literally stood in front of the nyx makeup area deciding if I should buy just because the store didn't carry the black/grey one and this was the next darkest color. SO glad I went with my instinct and just bought it!!
I have been stalking every review possible!! Not sure why since this seemed to get consistent great ratings and I see why, now that I tried it for myself.
After watching so many Youtube beauty gurus use it, I was still somehow shocked at how little the actual powder portion is in the packaging. Doesn't matter because a little goes a looong way with eyebrow stuff, you know that! Great product for a wonderful price. Oh ya the brush is shit so I wouldn't bother with the angled one. Just use a longer handle brush for this one. I use the E.L.F concealer brush, it's very short and sucks so badly for use with concealer but ever since I started using them for eyebrow powders and gel eyeliners, it's HG status.no joke if you don't believe me then buy one they are only $1.
This is a very good brow powder that is affordable without sacrificing quality. My common problem with other eyebrow products I've used is that they're either too dark, too harsh, or have too much of a red tint to them. This product has two perfect shades of brunette to use in order to customize the right shade of brown for your eyebrows. The staying power is phenomenal as well! I can put it on in the morning, then come home at 10 pm and it's still as if I just put it on. It's not patchy, and it doesn't look obvious that you have product on your eyebrows.While it's useful that it comes with a spoolie and some gel to set your eyebrows, I find it hard to transfer clear gel that's pressed into a compact to my eyebrows. My only complaint is that the packaging popped open pretty easily when I dropped it and a bit of the powder broke apart, but that is mostly my fault!
This is my HG for eyebrows!! I love how smoothly it goes on and it matches my exact hair color! This powder makes my eyebrows look so natural and crisp. It stays on all day and it comes off easily with water. If I don't have a dark brown eyeshadow on hand, I'll use this as a blending color for my smokey eyes. It's easy to use, convenient and designed for on the go trips. One con I have is the angled brush is too harsh against my skin so I just use it as a touch up brush. I love the price on this powder and I will keep buying it.
Holy grail product for my eyebrows. The brown shade is perfect for daytime and doesn't have any red tint to it, which so many other "brown" eyebrow products do, and the dark brown shade can be mixed with the lighter shade for nighttime. I have very dark eyebrows for my hair color (medium brown hair, almost black eyebrows), but both shades look very natural on me. The set comes with a wax to help keep eyebrows in place, and it does a great job of it. The set also comes with a two little brushes, but they're so tiny and cheap, you're much better off buying an angled brush of your own. I think I'll be using this for years to come!
Bought NYX brow powder based on all the great reviews, and I was quite pleased: brows looked dark without being too harsh and the wax kept everything in place. Awesome product!
I love everything about this product. The brush it comes with is very stiff and gives you control when applying it, the colour matches perfectly and since they give you two it's easy to find a good match. The wax allows the colour to stick to the skin instead of just the hair so it's perfect if you have sparse hairs or any spaces anywhere that powder alone wouldn't fill in. Can build up the colour to either look very natural for daytime or a bit more filled in for nighttime. Just can't say enough good things about it, it's perfect and I will definitely repurchase
I'm a big fan of this kit! First of all, the colour variety is great - black to blonde & nice browns & reds in between! I use it frequently & I love the package which is wax & two shades of brown. It's great that there is more than one shade because it helps gives my eyebrows a more natural look & for $2.99, I can't complain! This kit is amazing & does everything I need it to.
Cheap, matches my eyebrows, comes with a spoolie and an eyebrow brush, comes with a wax and 2 colors. Basically, it's good for what you pay. I like it, but the powders aren't...powdery enough..if that even makes sense? I feel like the powders sometimes apply unevenly and cling to the dry skin around my eyebrows (no i don't overdraw my eyebrows, the skin right around my eyebrows is dry due to plucking).
So I'm always trying to find the perfect eyebrow powder or liner for my sparse Asian eyebrows. After going to Ricky's I decided why not try NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Black/Gray.
Package: comes with two pressed powders, one in grey and one in black with a little pot of wax. A mini angled brush and a spoolie.
Price: 5.99 on Ulta.com
Pros: Two options of black and gray allowing a variation to define and fill in your brows. Color matched perfect with my brows as most others I find have too much brown in them or are too black and look unnatural.
Cons: You need to use your own eyebrow brush, the one that comes with it is very stiff and a bit too thick to draw the outside thinner part of the eyebrow. You definitely need some sort of eyebrow wax or sealer to keep the powder in place and the one that comes with it for me is a bit too gloss when the light hits your eyebrow.
Overall I would buy the product again because the shades are a perfect match for me and a great price but I do need to find a better sealer for the powder.
