I love this product! I stumbled across it and am glad I did as previously I had struggled along using a pencil to define my brows. It's really easy to use and great for filling in sparse brows. The compact is sturdy and includes a good mirror and cute brushes and tweezers. It's not cheap but will last for ages and in my opinion worth it. The only downside as others say is that although this is the lightest shade available, I think it's quite dark. I'm blonde with brown eyebrows and it's just about ok for me, but if you had very fair eyebrows I think this would be too much. On days when I'm not wearing much makeup I just use the powder as it's more subtle.
I went to a Benefit Cosmetics Counter one day looking at another product for my brows. The SA offered to demonstrate the different brow products on me, telling me how lucky I am to actually have eye brows. I thought that was a bizarre statement, until I looked at hers more closely, which without brow makeup, would have been non-existent. She said she had over-plucked hers and now she was so sorry she had and has to use the kits/pencils just to have eyebrows. Well, that's not why I wanted the Brow Zing. My brows are very light in color and I'd been using pencils to arch/darken them. I wanted something with more staying power.
Enter Brow Zings. One side has the wax, the other has the powder. The kit has a little mirror, one angled brush, one regular brush and a tweezer. It's compact enough to carry with you in your makeup bag. It's not cheap. But I've had it about a year now and it's not even half-used so that should tell you how long it lasts. So in the long run, the price could be decent.
I like the angled brush. It works well in applying the wax to define my brows to the shape I want. The regular brush works well for applying the powder. They're small and easy to handle. They wash well and have held up well through the year. The tweezers are good tweezers. Even the compact mirror is a decent one.
My only complaint is that the color of the wax is darker than I would like in the Light. I still have to go lighter than I would like with the wax and use a very light blonde pencil to fill in or a clear wax pencil instead and the powder is also a little darker than I would like. If I'm going for a Marilyn Monroe type look or Audrey Hepburn eyebrow that's fine. Otherwise, I must lighten them with some mineral powder (which I would do anyway to set my brows). I also still run a brow brush through my brows after applying the wax/powder to straighten them and clear any particles of wax out of them.
Next time around I'll just stick with the clear wax pencil after using the blonde pencil to color in my brows. It seems like a lot of work but it's really the same, just using two pencils instead of two brushes. Also, I don't think it's too sanitary after awhile with the Brow Zing. I do clean the brushes regularly but I'm still wondering about how long the makeup will be sanitary. The pencils I can just put in a sharpener.
So if you like the convenience of your eyebrow kit in one little package, this kit would be for you at an expensive price if you like a darker brow. Otherwise, go buy one pencil in the shade you like and one wax pencil in clear and you're set to go for a lot cheaper. I'm sure you already have tweezers and a compact handy. Plus you'll have more control with the pencils.
I went to the benefit brow bar to get my brows done and i asked the girl to show me how to shape and give them more of an arch and she used the brow zings kit on me and i was sold. it comes with a pigmented wax, powder, small angled brush, small blending brush, mirror and a pair of tweezers. I make the shape around the brows with the angled brush & wax, fill them in then go over with the powder, this gives my brows such a gorgeous defined, arched brow that lasts all day long, the only negative i have is that for a 'light' shade it's pretty dark for my ashy blonde hair, i'd say more of a medium but i just use a pressed foundation powder over top to lighten it up and it's perfect continued >>
I love this product! I will start with the pros, the packaging is sturdy and had tumbled around in my purse many times without it getting harmed. The amount of product has lasted me forever, and I use it every single day. The powder is wonderfully pigmented and the wax shade paired with it is a perfect match. The two brushes and mini tweezers come in super handy. I wish I could give it a 5/5, but now for what I didn't like.
What bothers me about this product is it is not a universal light. Despite being a darker shade of blonde, my hair is ashy and much more of a silver blonde than a golden blonde. This powder when applied with a less conservative hand looks very dark and unnatural shade on me. I personally go for a full, thick, Audrey Hepburn like brow myself, so to have this powder not work for me makes me sad. It would be worth repurchasing if it was in my right color. So to be fair "yes" I would buy this product again, if I end up dyeing my hair It is worth the money if it works for you, alas not for me. 4/5 for the poor shade range in the product.
Amazing! I use this product daily, and it's just really lovely! Brushes along with a pair of tweezers are included with the wax and powder.
I recommend outlining your brows with the slanted brush and wax and gently stroking on the brow hairs, then blending in the powder. Works for me! ^.^
Nice color, I really like this, worth the money because it lasts a LONG time :)
Fantastic little product! Lasts ages! I have tried other cheaper ones of this and I always go back to this! <3 it!! continued >>
This is actually a really great product - good value because even though it is pretty pricey, you get a ton of product and it lasts and lasts.
Packaging quality is nice, and the little included tweezers work in a pinch (ha!) although I find they are too little to even think of replacing my tweezermans.
So why not 5 lippies? The color - this pulls very warm on me and everyone I've seen it on, which is great for those with warm toned hair. Unfortunately, mine isn't. And this makes my brows look too obviously different from my hair color no matter how I apply it.
But for those for whom the colors are a good match - this would be a great buy!
This is my favorite product to use for brows. I'm naturally a blonde, and I bought this before I dyed my hair red. It still works for me, though. I've never used the tweezer it comes with, but it might be good in a pinch. I prefer to use this with a standard size angle brush instead of the little ones it comes with, but I've used them before and they work fine as well. I like that you get a good amount of product, because it is kind of expensive. I usually apply the wax first, then fill in gaps with the powder. This product makes my eyebrows look so much nicer than they actually are, it's easy to use, and lasts all day. Definite repurchase.
Let me start off by saying that this brow product is for a bolder look - more when you want a more luscious, glamourous eyebrow look, not necessarily a natural one. I was matched in the light kit at Macy's. My brows are a very light ash blonde and somewhat sparse...really almost invisible, unless I do something to enhance them. This kit is on the darker side of what I would use on daily basis (Chanel eyebrow pencil in blond clair), but it gives me a really glamourous, full looking brow that I will never have on my own. It is great for photography or special occasions, in my opinion. The product itself is really nice...one side is a powder and the other is a tinted wax. The SA who matched me put the wax on first and then filled in with the powder on top, but I do the opposite...feather on the powder first, then go over the top with the wax, which gives a softer look. The powder is really creamy and I don't have any fallout from it and the wax is not too dry and not too soft. I use a Clinique slanted liner brush to apply and then smooth through it with a spoolie brush. I've had this product for over a year and its still nearly full (although I probably use it once or twice a month on average). Its a great product, but at 30 dollars, I probably won't buy it again when it runs out because I use it so infrequently. But if full, sexy brows are your everyday look, I highly recommend this.
