it is OK, but not the best. the price is too expensive and maybe 80% of it goes to the package. the brush inside is not easy to handle, bristle is too harsh, the tweezer is ok though. and the mirror??? i just can not use it at all, make me dizzy...compare with baremineral and benefit, i like this one least.
By far one of the most expensive brow products I have EVER purchased. However this is one of the best you can currently buy on the market if you live for the "naturally flawless eyebrows" look. It takes more time to do your eyebrows with this product as opposed to a traditional pencil, but the results are truly flawless. The undertone to this powder is grey, therefore you will not look like you have anything in your brows even in natural or fluorescent lighting (ugly and obvious red pencil strokes in your eyebrows, anyone?). Another great thing about this is that you are getting more than your $65 dollars worth. One palette has easily lasted me throughout 2 years and still has a lot of mileage left -- whereas i'll go through anywhere between 4-6 pencils every two years. Great investment for anyone who can't leave the house without undetectable, flawless eyebrows!
Holy eyebrows this was expensive! I became interested in this product after a lady from the Chanel counter did my makeup at one of their events. When I came home I was shocked by how full and beautiful my eyebrows were and when I looked at them closely, they did not look filled in at all so of course, later that day I bought a kit. Here's where it gets rough: the price. I paid $70CAN for this kit not including tax. The price almost gave me a heart attack. Really Chanel? This product was amazing and I would buy it again but $70 for 3 colours and only one of them you will use- not the smartest system and horrid pricing. That for me personally is the only downfall of this product. However, one very unfortunate thing about this kit other than the price is that it does not cater to people with blond eyebrows. The lightest shade is comparable to Omega eyeshadow by MAC so if your eyebrows are any lighter than that, you're out of luck. One weird thing about this kit is that the texture of the 'shadows' or 'eyebrow colours' is so bizarre and unlike anything I've ever felt before. I did not find that it was compatible with a standard brow brush but only with their mini brush that came with the kit since the bristles are so stiff. Overall I personally really enjoyed the kit but am still deciding if it was worth it! Be very cautious when going to purchase this because if you don't like it, thats a lot of money to give away for a disliked product.
Again, not recommended for girls with blonde or red brows**
I love this brow kit. It is pricey but i have been using it everyday for almost a year and it is still as new. i prefer it to brow pencils. U can mix the 3 colors or just use one at a time depends on ur skin and hair color.
When I first tried this, I was honestly disappointed. It felt like I had to scrape the dry product off (Mac 266 didn't work too soft), and it applied very harshly and was hard to control. I love my Shu uemura hard brow pencil, still do. But I've learnt the trick with this powder, or rather wax brow product. Try using the brush it comes with but just light strokes on the powder and light long feather strokes across yr brow. Tilt the brush for a finer tip application and viola! Natural brows and last the whole day! Pricey and potentially hard to work with, I can use the darkish or middle dark brown shades but becos my brows are blackish, I prefer the darker shade. This will last forever, so I don't see why I'd repurchase. Lol. The Chanel compact looks amazing too, but super pricey for a brow product!
This is the best brow powder I have ever used. For years I had overplucked my brows on the top and outer sides- by the time I realised how ridiculous it looked, hardly any hairs would grow back. For me, it's less a case of 'filling in' bare spots, and more a case of essentially creating a brow shape along the top. Pencils looked way too harsh, and every powder I've used prior to this either looked too heavy or was the wrong colour match (I have olive skin and dark brown/black hair). I was amazed to see that Chanel's perfect brows looks so so natural. Given the fact I have virtually no hairs where I apply it, I can hardly see that I have any brow powder on at all! I a so happy! The powder comes in three shades, I use the darkest brown- I don't use their brush, its rubbish, I use my own softer one. The product goes on very faintly, I have to apply a few layers of this shadow to get the look I want, but the extra time this takes is definitely worth it, as the final result is very very natural. I HIGHLY recommend this, it's worth the money!
Yes, it is expensive, the brushes suck, but man, this product is good.
It lasts me for 3 years now, use it every day, bu with my own Anastia brush.
The colors are sublime, because cool toned, and not reddish, like most eyebrow products.
Though I do not have a lot of eyebrows left (why WHY was plucking so populair in the nineties??), I get complimented with my brows on a weekly basis.
Please, do not let the price hold you back, it really is the best out there.
This was an expensive splurge for me but it was worth every penny! I believe well groomed brows can impact the entire face and perfect brows do just that. I always come to Chanel products with high hopes and receive just what I had in mind. Love the packaging and the product, it's the total package.
Well Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is NOT the universal brow product it claims to be... There is not a color option for us light blonde's. The quality is very nice and as always the packaging is sleek, luxe, and beautiful just as you would expect from Chanel.
I would not re-purchase, or recommend this to blonde's or silver foxes, because there is no color match!
I like this product, but I have to forewarn others before they invest in this product that it is not the absolute best eyebrow kit out there. In fact, I don't think the cost balances out with its value. I've paid $70CDN for this product, which is outrageously expensive for basically 3 eyebrow powders.The reason why I love it is because I find the set in "20 Brun" is cool-toned (grey-toned) unlike a lot of other brow sets I've used in the past and that it wears for a very long time. As with most brow powders, the finish is very natural because you don't have the same control with a brush and powder as you may have with a pencil or pen. I have to admit, it's slightly more work to use this set as oppose to a pencil that you can swiftly draw in. I know you may be thinking, "so if there are so many negative points about this product, why do you still like it?" At the end of the day, I think that this brow set is a good basic staple to have especially when I am not too fussy about how precise I have to be with my brows. I have naturally thick brows that just need a little filling in so that the tail end is darker. So you see, I'm not hard to please. As for the brush that everyone complains about, I agree that it is very wiry and hard which is why it can feel scratchy and rough on the skin. I don't like that it's so rough, but I understand that the brush has to be rigid enough to pack enough of pigment on my brows. I've tried using softer brow brushes and it never seems to work as well with this powder. My gripe is if anyone has to spend $70 on a brow kit, it better crazy good. Sadly though, this product isn't that amazing. I like this and will continue using it because I am a Chanel junkie. To be honest, if it wasn't for the brand, I don't think I'd be repurchasing.
