I try other brow kits but always keep coming back to this! The price is amazing, and also it's pigmented but not too much so my eyebrows look drawn on. it's very good for a natural but defined look.

I have used Brow Zings by Benefit and to me this is the same exact product. I actually do like the little brush that comes with it to apply the wax but use a different brush to apply the filler. This lasted me about 5 months and it's super cheap!

I have dark brown black hair and I bought the medium option in-store. I haven't ever seen the dark option available at my Target, and I've heard that other people have had a hard time finding it as well. Given that there was nothing else I wanted from ELF, the shipping price of $5-6 would just about triple the price so I opted for the cheaper if not perfectly matched option.

The gel side is a decent enough color match considering I only need a little bit (if I had sparse brows, I think it would be too obvious though) and is very easy to use. The provided tools are of course not the best, but work well enough that I do not mind using them. As mentioned by other reviewers, the powder side is much too warm but I have occasionally repurposed it as an eyeshadow. I have had no problems with the lasting power or smearing without setting the product, but I do have dehydrated-normal skin and don't usually have any difficulties.

Overall, the medium worked well enough for filling in my eyebrows a little bit. Since I only regularly used half of the product though and it was not a perfect color match, I won't be repurchasing though. It's not without flaws, but I would recommend this to someone looking for a cheap and easy-to-use brow option.

This is my first review on here and I decided to do it about my absolutely favourite makeup product ever. I only started using Elf products last month when I overhauled everything I owned and replaced it with cruelty free. I've tried a few things that I've liked, but this brow kit is just amazing. I use it in Medium and firstly I apply the wax with an angled brush (not the one that comes with the kit, just because it's too short for me to use easily) and I then tab the powder over the top of it to set it and make the texture look a bit more natural. For this I use the fluffy end of the brush that comes with the kit. The result is always amazing. From my fairly sparse, fair brows (I have dark brown hair) I get a very natural result, so much so that several people have commented on my brows and not even realise they are basically totally not my own! On top of this it lasts ALL DAY. Yesterday, for example, I put the product on at 8am and didn't get home till midnight. They were still absolutely perfect. Up close you could see the most slight patchiness on the tapered ends of my brows, but nothing that would be visible further away than staring closely at myself in the mirror. Today my brows have lasted 12 hours in the London rain and are still perfect. This product is just brilliant, and the fact that it is a bargain and cruelty free is the icing on the cake.

this little kit is sooooo amazing for the price. the gel helps to keep your brows in place throughout the day, and the powder sets and fills in the gel. you can use this for a natural look or something more bold. i usually use the little double-ended brush that comes with it for convenience even though it's kind of crappy. i don't see the point of having the brush that comes with it but not including a spool brush, which is sort of necessary for using gel products like this on your brows.

I got this as a gift for my birthday other than that i would not have bought it myself, it works alright a bit to dark for my eye brows as mine are a shade lighter.

When I first started filling in my brows, I used random, cheap brown pencils from the drugstore that were really bad and didn't help me achieve the look I wanted. I got this at the recommendation from shaaanxo way back in the day. I've used this in 2 colours, dark and ash (when I had platinum hair).

*Price: It's ELF.
*Packaging: A sturdy little plastic case that comes with a tiny double-ended brush, one side is angled and the other is more like an eyeshadow brush? There is one coloured gel and one powder to set.
*Product: The wax is incredible, given the price. It's not pigmented like the ABH pomade but it gives enough colour to fill your brows in just enough, and does help keeps brow hairs in place. I wouldn't rely on it like a brow gel, but if you're going for a natural look, this is perfect. The powder is just that - a powder. I didn't use the powders from either kits because I found the dark powder too warm and the ash powder turned the wax pure grey.
*Positives: It's affordable and an easy way to transition yourself into starting to fill your brows in. If you have full brows, I don't think it's necessary to set the wax with a powder, but it does help to prolong the wear. I did set the wax with other eyeshadows sometimes, but it wasn't necessary for me, as I have fairly full brows to begin with, and I don't like a harsh, sculpted brow look. If anything, I would put powder over the tail ends of the brows just to keep them from fading. The colour range is pretty good.
*Negatives: The brush it comes with is crap, but you can grab the elf angled brush for another $3. It's not incredibly long-lasting, but it isn't marketed as waterproof or long-lasting anyway. I just wish they had an option that was darker than dark, and an auburn/red option, but when it's that affordable, I can't really complain!

Another thing I want to add is that it makes a great waxy base for other colours of eyeshadow/brow powder. At one point I had red hair, so I put a red eyeshadow over the dark wax. At another point, I had purple hair, then hot pink hair, and I would put a purple and pink powder over the ash wax, and it held up great. I would recommend this to anyone. Literally anyone. Whether you're on a budget or not, this is a great every day product if you can get down with the shade selection. My hair is currently black and I am using the ABH brow wiz in ebony because it looks more natural on me, but if my hair were light enough for me to use the ELF brow kit again, I would. In fact, I have two backups of the dark kit in case I go brunette again, and two of the ash kit in case I go blonde again. I only wouldn't repurchase because I prefer a darker brow now. That's the only reason. So try it out, but get a good brush first!

Very good! Just got this today, and find it really pigmented. I use it with my own brush and I think it is much easier to do my eyebrows with this eyebrow kit compared to using pencil. The outcome is very natural, and it is very cheap!! Definitely will repurchase this if I finished this, which I think I can finish this quite fast.

I am on my 4th batch of this eyebrow kit, for the price who's complaining! $4 on Iherb! Bargain! amazing product, only marked down one lippy due to its staying powder. I wish it had a bit longer staying power maybe something between ABH Brow pot and this would be fanatastic.

P.S who ever uses the powder side? A slight complaint I have is that this colour never matches the cream!

I have this in Dark. The first eyebrow kit that I bought. I used to use eyebrow pencil.
I love it! Very pigmented and long lasting for such price! Also easy to use for the kit beginner like me.
