i got this during Christmas. i use the brunette. Its the perfect shades for my hair. Bot look natural and most of the time i use both. I also get lots of compliments on how nice my brows are when i use this.
I got a sample from Sephora for this powder a few months ago and I was very impressed. I use brunette, and the shades match me perfectly, they are not too dark or too light, I can use either side.They are very neutral, no hint of red which is the problem i was having with other powder shades; this one is very natural and subtle looking. My brows are a little sparse, so I just need to fill in lightly at the arches to make them more defined and polished, so this powder does the trick. I also use Diorshow brow gel (which I love) with this to shape and define my brows. I also love the packaging, it is a cute, pretty little compact and I was surprised to find when I opened it after finally purchasing it two weeks ago, it even has a tiny mirror - very handy!
I have very sparse and thin eyebrows. I've always dreaded doing my brows because nothing I used ever really worked or lasted a whole day on me. I have an oily t-zone so I've always had an issue with products coming off on my brows since they too tend to get oily. I've tried pencils, powders, eyeshadows, tinted gels etc - anything that a lot of beauty gurus raved about I bought and tried.
Youtube suddenly started flooding with Anastasia kits given free to popular gurus. At first I didn't believe in the quality of the products since a lot of the gurus got them for free to begin with to review and advertise, but one guru (who didn't even get a free kit or do a video about Anastasia) really got me interested in the duo powder. Her brows always looks so well groomed, filled in and looked natural that I messaged her asking for her brow product secret lol. She uses the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo and suggested I just buy the powder instead of the whole kit since it's not a staple kit.
It took me awhile to get used to the powder since it came with 2 shades, I use brunette (I have very dark brown blackish looking hair). It took awhile getting used to the shades, but either one of the shades or both works great on me! I could never get my brows the shade or shape I want until I tried this powder. I've used MAC Brow Shader (discontinued), Smashbox and all types of other brow mechanism you can think of. THIS powder is by far the most beginner's user friendly! When I applied too heavily, the powder was easy to blend out without making a mess on my face. It looked so natural and stayed on all day even during the summer heat. Other brow powders tend to fade or look uneven, but not this one!
It will come off if you get your face wet and accidentally smudge the product, but it stays put when I use my makeup sealer from La Femme (it's only $3! it's like She'Laq, but a lot cheaper!). This is my MUST HAVE brow product :) I love pairing it with Anastasia's Clear Brow Gel, but it's not a must have. Any clear non-flaking mascara will do the job :)
I have been extroadinarly happy with the Brunette Brow Powder Duo - II. It matches me PERFECTLY! A little bit goes a long way leaving a very fresh and natural look. I will continue to repurchase as necessary.
I love this! A little goes a long way, and doing my brows ties my whole look together. I've used numerous other brow products, including the great but more subtle Ardell brow gel in light brown, and this is by far my favorite for a full-face makeup day. It lasts all day for me, no fallout, no smearing.
I've been using the duo in Medium Ash for almost a year now. I'm not sure that it deserves HG status, but I'm definitely happy enough with it to not go looking for another one. I am Asian with black hair, but I have really sparse brows so my first try with TBS brown/black duo really really scared me. The SA at my Sephora suggested this one since my brows are so sparse and because the medium ash has no red undertones in it. I love it. It looks totally natural. I use the darker side for the outer half of my brows and the lighter shade for the inner half of my brows (basically meeting at my arch) and it works really well for me because I felt that using the same color for the entire brow looked too harsh (esp since my brow hairs are pretty sparse at the insides). Lasting power isn't quite as good as I'd like it to be, but given that it looks pretty good throughout the day, I can be happy with it. It definitely does not last past 6 hours ish though. (But given I have to use UDPP and Painterly to keep e/s on my lids, I'm not that surprised or upset). I really like the little compact. It's cute. I'm only starting to see a dip in the dark side, so I'm pretty sure this will last me just about forever, so even though it is kind of expensive, it pans out in the end.
I got this product in ash blonde- which I suggest getting if you have very light to even dark blonde hair, as the shades are dark and you can just apply more of the lighter shades for darker brows.
It is very natural- the two powders, a lighter blonde and dark when brushed on look so fitting. I apply the lighter shade first, then go over it in the darker one, but you can do either or.
I also think the most important thing with using this right is a
good brush, so make sure you have a good brush!
I love this, it looks very natural. I have the brunette one and I mostly use the lighter side, I wish the whole thing was the lighter shade. The darker one is a little too dark for me. I got this after benefit brow zing in medium, huge mistake. That powder was a weird redish brown color and the wax that came with it, made the powder clump. Waste of 30 bucks.The downfall is of course the price. 22 bucks for a small eyeshadow thats about the size of a mac shadow.
I LOVE this brow powder. I've used MAC, drugstore, eyeshadows, etc but this duo is really natural looking, subtle yet pigmented enough to fill in gaps. The powder is really soft and doesnt made hard lines like eyeshadows do. And I think the shades suite each hair color. I have Medium ash and i have dark brown hair. I use the lighter shade for the front of the brow, and the darker for the tail. it is a bit pricey, but it lasts for a while. I like that it has a mirror too.
This is my HG brow stuff! I use it all the time and It last forever! I love how I can mixt he colors to create my own color.. It is pricey... but it honestly last forever!!!!
