This is THE product for me. I wear it even when I'm only walking my dog and pretend I'm not wearing any make-up and I get away with it EVERY TIME. It fills in my eyebrows so perfectly and naturally people are generally shocked to see me without it ("What did you do to your brows??"). I use the darker combination (black/brown) and my black to brown usage ratio is maybe 5:1 as I have jet black hair and eyes.
The price is reasonable and even with my frequency of use it lasts a long time (it took me a year to use up my first one, and even then it's only the black powder that is all used up). It gets a bit messy after a while (the excess powder can get all over the place) and the packaging is sleek but the quality is so-so. Of course the way my eyebrows look beats these minor faults, so YES I will be restocking this over and over again and YES I recommend this product for y'all.
Ok! First of all, I did not buy this for brows but for eyeliner. The name is Brow & Liner Kit. I was about to try the one from Shiseido but last weekend discovered TBS had the same product. I bought the O3. With a wet MAC brush it goes on smoothly and has pretty good staying power. I always end up wearing eye liner on top part of my eye. This, so far, is way better than any crayon I've tried and application is easier to do than gel. Gel always looks too harsh on me, even in dark brown. This color is a very deep brown and suits my eyes perfectly. Unless I decide to try Shiseido and find it better, I will repurshase.
OMG, this is really the best eyebrow kit anyone can ever hope for. I bought no. 2, even I have dark brownish hair. The darker colour suits my eyebrow colour perfectly and for tail end, the lighter colour is good as filling the gap for the hair. I never have such natural looking brows since I started makeup ( since I was 12 yo). The brushes that are in the compact is good, just need some practice. okay, when you use the brush, you need to dap on the tail-end to create an arch and do hold the brush at an angle so you will have finer tail. Initially I had hard time doing it by using convectional way of using the brush, after trial and error. I managed to get the perfect brows that I was dreaming of:):). The only -ve point is the case, which is 2/3 of my tbs all in one compact. But it is only small issue. The price is good, the quality superb. What else can anyone asked for. You want perfect brows, go and get it!!! What are you waiting for:):)
I have this product in no3, the darkest shades, and it fits my black brows very nicely! Not too ashy, not too reddish. I use a hint of the lightest colour mixed with a bit more of the darkest one (like one tap on the first, three taps on the second with an angled brush) to fill in some gaps and define the outer tip. It stays well on my combination skin all day long, even on warm summer days, not using any wax or gel over it (but I don't sweat a lot on my forehead). Unfortunately the packaging is a bit rubbish because one of the pans came loose pretty quickly (but I guess that happens) and the included brush must be some sort of a joke, who uses that? HOW do you use that? Not the MUA that suggested it to me, she used an angled brush...
I've used the lighter shade as an eyeliner and it worked fine too.
It's brilliant! I have been using pencils or eyeshadow since I was like 11 to thicken or enhanse my brows. I colour my hair often too, so I had easily 12 pencils of different brands and colours. I don't like the brush it came with though... Rather pathetic. I use an eyeliner brush to apply it. If I ever run out of this product I would definitely purchase again.
I love this because its so easy to use and the double-sided brush is absolutely amazing. Beats using eyebrow pencils any day ;)
I switched to this from TBS Brow Pencil, and before that Shiseido Brow Pencil. I am really glad I let the SA convince me to try a powder instead of a pencil - it is much easier to get an even set of brows, and this kit lasts FAR longer than the TBS Brow Pencil! I use a cheap Manicare angled eyeliner brush - the brush that comes with the kit looks horrible and I haven't dared try it.
I have the Brown/Brunette kit: the "light" half appears sort of greyish compared to the "dark" half, which appears sort of reddish. This works out okay for me however - when my hair is not coloured (a mousy light brown), I use more of the greyish side, and when my hair is coloured slightly coppery, I use more of the reddish side.
The packaging is fine mechanically (there's a little clasp to open the compact), but I don't like the silver top - it looks grotty once you've had the compact for a few months and it's been rattling around in the makeup bag!
I have said "yes" to repurchasing, however I may look further afield when my current one runs out. Having two different powders seems a bit silly, as it's hard to use them up evenly (that could just be the OCD talking...)
I use this every day. And I've been using for at least 2 years and I'm not even halfway through the pans yet!
I have switched to using a Artiste brow brush but the included one was not too bad, the angled end was nice and thick and stiff enough to give comprehensive but natural looking coverage, even if the thin eyeliner brush on the other end was crap. I have dark brown hair and use this in 02, which I think is Brunette (well, duh, that makes sense!). This is pigmented, very matte and not too powdery. Last all day on me and I usually don't even have to top it up with wax or gel because my brows are pretty well behaved. It gives nice definition and looks natural and I like having the choice of two shades. I tend to use the lighter one for natural and day time looks and the darker one more more dramatic or party looks. Heaps of product, not too expensive (I think I paid $28NZD a few years ago), lasts for ages and looks great. The only bad thing is that I have become so used to using it, I feel compelled to take it even when I travel and the compact isn't ideal for that, its too bulky and mine is very worn and bashed looking by now.
But I do love this and I would definitely buy it again. It's a keeper for me!
I used this for a few years before i started using my favourite eyebrow powder (E.L.F. Studio brow powder) and it worked really well. I had the 02 shade as my hair is a dark brown and the 03 shade looked too dark. I was disappointed when the brush broke and found out recently that a friend's brush broke too - it's not very well packaged! I overcame the broken brush disaster by buying the smashbox travel eyebrow brush! Overall a good eyebrow powder.
I really like this kit. i have dark brown hair and brows so i find this works well for me-i got the darkest shade.
Some have given this lower reviews due to the brush but i find that to be silly, since the actual product works real well.
on me this last all day and looks natural, which is what i really wanted. the packaging is cute but its a bit bulky.
its kind of pricey but i have had it for 6 months and havent made a significant dent in it. overall im happy with this and would repurchase
