I've got Auburn since I dye my hair the same color and black eyelined brows just dont look right. I've had this brow powder for a little bit over 8 months now and still have barely made a dent in how much I've used. If it was sanitary and makeup didnt expire this could probably last me over 5 years! LoL. Looks awesome and natural without that fake drawn on look that pencil can make. I've been drawling on half my brows for years now- by choice- because I like high arches, sadly nature did not bless me with. I use NYX black eye pencil first and then this powder. The 2 combined give me a rich dark auburn color. Very pigmented- worth the few bucks because you get a ton, I highly recommend.
I received this item in a swap -- and let me tell you, it is excellent! I have used several different eyebrow powders and pencils and this is easily the best. I have the brunette shade, which is perfect for my eyebrow color. It looks so natural. I use a regular angled eyebrow brush and it takes me maybe a minute to do both eyebrows. There is no fall-out. I don't even need to run a spooly brush through them or set them with wax or gel -- the color just stays all day without fading or smudging! When it comes to washing off my makeup at night, this removes cleanly and quickly. I will certainly repurchase whenever I run out, but that will not be for a long time because there is enough product in one pot to last well over a year, possibly more.
I have this in Dark Blonde/ Medium Brown. This has an ash base which is perfect for my complexion. I have very thin eyebrows so I first shape with my Milani pencil then I fill in with this powder.. Last all day !! One good thing to know.. is that this container will last you MONTHS !! Alittle goes a long way. For 11 bucks you can't beat it !
I love this product because the colour (ash blonde) is perfect for me and it gives me so natural filling not looking ridiculously *shaped*. My face suffers a great asymmetry which is also reflected in the brows and this is a life-saver
I have this in pale ash blonde. The color of this is awesome when I swipe this on my hand. Its a pale ash blonde. I apply this lightly with smashbox angle eyebrow brush and its a nice color. I just don't understand how it can look so light and then on my brows it looks a lot darker like a taupe color. Maybe its just my brows mixing with the color of the product? I don't think I'm applying this too heavy handed! This lasts all day and does look natural. You get a ton of product for I think I payed 12 dollars. I put I wouldn't buy this product again because you get so much I won't need to forever. This is probably my second favorite eyebrow filler.
This brow color (brunette) is the perfect color for girls with black hair. If raven-haired girls like myself try to use browns in our eyebrows, we end up with brows that look "red"... not cute. For some reason you need a pigment with some "ashyness" in it. Yeah I said it... ashyness. sounds crazy right? before i used this B.E. brow color, i was using a dark brown shade to fill my brows, and i could never figure out why my brows looked slightly reddish in photos. I came across this product and immediately noticed the difference. It is so natural that it looks like I was born with amazing eyebrows. I will never go back to that brown shade again! This B.E. brow color comes in a tiny jar with a sifter. I'm not crazy about the packaging because the jar is so small... but the quality of the product is great so I don't mind. I didn't need much product so the jar will probably last a long while.
I got this in Brunette, which is WAY WAY too dark for me. I have black hair as well, but the powder was way too much of a flat ashy dark, almost charcoal gray to look natural. I looked like Groucho Marx.
The formula itself seems like it's probably pretty good, but since the color was so off, I didn't really get a chance to wear it very long since I pretty much took it off right away. The other colors might be a better match for others, but unless you have raven hair, this might not be the best for you.
Aside from the usual BE non-travel-friendly packaging, this container does come with a sifter, which is way better than not having one, which is how I heard the old packaging was.
I wasn't sure what to expect because I've only used pencils. However, I haven't been able to find any natural-colored pencils so I tried this powder as a last result. Not only was it a powder but a loose powder. And I love it! The look is natural and you need very little (if you overapply, it looks fake).
I use this all the time for my brows and I really like it. I have naturally dark eyebrows so the brunette color works perfectly for me. You have to use a light hand with the powder though or the color will go on very dark. I remedy this problem by simply picking up the color from the lid instead of from the powder in the container. This also makes the container last a really long time because you barely need any powder to get the desired effect. It can be easy to spill over too so be careful. It stays on very well throughout the day, but I always use it with a brow gel. I don't like brow pencils as well as powder because I have a much heavier hand with a pencil and I could never find a good match for my dark brow color that wasn't too black or too brown. Because of this, Bare Escentuals brow powder is perfect for me.
I bought the lightest shade and it comes out way to dark on my eyebrows. It always spills and drys out my skin, I guess this is a love it or leave it product.
