I purchased this at my local CVS for about $6-7 retail in medium 02. I have very dark, black eyebrows and even though the two brow shades appear to be light, they work very well for a natural brow look that does not look stark or insanely dark. The shadows (there are two, one dark, one very light, both work for my brows) were very smooth, easy to work with and a dream to blend. The highlight shade is perfect. It has a tad bit of slight frosty sheen but it's not too much nor does it look over done. It really brightens the brow bone and inner tear ducts.
I really like the to-go packaging. Yes, it's plastic and not the most sturdy or tiny, but it does it's job. It has a lift out section with a sponge applicator for highlight, a mini brow brush and a tiny pair of tweezers. I do not believe these are meant to replace full size tools but are great in emergencies. It also has a small mirror under the tools. The applicator is your average run of the mill sponge, it gets the job done. The mini brow tool works very well. It has a nice angled point to get between sparse hairs but thick enough to grab the brow powder for precise placement. The angled tweezers are a bit stiff but they do work at grabbing tiny hairs. I think over time, it may be less stiff. But it's nice to have a tiny pair for emergencies. The only thing missing is a wax or something similar to keep the hairs in place once the powder has been applied. I hope they will expand the kit or make room for a wax to set the brow hairs. But to be fair, I did not have an issue with this sliding around or fading in the hot florida sun. I do carry NYX's brow push up with a wax on one end to set the hairs in my makeup travel bag. Overall, this is an excellent kit for your dollar and comes in very natural shades.
