Review of Laura Mercier brow powder duo by stefleaf
The MA at the Laura counter insisted that my shade was Deep Blonde, which shocked me because I'm a brunette. (About me: Filipina mestiza, i.e. fair Asian skin with yellow undertones, and deep brown hair that's almost black). He applied the Deep Blonde on my brows and they looked great: neat and full, but still natural. However, I insisted that he test out the Ash shade on my brows, just so that I could see the difference... and it made me look like a drag queen! Thank God for MAs. I think Laura Mercier should consider renaming the Deep Blonde shade, since a lot of other people have commented that it really just isn't for blondes at all.
That said, I am fascinated with this product. It works exactly the way it should. The powder goes on smoothly and lasts the whole day. You'll have to buy the proper brush to apply it, though, and that would be an eyebrow brush made of badger hair. Laura's brush works well but there is a less expensive alternative in the Japonesque brush line.
