My eyebrows are always on fleek with this little kit! The wax is useful for shaping your crazy hairs, but to really make the powder stay all day use Nyx eyebrow primer instead. Comes with a brush which is perfect for lining and blending in; also a spoolie brush to tame the hairs.

I love this eyebrow shadow duo. It's very pigmented and does the job. I don't draw my eyebrows to an arch or anything so I can't speak on how it will work for that. But for someone who already has shaped and dark eyebrows this works perfect for filling them in.

This brow product is OK. . As someone who loves anastasia brow products.. tthis packaging for me is really flimsy and the brush is tiny and doesn't work that good .. but for what is .. a knock off of mac I would say it does the job.. fills in your brows .. they have enough colors that you can pick something close to your eyebrow color

This is my HG and first eyebrow product I own. I have been using this for 1 year 8 months and I still have quite much to go. I have the 'barely-there' eyebrow, which is why this product is perfect because it's pigmented.
But, the real reason that I love this product so much is because the staying power is great, like really great. I wore this to a K-Pop concert, I was standing in line under the sun (in summer, fyi) for 3 hours, and then another 3 hours for the concert and it RAINS (ikr) and I didn't bring any umbrella along with me. When I got home, my eyebrow is still there without any smudges. Of course it wasn't as perfect as the first few hours I wore them, but I shed blood, sweat and tears during the concert so I wasn't even expecting my brows to exist anymore. Therefore, this is my holy grail product.

Then why am I taking one lippie off? Because the brown shades are too red for me, especially the 'brown'. I prefer a cooler shade of brown. But it's not a big deal for me, so I keep using it. I don't mind the spoolie and the brush either, the brush works so-so for me, but I have better spoolie from Etude's drawing eyebrow.

Would I repurchase this? Yes, yes and yes. I wanted to try the taupe/ash shade, and if NYX would just sell the powders in single shade like eyeshadow, it would be perrrfect.

Pro: long lasting, pigmented, cheap
Cons: shades are too warm

Tips:
-If you're aiming the bold brow, you can use the wax (apply it with fingers to the brow hair). If not, just let it be.
-Even though it's long lasting, it is not a tint or tattoo, so it still smudge away if you wipe it. Therefore, if you're in my situation (raining, sweating, etc) don't touch your eyebrows.

The only reason this doesn't have a 5 star rating from me is because 1/ the wax makes my brows look wet and shiny, and it doesn't keep them in place/shape that well 2/ the angled brush that came with it is way too big, thick, hard/stiff and clumsy to fill in my brows and 3/I don't fancy the price too much, even when it's really high quality, there's not a lot of product (say compare to the BH cosmetics brow trio, which is my current HG, but I still love this slightly more because these colours are cooler).
Other than that, I like everything else about it. I was so afraid that the powders would be too dark or warm for me, but they ARE perfection: cool toned, even slightly ashy, exactly what I want (I'm cooler and paler than NC15, but not a complete C10/C15. I dyed my hair red, my eyebrows are naturally very faint, grey-ish and ashy). My brows are very thin and sparse, I use another much thinner angled brow brush and fill them in with either powder, and it looks like I actually have eyebrows. I can go from a natural look to a full on dramatic dark defined brows with this. The powders compliment each other wonderfully, I can use them both or alone, it's really very hard to notice.
I also use this as eyeshadows, and they works great like that too. They're matte, fine and very pigmented, stay on my oily lids (my brows area is oily too) really well, and other colours blend on top of them with no problem, even gel/cream eyeshadows.
I will repurchase this, I don't even want to bother to try the Micro Brow Pencil, which they say is a dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz. It's cheaper, more versatile (two powders that can be used for different purposes), plus packaging is cooler (I appreciate the engraving and different texture on the clear plastic lid for no reason other than aesthetics and feel, I like it so much more than a plain flat lid that can get scratched and look awful after a while). All in all, save for the wax, this eyebrow cake powder is a well loved and frequently used product for me.
***Update***: I gotta come back and give the wax more credits, i was too hard on it the first time around. It is now winter, the wax has harden quite a bit due to the cold, and thanks to that now it holds my eyebrows in shape wonderfully!! I have hit pan on the wax, since I use it every time I do my brows! Still loving the powders too, but now I wish they were a bit darker. I prefer darker brows now, and they aren't enough for me. I think if I could, I would repurchase this brow kit in a darker shade! Bumped the rating up to 5 stars, very well deserved!

I have pretty full brows just a few areas that need help. This helps my brows look amazing! The darkest color is the best. I didn't find any use for the wax as I like it more natural. Sometimes I use the lighter color as a quick contour. Love it!

Great pigmenting and I actually like the wax, too. The color goes on evenly and smoothly and stays on through the work day. I will say that I switched out the brush that came with it for a better quality one. The one it came with was way too stiff and didn't really hold any powder, but still a better value than Urban Decay's BrowBox, I think.

The powders in this kit is really nice and pigmented! I love that it includes a spoolie as well as an angled brush!!!! The only thing I don't really like about this kit is the wax. I wish the wax was a colored one (like ELF brow kit). The wax in this kit is a bit more tacky and I don't find it lasts very well on my brows. In fact, I could have done without the wax being in this kit.

All in all, i do like this kit and would repurchase since the brow powders are great!

Amazing! The colors I feel are lighter than what shows up, I have dark brown eye brows & the dark brown/brown is almost a little too light, so just be careful with it. But it's super easy to apply, the wax is incredible. Always impressed with nyx!
