I love this kit because of the huge impact it can make to my eyebrows. It is true that you don't realize how much of a difference it can make until you use it. Though my brows are naturally dark, I still have spots where I need fill-in. This kit makes my brows appear naturally enhanced, which I love. The brush is perfect for the powder application as well.

After using this product, I will never go back to using an eyeliner pencil for my brows ever again.

Love this! I've never really delved into the eyebrow makeup helm because I could find products I like. The pencils were too gookey and looked like grandma eyebrows...but I love this stuff. Use it religiously. easy to use, fool proof.

This serves as an example of one of those products that you need, but you don't realize how much until you use it. It's an essential part of my makeup routine now, just because of how well it fills out my brows. It looks completely natural, something I was so worried about before I bought this. I am completely satisfied, and there is so much in this container that it will be a while before I even have to repurchase.
I definitely recommend!

I purchased this kit at a BE boutique, and it's wonderful. I got the Dark Blonde/Medium Brown color, which is a perfect match for me, and it's fantastic (see my separate review!). The gel is great, as it keeps my unruly brows in place and doesn't flake, and the BE brush is nicely angled for precise application. I said yes to repurchasing, but I really wouldn't, as I only need one kit. :-) I will replace each component individually as needed though!

I got this in the dark blonde to medium brown shade, and I should've bought it sooner! I love this. I was previously using Brow Fantasy in brunette, but found that to be a tad too red for my liking. This powder is a true light brown and looks so natural. The included brush makes application easy and the clear brow mascara works great to keep strays in place all day. It's pricey, but the minerals will last a very long time. I'll repurchase if I ever run out.

I gave this 4 lippies because of the quality, but I wouldn't purchase it again. I think the price is to high for what you are receiving. I like this product, but it may be a little to dark for my brows. I didn't think the color looked natural on my eyebrows. Although, I will have this for years because you do get a lot of shadow in the container. I am still looking for the best product for brows. Overall, I didn't dislike product, I just wasn't that impressed.

i really love this product, though i dislike bare escentuals' foundation powders. i tried this on a whim since it was on display at Sephora with a tester as i've always had a hard time with my brows, especially since they are slightly thin from over-plucking.
but when i tried this powder and filled in my brows, i was happy with how natural they looked. also, this stuff lasts forever; my powder pot is still full even after years of ownership and several major spills. for application, all i do is shake the closed container and then unscrew the cap and use the powder attached to the underside of the lid. however, it is easy to apply too much of this and get an overdone brow (personally not my cup of tea)
I find the price a touch expensive, but it is a set of brow gel, powder and brush so it's not too terrible.

To be honest...I dont think I could live with out this product. I too was one of those who always had the worse eyebrows due to over plucking/waxing, and filled in my eyebrows with pencil!!! WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?! And now I get so many compliments on my eyebrows its ridiculous!!! Who would of thought?!!?!
And dont worry about the price tag, yes it does seem like a lot of money at first, but get this: I've been using the same pot for over a year, has even spilt it a couple of times (include one huge spill!!), and I have yet to put a DENT in the amount of product you get!!
I use the brunette shade, I have solid black hair and medium/light skin and it matches perfectly. With this stuff you can add more or less to intesify the impact of color.
I do wish this came with a sifter, hopefully BE will change that soon if they have not already. Like I said my pot is over a year old.

This is one of those products you don't think you need until you get it, then you realize you can't go without it! Filling in your brows makes such a difference! Your whole face looks better plus your makeup does too!!! The brush is wonderful, the bristles are firm and give you excellent control. You don't need a lot of powder. Very easy to use. Do it one time and you are pretty much an expert!!!

I bought this in Auburn and I have to saw that it is fantastic! At frist I was unsure about getting it because of the price, but then I mentally broke down the cost of the powder, gel, and brush, and decided this was cheaper. I never really paid much attention to my brows other than tweezing, so I had a lot of ground to make up. The auburn color matches wonderfully with my hair which I have been dying varies shades of auburn for about fiveplus years now. I think the best part, aside from the color, is the amount of product you get. You really only need a microscopic amount of powder from the lid and I don't need to re-dip the mascara wand into the tube--once I pull it out, it is enough for both brows. Overall, this is an awesome product, definately worth the money I spent on it!

I love this kit. My brows have taken a beating over the years. Overplucking/waxing is the main culprit. They are thin---very thin but have a great shape. The lady who does my brows actually suggested that I get brows 'tattood' on. In her culture the tattooing of eyebrows is common. However, that is not the route I wish to take---it isn't that serious to me. I thought it would be best if I just learned how to properly fill my brows in. I use this kit in conjunction with Sephoras eyebrow stencils. I just put the stencil in place and then I fill in the space with the powder....PERFECTION. The color is so natural..I use the brunette (I'm African American with dark brown/black hair). This shade is perfectly natural on me. It does not look drawn in like pencils. It isn't messy like other wax products...althought I do love Smashboxes kit....I'll stick with BE because all of my products are BE. I don't know why I didn't try their brow kit sooner! This is a new staple for me!

The color is perfectly natural, never too harsh. I prefer powder SOOO much over pencil, which in my opinion hardly ever looks natural. When applied with the included brush, no one could tell that you colored your brows in; it really looks very natural and enhances brows beautifully. The product never breaks me out or irritates my sensitive, acne prone skin, which is a definite bonus for me. I've been using this for years, and the little jar seriously lasts forever (if you don't knock it over, of course) and the application really lasts all day long, even on my oily skin. The brush is incredible and has lasted 3 years and still doesn't need to be replaced. It's also the perfect thickness and slant for brows. The gel is works good, too, but I prefer the clear Maybelline Great Lash mascara over it. I really love this product, definitely my HG brow brush and powder.
UPDATE 8/1/08: I knocked the jar over and lost ALL of the product, so I've been using a brown matte Maybellline eyeshadow (Nutmeg) out of sheer laziness instead. I still greatly prefer the BE brow powder to it, though!

I canít go a day (and sometimes a night if I have gone a little crazy with the tweezers) without this product. It has a complete natural look when applied. The brush in the kit makes application so easy and the clear brow gel sets in everything beautiful. Since this product is in powder form I am able to custom blend my shades. Great for when I get the whim to change hair colors.

I am very pleased with this... I have the kit in Pale/Ash Blonde. My brows have a good natural shape but they are almost invisible blonde. I start with the Brow Gel and then apply the powder over it so it sticks to the brow gel. Looks great! The Pale/Ash Blonde is a very natural color and suits my pale face; I might try mixing in a little of the auburn color for something a little more dramatic. Lasts all day long; I still have great brows at bedtime. The brush that comes with the kit is very nice, as well. Will definitely repurchase both the brow gel and the brow color.

Once you learn to use this properly, it's a GREAT brow product! The kit comes with a angled brush, brow gel, and the most perfect, natural, dark brown brow powder. Mmmmm! Amaaaaaazing. It really does look like tiny hairs. Per the directions, apply the gel first--sweeping brows into place. Dip the brush in the powder, swirl in lid, and tap on the side. Then lightly apply to brow from arch outward. Another light sweep with gel sets it all invisibly. Very nice. I can see the powder lasting forever. If you're an "eyebrow person" you'll love this product.

Eyebrow powder in Brunnette went on way to dark, even though I am a true Brunnette, and I couldn't get the whole kit to work no matter how many times I tried!

I've always been curious about Bare Escentuals. I'm currently revamping my makeup bag. I decided to start with this product. The aesthetic purpose of brows is most often overlooked. Brows are the frame of the face. What makes Bare Escentuals brow different from other brow kits? It'll truly last a century if you carefully apply it and avoid the clumsiness of knocking it over. It looks natural, as if I had been born with these brows. I used to use MAC's brow brush and brow shadow, but I've completely converted to Bare Escentuals because of its incredible staying power. I haven't had any fading on the edges of my brows. I completely recommend this kit. To get the most out of your brow investment, it works well with Benefit High Brow pencil which gives the convincing illusion of lifting the brow when applied to the brow bone.

I really like this stuff.I have it in dark blonde/med brown.I'll start with the negative,the usual mess of the loose minerals,which is not a big deal,cause the product itself is very good,the brush it comes with is not the best,i use my smashbox brow brush,gives me a better result.The powder is very long lasting,even without the the brow gel (i forgot to put it on one day),with the gel it is really,really long lasting.The shade is awesome,it's pretty much a universal shade to me.I think that little pot will last me forever,the price is right,and very easy to find

I've been using this everyday for over a year. This is my all time favorite brow treatment ever. My HG for brows. I over plucked for too many years and then I had perm cosmetics done and they ended up being too light because I made the woman promise they wouldn't be too dark. As a result, my brows need help from a nice brow filler so they don't disappear on my face and to balance the color and shape. This is awesome. A few seconds for each brow to apply in the morning and it lasts all day without looking too done. I use the tiniest amount for each brow and my pot is still almost full after a year. I don't think I will ever run out of this. I use the Auburn as I have darn brown hair but I get reddish highlights in the summer months and it suits me perfectly. Not too red, not too brown. Looks natural on my face.
