I bought this to have a cheap product to throw in my travel makeup bag. For that purpose, it truly fills the bill. The powder is packaged as a kit, including the pan of brow powder alongside a pan of brow wax, a small (but useless) pair of tweezers, and a brush to apply the powder/wax. The container is also housed in a plastic case that is also handy for travel. The powder is soft and smooth, and on par with more expensive brow powders I have, including the super expensive Anastasia powder. The wax included in the same packaging is also convenient to have for travel, and the included brush is surprisingly useful when you don't want to bring a separate brow brush on travel. For my purposes, this is perfect, and I will most certainly repurchase to keep in my travel kit. My biggest gripe with this is that it only comes in one color. Also, the packaging is somewhat cheap and would probably fall apart quickly if you didn't also keep the it in the included plastic case. That said, it certainly gets the job done, and it is dirt cheap! Worth a try on that basis.

I had been using this product for months but I just never really got the hang of the powder and wax thing. The brush got really stiff after being dipped in the wax so much. I found this product to be kinda messy. The packing is not really good. It would get the job done, but I have to say it wasn't my fave product. Ive since moved to the Milani brow kit and loving it.

Lasted all day for me. My HG for brows. I have a kit called Brunette, but are there lighter shades available? I didn't see other shades of "Browser" on the NYC website.

I would give this a 4.5 if possible.
I expected not to like this, because I mistakenly purchased this thinking this was the WnW one everyone raves about on here. I realized I had bought NYC and then looked up the reviews, only to read pretty rotten ones. I tried it once and left it to be.
Now I use it every day, and will probably need to repurchase soon. I ran out of my normal powder so I had to use this (I purchased the dark brown colour, although I don't remember there being any other options).
It is a rich brown, with no strange red undertones. Very dark and pigmented. I would not suggest to anyone with medium to light coloured hair at all.
It lasts all day. I really fill in my eyebrows (I have dyed dark hair and am naturally blonde so they're very light, and super sparse from a firework incident). This doesn't fade at all.
There are a few cons, but nothing major. The wax mine came with is very soft and does nothing to hold brow hairs in place, but I prefer to use hairspray anyways.
The powder isn't very compressed so beware, you can load up your brush easily without knowing it.
And the packaging, tweezers and brush are just garbage. But I wasn't expecting anything great from them, and I'm sure no one is. It only cost me $4CDN, which is peanuts. I use an angled eyeliner brush, which works very well.
I love this, will repurchase when necessary. Definitely wowed me.

Omg I love this! I don't remember how much it cost but it was under 3 CAD I think lol. It has cute tweezers, a mini angled brush(I don't use), a powder, and a wax (great for traveling)...it's packaging I like because it's super small and it slides like awesomely lol... I don't use the powder, because my brows might be black, but the kit I got has dark powder which is good as an eyeshadow, but for my brows? Not so much. I use it all though. I love it, and I will get it in a lighter color.

I loved using this product back when I was getting my brows waxed more often.
First off, I found that the wax was great for keeping small hairs in place and provided a fantastic base for the powder in this set. Speaking of the powder, it also matched my hair color (light blonde, so my brows needed to be just a touch darker) perfectly. The tiny tweezers were a great compliment in order to maintain my brows between waxing. Easy to use and control - plus angled just right.
Someone else mentioned that they haven't been able to find the blonde shade (taupe) recently - I haven't either and think they have discontinued it. However, I've moved on to brow stencils with light brown powder, so I honestly haven't had a great need for this kit. With that being said, the NYC Browser kit is a great buy - so inexpensive and works great!

Love this product. I have been using this for about 5 years now. No way will i change it for another brand, plus is super cheap. I run through about 3 of this a year or so...I use it every single day in the dark brown. Love it.

I definitely prefer this product over brow pencils--it looks more natural and is super easy to apply. I also really like getting the tiny tweezers. I would prefer if it flipped open and had a mirror. Great quality for the price!

I gave this a 3 despite it being an awesome product because they seem to have gotten rid of every color except brunette. erg. I loved the taupe/blonde shade they had last year, but brunette is the only shade listed on the website, so the other colors must have been dc'ed. :( It lasts a long time and the blonde one was perfect for me. The brunette is much too dark for a blonde unless you want the brown brow with blonde hair look. The product also lasts a long time and the wax keeps everything in place. It used to be so awesome.

Okay product but I don't think it's right for me with my dark Asian hair. The product comes with a brow wax and shadow colour and tweezers. I got the Brunette which is more suited for someone with dark brown hair with reddish highlights versus black hair (like myself). The brow shadow has tints of red in it which don't look natural on me.
