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.

This stuff is amazing! The powder is super pigmented and lasts all day even without the brow wax. I don't use the brow wax; be careful of the brow wax melting in hot weather, it can get very messy in the plastic container. I don't use the brush it comes with because the brush isn't percise enough.

I bought the Brunette kit!
The Good: If I want my brows to look strong, defined, yet natural, I must must must use the wax. Hands down. The wax enhances the shadow I use, making it darker (which is good because I have black hair!) and last much longer than it would normally.

The Bad: I have black hair...soo...the powder wasn't cutting it for me. It was too red, and looked unnatural, plus it is a wee bit chalky, which I could deal with if it colour were a better match! Also, it came with tweezers and a brush which i tossed (clearly ;) )

Conclusion: For $4.99 CDN, just purchasing the product for the wax is fine by me! Will repurchase!

If one of the two or so colors they offer is a good match for you, these can't be beat.

The "brunette" version definitely does have red undertones - my hair is dark reddish-brown so it's perfect for me. I take an angle brush, tap it slightly on the powder, then tap it in the wax (I find this makes less mess and I don't end up accidentally getting too much color), then *gently* stroke over my brows. I then comb them out (up & over) with a spoolie brush, which shapes them and distributes the color / takes care of any excess. Looks perfectly natural and stays put. The wax is slightly odd in the case (it gets soft and slimey), but is fine on application.

The only downside is that the packaging is not the best (the slider has to be aligned just right and coaxed to close - I would prefer something that flipped open). But for the price, and how easy they are to find (which it doesn't seem there are many drugstore brow products), it's livable. I've gone through at least 3 or 4 of these and will continue to repurchase.

I use this powder every day, and it lasts forever! I don't feel I need to set my brows with wax every day, so I can't fairly weigh in on that. I have always felt pencils made me look harsh, so the dense brush and pigmented powder give just the right natural look for those who are wary of looking "overdone." The price is exactly right, and I hope they continue making this product, as no high end is worth the investment!

Horrible product. Made a complete mess and didn't do what it claimed to do. Not a good product!
