The main thing I like about this product is the brow powder...I purchased in Brunette but have auburn hair, as there was no other option. Luckily the powder is sheer and lighter in color than it appears in the package- actually looks pretty natural on me. As for the wax, its a bit too soft and greasy. It doesnt provide much hold for me and seems to migrate/melt after several hours- so I usually just mix the teensiest dab with the brow powder on the brush at the same time, to prevent overload. Then I still go over my brows with a fluffy brush of translucent powder to set. As for the packaging, its very cheap, and looks the part. I threw the ridiculously useless baby tweezers away, and the brush isnt much better, although is convenient b/c it fits right in the little case. I usually stick with my trusty brow pencil, but sometimes for a less defined look I use this powder/wax method. This is one of the cheapest beauty products I own, but it actually does a decent job. Im a little confused about the rave reviews, its an okay product but definetly nothing amazing. Maybe others are just better at maximizing Browser's benefits? Try it, because its so cheap (like less than $3) so even if you dont like it, its no real loss. I wont be buying again because I will probably never use it all up.

I purchased this in the blonde shade for my neutral blonde eyebrows. The consistency of the powder was smooth and pigmented, and the contained brush was surprisingly useful. The wax was decent but I found that the powder held well without it. However, the blonde showed up way too orange, much more suited for a strawberry blonde or even redhead in my opinion. I did find it useful when I briefly dyed my hair red, but other than that, it was not a product I was satisfied with.

I have this in blonde - the wax doesn't work for me as well as for some, but the color is just right, and there's a lot for the ridiculously good price. Nice buildable coverage. I'll definitely be buying again.

This product has completely replaced my brown shadow (used as a brow powder) and brow mascara. The wax holds so much better than any brow gel that I have tried. I use my MAC #266 brush to apply the powder, then use a no-name angled brush to stroke on the wax over my hairs (I use a clean mascara brush to brush my hairs up and outward). It is a very stellar product and belongs in the category of Drugstore Superstars.

I have NYC's Browser kit in Brunette. I really like it! My brows look great. I wish the wax was a little stiffer, and the brush it comes with is completely useless. The tiny tweezers now live in my car for touch-ups at stop lights (natural light is a great thing).
Bottom line: A decent brow kit for $3? You can't beat that.

I have this in 'Brunette'. I find it too red/orange to use. I could use it in a pinch though. If you are looking for a cheap brown powder with good staying power then try this before forking out lots of $$ on other ones. I didn't like the wax much. The mini tweezers worked pretty well! The brush was alright. It is not horrible by any means, I just need a darker, ashier brown.

I have had this browser kit in brunette for the longest time (for 2-3 years) and I still have not ran out of it. Compared to the Anastasia Brow Express in Brunette, NYC's brunette powder is has a red tint to it. With a light hand and short strokes (I use Anatasia's eyebrow brush that comes with the Brow Express), this kit gives me natural coverage for my dark brown (sometimes reddish brown) hair. The wax doesn't perform as well as Anastasia's but it works just fine. I find that it's best to put a little wax on the eyebrows first, brush it with an eyebrow comb or a mascara wand, apply the powder, and then re-brush the brow for definition and direction. Once this runs out, I will definitely buy it again!

I bought this because of the good reviews on here. also because i have benefits brow product also and i wanted something to fall back on in case i ran out. i didnt like this at all. the wax wasnt as 'stiff' as id like it to be. and combining the powder and wax did nothing as well. i probably just used too much or something or didnt get the hang of it. but i wouldnt reccommend this. if you want something like this and dont mind spending a little more, id stick with benefit.
