I bought this in the brunette shade online at ulta and I gotta say that I was pretty unimpressed. Maybe I just had high expectations but for the price paid I could have gotten better results with the Nyx brow powder in brunette that I already had, not to mention for a fraction of the price. First of all, I found the shade to be just a tad too dark and despite using a quality brush (my anastasia beverly hills one) to lightly build it up with a steady hand and light strokes i found that it wore off after a few hours. Granted, I was wearing it out on a hot and humid summer day so maybe for the winter time it wouldn’t fade as quickly but regardless after paying for a higher end product I would expect a little more than that. Also, the packaging was just the worst. Super messy and not at all easy to control how much product would be picked up. Too much excess product needs to get tapped off back in the little pot and gently stroked on the back of your hand before you get just the right amount to apply which is also just as tedious. Maybe there is a better method to get a good use out of it but I personally don’t see how and am surprised by all of the rave reviews. If you ask me a brow powder should not be loose.
I mean If you just want a brow powder to go on top of a brow gel or pomade to help set and prolong it’s staying power than maybe for that purpose it would be decent..but for being used to fill in and build up on its own I don’t find it to be a good product at all. Especially if you have more sparse or thinner brows and need alot of build up I would say its a no go as I find this to just be more for defining.
I am a fan of many bare minerals products but this is just not going to be one of them. Definitely Will be returning it:/

I am naturally dirty blonde, and for most of my makeup life, I could never find a color to match my brows without looking too overwhelming for my complexion.

This powder is very blendable on the brows, and it is very easy to control. It sits very naturally, and it you mess up it is very easy to fix. I always use a clear brow mascara after applying this, and it never smears off or anything wild.

The main problem I usually have with brow products is the shade. For some reason, most taupes or lighter brown colors look very orange against my skin and eyebrows, but the brown shade I bought from Bare Escentuals was very deep and neutral.

Overall, it is a very good brow powder; easily blendable; easy to control the product; the amount of product you receive lasts a very long time.

This had been discontinued for quite awhile. I have spend tons of money trying to have natural looking, soft focus brows. Before it was phased out I had used it for 10 years. The little pot is 11.00 and it lasts a year to a year and a half....ahhhh so exite!!! I will still use my other products for strong eye looks bu for everyday, this is my go to! Happy days!

PS I meant to say this is back by popular demand!!!

Great brow product to use with minimal fuss, just need to be armed with a good firm slanted eye brush. This great little pot of powder has all day staying power and looks like natural brows if you feather/brush it on gradually.

Pale/Ash Blonde is a great colour match for those with blonde to light brown even mid-brown brows as the powder is not super light. Super small packaging , this looks like it will last for years, Iv'e had mine over a year and it's hardly gone down at all. The sifter holes could do with being a bit smaller but if you have this at home and store upright it wouldn't be a problem, maybe just a little messy when travelling.

I have the ELF and Milani Brow kits but like this one more and will definately be re-purchasing when its all gone in the very distant future - if they are still making it by then :)

I doubt I'll ever run out of this! I use the Dark blonde/med. Looks very natural and easy to apply. I use a Anastasia brush for application.
The only thing I do not like is the container. Place tape over all but 1 hole and it will work better and not have tons of powder dump out.

I love this brow powder. I have the Ash Blonde/Pale. I've tried many products to define my brows without them looking like clown brows. This is the only one which I've found to be natural looking. The pot lasts a long time. I've finally run low after 4 years.

Warning! While looking for Bare Escentuals eye brow powder, I found that most colors are running low or are completely out. I asked and found out that Bare Minerals is changing it completely in 2014. It's supposed to be a liquid or cream which dries to a powder. I bought two of the current version immediately! I don't want to run out when it's discontinued.

Best brow product on the market. The little container has lasted me three years of daily use and will likely last a couple more - a little bit goes a long way! I've found nothing better.

This is A.) the only brow product I have ever used, and B.) the only brow product I ever intend to use. I purchased a pot of the dark blonde / medium brown probably 5+ years ago? I religiously use it daily, and am only recently nearing using up this pot, as I spilled some in my sink a few weeks ago. I have thick, nicely shaped brows naturally, but using this with the angled brush makes me look much more put together. It goes on in less than 30 seconds. Lasts all day. No breakouts. Forgiving color, especially since I am a dark brunette with dark brows anyway. It looks totally natural and completes my look as much as mascara. Will definitely be purchasing again.

I absolutely love the eyebrow powder in "Brunette"!

Easy application. I use a small angled brush to apply it.

A little goes a long way and for $11 (US), it's definitely a great value!

This is the best brow product I've ever used. I chose the shade dark blonde/medium brown. It's the perfect shade without any red. It looks very natural on and it lasts all day without smudging. One little pot lasts a very long time
