As you probably know, I have been using my Sleek Brow Kit in Dark (£7.99) ever since I got it, to tame and fill in my unruly brows. I usually get them waxed once a month, with plucking in between, but have been recently considering threading, which is cheaper and apparently better. Can anyone share their experience?
I very luckily received a new brow kit to try, and have found that I really like it. The Fashionista StyleBrows Kit (£7)* gives me a more subtle finish than my Sleek Kit. There are a few differences, though.
First of all, and most noticeably, the Sleek Kit comes with a dark coloured wax and brow powder. The Fashionista Kit comes with three powders and a clear wax. The powders alone are not too heavily pigmented and can be mixed together to create a 'custom shade'. Here are the three shades swatched:
I followed the packet instructions and applied my brow powder first. I used a mix of the two darkest shades to fill in my brows, and the lightest shade as a matte highlight under the brow. Then, using the other side of the dual applicator, I applied a wax to 'lock' my brows in place.
As you can see, my brows look a little darker, more filled in and in place. I love my Sleek Kit for it's ability to give a strong brow (never a bad thing in my book) but this palette is perfect for days when I want my brows to look well kept but natural. I am still thinking about getting threaded, but I love this palette for it's versatility and the fact that my eyebrows don't budge using the wax.
Also, if you want more pigmentation, it is suggested that you mix the wax and powder together. However, I feel like I'll use my Sleek palette for bold brows, and this for defined, yet natural looking brows.
What do you think?
