It has only been recently that I've really started doing anything major with my eyebrows. To be honest, they scare me a bit... one small error and you look awful! So far I've stuck to occasional tweezing and this last year or so I've been filling them out properly with a brow kit. I'm always on the lookout for a nice, affordable brow kit that will do the job right so the Beautiful Brow Kit from Kiss looked great for myself.
Brow kits = another beauty item that scares the crap out of me. Why do you need wax?! Why are there so many brow shades?! Why are none of them the same as my eyebrows?! Well, it's no where near as scary as it looks and if I can do it then anyone can. Kiss have even given you step by step instructions on how to achieve the perfect brow with this kit.
I like that this brow kit comes with lots of tools. Not only do you get your brow powder and wax quad, but you get eyebrow stencils to make sure your brows are the exact shape you want them. There are four shapes: Natural, Dramatic, Delicate, and Sexy. They are all quite natural looking which is good but have enough variety in them you can get the shape you're after.
Not only do you get the stencils, but you also get a tiny tiny razor. Yup. Now, I was pretty horrified when I first saw this because my general rule is get someone else, someone who is trained, to shape your eyebrows for you (we've all seen the disasters that happen when you tweeze your own brows) so I wanted to avoid this razor at all costs. It is there to get rid of any hairs that are outside of the desired shape and to be honest I'd avoid using heavily if you're not an experienced brow shaper. Reason being is that this baby is sharp AF and you will shave your entire brow off if you're not careful. Having said that, it is super handy to get rid of that awkwardly thin hair that is too fine to tweeze so it is a useful tool.
The brow quad itself is good quality for the price you pay. The powders seem more of a natural shade than other brow powders I have seen. Even though there were only two shades, I didn't struggle to get the right shade for my brows which is something I usually have a problem with in other kits I've used. The wax, which is used to tame any stray hairs and 'set' the powder, is very soft and you can go a little overboard with it. A little bit of product goes a long way in this case - it's a great wax so don't over do it! It kept my hairs in place all day long though so it got a thumbs up from me. The highlight isn't very pigmented but it's nice enough and you can notice it's on. The little brush and sponge applicator is awful - use make up brushes if you've got them!
I apologise that I haven't had my brows waxed in a while, they are a *bit* of a mess, but I wanted to include this before and after photo. They look pretty good to me and aren't glaringly obvious that I've filled them in. Great stuff!
I'm super impressed with the Kiss Beautiful Brow Kit. Not only is it easy to use, but your brows stay filled in all day long and look natural. It's a nice touch that you get every tool you need to get the perfect brow and they've not just sold you some brow powders and left you to get on with it. It makes a difference to those of us who get brow shaping nerves! I'm glad I tried this palette and I would repurchase - I think I'll stay away from the razor though and leave the hair removal to the experts ;)
