It is a well known fact that Lauren is to eyebrows what Katie Hopkins is to being a big grade A bitch – i.e. an expert. Over our time in the blogging world she’s reviewed many an eyebrow kit on Stylingo (Lauren I mean, not Katie H… that would be strange) so I feel a bit like I’m treading on her tiny hobbit toes here, but please bear with me and my idiot opinions.
Makeup Revolution are my new favey brand at the moment thanks to their super cheap and super fantastic lipsticks (which I reviewed here if you fancy a read) so I was excited to give their eyebrow kit a whirl too. The kit’s available in two shades: Light-Medium and Medium-Dark. Favouring a strong brow, I opted for the darker of the two. And here is what the little devil looks like inside…
Weeeeee, pretty isn’t it? Three eyebrow powders, one wax, a brush, some teeny tiny tweezers and a mirror in a compact, all for £2.50? You really can’t argue with that sort of value, unless you’re a div. The three shades of powder aren’t hugely different from each other, but this is actually useful considering it can be just a slight mis-match in shade that can make the difference between a good eyebrow filling job and a pure disaster. The powders are also meant to be blendable so you can find the best colour for you, but I found that the second colour along was a pretty good match for me as it is.
In terms of quality, the powders are brilliantly pigmented and apply easily. I initially took a stab at using the brush that came with the kit but it was just too little so I reverted to my normal eyebrow brush (the E7 by MUA) as the longer handle gave me more control.
I hadn’t used a wax on my eyebrows before as I don’t usually find I have much problem with them falling off my face anyway, so I can’t say I’ve noticed a big difference applying this over the top of the powder. But I think it does make the final look appear a bit more groomed and sleek.
Overall I think this compact is amazing value for money. At £2.5o it’s cheaper than it’s other bargain rivals, and it’s the perfect sturdy little kit to carry around with you. You can buy it either via the website or at Superdrug, and I highly recommend you do.
Another thumbs up from Makeup Revolution from me!
