Makeup Revolution Eyebrow Shaping Kit | Review

Makeup Revolution Eyebrow Kit 1It 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…

Makeup Revolution Eyebrow Kit 2Weeeeee, 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.

Makeup Revolution Eyebrow Kit SwatchIn 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.

Makeup Revolution Eyebrow Kit 3Overall 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!

GOSH Eyebrow Kit Review

Hi huns.

Instead of watching the CBB final like everyone else in the world, I’m lurking around in bed and blogging. Because that’s just how dedicated I am (plus, Liz annoys me and I have a duvet).

On my eternal bid to find the perfect eyebrow kit, I went and bought myself another one (and another one after that…). I’ve heard some good reviews about the GOSH Eyebrow Kit, so I thought I’d give it a whirl and so on and so forth. If you’re interested in checking out my other eyebrow product reviews, read my Sleek Brow Kit review, Barry M Brow Pen Review and MUA Eyebrow Kit review. I’ve also recently bought the Christian eyebrow powder and stencils (and re-bought the Sleek palette), so expect a review in the next week or so!



On that note, I think I need to go to eyebrow products anonymous.

Anywho, my eyebrow needs are slightly different to the average human so I think I need to make a little disclaimer. I have blonde brows that have no definition whatsoever. In a dark light, I resemble Voldemort. As a matter of fact, in broad daylight people often mistake me for the Dark Lord and shout “Expelliarmus” willy nilly. So, I tend to need a product that I can literally draw an eyebrow on, rather than simply fill in.


The only one that I’ve found do this properly as an eyebrow kit specifically is the Sleek palette. Eyebrow pencils always work fine, but where’s the fun in an eyebrow pencil I ask you? I’ve liked other products, but the brushes that come a long with them have been below par.

And unfortunately, that’s my one and only bug bear with the GOSH palette. And that’s not to say that the brush isn’t good quality, because it is. In fact, it’s one of the best quality palette brushes I’ve come across in a while. However, it’s slightly too thick for me to work with and I need something that gives a bit more precision. The brush also has one of those weird sponge brushes, which I’m sure no one has ever used ever.


Other than that, this is a fantastic little kit. The three powder shades are workable for most different complexions and their pigmentation is good. They’re also really buildable, so you can layer on to achieve however dark you want your brows. The gel/wax is also good for sweeping in any strays, so no complaints there. I still find it a bit weird how one kit has 3 different shades (sensible? I think not), but it has actually proved quite useful since dying my hair ginger and my dark brown eyebrow products make me look like a silly Paloma Faith.


In terms of staying power, this bad boy has the same amount as Beyonce and Jay Z’s beautiful relationship (i.e. loads). There were no eyebrows-wandering-around-my-face incidents and they still looked excellent at the end of a busy day drinking tea and moaning about the state of society at the office. Top marks GOSH.

You can buy this eyebrow kit for £8.49 and it comes with a nice little mirror, meaning you can alarm yourself throughout the day by looking at your face and/or great eyebrows.

I’m really looking forward to trying some more GOSH products, especially if they’re all as fabby and fantastic as this magician’s pot.
