A week or so ago I blogged about the Fashionista Blush/Eyeshadow custom quads and today I’m showing you another palette from the brand but this time it’s for your brows. I’ve had a lot of brow products in my time (potential follow up post?) and universal palettes are pretty difficult to get right. Something like this will be great if you have mid to dark brunette hair but anything lighter and you’ll be struggling. My brows are sparse and mousey so they lend themselves pretty well to the various shades I dye my hair but when I’m blonde I find it a real struggle to find a product that will define without leaving me looking un-natural. They’re always too warm or too dark and unfortunately that is the case with this kit, it would be perfect if I still had chocolate locks but as I don’t it will be relegated to my stash of products I can’t use while I’m on the lighter side. Rest assured I’ll get some use out of it eventually (you know me and my hair dye additiction) but for now it’s a bit of disappointment.
What I do like about this is that not only do you get 3 brow powders, you have a wax to set and mix, a mini angled brush (not ideal for daily use but great for travel) and tweezers! – an often forgotten addition that I for one am always pleased to see included. You get a nice big mirror and the palette itself is quite compact so given that you have the little utensils It would make a nice handbag kit.
I recently purchased a couple of blonde pencils I’m quite happy with but am yet to find a generic universal palette that works for cool toned light blondes, if you know of one please leave a comment ’cause I’m on a bit of a mission!
