a bow to the brow




Sleek Makeup has created the perfect compact to answer the cries of many an unruly brow. Bold, furry brows are big this season and impeccably defined brows are crowning flawless faces everywhere down the AW11 catwalks. I love statement brows, I think they look fabulous and frame the eye beautifully, but sadly due to a spell of over-exuberant plucking, circa 2001, I have been left with quite sparse brows. I usually use mac eyebrow pencil in spiked and then comb them through with mac eyebrow gel, but was keen to give this new brow kit a go.
As you lift the lid you are greeted by a shaping wax and setting powder, accompanied by a pair of diddy mini tweezers, an angle brush and a blending brush. The kit comes in two shades; light and dark. I was sent the light one to trial, and it suited my eyebrows excellently as you can see below.

To achieve my defined brows:
1/ Tidy up the brows and tweezer any loose hairs away. Comb them through with a brow brush to prep them for application.
2/ Apply the shaping wax with the angled brush. This brush is great in creating the sharp, clean edges to your brow. Run the brush through your brow, following its natural shape.
3/ Apply the setting powder with the blending brush, sweeping through your eyebrow and filling in any gaps. This will help create a fuller, shapely brow.

I can't really say anything bad about this product; it does exactly what it sets out to do and is so easy to use with the brushes included. I love that everything you need is in one place and it is a definite makeup bag essential.

Sleek Makeup launch their brow kit (£7.99) on 26th October 2011 and it will be available online and in Superdrug stores.

Is this something that gets your eyebrows raising?
Do you like to boast a big brow?

I like your brows in both pictures, but I guess more defined with the make-up. x

I love defined brows. Its amazing how much filled in eyebrows can change someones face. Would love to try this kit!

Irene Hua said...

Amy said...

Ooh this looks great - a nice budget alternative to the hd brows kit. I have to fill in my brows thanks to an over-enthusiastic threader so I will definitely be popping to superdrug next week to pick up one of these. Thanks for sharing! x

You are such a whizz at brow shaping Milly! I love the soft squared shape at the front of brows atm, wish I could do mine as quickly as yours. Currently sticking to my HD brows kit but definitely shall be investing in this afterwards (:

I've been experimenting with this since I got the HD brows kit in with my Glossybox and whilst I love the way my brows look with this on, I feel like it just doesn't suit me - maybe because I've got light blonde hair - and I think people can see my eyebrows coming before I do! :-)

Does anyone know how this compares to Benefit Browzings?!

Kelly said...

This is a great review on the kit Milly, your brows look great!!
I've been using a No17 pencil but this looks much softer.

I naturally have very strong brows and I never over plucked them, so I guess I'm very trendy now. :P I really don't think that thin brows would suit my face, so I just kept them close to their natural form. And thank you for this review, I think I will get this when it's released, I like the concept of having it all in one.
