ELF Studio Eye Brow Kit–
I have found my “holy grail” (when I say that this eye brow product is my “holy grail”, that means that out of all the brow products I have tried, I consider this to be the best, and I will purchase this again and again as I use it up.) eye brow product. And guess what? It’s only $3.
- Available at eyeslipsface.com, Target stores, K-Mart, and Walmart
- $3.00 (unless you catch a sale… e.l.f. is ALWAYS having sales, so I suggest you wait, so you can it for $1.50! Not that it isn’t worth the $3.00… ;)
- Comes in 4 shades: Ash, Light, Medium, and Dark (I have it in Dark)
- Comes with one powder, a wax, and a tiny double-ended brush
Here’s what e.l.f. says about their product,
Create brows that are fuller, thicker, and more defined! The pigmented wax defines and shapes brows and the color complementing setting powder keeps them looking arched and perfected. The doubled sided taklon brush has one side to help arch your brows while the other side aids in filling them in. This duo provides lasting color definition for a naturally beautiful look.
As I said before, this little kit includes both a powder and a wax.
This product is long wearing (haven’t had any trouble of it wearing off/fading during the day), easy to apply, and is build-able. Sometimes, I want a lighter look on my brows, so I can apply this lightly. Other times, if I’m doing a dramatic eye look or I’m going out at night, I want a bolder, darker brow, which I can accomplish simply by layering the product.
The powder is there to “set” the wax. It really helps smooth out and perfect the brows… it fills in anywhere that you may have missed with the wax.
I suppose swatches for a brow product may not be as vital as a lipstick or eye shadow, but I really wanted you to see how pigmented the product is. The wax is thick and creamy, and the powder is nice and smooth, and so easy to blend.
Now, let’s check out this tiny little brush. I know we are often tempted to toss the cheap little applicators that come with kits and palettes (sponge tipped applicators and terrible scratchy brushes), but please don’t toss this one until you try it! Surprisingly, I find this little synthetic brush to be really nice! I use it every time I use this product… and I haven’t tried applying it with anything else. There is just no need.
I use the little angled side to brush the wax through my brows, and “draw in” little hairs… then, I take the other side, and set the wax with the powder. Simple as that!
So there you have it, my before and after photos. I realize that my brows are pretty thick and full to begin with. I use this brow kit to fill in a couple of bare spots that I have, as well as “draw in” some hairs in the inner part, where they begin. I think that they start a little too far apart, so I just like to add a little more right there. I’ve always been a big fan of fuller brows. They are more natural, and the fuller the brows, the more youthful you look. I will continue to have full brows, even if/when (oh please no) thin brows are on trend.
Have you ever noticed that all of the Disney princesses have fuller brows? It’s the evil queen/witch/etc. that tends to have super skinny, super arched brows. Just saying… who doesn’t want to look like a princess rather than a witch? ;)
Overall, I would totally recommend this product. If you’re unsure about your color, of if this will work for you, maybe pick it up at Target. Just save your receipt and return it if you’re not a fan. No problem! ;)
What is your favorite brow product? How do you feel about the thick/thin brow debate?
