Sleek | Brow Kit in 'Extra Dark' Review & Swatches


Hey Lovelies 





Wax on the left & Powder on the right


You may have seen this pop up in my favourite's post last week (here), I’ve been using this for a couple of months so I feel like I can give a nice fair review on this now.

Before I got this I had always used the Rimmel brow pencil in extra dark, My hair is actually not that dark but if I go for a lighter colour it always looks orangey on me and unnatural. Does anyone else find that?

With this kit you get a nice thickish wax to set them naughty eyebrows, which don’t do as they’re told, and also a powder to set the wax.
These swatches are super heavy which is why they look so dark but you can also get a nice natural finish if you use a lighter hand which is what i opt for.

I don’t use the powder all that much, I use the tiniest bit to settle the wax to help it last that little bit longer but i prefer the wax to the powder. So does it last all day? Well honestly - no not really, a good several hours I’d say if you don’t touch or smudge it.

You get two little brushes and the cutest pair of tweezers which aren’t actually that bad. The brushes are ok, they are usable but they are just so tiny it’s hard to get a good grip on them.

This is really good stuff, I use it most days (some days I’m just a lazy bum) and it hasn't made a dent at all yet so I see it lasting for absolutely ages - years? decades? This is so much better than a brow pencil its gives a nice finish whether it's natural or bold.

I haven’t tried the elf brow kit or the benefit browzings but this one is in the middle at £7.99 and I’m happy with it and would repurchase :)

What do you use on you eyebrows?

  4. The colors come out beautifully strong, I like that. I also find with lighter pencils, it can turn orange :/ I've tried benefit's browzings and IMO it isn't worth the price tag. You can get much cheaper alternatives like this one or MUA's Pro Brow kit.

    Anyway, I'm your newest follower! :D I found you through Tales of a Pale Face <3

  9. In the winter I use a matte brown eye shadow to fill in my brows but since it's been going into warmer weather here I just use a clear brow gel and I'm all good :D
