My Eyebrow Routine

My eyebrows are a part of my daily makeup routine that I can’t go without. Although I have dark hair almost everywhere else on my body (sorry if that is totally TMI!), my eyebrows are quite sparse and always need filling in. I have tried lots of different products, from pencils to mousses to gels, but I think I have found a new dream brow product in the B. Defined Eyebrow kit in Light.

The lovely people over at Product Testing UK very kindly sent me this amazing eyebrow kit to review after I joined their beauty blogger team. If you are a blogger who loves trying out new products, you can also become a beauty product tester for this fantastic company and I can thoroughly recommend them as a great company to work with! Although I have been sent this product to review, I will always give you my 100% honest opinion on everything that I write about on this blog.

So what is so great about this drugstore eyebrow kit then? Let me start by telling you a little bit about B. Makeup as it wasn’t a brand that I was aware of before I got sent this product. The brand specialises in vegan makeup that is premium yet affordable and it is exclusive to Superdrug. I had never tried vegan makeup before and I was intrigued to find out if it lived up to its premium and long lasting claims.

Their eyebrow kit includes two powders, a dark brown with a warm undertone and a pale taupe colour with a grey undertone. I personally used a bit of trial and error and mixed the two shades to find my perfect brow shade that matches my hair exactly. Unless you have black hair, I would purchase the light shade of this kit as you can make a variety of colours from deep brown to ashy blonde with the light powders. The kit also includes a pretty shimmery highlighter that I don’t use on my brow area but makes a great cheek highlight and a brow wax that really locks the powders in place. The only part of the kit that I don’t use is the small angled brush/spoolie that comes with the kit as I just find it a little too fiddly to use and I prefer to use my own angled eyebrow brush (this one from eBay) to apply the powders.

Using powders to fill in my brows gives a much more natural look than a pencil which I love and I was amazed that the powders really do last all day when set in place with the wax. I can also get great precision when using a thin angled brush and brow powders which means that I can get my brows exactly the shape that I want them. A few weeks ago I found this great article on which rules to follow to shape your eyebrows which I have been following and since then I have been receiving a lot of compliments on my brows!

All in all the B. Defined Eyebrow Kit is a steal at £9.99 as my brows have never looked better and I imagine I will get hundreds of uses out of the powders before they run out. I can’t believe that I have never tried brow powders before but B. Makeup has definitely converted me! Have you tried this kit out before? If not, what do you use on your brows? I would love to find out!
