New to Brows: L'oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit

Now I must admit, I'm not sure how new the L'oreal Brow Artist Genius Kits (£9.99) are, but I spotted them recently and was very intrigued. 

If there's one thing the drugstore is missing, it's good brow products. Sure, I have my W7 Brow Bar which I love, but it's not easy to track down. The L'oreal Brow Kit comes in two shades, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark. I picked up the shade Medium to Dark but I have a feeling I'll also be getting the lighter shade for my kit. 

The kit comes with a powder, a coloured wax, mini tweezers and an angled brush with a spoolie. The compact also has a mirror. The powder is ashy and cool toned which is something I always look for in a brow product. The texture isn't as creamy as I'd like it to be, but I actually think that works in its favour. It's lasts a long time and if you make any mistakes, it's easy to correct.

The coloured wax is the part I'm a bit unsure about. I just don't think it makes much of a difference. You're supposed to use the wax first then fill in the brows with the powder. I honestly don't think the wax did anything. It didn't add much colour and it doesn't make the hairs stay in place. It's a nice texture, easy to blend and not sticky, but a bit redundant in my opinion. The colour is slightly less cool compared to the powder but it's not really warm. It sits somewhere in the middle. 

I haven't used the tweezers as I adore my Tweezerman ones but the angled brush with the spoolie is actually quite good. I love that they provide a spooile. 

Despite its few downfalls, I really like this brow kit. The shades are nice and ashy and completely matte. L'oreal did a really good job with the formula and this is definitely one of the better options for brows at the drugstore. 

Have you tried this kit? What did you think?

Thanks for reading,
