Last week, I met up with eyebrow guru Anastasia Soare, and ever since then, I've been paying extra special attention to the brow area — or lack thereof. More tips from Anastasia to come, but in the meantime, after passing by this Revlon Brow Specialist Kit ($9) at Walgreens over the weekend, I couldn't resist. My makeup area at home is getting a little cluttered these days, so anything that is compact, compartmentalized, and brow-related captures my attention. To see what I thought of this mini-kit, just read more.
At $9, this set is quite the steal. It includes a brownish pencil, three stencils, a pair of angled tweezers, clear brow gel, and a nylon case with separate spaces designated for each tool. While the set isn't perfect, as the pencil is perhaps just a tad too warm for the brow area and too dark for lighter-haired women, all in all, I was pleased with the purchase. And although the stencils are sturdy, pliable, and easy to work with, I'd like to see a few more options included to cover a wider variety of shapes. More and more, I am becoming a huge advocate of brow gels, and this one did the trick by blending out the pencil marks without a sticky or clumpy finish. If you're looking for the crème de la crème of eyebrow kits, I suggest checking out the Anastasia line, but if you are looking for a quick-fix approach, Revlon's kit is convenient for the non-fussy crowd.
