This is the conversation that occured a few weeks ago when I bought the Clarins Eyebrow Kit at Boots.
“Hi I’d like buy your Eyebrow Kit.”
“The Eyebrow Kit”
“Oh. That’s what I thought you said.”
“Yeah but no one every asks for it so I was surprised. No one. Ever. Asks for it. Ever. Haven’t sold one for years.”
“I’ll have to search for it”
Yes, I was perplexed but I wanted my damn Boots points.
So, with that confidence in mind I present you my aged Clarins Eyebrow Palette:
This palette is supposed to pretty much have everything you need for fabulous eye brows:
It’s a pretty big kit. I would use this daily and I would take it on holiday or for a weekend but I would never ever carry this with me day to day – I’m not that dedicated to brows (I prefer a Brow Ink and Gel to carry round).
In the palette is 3 brow powders, black, brown and blonde. The three shades should cover nearly all skintones or you can mix them together or graduate the colours. There’s also a brow wax, a base for the eyelids and a spoolie, applicator and tweezers.
Missing anything? If I was really fussy, scissors.
I piece of plastic on top of the palette makes everything easy to follow. There’s also a huge mirror:
Here is the palette:
It’s pretty neutral and will work for most skintones.
The brow powder is a hard texture and not too pigmented – this is a good thing for a brow powder imo because it just keeps things natural and makes it harder to mess up!
Before (please excuse the lashes and hair band!):
After – I used the wax, the powder over my eyelid, and the medium and light brow powders near the front of the brow and the dark near the ends. I trimmed longer brows too. I blended in the powder – I am really happy with the result!
So despite my (and the sales assistants!) doubts, I have to say this is a great eyebrow kit. The powders are just the right texture and I like the wax and base eyeshadow too. The spoolie is nice and firm, good for blending, and the applicator brush is ok and the tweezers are pretty rubbish – they don’t get small hairs but it’s better than nothing.
The palette is a little MASSIVE – I have other palettes with brow powders and wax that are far more compact, but still, it’s a good one to use at home.
I paid £29.50 for this from Boots, but you can buy it anywhere where there is a Clarins counter.
Do you use a brow kit?
