Everything you need for Brows! Clarins Kit Sourcils Eyebrow Kit Pro Palette Review

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 what?”

“The Eyebrow Kit”

“Oh. That’s what I thought you said.”

“Really?”

“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 see.”

“I’ll have to search for it”

“Right”

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:#alttext#

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!

The powder:

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?

  1. I’ve never used a Brow Kit, I just prefer a random clear mascara usually Miss Sporty’s one and my Rimmel Brow Pencil in Hazel. :) x

  2. Your brows look really good.

    GOSH have just come out with a brow kit and it’s pretty good.

  3. baby in a corner says:

    I use smashbox cause the colours are really light for my blonde brows!

  4. whaaaaaaa?? No one ever asks for it? Nutso, this is a great little bit of kit!

  5. Hi, I’m so glad I found your post! I need help! I accidentally singed off half of my eyebrow at New Years and need something to mask the baldness while the hairs grow back.

    I found the colours in this kit to be perfect. I think I have similar colouring to you. I have jet-black hair and mixing the black and brown powders gave me a natural look. All of the the other products I’ve tried have come out too dark/harsh/black or else have a reddish undertone.

    Unfortunately, I’m having a lot of trouble with the wax. It balls up when I load my brush and also balls up when I try to apply it. When I went to Sephora, the consultant introduced me to the Smashbox Brow Tech wax, which has a delicious, easy-to-use texture.

    Because of the money factor, I’d rather not buy the Smashbox wax. Do you think you can give me some application tips for the Clarins wax?

    Please help!

  6. ps. I want to add that I am a complete makeup newbie. :P
