The main reason I started writing beauty stuff on my blog is my obsession with trying new products. The latest mascara, the ‘wonder’ eyeliner? Yep I’ve bought and tried them all. So it will come as no surprise that with the beauty blogger hype over Makeup Revolution it was only a matter of time until I succumbed to my curiousity and bought something. I was quite controlled though and only really crumbled when I saw the ridiculous price of the Focus and Fix brow kit. I never do anything with my eyebrows and have been searching for the perfect fool proof product to give them a bit more shape and fullness. At just £2.50 I had nothing to lose.
The kit is very similar to the Chanel Le Sourcil De Chanel with its three shades of powder, mini brush and mini tweezers. It is missing the mini brow brush but has a fixing wax instead, something I find much more useful. I went for the dark kit as I have quite dark eyebrows but I was worried that this would mean any mistakes would be harder to disguise.
I actually prefer the brush in this kit to the one in the Chanel kit as it is that bit softer making it easy to work with. The tweezers are a bit pointless to be honest, they aren’t sharp enough to get out the pesky little hairs and if you I was plucking my eyebrows properly I’d use my normal sized tweezers anyway.
The powder shades compliment each other well and are really blendable so, if none of the shades match your brows perfectly, you can create your own colour by mixing them. I find the lightest and the middle shade the perfect colour for my brows as the darker shade is a bit too warm for my eyebrows. When I used that shade they had a slightly orangey tinge which I obviously didn’t want. The pigment is also good with just a couple of swipes in each pan to get the desired coverage and shape on my eyebrows. The thing I love about this kit is that you can work with the powder to get the perfect shape, touching it up as you go, then once your ready top it with the setting wax to keep it in place. I find this allows me to mess about removing bits easily before committing my face to the shape I have created, a huge selling point for brow virgins like me! And at £2.50, if you aren’t sold on it, you haven’t lost that much. I mean the Chanel palette is £40 and I have that in my makeup case because my mum bought it and decided she didn’t like it… that’s one expensive mistake.
Now if I can ignore the pretty eye shadow palettes before my road trip….
This item was paid for in full. This is my honest opinion of the kit and I only wish my Mum had seen it before she saw the Chanel one.
