I will start right away by telling you that at the end of this post I have a surprise for you! It’s a giveaway by Billion Dollar Brows, 30 lucky readers (this giveaway is shared by multiple bloggers, so it’s a total of 30 lucky winners based on all the data) are gonna gonna get the exact kit I will review in today’s post.
This is a holiday kit by BDB (Billion Dollar Brows) of their best sellers. It retails right now for $34.99 but its real value is $73. This is a great gift for the upcoming holidays.
So, you get an universal eye brow pencil, brow gel, smudge brush, duo highlighter pencil and as a bonus you get a sharpener. That’s everything you need for those perfect brows.
The booklet I have received with this kit is like a presentation of all the BDB products. They do have a lot of interesting products actually.
Our brows is like a frame for our face. So, never do skip this step in your makeup routine. It can change your whole look.
Let’s start with the Universal Pencil. It should match any hair color. To me the color is a little bit more on the warm side, I’d like it to be more taupey.
If you’re blonde, just go over your eye brow with a light hand in small strokes for a natural effect; if your hair is dark or medium keep applying it until you reach the desired color. The spoolie on the other end of the pencil does a great job blending the pencil.
One thing that I don’t like is the formula of this pencil, it’s too waxy for my liking and also it would be a huge plus if the pencil would be thinner. If you’ve ever seen the Anastasia’s Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil you know what I mean :)
The Brow Gel is that product that impressed me the most. Its formula is really interesting and something that I didn’t see before at any other brands. So, after you apply it on your brows, it dries out and… it’s not hard rock! Your eyebrows are still soft to the touch, it’s like you didn’t apply anything at all, but your brows are on point! I liked that. It looks very natural.
Brow Duo Pencil is a good one too. Nothing that wowed me, but it’s a nice product to highlight your brows and to conceal some areas on your face.
You get full coverage on the concealer end. It covers some acne marks on my face completely. The formula is nice, it applies smoothly and easy. It’s not greasy. Make sure you’re not using it on your dry areas, it’s gonna accentuate them.
The highlighter is good too. Formula and texture wise it’s the same product as the concealer, the only difference would be the color.
As you can see, I think this Brow Duo Pencil will match light to medium skin tones. I don’t think this one is gonna work for darker skin tones unfortunately.
That’s a very good idea to include in this kit a brush. It’s a flat, synthetic brush to highlight your brow bone. And it would become a must have for me if it would be a little thinner. I am using it to apply cream products on my eyes.
Overall, I do think that this kit is worth your attention. The products are nice and the quality is there. It has everything you need for beautiful eyebrows, the only product I would skip or change it for something else (but that’s just me, you may end liking it) is the brush.
