I was hesitant to buy the Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Universal Stencil Kit when I’ve noticed it on a display at Wallgreens. I mean, it looked alright, the price tag was great, but there is just something about Wet n Wild… Most of their products just do not cooperate with me, exception being their lipsticks. But since I really, really needed something to frame my eyebrows, that’s what caught my attention that night.
Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Universal Stencil Kit comes with everything you need to give your eyebrows life. You have three shades of browns, one highlighter, brow wax, brow comb, tweezers, brow brush and stencils. All that for only $5.99. Good deal!
Let’s start with the powders first. Like I said, the Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Universal Stencil Kit comes with three flattering shades of brown: light brown, medium and a dark brown. The texture of these powders is very soft and silky. The color payoff is pretty decent too. I am satisfied with their lasting power also, they stay on for the whole day without fading, especially if you are gonna use the brow wax as a primer… that will just increase their longevity. Keep in mind though: they are warm toned browns! So, the final result totally depends on your skin tone and hair color.
The highlighter is pretty. How to describe it… matte, off-white color with a touch of pink. I really enjoy using it. Not ashy or too yellow. It is just the right color. I do not see those with deeper skin tones using this highlighter, but if you have fair/light/medium skin tone you will like it.
I do not care about the brow wax. There is nothing wrong with it. I just never use wax to set my brows. I tried to use it as a brow powder primer and did not like the result. Of course the colors are more intense when you apply them on top of the wax, but also they apply somewhat blotchy. And since these powders are already quite pigmented I don’t feel the necessity to use the wax as a primer.
As to the tools it comes with, the tweezers are super small. Not that they are unusable, they are just too tiny to make me wanna use them. I do use them to put my falsies on :) The brow comb and the brush are alright but again too small.
The stencils are of good quality. Unfortunately, I find it too time consuming. Plus, their shape is not really what I am looking for when I do my eye brows.
I do reach for this palette every day. And I do not think they are any worse then my Anastasia Beverly Hills duo that I had. Definitely check this Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Universal Stencil Kit out, if you are looking for a warm brown brow powder. And since it is limited edition, you better hurry up :)
