Review: Anastasia of Beverly Hills Beauty Express brow kit

What is it?
All-in-one kit Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes 

Retail Price:$39.50

Where to buy:  anastasia.net

My thoughts and experience:  
I received the brunette Beauty Express brow kit to test out. The kit contains a mirror, brow wax cream, duo brow powder,  eyeshadow duo, 5 stencils, and an angled eye brush. 

My first attempt went something like this -
I was trying to decide which stencil will fit me the best. I ended up using the medium arch. Although it may not match up directly to the shape of your brow, you can tilt it a certain way on the half way point to match it up. 

I used the angled brush to apply the brow wax cream over my brows to help them stay in place. Then, I placed the stencil over my brow and used the angled eye brush to fill it in with the darker portion of the duo brow powder. As you can see, for my first time, when I filled it in, one of the brows was a little crooked. This definitely takes practice!

This helped me define my brow shape while I plucked the strays and try to shape it according to the stencil. I plucked a couple of extra hairs here and there.

I've been using this kit almost every single day, seriously. Well, the colors, atleast. I don't do my brows everyday :P I love this kit for the simplicity of the colors, it helps to make my morning routine quick and easy. I use the matte shadow for base, the highlight part on the brow bones, and the lighter brow powder on the outer corners of my eye for something extra. Then I use the brow brush to lightly fill in my brows with the darker color. 
Here's the final result:

It would have been so awesome if the kit came with small scissors and/or tweezers, since those are two tools that are needed for brow grooming. Overall, I think this is a great kit for everyday use. It's great for women who like the natural look. The kit that I tested is best suited for medium to dark hair. They also have a kit for blondes.

  1. You did a great job Sissy. This is an awesome tool to learn how to master the brow. I wish I could do my brows.

  2. i agree, using this takes practice. and it would've been awesome if there were scissors and/or tweezers included, but other than that i thought it was a really good product too. :)

    p.s. is it just me or was the brunette shade way too dark for you too?

  3. Thanks Dr. Reginia, it sure takes alot of practice!

    I wonder if they sell just stencils, Siwing.

    Mimi, it's too dark for me, so I always wipe a little on a napkin before I apply it on my brows.
