New from Ardell is everything you need for your brows in one kit for a very affordable price. Ardell Brow Defining Kit ($12.99) contains a brow defining palette, wax grooming pencil, and duo brow brush. The kit is designed to fill, shape and highlight brows.
Ardell Brow Defining Palette
This is a four pan palette that contains three brow shades and one brow highlighter. There is a taupe shade, which I like to consider the universal brow color; a light brown shade, and a dark brown shade. The highlighter is a decent color to compliment most skin tones, but may be a little too cool for deep skin tones if heavily applied. The colors are matte in finish, almost like second skin. The powder is not long lasting, only delivering roughly 6 hours of wear without a finishing spray and without the wax pencil. With a finishing spray, the powder lasted 9 hours. Check out swatches below:
Ardell Wax Grooming Pencil
Wax grooming pencils are very handy for use in lieu of a brow gel. The only downside to most wax pencils, this one included is the lack of staying power. After roughly four hours, the wax became almost greasy and caused the brow powder to slide off. Using a finishing spray did not improve the pencil’s staying power.
Ardell Duo Brow Brush
This double ended brush has a brow spoolie on one end to shape and define the brows, and an angled brush on the other end to apply brow powder (though a smaller version of this angled brush is included in the Brow Defining Palette as well.
Overall, for $12.99 this is a good deal and a great set.
