Shiseido says : NEW! Create the perfect brows. This compact allows you to create and style natural-looking eyebrows that complement your coloring with a beautiful finish that lasts all day. The double-sided applicator allows you to draw sharp lines for a bold look or blend shades for a softer finish.

My take on the Product

 

The Shiseido eye brow styling compact comes in a slim, compact case containing 2 brow powders and 1 dual ended applicator. The applicator contains a thin sponge tip end and the other – an angled brush. I rarely use the sponge tip applicator but the angled brush is quite useful. The underside of the lid contains a mirror which comes in handy for touch ups/travel. My brows are naturally quite thick but I do have some gaps here and there which I like filling up for a fuller look. The powders in this kit are just how brow powders need to be – finely milled and smooth but not powdery, pigmented but not overly so to avoid going overboard. Having said that, I notice that I need very little product in each application.

I have the shade Medium brown which contains a Dark grey toned brown and a Medium warm brown. I find the darker greyish brown more natural on me while the warmer color looks a bit too warm. I think it would be more natural on redheads. My natural hair color is quite dark with not much brown or red in it hence the slightly grey tones work best. I like the fact that the kit has 2 brow powders. Should you color your hair and go lighter or darker, you can tailor your brow color according by mixing the 2 shades!

I have used the darker shade for my brows below –

I used to use the Sleek Brow Kit previously which I used to like but after using this I realize how overly pigmented and dark the Sleek wax/powder is and one can end up with scary brows if one is not careful. The Shiseido powders are more buildable and beginner-friendly. Also, the staying power of these powders is phenomenal. I barely see any fading of color even after 8-9 hours of wear. Overall, I’m quite impressed by this brow kit and it has found a permanent place in my makeup stash. Now if only it contained a tiny tweezer in there, it would have been a perfect 5/5!

 

Rating : 4.8/5

  1. This one sound greats.

    angled brushes are best for eyebrow filling, wts the use of sponge applicator in that?

    using eyebrow powder to fill eyebrows and using eyebrow pencil to fill them, does this make any diffrence??

  2. umm, I like using a very dark brown matte eyeshadow (almost black) for my brows, since I have dark hair, dark eyes, dark brows… if I use a lighter brown, it looks weird and the filled patches stand out. this one won’t suit me I guess 😐

  3. Honestly you don’t need this or anything for brows, your brows are really thick and full 🙂 I Love full brows but mine are sparse

    could you please recommend something like under rs 600 or so for brows that is also available in India?

    This one is way too pricey.
