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

Availability : Shiseido counters and online at shiseido.com.
