Asalamolaikum and Hello everyone!
I am back with another review, the first brow kit in my stash. It is wet n wild ultimate brow kit in the shade Ash Brown. Nowadays, every make-up junkie is keeping atleast one brow product in its collection and I jumped into the bandwagon too. The actual scene is that I had a real bad fall when I was just 13 months old and my left eye brow has a big hairless scar in centre. People always used to ask me to fill it in with some color but whenever I tried to do so, it looked so unnatural to me because I was used to that scar. This is the first time I have tried to use a brow kit, let’s see how it fares for me. Well for clarification, I don’t shape up/pluck my eyebrows; I think they are fine the way they are and tempering with them may lead to a permanent trouble of beauty salon rounds *rofl*. My life is already too busy to carry these “Jhanjhat”! Lets move on to the review.
Mini brow salon in a handy, purse-friendly compact with all the essential tools to shape, smooth, define, and maintain perfect brows. This five-piece set includes a soft wax that shapes brows, two setting powders for definition, a hard angle brush for easy application, and mini tweezers for stray hairs.
Around $4.25. I got it for $6.5 with taxes+shipping from an online store.
(Tweeze) Remove any stray hairs from above or below brow. Fill in eyebrows with one or both Brow Powders to match hair color. Apply Brow Gel in an upward direction to keep brows in place.
My take on Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit-Ash Brown:
The packaging is really functional. A silver box with transparent cover, which includes a small brow brush, small tweezers pair, an eyebrow clear gel, a dark and a light brown shade as powders and a slide out mirror on side. The packagings is travel friendly, not flimsy but ensure not to give it a fall since the plastic cover might break with a fall.
Eye brow Powders and Clear Gel:
Starting from the shades, they both are matte. The shades can work individually too depending what is the natural color of your hair. Like Asian people will need dark or mixture of both powders and blondes will need the lighter one. The lighter shade is more smooth and soft in texture and works best for me when combined with the darker shade. it is superb and blends like a butter, stays long hours and doesn’t wipe off too easily like with the touch if my hand etc. the darker powder shade is a bit harsh in texture but little effort blends it really well and can also be worked with. The combination of both works best for my eyebrows giving them a natural look. These powders essentially don’t need a clear gel; they stay in place without it. So I don’t use it much because I am not an expert at brow shaping and trying too much makes it look tacky and untidy for me. But I am sure expert hands can use it well. Both the powders are super pigmented and you won’t go overboard if you pay attention while using the kit even if you are a beginner like me.
The brush, Pair of Tweezers and Mirror:
Well, the brush is just average. It can work as a troubleshooting tool if you don’t have anything else in your brush case but don’t expect ideal results from it. It has a small handle and stiff bristle which are of average quality. It is highly advised to use your own brow brush. This slanted brush barely kicks off any powder from the pans. The tweezers are the trash-can feed; they are useless. Too small for plucking and low quality they have but still I have found a better utilization for them. I take their assistance in my false lash applying practice and they are really handy for the job. The slide out mirror is a plus and really useful when you want a touch up while travelling. It is of quite big size considering the sleek kit.
Pros of Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit-Ash Brown:
• A light weight and portable brow kit with all essential tools
• The mirror is very helpful when you are travelling.
• The eye brow powders are super pigmented and matte.
• Lighter shade is smooth, soft and blends easily.
• The dark brown shade is somewhat harsh and need some blending efforts.
• The kit will work for everyone.
• The tweezers are the best tool for false lashes.
• The clear gel keeps the hairs in place.
• The powders have amazing staying power and don’t budge all day long even without the clear gel.
• The brow powders stay in place without wiping off too easily.
• Affordable price.
Cons of Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit-Ash Brown:
• Tweezers not appropriate for plucking.
• The brush is stiff and barely picks up powder from the pans.
4.5/5 (marks deducted for Parabens)
I am not deducting marks for tweezers and brush because of the quality and pigmentation if powders and clear gel.
Recommendation & Repurchase of Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit-Ash Brown:
This had become my HG kit for eye brows. Though it will last me long and I won’t repurchase it too soon but I recommend it to everyone who wants a brow kit at an affordable price.
