I’m finally doing really well with long-term maintenance my eyebrows and it has made a real difference – they tend to keep their shape longer and look neater, so I’m keeping at getting them dyed relatively regularly and threaded or waxed very regularly, with the results being what I think are pretty good brows! I mentioned in my intro post to the No7 SS15 launches that a very cool brow kit had launched, so here’s a closer look at it.
The kit is aptly named as it’s definitely a kit; you get two brow colours in great shades, a wax, a higlighter, a double-ended angled brush and a spoolie, all of which are housed in a very sturdy mirrored compact. This is pretty much a perfect kit, but if I’m going to be annoyingly picky (and you knows I’m gonna…) then I’d say that the spoolie could’ve been double ended too, as then you’d have a brush for every element of the compact.
Ridiculously minor moans aside, this is very much a star kit that allows you to easily create anything from lightly filled in, natural brows, to seriously angled arches, depending on your preference. The two shades included are a mid, neutral taupe and a deeper, ashy brown. I’m not a huge fan of universal colours, but I’d say most people other than those with very, very fair brows, very dark brows or red brows could get away with using these shades – I’m pretty fair and neither colours are too dark on me; I use the lighter all through the brow and the darker shade on the outer third.
The highlighter is a great cream, not-too-sheeny finish that allows you to sketch in the perfect shape for a neater look, or just swipe under the brow for a little more definition. I’m not a huge brow wax fan so I tend not to use it much, but it’s handy to have if you’re prone to wandering brows. The Boots No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Kit is a brilliant set that I’ve already recommended to quite a few people and I love using it myself for quick, natural brows. It’s also extremely well priced at £12.95 here – link.
