ELF Eyebrow Kit in Light

The ELF Eyebrow Kit is a palette containing a duo of a tinted wax and defining powder. It comes in 4 shades ranging from ash up to dark brown. I choose the shade light, because really ashy tones don't look so great with my red hair. 

The tinted wax is great for taming my brows. It gives them a hint of colour but mostly it helps hold and unruly brow hairs in place. It also help me lay out a foundation for where I am going to apply the powder. 

I use the wax first and follow it up with the powder. The wax not only tames the brows like I said above but gives the powder a base so it shows up a bit more pigmented that when it's used alone. Using that combination is great if the shade is a bit to light for you or if you want a bolder brow. You could use the wax or the powder alone for a more subtle, natural look, but bold brows are a favourite of mine at the moment so I combine the two. 

I also found that using the wax first and then the powder on top gave the brows a more natural look. If I used the wax over the powder but it caked up slightly and made my eyebrow appear patchy and very obviously drawn on. It wasn't a good look. 

I picked this up when it was half off, but it retails for £3.75 normally so it's not going to break the bank if you don't pick it up on sale. It comes in decent packaging, with a brush that I still use to apply the product and it has a tiny mirror that you could use if you needed to. 

The compact shape and size is very similar to that of NARS eyeshadow, but it is very plastic-y in comparison to NARS and the clear window showing the product is different from NARS too. 

I would recommend picking this up if you fill in your brows. The product is great quality, extremely cheap and they have a shade that (I think) would suit just about everyone. It's a very similar concept to the Benefit Browzings or the Sleek Brow Kit but it's so much cheaper. 

You can pick this up here for just £3.75 here, but ELF always have some kind of sale so check out there Facebook or Twitter pages for coupon codes to save some dosh! 

I've heard so many rumors about GFC going away, so maybe pop over to bloglovin and give me a follow there to keep up to date with my blog!


  1. Love this! I've always questioned the quality of elf products because they're so cheap but this looks really good! :)

    1. ELF does normally have great quality! It can be a bit hit and miss but mostly it's great!
