remember a few months back when i told you i would be
reviewing anastasia's beauty express eyebrow kit?
well, the day has finally come.
but first, in interlude...
me: i just received a sample of anastasia's beauty express eyebrow kit,
and i tried it today. what do you think? does it make my eyebrows look more solid?
co-worker: your eyebrows look darker, but they don't have a proper tail.
me: shoot. i wish i brought it with me so i could fix it!
co-worker: in my culture, we believe in the feng shui of the face.
eyebrows are the most important because they frame your face.
they should be symmetrical and they should have a clear beginning,
middle and end. this will reflect the life of your career.
me: so if my eyebrow is lacking a tail today, does that mean my life just (gulp) ...ends??
as i have said before, my eyebrows are funny.
they grow in two different directions; are very thick at the beginning
and thin at the end, and they're very fine. anastasia's eyebrow kit is fun
because it comes with a number of different-shaped stencils that
you can match up and help even out your brows with.
you start by filling in your brow with the wax (on the left),
and then use the color in the center to fill in your brows, and the
last eyeshadow(on the right) to highlight the space directly below
your eyebrows. and there are directions included to help you do so :)
all in all, i think it is a fine product. it is a bit softer than my eyebrow pencil,
and the wax does help keep my funny eyebrows in place. the color of the
eyeshadow is similar to the neutral colors i often wear, and the stencils
helped me correct the shape of my brows quite a bit.
i still don't think my brows could ever look as perfect as the models
on the anastasia website, but at least they have a clear
beginning, middle and end- which is all you
can ever hope to get out of makeup
