“ Brand: The Body Shop „
My mother bought this for herself, but she decided that she does not like this. She thinks this product is not quite efficient, and gives her too much hassle as she has got used to her eyebrow pencil and kohl eye liner. So she gave it to me, thinking that maybe because I am younger and more adventurous with my make up, this product would suit me better.
I thought so.
But it does not work for me. Unfortunately.
As an eye liner, it is horrible. It is not as easy to use as kohl pencil, it does not give a bold enough or prominent enough lining to give the pop I expected. The brush is horrible; not only the bristle but also the handle. I wonder how anyone should work it out with that brush?
As a eyebrow definer, it works, to an extent. I could technically use this to fill in between the sparser eyebrow, but that just it. I cannot use it to give a better shape of my eyebrow, or give it an extra length in the end of my brow, without making it look very unnatural. And again, how can I work with that brush?
As a travelling buddy, this is definitely a nightmare. It used up more space in my purse, and the powders would start dusting each other, and the brushes.
I was going to give this product to someone else, but my sister refused, and said that she would rather stick with her pencils and felt liner, and my mum did not want it back. So this body shop brow and liner kit has been sitting there untouched for months now.
I bought this brow and liner kit when I finished the body shop eye brow kit. I like the body eye brow kit as I find it very easy to use. Hence I thought I will get the same kit but that brow kit was discontinued.
I bought the replacement which is the brow and eye kit. The kit have 2 powder kit, light brown and dark brown. The light brown is for application on the eye brow and the dark brown powder kit is used as an eyeliner. One end of the applicator is a bristle like brush and the other end a thin and fine hair like brush.
What is my verdict?
Firstly, I find the thin brush difficult to use. The brush tend to spiral outwards and it does not form a thin line easily. It is not easy to slide the brush back into the plastic cover too.
Secondly. when I use the bristle like brush to apply the powder on my eyebrow, it does not give a even shade.
Thirdly, I carry the eyebrow and liner kit in my bag which was a mistake. The two powder cake became dislocated from the main container making it look messy.
I still prefer the older version of the body shop eyebrow kit. Though the overall outlook of the kit looks better than the previous model, ( it has a silver casing ), the interior is not user friendly.
