My Eyebrow Miracle... E.l.f Eyebrow Kit Review and Swatches.

Up until about a year ago I never really cared about my eyebrows. To me they were just my little friends hanging out above my eyeballs keeping them company. Ya I plucked the crazy stray hairs but that was about the extent of my eyebrow grooming process. As I got into makeup more seriously and started watching YouTube videos and all that jazz I started noticing that everyone payed a lot of attention to their eyebrows and started to notice that they could make quite a difference.

Eyebrows can play quite a big roll in framing your face and changing a makeup look. You can instantly make a look more dramatic and make your eyes stand out by just filling them in a little bit. Now that I have realized how important grooming and accentuating your eyebrows can be I can't step out of the house without paying them a little extra attention.

I already spend what I think is too much time on my makeup as it is so I am always looking for products that make certain steps of my makeup routine faster and easier. Since I didn't want to spend ten minutes drawing in my eyebrows with a pencil I about rolled over when I bought and used the E.l.f Eyebrow Kit.

This little gem has been a life saver. At only $3 you really can't go wrong. You can purchase them at Target, Kmart, Walmart, or at ! These kits come in four colors light, medium, dark, and ash. The one I have is in Dark.

Packaging: Is awesome. It is very sleek and classy looking as is most of their studio line. Yet it is also very durable. I bring this in my purse often (the one above is new but this is my second one) and it never got broken. I also like that it comes with a little mirror which I actually use when I use this product. The brush is quite functional too. Though it is small the bristles are good quality and has two sides that work well to really tame those brows.

Formula: This kit is comprised of two parts a tinted brow wax (left) and a brow powder (right). Both are great. The wax is a little thinner in consistency so it doesn't make your eyebrows feel like you went over them with a glue stick yet it is strong enough to keep the brows in place. I also like that is is tinted. Sometimes I will wear only the wax. The brush is precise enough that you can use the wax to draw the outline of your eyebrows which is nice also. Then on the right side you have a powder. The powder is also great quality. It is nice and smoothly and finely milled. Yet just pigmented enough to make all the difference.

Most of the time I use the wax to outline and shape my brows then I will fill them in with the powder. The combination of the two lasts forever and I rarely need a touch up.
 Above is what it looks like with a coat of the wax and powder on the inner part of my brow. As you can see a little definition does wonders.

Have any of you used this product? What do you think?


  1. I just bought this product! I used it once and I am pretty happy with it though I do have a hard time applying the gel side with the brush, it might just take some practice. The way you did it looks awesome though, so I'll have to give this a bit more time :)

  2. Yes it does take a little practice. I had to use it a couple times before I really got it down pat. I think once you get the hang of it you will love this little guy even more.
