Review: Anastasia Beauty Express For Brows & Eyes

I recall one of my close girlfriends saying once: "You should never trust a woman with bad eyebrows." Though I can't remember the context in which she said this, I have to agree with her to a certain extent. We all know those women who have caterpillars brows and then their polar opposites, the women who have hardly any brows. Neither look is very attractive in my opinion, which is why I like to invest a lot of time in maintaining my brows.

I always had my eye on this Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes ($39.50) in Brunette because it looked like a really great deal. Inside the kit is a wax, brow powder duo, eyeshadow duo, 5 stencils and a brush. I currently use the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo ($23) so I figured paying an extra $16.50 for wax, shadow, stencils and a brush was worth it.

However, I wasn't as blown away by this product as I thought I would be. While the Brow Powder Duo is amazing, the rest of the products in this kit don't justify the extra $16.50. The wax is ineffective, no matter how much I use it doesn't keep my brow hairs in place. The eyeshadow duo is very beautiful but I have so many highlighter shades in my makeup collection already that I didn't really see a point in having it. The stencils were by far the most disappointing because none of them fit my brow shape. As for the brush, it looked like a brush that would come in a drugstore brow kit.

Overall, I wasn't in love with the Beauty Express enough to pay $39.50 for it. I ended up returning it to Sephora a few days ago and purchasing another Brow Powder Duo to replace my old one. I feel like the Brow Powder Duo is good enough on its own. Even though the other products included make it a fairly good deal, I couldn't see myself using the products enough to keep the entire kit.

  1. I've heard that the brow pencil from Anastasia is pretty good. :)

  2. I love the "don't let anyone with bad eyebrows tell you sh*t about life". Too bad that the kit isn't too great.

  3. Yea, that's a bit pricey for what it comes with that you may not use. I recently watched an Anastasia brows video and now I'm seeing your post...it's time to start tending to my brows lol

  4. I actually just used up my Anastasia Brow Wiz! It really is great but I prefer powder because I've noticed that pencil tends to look very harsh on me.

  5. Haha, I actually almost died of laughter when my friend said that because it's so true! I really had high hopes for this product too ):

  6. Yeah, I ended up just purchasing the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo on its own. I'm actually in the process of growing out my brows and reshaping them!
