My brows and I have had quite a turbulent relationship over the years. I spent the entirety of my school years loathing their naturally big shape which resulted in a fair few cringe worthy ‘incidents’ in an attempt to tame them. Fast forward a few years (OK a lot), miraculously, big brows are back and are big business with a huge amount of brow products to choose from. My current favourite brow product is the Sleek Brow Stylist which is a dual ended with a pencil one end and a spoolie the other. One brow product I’ve always wanted to try is the Sleek MakeUP Brow Kit £8.49* after reading so many rave reviews, however the ‘Dark’ shade is always seemingly out of stock. I was so happy when I finally got my hands on the elusive Dark Kit, and I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself.
The Sleek Brow Kit is available in a total of four shades, which I think is a pretty good shade range for a drugstore brand. Each kit includes a powder, a wax, a set of mini tweezers, an angled brush and a rounded brush all inside a square mirrored compact. The pans of wax and powder are a good size, and the tools are actually quite good quality.
The tweezers are perfect for occasional use for catching any straggler brow hairs, and the two brushes are ideal for applying the powder and wax respectively. The angled brush works well at applying the powder, in small strokes and the rounded brush applies the wax evenly without leaving my brows feeling crispy or caked in product.
Both the powder and wax within the Sleek MakeUP Brow Kit are an amazing shade match for my dark brows. The wax looks considerably darker than the powder, but as you can see from the swatches they’re actually pretty similar in shade.
What I particularly love about this brow kit is that you can choose to use the powder or wax separately or you can use them together. The wax is pigmented enough for you to be able to use it on its own to fill in your brows so this kit is pretty versatile as far as brow kits go.
On a day to day basis, I like to use the powder within the Sleek MakeUP Brow Kit lightly to help shape my brows and then use a tiny amount of wax over the total to set them in place. I think £8.49 is such a great price for a brow kit of this quality, especially when you consider that Benefit Brow Zings is £24.50 for pretty much exactly the same product. I’m so pleased I finally got to try this amazing little kit, and I can certainly see why it’s so hyped.
