Last year I collaborated with Cult Beauty to put together my ultimate makeup bag of beauty must-haves, and for the brows I chose the Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion. I hadn’t ever tried a brow cushion before, so the idea kinda appealed to me as being something a little different from the normal pencils, pomades and gels.
Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion
“An innovative two-shade liquid brow compact that creates effortlessly fuller-looking brows.
The first-of-its-kind, a cushion-like dispensing system allows your brush to become fully saturated in each of the rich, pigmented colours that are both smudge-proof and sweat resistant to ensure long-lasting, gradual eyebrows.
Each cushion contains Vitamin E renowned to help stimulate the growth of your natural brows, alongside a unique long-lasting formula. Each champagne-gold, mirrored compact includes a double -sided applicator with a spoolie at one end and an ultra-thin angled brush on the other to create hair-like strokes, for the most precise brow application yet – think micro-blading at home! (6g).” – Iconic London
The Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion is £24 and comes in four different shade duos;
- Fair – warm toned blonde
- Cool Fair – cool & ash toned blonde
- Medium – brunette
- Deep – dark brunette or jet black
The Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion is packaged within a rose gold metallic compact. Once you open the lid, the cushion is protected by an air tight secondary lid, with an applicator which folds out to give you a miniature spoolie and a miniature angled brush to apply and blend the brow cushion through the brows.
I chose the Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion in the shade Medium as it looked like a good neutral toned duo. I have naturally very dark brown brows, and so many deep brunette brow products are orange toned. The Medium Eyebrow Cushion includes a slightly warm toned medium brown and a cool toned deep brown.
If you’ve never tried a cushion before, it’s essentially a well filled with product which is saturated into the sponge. When you press the brush into the sponge, you can see the liquid come to the surface.
It’s essentially like a brow cream in a more liquid format, and you just swipe the angled brush over the sponge a couple of times and then apply directly to the brows to ‘draw’ hair-like strokes, and then blend out with the spoolie for a more diffused effect.
Both sides of the cushion dry down to a matte finish, and the applicator isn’t bad. I prefer using a smaller, more precise brow brush but it’s definitely usable. I really like the effect the Iconic London Sculpt & Boost Eyebrow Cushion gives.
You can go for a subtle more natural look, or go for intense Insta-brows. This compact contains 6g of product which didn’t seem very much, but I’ve used mine for months and months and it’s still filled with product.
