I posted a talk through review of this product on my new YouTube Channel along with a tutorial on how I do my brows using the products. For regular followers of my blog, you will know I like to do a ‘Straight, No Chaser’ review on products so here we go!
Brows are a big deal for me as you can probably tell by previous posts where I talk about not leaving home without brows and lips . For the longest time I was happy to have my brows threaded but not put any additional product on them although they were extremely thin and sparse. I am now more confident with make-up and understand the importance of brows and how they shape and frame the face. I have alot of products for the brows and now with this product, I have some more.
On my vacay to New York, I picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills, No Brows, No Problem! kit. I purchased it from Sephora as an exclusive new product. The review you are about to read, as always, is my honest opinion based on my use of the product. I have not been paid or endorsed in any way.
Why I love this product!
Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for her brow and eye products. Colours are rich in pigment and textures are kind to the skin. I was first introduced to her products by a friend who bought me a brow kit as a gift a year ago. I instantly fell in love with the brow powder and is was like nothing I had used before. My brows looked fuller and more natural almost instantly. When I saw the No Brows, No Problem kit in Sephora, I wanted it immediately. When I saw that there were 3 products in the kit, I thought even better. I did not need it but I wanted it. Read on to find out how this product is rated in Price, Packaging and Product!
Beauty Holder Roundup!
What makes it value for money and worth the score above is the fact that you get 3 products for the price. They are full good-sized products and not mini versions/ samples which you tend to get in kits sometimes. It retailed for approximately $59 or $69. I am not sure if that was the permanent price or a special at the time. It is still a little pricey, however, which is why it did not get a higher score from me. I am conscious that you are paying for a well-known name in the beauty industry and it is more of a high-end department store brand as opposed to a drug store one.
I love when packaging is sleek and simple. Clearly labelled and hard-wearing. When I am on the go with my kit for shoots, it can take a beating. There is nothing worse than opening up your case to see items damaged no matter how much care and attention you paid to looking after them.
The kit comes in a box with 3 items. There is no extra security in the box such as bubble wrap or bagging. The actual items themselves are durable. There is a serum, pencil with a spoolie/ brush at one end and clear brow gel. They all have the Anastasia Beverly Hills logo and font and bold and bright. They look expensive. That is something my mom would say. They give the impression of quality. The serum has a net weight of 2.5g or 0.04 oz. The pencil is 0.085g/ 0.003 oz. The brow gel does not state weight or size. Items do not appear to be recyclable which is reflected in the score.
The brief prelude above tells you in so many words why I love the product. I am going to divulge some more reasons. Let me start with the fact that you get 3 great products in the kit. You get a Brow Enhancing Serum which I personally find amazing and has definitely helped my brow hairs grow thicker and faster. A skin care product as part of a make-up kit is a great idea and shows that they do not only care about the end result but enhancing your brows too. Used before applying the pencil and gel and then at night before bed it is said to ‘encourage the growth of thicker hair’. A little bit of this goes along way. I have found that the serum also leaves my brow hairs a little tacky and gives the pencil something to adhere to. I used it once with some Anastasia Brow Duo Powder and it was amazing.
Next you have a dual purpose product the Brow Wiz. A twist action mechanical brow pencil at one end and a spoolie on the other end. You can pick up the brow wiz separately in several shades suitable for hair colour, eye colour, or personal preference. The pencil is one of the best I have used and it is something I use on a daily basis. It offers great definition to shape and fill in brows. Where the hair is sparse the product does not make the skin look waxy or too drawn on. The tip is fine and you can mimic brow hairs by using a light hand and this product. You can twist the product the opposite direction to make sure that it is safe in the cap and doesn’t break. Simple things like this make me happy. It is without a doubt a simple and effective tool to give you natural or dramatic brows depending on how you like. It has a brilliant matt finish also. The spoolie at the other end is a bonus. Simple brush away excess product after use and brush your own brow hairs before you use the pencil. It is great when you have everything you need at your fingertips.
Finally you get the clear brow gel. Helps the product and your hair stay in place and not budge. Great if you have oily skin or sweat alot or will have them on for a long period of time. With me not having a lot of brow hair, I find that the gel can give a bit of a shine factor to my brows so I don’t always use it. When used on clients that have full brow hair this works great.
I really do love this product and it makes me excited to try other products by Anastasia. Taking time on the brows with a product as great as this will give such an excellent well polished look. Looking at the individual retail prices for each product in this kit it is value for money and it will last a long time. I get numerous compliments on my brows when I use this product and enjoy using it on my clients. The name is a brand I trust and that is because the products speak for themselves. Can you hear them? What they say is ‘my brows look fabulous!’
