Back in September after I went to Paris with Sigma, My mom had emailed Simone, the co-owner, to thank her for her hospitality and for including me in this project (my mom loves to thank companies for taking care of me!) They started talking, and this brow kit got brought up. I think my mom was probably the first one outside of the Sigma employees to know that this kit was in the works!
When I went to IMATS, Sigma had a party for their affiliates and introduced the Brow kit. Simone Insisted I take one for my mom (she LOVES this kit, by the way!) It’s finally coming out today, so I thought I’d give you a look at this amazing kit- it really is EVERYTHING you would ever need to get kickass brows!
All prettified straight from the event!
Top of box without the frills
Opened and everything in its place
Top- Scissors, Mirror, Slanted tweezers, and three brow stencils
Small, Medium, and Large brow stencils.They are made of flexible plastic, so you would hold it against your brows and fill in with an angle brush and the brow powder (you could use a pencil I suppose, but I find it’s easiest to use powder with stencils!)
Slanted tweezers. In my opinion, easiest way to pluck your brows! Close up! Scissors- for trimming brows.
They are also angled. Easiest way to trim brows- press spoolie against your brows and twist upward so hairs stick up, and trim. this way you only get the long ones!
Lower Level- Two brow pencils (one is a matte and shimmer highlight for the brow bone, one is a medium and dark pencil for brows), pencil sharpener, five brow powders, brow tint and clear setting gels, and an angle/spoolie duo brush. Matte Brow Highlight.Shimmer Brow Highlight.
Dark PencilMedium Pencil Matte and Shimmer duo pencil swatches
Medium and Dark Pencil Swatches. I don’t know why these seem to have a bit of sparkle in them.
Brow shades. They’ve basically gotten everything covered for all natural haired people. Swatches.
Brow Gel Swatch of tinted brow gel. again, not sure why there is shimmer Duo brush. The kit also comes with this handy booklet, explaining how to figure out your brow shape, along with different ways to use the kit. It’s pretty nifty- it shows how to change your brow shape and color depending on how you do your eye makeup. This is especially helpful if you buy this kit for yourself, considering most people wouldn’t think they would need more than one or two products in this kit!
You can probably tell that this is very all-inclusive, and if you’re buying this kit just for yourself, you may be a bit overwhelmed considering it covers all bases. I think this is why they included the booklet, so that you can see how you can get the most out of the kit (it explains a lot about using more than one brow color to get a different look- lighter on the inside and fading out to a darker shade) which I think is so, so helpful.
I think this is an awesome option for people who freelance (although you may consider figuring out how to depot those shadows, as this is a bit bulky for freelancing!)
Now, when I first found out the price on this kit, I was a little surprised- It’s selling for $69. I thought that seemed a bit pricey, but then I thought about how much is included in this kit, and did a bit of research on Sephora, and here is what the average price of each of these things costs-
Slanted Tweezers: $20
Tinted Brow Gel: $21
Clear Gel: $21
Brow Powder: $22 (two shades)
Matte/Shimmer Brow Highlight Duo: $23
Brow Pencil: $20 (couldn’t find duo)
Angle/Spoolie Brush duo: $18
Brow Stencils: $20
Granted, Yes, this is all off of Sepora and most of these things are Anastasia and Tweezerman, and I’m sure you could find more inexpensive alternatives. The closest thing I found to this set on Sephora was this kit from Anastasia:
The differences being you get 4 stencils instead of 3, as well as a mascara and a depuffing eye cream, but you aren’t getting the shimmer highlight, scissors, tinted brow gel, brow pencils, sharpener, and you have to choose your brow color. This retails for $75. So, a little over $9 per item (if you count the stencils as one).
Overall, yes, it is on the pricer side, but considering all you are getting, If you are in need of brow help I’d say it’s worth considering!
