Ah… those brows. It seems like you hear all about brows now a days and I remember when there was a time when brows took a back seat to other parts of your makeup looks. Truth be told, brows are important… the “unsung heroes” so to say because they not only provide a statement to your overall look, but they frame the face, giving you a polished appearance. I’ll admit that sometimes my brows take a back seat in my beauty regime since I go bare face on a daily, but I believe they are important nonetheless. Today I share with you the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit, some goodies to add to your brow game!
The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit retails for $34.99 – a major steal considering it has a retail value of $73.00 if the items are purchased separately. This is the first time I have used anything from this brand, so I really liked having a variety of goodies to play with. The kit includes five products:
- Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil
- Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel Clear
- Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Highlighter
- Billion Dollar Brows Smudge Brush
- Billion Dollar Brows Sharpener
The Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil is such a unique product in that it takes the guess work out of trying to find the perfect shade to fill in your brows. No more are the days of trying to match your hair color with your brow shade. This Universal brow pencils is perfect for Blonds and Brunettes and offers a mechanical, self-sharpening pencil which goes on smooth and natural for all hair colors and skin tones. Attached to the end of this pencil is a brow spoolie to help groom those strays into place. Overall I like this product. It’s water resistant, lasts all day on my brows and it has a light wax like texture that keeps my brows in place without the need to use a gel to set them. If I had to make one suggestion, I wish the tip on this was a little more sharp, rather than rounded since I often like to have a precise edge… but that is personal preference and any error or mistakes can easily be cleaned up with the duo pencil or concealer if you would like.
The Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel is clear and and helps to lock your brows into place. This gel is lightweight and applies easily. What I love the most about it is when used in combination with the Brow pencil, your brows are bullet proof and stay in place till you are ready to take them off. I had my brows in place for 10 hours one day and when I went to remove my makeup at the end of the day – they were still there, bold and strong. Also – it is guaranteed to never flake.
The Brow Duo Highlighter includes two products in one and is the secret weapon to adding definition and warmth to your brows. This pencil will allow you to highlight your brow bone and for those who need it, it can also be used as a handy universal concealer. Both shades offer a matte / cream finish and blend effortlessly. I especially like that it gives my brow a nice lift at the arch when applied under my brow. Use in combination with the Smudge Brush for perfect, show stopping brows. A quick note… while I love the creaminess of this pencil, I find that it is a little more stiff than others I have tried. That doesn’t affect the product – but is personal preference. Because of this I find that on my darker skin if I put too much product, I may be blending it out for quite a while. So a little goes a long way and I slowly build to the consistency and vibrancy I would like. Also, this product can settle into fine lines and winkles, so I definitely suggest using the product moderately and building up to product so avoid creasing.
The Billion Dollar Brows Smudge brush is a well made, flat, synthetic brush that you can use to apply or blend out your highlighter duo. I like to apply the highlighter duo with the pencil and then take the smudge brush to blend it all out. This brush is soft, but still dense enough to get the job done. It’s well made and packed nicely into the ferrule giving you lots of control over what you are blending and applying.
Last but not lease is the Pencil Sharpener. This sharpener is the perfect size to sharpen your Duo Highlighter, renewing the product of the pencil. It’s easy to use and sharpens nicely and precisely.
When it comes to brows, I really like the time I spend on them to be quick and effortless. The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit offers all the products you need to create quick, statement brows with little to no effort. It’s fast, easy to use and your brows will pretty much stay in place till you take them off. I really appreciate how well these work and I know it will be a part of my makeup arsenal for years to come.
