Anastasia 5-Element Brow Kit

March 6, 2011

Anastasia 5-Element Brow Kit ($65) Anastasia’s essential brow products sold together in one convenient starter kit. Ideal for shaping and maintaining your brows at home using the Anastasia brow shaping system endorsed and approved signature items. Includes Precision Tweezers, Brow Powder Duo, Brow Stencils (Set of Five Shapes), Mini Duo Brush #7 and Anastasia’s Best-Selling Clear Brow Gel.

Available in 5 shades:

  • Golden Blonde – Suggested for golden and strawberry blonde hair
  • Ash Blonde / Taupe – Suggested for light to dark blonde hair
  • Medium Ash / Medium Brown – Suggested for light to medium brown and silver hair
  • Brunette / Dark Brown – Suggested for medium brown to black hair
  • Strawburn – Suggested for auburn hair

First, choose the Stencil that is most suited for your distinct facial features. There are 5 different types  that have different arches and eyebrow length. Using the tweezers, remove hair outside the stenciled area. The tweezers are good quality comparable to Tweezerman. Then, using The Duo Angled Brush, fill in the arch with the Brow Powder Duo. The brush is double sided allowing for you to apply just the right amount of powder precisely onto the brow and the spool ended side lets you remove any excess powder. The Brow Powder Duo lets you customize your shade to match your brows to get a natural looking brows. Lastly, apply the Clear Brow Gel by using the brush on the applicator in gentle, upward strokes to condition and hold the shape of the brow all day.

Recommendation: This kit gives you everything you’d need to create the perfect brows in a convenient zippered pouch. To get the most of the kit you’ll need to make sure you get the right Brow Powder Duo. I had trouble at first to get the right brow shade so it may take some time until you figure how much of each color you need. I really like the quality of the tweezers, they are worth $20 already. The only thing that would make this kit complete would be trimming scissors.
