If you are looking for a good affordable eyebrow powder, NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder is a good option! I have tried to use eyebrow pencils, eyebrow gels and other brand eyebrow powders, but I always find myself reaching for NYX powder. At first I picked up one color, but then I got two more color combinations.
Now the swatches: 1st picture without wax and 2nd – with.
There is something I would like to point out about color range. As you can tell from the swatches, Dark brown/Brown doesn’t differ that much from each other. Brown side is just a little bit lighter and warmer, but when you apply it on the eyebrows – I can’t see much of a difference. Even more when you mix it with wax. Taupe color looks a little bit cooler than Brown tones, but when used with wax – pretty close. Also Ash and Grey are pretty close. I would say that Ash tone is the best for the most natural look if you have grey toned eyebrow hair.
About the product itself – I really like it. When you use it without wax you will still be able to draw a LINE (even though it is like a powder, with a very precise angled brow brush you can easily draw a line) and you will have a very soft and natural looking eyebrows. When mixed with wax, color, of course, will be more visible and darker, but still – you can easily make them look natural. It is so easy to work with this product 🙂 It lasts all day on your eyebrows and won’t fade.
The only down side – angled brush that is included. Eyebrow spoolie works good (I think it can not work bad :D), but the angled brush is so harsh, synthetic and thick that it is hard to work with it. I would suggest to use a very soft angled brush instead 🙂
I hope this review will help you find the best shade and decide – whether it is worth to buy it.
Have a good day! 🙂
