I never used to give a damn about my eyebrows. They were the last thing I ever worried about on my face because I have so little eyebrow hair that I felt they may as well be invisible. With stronger brows being the in-thing, I started taking my “brow health” much more seriously. I am still very much a newbie when it comes to doing anything with my brows so thank God for Billion Dollar Brows and kits like the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit ($34.99 USD) that break it down for me step by step and product by product. Billion Dollar Brows specializes in one thing – you guessed it, BROWS and is the “brow child” of Natalie and Bob Plain.
This is a kit with a universal brow pencil that works for both blondes and brunettes so it’s one kit for all! Each Best Sellers Kit comes with full sizes of: the Universal Brow Pencil, Brow Duo Pencil, Smudge Brush and Brow Gel all of which total a $68 value.
Universal Brow Pencil: Works with all skin tones and hair colours and was smooth to apply without me having to tug or “warm up the wax” of the pencil. It is a twist-up pencil that promises to stay sharp for precise brows every time. I just used quick short strokes to fill in my sparse areas. I probably could have used a heavier hand when I look back at the photos.
Brow Duo Pencil: This is a product I would not have expected to see, but I guess it does make sense to have a brow highlighter to bring attention to your now fabulous brows. If you haven’t already highlighted your brow bone with an eyeshadow, this super creamy, blendable highlighter will do the trick. The concealer end was also very creamy, but I found that neither the highlighter nor the concealer lasted for very long on my skin as it rubbed off quite easily and never seemed to set.
Smudge Brush: I didn’t read the instructions quite right and didn’t know that this brush was for applying creamy cosmetics such as the brow duo pencil and was happily using it on my actual brows. The synthetic bristles are very soft and quite perfect for smoothing out creamy consistencies. I almost want to use it for cream eyeshadows too.
Brow Gel: I totally needed a good brow gel! Once I was happy with my brows, I coated them with brow gel and did not experience any flaking. All of my brow hairs were in the right direction and all strays controlled!
I definitely could have gone a little crazier with my brows, but brows really make a difference! Now have some fun with them!
Final Verdict: Billion Dollar Brows has a number of different kits that cater to your brow needs. The Best Sellers Kit is a great kit for people who have their basic brow shape down, but if you are needing help with shaping, I’d probably recommend the Take Back Your Brows Shaping Kit. My favourite products from this kit would have to be the Universal Brow Pencil, as I felt the colour was a great match, and the Brow Gel, as it made my eyebrows looked groomed, but not flaky.
The instructions in the welcome booklet were fairly simplistic and I actually would have liked an accompanying video showing how to use the products with the kit since eyebrows are still fairly new to me. I don’t think I would be alone in that sentiment and even though there are a ton of YouTube videos that teach you all about eyebrows, it would have been nice to have one right on the Billion Dollar Brows website ready to go.
The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit is now available at Kohl’s.
