Review: Fashion 21 Eyebrow Duo

120 pesos, half the price or less of those eyebrow kit available in the market. I hurriedly grab this and paid it at the counter. My nichido brow pencil in medium brown looks reddish on me. It screams FAKE and UNNATURAL! I decided to give this a shot.  I love trying local products that are really budget friendly..


What I like about this product:
  • The price!! 120 pesos for a brow kit is a steal but this is the only thing I like about it because the product is not good at all!

What I hate about it:
  • This is very sheer. The color pay off is so poor.
  • The brush that comes with it is not really useful! 
  • The product itself does not adhere really well on my brows. I have swiped a lot of times on my brow but nothing dramatic happened. Applying this is a waste of time!
  • It is very powdery too. 

This is my bare brow. I am not fond of my brows, honestly. They are very thin and I usually have a hard time fixing them. I am envious of those girls gifted with thick brows. They look more attractive and younger plus thick brows provides more protection for your eyes against the sweat and dust.. Too bad, I aint gifted at all. I specifically wanted a taupe brow pencil but I cannot find one from our local brands. Any recommendations?


Here is the picture with Fashion 21 Eyebrow Duo:

The eyebrow duo has a very light coverage and after a lot of swiping it just gives me a natural look. I am so frustrated.:C

This is a swatch of  the brow duo. I already swiped that thrice and look how light the colors are. I will never buy this product again. 




Right now, I will be making this product work.. I will be using this together with my All Natural Face Eyeshadow Primer to make the color more vibrant and the angled brush that comes with it.ALl bought from ETsy.com. Next buy will prolly be Nichido brow kit  or the Skinfood brow kit .

  3. Try Etude House's dear. :) It's also cheap but get the Black one instead of the gray one because the gray one is rather sheer.

  9. i purchased this few years back and walang lalabas na kulay sa kilay ko. sayang kasi i really love the darker shade because it looks like grayish and i have been looking for gray eyebrow color for twenty million years already.

  14. Donna,
    I'm sorry it hadn't worked out the way you wanted it to. I'm not too good with brow powders but revlon has a really good one that comes with a wax, and two colors.

    The wax coating helps keep them in place. May be worth a shot someday~

  15. ooh my friend swears by this, I mean she uses it and it looks great. I personally use fanny serranos eyebrow kit though, and it works great for me. You have better brows than me, you should see my face naked haha. I dont like pencils as much cause they really do tend to look fake, the only eyebrow pencil that i like is M.A.C.'s lingering but its quite expensive and lasts me around a month (max!!)
