Bebe Poshe Sexy Brow Shaper
I bought this close to two years ago at half price or at least 30% discount because the Watsons I went to was clearing stock to prepare for renovation closure. Also, I saw that this brand has cute packaging, and I wanted to try out a brow powder after watching Destiny Godley here.
Before that, I was afraid to use powder because I didn't have a good brush, and I also think my hands aren't the most steady (to draw sleek straight lines).
The little palette this product comes in a almost a perfect square, very angular, and adorned with beauty old English flower-chandelier motifs. It opens and locks well; has a nice click.
The powders themselves are soft, smooth, and incredibly pigmented. They feels like any Urban Decay eyeshadow, very luxurious and high-end.
In fact, they are so pigmented and easy to blend that they can be used as eyeshadows!
For brows, I normally only use the dark brown colour because my hair is jet black, and I simply don't need the lighter brown.
Note: The purpose of the light brown is for you to mix with the dark brown to alter the brown to be lighter. It is good for people who change their hair colour frequently, or people with hair lighter than black.
But sometimes, I do use these powders as eyeshadows.
The lighter brown is just about the colour of my skin, it blends into nothing, and so is good as a blending colour for me, to even out other colours or to blur the edges of other strong eyeshadows.
The darker brown is great for putting in the outer-V and contouring the eye.
Besides, the dark brown is actually amazing for contouring the nose and cheeks as well!!
Use any thin, stiff, angled eyeliner brush to apply. My favourite is by Lauren Luke. I do prefer her angled brush over M.A.C angled eyeliner brush.
This does come with an ah-may-zing brow brush, but I dropped mine down the sink-hole. My heart totally broke and I actually went to buy a whole new palette just so I can have that brush again. Trust me, I own a lot of proper makeup brushes, and that one in the palette is better than all my proper brow brushes.
The usual price is $25 (if I remember correctly). But try to catch a 20% discount and you will find it much more affordable.
Furthermore, the amount of product is huge, and if you use it for brows only, it will last forever. In fact, even if you use it as eyeshadow, it would take a good one year and more to finish.
There is mica and talc. So if you are very sensitive to these, don't put it on your face. As a brow powder, it should be mostly okay.
Perfect! Superb pigmentation, soft and smooth. Offers multiple types of use, does well as matte eyeshadow and contour powder!
