Japonesque Brow Kit: In the Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve been loving this little Brow Kit by Japonesque, one of a number of items from the brand’s ‘In the Pink’ collection in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Slim and compact in pink faux snakeskin, it contains everything you will need for preening & perfecting your brows.

In the Kit

  • Mini compact with two brow powders & wax; two applicators, a teeny slanted brush & mini spoolie
  • Clear lash gel to keep your brows in place
  • Slanted tweezers with a hand-filed tip for precision
  • Brow stencils: light, natural or medium arch - love these as they are silicone, so really flexible & easy to use

Two shades of brown - a dark cocoa shade or mid golden brown - can be used separately or blended to create your perfect shade. I assumed both would be too dark for me, but they actually work ok.

Swatches

Swatched over the wax (left) and dry (right).  The colour is buildable and can be used with a light touch for subtle definition or much more intensely if you wish.  Combing the brows with the spoolie helps disperse the powder evenly, softens any harsh lines and gives a more natural look.

Applied

I tend to use the lighter shade, then add a little of the darker brown with a very light touch to define the arch and ends (though I no longer have the ends as a heavy handed beautician whisked them off!).

For every item purchased from its In the Pink range, Japonesque will donate £1 to Breast Cancer Awareness Research.

Japonesque Brow Kit* is available in the UK at HQHair for £21
