Kiko Eyebrow Expert Styling Kit & Wax Fixing Pencil


This little Kiko brow kit is cute, compact and great value, equipped with a mirror, two powders and a tinted wax… a clever idea as you can opt to use the wax alone or topped up with colour for more intensity.  It also includes a dinky spoolie, angled brush and super sharp little slanted tweezers.


How to use

Removing any strays with the tweezers is actually something I need to do long before applying my make-up as my skin really reddens when I do this, so I must allow cool down time!  As I result I very rarely tweeze, but have had a few HD Brow treatments which I’ll post about soon (not what I expected I must admit!).

So I start with a quick comb through my brows using the spoolie (the mascara-like wand) to tidy hairs into place before adding a light slick of wax. As I’m so fair, this alone is almost adequate for me, but for extra definition and shape I do like to add a little powder, especially on sparse areas using the little angled brush. 

That’s it folks!

Sorry for swatching the shades in the opposite order that they appear in the palette, dur… but I’ve labelled them anyway.  As you can see, the dark powder isn’t really all that dark, though intensity of course increases when applied over the wax.

Must admit I find a pencil the quickest and easiest way to do my brows on a daily basis and have remained loyal to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz for a long time, but when I want to make more of an effort or for special occasions I do like kits like this one.  Kiko’s gives its more expensive counterparts a run for their money and the dinky make-up bag size is a real bonus.  It comes in two shades: 01 for dark chestnuts and browns and 02 for chestnuts, reds and blonds, which I have.

The Eyebrow Wax Fixing Pencil does exactly what it says on the tin and is a great way to tidy brows without adding colour, or for using alongside your existing brow powder or under/over eye shadow for a well groomed brow! 

I’m impressed with Italian brand Kiko so far… I’ve also reviewed the eye & lip products here & nail polish here.

Kiko Eyebrow Expert Styling Kit costs £13.50 & the Eyebrow Wax Fixing Pencil, £6.50*.

Do you have a ‘brow routine?!’
