Before this i was using the Elf brow kit (which i was satisfied with). But i have had good experiences with Sleek products in the past so i decided to buy this when i hit pan on my elf one.The main difference i found between the two , apart from the more sturdy packaging of the Sleek brow kit was the color and pigmentation.
The Elf brow kit had under tones of very deep reddish brown which didn't appear to blend in with my black brow hair in sunlight.This one though is sort of in the taupe family and blends in with darker colored hair better in my opinion.It is also the more pigmented of the two and not too much product has to to be used to get the desired results.
The brow powder is very soft and it has to be handled carefully , otherwise the powder comes loose and a lot of product goes to waste.The kit contains powder and wax combo along with a tweezer and two brushes for application.My first impression of the small brushes was not good but once i used them , i had to change my mind.The small handles do hamper application but in an emergency situation where its a choice between your fingers and these brushes ;)....... they are not so bad.
Till next time......
