A Tarte-ish Brow Part 2- Tarte The Toolbox....

Monday, October 12, 2009

Happy Monday!!!

On Part 2 of "A Tarte-ish" Brow...I'm reviewing The Toolbox, a complete kit for brows. The good people over a Tarte sent me the color " Medium" for they were SOLD OUT of "Dark"...you'll see where this will make a difference.

The kit includes mirror, brow gel, mini brow pencil, mini tweezers, brow wax, brow powder and a mini slanted/angle brush.
It also included brow stencils to achieve the right shape for your brow...with instructions.

The instructions alone made me happy...you just don't get instructions with some products these days. lol!:)
I used Full Arch stencil as my shape. It goes a bit higher than my natural shape, but I would wear a "high" arch like that...I guess that's the drama in me!


But as you can see, in the natural light, the color, Medium, is all wrong. Its a grey, ash brown instead of the black brown I use. I wanted the try this so bad, I took what they had left!!! So the color choice is my fault.:(
Pros:
-I love the brow gel. No big reason. I'm an original brow gel girl from the 90s, when that was all I had to work with in the halls of Phelps.

-Compact size is tres cute. How did they fit all those goodies in the small container. Genius Tarte.

-Travel friendly, handbag friendly, and pretty pocket friendly for what you get....I would invest in my right shade of color.
Cons:

-The stencils were pointless for me. But, for someone who has no brows or little brows left OR need help with their brow shape, the stencils are a plus. My mom probably could used them since she has very little brow hair left.

-The tweezers were tight and hard to manage.

-The Medium shade was the wrong color for me.

- The hairs in the slanted/angle brush were too loose so I couldn't get the sharp line I like in the end of my brow shape.
Overall....I still want the Dark shade with a tighter brush.:)
