My first blog post

Hi future blog peeps (since no-one is following at the moment hehe).

Well here goes. I thought it appropriate to start my new blog with a new product which is:

E.l.f.'s 'Eyebrow Kit' in Dark, which contains a coloured gel and powder which ELF claims "Creates brows that are fuller, thicker, and more defined!"

This will be among a new studio line which launches in the U.K. at toward the end of July and this product will cost £3.50, which is slightly more expensive than their normal range where everything tends to cost around £1.50, but still a total bargain! This kit also comes in 'medium' and 'light' shade so you can choose one to best suit your hair colour.

The eyebrow kit itself is a sleek black compact with a mirror inside. I love it when products contain their own mirrors as i'm always losing my many little hand-held mirrors! Also contained is a double ended brush which has an angled end to help arch your brows with the gel and a normal brush end to use with the filling powder.

On the left is a pigmented dark brown coloured gel/wax which is used to define and shape your eyebrows and on the right is a medium brown shade powder which is used to set the brow gel and also to fill in any sparse areas of your eyebrows.
I currently use a brown eyebrow pencil to define my eyebrows then set them with a clear 'brow gel', which is like a clear mascara and helps to tame them by keeping the hairs in place, so I am excited to try this new product as i'm hoping the powder will give a softer looking finish. I will update with pictures when i've tried it and give my verdict on it then! Remember, not everyone will need to fill in their eyebrows, it's a personal choice. Although i naturally have very dark hair, my eyebrows are abit light in comparison and i prefer them to look darker as I also think this helps to make your eyes stand out more.
Anyway, much love and will blog again soon. Fingers crossed that this has all worked!

I just ordered from elf, but i wasn't sure about this. I'll probably get it next time as I too suffer from lighter than hair color brows.
