Product Review: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder

Hey cuties! If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you'd know that since I'm blonde, my eyebrows are pretty much translucent. Have you ever see anyone without eyebrows? Yeah, it's pretty weird looking. But! *dramatic pause* Target now has NYX products! I don't have a CVS where I live so I never got the chance to try anything from them, but now I do!

Okay, let me just say that I'm new to doing my eyebrows, and let me tell you, they make a huge difference. At first I started out with a pencil, then a powder, then pencil and powder, pencil and powder and brow gel. But at last, there is a product with everything that you need! Including a little brush, spooly, two eyebrow powders, and some clear wax. I'm always worried about my eyebrows. Like if their too dark, not dark enough, or if they aren't even. But I can just chuck this in my bag and whatever I want to touch up, it's right at my fingertips.

The colors are great because they don't look too harsh for me (the lighter one, not the darker one). But what I love is that the color does not change throughout the day. With my past eyebrow products, the color of my brows would fluctuate and it annoyed me. The wax does keep the powder in place and it hardly fades. But, it does make your brows a little glossy for a while. Eyebrows aren't supposed to be glossy, they're supposed to be hairy. But there is no way I'll skip this step because I need my eyebrows to stay on.

-Nice colors
-Comes with everything
-Long lasting

-Wax can be glossy

Overall, I love this stuff. I'm happy with my first NYX purchase. I'm going to continue using this for a while and maybe pick up some other things from NYX, like their blushes. A lot of people rave about their blushes and I saw some pretty colors at the store. Let me know what NYX products you like and if you've tried this product! See you next time!
