If you’ve got a good set of brows on you, the rest of your face kind of
falls into place. Before I discovered the power of a full and
perfectly-arched brow, I spent years trying to make the rest of my face
work with only a smidgin of hairy goodness; there was something not
quite right. After I was well and truly educated on the benefit of a
decent eyebrow pencil and the artistry associated with plucking, I’ve
never looked back – I’ve even invested in eyebrow tattoos to ensure they
look as full and even as possible. Now I can’t leave the house without filling in my brows; even when I’m totally makeup free or have a giant spot, it’s my brows that I’m most concerned with preening in order to bring my face to life. Although I have a huge portfolio of premium brands that I turn to on a regular basis, it’s great to find a budget buy that does the job just as well. Collection are great for affordable makeup staples, little treats and on-trend shades, but their latest eyebrow launch illustrates that they’re also one to be taken seriously when it comes to quality purchases too; these little palettes are blooming fabulous – and they’re only £3.99!
Available in two shades (blonde and brunette – although the colours provided in each are incredibly similar,) each palette includes three shades of eyebrow powder, a double-ended applicator brush and clear brow mascara. The clear mascara contains a precise plastic brush that ensures brows are brushed and styled perfectly, without overloading them with product; I often find these kind of tools cover my brows in too much goop to do anything with, but the fine plastic bristles pick up the smallest amount to subtly coat hairs and keep them in place. The double-ended brush is surprisingly good too, eradicating my fear of budget applicators! The bristles are soft, even, precise and pick up just the amount of product to apply easily – the angled edge is great for the inner corners, while the rounded tip is perfect for filling in sparse areas.
All three colours from each palette are totally workable, providing a triple hit that can be used individually or together to blend a really natural finish. The powder stays put all day without budging, being completely comparable to one of my Benefit faves that I’ve used for years. I’m a bit of an eyebrow snob and so wasn’t expecting to love these little palettes – but I really do. They’re great quality, look fab, provide the results I need and are totally affordable too. What more could you want for less than a fiver?
The Collection eyebrow kits are available in two shades (blonde and brunette,) priced £3.99. Buy online or in Boots and Superdrug stores nationwide.
