NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder [Review]

Eyebrow Cake Powder, ECP05 Brunette, brows, makeup

I came across the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder kit the other day while I was at the drugstore and because NYX is one of the affordable brands, I decided to try it.  Well, that and I've been doing my brows from the Urban Decay Naked Palette and the choices in there were a bit too warm toned for me.  It was OK, but I've been on the lookout for something more appropriate for a while.

The kit come with two shades of powder, a wax, an angled brush and a spoolie.

There were three colors available at the store I was in: Blonde, Brunette and Dark Brown.  I bought the Brunette color, which is the medium choice.  Don't worry if those colors don't work for you.  There are more colors to choose from on the NYX website.

The tools that come in this kit are teeny tiny.  The spoolie is ridiculous.  I mean I guess it's a good thing to have a little one in your makeup bag for touch-ups but I would just use a regular sized one at home.  The angled brush is thick so it's nice for applying the wax.  However, I used my normal angled brush that came in a set from Sephora to apply the powder.

Here's a super close up of my brows.  I really just fill in a few thin spots to make them a little more even.  I used just a tiny bit of the wax to keep the hairs in place.  It doesn't feel too gunky or anything but it does replace the powdery finish with a shiny sleek one.  I like that because having powdery eyebrows can seem a little weird in my opinion.

Overall I like this eyebrow kit from NYX.  It's super affordable from the drugstore and I really like the color.

If you do your brows, what products do you use?
Have you tried this one?

  1. I think I am going to have to pick up one of those kits. My unruly, Italian brows could use a little help! I never thought to use wax to tame them before. Thanks for the tip ;)

    1. No prob! Yeah this is the first time I've ever used wax on them but I like it. I just use a little bit so they stay still but not so much that they get stiff. If you try it let me know how it works out. :)

  2. I picked this up to try after reading your post. Ive used it once...so far results are good! I like the wax and the brunette color matches pretty well.
