I tried using a few of my eyeshadows for filling in but I couldn’t quite get the hang of it. I may have ended up looking like I used a paint roller for application. Powders just give me too much freedom, I just keep at it until I have this huge square block. Yikes. But after a Benefit Brow event where I saw they used this brow kit duo on me, I was motivated more than ever to give powders another try.
Benefit brow zings kit
Benefit Brow Zings comes with a darker shade wax, a lighter powder, a mini tweezer, a mini hard angled brush and blending brush. The wax is quite thick and heavy which you apply as a base for the powder to ‘stick’ on to. I find that using too much of the wax may result to a clumpy mess especially if my brows have grown out and are a bushy mess on their own. When this is the case, I just use the wax to outline my brows and blend them out a bit so as to not look so stark.
The powder, though, is amazing. It’s a good match with my current hair color and I find it smooth, pigmented and easy to apply. I do have to go over my brows with a colored brow gel afterwards or else it just looks so off – with my natural jet black brows sitting on top. The angled brush can actually do the blending itself but I love that they included a separate blending brush because it does the job much faster and more efficiently. I also like the inclusion of mini tweezers for easy stray-hair emergencies (because who carries around a full-sized one with them?!).
The only bump I encountered was difficulty in shaping my brows evenly (more of a weakness in technique than the product) — which I don’t experience as much when using pencils or brow gel cremes. I think it has to do with the mini angled brush which I’m not so adept at using. It may actually also be because of my uneven brows.
But the finish? Very natural compared to using some pencils or gel-cremes that tend to look too defined, even HD, depending on application. I like the defined look, too – but for everyday, filling in is all I need. The downside of using brow powders is longevity – it can easily be erased or wiped off which is where the wax part of this brow kit comes in to solve that issue. All in all, this all-in-one kit is a good piece of investment for those serious about their brows.
If you’re wondering how Brow Zings compares to the Sleek Brow Kit – which my sister and I both used before – I did find a few differences. The Sleek wax tends to dry out quickly that I deemed it unusable after only 5 months leaving me to use the powder alone. Also, the wax becomes darker the more I dug through it (oxidized maybe?).
Also, the brushes in the Sleek set are okay but the wax & powder seem to stick onto them and dry them out easily. My sister didn’t wash hers regularly and she had to replace them because they were unusable. The price difference between the two is also quite significant. I didn’t repurchase the Sleek Brow Kit, though. But I would consider repurchasing the Brow Zings should I run out.
