MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit

Like with many beauty bloggers, I spend quite a while on my eyebrows; shaping them until they are perfect. However sometimes, I can get quite tweezer happy and am left with an eyebrow with a slight gap in some cases. When MUA brought out their Eyebrow kit back in September, I was very eager to get my hands on it but it was only until now that I parted with my pennies as my nearest Superdrugs are constantly sold out of it.

The MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit comes packaged in MUA's standard black professional packaging. However I do find that this is very travel friendly which is ideal for a beauty blogger on the go. It's also very practical as it comes with a decent sized mirror, a pair of blunt-ish slant tweezers which is ideal for plucking a stray hair or two and a duo ended stiff slanted brush. It contains everything a girl could need for getting her eyebrows in perfect shape whilst on the go!

The kit contains two eyebrow shades which are two different shades of brown, a matte highlighter which could double up as another eyebrow shade for those with very light eyebrows and a setting wax. The idea behind it is that you use either one of the brow shades or mix them together to create a custom blend, apply it over the brows and set them with the settling gel, then using the highlighter shade to highlight the brows for a lift. The shades are very well pigmented but they do tend to produce quite a substantial amount of powder to fall out however they do apply with ease and blend into the skin without any problems at all. Once set with the gel, they last for roughly 6+ hours before any sign of fading can be noticed.

L-R is Darker shade swatched, lighter shade swatched and highlighter shade swatched.

I really do want to love this but I just find that it's a little too dark for my liking as I can only use the darkest powder because the lightest one does nothing and when mixed together, it doesn't look right. I also find that in some lights, when I've used this, my eyebrows have a slight red tone to it which doesn't look at all attractive. I've even found the wax to be rather flimsy and even Natural Collections' Lash Care Mascara in Clear can do a far better job of holding my brows in place. The reason why I haven't included a picture of what my eyebrows look like is because I'm sure I'll have a FOTD up soon where I've used it so you can get an idea of what it looks like. If I don't use this as an eyebrow kit, I'll probably use the three shades as eyeshadows instead.


  1. hmm i was going to get this earlier on because of their 35% off sale, but i decided against it. what do you use normally for your brows?
