Makeup Academy Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit Review






Make Up Academy Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit - £3.50

Hello Ladies, Hope you're all doing okay, I thought I would pop up another little review for you on my blog today, I recently featured this MUA brow kit in a collective beauty haul I did and I thought I would review it and give you ladies a bit more information about it. Firstly if you've read my blog for a while you will know I'm quite a lover of Make Up Academy as a brand and I think they have some pretty good products for a really good price. Anyway when I ran out of my Elf Eyebrow Kit a few weeks ago I knew that I needed to pick up a new eyebrow option and decided that this MUA one would be a pretty good shout. I really have been digging (haha!) filling in my eyebrows for over a year or so now and I really do think it helps to frame your face and make your face look much more sculpted and Kim Kardashian-esq. I personally really like my eyebrows, I was never one of those people who over-plucked mine because my mum would have literally stabbed me in the eye, so as soon as my eyebrows started becoming a bushy mess my mum started dragging me along to her eyebrow waxing and shaping appointments, and thank god she did. My eyebrows are the one thing on my face that I actually like, they're a pretty nice shape and I don't really have a lot of sparse area's and in all fairness I think on the eyebrow front I'm pretty swag, so swag in fact that I get a lot of people telling me they 'wish they had my eyebrows' and I also get a lot of strangers stopping me in the street to compliment them, which is probably the weirdest thing in the world. Anyway before I go off on a full eyebrow tangent I think I need to get back to the point, which is no matter how nice your eyebrows are I think they can always do with a bit of extra definition, it just helps to bring them on par with the rest of your makeup and if you're doing the whole 'sha-bang' with your makeup you don't want to be leaving out the eyebrows because frankly you'll just look a big fat mess, which is why I decided on buying this kit.

Within this eyebrow kit you get 3 eye brow shades, a white or clear eyebrow wax, a teeny tiny pair of tweezers and a double sided little angled brush so you can apply the product to your eyebrows on the go. I think that this kit has pretty much everything you could need in terms of filling in the brows and I like that it comes housed in a really nice quality plastic case with a fairly big mirror. I find that although this product was cheap the whole kit feels really sturdy and I feel like it would travel well. The mini tweezers and mini brush aren't the best quality in the world but that's just because they're small but I would happily use these whilst I was on the move and I think they're a really nice addition to this kit. 

I've been using the 'Pro-Brow Kit' with my Real Techniques Brow Brush and grooming the darkest shade - which is pretty much a perfect match for my eyebrows - through my eyebrows and I think it works pretty well. I have no complaints about this really but I am a bit unsure what the other colours in this kit are for, it says on the back that you should use the lightest shade as a highlight but to be honest the light brown which is the lightest shade just looks muddy underneath my brow so i'm not quite sure if I'm doing it right, I do like having the lighter eyebrow shade though because I think it'll be perfect if I want too define my brows without making them look to heavy or if i'm doing the whole 'no makeup, makeup look' and also if i'm doing a friends makeup who has lighter brows than me I think this would work really well. The wax in this kit is also quite useful for setting the brows in place, at first I wasn't too sure about this just because I've always used an eyebrow wax that already had colour in it but once you apply it to the brows it works pretty much the same and I didn't find that it left a white cast at all. 

Overall, I find that I actually really like this MUA pro-brow kit, I'm no eyebrow expert but for everyday defining the brows this seems to work really well for me and do everything I want it too. The only disappointment for me was the highlight shade within this palette but to be honest I have loads of highlight shades within my eye shadow collection and I would probably choose too only highlight the brows if I was doing an eye shadow look anyway. So yeah overall I would recommend this palette, it's cheap as chips and works pretty well for me!

Anyway thank you for reading & I'll catch up with you all really soon,
Lots of Love

  11. This has reminded me how badly I need to sort out my eyebrows - I've had a full fringe for a few months so pretty much just left them to their own devices but now I'm growing my fringe to the side again and they're resembling cater pillars atm :P I use a natural collection eye-shadow to fill mine in but I think it's slightly too dark now my hair is lighter so I might give this a try, it's something I've been wanting to try for a while but I was never really sure what all the shades are for! I like the idea of the wax for setting :)
    Love Holly x

    1. haha oh gosh that doesn't sound good at all Hol! Yeah do it :) I think the lighter shade would actually really suit your brows seeming as your hair is nice and blonde! :) yeah to be honest i'm still a bit confused why I need 3 shades but hey ho! I'm sure they'll come in handy for something! thank you for your lovely comments :) xxxx
