Hello, blog fans! I hope your Monday has proven better than mine. My computer starting acting up last night and today, well, let's just say things haven't gone so well. Luckily, I've been able to kidnap (or computernap) my mom's computer for the time being. But that's not what you're interested in, it's the brows you're here for. Today is all about a new brand to me, Chella, and their Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Kit.
If like me, Chella is new to you, they're a cruelty-free brand with a bit of everything on offer- makeup, skincare, and a full range of brow products. Clearly, we're all about the brow products today. The Chella eyebrow kits come in six different shades, with something to suit all hair colours. While I have naturally black brows, I rarely sport my natural hair colour on my head so I prefer a dark brown for filling in my brows. As such, the Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Kit was my best bet.
The kit contains everything needed for perfected brows, but should you not want it all, Chella does offer all of the components individually. It's also nice for re-purchasing a favourite product.
The most important product of the kit is the Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Colour Pencil. The twist up pencil has a firm texture, but it applies through brows easily creating a natural fill. The pencil can create fine lines to mimic brow hair, and fill in larger sparse spots. The pencil stays put amazingly well (even without brow gel) and wears without smudging, flaking or transferring. The shade (swatched further below) has a great deep brown shade that is neither too warm or cool and should work on most skintones.
Gel is a must have if you have unruly brows that just won't stay put, or if you need your brows to be extra durable. The Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel works well for both purposes. It has a small spoolie applicator that perfectly brushes product through brows and brows only (as in not all over your face too.) The gel dries pretty quickly with a natural finish that lacks any crunchy feel or shiny finish.
To finish off brows, and any area of your face that might need a little pick me up, is the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil. The jumbo pencil has a matte formula and is available in four shades for skin tone ranging from light to deep. The creamy formula blends easily and gives a subtle, matte highlight. It's great for under the brow bone and even down the centre of the nose.
I love that Chella also includes a Dual Size Pencil Sharpener in the kit. It's not only super sharp and can sharpen the soft highlighter easily, bit it's also super neat as your shavings go into the case. Plus, it never huts to have an extra sharpener on hand.
Overall, I really love this kit! There are no unnecessary products and everything included works perfectly. What do you think? Could your brows use this kit or any of these products?
