Week of Product Reviews: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Auburn/Red

Welcome to a week of product reviews here on Livin' Vintage. I hope you enjoy!

Ever since dying my hair red, I have been meaning to get some new powder to fill in my brows with. After strolling the aisles at ULTA, I came away with NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Auburn/Red. I must say, I am quite smitten with this product! Not only does it give my brows a more auburn effect, making them blend better with my new hair color, the powder is long lasting and is very pigmented.

I also am in love with the brush the kit supplies. Up until now, I had been using a run-of-the-mill cheap-o eyebrow brush that got the job done. However, since using NYX's, I will never go back to my cheap-o brush. The bristles are stiff, much like on a child's paintbrush, but they hold onto the powder well and apply it to your brow in a wonderful fashion. My only complaint is that the handle is short, to accommodate compact packaging, but that really isn't that big of a deal.

I also like that this kit supplies some eyebrow gel and a lash brush. I don't use this feature of the kit much, but when I have used it, it has worked out great; setting the powder and the shape of my brows for the remainder of the day.

I can't say enough about this product! It also helps that it is pretty cheap ($4.99) without slacking on quality.

I have purchased the product discussed above and am not associated with NYX, nor was I compensated by any means for this review. This is my own personal opinion of the product.
