You may think it would be the other way round, but blonde eyebrows can be trickier to deal with than darker ones. My brunette and dark-haired friends find choosing the best products and achieving the right shape fairly easy, whereas as a blondie I’m sometimes a bit stuck. I’m scared to over-pluck my brows and end up with nothing left, and filling them in involves standing back from the mirror every 2 seconds to make sure they’re not way too dark.
When I spot a brow product made for blondes, I’m always intrigued as to how it would work for me. When the team from Shavata sent me their Brow Perfector kit to try out, I was thrilled to see it had a dedicated blonde section within it!
The kit is divided up into 3 shades, and also contains two mini brow brushes for a quick and easy application. Although some people would argue that two of the three shades wouldn’t get used, I actually think it’s a pretty good idea. Personally, I haven’t changed my hair colour in forever, but for those who do the kit is perfect. I believe in matching your brows to your hair colour (dark brows with blonde hair have never done it for me, and vice versa) so it give you that flexibility too.
The shadows are super creamy, but act almost like a powder when applied. My usual brow routine involves both a powder and a setting gel, so this was like two steps in one. I don’t like a heavy finish to my brows, and the fewer products I can use on them the better! I snapped a quick ‘before’ shot, and compared it to my brows afterwards. FYI: the top photo is ‘before’, and the bottom one is ‘after’.
I think the results are super natural (not supernatural…that would be a rather different review!) and match my brow’s actual shade very well. I’m not looking for a heavy, drawn-on look and the Shavata kit allows me to work with the sparseness and colour of my brows to get my perfect finish. As for the brush itself, although it’s small and a little fiddly at first the precision it allows for is excellent. I’m really chuffed with the product as a whole!
The Shavata Brow Perfector retails for £19.50 – this seems expensive, but I can imagine it lasting for a good couple of years (in my case, probably much longer). I will definitely be using the kit in my own make up routine, especially when I’m going for that relaxed, natural look.
