Eyebrows shape and frame your face, so fabulous eyebrows is a must for everyone, so I thought I’s start my Save Vs. Splurge series with eyebrow palettes.
The two palettes I chose where the Essence palette and the Sleek Dark palette.
SAVE: Essence – €3.29
The Essence palette comes with a light and a dark powder so is perfect for both fair and dark hair. This palette also comes with a small eyebrow brush and some very handy eyebrow stencils if you need some help shaping, it also comes with a step by step guide on how to shape you eyebrows perfectly.
SPLURGE: Sleek Dark – €9.99
This Sleek Dark palette comes in three different colours, Light, Medium and Dark. The palette contains a powder and a wax which is perfect for keep your eyebrows from straying, an angled brush a rounded brush, a small tweezers and a mirror.
VERDICT: I adored both palettes. While the Essence palette is perfect for a day look the wax in the Sleek palette gives a more dramatic eyebrow which is amazing for a night look. I did prefer the wax as I have very long eyebrows so it kept them in place perfectly but the same can be achieved with Essence brow gel. While both palettes come with brushes I prefer to use my own M.A.C angled brow brush as it’s thicker and much easier to apply both powder and wax with, however I did love the mirror and tweezers in the Sleek palette to ensure fabulous brows always! I recommend both palettes to everyone. They are perfect for light to dark eyebrows.
