Save Vs. Splurge – Eyebrow Palette

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.


Sleek palettes are available from the Beauty Emporium here

Essence palettes are available from many chemists, Penny’s and Dunnes Stores
