Bobbi Brown Brows

Bobbi Brown, Brow displayBobbi Brown just revamped her brow offering a bit. She introduced two brow kit compacts, and repackaged her Natural Brow Shaper creams (they’re in shorter tubes, so you won’t confuse them with your mascara).

When I first saw this display on counter, I joked to a sales associate, “those look like my favorite eyeshadows.” “Actually,” he said, and he turned the kits over — oh, they ARE some of my favorite eyeshadows.

The brow kits are $45 each; each contains two shadows, a tiny brush, a mirror, and a pair of mini tweezers. The tweezers were made exclusively for Bobbi by the very posh Swiss company Rubis. I’ve heard these tweezers cannot be sharpened, but these kits are a permanent addition to the line, so you’ll get a new pair when you repurchase.

I asked another sales associate how best to use the kits. She said that you could simply choose the single shade that provided your best match. But the true brow artist may prefer to use the deeper shade to define (the bottom edge of your brow) and the lighter shade to fill. She confessed to being something of a brow-maniac herself.

The Natural Brow Shaper (a gel/cream product with a mascara-wand applicator) is $20. It comes in five colors: clear, which I didn’t swatch, plus four tints according to hair color. My sales associate said that if you have unruly brows that need taming, you may prefer the gel. If you have sparse brows, brows with not a lot of color, or greys that you want to cover, you may also prefer the gel. My lovely sales associate (as a brow-maniac), likes to use the gel to set her powder.

Here are the swatches. (I love a neutral rainbow.)

    Hi Karla,

    Nice swatching!
    The brow kit is super cute and practical too.
    With the extra magnifying mirror, it makes it so easy to do a quick touch up with the tweezers. The applicator for the Brow Gel has a nice pointed shape at the end for a more precison application. I think the ladies are going to love these new brow products from Bobbi!

    I don’t get why this kit is so expensive. I was confused before and now finding out they are just the regular eyeshadows has me even more baffled. I could just buy the shadows themselves seperate and pay less and get more product. If I pop them in a 3 pan palette they are just as portable. No they wouldn’t be altogether in a cute little kit, but that is not worth $45 it’s just basic brow powder/eyeshadows. Is it the tweezers? I don’t get it.

    I have used Saddle for my sparse eyebrows with the Natural Brow Shaper in Blonde. It works so well for me. Saddle has no warmth to it (no brow colour should), and the greyish colour with a very slight brownish tinge to it matches my natural brow colour 100%. I have the full sized version, I’ve used it every single day for 9 months and I’ve hardly made a dent. The brow shaper i just very nice. I ought to get the Mahogany shade for winter although I do find it a touch too warm.

    I’ll have to check this out. I like the idea of a magnifying mirror in the compact.

    Also – if, in fact, the tweezers are anything like the “regular” Rubis tweezers, that is probably one reason why the price is so high. I’ve been using Rubis tweezers for years – they are MUCH better than Tweezerman – I pay about $32 a pair.
