Review: Billion Dollar Brows

Disclaimer: I was sent these products from Billion Dollar Brows, with no compensation other than the products to test and review. The following post consists of my honest thoughts & opinions about the product!

If you had asked me 5 or 6 months ago, I wouldn’t have known the first thing about makeup (okay well maybe the very basics, but that’s it.) However, I can now fend for myself pretty well thanks to the efforts put forth by two of my bridesmaids during all of our pre-wedding prep!

A huge part of my new knowledge involves filling in my eyebrows! I’m not gutsy enough to go thick and/or dark with them, but a little more definition has been life changing (well, maybe not. But I do feel more ‘put together’ when I attempt to do my brows, even if they aren’t perfect.)

Anyway, I was super excited to be given the opportunity to try/review Billion Dollar Brows’ Best Sellers Kit and the 60 Second Brow kit, since slowly but surely I’m figuring this makeup thing out! I think my favorite part of both kits is that they’re good for people with both light and dark brows…though I’m not sure I’ve 100% got a handle on the pencil included in the Best Sellers Kit – that’s my fault though. The only eyebrow filler I’ve used up to this point is a brow pomade, which is similar to the powder in the 60 second kit – so I’m just more comfortable using that one!

As a relative newbie to the eyebrow world, I would have appreciated a bit more of a ‘how to’ included with the best sellers kit – there lots of pieces that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with off the bat. Luckily Google has allllll the answers to every question you can think of, and I’ve made it work! Now the only thing I need is my friend Olivia to get my eyebrows under control a bit. Or I could get them done professionally, but I mostly just want to see my friend! 🙂

Brows aren't perfect, but they're pretty darn good I'd say.

Pros:

60 second kit is super easy to use!

Spoolie brushes included in both kits. If I don’t have time to do anything else, I try to at least “brush” my eyebrows before going out. Even that makes a difference!

The pencil in the best sellers kit doesn’t need to be sharpened – woohoo!

Cruelty free, and based on a quick Google, I’m pretty sure the products are Vegan.

Cons:

 

I wasn’t 100% sure how to use the best sellers kit at first- mainly just what order to use them in! But again, that’s just me being a relative newbie 🙂

I think it would be a skosh better if there were light and dark options of the pencil.

And with that, I’m going to help get the house ready for Christmas dinner…I can already hear (…I mean smell?) the cheesy potatoes calling my name. Merry Christmas!
