I admit, I’m no make-up expert. I always leave the house with just face powder and lipstick on. But I envy girls with well-made brows and often wish I have those, too. Well, I tried fixing my brows once with an eyebrow pencil, but I wasn’t pleased with the result. Lol! After that unfortunate incident, I’ve never tried experimenting with my brows again until I was asked to review Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder a few days ago.

Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder, Php150.00

The Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder comes in two variants, #1 (lighter shades, brown and gray) and #2 (darker shades, medium brown and black). Inside the case is a small slanted eyebrow brush that you can use to apply the product on your brows.

According to Fashion 21 website, this product is best applied wet for a longer lasting effect. Because I wanted better-looking brows this time, I enlisted the help of my professional make-up artist friend Apple of MGE Applestyle Salon to help me do my brows right.

After application of Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder (color: medium brown)

This is me before and after application of Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder. My friend used medium brown color for my brows to match my hair color. And here are my friend and I’s observations about the product.

Pros
• It’s small, light and compact.
• It’s convenient to bring everywhere.
• It’s quite affordable.
• It’s easy to apply.
• It’s highly pigmented.
• It has more colors now than before, so more choices for us girls.
• It lasts for hours.

Cons
• It needs a better eyebrow brush. According to Apple, the brush provided in this brow set is buhaghag such that the bristles spread apart when you apply the brow powder. This makes it hard to spread the brow powder evenly and makes the entire process of fixing the brows longer. He used a dense and bigger angled brow brush, instead of the one provided in the case.
• The case might break easily because it’s made entirely of plastic, so be careful not to drop it.
• Make sure you also have a compact mirror because this product doesn’t have one.

Overall Assessment
Apple did a very good job of giving me fuller brows with Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder, making me look a few years younger. He also said that this product is comparable to high-end brands that he uses on his clients. The only significant downside to this product is the eyebrow brush. He suggested buying a better brow brush if you’re the type who constantly needs to fix your brows. Overall, the Fashion 21 Duo Eyebrow Powder is a very good product that’s easy on the budget.

  1. Wow!!! So nice outcome sis.. Me too, I don’t put effort in putting make ups everytime I go out but yes I envy girls who greatly outlined their eyebrow. Wondering how did they do it beautifully 😊😊😊 I think of it more of a skill and the right brand of eyebrow pencil and make ups.

  2. I’m not into make-up too, I tried using eyebrow pencil and hindi rin ako natuwa sa result. So I don’t know if I can use eyebrow powder. 🙂

  3. i’m not high maintenance but it feels good to be made up from time to time. however, i don’t know how to apply make-up, i guess i will need to attend workshops muna, baka magmukha akong panda! haha!

  4. Never knew there was such a thing as eyebrow powder! LOL! The only ones I have in my kit are eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner and face powder. Though lately I have been leaving the house without make up because I no longer have the time to apply it as I am always running late for work. Not a make-up junkie myself. Heck, I don’t even know how to fix my own eyebrows. LOL!

  5. Hi Sis, I wish you’ve taken close up of your eyes without glassess. I can’t see the make up on you from afar.
    I am a simple male up girl too. Im fixed with light foundation, powder, eyeliner and lipstick. I use blush on and eyeshadow for special occassions.

  6. I’m in the process of learning how to do my eyebrows as well. And I use brow powder kit, too, pero ibang brand. But it looks almost the same with what fashion 21 offers. 🙂 I agree about the brush part. The one provided in my kit din is too small, pero napagtyatyagaan ko na kasi hindi naman super buhaghag. But my mommy friends na expert na sa pagme-make-up says na it’s better if mas mahaba ang handle ng eyebrow brush na gamit. 🙂 Btw, I watch tutorials lang on youtube on how to make kilays on fleek. Hihi.

  7. I don’t usually wear makeup unless I have to. And I’m not sure if I know how to use eyebrow powder. Lol. My goal actually is to get perfect shaped brows yung tipong kahit walang makeup on-the-go na sya 🙂

  8. Eyebrows are important because they frame the face 🙂 Investment na yata talaga ang kilay these days. Glad that there are inexpensive choices, lalo na pag emergency pagpunta sa mall ng walang kilay haha!

  9. Yes, the brush that comes with cosmetic products can make or break the product! It can have the best formulation in the world yet without a good brush,it’s nothing.

  10. It is also this month that I was able learn the use and how to apply that eyebrow colors. Good thing I have a MUA friend who is more than willing to help. I may consider this brand too if I’ve finished the one I recently bought.

  11. I normally just use eyebrow pencil to fix my brows. I’ve never tried eyebrow powder before so I’d need a lot of practice to use this right.

  12. I’ve been seeing a lot of people sharing photos of fashion 21 products. Makes me want to try the brand. It’s nice that locally made products are being noticed.

  13. Gosh so many make up things to remember! I don’t really do much with brows except to pluck and then line them a bit. Sounds like I should consider eyebrow powder!
