MUA Brow Kit review

Until a few months ago, I wasn't really bothered by how my eyebrows looked - obviously I plucked them like all girls but I definitely didn't see the point in filling them in. Also, when asking about brow kits, I had always been recommended the Benefit Brow Zings. While Benefit is a brand I admire and love, at £22.50, the product was far too expensive for me to buy on a whim and not knowing whether I would like it or use it. However, I was told that the MUA Brow Kit is pretty similar and at £3.50 it was a much more affordable product so I thought I would give it a go!
 (Forgot to take a picture of the product on it's own before use and it looks awful now so this will have to do - sorry!)

As you can just about see in the picture, the Brow Kit includes a set of small tweezers, an angled brush, two shades of brow powder, a lighter, highlighting shade and a setting gel.
I have to admit that I have only used the tweezers once and I find them too small, but they are a nice addition to the kit. I really like the large mirror and the stiff brush, which make application really easy.
I use the lighter of the two brow powders, even though my hair is on the darker side. I think once you apply the powder to your eyebrows it does appear darker than in the pan.  I don't really use the highlighting shade much though. 
Once applied, my eyebrows do tend to stay in place for the day but I do re-apply if I am going out in the evening.
I have had the kit since October and the shade of brow powder which I use and the setting gel are starting to run out, after almost daily use. 

The only downside I can think of is the size - with three powders, the gel and tools it is rather large. Also, seeing as I only use one powder and the gel, the rest is a bit redundant... it's a shame we can't buy the shades separately! (However, as this was the first time I bought the kit I am glad that it all came together because I think I would have bought the darker shade!).

Overall, such a great product and for £3.50 you really can't go wrong! 100% recommend, and will definitely be repurchasing.
