bdb: Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit and 60 Seconds Beautiful Brows Kit #Review #bdbrows

DSC_0642

I give my brows attention when it comes to grooming and thankfully I never over groomed them, so my beauty routine was a little pencil here and there and some clear eyebrow gel to allow them to set neatly. With eyebrows being the “it thing” this year when it comes to magnifying how they look, well you know how people over plucked in the 90″s? Well, in 2015 some girls are guilty of over doing it when it comes to filling in and defining. Too much of a good thing…….well, it tends to ruin it. I have lately heard over and over from my Husband on what is up with the caterpillar eyebrow look and he is perplexed by what some people have done to their brows. When I was accepted to the bdb campaign, I admit I did not want to be one of those people that look like they have pets for brows.

I have always shunned anything that says 5 minute face-lift or 60 seconds to this and that. It always made me think of gimmicks and I’ll be honest that when the kit arrived, my first thought was a pencil is so much easier and faster. Then I tried the kits. See, now I insert footy in mouth for sharing my thoughts!

60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit-
Let me remove foot, so I can continue to chat. I tried the kit right before showering at 1 AM in the morning. I figured I was showering and if this goes wrong, I have no appointment to get to or foundation to wash off. My face was bare. I grab the little pod and the color is close to the pencil I already use that is now the size of a nub, but it’s been loyal for 2 years now at doing it’s job. I grab the brush that resembles the brush I use to apply liner in wet/powder form, so I am relatively familiar with an angle ended one. The spoolie brush end, is nice and full, but the bristles are soft enough to separate but not scratchy against the skin. I’m thinking the dual ended brush I already love but let’s see how this pod thingy works. The eyebrow powder is almost velvet like when the brush hits the surface but not powdery that it ends up on you cheeks or falls off the brush. No need to wet the powder so I begin to swipe along the brows and I notice that the powder settles in delicately and sets to a very natural but fuller look. Like the powder imitates my own brow hairs sort of like a chameleon! Okay, it’s one in the morning and I am wondering if I am happy with the results or just wired from staying up, as I did one brow only and ask my Husband for the verdict. He first asks what I am looking at and then notices my one nicely done brow. He comments, “What did you do”, and followed by I like it. I ask him does it look like I have caterpillar brows that are ready to attack you? Nope, it looks nice and neat…..not crazy! Okay, it’s Hubby approved. I get into the shower and the bdb stuff washes off without any raccoon eyes residue leftover. I must also add that I watched zero of the videos on the site at this hour and that is how easy a successful application was.

The next day, I give it a true try, like with make-up and all. I go out to the mall and I notice that the bdb cosmetics feel nice and light on my brows, plus it lasts looking as fresh as it did in the morning when I applied it. I’m talking about going into stores that have the heater blasting this Winter creating a suffocating environment while you, the customer, are trying to move around and shop while trying to not break a sweat. Maybe girl at the register is cold from just standing in one place but definitely are not!  Let us say my eyebrows looked awesome all day and the same can’t be said about my mascara! I ended up with mascara on my bottom lashes when I applied none in the first place. I may have shunned away from products with what I claimed had gimmicky names but when the product works and makes me divorce my 2-year nubby eyebrow pencil (and the brand-new I had in storage for when nubby was no more)……well, that is something. I threw out anything eyebrow related and now just have this bdb kit as my everyday go-to and I won’t apply anything else on my eyebrows!

 

Retail Price Point: $24.00 for the entire kit and I used so little to get a nice natural look and applied just a little more for a dramatic finish when we go out in the evening. This kit will last you!

The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit-

This kit resembles more my former beauty routine, and it comes with the following…….

  • Universal Brow Pencil: Formulated to work beautifully with most skin tones and hair colors, this eyebrow pencil goes on smooth and natural. Plus, the Universal Brow Pencil is automatic. The pencil never needs sharpening and it comes complete with a spoolie brush on the opposite end for effortless blending and a perfect finish.
  • Brow Duo Pencil: Highlights your brow bone to add gorgeous definition and warmth while providing instant visual “lift.” The highlighter works with every skin tone. Plus, for on-the-go touch-ups, they added a handy universal concealer on the opposite end of the pencil.
  • Brow Gel: The clear brow gel locks in your look, giving your eyebrows a long-lasting, radiant glow while keeping them perfectly in place all day.
  • Smudge Brush: This flat, synthetic brush is the ideal mate for applying creamy cosmetics like our Brow Duo Pencil.

Verdict:
It’s like the uber treatment for eyebrows! I use a powder highlighter and at times have one that comes in “lipstick form”, but the bdb has a more appealing glow coming from the highlighter pencil. You get that glimmer but not glitter that I dislike from some of the highlighters out there. The Concealer, is not chalky and blended perfectly with my pale skin, and also lasted well through out the day. No flaking from wear and the best part, it covers my boo boos, like when I went hunting for an eyebrow hair with a tweezer and ended up bleeding but the short hair remains. Well, there is no evidence of that left when I can now just softly swipe the concealer end on those red marks that I later realize stand out more that the thin little hair that could only be seen an inch away from the mirror! The gel I love because it does not leave me crispy and crunchy hairs that make me look like a cat that got scared. The gel from bdb keeps the hairs in place but remain soft looking, so it’s a pleasant change. The smudge brush in this kit is flat and not angled, like the other kit because this one is used more for blending in the pencil and softening any edges you maybe swiped too heavy over. It’s the fixer and even though it is synthetic, it is one of the better ones of this class and washes/dries up nicely after use. I always wash my brushes after every use and it’s my way to keep bacteria off them and to guarantee a flawless application every time I go to apply my make-up.

Retail Price Point: The four units above are just $42.00 for the kit and that is not counting dual ended ones that do more than just one job!

 

Final Verdict:
If there is a kit to buy like right now and not because it’s holiday time but because it changes your appearance and ease of application, it is the first kit. Think of it as the intro to the bdb family and it’s the one that bought me. I love the second kit but I realize many of us have bought stuff for the holidays and you may not want to spend more but if you can, get both! I do not usually drop my go-to products unless they get bumped off by a better replacement and I can say that bdb bumped everything I used on my eyebrows off and into the trash can. This is the way to go and the bdb company obviously knows brows and how to make them look spectacular!
