If you’ve been reading this blog, you have likely noticed my fondness for the MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil in Taupe, which sadly discontinued! Yes, I’ll admit to having two back ups of this pencil, but I’ve also been looking for a similar color to this pencil as well for when it’s gone completely. I go through brow products quickly since I use them every day, and I’ve heard great things about this Wet ‘n’ Wild Ultimate Brow Kit.
The kit comes in two shades: Ash and Dark Brown. I purchased Ash, as I’ve found that some brown shades tend to be too warm for my face and coloring. The kit contains two powders, tweezers, a small brush, and wax. The tweezers are pretty useless for plucking; however, they’ll do in a pinch. They’re also good for applying false lashes.
I have been using the darkest shade for my brows in this kit, and it is such a close match to my beloved MAC pencil! I prefer using pencils to do my brows for better control; however, I’ve been using a Real Techniques accent brush (from the eye kit) to apply the powder and it allows for just as much control as the pencil, if not more. I actually use the little brush in the kit to apply the wax after to set my brows in place for the day.

One thing I worried about with this kit was the lasting power of a powder, but this actually stays on my brows from the minute I put it on until I wash it off at night, which is sometimes 12 hours or longer! You also cannot beat the price on this kit: $3.99 at drugstores and convenience stores. I’m definitely a fan! Dare I say with more use that this could replace my adoration of the MAC pencil?
