Essence Make Me Brow Duo Eyebrow Powder Review

As part of their latest launches, Essence released a new brow powder duo that is supposed to give a sheer to medium coverage. As I am a fan of the ‘natural’ brow look on a daily basis, I wanted to try the ‘ Essence Make Me Brow Duo Eyebrow Powder ‘and see how it works for me. This powder retails for 3.49$ which makes it very affordable too!

Essence Make Me Brow Duo Eyebrow Powder comes in two shades: ‘01 mix it blonde’ and ‘02 mix it brunette’. I got the shade 02 which consists of a light brown powder and another cool toned greyish brown. The powders are soft; they do have a smooth texture that is very lightweight and not overly pigmented.

If you are looking for this ‘bold defined brow’ look, you might not enjoy this duo because of the light pigmentation. Using these powders, you can achieve the look of a very natural brow that looks undone.  As per the essence website, you can use the lighter shade on existing hairs and the darker shade to fill in gaps in your brows. As I have dark brows, I find the light shade to be very light for me so I only used the dark shade.

The powders blend nicely and they might have a little bit of fallout so it is better to tap off the excess before applying the product to the skin.
These powders are also very long lasting! I tested them without any brow gel first and they lasted for about six to seven hours before starting to fade.

So overall, I think that this eyebrow duo is perfect for someone who is looking for this ‘very natural brow look’. It is also a great product for beginners because it is mistake-proof and the powders blends effortlessly into the skin. If you are looking for a more pigmented powder duo that can achieve a more ‘bold look’, I think that the Milani eyebrow kit might do the job. Both of these are from the drugstore and they are really good!

    It does remind me the eyebrow stylist set, maybe it’s same but different packaging? I don’t know, but I think I would like it.

    This looks really nice, the colours are good and the lasting power is decent. Fantastic for the price and I love a natural brow. Think it would be perfect for beginners? Great review, I didn’t know Milani had brow products, will check those out too. Fantastic post Claire xxx

    Interesting product! I use their Make Me Brow Gel and I love it – I’ve heard it’s a dupe for Benefits Gimme Brow.

    I have ended up using just a matte brown eyeshadow to fill in my browns. This duo looks good. You gave a great review on it as well. x

    I have been using eyebrow powder every day and my go-to is MUFE Pro Sculpting Eyebrow palette. I love how natural it looks instead of tattooed on.
