What I liked:

– kit contains everything you need to create beautiful brows
– the 4 stencils provided will fit most women’s brows
– shades look natural on
– easy to use
– the brushes provided work well
– longlasting

What I didn’t like:
– the first time you use it, it’s easy to apply too much and look weird
– the price

I’m blessed with nice eyebrows. They are not too sparse nor too thick and they have a nice shape. At least I think so. I usually don’t do anything to them apart from tweezing them when needed. But when I have an important date or meeting, I like to pay special attention to my brows and to do it I use the Form A Brow Kit from Senna Cosmetics.

A great tool for anyone that wishes to have perfect brows, the Form A Brow Kit includes 3 brow powder colors to mix to match your natural eyebrow color, 2 mini brushes to apply and blend the shades, a mirror which, albeit small, is just about enough to see what you’re doing to your brows, 4 brow shaping stencils in Fine, Natural, Full and Xtra Full for shaping brows and instructions! The price of the kit might seem high but you do get all you need for your brows!

You can choose among 5 color combinations: Ash Blonde for those with blonde hair, Blonde Redhead for those with red or auburn locks, Neutral for brunettes with fair or medium skintones, Dark for those with dark skintones and black hair, and Salt & Pepper for Asian skintones or grey or black hair and fair skin. There really is something for everyone! The one I have is Natural, which is perfect for me and features a taupe, a cedar and an ebony shade.

The kit is very easy to use. First brush your eyebrows with the twirler brush provided and then choose the stencil, all of which have an arched shape, that better matches your natural brow shape. There are 4 stencils to choose from so most women will able to find a good match. But if you have asymmetrical brows, you might find they don’t suit your perfectly. However, the stencils are to be used as a guide to know where you have to tweeze and then place the color so just adjust them as needed.

Now, it’s time to apply some color to those brows. Pick up the color you think will suit you best with the tapered brush included in the kit, tap off any excess, and start applying it. Start by using a light color and only use a darker one if needed. Use a light hand to apply the color and remember that less is more. If the shade is too light, you can always darken it but correcting a shade that’s too dark is more difficult.

Also, you don’t need to use the powder everywhere. Start applying the color where the hair is more sparse and add as needed. Once you placed the color, remove the stencil and blend with the twirler brush. Unless you packed on too much color, which is a mistake that can easily happen if the light in your bedroom (or wherever else you do your makeup in) isn’t that good or it’s the first time you are filling in your brows on your own (a lesson I learned the hard way), your brows will look beautiful, arched and natural. They will make you look polished and pull together the whole look.

In addition, the powders are quite longlasting so they will last most of the day even if you don’t use anything to fix them. But of course if you plan to stay out in the evening too I recommend that you do. Or you could always take the kit with you. It is so sleek and small that it will easy fit into your bag and it takes just a few minutes to do both your brows. I was also surprised by the quality of the brushes. I wouldn’t say they are the best I ever used but they do their job well. The tapered one has really soft bristles that are good at placing the color without scratching.

Summary
If you’re looking for an eyebrow kit, you should consider Senna Form A Brow Kit. I like that it comes in 5 color combination, each of which contains 3 shades, 4 stencils and instructions, so everyone will be able to find a good match for them. The brushes in the kit are actually useful and help create arched, natural-looking brows in just a few minutes. The price is on the pricey side but at least you do get quite a lot.

      Marguerite, sono daccordo, è difficile trovare un kit per sopracciglia perfetto ma questo ci va vicino. Non solo ha 3 colori, ma stencils, pennelli, istruzioni, tutto quello di cui uno ha bisogno. :)

      Trisha, I agree the price is steep, but then you should consider that it contains 3 shades, 4 stencils and brushes that are actually good. If you were to buy them all separately (unless you went for drugstore products of course), you’d probably ended up spending the same. Although I would have loved if it was less expensive.

      Makeup Morsels, thank you! I agree, Senna makes some lovely products and I think this brand is underestimated, which is a shame. Yes, the price is expensive but it comes with a lot of things so to me it’s worth it.
