First Impressions: Sigma Beauty Expert Brow Design!

Hi My Loves!!!

I just got this in the mail yesterday and thought I would share some pictures and my first impressions with you. It's the new Sigma Beauty Expert Brow Design Kit. 

It comes in a massive big box rather delightfully packaged :)

It also comes with a little booklet.

 Inside there are scissors, tweezers, brow stencils, 2 highlight pencil shades, 2 brow pencil shades, 5 brow shadows, brow gel (clear and colored), a sharpener and the E75 brush as well as the E80.

From Top to Bottom:
Matte Highlighter Pencil: (Very Creamy, goes on easily, has a pinky cream tint)
Shimmer Highlighter Pencil: (A gold shimmer, creamy and glides on easily)
Medium Brow Pencil: (Is a little tackier, a medium ash brown with a slight sheen)
Dark Brow Pencil: (Again tacky, slightly darker, again has a shimmer/sheen to it)

From Left To Right:
Bella: A very light ash blonde
Chloe: Warmer light red
Scarlett: Light ash Brown
Natasha: Medium Brown
Valentina: Dark Brown

 Without Flash:

With Flash:

You can see in the picture with the flash, that the 2 brow pencil colors have a slight shimmer to them.. not a massive amount but definitely a little bit. That would be the only think that concerns me....  I haven't actually tried anything yet, as I just got it but I will let you know if it shows up with a shimmer once it's on... or if it's noticeable. The other thing that concerns me is the fact that the Brow pencil itself is quite thick/large. How easy will it be to get that really fine line I normally do??? We shall see :) I'll try it out and let you know!

The powders seem like a good variety of shades...... the lightest blonde has a tad of a greenish tint... so I'm not sure how that would work on very light hair but it's too light for me to use. 

I'm excited about the brow gel as well as the highlighting pencil... both colors seem really nice and creamy. Of course the E80 is already by go to brow brush so that's a given as far as that goes.... I haven't tried the E75 yet, so I'll be interested to see how it works.

As you guys know I'm more of a pencil kind of person when it comes to my eyebrows but I will see how these powders work for my pathetic excuse for eyebrows :)

I'll definitely keep you updated on how I like it!

Thanks so much for reading!!

Happy Saturday :)
