Defining my eyebrows has become an integral part of my makeup routine for the last 3 years, as I have very pale brows which get ‘lost’ in my face. When I subscribed to Glossybox, I received this in one of my boxes, which for the most part I was happy with as I’d been dying to try more HD Brows products.
HD Brows Palettes come in three sets:
‘Bombshell’ for fair hair and skin
‘Foxy’ for medium hair and skin
‘Vamp’ for dark hair and skin
I was a little irked that Glossybox had clearly ignored my beauty profile and sent me something suitable for dark hair and skin, however luckily the shades are very wearable so it meant I could still get use of this palette.
Vamp comes with 4 powders- black, dark brown, mid brown and a cream coloured shadow. it also comes with a handy double ended brush to help you do your eyes and brows. I have to admit I don’t use this as I already have brushes for these, but if you don’t I recommend you do as it’s fairly good!
The brown shades are quite pigmented so a couple of taps of the powder with my Mac 208 brush is more than enough to swipe through my brows to create that lovely HD Brows type finish. Because of the darkness of the brown shades, I tend to mix the two to create the perfect colour for my brows. The black is ok, but I wouldn’t recommend it if it wasnt being used for brows as there are many many more shadows that I have used with a much easier and better colour payoff. The pale cream one isn’t very good either to be honest. I had to go over a couple of times to get a proper colour payoff.
Overall I’d probably not repurchase this one, but try in another shade, perhaps the ‘bombshell’ palette as that seems to be more suited to my skintone. It’s a great palette and I genuinely love the brown shades as theyre great and quite pigmented as well as lasting all day on my brows. However the black and cream shadows aren’t that great and there are much better eyeshadows. This palette would probably be better value and better all round if it only included the brow colours.
