Every now and then it happens that I love a certain product and use it every day, but then it completely slips my mind and I forget to actually write a review on it. One of those products is the Eyebrow Duo in Light from one of my all time favourite brands, the UK mineral makeup line Lily Lolo. You should see my Lily Lolo collection, it's quite impressive. I have all three eye shadow palettes, their mineral foundation (of course!), lipsticks and more. Yes, some products were very kindly sent to me but I also buy them myself and have been doing that for years. Love.
I have the lightest duo of the three called Light. As the name suggest, this product is duo of pressed powder and a natural wax. The colour of the pressed powder is pretty much the perfect shade for my eyebrows. It worked great with my lighter hair and now with darker as well. A few days ago I also used it on my cousin who has lighter brows than me and the shade looked amazing on her. Light is more on the ashy spectrum of colours but it also has a tint of warmth to it. I really like that because it makes it more versatile. I featured it in a few of my latest blog post where I showed my face, but on some photos it looks more warm than it actually is. Don't know why, but it's worth mentioning it.
Besides the great colour match, the powder itself goes on nicely and stays put pretty much all day. It's pigmented but not too much so you can't really mess up the application. Well at least if you don't go straight to the front of your brows. I like to start at the arch of my brow, which is the highest part of eyebrows, and then fill them in down on both sides. I'm no expert when it comes to brows. I only started filling them in after years of wearing bangs. I never felt the need I had to fill them in becuase they weren't really visible. I'm also really lazy with plucking and shaping them, so I just roll with what I have and fill them so they look
natural semi natural.
Okay, the pressed powder is amazing, but what about the wax? Well, it might be amazing as well but honestly, I only used it a couple of times so I can't tell you much about it. You use it to hold your brows in place but for those few times I tried it, I didn't really see much difference. But I never really use a setting wax or one of those clear mascaras. I just don't feel like it. The wax feels nice though, it goes on clear, it's not sticky, it doesn't make my brows crunchy or anything like that. If it was up to me, I would be completely fine with just the pressed powder. :)
You are also probably wondering which brushes I use for making my brows a little more presentable. I use two, a spoolie brush (don't know the brand but I got it in Muller) and a smaller angled brush from EcoTools (see the first photo bellow). It's not the perfect one, I wish it was just a tiny bit smaller and denser, but for now it works. Sometimes I would like it to be more precise but it is what it is. I did try the Lily Lolo Angled Brow - Spoolie Brush* but it left me feeling quite underwhelmed. The angled brush is not as thin as I would like so I can't be as precise with it as I can be with the Eco Tools brush. The spoolie end is way better but it would be even nicer if it wasn't so short. You can see on the photos what I mean and how the Lily Lolo spoolie brush is shorter than the other one that I like.
To sum up this long post - thumbs up for the pressed powder (lovely shade match for blondes and brunettes as well, great pigmentation and longevity), I usually skip the natural wax but it's nice nonetheless, and thumbs down for the Angled Brow - Spoolie Brush.
Have you tried the Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo? What do you think about it?
