If nothing else, it's topical for me. I shall spare you the ramble about growing my brows out etc etc but I was recently send the High Definition Brows palette for my perusal. We all know by now how important a well defined brow is and that pencil lines are and should be a thing of the past, with the exception of goths who sometimes have the most fabulous drawn on eyebrows, but if you're not a goth, there's no excuse. A brow finishes your face and frames it, its important and thats why I'm currently growing mine out.
So the HD palette is a palette containing six shades of matt, neutral powders and two double ended brushes, one of which is the sponge applicator we all know to avoid these days, the other of which is a rather precise brush, which I've been using to apply the products. The shades certainly seem to cater for everyone, from black through to ash blonde, with reddy hues, brown hues and for me the third from the left is the perfect shade. This isn't a small palette either, it's fairly substantial and rather nicely the whole interior of the lid is mirror.
Like me, you might be wondering what exactly you are supposed to do with the shades that aren't right for you, well rather handily, they are all suitable for use as eyeshadows. I've not actually had a play yet so can't tell you how they perform as eyeshadows but for my brows they are pretty fantastic.
While I'm growing out my brows I'm finding that they they to distract from the copious amounts of strays so at a glance my bows are still clearly defined and I'm hoping that once my brows are properly reshaped they will add the extra defnition as my brows are fairly light in colour and I even have some white hairs in there *sad face*
To the left there you can see the third shade in action. They are easy to use and I really like the brush. It retails for the sum of £24.95 and is availale from selected salons or http://www.hd-brows.co.uk/
Is it worth it? Well yes and no, if you like neutral shadows, and matte ones at that then you'll get full use of the palette, but if you just want to define your brows then it's overkill just for one shade. I think I'll probably get some use out of the other shades and I plan to try using one of the darker powders on my brow too, just to see what it looks like. So yes and no is the answer, it does a decent job, I like the brush, there should be a shade for everyone and if there isn't you should be able to blend two shades together to get your shade, and if you fancy the colours on your eyelids too then you're onto a winner.
