Hot or Not: The Flormar Eyebrow Design Kit
Visiting the beauty section to shop for makeup can be overwhelming these days. With the sheer number of brands available in our local market, how do you even begin to pick which makeup is the best of the best? For the most part, I try to base my purchases on online reviews (hi, PV search bar!) so I can avoid wasting money on duds if I can help it. But if I’m buying blind or trying to discover an underrated drugstore gem, I’ll admit that it’s always the pretty makeup that I bring with me to the till.
So, here is today's big question: does the luxe-looking Flormar Eyebrow Design Kit (P599 at SM Beauty) perform as well as it looks?
Even at first glance, the sleek packaging of the Flormar Eyebrow Design Kit sets it apart from most drugstore brow powders. You can stamp a high end logo on the compact and I wouldn’t question it! The addition of a good-sized mirror as well as a tiny tools drawer was a nice touch to elevate the look of this brow kit.
Each brow kit contains a brow wax, a brow powder, a brush-spoolie duo, and tiny pair of tweezers. There are two shades available, Light and Medium, which I think are enough to cater to a wide range of hair color and skin tones. While they look more neutral in swatches, I find that they’re slightly warmer when applied on my brows. The shade Medium matches my black brows and brown hair perfectly. The pigmentation isn’t too rich, which I prefer because stark brows are an absolute no-no.
After using these for more than a week, I’ve found that the best way to apply this is to first use the wax as a wet base for powder to cling to, then fill in all sparse areas with the brow powder. Going at it the other way (powder before wax) gave me a hard time with keeping the definition in my brow tail and arches. Note that the wax has more slip than it has hold, so putting it over powder would move the pigments of the powder everywhere. I get about 6 to 8 hours of wear from these brow powders (depending on how much I sweat throughout the day), which is typical with powder formulas.
In conclusion, the Flormar Eyebrow Design Kit is pretty nice and reliable for what it is. I adore how sleek, luxe, and compact it looks - I'd recommend it to those who are shopping for an eyebrow kit for the first time! The brow powder and wax combo is fool-proof for beginners, plus it's quite useful to have a brush, spoolie, and tweezers in one place to keep brows polished.
However, if your kilay wizardry level is intermediate, this might not be the mind-blowing brow set you're looking for. You may have something like this in your kit already or favor other formulas.
