Kat Von D Beauty Brow Collection Review

 Kat Von D Brow Pomade Aubergine - Marisa Robinson Beauty

If eyes are the window to the soul then brows are the drapes which frame your whole face. As soon as I have my brows done I feel like I really have my life together and honestly, it transforms my whole makeup look. So when I discovered that Kat Von D Beauty had released a new Cruelty Free and Vegan Brow Collection featuring a Pencil, Pomade and Powder I couldn't wait to put it to the test.

In this post I share looks I have created using each new Kat Von D Beauty Brow product and my thoughts on each.

 Kat Von D Signature Brow Pencil Dark Brown - Marisa Robinson Beauty

KAT VON D SIGNATURE BROW PENCIL - $30
Shade: Dark Brown

Details from the KVD Website:
Just like a signature, your brows are uniquely personal. Signature Brow Precision Pencil allows you create your dream brow shape with unprecedented control. This eyebrow pencil’s super-precise elliptical tip is perfect for drawing hair-like strokes with an artist’s precision. Use the long edge to outline your ideal brow shape, then flick the super-skinny tip to create realistic hair-like strokes.

The long-wear, break-resistant, waterproof eyebrow pencil is formulated to be extra-hard, designed for buildable payoff, so you can layer colour with confidence to achieve any custom brow look.

 Kat Von D Signature Brow Pencil Dark Brown

My Thoughts:
This is hands down my new favourite brow pencil. In fact, it is the reason it took me so long to get this review up because I couldn't bring myself to use any other brow products! What I love most about it is the shape of the pencil and the precision you get from it. The tip is 1 x 1.5mm so it allows you to create fine, hair-like strokes but you can also turn it on its long edge to fill the brows. I use this most mornings and I can create my ideal brow in less than 3 minutes with this pencil. My natural brows are quite sparse so not only is the precise pencil perfect but it is always important that I use a long-wear formula that is going to see me through the day and this definitely doesn't disappoint! The spoolie on the opposite end also makes it super easy to soften any harsh lines and blend out those brows for a nice, natural look.

Kat Von D Brow Pomade Aubergine - Marisa Robinson Beauty

KAT VON D 24 HOUR SUPER BROW LONG-WEAR POMADE - $28
Shade: Aubergine - Deep Plum

Details from the KVD Website:
The power to craft any brow imaginable is finally a reality. 24-Hour Super Brow is your secret weapon for bold brows with a high-impact, budge-proof look. Get ready to shape, sculpt, color and create with the boldest brow product Kat’s ever created in a spectrum of 16 ultra-pigmented shades.

Kat Von D stretched the boundaries of innovation to create the weightless, waterproof formula she’s always wanted but hasn’t been able to find. Saturated with as much pigment as possible, this high-pigment brow pomade delivers budge-proof brows that don’t come off until you want them to.
 

 Kat Von D Brow Pomade Aubergine - Marisa Robinson Beauty

My Thoughts:
When I want to create a glam brow look I always reach for a pomade. I was sent the new KVD Pomade in Dark Brown to try but I just couldn't buying one of the colours for a bold brow look and WOW, I am obsessed! Not only am I surprised that I can totally pull off this deep plum brow but applying it was like a dream. I used an angled brow brush and worked with small amounts of product, dipping the brush into the pomade and then wiping any excess onto a tissue before applying to my brows. This way I had a lot more control and I didn't get a build up of pomade which can often look a little 'cakey' when it is dry. The formula of this pomade is so smooth, it was melting onto my brush which made it even easier to apply. I used the edge of the brush to outline the brows and then the wider edge to fill them in, trying to use a lighter hand on the inner corner of the brow. The pomade is also extremely pigmented and it didn't take much product to build up bold, beautiful brows. For extra precision I took some Kat Von D Lock It Concealer on a small concealer brush and carved around the edges, softening the edges with a damp Beautyblender.

The stay power of this pomade is incredible. It. Did. Not. Budge. When it came to removing my makeup 5-6 hours later I could not remove my brows in a single swipe using a makeup wipe like I normally would. I had to saturate a cotton pad with micellar water, hold it on the my brows for a good 5-10 seconds before wiping it away. I am super impressed with this pomade and I will definitely be using it on the regular.

 Kat Von D Brow Struck Dimension Powder Dark Brown - Marisa Robinson Beauty

KAT VON D BROW STRUCK DIMENSION POWDER - $30
Shade: Dark Brown

Details from the KVD Website:
For perfectly full and balanced brows, Brow Struck Dimension Powder instantly fills in and evens out your shape with a realistic hair-like finish. Featuring a hybrid 2-in-1 Primer + Powder formula to enhance grip and wear time, Brow Struck Dimension Powder is Kat’s 1st brow powder to deliver waterproof, smudge-resistant brows for up to 12 hours.*

Brow Struck Dimension Powder makes it easier than ever to create a natural-looking brow and to fill in any sparse spots with the waterproof brow powder for soft, natural and insanely believable brows. Innovative 3D reflective pigments amplify depth and dimension in medium to full brows, while the semi-metallic finish mimics the sheen of real hair.

 Kat Von D Brow Struck Dimension Powder Dark Brown - Marisa Robinson Beauty

My Thoughts:
I love brow powders, especially when I want to create a natural brow look for everyday. The first thing I was drawn to about the KVD Brow Powder was the semi-metallic finish so it actually mimicked the look of natural brow hair which isn't just one dimensional and does have a sheen. I use an angled brow brush to apply the powder and found there was a little bit of fall out so tapping off the excess powder before applying it to your brows allows you to use the right amount of product and gives you control so you can build up the intensity you desire. A technique I have found helpful is turning the angle brush on its side and laying it flat on the inner corner of the brows to create a soft look which is less blocky and more faded and natural. This is a really beautiful powder which comes in a cute compact and I use a spoolie to blend it out for a soft and natural look.

 

The Kat Von D Brow range is available in a wide range of shades in store and online from Sephora.
