Anastasia Beauty Express Kit for Brows and Eyes

I Bought This


Last year I was turned on to the services of Anastasia, a brand synonymous with neatly groomed and shaped eye brows.   Having suffered a few self inflicted eye brow tragedies, and a few I paid good money for, I was happy to find an eye brow service I could trust. 

Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes


One of the first products I bought from Anastasia was a pack of eye brow stencils.  My eye brow consultant helped me find my correct shape, High Arch, and after seeing it in action, it was a no brainer to pay the $20 for the stencil pack.  As time passed, I wanted to enhance my eye brow wardrobe so I decided to pick up the Anastasia Beauty Express Kit for Brows and Eyes.

Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes

This kit has everything you need to style and groom your brows.  It comes with cream brow shaping wax (top left pan) two shades of eye brow powder to fill in your brows (this kit is Brunette), and two neutral shadows (one matte, one shimmer) that can be used to highlight your brow bone.  It also comes with 5 stencils for various brow shapes and a high quality angle brush to apply the powder/waxes to your brows.

Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes Brush
The brush is made of dense synthetic fibers and can be used with the wax or the powders.  I like to use this for the wax since it is stiffer, for the brow powder I use something slightly softer like a MAC 266.  I think it gives a more natural line that won't require as much softening after the fact.

Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes Stencils
The Anastasia Beauty Express Kit comes with five eye brow stencils.  Slim High Arch, Petite Arch, Medium Arch and Full Arch.  You can mix and match stencil if needed to find your perfect shape.

Final Thoughts

First, I can't recommend Anastasia's eye brow shaping services enough.  I've paid decent money for some truly awful eye brows.  The Anastasia artists work with your natural shape and fullness to give you the most flattering brows for your face and they show you everything and explain it so you can get the same results at home.   I spend $30 every 6-8 weeks and it is well spent.

The Anastasia Beauty Express Kit is amazing for the price.  It retails for $39.50 and contains over $100 worth of product in a kit that fits in the palm of your hand.  The set of 5 stencils alone retails for $20.  This is just an amazing value for your money and it will last you forever!

Currently looks as if this kit is offered in Blonde and Brunette.  The kit pictured here is Brunette.

Where to Buy: Sephora or Nordstrom or your local Anastasia Counter.
Price: $39.50

  1. I wish I had an Anastasia near me. People rarely get my brows right so I just do them myself. I'm looking for a good brow filler. It sounds like I need to pick this up!

  2. This looks like a great set! I am eyebrow challenged and have been keeping my eyes open for a new method of shaping them. I may have to give this a try!

  3. Wow!!! This seems like a great set indeed. Affordable as well. Just sad to know that the brow shaping one is not that good but good thing that there are still many other great things in the set. A must have!
