Clarins Pro Palette Eyebrow Kit Review (and pictures: spot the difference!)

I wrote briefly about my new Clarins Pro Palette Eyebrow Kit in a previous post and said I’d come back and do a little review. I’ve used this kit every single day since I got it: with a mini tweezers, brow brush and powder/shadow applicator, along with a pinkish eyeshadow, brow wax and 3 eyebrow shades, this slim mirrored case has everything you need to indulge and appease even a full blown brow obsession like my own.
There are 3 eyebrow powder colours – black, brown and blonde – and my only issue with this kit is that I will never use the lightest shade, which strikes me as being a tad wasteful. It’s a larger size than brow kits I’ve owned in the past, but not so large that I can’t carry it around with me in my handbag for daily use. There’s a decent sized mirror on the inside lid (and the outside case is so reflective that I sometimes use this to apply the rest of my make up on the bus).
When I reviewed the Clarins Wonder Perfect mascara recently, Karen over at lovelygirliebits asked about photos. Thanks to my very patient and accommodating colleague Bonnie, here’s a before and after shot for you.
Before...

And after!
This was literally a one-minute-eye - I just used the darkest brow shade in the Clarins Pro Palette Eyebrow kit, one coat of Clarins Wonder Perfect mascara (top lashes only) and a touch of both the lightest and darkest shade from my Catrice eyeshadow quad, in 090 Chocolate Temptation.

I'm relieved to see these pics are much better than the creepy Inbetween eyebrow thumbnail on the fluff and fripperies facebook page!
