I used to have a brilliant eyeshadow - it was Loreal but has been discontinued.

DD bought me browzings for my birthday, however it no good (it gives me ginger eyebrows and the wax makes my skin go red) so I slung it out.

I want a powder and a little brush, not a pencil. Also would like a waxy substance as well, as just plain powder in its own looks odd (I have tried vaseline on top and that gives a greasy Stalinesque browed look)

What is your colouring? What colour are your eyebrows? I use MAC eyeshadow in "concrete" and a flat eyeliner brush. Cheap clear mascara to tame them, collection 2000 I think it is.

I am blonde and pale but have very dark eyebrows for some reason. They are my best feature so like to emphasise.

I have tried eyeshadow - I have hundreds of them kicking around - however most of them have a slight glitter, so look like someone out of Pans People.

Illamasqua eyebrow cakes are fab. They are available I several shades so you should find one to suit your colouring

I use a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow called Sable, with eyebrow brush from an old Clinique eyebrow powder/wax kit (which was v good but I didn't like the green packaging!). I am pale with freckles and strawberry blonde hair.

I've been using a Smashbox one for a while - I also like Urban Decay brow boxes, there is a ginger one but it's tricky to find.
