This brow-enhancing palette includes two shades of powder and a setting wax. If you’re considering a brow powder, you’re better off using a well-chosen matte eyeshadow rather than this product, because, oddly enough, the setting wax tends to leak all over the powders. The mess is not surprising considering that this wax is extremely greasy and difficult to work with.

  • None.
  • Greasy setting wax separates and leaks inside the palette.
  • Matte brow powder is very basic, and you can easily substitute a matte powder eyeshadow for it.
  • Brush is far too small for accurate application.

This small Los Angeles–based makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager (you know, just like about 99.9% of teenage women) and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.

It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products. The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.

NYX Cosmetics customer service number is (866) 699-1004 or you can visit www.nyxcosmetics.com.

    My Eyebrows Fell Out!!!!
    • I used this product to get a feel for shaping my brows. I have thin brows and they are very light brown (almost blonde). The color was a great match and although the brush was small I was able to use it with little to no problem. After a few months I noticed my eyebrows started to itch and were falling out in small patches!!!! I had to immediately stop using the product and am waiting for the hairs to fill in again. Not sure what the problem was but BEWARE

    • I agree with the other reviewer, this is a great product and I've never had any problems with it. I have used regular matte eyeshadows before as a brow powder and yes they work well. This product, however, tends to stay on better than a regular eyeshadow. It is fantastic and my sparse brows really look great and very natural. I use a bigger brush to apply it in the morning and the brush it comes with for a touch up during the day if needed. It stays put very well! I would rate it Best!!!!!

    This product is fine...
    • Not sure why this product has such a poor rating - I bought it about three months ago and have not had problems with the wax leaking into the powder. The powder is very natural looking and I like the two tones. The wax can look a little greasy, so it needs a light touch when applying.
