Japonesque Brow Tools (Review)

Japonesque Brow Tools

I often get complimented on my eyebrows, but they are not naturally perfect, they need a bit of grooming to look good (I have recently done a full tutorial on my brows grooming routine HERE). Currently I do all the grooming myself as I’ve managed to perfect my technique and it also saves me a bit of money, so I’m always on the look out for new tools which will make the task of self-grooming easier. A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to try some of Japonesque’s brow tools, so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all :)

These tweezers are super precise and great for plucking fine and small hairs. They are not as flexible as the Tweezerman tweezers and much longer, as you can see on the photo. This can be a bit of a problem if you try to get a mirror really close to your face, as the tweezers do get in the way. However, these tweezers have a much better grip than the Tweezerman ones as they are made of stainless steel and finished with a deep enamel coat. You also get free reconditioning for the lifetime of the tweezers.

This tiny angled brush is very handy when it comes to the task of filling in eyebrows. It’s even small enough to fill in the very ends of my eyebrows without leaving any excess of product behind. The bristles are quite sturdy, which for an eyebrow brush is great because it gives you more control and precision. The handle is as long as a MAC 217 brush, which again can be a pain if you’re trying to hold a mirror up close to your face, and also a bit inconvenient to travel with, but the rubbery material is very high quality and it has an expensive look to it. This brush can be used with powder, pencil or cream product, but so far I’ve only tried it with a powder and I liked it :)

Japonesque Pro Brow Lash / Comb

Japonesque Pro Brow Lash / Comb*, £9.75 | HQHair

This is a simple and essential brow grooming tool in every kit. I don’t have much to say about the comb part, but the brush is very good. The hard bristles are great at taming my unruly brow hairs and I also like using it to brush out any excess powder to keep my eyebrows looking ‘real’ rather than too sculpted.

Overall I do find that the Japonesque tools are a bit pricey but they are totally worth the money, if you ask me. They don’t look or feel cheap and they do the job well. I would always go for a slightly expensive tool rather than an cheaper one, if I know it will do exactly what I want it to do.

Japonesque also has some amazing makeup brushes, some of which I’ve reviewed a few months ago. Click here to read my review.

What do you think of these Japonesque Brow Tools? Would you buy or already own any of them? What other Japonesque tools have you tried?

Au revoir!
