L-R Omega and Charcoal Brown
I'm not a brow kinda gal, lipsticks yes, blushers yes, brow products not so much. I'm not able to run out of he house without fixing them a little don't get me wrong but spending twenty minutes on one instead of lying in bed? I don't think so! At the minute I use an eyebrow pencil to shape my brows & then apply some eyeshadow to fill them out a little which gives a natural look but lately I just wanted to mix things up a little. I had had my eye on MAC's omega eyeshadow for a long time because of its perfect colour match for blonde haired girls and let me tell you thats a real struggle. 

Since completely my MAC quad (post here) I'd also wanted to fill a duo because the're adorably sized and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to fill a quad again so I knew Omega was a must for it. The duo I had in mind then turned in a brow duo as the second shade I picked up was Charcoal Brown, now you're probably wondering why I picked something so dark but truth is I'm debating dying my hair darker again and so this shade will come in handy. I've also read a lot of reviews about Charcoal Brown saying how well loved it is so I thought I'd give it a whirl. If I do manage to dye my hair blonde-er again (I really am in two minds) then it'll double up as a nice crease colour too.  

From first swatches the shadows are incredibly pigmented and gorgeous neutral colours to add to my collection, I haven't used them for my brows yet but now that I've taken photos (bloggers rule) I'll be sure to jump to it. I'll also post a little update in the future to let you know how good they are! I'm just really happy that I can carry them around with me even in the smallest of clutches and lets face it, who doesn't need two more MAC eyeshadows? Its like an addiction

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo 
P.s what kind of brow products do you use: powder or pencil?
