Tat2U - Brow Pow! 4 shades - pics & swatches of all 4 shades, plus before & after pics

Hello, Beautiful!

If there is one product I use every single day without hesitation, it's something for my brows. I have sparse, thin brows which don't want to grow where I need them to (but will grow hair everywhere I don't want hair to grow), so I fill in my brows daily. I have an entire drawer dedicated to brow products, and it's hard to find ones that are both a perfect color match and have good staying power. Brow powders are probably my favorite, quick brow product because they are so simple and easy to use.

I recently tried out the Tat2U Brow Pow, which I now have in 4 shades: Blonde, Brownstone, Muddled and Java. Two shades worked for me and two did not, but I have pics and swatches of them all to help you find a shade that will match. Check out my full review after the pics!

My Review...

This brow powder is super easy to use, nicely pigmentation, easy to blend, effective, and long-lasting.

There are six shades in the line; I have all except Red Head (an auburn shade) and Smolder (a charcoal shade). Hopefully my swatch photos are helpful enough for you to decide which shade would be best for you. Red Head would obviously be suited for those that are in deed a red head or more auburn in color. Smolder would be best for those with black hair, but maybe also if you have dark gray hair. Without seeing them in person, or knowing what you prefer for your brows, I can't really speak on those two shades --- but I can give opinions on the other four shades in the line.

Out of the four shades of Brow Pow, I use shades Muddled and Java the most. Brownstone was too red in tone, even though I originally thought it would be a perfect match. In photos, Brownstone looks even more red in tone than in does in person because of the way my studio lights show every detail - but in real life it's not as red in tone (it would just look less natural on me, but I could wear it). Blonde was way too light; it hardly shows up but sometimes I like to use a taupe or blonde shade to lightly fill in my brows in combination with another brow shade/product. For this blonde, it is a bit too light for me to use all over on its own because my brows are just too sparse. I think it would be great for those that are blonde or even gray, because this would be light enough for you.

Shades Muddled and Java are better matches for me. Java is on the darker side, but used with a light hand and good blending, it's a great match for me. Where as Muddled is more the one I reach for on the daily, and what I almost always reach for when I'm in a hurry because it looks good and is the quickest for me to use without having to really think about it.

My personal issue with the Tat2U Brow Pow was finding a perfect color match - but I find that to be true with a lot of brow products. As a brunette, and let me know if you have this issue too, I find that a lot of brunette shades run more red in tone. While that may work for many, it doesn't work for me. I need an ashy tone, and I actually think a natural looking brow has a more ashy tone to it (unless of course you have red tones to your hair). That's really difficult to find, and while I have several brow products in my collection that I enjoy using, I only have one that is a perfect match (the Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash). The Tat2U Brow Pow shades in Muddled and Java still aren't that perfect ashy undertone, but they both work well enough for my brow color that I can use them. Sometimes I use both together - Muddled more on the inner half and Java more on the outer half. Just depends on what kind of brow look I'm going for.

I will say the price point is a bit on the high end; it's $19 - which ranks up there with brands you could find at Sephora. I will say, however, that I do think this brow powder is a good quality. I could easily see myself choosing to repurchase the Tat2U Brow Pow over my Tarte Amazonian Clay Brow Powder - which is $25 and didn't impress me near as much as the Tat2U Brow Pow did. But do I wish this was a lower cost brow powder? Of course I do, but just keep an eye out for sales and coupon codes if you don't want to splurge the $19 on a brow powder.

Now let me know what you think...

  1. Expensive for a brow powder but I would need Java and maybe I could also use some muddled for the front part of my lashes! They're products look sooo good!

  2. Love the before and after pics :) Great post!
