Today I have some makeup from a NZ brand called Eleanor Dorn. Eleanor is a makeup artist that I’ve followed for some time now, and was super excited to try some of her new makeup as soon as it launched! I love the EDM brushes that I already own, and knew that her makeup line would be up to the same high standard.
I purchased the 4-piece Brow Kit, which contains a setting gel, brow pencil, brow highlighter, and duo sharpener. All of these items can be purchased individually, but you’ll find that they are best value when purchased as a set.

The brow pencil comes in 3 shades – blonde, auburn, and dark brown. I chose dark brown and I find it works quite well for me. I don’t find that it leans too warm or too cool – it’s quite neutral, which I appreciate. I own FAR too many brow pencils that are too warm to use. I also really like that it has a spoolie attached to the pencil. When I first swatched this, I was a little worried that it would be too hard and firm on my brows. However, when actually used on the face, it’s the perfect density to easily fill in brows.
I’ve never used a brow highlighter before so I was pretty excited to try these! One end is a peachy shade and the other a shimmery highlight. Both shades are creamy and smooth. My only gripe is that the peachy side doesn’t really go with my skin and thus the rest of my makeup. I have more of an olive/green-ish tone to my skin, so the peachyness of it sticks out quite a lot to me, even when
The first thing I want to say is that I am SO HAPPY that the brow set has a normal shaped wand! (I’m looking at you, Maybelline Brow Drama). Brow Set only comes in clear, but that suits me. It sets my brows quite well, and holds everything in place without feeling crispy or dry. I have found that because it is clear, it has picked up a little bit of pigment from the brow pencil and is slowly turning brown. However, that’s not too big of a deal for me personally as I would only be using this on myself.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with these products! I think they are priced nicely in the mid-range and worth it to most people – especially with free shipping nationwide!
