While there is a ton of nonsense on Twitter, it isn’t usually where I run into ridiculous products. Yet, a few weeks ago, I stumbled across a ridiculous product on that very site.
stamp on eyebrows.
Like any elementary school student, I am unreasonably entertained by ink stamps. I’m intrigued by what appears to be the promise of a single, swift, single-step brow. But what good is a quick, easy-to-use product if the product doesn’t perform? I took to Ulta’s site to investigate since brow stuff has been on my mind a lot as of late.
- Never struggle with brows again! Just press the brow shaped sponge onto powder & stamp the color onto your brow!
- Cover sparse areas or just create perfect, natural looking brows
The KISS Brow Stamp product is powder, rather than ink-based. You pat the brow-shaped sponge applicator into the product, then press onto your face.
The colors offered by the KISS Brow Stamp product are far too warm for most brows. Reviews, overall, are not positive; indicating the tone is just wrong or that the color saturation is insufficient for usage alone.
If there’s one thing that eyebrows aren’t, its one-size-fits-all. Hell, they aren’t even one-size-fits-most! It just doesn’t work to prescribe one single shape; it’s why brow stencil sets come with more than one variety. There’s no room for refinement or adjustment to different face and eye shapes.
The Bottom Line
The KISS Brow Stamp product is a neat idea but its execution is a classic case of it just being too good to be true.
Some users reported that it makes a fair template upon which they can flesh out their brows further, but that it does not stand on its own.
If you’re interested in a stamp-based makeup product, though, I’ve read (and seen!) great things about the Vamp Stamp for eyeliner.
