NYX Eyebrow cake powder is a great low end eyebrow powder/wax combo, even if you don't like the coloring, the wax itself works wonderfully for keeping the brows in place, and for the price, it can't be beat.
The only downside is getting the coloring right for blonds. Some blonds don't like the super dark brow color contrast, with the light hair look. However, if you apply less product and mix it with the Maybelline expert eyes twin brow pencil in blond, see my review here: http://www.examiner.com/review/best-drug-store-eye-brow-pencil-maybellin... you can make the color work for you.
For darker hair colors you have more opportunities to find the coloring that works well with your entire look. That aside, this is a great low end eyebrow powder and wax set that comes with two colors of powder, which is great if you need to mix and blend. However, if you can only use one color then the other is pretty much useless, but excess product doesn't detract from how long NYX Eyebrow cake powder will last, which is a good amount of time.
That being said, if you have never learned how to apply an eyebrow powder this is a great product to learn with, due to both the cost and quality. Our eyebrows shape our face, they are incredibly important, they deserve as much time as we spend on everything else.
Generally speaking with any drugstore power product from eyeshadow, to brow powders you shouldn't use their applicator that comes with it unless in a jam, because they are cheap and only good if you are a 6 year old playing in mommies makeup. The same can be said for the included plastic slanted brush in this product but it's not a drawback, as most experience makeup users use their own brushes anyway. Like painting, applying makeup is an art form, one needs the proper tools as well as great product. Tip, use a pro eyebrow powder brush from either MAC or Smashbox, they both have great brushes that will last years, and then take the time to actually learn how to use it.
NYX Eyebrow cake powder is a wonderful deal.
