Product Review: Fanny Serrano Eyebrow Powder

Eyebrows are just as important as any part of our face. According to Wikipedia, their main function is to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression. In the world of makeup, the eyebrows frame the face so it's very important that you have well-groomed eyebrows to match those tantalizing eyes.

Enough of the intro. Lol. =) 

During my one-on-one makeup class I realized that I wanted to buy something that will enhance my eyebrows. I stumbled upon a review of Fanny Serrano's eyebrow powder. Honestly, I was hesitant to buy this at first because of the price. Yes, I know it's only Php350 (approximately 8.30 USD) but I find it a bit impractical to buy four shades when I only need one. However, when the sales lady applied the product on me I was sold. Hehe.

This is how the product looks like. It's elegantly packed with the FS logo on it. The case looks sturdy and durable. This product comes with a mirror and 2 pieces applicator brush. If you look closely you will see the manufactured date which is a plus for me since I can estimate until when I can use the product.

I used #2 and #4 here

The picture above shows the 4 eyebrow powder swatches. Just match the swatch's number with the shade for comparison. As you can see the number 4 shade is really light. You can hardly see it on my skin. Hehe. I usually use #2 since it matches my skin tone.

  • Elegantly packed.
  • Reasonably priced. I realized that I can use the other shades as eyeshadows so I'm good with the price.
  • Locally available. I bought mine at SM Makati.
  • 4 shades to choose from which you can mix to create a new color.
  • Long lasting and a little application is all you need.
  • Palettes are not available individually. So if you've used up one shade you have to buy the 4 shades again.
  • I hope they can come up with an enhanced applicator brush though the one included works fine.

Overall I, recommend this product. I know some of you have this notion of local makeup products having poor quality but Fanny Serrano's eyebrow powder may prove you wrong. I have yet to try their other products like the foundation since I've been reading a lot of raves about it. =)

Now I can say I'm officially a fan of Fanny. =)


  1. Wow, this is a must buy and an eye opener(!) to high browed (!) folks who think local makeups are inferior to foreign ones. I just followed you! Follow me at

  2. Love this review, and how you featured local products. Lately, I find it more exciting kapag nakakahanap ako ng mura, lalo na kapag gawa dito.

  3. True! True! Applying makeup becomes more cost efficient because of good locally made products! :)

  4. I'm a fan of FS Cosmetics too, specially this product! You have a very lovely blog, full of info :) I had so much fun blog walking through it :) I just followed you, hope you can visit my blog and follow me too :) Thank you and looking forward to more posts!

    XOXO (

  5. Thank you for this information/review. I do agree that FS makeup products are awesome it is pigmented, easy to blend, etc. I wanted to have this but the lady from FS instead gave or showed me an eyeshadow pallete which i really thought were eyebrow powder. I realized i got the wrong product when i saw this blog/review of yours. Anyway since Fs products are great i am satisfied with the eyeshadows palletes that i bought. I know eyeshadows can be used for eyebrow but anyway i'll get this eyeshadow powder soon.
