Here’s an in-depth review of Freedom PRO HD Brow Palette in Medium Dark.
And because kilay is life, let me share my thoughts about this brow palette by Freedom Makeup London.
Freedom Makeup London is one of those affordable makeup brands on the market. Unfortunately, they are not available locally but you can still get them from online sellers on Facebook or Shopee. I’ve been using the duo brow powder in Ebony and I love it.
Some say it is the perfect dupe for Anastasia Dip Brow. Though I can’t really tell since I haven’t tried the ABH yet. Nevertheless, I’m pretty much happy with Freedom Duo Brow Powder. I actually hit the pan so I decided to purchase the brow palette as part of my professional makeup kit. Bought this palette for P730 in Shopee.
This palette includes everything you need to create and maintain professionally defined brows.
Available in Fair/Medium and Medium/Dark. Each palette includes 6x Duo eyebrow powders, 4x Stencils, 1x Highlighter, 1x Arch enhancing wax, 1x Eyebrow brush with a widescreen mirror.
The packaging is made of a high-quality cardboard. It is very sturdy and easy to travel with. Furthermore, its matte black finish makes it professional looking and more expensive than it actually is.
I noticed that these look darker than the actual pans.
I chose Medium Dark to accommodate Filipina complexion. And since this palette has a total of 12 shades, I can easily mix and match depends on the client’s natural brow color.
Here are the swatches:
The powders have a buttery texture with fallouts.
I used my fingers on the swatches, so you will expect more fallouts when using a brush. Though I didn’t find it as an issue since the pigmentation is quite good. Especially those darker shades. For the lighter shades, you’ll need two to three swipes to be opaque. I find the application very easy as it glides smoothly on the brows and blends easily too.

The highlighter, on the other hand, feels soft and has a satin finish. This can also make a good highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes.

The enhancing wax is creamy and blends beautifully into the skin.

I’m not a fan of brow stencils since I always refer to client’s natural brow shape. However, it is nice to have one in case you need a reference. I find the brow brush too soft and thick. I still prefer to use my Marrionaud Double Ended Eyebrow Brush.
Longevity-wise, this stays all day especially if you set it with a brow gel.
What I like about Freedom Makeup London PRO HD Brow Palette:
- The packaging looks expensive and professional-looking
- Consists of 12 brow shades, 1 highlighter, and 1 wax, super steal for the price.
- Pigmented but not intense, perfect for natural-looking brows
- Easy to work with and blends beautifully
- Brow powders can also be used as eyeshadows
- Has a built-in mirror though mine was damaged when it arrived 🙁
- Lasts all day especially if you set it with a brow gel
What I don’t like:
- Not available locally
- The brow brush is useless lols.
