I can only use one of the brow powders in the Auburn/Red kit, as the powders are quite warm and darker than I anticipated. NYX describes the Auburn/Red shades as a "matte red brown/matte brown with slight red tones", but I interpret them a little differently.
Shade 1 is a medium brown with strong red tones - it leans almost a little burgundy. This shade is too dark for me and better suited for those with auburn or very dark red hair.
Shade 2 is a light, tawny brown with much subtler warm tones. This is a great match and will work well for medium red hair colors like my own.
[It looks better from a more reasonable distance. Brow closeups are hard!]
NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder is an awesome, well rounded brow kit. The shade Auburn/Red is a must have for red heads, I think it'll be part of my beauty arsenal for a long time. I like pretty much everything about this product - the powders are pigmented, the wax provides great hold, and the packaging is compact and sturdy. You will need a separate angled brush though, the included one is pretty much useless. I definitely recommend the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder kit, its so affordable and the quality is just great.
