I agree that the right brow color is important. I can see how this brow powder would be too light for you. I love the darker Bobbi Brown powdered shadows for brows. Some Sephora stores are carrying Bobbi Brown products now and I think you can also order BB online from Sephora.
I have black brows as well and I use the zings for dark hair. The wax is going to make your brows look darker, well b/c it is wax so the powder will set it and help it look more natural. You will need to play with the product a little to find the right ratio of wax to powder in order to find what looks best with your hair color and skin tone, but you shouldnt worry, I am positive your brows will look "naturally" great.

Black would be too dark, you can try getting a dark brow pencil and color in between the hairs for a more natural look
I have black hair too, and kept making the mistake that my eyebrows needed to be black also. I was being told by friends & family that my brows looked "hard", "harsh", & like they were drawn on with a "Sharpie" marker because I was using black eyeshadow to fill them in. I finally listened to their advice and was told by the Sephora employee that we should never go with black, always a dark brown. And was she ever right! I look back at photos of myself and cringe with embarrassment now!! You may need to shop around for just the right shade of dark brown because some products have a reddish/clay tinge which was not right for me either. You can still use eyeshadow and the right angled brush if you find the correct shade, but please no black!!! Trust me on this....

Supposedly, you use a brow color that matches the lightest shade of your hair - if you've got brown or blonde highlights, then you'd use a lighter brow color. I've got brown hair, but black brows. On me, black brow color looks very harsh, so the brown does look better.

i have naturally jet black hair. i used to use a black eyeliner pencil to fill in my brows and they looked very unnatural in pictures...almost like tattoos. in my opinion, the dark powder works great with my eyebrows. i love how natural they look with the powder. if you're looking to change the shape of your eyebrows like make them a lot thicker, maybe this isnt the product for you because the dark brown color will noticeably contrast with your actual brows, especially if you have lighter skin.
