Browse Brows…

 

 

imageThere are so many new and varied eyebrow products on the market and as brows are highly fashionable at the moment, I thought I would try a few out.  I have never really used anything on my brows as they are quite thick, only occasionally using a pencil to fill in any gaps.  In a recent Birchbox was “More Brows”, which having tried, I am now a total convert.  I have tried and tested all the products here and was pleasantly surprised by some and disappointed by others.

MAYBELLINE  BROW DRAMA

This was the first product I tried, and I have to say it was disappointing.  The applicator is an unusual design and I found it awkward to used – I used my own spooly to apply the product.  However, it flaked and looked pretty bad in a short time.  It costs £4.99.  www,maybelline.co.uk.

COLLECTION DEFINE AND PERFECT

This product is a liquid that dries to a powder.  I found it quite dry and does not apply easily.  Quite disappointing at £4.19. www.collectioncosmetics.co.uk.

STUDIO 10 BROWLIFT PERFECTING LINER

This is a double ended pencil, one end for brows the other end for highlighting.  This pencil is very hard and especially the highlighter.  I found it too harsh.  Costs £22.  Definitely overpriced in my opinion. www.studio10beauty.com.

L’OREAL BROW ARTIST GENIUS KIT,

This little kit uses a wax and powder.  This is a different type of eyebrow application and it may take me a little while to get used to.  I did like it, but found the application brush a little too small, so I used my own.  Cost is £9.99.  www.loreal-paris.co.uk.

SOAP AND GLORY ARCHERY 2 IN 1 BROW SCULPTING CRAYON AND SETTING GEL

This has an angled crayon on one end which I found to be too hard on my skin and on the other end is the setting gel, which I did like.  Costs £10.00. www.soapandglory.com.

MODEL CO MORE BROWS

This I love.  It applies easily and stays in place all day.  Costs £13.00. www.modelcocosmetics.com.

SEVENTEEN BROW’S THAT! BROW KIT

This was a surprise.  I thought that I wouldn’t like this, but in actual fact, I thought it gave a really good result.  Again, the brush is too small so I used my own. Firstly, you apply the wax in smooth strokes to shape and define brows.  Then apply the setting powder.  There is also a highlighter which is very smooth and blendable. There is also a pencil for filling in gaps. I will definitely be using this again.  Costs £5.99 www.boots.com.

Just a little footnote – the eyebrow brushes I use are Bobbi Brown’s small angled brush and Eyelure’s small angled brush and spooly.

There are loads more products out there, I would love to hear of your experiences with other eyebrow gels, powders and pencils.
