Brows On Point?♥

Not long ago did I still just consider my eyebrows as just eyebrows. Now everyone's buying the latest brow products to get their desired brows. I've recently tried three brow products out which have all gave me excellent results and left me as happy as Larry with my brows (when they like to co-operate and sit in place that is..)

A huge percentages of bloggers own or use Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. Sadly, I'm still quite a newbie brow amateur and haven't caught on yet (I'll get there). I like quickness with my brows because I haven't got the act yet so the products I use don't take much time.

The Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara was the first product I bought for my brows back in August time. I had heard so much about this product, heard it was a dupe for Benefit's Gimme Brow and thought it'd be ideal for someone unskilled with brows like me. Turns out it's actually alright. Better than alright. I got mine in Dark Brown because my hair is dark and wanted it to match. This is fantastic for adding colour into your brows, keeping them in place and filling in any sparce areas of my brows (of course not fully because it's only a mascara). It's handy to use on "lazy makeup days" or for a quick makeup look!

Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil & Brush* has been a brow product I've wanted to try out for ages. When I received this in the post the other week, I was delighted and over the moon! The excitement was real. I have mine in Hot Chocolate which is a perfect brown for us brunettes, plus, the name is cute. I find this product easy to work with, plus, it fills in my brows easily. I can notice a difference straight away and my brows look naturally fuller and more defined. With this product, you can go dramatic or natural, whatever your preference is! I like defined and almost bolder brows so enjoy using this.

My last product which is also another pencil is Threads Illuminata Brow Pencil*. This was the first brow pencil I ever owned, and it's fair to say, I wasn't 100% certainly sure what I was doing. Thankfully, it isn't too hard to get to terms with and isn't too dark either so isn't intimidating to use. It's creamy so when you brush through your brows with the spoolie, it will blend out so you're not left with any harsh lines. I reach for this quite often as I feel it leaves me with natural eyebrows which aren't very noticeable.

Personally, I think my favourite brow products are the pencils. I find them easy to use and look quite natural too. At first they look scary, but they honestly aren't. I have actually enjoyed using them as I'm becoming quite happy with how my brows look!

What's your brow secrets? How do you get them "on point"?

  1. I haven't tried the tinted Maybelline Brow Drama yet but I'm almost done a tube of the clear one. It's good stuff! I'm almost at the end of my Gimme Brow but I can't face paying for it again so I'll definitely try out the tinted Brow Drama and see if it's as good.

    2. I recently discovered brow brush mascara at the Benefit brow bar. What the heck? Where have I been? It like a gift from the makeup gods because I have light brows. Thanks for sharing a cheaper version.

  2. I've been really craving for the Archery brow pencil for ages! So many rave about it. At the moment I'm testing Rimmel's Brow This Way brow gel and so far so good! Which is already a huge compliment towards the product, because my brows are sooo difficult :D Great post <3

  3. I've recently just started experimenting filling my eyebrows in after having a bit of a plucking disaster! My only problem is my eyebrows are so dark compared to my natural hair colour for some stupid reason so I worry filling them in will make them stand out more, but I've been using the collection 200 brow kit, although it's cheap it's really good as you can just use tiny amounts and it looks so natural! Thanks for sharing :) xx

  7. I prefer using brow powders as I think they give a lot more natural look and also it's easier to work with them. But I must say that on a lazy day eyebrow pencil comes in handy for me!
    I love Maybelline Brow Drama. Does a great job at keeping all of the little eyebrow hairs tamed, haha. Soup&Glory Brow Archery has been on my wish list for ages now! Really hope to get my hands on it very soon :) x

  10. I've got very very thick eyebrows so I don't do much but trim them, brush them through, and fill in the ends with brown eyeshadow :D I'm so lazy, I might need to brush up my eyebrow skills because my eyebrows look inadequate next to all the beauty bloggers eyebrows haha! I'll have to try one of these out, they look and sound great!! (:

  21. OOH I love that first one! The Maybelline one, the brush looks so interesting, definitely different than any other ones I've seen. When I first starting doing my brows, I also had the Anastasia pomade but it was much too difficult for me to learn to use and I looked crazy. I bought her brow pencil instead which is SO EASY omg and now it's one of my Holy Grail products. I'm interested in trying out other brow pencils so this review was super helpful. Thank you!

  33. Oh goodness...eyebrows! I actually have one eyebrow that is lower than the other. You can definitely tell in pictures. It has been the bane of my existence but as of the last 6 months I have really upped my brow game. I've learned about anchor points and blending and gels, and they are looking better! They are definitely more of the bold variety but hey, at least they look more even!
