Too Faced Bulletproof Brows contentsToo Faced Bulletproof Brows backToo Faced Bulletproof Brows Universal Taupe reviewsToo Faced Bulletproof Brows Universal Taupe swatchesThis is my first experience with a gel for brows.  I must say, I’m totally hooked!  I find it much easier to fill in my sparse brows as well as make them appear more symmetrical.  The formula is easy to apply and blend.  Once it sets it won’t come off until you hit it with your makeup remover.  Be sure not to get a ton of product on the angled side.  You won’t need much and you’ll want it to appear as natural as possible.  I also recommend at least spot cleaning the angled brush after every use.  The leftover product will harden otherwise and will make for a not so lovely application the next time around.  I used Too Faced Bulletproof Brows in this photo.

The biggest downer people are going to experience is that this is only available in two shades – universal taupe and universal brunette.  These shades will certainly match a wide variety of people, but unfortunately won’t be a hit for everyone.  All we can hope for, is since it’s a new product for this brand, is that we’ll see some more shades in the future.  Because everyone needs Bulletproof Brows.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows retails for $30.00 and is available at Sephora, Ulta and toofaced.com.

Benefit Instant Brow Pencil & Gimme Brow Swatches & Review

Affiliate Links

I’m unofficially naming these two products the dynamic duo.  Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium and Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Light to Medium saved my face.  How?  Well, I recently went very blonde.  LOTS of highlights later, my brows were way too dark.  I ran off in search of a lighter shade to fill in my brows and while I was perusing the shelves of Sephora I remembered a video from Raeview where she sang the praises of both of these Benefit products.

IMG_2332 IMG_2335 IMG_2833The Instant Brow Pencil ($20.00) is available in three shades.  I chose the lightest shade which is light to medium.  The shade of this pencil is perfect for what I needed and is waxy enough to groom the brows easily without making them look heavy.  Because this pencil is more waxy than not I suggest filling in a bit, then brushing through with the spooly side.  Keep doing that as you go through the whole brow and you’ll have perfection at the end!

The Gimme Brow ($22.00) gel is only available in two shades, so I also chose light/medium in this one.  As far as formulas go it’s your general, water-resistant tinted brow gel.  The brush is what makes it special.  It’s a teeny tiny tapered spool brush, which makes it easy to fill in my thin brows and not get extra gel product anywhere that it shouldn’t be, thus ruining my eye look.  This product kept my brows looking tamed and groomed all day.

I’ll probably actually keep up with these shades for awhile.  I’m keeping the hair light but thinking of lacing some caramel through in a month or so.  My other brow pencils will likely still be too dark to go back to just yet.

What are your thoughts on this duo? 

Benefit products can be purchased at Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s and benefitcosmetics.com.

IT Cosmetics YBBB Brow Power Skinny Universal Pencil Swatches & Review

Press SampleAffiliate Links

Just when I think I’ve found the easiest way to do up my eye brows I get proven wrong.  IT Cosmetics has a wonderful YBBB (Your Brows But Better) product in the form of Brow Power Skinny Universal Eyebrow Pencil.

IMG_9403What QVC.com says about IT Cosmetics YBBB Brow Power Skinny Pencil:

What is it: The YBBB (Your Brows But Better) Brow Power Skinny Universal Eyebrow Pencil is an ultra-fine, high-definition, long-wearing automatic eyebrow pencil infused with cutting-edge brow-enhancing ingredients and technology.Who is it for: Anyone who wants their most natural-looking, beautiful brows ever! Also for anyone who wants brow-enhancing and conditioning benefits, wants to cover gray, and wants a soft, polished, naturally pretty look.
Why is it different: The super-skinny tip draws the tiniest of lines, allowing you to easily mimic the look of natural brow hairs, fill in your natural brow, and even cover gray. The spooly end brush gives a natural, polished look, and the universal shade works on all hair colors and skin tones.How do I use it: Use soft, feathery strokes to fill in your natural brow shape. Apply softer strokes to match lighter hair, including blonde and silver. Press harder for darker hair, including medium brown to black. As a finishing touch, lightly brush through brows with the spooly brush.

IMG_9399 IMG_9400IMG_0173The shade is in Universal Transforming Taupe and I think this would work best on people with medium to dark colored hair.  You can press harder for a deeper color and press lightly for a lighter color.  If you have very blonde or very dark brown-black hair you may find that this won’t work for you or you’d need to use it with another product.

I thought this pencil was quick and easily to fill in the brows and looked very natural.  Definitely one of the best I’ve tried.  Not to mention it’s water-proof, sweat-proof and smudge-proof… whew!!

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil retails for $24.00 can be purchased on QVC.

Billion Dollar Brows Swatches & Review

*this post contains a press sample

Your eyebrows are what frame your face.  They finish off your look, and let’s face it… some of us have some not so perfect brows (ME!).

Billion Dollar Brows has the tools to help you achieve perfect brows and maintain them so that they stay that way.IMG_7358

IMG_7776First you want to start off with the Brow Buddy.  The Brow Buddy is here to help you achieve and keep the perfect arch.  It’s here to show you how to start, arch and end your brows, leaving you with exactly the brow your face shape requires.  The kit comes complete with the Brow Buddy as well as the White Kohl Eyeliner for only $20.  This girl did an awesome tutorial on using the Brow Buddy Kit… marked herself all up and put it on YouTube to help us all out!

Now that your brows have the right shape, use the Universal Brow Pencil ($15 and so much cheaper than the DiorShow Brow Styler!) to fill them in and perfect.  I’m wearing the pencil in this FOTD.  It was so easy to use and didn’t come off looking unnatural or harsh.

Finally, finish off by coming through brows with the Brow Gel ($15) to tame and polish.

What do you think of the Brow Buddy?  What are your favorite tips for shaping and maintaining brows?

You can purchase these items and more directly on the Billion Dollar Brows website or by finding a retailer near you.

Chantecaille Eye Brow Perfector Brush Photos & Review

I don’t own anything from Chantecaille (except for maybe a mini-gloss), so why not start off an obsession with a makeup brush?  The Chantecaille Eye Brow Perfector Brush grabbed my attention because of the of the jaw-like look to the brush end.

162Isn’t that neat?  It made me think, wow… that must really do some wondrous things to brows and be super innovative since I’ve never seen anything like it before.  It sat in my Nordstrom cart for about a month before I went for it.

155What the Nordstrom site has to say about the Chantecaille Eye Brow Perfector Brush:

A small, dual-ended brush, ideal for maintaining eyebrow shape and blending color. Made of luxuriously soft boar hair.

157This brush manages to pick up the perfect amount of powder and makes it simple to dab along the brow and then blend.  Flip it around to use the spoolie side to comb through the brows and you have the perfect eye brow every time.

If you tend towards getting too sharp of a line with your regular angled brow brush, consider this to make the brow look more natural and refined.

The Chantecaille Eye Brow Perfector Brush retails for $23.00 and is available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.
