Brow Pencils … =]

Wet n Wild Color Icon Liner Brow & Eye Pencil $0.99

this brow pencil is quiet waxy, it’ll help to keep your brow hair in place. but its not the best for sparks brows.
also, it doesnt have the most natural finish. because the pencil is waxy, it’s doesn’t deposit as much color when applied. it’s easy to mess up, you can use a spoolie to brush off some color when applied too much, your brows will look like they are drawn on.
it’s great for touch up throughout the day though. it’s small, and affordable to keep in your makeup bag/purse. even if you lose it, it’s no biggie.

e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Lifter & Filler $3.00

this is a duo ended brow pencil, which has a brow color and a brow highlight on each end. i initially wanted to try out the highlighter side to see if it’d be a good alternative for benefit high brow.. and i was disappointed.

both the brow color and highlighter crease like no others. even with primers on. the pencil sharpener cap that it came with kept coming off and it’s just a mess to deal with.

i kept this pencil in my makeup bag for a while thinking even if i dont like it, i can at least use it for touch up. well, it ruined my makeup bag before i get to use it for touch up. i ended up tossing it away.


Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil $5.99

this is by far the best eyebrow pencil i’ve used. both drugstores and department stores.

it’s not too creamy or waxy, just the perfect texture to create the most natural looking brows (using brow pencils).

i don’t really understand why they put a brow comb at the end, i wish they come with a spoolie instead. also, there isnt much product in these pencils, it’ll only last you for a month or two.

Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil & Gel $6.49

heard a lot of good things about this brow product on youtube from MakeupByTiffanyD. i thought i’d give it a try..

holy moly, the brow gel smelled like crap. the scent was so strong that i have to bring it back and return it.

im not sure if i got the defective one, but it was the most chemically smelling cosmetic product i’ve encounter.

Brow Powders … =]


N.Y.C. Browser Brush-On Brow Kit with Tweezer $2.99

this is my very first brow product ever. i was still in college and barely started using makeup. when i got it, it only came in one color, im not sure if they have extended their color selection by now.

this is an average brow kit, the best thing in this kit was probably the tweezer, as i still have it and use it.

the wax and the powder can get pretty messy and gross looking after a while. the powder is on the red side.. i prefer my brow products to be on the cool tone side.

e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit $3.00

i remember i loved this product for a while and that i even got backups for it.

i hit pan on the tinted brow gel and thought it was the best brow product i’ve used ever. but later on i discovered something else that’s even better so i eventually got rid of all of these elf brow kits through makeupalley swaps.

the brow gel looks great when first applied, but it creases throughout the day and eventually left me with greasy brows. it’s not a pretty look. i assume it’d be better if i were to set it with the powder it came with, but the powder was so orange/red.. 😦

Anastasia Highlighting Brow Kit $20.00

got this brow kit back in 2010 when sephora came out with all these holiday kits during the friends and family sale. it was only $20 and it eventually went down to $16 after the holiday season.

it was the best $20 i ever spent on makeup. it gave the most natural finish. i cant recommend it enough. this kit is sold out since but i’d assume the regular Anastasia Brow Powder Duo would be just as good!

you will need a brow brush for this kit since it didnt come with one. i personally prefer natural hair over synthetic bristles.

the brow gel that it came with was pretty good too. it keeps my brow hair in place for the whole day.

Brow Gel … =]

e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame $3.00

i dont have much to say about this brow product, except don’t waste your money.

it doesn’t distribute color evenly and it left crumbs on my brows.

not sure if it’s good for touch ups but it smells funny too, so i just toss it away after trying it for a few times.

e.l.f. Essential Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara $1.00

didn’t do anything for my lashes or brows.

you might as well use water if you want to tame your brows haha

if you have problem taming your brow hair, try the Anastasia brow gel. i know it’s a lot more expensive but it actually works. if brow gel is just an extra step you do in your makeup routine and you don’t need it, you should just skip it. haha
