As far as my boyfriend is concerned, eyebrows are just handy strips of hair to stop sweat getting into his eyes when he's at the gym, but oh my gosh aren't they just SO much more than that?! I never exercise, so any sweat-barrier ideas Mother Nature had when she designed eyebrows are completely lost on me, but that doesn't mean I'm going to go all Miley Cyrus on you and get rid of them. Actually, I'm more likely to go out and buy a shit ton of eyebrow products and make them more obvious than ever, which is exactly what I've done.
After all those adolescent years plucking and preening our brows, we now want them thick and natural looking again a la Cara Delevigne. I've used my fair share of brow products in the past, from Benefit to Bourjois, from creams to pencils, but I think I may have finally found a combination that actually works. My latest eyebrow must-have is the new Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara by Maybelline.
I've been using this wonderful little wand for the past week or so and I really like it. My eyebrows are kind of bushy at the beginning (?) and then neaten out towards the end, which is fine, but sometimes they have a mind of their own and the hairs don't point in the direction I want them to. The stresses of disobedient brows, you do not understand! Just brush this mascara through to style them, then when it dries, they stay put. Huzzah! It's not too thick, there's no clumps and it looks natural. Job done.
This product doesn't do much in the way of filling any gaps though, so I tend to rely on my trusty Rimmel eyebrow pencil for that. If you have disobedient, bushy brows like mine, then this is just the ticket at a very reasonable price, but if your brows are already pretty neat, well then this probably won't do much for you.
What are your brow must-haves?
