Today's post is all about the brows! Whilst trying to write this post I realised there are no synonyms for this word so please forgive me if by the end you'll have THE WORD stuck in your head. You know which one I mean. Anyway...
Seems that "the bigger, the better" rule can be applied in this specific case since in the past couple of years more and more girls are trying to achieve the famous Cara Delevigne look. Now, there are people that are naturally born with sparse brows and need to do a lot of work with them and then there are the hairy girls like me that instead need to get them under control before looking like a cave woman.
For many years I have been oblivious that girls were using something to keep their brows in place. It was until I turned 16 that I heard some ex-classmates talk about their brow-routine. I was confused to say the least. Now, almost 5 years later I am the girl that tries to find that one product that will do the trick. How things have changed, hey.
Even though I do care about what shapes my face, I still found it too much to go all out and spend £20+ on some high end brow gels so I patiently waited for the high-street to catch up and make some cool releases. I was one of the first girls to try the Maybelline Master Sleek Brow Gel that came out last year and I wasn't particularly impressed with it. I made a video about it here (kinda cringey, it's one of my first ever videos on youtube!)
The point of the small story was that It will be no surprise to you then that when I spotted this brow gel in my local Superdrug the other week I literally almost screamed and bought it straight away. It just happened.
Now, onto the review...
Number of shades : 4 ( Clear, Blonde, Mild Brown, Dark Brown). My shade is Dark Brown.
Price : £3.99 but now it's on offer for £2.99 since it just launched!
The Product : It feels very light weight when applied and once it's dry it does't look crispy or fake. It does maintain my brows in place no matter what the weather conditions are. Smudge proof and fade proof for real! I literally got home completely wet - head to toe - the other day because of the rain - but girl, my brows were rocking! The brush is tiny and doesn't clump too much. I also liked that it doesn't put too much product on, so you can build it as it goes. You can definitely tell the difference though, once it's done.
This is all coming from a girl that has brows, obviously the results may be different if you need a lot more to play with to achieve your desired result. I could have gone for a clear gel but I do like to use some extra colour and some help to fill up possible gaps.
WORTH THE MONEY? YES!
FINAL SCORE : 10 /10
I am quite impressed. Well done, Rimmel!
My not so fab brow before.
After... and it's looking goooood!
