Eyebrows are a relatively new thing for me. I don’t have to do much with mine – they are straight across and only require the plucking of an odd stray hair every couple of weeks or so. That said, the hairs are quite long and can be somewhat unruly and the start is a little bit sparse. So, in other words, all up my brows are good but could be better.
I discovered the joys of eyebrow gels via Maybelline’s excellent Brow Drama a couple of years ago. Pencil tends to look too harsh on me and while I need a bit of colour to plump them up, I also need something to hold them in place. The Maybelline has a lovely big fluffy brush but I never quite found the gel dark enough. From there I graduated to Benefit Gimme Brow which has the best dark colour and does a brilliant job of filling in any gaps. Only problem is the brush is tiiiiiny and I found it hard to navigate on my face. Also I often made mistakes with this one and when it got on my skin it was hard to get off. A great product all up but one that needed a lot of work invested in it to make it work properly.
Luckily I seem to have found my goldilocks porridge. The L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper has a gel that is darker than the Maybelline but not as dark as the Benefit, plus it has the exact same brush as the Benefit only twice the size. I absolutely love it and it’s become a real go-to for me and makes me look that extra bit groomed. The gel does a good job giving my brows a tint of colour and holds them in place all day, plus the brush is just so easy to use. I also find that if I do make a mistake it’s also easier to correct and get it off my skin than the Benefit one. I never considered myself an eyebrow girl but, well, there you have it. Appears that I am worth it after all, as they say.
