If I could give my teenage self one piece of advice, it would be...don't tweeze your own eyebrows!!
I feel like so many of us fall victim to the dreaded over-plucking and, with brows becoming a staple in the make up world again, we're pretty much screwed.
I'm sad to say my brows are quite bad and have a few sparse patches that I'm desperately trying to grow out.
Ever since Cara Delevigne burst into the modelling world with her naturally full brows, the make up world fell over itself desperately trying to recreate the look.
With bushy brows fashionable again, every make up brand started pumping out brow products like nobodies business, hoping to cash in on this latest must-have.
I for one am always eager to try out these new releases as anything that can help my brows is a winner in my book.
The latest release that I have tried out for you guys is the Brow Satin brow pencil from Maybelline so read on to hear my thoughts!
What They Say
This pencil is all you need for natural looking brows!
On one side there's a gel-pencil for filling in gaps and shaping the brow and on the other side you'll find a powder that promises to define and set the brow.
What I Say
I tend to enjoy using these double-ended brow products, they're usually really handy to pop in your bag as one of those do-it-all products.
The gel pencil is good for filling in my sparse brows, it feels comfortable on the skin without being rough and dragging, I chose the shade Dark Brown and it was a good match for my dark brows
The powder on the other side is very pleasant to use, it feels velvety soft and does a good job of making your finished brows look natural.
I was worried about how long a powder set would last on my unruly brows however and opted to use a brow gel most days instead but, if you like that natural no make up look then the powder is great to just sweep through the brows on it's own.
All in all, I really like this product and think it's a bargain at around €8 so check it out guys!
