Brow fails.

I have my Dad's eyebrows.. blonde and sparse. Great! If you have these fail brows like myself then I'm sure you can feel my pain. If I do my eye make-up without filling in my eyebrows I just end up looking..strange. 

They are a little darker here as they have foundation and powder in them..

I'm forever on the lookout for new brow products that will deliver full yet natural-looking eyebrows. The hunt continues..
Here are two fails I have come across during my search.

Revlon "Brow Fantasy" in the shade Dark Blonde - £7.99 

Okay this isn't terrible it's just not good. Why do companies think all blonde folk want warm, gingery brows?! It's simply too warm toned and not precise enough. You need to sharpen it so often to keep a precise nib that you end up going through this far too quickly. It's like drawing your eyebrows on with crayon and the gel isn't much better. The brush doesn't pick up any gel so I can't even tell you if the formula is any good! 2/5.

Now.. for the worst of them all. I have used many brow products from MUA to MAC. I had decent hopes for Maybelline but my oh my have they created an awful brow product. It's the "Master Shape" brow pencil in Dark Blond. Okay this is only £2.99 but that doesn't give it the right to be so, so bad. It has no colour pay-off when applying to your brows and is just SO waxy that the eyebrow hairs that I do have just cling together for dear life.
L-R Revlon , Maybelline
  The texture of this means that if you want to apply any powder/pencil over the top it will just not apply evenly and clings in patches. Please stay away from this folks! Even the spoolie is pretty useless.. *sigh*.

Sorry to be a Negative Noreen but I'd rather you save your pennies than waste them on these poor products like I have! I'm currently trying out some new eyebrow purchases and I shall let you know how I get on with them very soon!



  1. I agree, I have never gotten on with the maybelline pencil either. My favourite go-to is the MAC lingering and spiked pencils & then the Makeup Forever Aqua brows, waterbroof and great options for the fair people!

    1. I go through MAC "Lingering" ridiculously quickly and I'm a bit skint at the mo sadly! I shall put the MUFE on my list, thankyou! X
