If you are anything like me you go through quite the ordeal to maintain your brows, whether waxing, threading or tweezing. My personal preference is threading because I feel that I can go a bit longer without  maintenance. Like many women out there,  my brows don’t seem to grow where I want them and it is a constant battle to shape them to my taste. Not any more — enter Benefit brows a-go-go brow and eye shaping kit.

Some of us know the tips and tricks to get the perfect brow arch and shape for our face but  might not know how to properly shade or fill in sparse brows to get a full, yet natural look.  I am currently trying to grow out by brows because my last  trip to the brow stylist left my brows extremely thin — not my preference.  So, while I am trying to grow thicker and fuller brows Benefit brows a-go-go brow and eye shaping kit has been a life saver – or should I say, brow saver.

I am new to the whole filling in the brows routine and I couldn’t ask for anything better than Benefit brows a-go-go brow and eye shaping kit to teach me. I recently went lighter on my hair color and bleached my eyebrows a bit, so, the two shades of Brow Zing powder  in the kit makes it easy to mix and match to get the shade brow I want.  The kit comes with simple instructions and the perfect shades of Brow Zing powder for me. I love the Brow Zing Wax to help with brow shaping. The Smoking Liner applied to base of the lash gives that extra pop to set off even the shortest lashes. With the Brow Highlighter and the Eye Bright Powder you perfect the look of your brow and wake up any sleepy eye.

Following these steps to brow perfection:

  1. Shape Brows with Brow Zing Wax
  2. Fill in & Set Brows with Brow Zing Powder(s)
  3. Emphasize Eyes with Brow Highlighter Powder under the brow arch
  4. Look Wide awake with Eye Bright on inner and outer Corners
Behold, brow perfection and overall eye happiness!  

I am still new to this routine  but I think that benefit brows a-go-go kit is great for brow shaping beginners like me because it is super easy to use. It will also be good for those tweezer happy gals out there that get a little carried away when maintaining their brows, as well as the makeup artist who wants one brow product to use on a multiple clients.

Have you tried benefit brows a-go-go?

The kit retails for $38  and is available on benefit website and Macys.

Brow maintenance.  While often an afterthought of one’s daily makeup routine, sparse or wimpy brows can just ruin that makeup masterpiece you are trying to create each morning.  See exhibit A below – my unfilled-in brows.  Pitiful.  Sad.  And frightening if you ask me since I am not wearing any makeup at all!   But stay with me, your brows will thank you, and maybe me.

Now that we are all comfortable with each other, bare-faced and all, let’s get down to the star of the post.  Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector.  Being the product junkie that I am, I have been around the block with trying brow products.  Many are often just a one hit wonder, however this product made me proud to commit.  “Long-lasting, smudge-proof and creamy” aptly describes the wear-ability of this corrector, while the ease of application makes it almost fool proof.  Squeeze out a smidgen (that is somewhere between a tidbit and a pinch) onto the back of your hand, and with a slanted angle brush, make short quick strokes through your brow.  Much like I am doing below – again with no makeup. Gah!

Let the brush do the work, but do use a light hand when applying because the color will darken once it hits the skin (I used Shade #2).  Let’s see how it looks!

Voila!  Makes quite the difference when compared to a bare brow.  Now jump in the shower, run a marathon, hit the beach or go to work, because this stuff is not moving!  You are guaranteed a worry-free brow day.  And isn’t that the kind of day we all really want to have?  We also want a boss who gives us a raise, no red lights, projects done on time and dinner on the table at 6,  kind of day – but baby steps for now.

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector is available at Sephora and retails for $20.

The best thing  about RevitaBrow is that it is super easy to use. The product is formulated with “peptides and botanicals for strengthening, conditioning and nourishing.”  It is applied once daily on clean brows to promote growth and fullness.

I have been shaping my eyebrows since I was 10 years old (dramatic, I know). I wasn’t shaping because they were thick and out of control. I shaped them because they were fine and the little hairs always seemed to droop all the way down to my lashes.  When I was assigned to review RevitaBrow I was beside myself with glee.

After the first few days of using RevitaBrow I had a little peeling, but after the initial peeling, my skin returned to normal. After four weeks of using  RevitaBrow, my eyebrows are a little darker but still  somewhat sparse. I wonder if using the product for an additional four weeks will yield better results?!

In my assessment, RevitaBrow is probably best for individuals who once had full brows but lost the fullness due to over shaping.  If you’ve never had a full brow (like me!) I doubt this product will suddenly sprout hairs. However, all hope is not lost….Check out Felicia’s post on brow enhancers.

When it comes to brow enhancing products, your options now greatly extend beyond the choice of pencil or powder. There’s a wide array of product offerings from which to choose….from powder wax duos, to felt tip markers and everything in between. Learn about the latest in brow enhancement innovations as ThisThatBeauty helps you navigate the best of brow enhancing products currently available!

Laura Geller Brow Marker is a long lasting brow color product that is ideal for women who desire a durable formula that will cling to both skin and hair. For women with sparse brows or completely hairless sections, this product is helpful. The thin, precise soft-tipped brow marker dries instantly and wears all day without fading.

Smashbox Brow Tech Trio is an innovative 3-in-1 product that creates beautifully groomed, natural looking brows. The convenient everything-you-need palette includes a lighter shade of powder to fill in brows, a darker shade of powder to define brows, and a grooming wax to set your brows and keep them in place all day. Smashbox Brow Tech Trio is available in blonde, taupe/soft brown, auburn, brunette, and dark brown.

A universal brow product IS possible! It Cosmetics proves this with BROW POWER, a universal brow pencil with active brow enhancing technology that claims to aid the regrowth of brows. The shade of the pencil adjusts based on the amount of pressure that is applied. As a makeup artist, this product is a god-send when working on set on multiple clients. There’s no need to switch between brow pencils for light and dark haired clients, I simply adjust the amount of pressure when applying. Genius!

One of my favorite skincare brands, Chella, recently launched a new brow product that I think you will love! The Brow Color Kit contains the essential tools needed to give your brows shape, depth, and highlight sparkle. Available in four shades (beautiful blonde, awesome auburn, luscious light brown, dazzling dark brown), the brow kit includes a sleek European designed brow pencil, glistening lace highlighter, defining gel, and sharpener for the brow pencil and highlighter. This kit is perfect for individuals who prefer pencil products. If you have sparse areas that require a fill-in here and there (like me!), The Brow Color Kit is perfect!

Smart on-the-go products make this busy Beauty Girl extremely happy! Smashbox Brow Tech To Go is a dual ended brow tool that provides both a pencil and setting gel in one streamlined tool! How bright are the folks over at Smashbox?! Both portable and travel friendly, this gem of a brow tool offers precise application and perfect grooming. Sometimes I skip the pencil end and go straight for the grooming gel. It’s amazing what a little grooming gel can do to frame the face!

Christi Harris Lift-N-Lite is like an eye lift in a tube! If you have weak, sagging brows or heavy upper lids (like me!) this product can help you achieve a more lifted and youthful appearance. Watch this video demo…I can show you better than I can tell you:)
