If you know me, then chances are – you’ll know my brows. Maybe not personally per say (one day), but you’ll no doubt be aware of em. I mean, plonked amidst the whole pale hair/skin/otherwise-featureless-face combo that I’ve got goin’ on – well, a big ol’ set of brows can be a little striking to say the least. Especially dark uns. But you know what? That, is most definitely how I like it. In fact, I dare say I can’t imagine life without em now. Seriously? Oh, absolutely. But, and as much as it pains me to admit it, that kinda brow-love wasn’t always the case.
Natural and Fuller-looking Eyebrows
In fact, I really did pluck my poor eyebrows to oblivion during those early teenage years – achieving myself some pretty special brow-looks along the way, I’ll have you know. I mean, were single-filed brow hairs really ever a good look for anyone? Doubt it. Unless you’re Gwen Stefani, obviously. Fear not though, I’ve (clearly) learnt my lesson on that front. And boy, have they sprouted back with a vengeance. Although fortunately for me, the more natural and fuller-looking brows just happen to be big news just now. But you know – appearances aside, my bare brows really ain’t the best. There’s very little in the way of any arch, the front bits seldom grow at all and of course, there’s plenty o’ hairs that just won’t plain ball. But hey, you gotta work with what you’ve got, right?
BILLION DOLLAR BROWS BROW POWDER
Of course, it was inevitable that such recent brow-hype would be followed by a generous influx of new products – all promising to take you that one step closer to the strong set of brows you’ve been craving. And believe me, I’ve tried my fair share of them. Tints, pencils, gels, whatever. You name it. I’ve been there, done that – and with many many fails along the way. I mean, how can ‘soft blonde’ possibly translate to ginger? So the latest little addition to my full-blown brow arsenal – BILLION DOLLAR BROWS BROW POWDER, what d’ya reckon?
Well I don’t know about you, but just the mere suggestion of achieving brows that do in fact look a billion dollars is more than enough to have me parting with the pennies. And from a company whose sole focus in life is all-things-brow? You just know it’s gonna be a good un. So that’s some high expectations right there? Oh, you betcha. And you know what? This stuff really is everything I’d hoped for. And more.
So first up. And as far as the shade range goes – you needn’t worry. Offered up in the four usual suspects (all matte obvs) and ranging from the lightest blonde to the deepest raven; they’ve got all bases (well, brows) covered. And I must say, the colour matches themselves are pretty spot on too. These guys, they know their stuff. Okay. Although it’s reasonably clear that I’m nowhere near to brunette myself, this taupey-kinda colour is truly the epitome of brow-perfection for me – neither too warm nor too cool. Just, flawless. And listen up, I reckon their very lightest hue would be the perfectshade for all you blondes out there that face the struggle in finding a good fit in that department. Steering well clear of any red or brassy undertones, it’s just a dream. Sure, some brow powders can be a bit of a faff. But with this stuff? Not a problem. Used either wet (for a stronger finish) or dry, and coupled with your ol’ faithful angled brush – you’ll be laughing. Even I can do it. And as for the texture? Well, it’ll rival the best of em. Silky smooth yet effortlessly blendable. No fallout, no nothing.
In fact, I can quite literally throw on a decent set of brows without even trying in a matter of minutes. And that, is a success in my books. Then when it comes to that oh-so-important colour pay off – a knock out. Seriously. Unlike others, you get a whole lotta pigment for your money with this baby. So much so, I reckon that little pot’ll last me an absolute life time. Literally. And you know, the lasting power is out of this world too. Once it’s on – it’ll budge for no one. Believe me, there’ve been many-a 13 hour day that’ll vouch for me on that one. Yet all the while, looking as fresh and sculpted as the moment you chucked it on. I know. I don’t get how they do it either guys. But what I am certain of, is that I’m head over heels for this one. You’ll be left with those super sculpted yet oh-so-natural brows that actual dreams are made of. At least mine are, anyway. Trust me.
Besides, every day deserves to be a good brow day – right?
You lot tried anything from BD Brows, I wonder? I’ve got my pen and paper at the ready..
