Let’s Talk Brows

Let's Talk Brows | Best drugstore eyebrow products

I’ve always envied those who have thick eyebrows, because I think they are good and you can shape them however you like.Β I’m one of these unlucky people who don’t have thick brows and can’t make them grow. Whenever I decide to let them grow, it just doesn’t grow or it grows really ridiculously funny…

Or even sometimes I end up losing more than it grows, I don’t know why. I like to try natural remedies. For instance, did you know that garlic or almond oil makes your brows grow? However, they didn’t even work for me. So what do we do? It is good that there are some brow products.

Products I use for my Brows

There are so many brow products out there, for instance, there are brow sets like e.l.f Studio Eyebrow Kit. I like it and use it quite a lot. I can say it is a good and affordable product. All you do is apply some waxy stuff and this setting powder, and then you’re ready to go. Then there are pencils like Soap & Glory Archery, which is also affordable and really good. It has really fine pencil bit and a brush, all in one product. All you need to do is to brush the brows and fill in the gaps, easy peasy. The last one I want to talk about is Rimmel Brow This Way eyebrow gel. I can say it is ok, but could have been better. The brush is quite big, so it can get a bit messy (this is the bit I don’t like about it), except that it holds my brows in shape.

When I am in rush and can’t spend so much time on makeup then I use Rimmel gel, but my favourite product is Soap & Glory Archery. Β When I use this product, I have full control and I can be as precise as I want.

So what do you use for your brows? There are powders, pencils or mascaras all aim to do the almost same thing. However, which one would you prefer?

    I have super thick black/brown eyebrows, but trust me they aren’t as nice as you think. They need maintenance constantly. I’m sure if I left them they would join in the middle, join at my hair and take up half my forehead lol
    despite my bushy brows I don’t have an arch, so I know I don’t need to fill, but I do to make them look more human, I use the urban decay basics palette, I mix the brown and black Then set with Loreal brow plump. (totally recommend that)
    I cant use archery as its not dark enough πŸ™
    Love the post! And im sure your brows look fab! I know a few girls who remove theirs to do a full ombre affect. Sometimes its good not to have uncontrollable brows hehe

    • I’ve never had a single hair in the middle which I am happy about. I guess just because I can’t have thick brows, I think it is good to have them. Never thought about the maintenance bit πŸ™‚ I am planning to get Loreal one, as I am not really happy with Rimmel one. xx

  • Love all of these!! x

  • I have very thick eyebrows. And sometimes I wish I didn’t! I have to pluck them like every single day πŸ™
    Girls are like that all the time πŸ™‚ Who has curly hair wants to have straight and the other way around! And the same with eyebrows :)))

    • Ha ha you are right, we always want what we don’t have πŸ™‚ xx

  • Tinted brow gels are my favourite way of keeping my brows tamed with a bit of natural definition, but I haven’t tried this particular one from Rimmel. I’m currently using the Benefit one because the brush is tiny x

    • I like the product itself however that brush is so big like a mascara brush. I heard great things about Benefit one. Worth giving it a try. xx

  • Eyebrows are so hard to get right, but when they are its so satisfying. Love all these!

    • You are right. Once you get it right then everything is better! x

    • I like S&G too, they have so many great products. Archery is good, I keep using it and my favourite product. xx

  • I need to try out these products! Great post.

    Anika | http://www.anikamay.co.uk

  • I use the S&G Pencil everyday, its so so good! I also think a brow gel is amazing if you don’t have the thickest brows-my favourite is the L’oreal Brow Artist Plumper, which really makes a huge difference and makes the most of every eyebrow πŸ™‚

    • S&G is great, I use it almost everyday too! I haven’t used L’Oreal one yet however definitely it is on the shopping list πŸ™‚

  • Brows are such an important part of ones face and really make a difference to the overall look when groomed and looked after properly! I used to use a brow kit but now I leave them to grow and keep them bushy with a brow gel!

    • You are definitely right! I decided to let them grow too so let’s see how it gets *fingers crossed* xx

  • My brows are very sparse and so blonde that you can see them unless I pencil them in. I use a combination of a NYX micro pencil and Ardell brow powder. πŸ™‚

    • I have black brows however I have so much gap so I have to use something to fill them up *sigh* I’ve heard about NYX one but not Ardell. xx

  • I’m currently loving NYX’s new eyebrow pencil! Eyebrows are such an important part of the face; nice post!

    • I haven’t tried it, I make sure to pick one up when I see it πŸ™‚ Have a great day xx

  • Oooh I never knew garlic makes your brows grow!! That’s interesting πŸ™‚ I use L’Oreal’s Brow Artiste pencil in Blonde. It comes with a gel pencil on the other side so you can set them, so it’s super handy! I used to use a bit of eyeshadow as well but it was just too much faff in the mornings haha xx

    • Powders are great however too much work, they used to be my fave however now I prefer the pencil more. xx

  • Ellie Adams

    I have to say, the Soap and glory archery pencil is my absolute fave but I love the look of the palette and brow gel as well πŸ™‚

  • I’m all about Benefit Gimme Brow, can’t manage without it!

    • I heard it is really good, haven’t tried it yet unfortunately xx

  • La Travelera

    Great info! I do not do anything to my brows so it is really useful πŸ™‚

  • I have sparse brows as well so I feel your pain. I products ass volume like Benefit Gimme Brow and Lashfood Browfood which both have the fibers. πŸ™‚

    • *sigh*
      They sound really good. I must definitely get them πŸ™‚ xx

  • My Soap and Glory brow product broke! Definitely want to repurchase one from there to properly try out! I always feel good when I have my brows on and i’m a fan of the brow kit by elf too x

    han // em&han xo

    • It is really thin, that’s what I like about it. You can draw really fine lines so that the brows don’t look so fake πŸ™‚ Elf is good, I’ve been using their brow products for years x

  • I’ve been using the elf eyebrow kit for years. I’ve gone through at least 6 of them. So easy to use, cheap, and works well. It’s because of that I haven’t searched for anything else.

    • Elf brow kit is really good and affordable. I like it

  • lovely round up! I’ve heard the soap and glory one is a good dupe for my favourite brow pencil the brow wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills, need to try it one day πŸ™‚

    Iqra |The Blushing Giraffe x

    • I haven’t tried Anastasia one, I heard it is really good and people were talking about S&G being a good dupe of it so I got it instead πŸ™‚ I like it, it is really good πŸ™‚ xx

  • Marina

    Totally with you on the brow front. I’m a pencil girl then blend with a brush to avoid the super ‘fake’ look

    Marina | http://www.marina-simone.blogspot.co.uk

    • I just make sure not to get a fake look, it just doesn’t look right x

  • I prefer brow gels that’s thick and not runny so it stays in place.

  • I’ve tried as well to grow my eyebrows with natural methods, i’ve used castor oil, and they was more healthy and they’ve grow a bit, but mostly random:)) so yeah i am using as well a kit for eyebrow from MUA, and a mascara from L’oreal a light / medium shades to color my eyebrows.

    http://Www.amisroom.co

    • Apparently natural methods don’t really work on everyone but on some lucky ones. You are using some good products, I heard L’Oreal is really good x

  • these eyebrows stuffs are really addictive huh. once you’ve seen yourself with the perfect brows, you would never ever go one day without making sure they are perfect! hahahaha

    • Definitely! Brows just change the look of your face and once you start doing it, you can’t stop πŸ™‚

  • Chloe

    I’m so glad you liked the soap and glory brow archery, this is potentially one of my favorite brow products from the drugstore so far! I definitely need to try the e.l.f studio eyebrow kit. Great review!

    Chloe http://mysecondattemptthistime.blogspot.co.uk/

    • Archery is one of my favourite, it is really good. elf eyebrow kit is one of the first eyebrow product I got and I still like it.

      • Chloe

        Nicee, I may have to try it soon then haha

  • I like gimme brow from Benefit, but it’s small and a bit expensive.

    • I heard a lot about it, I just haven’t given it a try yet πŸ™

  • yasmin sanchez

    I have never makeup eyebrows and I must confess that I love the result when I see other women, I do not dare because I think I look anything like a clown .. lol

    A hug.

    • I felt the same way when I started doing my brows at first then after a practice now I am doing way better πŸ™‚

  • Celina

    Oh dear. Brows – always an issue for me. But somehow i always feel i have no talent at all for handling them, hehe. Thanks for some good advice πŸ™‚

    CΓ©lina from elvestidonegro.de

    • I can’t seem to grow my brows naturally so all I can do is add an extra effort with these products πŸ™‚ I like the end result, it just needs a little bit of practice πŸ™‚
