I like it, the new brow. Full and fluffy. Bold. Want them on my face. My eyebrows, however, are not on board. They refuse to grow back. Have waved the white flag after years of relentless plucking. So here we are – bushy in the front, nonexistent in the tail. Sperm brows.
The quest for better brows has led to several great products. The bargainous Makeup Obsession Brow Powder Duo, £2. The Benefit Gimme Brow Volumising Brow Gel, £20. But I’ve yet to find the one, the brow product I cannot be without.
I thought the new Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color, £16, was going to be it. And I do love it. These marker style brow pens are so quick and easy. Perfect for defining shape and filling in bald spots.
What I can’t do with it is draw on realistic looking brow hairs where there are none. It’s the colour selection you see. The Medium shade, while perfect in tone, is too light, lacks the required definition. The Dark shade, too deep. Even with the lightest hand it gets very dark very fast. The other shades are either too light or too warm.The other issue is that the pen dries out quickly. Had mine for two weeks and feel like it’s already on the way out. But long-wearing brow colour, oh yes. Easy to use, you betcha. A repurchase? Possibly not.
Til next time,
