I love a well-groomed eyebrow and have been a little bit obsessed with my bows for a long as I can remember! From very thin brows that were fashionable a few years ago, to a full on brow today, they’ve been through quite a few changes!
There are many different brow products that I use – pencils when I’m in a hurry, powder when I have a bit more time and want a soft look, and gels when I have an event or a full day out and don’t want them to budge!
However, I’ve recently started trying out brow brushes, which brings me to the E.l.f Eyebrow Treat & Tame product I’ve been trying out lately.
Packaging: A doubled-ended stick with one side having something similar to a lip brush to applying the transparent gel to ‘treat’ the brow and on the other end, a mascara brush with tinted product to ‘tame’ the brow.
Shade: As my eyebrows are so fair, I got the lightest shade available in Ash, which I feel works perfectly for blonde to light brown brows.
Texture: The ‘treat’ side contains a see-through gel that’s quite thick however feels quite light when applied on the brows and the ‘tame’ side contains a formula similar to that of mascara however a bit lighter in feel.
Application: The clear gel to ‘treat’ goes on first. Then, once dry, the ‘tame’ side goes on. These both help to nourish and strengthen the brow as well as thicken it up and give it a deeper or more intense colour.
Cost: As with all E.l.f products, this was well priced at just £3.95.
Verdict: I quite like this, however I much prefer other forms of brow products. This is good if you just want to quickly darken up your eyebrows or else to just treat them (some people claim this has made their brows grow faster – personally I have not noticed a difference but never applied in daily to see such results if at all possible.)
I find this convenient if I’m not really applying any make up and just want to do something quick to my brows whilst still keeping them looking as close to their natural state as possible.
Overall, a good product but just not my favourite kind for my particular eyebrows – I prefer a fuller and more precise look.
What’s your favourite type of brow product? Something like this, pencils, powders or gels?
