Best Of: Brow Mascara

Benefit Cosmestics’ Gimme Brow and Glossier Boy Brow are the darlings of the makeup community on the interwebs. I have used and loved the both, but I have found something that is better and half the price!

I have pretty substantial brows but I look for a brow product that offers a strong hold, a darker tint, and the ability to fill in a few sparse holes. NYX Tinted Brow Mascara delivers on all fronts! On top of all those functional benefits, it is dirt cheap and lasts forever! Not only do you get more product (NYX – 0.22oz, Glossier-0.11oz, and Benefit-0.1oz), but by some stroke of magic, it doesn’t dry out until the 6-7 month mark. I am on to my third tube of this brow mascara, I keep trying other products and yet still come back to NYX. I’ll be honest, it’s not an exact dupe for Gimme Brow or Boy Brow because it doesn’t have fibers in it, but it is more pigmented than those two. Because it is so highly pigmented,  I use the very tip of the wand to draw on the brow and lay down a little extra product to sparse areas. For my brow needs, the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara is a one-and-done product! I do think that if you have very sparse brows, you might want to use a pencil in conjunction with this brow mascara.

Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder – Eye Foil – Review

Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder – Eye Foil – Blonde Gold

I’ve tried this a few different ways and I would recommend applying it with either your finger or a flat synthetic brush. I have found that it works best if you use the *smallest* amount – I barely touch the Eye Foil and then even tap the excess off on the back of my hand.

🌿extremely fine gold glitter in sheer base

🌿very little fallout throughout the day – With glitter glue, I had just the slightest amount fallout but even with no primer, it was pretty minimal.

🌿difficult to layer – it can get clumpy and textured

🌿doesn’t crease, lasts all day

🌿gel-like formula

🌿easy to remove

🌿liquid liner applies very easily on top of it
