Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Pen – Long-Wearing Eyebrow Tint

IMG_7226

It’s a shame the only good thing about this is the packaging…

So after being a huge ABH fan I saw a tutorial on Instagram that used this. It looked amazing! I’ve had this on my ‘Must Buy’ list and took advantage of the amazing deals Beauty Bay were having, and finally got this!

I’m so unbelievably disappointed by this product. The video, posted by ABH themselves, showed it off to be the ultimate felt tip pen style brow tint – delivering bold and highly pigmented strokes to create and style your brows. What did I end up with? A limp pen that left watery and dim lines that hardly defined anything…

I’m so devastated by this – it was £17, hardly cheap – and it leaves so much more to be desired. The one saving grace of this item, aside from the amazing packaging (what do you expect – its Anastasia Beverly Hills after all), is the fact I now use this for a “not so done” natural eyebrow look rather than filling it in as it does deliver a long lasting tint.

Bottom Line: Doesn’t deliver a defined stroke, but good for a more natural, slightly styled eyebrow look.

Price: £17 at BeautyBay.com.

Benefit Ready Set Brow & Goof Proof Brow Pencil

Well, eye brow make up has been revolutionised! 

Let me start by saying how cute the packaging is for both of these items – although all Benefit packaging aims to be pleasing to the eyes!

I was able to snag these two in my Love Me Beauty October box for 15 credits each (1/4 of my monthly allowance! Use my discount code; ROSEM3295520  for 60 free credits worth £21.)

I love how easy to use the eye brow pencil is due to the special design of it, the diamond-like shape means it has a lot more edges to allow you to define all aspects of your brow – and the wide flat surface allows for  filling in with ease! And I really mean ease! I’ve used Smashbox’s Brow Tech To Go and Sleek’s Brow Stylist, but found the thickness of these too hard to create clean lines to define my eyebrows. The multi-faceted pencil makes it so much easier – truly living up to the Goof Proof name!

The Ready, Set, Brow! is the perfect partner for the Goof Proof brow pencil, securing your artistic eyebrow sculpting for up to 24hrs. I used this during a 9.5hr shift and my eyebrows didn’t move at all – but still looked naturally in place and wasn’t hard/crunchy that some gels cause. The only down side is that it has a bit of a chemically smell which can be a bit off putting.

Bottom Line: Easy to use eye pencil which will be perfect for beginners, and a gel to hold your masterpiece in position!
