Keeping your brows on fleek is not an easy task, especially if you haven't quite decided if you want to microblade them. From shaping them to filling them in, we tested the best brow products to help you keep your brow game strong.
1. Best for outlining your brows: Chantecaille - Waterproof Brow Definer in Light Taupe
What it does: This waterproof dual-ended brow definer has a grooming brush on one end and a triangular tip on the other.
What we think: After lining and filling out the brows with the precise application of the angled tip, we smoothed out our brows with the grooming and couldn't stop combing through them—the brush is unbelievably soft. Easy to apply and outline, this definer is great if you're looking for an easy and quick application.
2. Best for filling in: Benefit - Foolproof Brow Powder in 3
What it does: The brow powder has a 12-hour formula that lets the powder sit on the hair and skin, creating brows that last all day. The light and darker shades provide a natural gradient for a natural full-looking set of brows.
What we think: If your brows are already perfectly shaped and don't need much retouching, then this brow powder is perfect. We used an angled brush instead of the blending sponge that came with the package for easy application. The powder was easy to pick up and extremely pigmented, perfect if for that "no-make-up" look.
3. Best volumizing brow mascara: Dior - Diorshow bold brow - Medium
What it does: The mousse-serum brow mascara is enriched with microfibers that helps create a volumized look for the brows. With a mix of vitamins including vitamin E, B5 and B8, this mascara adheres to the skin and nourishes it at the same time.
What we think: We're a sucker for brow mascaras because it helps keep our brows in place, and this mascara not only did that but it also gave an illusion of thicker looking brows. Even though it's tinted, we didn't use this by itself. We applied this as a way to better secure already filled in brows to give our look a bit more oomph.
4. Best for a full brow: Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Brow Gel in Grey
What it does: The brow gel comes in a wax formula that lets brow hairs stay in place while providing a sturdy look.
What we think: We're personally a big fan of layering eyebrow products, but we found this gel to be enough. Using an angled brush, the gel-wax formula allowed us to easily pick up the colour, shape our eyebrows and fill them out at the same time. The gel factor also lets hairs stay in place for the whole day.
5. Best tinted brow gel: Tom Ford - Fiber Brow Gel - Taupe
What it does: The fiber-filled brow gel helps fill in sparse brows to create a full set of natural looking brows.
What we think: This brow gel comes in a mascara form, which we loved because of its easy application. One swipe and the colour tinted our eyebrow hairs and kept them in place. It does go on quite thick, so be careful not to apply too much at once. Otherwise, this is the perfect product on lazy days.
