£2.50 Brow Gel from Essence 

 I’m a little late to the party re. the importance of eyebrows to a makeup look. It’s only in the last year that I’ve started using an eyebrow pencil to fill in my brows and a subtle highlight below the brow every single time I apply makeup; it has become a beauty essential to me!

 

I usually use an eyebrow pencil for everyday brows and sometimes add a little powder if I get the urge. During a recent venture to Wilko to grab some Essence products, I spotted an eyebrow gel mascara and decided to give it a go. It only cost £2.50 so it wasn’t an expensive experiment.

  

I’ve used ‘make me brow’ a few times and I really like it. It’s quick & easy to use and while the colour appears stark at first, when brushed through with a spoolie brush, it evened out nicely. The very end of the wand can pick up a bit too much product (as many traditional mascaras do), but as long as you remember to glance at it before applying to brows, it’s not a problem. 

  

Below is a photo of how my brows looked the first time I used ‘make me brow’. Once I’d used the product and brushed it through a little, I added a tiny amount of the medium brown powder from the above MUA palette with a slanted brush. This step wasn’t strictly necessary but I felt that it softened the overall colour of the brows a little. 

  

{Not a very clear photo I know, but my selfie taking opportunities have been very much limited by my health, or lack there of, lately}

 My brows never quite look even these days, thanks to the 32 injections of Botox I get in the scalp, temples, forehead for my Chronic Daily Migraine 😁. However, my brows stayed neat and tidy all day, probably helped a little by the NYX Matte Fixing Spray I use to set whenever I apply makeup.
I’m glad I tried this product and I’ll certainly keep using it. I think finding your preferred methods for using makeup on brows takes time and there’s a lot of personal taste involved. I like having powders, pencils and gel mascara to hand so I can experiment and also alter my routine to fit the amount of time & energy I have on any given day. This product can easily be used alone with a spoolie brush to comb it through. I’d recommend making sure that there isn’t too much product on the wand before applying; it’s easier to add more than remove excess once it’s been applied.

Do you use brow gel mascara? Do you prefer powder or pencils?

Wishing you good luck and happy days,
