Whilst it might appear that Hollywood is full off well-browed people, the owners of natural eyebrows in Exeter shouldn’t be fooled by Instagram’s re-telling of the story. Great eyebrows require work. If you don’t want to go all out with a-list treatment on your eyebrows in Exeter, however, there are some great products on the market to improve the look of your brows. Here are some of our top picks.
Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil and Gel
What is it? A blendable colour pencil and a tinted gel to set the shape.
Does it work? Reviewers sing the praises of the gel: it lasts the whole day, keeping stray hairs in place AND adding volume, whilst not being too heavy or gloopy. It’s an affordable treat for anyone who cares about their eyebrows in Exeter. The colour of the pencil is not highly pigmented so a nogo for those who want really defined brows, but excellent for those who want a more natural look. With only three colours available, it’s best to try in store before you buy.
Affordability? It’s £6.99 so really affordable for most!
NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil
What is it? A pencil designed for drawing on individual hairs, creating the illusion of fuller brows.
Does it work? This is a super-natural looking pencil because the tip is so fine. It is even able to coat individual existing hairs to give them a tint, which is ideal for a feathery daytime look. Avoid if you prefer a heavier brow as it does not define edges strongly. With eight shades, there is one for every brow colour, and the cool undertones avoid the trap of unwanted reddish pigments.
Affordability? At around £8, this is another bargain. Be aware that it doesn’t contain a lot of product though; some have reported that it can run out after as little as 3 months.
Benefit Gimme Brow
What is it? An eyebrow thickening gel containing tiny microfibres to set hairs, fill in and add volume.
Does it work? This gel promises to solve all major eyebrow problems, and does a pretty good job of it! The special tip is useful for precision shaping and the mascara wand-like applicator is small enough to target individual hairs and make you feel in control. Despite there being only three shades, it is designed to suit multiple different brow colours, and is effective at matching. It’s great for thick or thin brows.
Affordability? It’s £20 so an investment, but you’ll be sure to have some of the best eyebrows in Exeter!
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo
What is it? Two complimentary shades of eyebrow powder, which add a whole heap of volume. Does it work? This product gradually builds up colour with the two shades, creating a 3D appearance. The colours are cool and can be used with a good quality brush to create convincing arches whether they’re natural or not. There’s a lot of product, which can last up to a year. It is weightless and natural-looking, but may not be as pigmented as others. Depending on what you’re looking for, that can be a pro or a con.
Affordability? Given that the £17 price tag doesn’t include an applicator or brush, this is quite steep but it will last longer than most products, giving you super volume every day.
Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit
What is it? An all in one kit with a powder and wax to fill out, plump up and set brows. Comes with brushes and tweezers. Does it work? This covers all areas for those seeking products for their eyebrows in Exeter and will give you a natural brow with a smoky finish. Once again, it doesn’t define brows to maximum strength, but is workable for an everyday look. There may be some red undertones if you have really dark natural eyebrows, but you won’t need to buy anything else for perfect brows.
Affordability? At £26.50 it is the most expensive of the lot, but well worth it if you’re looking for an all in one.
With six shades available, there’s one of everyone. If you’re looking for a professional to repair, treat or simply maximise your eyebrows in Exeter, get in touch with us today!
