Now, I usually don't care about my brows. I know, I know, they're important for the face, but I've really never given them any attention, and in truth haven't started defining them until this year. The main reason is because I've always had thick brows, so I never felt the need to. I've tried a few products, and I've been most impressed with my most recent purchase, Laura Mercier's Brow Definer in Soft ($20).
Soft is the medium color that Laura Mercier offers. I really like this brow formula because it's a tinted wax/gel, so I don't have to use a powder and gel seperately.
The color suits me well, and it's long lasting. I went the whole day with out fade.
Ok, I'm going to show you guys a picture of my brows. DON'T LAUGH. My brow hairs are SUPER long because I don't trim them. I know I should, but I just don't.
STOP LAUGHING AT MY UNDERGROOMED BROWS! I CAN HEAR YOU!Look how long they are... they droop under the arch. I will certainly be trimming my brows tomorrow after seeing my brows close up.
With Laura Mercier's Brow Definer
As you can see, I mostly just fill in the widest part near the bridge of my nose (are there names for parts of the brow?), which is where I really need it because it's somewhat sparse.
This is a really nice product, but if you're really ungifted in the hair department, stick with a pencil because this formula is really to coat what you have and keep them in place while giving color. Even though I have dark hair, I stick with lighter/medium brow shades, because you should always go lighter, as to avoid harsh lines. Darker colors would look fine with dark skin AND dark hair. I have medium skin so I can't use, say, a black brow product. I wouldn't want to look like I drew my brows on with a Sharpie.
Two thumbs up for Laura!
What do you guys use on your brows?
