My collection of eyebrow products, and my three favourites!

August 30, 2012

I love eyebrow products, if I had to leave home with only two items of makeup on, it would be my eyebrows and mascara. So the above photo is everything that I use for my eyebrows, which ranges from matte brown eyeshadows, to eyebrow pencils, waxes, gels etc.

In my collection I have:
  • Various matte brown shadows in my nude z-palette
  • The dark brown matte shade from the Sleek Storm palette
  • Benefit Brow Zings brow shaping kit - Light
  • Smashbox Brow Tech and Cream Eye Liner Palette - see full review here
  • Smashbox Cream Eye Liner - Java and Putty
  • Prestige Brow Perfection Clear Brow Gel
  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil - Brown
  • Calvin Klein Brow Definition Pencil - Brunette
  • NYX AUTO eyebrow pencil - Light Brown
  • Prestige Ultimate Brow Definer - Blondy
  • MUA Eyebrow Pencil - Blonde and in Brunette
Before I get into my three favourite brow products, I thought I would mention that my absolute worst product is the NYX AUTO pencil, I bought this online and thought it would be safe to order the light brown, but its orange! Its hideous and I can't imagine anyone liking this colour, I have never, and will never use this! I also hate the Calvin Klein one because the shade brunette comes out black, and it doesn't even have a brush so you can't really blend it out. Now to my favourite products...

#1 Smashbox Cream Eye Liner

These are my number one favourite brow products, and ironically, they aren't supposed to be brow products. I was given Java (the dark colour) as a present with a few other Smashbox products for my brithday in May. I hated it initially, but thats because I was trying to use it as a cream liner. It is a horrible cream liner and I wouldn't recommend this as a liner to my worst enemies. It's dry, it smudges, it is quite sheer, its hard to work with. Well I didn't want to throw it out so I tried it on my brows and it was awesome! It is almost like using a shadow, but it is slightly more moist so it stays better, and you only need a tiny amount of product. This reminds me of using a heavily coloured wax, but it is smoother and easier to use. 

Swatch of Java and Putty
I swatched Java and Putty quite heavily, but then I blended it out a little with an angle brush so you can see what the colour looks like when you apply it to the brows. Java is a pretty dark brown, and I am more inclined to use this at night when I am going out. I have also recently bought Putty on eBay for a more day to day look. Putty is a pretty warm taupe, and would work well for anyone who has light to medium coloured brows. I bought Putty for $14 off eBay including shipping, but I think if you buy these in store they cost about $30+ in Australia. Luckily because they are bad eyeliner products, you can get them cheap online.

#2 Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit

My boyfriend bought me this product for Christmas a while ago so I'm not sure how much it costs , but I think its around $50 here in Australia. This is in the light shade, and it gives a perfect natural looking brow. I don't use this as much as I should, mainly because it is a two step process where you use the wax and then the powder on the top. It doesn't sound hard, but when you are in a rush to get to work I tend to always reach for a one step brow product. I do always use this when I am spending more time on my makeup though, and I do think it gives the most natural perfect look. I love that this comes with a coloured wax, I think the effect is nicer when you use the wax as the colour and the power more to set it, compared to using a clear wax and trying to press coloured powder onto it to fill in the colour. I also like that I have been using this for about 18 months and I have heaps left, also this is perfect for makeup bags as it comes with two brushes, tweezers and a mirror.

#3 Prestige brow products

The main thing I love here is the pencil, it is just sooo easy to use. This is my brow product for when I am lazy or when I am running late for work. This is similar to the MUA blonde pencil which I also use, but this one came out on top because it has a twisty applicator which means I don't have to sharpen it, and with the MUA brow pencil I am sharpening it all the time. The colour is also a nice taupe and works well for just slightly filling in my natural brows. I decided to put the gel in here as well, it's not my favourite brow product but it is good to use in combination with the pencil. I did more a review on both of these products here. In Australia the pencil retails for $13.95 and the gel for $12.95.

  1. That's an impressive collection! Even though brows are an essential step in my daily routine (I over-plucked in high school and I'm left with pretty pitiful brows) I only have a few brow products in my stash. My all-time favourite is the Anastasia Brow Powder duo in Ash Blonde.


  2. Great post! That's a pretty extensive brow collection there! I really enjoy using the Vivo Ultimate Brow & Eye Kit and the e.l.f brow kit- they're both bargain buys.x
