My Makeup Collection Part 3 | Brow Products!


Welcome to part 3 of my Makeup Collection post's and today I'm going to be sharing one of the smaller collections of mine which is my Brow Products! 

If you haven't seen my first two posts of the series you can find them here.

MAC Fluidline Brow Gel Creme - Deep Dark Brunette:

The first brow product in my collection is the MAC Fluidline Brow Gel Creme and this is my favourite in my collection and probably my favourite one I’ve tried. I think this works so much better than powders because it doesn’t sit on the brow hairs and because it’s a creamy consistency, it looks a whole lot more natural on the brows when you’re drawing hair like strokes. I also really like that you can build this up to make the brows look bolder, which is perfect for more glam looks! Although this is pretty pricey, at £17.50, it lasts so long. I have had this since the beginning of July last year and 9 months later there still well over half the product left!!

Natural Collection Brow Tidy:

Next up I have the Natural Collection Brow Tidy and this has been my savior the past few months. As I haven’t had my brows done in quite a while my brows aren’t looking too good, but this sets each brow hair in place before doing my brows so this makes it easier for them to look more defined and in place. I did want to try the ABH one but as this was like 10% of the price (£1.99) I was much more drawn to this and it’s so helpful!!

Sleek Brow Kit:

This Sleek Brow Kit has been a major staple in my makeup collection since I was in High School. I used to really like it as it has both a powder and a wax so you're able to decide on the day weather you want more natural looking brows or more defined brows or you can use both of them together for even more bold brows. I use the Medium Brow Kit as the wax is quite dark, however the powder is more of a warm brown which I don't really like too much as you get reddish brows, but I mainly use the wax anyway. I think I like this wax a little bit more than the MAC Brow Gel Creme as it's a lot smoother and more wet (if that makes any sense) so it applies a whole lot easier and the product is really blend-able. I would really recommend this, especially if you're trying to start up a makeup collection. 

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil:

The next brow product that I have in my collection is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil which I have in Shade 4. Although this is one of the darkest shades (not the darkest) it doesn't come out really dark, especially if you apply it with a light hand, so it can still look fairly natural just more defined. However, if you do want more defined, bold, brows you can build the product up nicely. Also because the tip of the pencil is flat and think it works really well to get the shape right and to be more precise when applying the product. Although this is pretty pricey (£20.50) it does apply really well, it's waterproof, it says on and doesn't smudge and it lasts quite a while, so I would say that it's worth the money but I am sure that you can find something similar for much less. E.g. The Soap and Glory Brow Archery Pencil works really well and it's only £8. (link here)

Natural Collection Clear Mascara:

As you can tell by now, Natural Collection is probably one of my favourite drugstore brands, not just because it's so cheap but they're actually really good quality. I use this clear mascara as a brow gel, not for any particular reason other than that the clear brow gel was sold out once so picked up the mascara and I've never really gone back. The only downside is that the wand is a little bit big so can go onto the skin, but that is expected as it's a mascara wand and as it's clear it doesn't really make a difference to the skin.

Natural Collection Brow Gel - Dark Brown:

Now this Brow Gel does work pretty much the same as the Clear Mascara, also from Natural Collection, however it does work probably better as the wand is smaller, so fits on the brows perfectly without getting any of the gel on the skin ... which obviously works better for the brows than the clear mascara. Although I don't use this very often, because I think it makes the brows look cakey and almost like there's too much product on them, I do like the way it sets the brows in place all day/night and I usually only wear with more glam looks as it doesn't look ~SO~ bold then ... but again for £1.99 I can't really complain. 

Revolution Brow Palette:

The last item I have in my Brow Products collection is the Revolution Brow Palette, which I was unsure whether to save for my palette post, but I thought it would be better to add it into this one. I don't really use this palette as much as I should, but as it's so convenient I know it's going to be so convenient when I go on my holidays. This palette has 3 different wax's, 5 powders and 1 brow highlight powder all with lots of different shades from blonde-y colours to dark brown ... which makes this palette ~SO~ perfect for pretty much everyone! Also as their are different brow colours in the palette, you're able to easily use a couple of different colours in order to make almost ombre brows, so that the front of the brows can be lighter than the tail. As well as all of this, this can also be used as an eye  shadow palette and create a smokey eye with it ... it's just ~SO~ versatile and I'm sure you'll really like this. I'm not sure if they still sell this but I have found a similar one and have linked it below or here.
