Let me talk to you a little about Benefit Cosmetics’ Ka-Brow! In case you’re not familiar with it, it’s a cream-gel colored product, that comes in 6 shades, and as its name suggests, it’s for your brows. It’s a pomade that comes in this beautiful and very practical packaging, that includes a hard-angled brush to help shape and fill your eyebrows in the best way possible. It’s super easy to use, even for an amateur like me, and it gives a very nice effect, that can be build from natural-looking to more dramatic, depending on your personal taste and needs. Mine is shade 3-medium, which is a bit on the lighter side for me, but just barely, so I like it a lot. I probably could have gone with shade 4, so I may check that one out in the future. It’s very long-lasting, so you can wear it from day to night without having to re-apply it. I would definitely recommend you try it!
I bought Essence’s “make me brow” mascara 2 or 3 months ago, and I started trying it out immediately. At first I wasn’t very impressed with it, because it didn’t add anything special to my brows. My opinion hasn’t changed a lot since then, but I do use it every time I do my make up these past few months. I find that if used alone, it does nothing to my brows…the color is not at all visible. But if you use it combined with a brow pencil or brow shadow it helps make the brows look more natural, and “kept together”. I wouldn’t say it is a must product, but it does help a little, and it’s inexpensive. I have the darker color available, “02 browny brows” if anyone’s interested. I’m still undecided though on whether or not I’ll repurchase it when it’s finished. I’ll keep you posted.
