It's time for another month of Beauty On A Budget with my beautiful friend Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick & Stilettos and this month is all about brows.
I'll admit, I didn't start paying attention to my brows until maybe 3 years ago. I didn't fill them in, rarely waxed them, and didn't do much routine maintenance. Now I've learned that your brows can make a statement and use something daily.
A few years ago I went to the Benefit Brow Bar at Ulta for the first time and fell in love with the Gimmie Brow product they used on me and had been using it for the past few years. I love it, but the price tag isn't so appealing and recently when I ran out I was on the hunt for something just as great that was more budget friendly.
Maybelline Brow Drama Shaping Mascara to the rescue! I love that it has a brush very similar to the Benefit kind. There is a larger ball shape on the end of the wand that Benefit does not have, and I found this great for blending the product in to the brows. There is a handful of shades, including a transparent one if you are looking for something to help keep your brows in check all day.
I found that a good amount of color comes out on the wand when you pull it out of the tube so I scrape some of the excess on the tube before applying it to my brows. I start on the inner part of my brow which is the largest and takes up some of the color from the wand, and brush it outward. Before dipping the wand in again, I go over my brows once more to get the color in place and fill in where I need to.
I was spending $24 on the Benefit Gimmie Brow, and now found a great similar product for only $7 which can't be beat. I purchased the shade Dark Brown and it is perfect for my hair color. I highly recommend this stuff if you're looking for a product to give your brows volume, depth and color.
