For Your Brows

For Your Brows

After our big brow discussion, I wanted to share with you my brow product of choice…

I don’t have super thin brows but they also aren’t Bambi Northwood Blythe brows either (girl has got some serious brows). I get them waxed twice a year (when I go home to Minnesota and see Angela, my eyebrow fairy godmother) and do some minor plucking when needed. My brow game completely changed when I started stealing my mom’s Brow Zings a few years ago. The little kit includes a brow wax and powder (I use the wax to tame them and the powder to fill in) and a super tiny tweezers, which is totally genius. I like that it keeps my brows looking natural, full and a bit more defined.

If you are searching for a brow solution, this has my (and my mom’s) stamp of approval!

    Benefit is awesome…but if you aren’t a brunette it can be dark. I found this drugstore brand called Milani that makes a similar product great for redheads like me. They have one for blondies too! Their brow pencils aren’t bad either!

    I just love BENEFIT ! J4ai découvert la crème à dompter dans un autre coffret de la marque et j’avoue que j’adore…

    I use brow zings, and it’s a fairly good product. My only gripe is that their darkest shade isn’t dark enough for me. :(

    Alex, juste un petit mot pour te dire que j’apprécie beaucoup tes contributions au blog. J’aime beaucoup ton style, tes idées et ton humour. Et je trouve toujours tes articles super bien ficelés et intéressants.
    Petite question: écris-tu en français? Tu dis être originaire du Minnesota, c’est pour ça que je demande. Super style en tout cas, très soigné.

    Cool ce petit coffret, il semble parfait!

    Thank you so much! I am going to try it out soon. I love dark brows. My older sister, who looks a but like me, has amazing natural brows. Now I can make up for my genetic loss.

    Awesome tip, I’m still on the search ;) xx

    Thanks for the tip, need to look for it. It’s a good idea for the handbag I think I will use it for that :-)

    Thank you for the tip! Surprisingly they sell them in my country too (the Netherlands), which is often not the case when I find beauty supply tips on international blogs :)
    I’ve been looking for an alternative to an eyebrowpencil, which I sometimes feel makes my brows too artificial, even if I brush it out well.

    My mom and I both use this product as well and I LOVELOVELOVE it! And, crazy enough it stays on through EVERYTHING (running, swimming, etc.). The way the guy at Sephora sold it to me was, “When you’re at a club, do you want to hug your friends and leave your eyebrows on their shirt? If yes, go ahead buy a pencil. Otherwise, use this!”

    Do you prefer wax instead of gel? I’m wondering which hold the hair in place better.

  • ASH TG May, 9 2013, 6:44 / Reply

    Interesting, I am curious to try this! Another good product which I swear by for eyebrows is the Chanel brow kit, which has 3 different shades so you can create a really nice natural brow. It’s wax based so it stays on all day!

  • Brigadeiro May, 9 2013, 7:15 / Reply

    Ah! That’s the one I use! Have had the same one for 6 years! They sure last, even though I use it almost every day!

    Seems like a great brow kit. I’m currently using just the Dior pencil, but I’d like to try something different, so I’ll look for this one :)!
    Have a great weekend :).

    Oh! That’s great advice. I have never used anything for the brows.
    It would be great to see a video! Sort of before and after (or just pictures)?

    Bref, si vous êtes en quête d’une solution pour vos sourcils, ne cherchez plus, ce kit a été testé et approuvé (merci, maman) !!! c’est vrai!!

  • Colette May, 10 2013, 9:12 / Reply

    D’après mon esthéticienne, il ne faut JAMAIS épiler ses sourcils à la cire, car sinon plus tard on a des rides à la verticale ! La peau est trop souple pour les épiler à la cire à cet endroit.

    It seems like more and more people are talking about brow wax but does it hold or color? Or both?

  • Annika Tibs May, 11 2013, 10:09 / Reply

    oooooh yes i love this brow kit, i just discovered it a couple months ago & now its my brow staple :)

  • Kate May, 11 2013, 12:03 / Reply

    So, I’ve always been complimented on my great eyebrow shape, arch, etc, and I was always so confident tweezing them like a pro!

    But then something happened. I lost my brow mojo and they look like they’ve been put in a blender and stuck back on my face, and I just can’t get it together! I’m terrified of going to an esthetician and coming out with a weird shape, or pencil thin brows, especially in Atlanta where I live. I’m making a trip to NYC soon, can anyone PUHLEASE recommend a brow guru for me? xoxo

    Shobha is where I go for my brows. They corrected a crooked brow I had been maintaining my ENTIRE adult life and it changed my whole face. Love them.

  • Maria May, 11 2013, 7:15 / Reply

    I use the Anastasia Brow kit. It has two shades, wax, and a white shadow to use under the brow. Works for me!

    Do you mind me asking where you get your brows done in MN? Asking because I too am a Minnesota girl in a New York world and would love to know!

  • Pilis's Style May, 14 2013, 8:36 / Reply

    I am using Bobbi Brown’s pencil except it is not a pencil,but powder in form of pencil. I know,confusing… nevertheless, it is much better than regular pencil because it doesn’t leave those terrible lines..

    Où peut-on acheter ce petit coffret en belgique?? :-)
