What’s Your Most Disappointing Product of 2015? #BuryMeMondays

What's Your Most Disappointing Product of 2015

Happy New Year!!! I hope you made it through the holidays and that the first few days of 2016 are treating you well. Today’s question is about your most disppointing product of 2015.

What beauty product fell short? Was it overhyped?  Was it a technological advancement that really wasn’t all that advanced? Was it something that wasn’t terrible, but just wasn’t right for you? Continue reading What’s Your Most Disappointing Product of 2015? #BuryMeMondays

For The Brows: @maybelline Brow Define + Fill by Eyestudio

Over time I’ve learned that filling in my brows gives my face a more finished look when it comes to wearing makeup. Whether I’m doing a full face or just some mascara and liner a filled in brow goes a long way. Since I like to fill in my brows I decided to take a break from my usual powder and give a more budget friendly product a shot.

Maybelline Define and Fill Duo Pencil

The Maybelline Define and Fill Duo is a pencil and powder in one product. You use the pencil side to define your brows and the powder side fill them in. The pencil side reminded me of more expensive products like Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz because of the retractable pencil.

There’s my sad, sparse eyebrow and there’s my happy, filled in eyebrow. Yay!

I found that this gave a relatively natural looking fill. I haphazardly made a few hair-like marks on my brows then filled in with the powder side.

The powder side is a bit tricky. I’m pretty sure the powder is in the lid so you’re supposed to unscrew the lid and the powder will deposit itself onto the little sponge tip and you apply it to your brows. You can also unscrew the lid completely, insert the pencil into the lid and spin the pencil back and forth so the powder gets on the sponge from the friction.

This stayed put most of the day and through a couple of accidental touches.

How Do You Maintain Your Brows? #BuryMeMondays

004a

Do you have a standing brow appointment at a salon? Do you groom them yourself? Whether it’s threading, waxing, plucking, or shaving we’re taking care of our brows. After a brief stint of going to the salon I went back plucking my brows myself. It works for me but let me know what works for you when it comes to your brows.

For Your Consideration: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

Anastasia Beverly Hills is THE name in brow grooming so when the Dipbrow came out I knew I had to have it. I went through a process of trying to guess which color was for me along with a Sephora cast member. At that time 5 shades(there’s 8 now) were available so my choices were between Dark Brown and Ebony. I landed on dark brown because it was closer to the brow powder I was already using.
