I love doing my makeup in the mornings, but I just find that doing my brows is a bit of a chore, y’know? I don’t know why, there’s just something about it that makes it less enjoyable than the rest of my face. So, anything that makes doing them as quick and easy as possible, I am all for.
I went through a phase of using pomades, and waxes, but I just found them too much of a faff and I always think they have a tendency to make brows look a bit harsh and angry looking. I prefer softer, more natural looking brows.
I’ve watched Fleur’s videos and read her blog for years now, and have always loved how she does her makeup, especially her brows. When I saw that she’d released a whole range of brow products with Eylure, I was super excited to give them a go. When I went into my local boots to pick them up, the products were on a 3 for 2 offer – even better! I picked up the Brow Palette, the Brow Define pencil and the double-ended Brow Tamer brow gel. I got all of these in the shade Medium, and even though I am blonde and prefer a softer looking brow, I do tend to have them a few shades darker than my hair – I just think it looks a bit better.
All of these products are incredible, and they are honestly all I use on my brows now. The Brow Define pencil is amazing at creating hair-like strokes, perfect for natural, yet fuller looking brows. It is double ended too, which to me, is just amazing. It allows you to fill your brows in with a slightly lighter shade at the beginning of your brow, and then gradually make them darker with the slightly darker shade at the other end and this creates a gorgeous gradient effect on your brows.
The Brow Palette includes 2 brow powders, a lighter shade and a darker one, and then a matte highlight too. I like to use the lighter shade in the palette to create fine lines at the start of my brows and then the darker shade to give them a bit more shape and definition. The powders are a really nice formula as they aren’t too pigmented, so you don’t end up with really harsh looking lines, but they are pigmented enough so that they do the job properly. The matte highlight is really nice too, I wasn’t crazy about this when I first saw it, but it highlights the brow bone in a really soft and subtle way, and gives that extra bit of shape. It also acts as a really lovely inner corner highlight on no-makeup, makeup days.
Now. I was extremely loyal to my L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumping Gel, however since using the Brow Tamer from Fleur’s Eylure range, I haven’t touched it. The clear end of this brow gel is insanely good, it gives brows a really nice shape and does make them look a lot thicker and fuller. I tend to use this when I’ve just had my eyebrows tinted, or when I’m wearing very minimal makeup. I absolutely love the coloured brow gel! The brush is small enough to grab every hair, and it doesn’t go crispy or smudgy like some others do. It keeps my brows in place all day, and they do not budge!
I can’t recommend this range enough. You may not be as interested if you do prefer a much thicker looking brow, but even so, you can build the products up.
I am so, so impressed with the quality of these products and the packaging is super pretty too! I can’t to see what other products Fleur decides to release!
