H&M Eyebrow Fix

You were always there for me when I needed you. Your steadfast support helped me during the most heated of times. Your cooling touch soothed my soul like no other. Even towards the end, you were never too stern or stiff with me, even though I was the very reason you became clouded with darkness. I never meant to hurt you… they were all only a momentary distraction in comparison to you. You were the one. It was always going to be you. My one regret, we hadn’t met sooner in life (like say highschool).  Goodbye, old friend. Goodbye, true friend. You are gone but as long as I live, never forgotten. Please, let us all have a moment of silence for H&M Eyebrow Fix. We lost a good one, folks. Rip H&M Eyebrow Fix.

MAC Stylish Brow Collection

I’ve previewed this collection here and reviewed the single item I’ve purchased from this collection here, but I’m going to review it again in this post.

Brunette Veluxe Brow Liner (muted mid-tone gray) I usually go for warm browns on my eyebrows so Brunette was quite a change for me. Surprisingly, I quite like it and what’s more, I can actually pull it off (perks of being a neutral, neither warm-toned, nor cool-toned). Combined with my dark hair, and dark eyes, and dark skin, this actually works! It comes off as darker when I’m pale, and lighter when I’m tan. As opposed to other brow products where you have rub the product back and forth a couple of times for the color to transfer, this is very pigmented with one swipe alone, which I attribute to this product’s creaminess. The only drawback is you have to sharpen this after every use, which is something I’ve noticed that happens specifically with emollient products; the constant sharpening because these things are so soft, they almost melt, making the application not as precise or defined. I fake an arch on my super straight, super thin eyebrows, which is why I need the application to be precise. It has to look realistic otherwise what’s the point? I also use this to fill in the empty patches in my brows. This does everything I want it to and in record time as well! Best of all, it comes with a built-in spoolie on the other end, for those who are OCD about their brows (like me!) so they can run the spoolie through their brows even when they’re out and about!

I feel like the self-sharpening Eye Brow Crayon in Lingering (soft taupe brown) is a close enough dupe for the Veluxe Brow Liner in Brunette (muted mid-tone gray) because they both seem like taupes to my eyes, with Brunette being warmer and a hint darker, of the two.

Now ladies (and gents) of Kuwait, I urge you, nay, beseech you to put down that black and opt for one of those two for your brows, instead. Very few people can pull off brows filled in with black. It’s too stark, and just does not look good. Either one of the two I just mentioned, can create a softer, more flattering, and believable look to your brows. You don’t have to go with any of my suggestions but please, please stop with the cray, over-drawn black brows!
