Keep Brow Hairs in Line for HOURS!

Picture-from-reddit-dot-com
One of the traits I inherited from my dear father is his crazy long brow hairs. I’ve been tempted in the past to just let them be to see how long they would get. I can’t even imagine if they got as long as the ones in this picture I found on reddit.com but how odd would I look?

So keeping the hair trim and in place it a top priority and I’ve tried just about every kind of “brow keeper-er” there is out there. The rash of brow pomades was promising! I mean, color and a kind of wax in one? I’ve reviewed several of them and the latest one to the list of faves is NYX Eyebrow Gel ($7 @ nyxcosmetics.com). It comes in 5 different shades (shown here in Chocolate, a brown with a dash of red) and seems to be the best at not only keeping brow hairs in place but for the longest time than the others I’ve tried.

5 Favorite New Beauty Releases

5-Favorite-New-Beauty-Products
1.
PIXI BEAUTY Full Coverage Foundation Brush ($15 @ pixibeauty.com) – such a compact head but don’t let the lack of length fool you. It still does a great job at getting your liquid products into those corners and contours.

2. OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Crème Colour Concentrate in Discipline ($23 @ occmakeup.com and nordstrom.com) – described as a bruised-bronze, this multi-tasking creamy color can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks (note that not all 17 shades can be used in the eye area).

3. L’OREAL Infallible Powder Eyeliner Pen in Purple Smoke ($9.99 @ drugstore.com and drugstores nationwide) – if the packaging says ‘Infallible’ on it, I’m in! Seriously though, their Infallible line is flawless. And these fat liners are great for applying a smoking eye in seconds.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS the POREfessional: License to Blot ($20 @ benefitcosmetics.com) – this is the latest addition to the POREfessional collection and will be great for the upcoming season. It’s an instant blotting stick with tiny invisible spheres that will mattifying any oil your face puts forth. 

5. BEAUTY 360 Shape-Defining Nail File ($4.99 @ cvs.com and CVS stores nationwide) – this is my new favorite file! I’ve noticed that sometimes a file has to be “broken in” so it’s not too harsh on the nails. This one arrived perfect and ready to use.
