Brows… its my thing. By which I don’t mean in any way I’m good at brows, if anything it’s quite the opposite, but regardless I put a lot of effort into making them look as good as I possibly can.

Thanks to two completely different eyebrow shapes, (one is quite angled, and one is quite arched), along with one higher than the other, and then the newest addition of some really white hairs that make my brows look like they have bald patches, my brows take a long time to get right in the mornings. I’ve tried many products over the years with varying degrees of success, but they take so much time to perfect I’ve been considering having them tattooed, but it’s not cheap, so its something I’d have to save for, as well as consider carefully.

While I mull that over, I still have to spend a lot of time filling them in each day and I’m always looking for the next product. While placing a Makeup Revolution order recently I spied the Makeup Revolution Brow Dual Arch & Shape, and at the ridiculous bargain price of £3.50 I popped one in my virtual basket.

Makeup Revolution Brow Dual Ultra BrowAvailable in four shades, (Fair, Medium, Dark and Darkest), I opted for Dark as I like a dark brow, even though my hair is lighter these days.

At one end you’ve got a soft pencil, and at the other end a super-fine felt pen. Apologies for the out of focus shot.

Second impression was that the crayon end was a little too soft as first time I tried to use it, it snapped off, I suspect it must have been already damaged as I used very little pressure.

So essentially, that left me with the felt tip end. I’m not complaining, I have found my holy grail brow product. I’m actually now considering not having my brows tattooed at all, so impressed am I. Although in the swatch the shade looks a little wishy washy, this is a positive when applied to the brow. You can build up the depth of colour, and the tip is fine enough to even draw in hairs if that’s something you like to do. The finished look is impressive. Please take into consideration my lack of skill and totally uneven brows.

All day. When I wash my face at the end of the day, it looks exactly the same as it did when I applied it at 7.30am. No word of a lie. Oh, and one more thing, if there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s when brow products that claim to be brown, actually turn out to be incredibly red toned, its far too common, but it’s not the case with this. It’s a true brown.

There’s only so much I can say about a brow pencil, but I would recommend this to absolutely anyone, another incredible product from Makeup Revolution.

You can purchase yours here for a very reasonable £3.50.

    I *love* this product, it’s replaced Soap and Glory Archery as my HG eyebrow product. The products are pretty similar but the colour (I have the fairest in blonde) is just that bit cooler and matches my brows better. Also I haven’t had any trouble with the tip breaking (I have two) so hopefully yours is just a rogue one!
