Well-groomed eyebrows act to frame the face, define the look and enhance your facial features.The trend now is for thick, full, natural brows and as someone who has over-plucked Nineties brows, I am constantly trying new eyebrow pencils searching for the perfect formula and color.
My favorite for the moment is the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer. With drugstore makeup stepping up their game lately, it is completely possible to find a cheap option that works as good as a high end one!
I have been using the L’Oréal pencil for almost a year now and I find that the formula is very close to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz but less expensive! I use the color ‘Dark Brunette’ which is a dark brown with some greyish undertones. This shade works perfectly if you have black or dark brown hair.
The formula is not too waxy and not too creamy which makes it perfect to make some little strokes or to draw a defined line on the upper or lower line of the brows. The tip is also fine enough to get a precise application and the spoolie blends the product perfectly into the skin.
After filling my eyebrows with this pencil, I like to use the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel. Besides setting the brow into place, this gel has some fibers in it that helps adding more volume and thickness to the brows! You can even use it on its own if you have thick defined eyebrows or if you are in a rush and you need something quick to add some volume and definition.
So overall, I think that the L’Oréal Brow Stylist definer is a great affordable option and combined with the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel ,they give the brows the perfect definition and fullness ! If your eyebrows are over-plucked, or if you want to reinvent the shape of your arches, this acts as a cheap dupe for the Anastasia Beverly hills brow wiz.
