I’m not one of the lucky ones blessed with full eyebrows, so I have to use eyebrow pencils, pomades and gel to get the brows I want. On my hunt for the best brow products, drugstore and high-end, I’ve come across a few favorites. Nyx Cosmetics in general is a favorite brand of mine. Not only are their products amazing and super affordable, but I find that most are either dupes or better versions of high-end products. I’ve used the Nyx Eyebrow Gel, Tame and Frame Pomade and the Micro Brow Pencil and this Tinted Brow Mascara is my favorite of their brow products (although the eyebrow gel comes in a close second and is an amazing dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade).
Nyx Tinted Brow Mascara Reviews:
I alternate throughout the year between my natural blonde hair and a darker brunette shade of hair (I get bored easily with my hair). I’ve used the Blonde shade for the past year but since I’ve had my hair darker these past few months, I switched over to the Chocolate shade recently. I’ve used the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel (liked it but I need a tint to help fill in my brows a bit better), the Benefit Tinted Brow Gel (meh) and the Tarte Amazonian Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel (hated this one) and I prefer the $7 Nyx version as opposed to the others that cost over $20.
My all time favorite brow product is the It Cosmetics Brow Power, I am in love with this! This helps me shape and fill in my brows but when it comes to setting my brows (to make sure they don’t fade throughout the day) I like to use a tinted brow gel to give any bit of extra help. I simply swipe whatever shade I’m using at the moment (which is Chocolate right now) over my brows and it makes them look a little bit more full, darkens them up a little bit more, makes my brows hairs stand out more to look more natural, and keeps my brows in place all day.
As you can see below, the blonde shade is a beautiful cool toned Taupe-ish looking shade that is perfect for when I have my natural blonde hair color, or when I have highlights. I have a hard time finding brow products that aren’t too warm so I love that this is on the cool side. When I have my hair darker or when I have ombre hair (with darker faded roots) I like to use a darker shade to match my hair. Once again, I prefer cool tones and I was worried that this brown shade would be warm because of the color of the tube, but the inside is a gorgeous light brown cool/neutral shade which was exactly what I was looking for. If you want a good brow product, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get good brows!
