Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Bows, as well as comparison swatches with the other brow pencils and gels in my stash. [info in italics taken form Petit Vour]

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

Perfect brows are an easy breeze with this ultra-fine natural brow pencil. Create any shape you wish with this easy to use defining pencil that mimics the look of natural hair. Transform fussy or shapeless brows with tamed precision by filling in sparse hairs and outlining the size and shape with perfect symmetry.

This brow pencil is available in four different shades: blond (light ashy brown), auburn (rich brown with a red tint), brunette (medium brown with warm undertones) and dark (dark brown with cool undertones). I received the brunette shade.

The pencil is soft and easy to apply, and wears well. However, the brunette shade seems really red toned on me compared with my usual brow pencils.

As you can see in the comparison shots – from top to bottom: Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brow in Brunette, Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow in Medium Brown, Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil in Dark Brown, and Eye of Horus Brow Define in Dynasty

I think that the dark shade would have been a better match for me. I will use the Beach Babe Natural Brow pencil, but more than likely I will use it in conjunction with my darker toned pencils.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Full Brow Serum from Province Apothecary. I received it in a Petit Vour box back in December 2017. It sat unopened in my stash for ages. Now that I’ve finally gotten around to using it, I figured that I would finally review. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum 1

The Full Brow serum is specifically blended with powerful and active pure botanical extracts and anti-oxidants to help fortify hair and encourage fuller-looking brows. The nutritive blend of Organic Castor Seed Oil and Coffee Extract targets hair follicles, while Organic Rosemary Leaf has been used for centuries to improve hair luster and promote the appearance of richer brows. Use twice daily to achieve stronger, healthy looking eyebrows.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum

I’ve been using the Full Brow Serum for about 3 months, using it once a day instead of twice daily as I find that it doesn’t play nicely with my eyebrow pencil or brow gel. I manage to use it at least five nights a week, and sometimes every night of the week.

Consistency is key with a brow serum.

My brows are starting to come in a little thicker / fuller, but they are still much lighter in colour than my hair, so I still feel the need to use a brow pencil or gel to darken them up.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Castor Seed Oil*, Argan Kernel Oil*, Jojoba Seed Oil* [infused with Coffee*, Burdock Root*, Calendula flower*, Horsetail*], Broccoli Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract + Oil*, Lavender*, Geranium Oil*, Bay Oil.  | *Certified Organic Ingredients.

SureThik Eyebrow Thickening Fibers Kit Review

Hello, hello!

As you all have probably heard me complain about my thin little brows, you will know that when SureThik reached out to me about testing out their Eyebrow Thickening Fibers, I was definitely interested!

 

WHAT IT IS: SureThik Eyebrow Thickening Fibers are a semi permanent eyebrow makeup, made from 100% Natural Keratin Fibers and 100% Natural Bees wax that bind to make even the thinnest eyebrows look naturally thick. Forget about messy gels and harsh looking pencils, our Eyebrow Fibers are long lasting and will give your brows effortless looking fullness. More natural and longer lasting than traditional eyebrow fillers or eyebrow powders and one of the only eyebrow thickeners that is water resistant.

WHAT IT DOES: BUILD – DEFINE – THICKEN –  The Defining Bees Wax shapes and sets the brow while the 100% Natural Thickening Fibers add instant density, filling in any patchy or over plucked areas.

I was sent the Eyebrow Thickening Fiber kit in the shade Dark Brown, but I was also sent the Brow Fibres in both Medium and Light Brown – all three work for me, it all depends on how dark I want my brows to look on any given day. The kit contains a jar of Defining Wax, a jar of Thickening Fibers (in one of four shades), a Dual Ended Applicator Brush. The kit itself also has a nice mirror in the lid.

There is a slight learning curve to apply the Eyebrow Thickening Fibres, but with a steady hand and a little patience, it becomes easier and less messy to apply with practise. Here is the application instructions:

Step 1: Slide the angled end of the Applicator Brush over the Defining Wax. Evenly apply wax to the brow shaping as you go. Step 2: Dip the rounded end of the Applicator Brush into the Thickening Fibers. Gently dab onto your brows filling in sparse areas. Repeat Fiber application until desired fullness. Applicator Brush can be cleaned with warm water and shampoo. Rinse thoroughly and lay flat to dry.

Key to applying the Fibers is to dab or pat them on, and not to “paint” them on as this will leave you with streaky / clumpy brows – which is what happened to me with my first application attempt!

I think that if you are skilled at using brush on brow powders or pomades, then this will be easy for you to use. If you are more used to using pencils, like me, it might take a little while to get the hang of application. As with any makeup application technique, with practise, you will improve!

As you can see in the photo below, the brow on the left is without the Eyebrow Thickening Powder and the one of the right is with the powder. [Sorry that the photo is weirdly cropped, my eyes have dreadful puffiness / circles as I’m still recovering from my cold. I will re-do this photo once I’m less sick looking!]
