My brows are still a work in progress. They’re not as full as they used to be, so they definitely need more help. I just talked with my friend, Laura, yesterday about who her daughters go to for brow shaping. I think I’ll have my brows shaped professionally for the first time – can you believe it? – and then I’ll be able to keep them up better after I have something to go by.
I have bangs so you can’t always see my brows. Plus I get my brows colored when I have my hair colored, so I don’t feel the need to do my brows everyday. But brows are definitely a thing, and they have been for a few years now. When I do my brows, my makeup looks more finished and I think my eyes stand out more. So lately I’ve been trying to do my brows more often.
Last spring, Mirabella Beauty sent me their Borrowed From The Boys Brow Collection to review, but at the time, they didn’t have a redhead shade among the lovely pencils they sent. I as well as many others asked them to introduce an auburn shade, and they did! I just received mine to try out a few days ago. The Mirabella Brow Pencil is a slim twist up pencil with a fine point for precision and a handy spoolie on the other end. The color is soft and easy to use – I just need more practice in drawing the lines to help create my ideal brow shape! The new Auburn shade is a good match for me. Yay!
Mirabella also sent me their new Quick Brow, a loose brow powder in Light/Medium that’s applied from a bottle with a small rounded-tip applicator. Easy peasy to apply on the wider parts of my brows. It’s especially good for filling in the sparse areas. And it’s very natural looking. You can also build it up for a bolder brow look.
Here are swatches of the two, Quick Brow, Light/Medium and Brow Pencil, Auburn:
I don’t have the patience to spend a lot of time on my brows, and I love how quick these two are to use. I’m pleased with my brows using the new Mirabella Quick Brow and Auburn Brow Pencil! I think my brows look natural and soft, good for everyday.
