It's been awhile since my last beauty post. I still have a great love for products but my routine has stayed pretty simple and constant lately. The one product I recently found and have already hooked many of my girlfriends on is Nars Eyebrow Gel. Besides getting my eyebrows waxed and weekly tweezing maintenance I never paid much attention to my brows. A few years ago I bought a brow pencil that I didn't love but used it occasionally never really noticing a difference. About two months I was chatting with one of the girls at Blue Mercury about eyebrows and how they really shape a person's face and create definition. She mentioned I should try the Nars product and it is really great! It goes on so easy with a mascara like wand and it stays on all day. It comes in 4 colors (I used Athens), fills in brows and gives them more shape by using the wand to lift up your brows as you brush in the gel and then gently brush them towards their natural shape. And you probably all know this but Tweezerman makes the best tweezers. The combination of the two is perfect for shapely eyebrows and a more contoured face:-)
I have been true to two eyeliners since college, one being a MAC eye pencil and the other being Bobbi Brown's long-wear gel eyeliner (in a pot). Both are great but the pencil was only really good for under the eye and the gel was only good for above the eye. I have now found one that does both fantastically!
Bobbi Brown's newest addition to her eyeliner collection, a version of the gel eyeliner in a pencil form! It goes on smooth but has a fine tip point for intense definition. What I love so much is that you can blend it easily for a soft, smudgy look or keep it fine for a lovely cat eye. It comes in 6 different colors and it truly lasts all day and into the night!
I purchased it in jet, but black navy, mahogany and smoke are all on my list:-)
