I haven’t tried many NYX products, so as mentioned in my Essence Mascara Review, I had a mini haul so I could try some new things out and tell you lovelies how they worked. I tried 3 different products, a gel, a mascara, and a pencil. Continue reading to find out what I thought and if they’re worth buying.
EBG03 – Brunette
This NYX eyebrow makeup formula is everything the bottle states, waterproof, long-lasting, and smudge proof. Unfortunately, I found it to be darker than the Tinted Brow Mascara brunette shade, and it’s way too dark for me 🙁 Besides the colour matching issue, I really liked this product. You’re able to get a nice even, precise look that lasts all day long. I recommend this product for full faced makeup looks, but be careful of the shade. If you’re in between colours opt for the lighter shade.
TINTED BROW MASCARA
TBM03 – Brunette
This brow mascara has become my go to if I’m in a rush. It’s quick and easy by applying colour while brushing my brows in place. It works good for filling in sparse areas at the thicker part of my brow, but it isn’t very precise for filling in the ends. I also found that the ends of my eyebrows would wear off towards the end of the day. Like I said, it’s great if you’re in a rush, but it’s not my favourite for an everyday look and I think I’ll continue to explore different brow mascaras.
MICRO BROW PENCIL
MBP01 – Taupe
Eyebrow pencils are my favourite type of eyebrow makeup and I’m only kind of pleased with this pencil. It’s a double-ended pencil with a spooly on the back which is very convenient and great for carrying in your purse for touch ups. The pencil is very slim with a very natural looking thin line which I find to be too time-consuming to make me want to purchase it again. The product itself applies well and lasts a long time when everything is set in place with some clear Essence or Brow Gal brow gel.
It was nice to try out the different NYX eyebrow makeup products, but I’m not overly impressed with any of them. I’m going to continue to try different brands of the gel and mascara. I may end up going back to the brow gel, but I’m confident I’ll find a longer lasting brow mascara, and I know I’m going to go back to IT Cosmetics’ Goof Proof Brow Pencil. It’s long lasting and can do thick and thin lines – bonus, it’s cruelty free! I’d love to hear about your fave eyebrow products, please let me know in the comments below.
