There’s no denying that big, bold eyebrows have become super lust-worthy and the must have look in the last couple of years. Gorgeous gals like Lily Collins and Cara Delevigne have led the charge in the bushy brow brigade (loving that alliteration!) and it seems the thin, over-plucked look is well and truly OUT!
Luckily enough for me I never went too OTT on the 90s overzealous plucking phase. I did have the “sperm brow” for a short time but thankfully they’ve grown back over the years! I’m also lucky in that my brows are quite dark (thank you European genes) and full, so finally I’m in fashion, HA!
I do pencil in my brows now and then, when I could be bothered, and have always wanted something that would not just colour them in, but also tame them and keep them in place as they do get a little unruly now and then. I saw the ad for Maybelline’s Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara ($12.95 from Priceline) and I thought this might be the answer but I must say I giggled – A LOT! It looked like a little kid went nuts in their mum’s make-up kit. Take a look….
I was intrigued and wanted to know if it would actually work or would I be walking around with ridiculously painted on brows. Brow Drama comes in two colours; Medium Brown and Dark Brown so I opted for the former as my brows ARE dark but not black.
When I first tried out the mascara wand it looked exactly like the ad – way too clown like for my taste! After playing around with it though I thought it may just be a winner. It feels a little odd to have my brows gelled into place but I guess that’s just because I’m not used to the feeling. I wanted to hate it but it looks like Brow Drama will be taking up permanent residency in my make-up bag!
Have you used Maybelline’s Brow Drama mascara or something similar? What did you think of it? Were you a member of the “sperm brow” club too?
