Review | Born Pretty Eyebrow Gel*

I was recently asked to choose some products from Born Pretty Store to review; one of the items I chose was their Eyebrow Gel*, as I've tried pencil and powder brow products in the past and was curious to see how a gel would match up! If I'm wearing make-up, I will fill my brows in without fail, as they're naturally quite fair compared to my hair and I think my face looks strange without them. I really like the way doing my brows adds a bit of definition to my face and really brings a look together.
Born Pretty Store Eyebrow Gel Review
As a budget brow gel option, I think you can do far worse than Born Pretty's; the packaging doesn't feel high-end, but it's sturdy and does the job. The spoolie-style applicator is maybe a little bigger than I'd ideally like, but with a careful application it works just fine. I chose #1 which is the darkest of the three shades available; if I was going to order again I think I'd give #2 a try and see if that's a better match for me.

The formula takes a few minutes to dry properly, so I do need to be careful not to smudge it in the meantime. Once it's dry, though, it's not going anywhere; it actually takes a bit of removal and seems to have a slight staining effect which is nice, though could be inconvenient if you need to do a clean-up operation - you win some, you lose some, I guess! I've been really impressed with the natural definition this gives to my brows - as long as I'm careful when applying, as it is quite easy to end up going in too heavy-handed and achieve an unintentionally fierce brow!

(We'll just ignore the fact I've definitely blink-smudged my mascara here. I promise I fixed that before I left the house!)
I do think shade #1 is a little on the dark side for me and it's very easy to go over-the-top which is a shame, but that's not a fault of the product as such! Aside from that, I really like this product; it's easy to use and lasts well which is basically all I can ask for from a brow product. Born Pretty's Eyebrow Gel is available here priced at £2.34; with a choice of three shades I think there's something to suit most people and at this price there's really no reason not to give it a try! You can even get 10% off by entering my discount code 'JESSMK31' at the checkout. What do you use on your brows - are you a pencil, powder or gel kinda girl? Would you try Born Pretty's Eyebrow Gel?

  1. I have such mixed feelings about these products! I have a Hard Candy version (though that one has additional fibres, and isn't just a colour) and I feel it's so easy to go overboard with application even when you're extra cautious. From the photo I think the colour looks nice!
