Eyebrow Week, Day 7: Kryolan Eye-Brow PlasticSaturday, December 06, 2014
It's the last day of #eyebrowweek and I am feeling a little bit sad because there are still so much to feature about eyebrows! But I would have to stop at seven because I have so much more beauty products to show you in the coming days!
So, now let's discuss about unruly eyebrows. Are you one of those people who suffer from brows that have minds of their own? Like the hairs seem to be going on a hundred different directions no matter what product you put? You are not alone! There are women (even men!) who have eyebrow hairs who stick out in different directions and clear mascara or even hair spray just won't cut it!

Curious? More after the break!
I first discovered this when I had a shoot for Good Housekeeping a while back. Maybe back in 2012 or 2011. I was doing the makeup of a Brazilian model and she had the most stubborn eyebrow hairs in the history of eyebrows. The shape was very good but the hairs just won't stay in one direction no matter what I did. That's when she asked me if I wanted to use her eyebrow wax that has always worked out for her.
She brought out her Kryolan Eye-Brow Plastic and showed me how to use it. And miraculously, her brows stayed groomed and in place in one direction until the end of our shoot which was about 5 hours later.
I have always used Kryolan every since I started doing makeup in 2004, but I never came across this brow wax before. I have seen brow waxes before and have tried them but never had this effect before.
But I have been using this on myself and on my brides and clients for years now. Thank you to that model, whose name I forgot, for introducing me to this product!
This product should be applied after you have applied your brow products (even after your brow mascara if any), instead of applying it before. The texture is very waxy and a little bit sticky so best to use it after applying your brows.
Some women suffer from eyebrow hairs whose strands are tough and very thick. Some unruly brows can't be tamed because of how their brows were made to grow. Other brows are also so thick that they seem "lifted" from your face. This is the answer to your prayers!
You can purchase Kryolan products here in Manila in their main branch: 3/F IL Terrazzo, Tomas Morato Street, Quezon City or in their SM North Edsa branch at L2, SM City North EDSA, North Ave, Quezon City, Philippines.
