Eyebrow Week Part 2 Day 6: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel

Friday, October 07, 2016

One of the best things I love about Bobbi Brown is their ability to create and provide us cosmetics to help us achieve the natural look. Bobbi Brown promotes the natural look better than any other brand, and they also promote great skin more than makeup.

So saying that, I had no doubts about their new long-wear brow gel that came out last spring, for it to create a natural looking eyebrow that lasts all day.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel in Rich Brown, PhP 1,400
We all know brows are everything, but until recently I left my brows alone (meaning, minimal plucking and no dyes). I don’t think I realized how much it can improve my appearance to have symmetrical groomed eyebrows, and just let them be for a while. Now my brows are dark, pretty full but asymmetrical. They need a bit of cleaning up, but nonetheless natural looking.

I had them recently groomed at Bare Naked in Glorietta 5, and they have had so much improvements in their service and you should read my updated post again.
Let's face it, we have all been on the lookout for the perfect brow product, and if you haven't found the one for you, then maybe this is it. I’ve been using a different eyebrow product everyday forever because I have so many, so I pretty much know which one works for me. But if you're still looking for the perfect one for you, you will have to try a whole bunch to find your HG.

This Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel is Rich Brown. Looking at the pan, you would think that it would be too dark for my skin tone and might end up looking like a muppet, but it's actually a good universal shade.
I love the fact that this brow product comes with a small compact mirror. No brush though, so you will have to bring with you your own eyebrow angled brush.
 Swatching it on my hand, you can see that it's medium pigmented and it creates a natural looking shade/shadow that you can use to fill in your brows, making it look fuller naturally. It is described by Bobbi Brown to have a reddish tone, but I don't see it actually.
This product is actually buildable if you find it too subtle looking. For me though, it's perfect because I really am not the drawn-brow look kind of girl.

Building the color may require you to let it set in between layers so that more pigment will be visible.
I used my old Bobbi Brown travel angle brow brush to apply the product and I must say that it's not too waxy that it makes it hard to apply.
The Bobbi Brown Long Wear Brow Gel Promise
  • Unique, multi-tasking gel-wax formula
  • Tinted gel hugs brow hairs to fill in and define
  • Provides firm but flexible, all-day hold
  • Combination of Beeswax and wax gellants
  • Applies effortlessly
  • Delivers instant pigment payoff

As for wear, I noticed that it did last the whole day and it did not rub off until I removed it with a sheet of cleansing wipes. I think this is a perfect alternative for women who are used to using pressed brow powders.

  2. I don't think this is worth the splurge as a lot of cheaper products have sprung up in the market!

    1. I agree... Specially for yuppies or bagets who are on a budget. This product is more for the pros and women who are Bobbi Brown lovers ♥
