That’s better! Right, in my ‘One and Only’ tag I spoke about my favourite brow product which you can find here. I thought I’d never love another brow pencil like I loved that thing. I was ready to run off into the sunset with it in all honesty… but then I found Brow Satin.

I picked up the Maybelline ‘Brow Satin’ for about £5 from Superdrug on a whim as they had a ‘3 for 2’ offer on and I thought it’d be a good back up. I picked up the shade medium brown as I already have the Maybelline ‘Brow Drama’ in that shade so I know it’s the right colour for me.

DSCN1334These two products together are amazing! The Brow Satin is a ‘gel pen’ one end and a ‘filling powder’ the other. I find that my brows look fine when I just the the pencil end but if I use the pencil and the powder together… oh my. And then if you set your brows with the Brow Drama… oh boy oh boy. Brow heaven people.

DSCN1339DSCN1336The idea is that you get the shape you want with the crayon-ey gel like end, and then you fill in the sparse areas with the weird soft end. If you don’t like your brows to look too sculpted I wouldn’t go for this as it’s meant to make your brows look a lot smoother, fuller and natural looking. How many times can we say brows?

DSCN1340Most days I’m done after just using the Brow Satin but if I’ve got a long day so I need my brows to last I’ll add a little Brow Drama and those bad boys are going no where. I think there is a clear formula available but as I got the tinted gel I usually go in with a bit of a lighter hand than normal when using the Satin so they aren’t too dark, and then by adding the Drama over the top I get the colour I want. If you do just one light ‘coat’ with this you get a natural/firm hold, but you could definitely go over your brows two or three times if you like them to be really cemented down.
