this is a great product. i've been using this for a month now and i can not live w/o it. once i seal my brows w/this my eyebrows are set until i wash my face. love it!
I don't know if anyone else has experienced severe headaches with this product, but I have. That is the number one reason why I will not repurchase this product. I works very well until the headache sets in and it's a wrap! I usually do not get headaches AT ALL!!! If there is another alternative without the side effect, please let me know!
This product is awesome!!! It will seal any type of eyebrow product you put on high end and drug store brands. It keeps your brows in place and smudge proof in this hot, humid summer months. I remove this with my Sonia Kashuk eye makeup remover. A must have!
Forget the LM and other cosmetic company clear mascara type brow gels, or even the colored one by Lancome. If you want your brow powder or pencil or just brow hairs themselves stay put this is it, a professional product. It comes with a cap with a brow brush. I must admit that I also used the second cap accesory it came with, a brush, for my lips and my lipstick stayed put for hours, after meals, etc. It did not sting like Lipchic or Lipcote (I am always looking for something to keep m/u in place). You get a generous size for about less than the price of Lancome brush gel, I would say a good 5-10 times the amount for $18. This company has a website where you can get this and their other products. The results are tremendously better than any other wand type product I have tried including just clear mascara.
I have very light brow hair, it's very very thin & missing some hair in some places. I must enhance my natural brows daily ( using Rimmel dark black brown pencil & MAC's cork eyeshadow or charcoal brown on top to get the look I desire). By doing those steps followed by applying brow sealer on top I have natural looking brows that don't wipe off during the day. They wear very well in the hot humid weather as well. Recommend this to anyone who needs all day brows. Apply it lightly as it will look like dry skin (flaky) if applied with a heavy hand. continued >>
i was in desperate need to find a brow sealer because i was going to go on a trip to Six Flags Magic Mtn with my bf...let me tell you...i went through 9-10 rollercoasters + lots of sweating (due to standing out in the heat for 1.5 hrs on average for each ride) and i didnt have to touch up my brows at all! Also, i use this sealer before i go to sleep and a good 90% of my penciled brows r still in tact when i wake up! THUMBS UP!!
Like the poster below, it was starting to get a little embarrassing emerging from some luvin' only to see my brows have half disappeared. This is good stuff. Definitely "locks in" and sets your brows, lasts until you remove it yourself. I have sparse/thin, patchy brows (Asian) and I absolutely refuse to leave the house without filling them in, no matter how late I'm running :p (if you saw them you'd understand, I look like an expressionless splotchy alien or something). It comes with 2 applicators--a spoolie and a brush that looks similar to nail polish applicators. You can use any brow product with this, and it will seal it. It didn't budge when I rubbed my brows with my fingers. This stuff is watery and smells like alcohol, but once it dries, it's there to stay!
However, don't expect this to work miracles for brows drawn on bare skin. I noticed in places where they are especially thin/sparse, where there is more skin than hair (the inner parts of my brows, where the brows start, in my case) it tends to fade a little. So I imagine this would only help drawn-on brows last for just a limited about of time, depending on your activities (brows are srs bizness) before fading. I think this product is much more effective at sealing pencil/powder for already existing brow hairs.
It does feel a bit "stiff" on my face, but I don't mind it because it works so well and does what it claims. It's a bit tricky for me to apply as well; I use the spoolie but I wish the applicator was longer so there's more control.
EDIT: IME, this works much better with brow powders than waxes. Somehow it doesn't smear away when I brush this stuff on and lasts much longer than with wax based pencils, with less fading. I use my old Shiseido brow compact with this. I've upped the lippies to 5.
A MUST-HAVE FOR ANYONE WHO COLORS IN THEIR BROWS!! This product is AMAZING!!! I have VERY sparse eyebrows, thanks to my Asian heritage, and have to use an eyebrow pencil to fill in my brows every day. (As a beauty consultant, I know that your eyebrows make your whole face so I'm a perfectionist when it comes to them.) Unfortunately, I also have very oily skin, which makes my makeup slide and I've always had to touch up my eyebrows every couple of hours. (If I didn't, my eyebrows would be non-existent by the end of the day.) Also, before finding this product, I was always scared that when my boyfriend touched my face, he'd wipe an eyebrow off by accident, which would be REALLY awkward. I also always avoided dipping my head in the water at the pool or beach because I knew that if I did, my eyebrows would be gone when I resurfaced. (Yes, it was that bad.) I was seriously considering having permanent makeup tattooed on my brows so I wouldn't have to worry about having an eyebrow wiped off all the time. When I saw this product, I did some quick googling to read its reviews and it has rave reviews everywhere. I bought a pack of 2 bottles from overstock.com for $19.95 and I am SO HAPPY that I purchased this eyebrow sealer - it is a HOLY GRAIL product for me - this definitely seals my eyebrow color in place when I use the white sealing brush and it also contains a spoolie brush that I can use to groom the hairs I do have and make sure none of them sticking out of place. I definitely recommend this product to anyone and everyone who colors in their eyebrows and doesn't want to worry about having their brows fade, smear, or smudge anymore. A+++++++++!!!!
