Product Review: Project Vanity x Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel

Thursday, January 03, 2019

     For us girls, the expressions 'kilay is life' and 'brows on fleek' have a big impact on our daily lives. Achieving both may mean the world to us. Kidding aside, our brows give life to our face and without them, our face will be like Mona Lisa. Can you imagine yourself without eyebrows? I know it's sad that's why we are in constant search for a brow product that will give life to our brows.

     I have thin and almost non-existent brows and only a good brow product will give life to them. It’s true that I'm one of the ‘kilay is life’ girls when it comes to makeup because my brows give life to my face. I’ve tried a lot of brow products in the past and this is my first time to try a gel type that promises lifeproof, last-all-day hold in shades that compliments my Southeast Asian skin and hair color. Enter Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel- a rising star in the eyebrow makeup department that can pass as a dupe of a high-end brand. More information, photos, and swatches of the product below.

Product Review: Pink Sugar Honey I'm Good Brow Gel

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

     I'm so thankful to whoever invented genius and innovative beauty products that make every girl's life easier. These beauty products are really functional and easy to use. I presume that you've heard of eyebrow gels and mascaras. These eyebrow products sprouted like mushrooms in the beauty shelves and almost all the brands, from cheap to mid-range and high-end ones have a tube or two in different colors for us to try!

     If you're into eyebrow products and wants to achieve those eyebrows on fleek look, it's now time for you to try eyebrow gels. It's an eyebrow product that looks similar to mascara but intended for the eyebrows. Pink Sugar launched early this year their eyebrow gel line- Honey I'm Good Brow Gel. Full review details, photos, and swatches below :)

     You can see in the three swatches above that blonde is the lightest shade and the shade that only a few can pull off. I tried that shade on my bare face and I look so different. It's like I've bleached my eyebrows and made it lighter making me look like Mona Lisa.

My bare eyebrow- right side

Blonde is a shade that only a few can pull off. In my case, I can say it makes my eyebrow look non-existent.

Taupe matches my hair color

Product Review: Pink Sugar Honey I'm Good Brow Gel
Brunette is a bit dark but I think I can also pull off this color if I'll use a very light stroke during application.

What I like:
  • The price is affordable.
  • The packaging is sleek but has a generous amount of product in every tube.
  • The brush is okay, the space in the wand helps in spreading the product 
  • Doesn't have funky or weird scent.
  • The texture and consistency is light, like a water-based cream. 
  • It's highly pigmented and dries matte.
  • There are three shades to choose from.
  • The formula doesn't clump.
  • It's long-wearing.
  • This brow gel can be used alone or in conjunction with eyebrow powders and liners to give your brows a more dramatic and on fleek look. 
  • Since I have thin hair brows, I only need one coat to cover the hair strands.
  • No irritations, breakouts, or whatsoever on my forehead or in my eye area. 
  • Batch, manufacturing, expiration date is printed on the packaging.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like:

  • Can be a bit tricky to apply if you have stray eyebrow hairs.
Will I repurchase? Definitely Yes! If you change your hair color from time to time, you need to buy all the shades to compliment your current hair color.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. This is a good eyebrow product for beginners and pro. If you have clean brows, you can use this alone for that natural look. If you want to define your brows, you can use this as a topper for a more polished eyebrow on fleek look. 

     If you're planning to buy one shade, it's still best to visit Pink Sugar counters and swatch all the shades to see if it compliments your hair color and skin tone. 

Have you tried eyebrow gels and mascaras? What's your fave brand?

Good Times!~
