Physicians Formula: Brow-Tweez 3-In-1

Of course I have tons of makeup! But, the one type of product I don’t have a lot of is brow items. I found this Physicians Formula Brow-Tweez 3-In1 at the Dollar Tree and hey, what’s a buck?…

I have dark blonde hair *cough, cough* so I picked up the Dark Blonde shade. If anything, I have three tools in one that would be good for traveling…

I don’t think I have ever seen tweezer instructions before…

But, it’s good info to know! These tweezers are super stiff. Yet, ironically, they are able to grasp the tiniest of hairs. I have grown to like them a lot…

I bet you can tell by the look of the product that it’s gonna be hard…

Once I got it rolling on my brows, it did a bit better but this didn’t seem to be a good start…

After using this for a week, the product did get just a wee bit less hard but it still has a lot of drag. But then, I did get it at the Dollar Tree so it would stand that this is a discontinued product by Physicians Formula. Again, I can see throwing this in my travel makeup bag for the tweezers alone. I don’t feel I wasted my money just to have a nice pair of tweezers.

Nothing but a clean face and Physicians Formula Brow-Tweez 3 In 1…

Since leaving Florida, over a year ago, I haven’t found anyone around the Denver area that does brow-threading. I wish I could find someone. I’m just on my own for now.

How important is brow grooming for you? Do you like brow pencils, liquids, powders, or something else?

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Bold And Beautiful Kit

Well, hello there! Not one to do things in a small way, I have moved from Florida to Denver. Can you say ‘change in climate’? Can you say ‘skin changes!?’ More to come on that experience.

Anastasia Beverly Hills has been giving us a lot of new products. How about that Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder?!!! I’ll be doing a review on that fun product very soon.

But today, I have a classy kit from Anastasia to show you called Bold and Beautiful. If you like neutral shades yet enjoy the flexibility of going from a soft look on up to something bold, you are going to love this eyeshadow palette. And, if you are looking to create a chic brow, Anastasia has that covered too.

As always, Anastasia Beverly Hills delivers a very beautiful package…

Even though the two shades in the palette look different, they swatch very similar…

The palette got a bit of fall out when I loaded my brush but ,I didn’t get any on my face when I applied it.

Here are swatches of the eye shadows…

This is the type of product I like to use when I need to have a neutral look, whether I’m meeting a client or just running errands for the day. Both palettes are not complicated yet, give me the tools necessary to make a bold and beautiful look.

Anastasia Beverly Hills products can be found at Ulta, Sephora and other fine department stores.

elf Studio: Eyebrow Lifter And Filler

Creating groomed and artful brows is a skill. I’ve gone from the full brow to the thin line look and allowed trends to show me the way. However, almost 2 years ago, I got tired of having what I call ‘slashes’ for brows. No arch there. Just a somewhat straight line. I got this inclination to start pulling and see if I could create an arch. Something that would ‘open up’ my eyes. I like what I’ve achieved, but my eyebrow threader says I have over-plucked. I don’t care though.

But in order to have that arch, I did have to pull enough that I have a thin patch on the outside of the arch peak. No biggie. I now use brow filler makeup.

elf has a brow pencil and I thought I’d give it a try…

I chose the light (brown) shade because I already have darker fillers. This one seemed to fit the bill…

Shoot, they thought of everything. The cap is even a sharpener. It works very well, too.

The other end of the pencil is a highlighter. By adding a lighter, contrasting shade, right under the brows, it creates the illusion of the brow’s arch intensified.

The color is called ‘Ivory’ but it has more of a peachy shade to me. And I only need just a hint of this otherwise, it looks like clown makeup…

Even though I prefer a powder brow liner, I found elf’s Eyebrow Lifter and Filler does a great job. I like that this would travel well. It is one step rather than applying powder then setting it with brow wax.

And for a measly $3, it was an easy investment. The Vanity is going to give it the seal of approval.

Do you groom your brows with a pencil, powder or a liquid liner? What’s your preferred method?
