Facial hairs can make or break your looks. Hairs sprouting at the wrong place and the wrong time can easily qualify for a nightmare. But given the due care and trimming, facial hair, like eyebrows, can bring out the best in our features.
Some people would often just ignore their eyebrows. Or even choose to slather it with just about anything just to get away with it. Imagine how these pretty faces of Hollywood would fare without eyebrows:
Note: please excuse my poor photoshop abilities, but you get the picture. Pretty scary, huh? More so if you are like me who’s been bestowed with a thin patch of unruly eyebrows.
As much as I want to tweeze them, I have to be super careful because I have little hair to start with. Shaping them is also a big challenge because my eyebrows seem fond of growing every which way.
Given my dilemma, I am thankful for two things which took care of it: a professional who fixed my eyebrows and taught me how to maintain it thru plucking; and the Smashbox Brow Tech Trio in Taupe/Soft Brown.
Paired with Smashbox’s angle brow brush no. 12, this trio of eyebrow powders and wax lands this little compact a special place in my makeup kit. A precious addition to every make up collection, Smashbox Brow Tech Trio helps groom eyebrows in the most natural way possible.
The brow trios have two shades of hair color-coordinated powders for a perfect match every time. Fill in brows with the lighter shade, define with the darker, then use the wax to seal them in place all day.
I spotted this in Beauty Bar in Eastwood. I thought this would be a good upgrade from the old eyebrow pencil that I have been using. It comes in a plastic case with matte black finish. I just wish that the lid was not a screw-on, just a pop up or flip up one so it wouldn’t be lost when it rolls off (which in my case, happens a lot).
According to the instructions, first apply the lighter shade in the fullest part of brows to naturally fill brows in. The darker shade is for defining the outer part of brow. Then finally, apply the wax for perfectly groomed brows.
WHY the Smashbox Brow Tech Trio in Taupe/Soft Brown is a winner:
- it is lightweight and handy
- it is easy to apply
- it blends well
- it is odor free
- it lives up to it’s promise of well-groomed brows for the whole day (even when I’m already sweaty, but of course, no rubbing it out)
WHY the Smashbox Brow Tech Trio in Taupe/Soft Brown comes in last:
- it’s so pricey! At $24.00, plus $20.00 for the angled brush that’s about PHP2,000.00 plus!
- it can only be bought from Beauty Bar and online like direct from Smashbox and other legit sellers.
Will I buy it again?
Oh yes! I’m so loving this, I think it’s worth the money. I love the way my brows look so natural. My wallet, be ready.
