From thick, thin to unibrows, we have seen a lot of change in brow trends. Bushy brows are the thing of today and we don’t foresee them going away anytime soon.
Oh, but if you are not blessed with a pair of dense brows or your parlor lady happened to overpluck your eyebrows (saying that she only removed the extra!!!), there is a plethora of brow products to fit your need and instantly up your brow game.
I have used the sleek brow kit that I ordered off of Luxola a few years back (when they used to ship to India). I liked it but that was the only brow product that I owned… nothing to compare to. Then there was an upsurge of brow products from a lot of brands especially the drugstore brands. Me being Me, I tried a lot of them and realized that you cannot just go out to the market and buy a random brow shaping product. All of them perform differently and you gotta select a brow product depending upon your specific needs. (filling,shaping,defining,enhancing)
Here are the top 5 brow products (available in India) that I love…let’s see what they do….
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade (Shape & Fill)
So, if you have thin sparse eyebrows then Pomades are the best way to create sculpted brows in any shape and size. They are sweat/waterproof and last all day long. The only thing with brow pomades is that correct application is a must else you may end up looking fake. Always use a light hand and blend with a spoolie to make your brows look natural. Opt for a shade lighter than your natural brows, a dark shade will look too intense.
The Anastasia dip brow pomade is always my first choice. Read the full review here.
ColorBar Stunning Brow Pencil – Chestnut 001 (Fill & Intensify)
Availability: Buy Online@ Nykaa | ColorBar Countersblend properly to avoid a waxy finish.
This is a very creamy brow pencil that comes with the spoolie in the end. This product enhances the intensity of brows and works perfectly for bald patches but it is not for shaping. If you try to do so, the eyebrows look harsh and drawn-on. Remember to blend properly with the spoolie to avoid a waxy finish and use with a very light hand because the color is intense. The only con is that it is not meant for people with a lighter shade of brows because this product comes in a single shade.
Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara (Keep in place and Intensify a bit)
Availability: Buy Online @Nykaa
If you already like the shape and thickness of your brows and just want to amp up the intensity and keep your brows in place all day then this is it. This product is said to be the dupe of Benefit make me brow. I like how this tinted mascara enhances the look of the natural brows without going overboard. It is like a no makeup- makeup thing. The tinted gel of this eyebrow mascara contains tiny fibers that also fills in any unwanted gaps (slight gaps) for beautifully defined and full eyebrows.
Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper (Soften, Fill & Slightly Define)
Availability: Buy Online @Nykaa | Maybelline counters
Use this multitasking product for getting a fuller effect, deepen, or lighten the color of your brows. This is not essentially a brow shaping product. It can slightly define and fill the sparse areas of your brows with the help of pencil and when finished with the powder, the eyebrows look intense or soft (depending on the shade you choose, gray (lighten) or brown (deepen)). The end result looks more natural, less intense. The con of this product is that it wears off quickly hence needs reapplication for a long day. It can fill in but not do much with the shape because it is not too intense but a great product for beginners or for the ones who are looking for just a bit of definition for their brows.

L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit Medium To Dark (Slightly Shape & Fill)
Availability: Buy online @Nykaa | L’Oreal counters
This one from L’Oreal comes with a powder to slightly define and softly fill in the brows and wax for setting the powder. You can make your brows appear thicker and well groomed with this product and it lasts all day due to the finishing wax. Don’t expect to create a different shape with this one because it looks unnatural.
