Thick eyebrows – how do you feel about them? Me, I share a love/hate relationship. Love, because it looks modern and polished if done right. Hate, because they end up being so overwhelming if you have a small face like I do. It just feels like I painted too much and ends up looking unnatural. To be honest, my brows do look  lost without any help. Every three weeks or so, I must get them threaded and even after that, they need all the help they can to look polished. For a natural look, I do prefer Annabelle’s Skinny Brow Pencil (review here). But for a stronger brow, Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow in 35 is my weapon of choice.

Now, I have to be upfront and say I am not head over heels in love with this thing. It is nice and I do get the hype around it, but no way it will work for everyone. If you have sparse brows and I myself do in spaces, this thing is not easy to use and can end up looking quite fake, for the lack of better words. Other than that, I don’t have much complains. The packaging is unique for a brow product and it works! You need as little product as you can possibly imagine to do your brows, so the value is there. Oh, and this thing stays put for hours!!! As for the kind of brows you will end up with – well, they are thick and look quite drawn on. Very theatrical. Take a look for yourself…

As much as I love the effect, I do feel that it is not an every day brow product for me. It is nice for taking pictures for FOTD’s and going out and stuff. Not for school or everyday. So that’s that. Oh, and I use a small angled brush from Sigma to fill my brows, just thought you should know :)

This product is not for everyone, but it is great if you love full, theatrical brows.

    That is precisely why I was so hesitant to pick up this product–I am deathly afraid of the fake, obviously-drawn-on brow look and I thought that this product might do just that. I’m sure it works great for those people who like a dramatic look, but I have VERY sparse brows too and I think this would look really weird on me :/ I actually think it looks great on you though. You have really nice, dark brows and these just make them look darker and more shapely. Mine are so light, this would probably make it look like I had taken a brown sharpie to my brows

      Oh, wow – I am totally surprised that they don’t considering MUFE is such an inclusive brand. I hate when THESE kinds of mainstream, inclusive brands forget to include the ends of the spectrum. It’s just rude and frustrating. I hope MUFE listens. But like I said, I don’t think it is an everyday brow product for me. I much prefer a pencil or powder. Much more natural.

    Your brows don’t look freakishly drawn or anything, but maybe they do in real life? I remember when I started filling in my brows I thought they looked weird and over the top, but that was just until I got used to seeing myself like that. Yours still look quite natural to me.
