NYX Eyebrow Shaper - Is It Worth the Hype?

HELLO! My brow hairs are quite long and unruly and tend to look droopy if I don't trim them. For years I used clear mascara and brow gels on my eyebrows to give them a polished look but then it won't help much in keeping my thick dark brows in their place for the entire day.
Last week I was browsing the NYX website and came across the NYX Eyebrow shaper and after reading the discription I decided to give it a try. I paid around £8 for the stick. I received the NYX shaper a couple of days back and after trying it on my brows I've to say that I am pretty impressed with it!

The NYX Eyebrow Shaper is basically a wax pencil. I run the NYX Eyebrow stick along my eyebrows and use a spoolie brow brush to comb over the eyebrow area and the wax keeps by bushy brows in place for a good few hours. The wax in the pencil is smooth and colourless and has the right consistancy, it's enriched with Vitamin E and it's not too stiff to tug hairs out or make things all gunky, but it's hard enough that it doesn't feel greasy when applied. I've also noticed that Brow powders/pencils stick to it very well and doesn't look shiny at all. Since the product is housed in a pencil/stick form, its really quick and easy to apply, especially while travelling.

The only downside is that the NYX Eyebrow Shaper isn't strong enough to tame my brows for more than a few hours but I'm yet to meet a brown gel/wax that actually does hold them in place all day. Apart from this, I'm definitely a fan of NYX Eyebrow Shaper! It's a wax pencil that keeps my eyebrows in place!

  3. I see the difference. I need a product like this, as my brows can get a bit out of control too.

    Wow, your eyes are so beautiful.
