Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara Review

Essence happens to be one of my most favourite drugstore brand and it is no surprise I put it into my top 5 most affordable Malaysian drugstore makeup brand (post link here). On their website they claim to be cruelty free and apparently they also use minimal animal ingredients.

Previous Essence product reviews (Lipliner, here; Essence Eyeshadow Base, here; Essence Matt Bronzing Powder, here; Essence Longlasting Eye Pencil, here; Essence Lash and Brow Gel Mascara, here).

This product is very similar to another popular brow product that is also named very similarly *wink*.

I love it by the way, and so this review is good!

It is a tiny wand. It is pretty scratchy but nothing I can't work around.

Can you see tiny fibres? That really fills up the brows!

Description: It is an eyebrow mascara with tiny fibres in it that help fill in the brows. It comes in two colours 01 (blondy brows) and 02 (browny brows). I have the darker one, i.e. 02. Contains 3.8 ml product.

Where to buy: Watsons [updated 14/072017].

Price: MYR 12.90 (as always, it’s a drugstore product and you could wait for a discount, but at MYR 12.90 you have nothing to lose!).

Hand swatch. It is cool tone grayish brown. Kind of a perfect match for me.

Tada!!! Filled in and full!

I don’t typically use it on its own. I like filling in my brows with a pencil first.

Pros:

Easy to use (not a product you can go overboard with).

The tiny fibers really fill the brows up.

The wand is really helpful and small enough to fit even thin brows.

Long lasting and keeps brows in place well (a good 6 to 7 hours if you don’t sweat or rub your face/brows).

Doesn’t make the eyebrows stiff or crunchy (I hate that! I’d rather use hairspray if a product did that!).

Dries fast.

 

Cons:

The wand is pretty stiff.

Not waterproof (not necessarily a con).

Not easily available.

 

Rating:

8.9/10

This rating may change depending on how it fares with the famous high end product. I have yet to try that one but when I do I’ll review that too!!! As for the product itself, it is A-MAH-ZING! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! I already have a freaking backup!

  1. For some reason all those fibres look unappealing to me! But I definitely appreciate it that helps creat more brow hairs but ick! πŸ˜› I’ve not used a brow mascara gel before – maybe it would help my sparse brows look fuller (currently I only use the Shu Uemura brow pencil).

    • Here’s the thing, I didn’t even notice the fibres the first few times I used it. When you see the swatches you don’t exactly see the fibres. When I did notice the fibres I was shocked because I thought my eyebrows were falling out!!! *cue horror music*
      Really, the fibres don’t appear as chunks on the eyebrows whatsoever! I doesn’t even rub off as particles. It’s only highlighted here because I really zoomed it in! Hahaha!

    • Stashy and you are on some kind of similar wavelength huh???? Hahaha! JK!
      Trust me, they’re a non-issue. They are only apparent on the wand. If you look at my hand swatch it doesn’t show up. Let it not bar your from trying it!

    • I don’t want to sound like a douchebag but I am really blessed with thick, full brows. I do not over-pluck and I always keep them in check! I do put effort into making them look good!
      And you’re are so sweet! Thank you so so much! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ❀ ❀ ❀
