Product Rave: Gabriella Eyebrow Pencil

Hi Mavens!!

I apologize, had an early night last night so this is a two fer! Hope you enjoy!

Now I love a cheap find, especially when it comes highly recommended. So I have an MUA friend who believes in these little brown nuggets of joy. Shout out to TheMakeupGeeksCo! The Gabriella brow pencil in dark brown was introduced to me by their management about 6 months ago, and I finally got my hands on one two weeks ago. It is BEAUTIFUL. Not to waxy, too hard or soft, and it gives a soft, natural almost brow powder finish to the brows.

If you are not a sculpted brow kind of girl, this works for you too. It deposits the colour evenly and it gives a nice flawless finish.

This is what it looks like.

Pros:

Pigmented
Stable
applies easily
long lasting
costs $2.00 BDS

Cons:
The length. This pencil is not average, in fact it's quite short.
Sells out quickly

Two cons people! seriously, go get you one. Available at most beauty supply stores here in Barbados, and available online as well, just google it!

This could be your result with practice, this pencil and a little dark brown eyebrow powder.

Browwwwssss.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
