The best brow fixers for under €20 (and one to avoid)

Eyebrow products are not worth spending a fortune on – and beware of over-promisers

 

Mac Brow Set (€18 Brown Thomas and Arnotts)

This is a handy little product to set your brows and add a tint of colour. It’s great for using over a liner but you need some skill to use this alone.

L’Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit (€15.29 Boots)

If you have gaps in your brows, or are looking for something waterproof, brow wax is the way to go. There are a few similar (and more expensive) kits available that include a wax, a power, a brush and tweezers. This holds its own against them. If you are anything like me you’ll lose the brush and tweezers in a week, but the powder and wax are worth keeping hold of.

Anastasia Brow Powder Duo (€20 cultbeauty.co.uk)

Powder is great for people who want to add some more volume. With seven palettes available, and all with bendable colours, you’ll be hard pressed to find a shade that doesn’t suit you. I have quite blonde brows and the search was long for the right colour. This stuff is spot on.

Revlon Brow Fantasy and Pencil Gel (€11.49)

This handy tool combines a pencil and a gel in one. Use light strokes to colour in with the pencil, and then set with the gel. They could probably do with a broader range of colours, as there are only three available. But this is a great two-in-one product for your handbag.

Maybelline Brow Precise Fibre Volumizer (€9.99 Boots)

The moment I heard about this I wanted to try it. It promises to give you “three-dimensional fuller brows” using a “fibre-infused filling mascara” which when you really think about it, doesn’t mean much. It doesn’t do much either, other than make your eyebrows hairs get very sticky and clump together. Give this one a miss.

Sleek MakeUp Eyebrow Stylist (€8.49 Boots)

I’ve always believed that there are certain beauty products it’s not necessary to spend loads of money on, and this proves my point. Sleek’s Eyebrow Stylist is the cheapest product on the list and my new favourite. It’s a ringer for more expensive brands, with an angled pencil on one end and a styling brush on the other. It’s really buildable, goes on easy and stays put all day.
