Till date I have only used brow pencils, so this is the first time I had got my hands on a brow pomade. I actually happened to buy really suddenly, when Nykaa was giving flat Rs.500 for L’Oréal products. L’Oréal has recently launched their brow pomade which is available in two different colours; Ebony and Brunette. I have got the Ebony one, which is a darker shade.
Price: MRP is Rs. 799 (I got it on the day when Nykaa had the offer of L’Oreal products on flat Rs.500)
Quantity: 3 gm
Shelf Life: 2 years
Packaging: The product comes in a clear tub with a long silver screw cap. It comes with it’s own brush applicator. The cap includes the brush which is quite long and can actually be separately used as well. It’s not travel friendly, as this doesn’t fit in all wallets/purses.
How to use: Dip the brush in the pomade and then initially define the eyebrows. Thereafter brush through the outlines made to give a defined look.
My opinion about the product: The brush and its coverage makes it very easy to apply. The shade Ebony is perfect for little dusky Indian skin-tone. The brush applicator is very easy and convenient for smooth and precise application. And the brush is a perfect size, very thin for drawing the brow hairs and filling it.
It sets in very less time, making it very much user friendly. It stays for pretty 8-9 hours. The product makes the brows look much natural and fuller.
The product is also smudge proof and water proof. It only fades a bit with time, but does not transfer at all.
My likes and dislikes about the product:
- It is completely smudge proof.
- It is water proof.
- It is long lasting (around 8-9 hours).
- Gives good volume and fuller looking brows.
- Only two shades available.
- Not travel-friendly packaging.
I would rate it 3.8/5.
