Question of the Week: On a typical day, how many products do you use on your brows?
I have sparse, very light brows and would love to be able to get microblading to fix my tails. Since that isn't in the cards for me at the moment, Fiona Stiles Brow Sculpting Wax ($13) has been my go-to for about three months. While Stiles only has one color, the harder the pressure when applied, the deeper the color appears. It doesn't move, come off with sweat and looks totally natural. It fills in gaps, keeps unruly hairs in control and stays put. I haven't found a huge amount in that line that I really love, but the brow wax is worth every penny. (Plus, it will last you more than a year, easily.) How many brow products do you use?
I just posted about this the other day, but in case you missed it, you've got to check out this Chocolate Truffle Exfoliator from Jan Marini. It's almost too chocolate-y to use. Seriously, I'm not sure you can handle just how chocolatey delicious this smells. If you have a chocolate lover on your holiday list, grab these up before they are gone for the season.
