Welcome back to my weekly beauty blog post. Today I will conducting my first product review and first impression on the WunderBrow 1-Step Brow Gel. I am currently working on this post while en route to California to see my family and of course, visiting Disneyland for my niece's birthday! I used to feel there was a lack of time available, however lately, I have been feeling the opposite. Instead of feeling like I don't have time, I create time for events and tasks that are at the top of my list! Especially like working on my blog and business, which to me is essentially working on myself and becoming a calmer version of me.
WunderBrow, a social media born brand has had me itching to try the WunderBrow 1-Step Brow Gel for a long time! After viewing multiple videos online, I wanted to try the Gel for myself. (P.S. This brand is at CVS now)
This product claims to:
- Be waterproof after 2 minutes
- Last for days until you take it off (I didn't test this, I don't think any one should be wearing makeup for days lol...I will go with "How it held up during the one day test")
First off I am going to say I am a die hard Anastasia Dip Brow fan (Who else?). I use Dip Brow in my kit for clients and myself. I love Dip Brow because it allows you the creative ability to craft beautiful brows lasting brows. When I am using Dip Brow, I do have a eyebrow routine that requires multiple steps ensuring its longevity (I will share my brow routine in another post!). To ensure the long lasting effects of my Dip Brow product I do the following:
- Add brow powder to fill in gaps and to set the pomade
- Add brow Gel to ensure longevity and to style brows
I am always searching for beauty products that can improve my efficiency in getting ready! Can this one product replace my beloved eyebrow routine!?
I ended up purchasing two colors; Brunette and Black Brown. The Black Brown is more up my alley as the Brunette washed me out (I discovered that after a girls dinner where pictures were taken LOL).
My first impression is that is it difficult to create a shape because of its liquid texture. It is almost too watery. The longer you work it, the more it drys and gets tacky. The gel then gets saturated to the hairs and this is when the spoolie is handy! Using the spoolie, I comb through and break up the gel, which fluffs them out a little bit, so the brows do not look chunky. I believe this product was designed to replace brow pomade, powder, and gel. However, something about the texture of this product and its application on the skin/hair makes the end product look patchy. The longevity is great, but the patchy application causes me prefer Dip Brow.
I will still continue to use this product, but for now it won't replace my current beloved routine mainly due to the difficulty of creating a consistent shape. I will be testing the longevity furthermore during my day with my family at Disney!
