Product Review + Giveaway!: Billion Dollar Brows

Recently I was contacted by Billion Dollar Brows to try out some of their products and it couldn't have come at a better time. I've been using an eyeliner pencil for my brows and I just wasn't happy with it. I've found myself checking out everyone's eyebrows and wondering what they use to get them to look that way. I've been looking for something else, but just didn't really know where to go or what would be best for my brows. Now, thanks to BDB, my brows have never looked so good!

I got to test out four different products, and here's how they worked for me:

First up, I tried their Brow Buddy Shaping Kit to get the perfect brow look. It's the easiest tool to use to find where your brows should start, where the arch should be, and where they should end. Honestly, I thought this was easier than the popular pencil trick. Although I've never used stencils, I couldn't imagine using those either! This tool is helps you to find what's best for YOUR eye shape. Genius!

Next up, I tried their Hint of Tint brow gel in blonde. The brush is just like a mascara wand and you just swipe it across your brows to add color, sweep on more coats for a deeper shade. I've been super interested in trying a brow gel, I thought it would be easy and also double for keeping my brows in place (right now I use clear mascara). This product is really easy to use, but didn't really work for my thin brows. It would be perfect for someone with thicker brows who need some color, similar to those like Lily Collins, Camilla Belle, or Anne Hathaway.

Oh my word. I am in love with this Universal Brow Pencil! My sister in law who went to beauty school always tells me to pick up a universal brow pencil for my brows, she swears by them. However, I couldn't find one anywhere. Thank you BDB for sending this gem to me! Like I said earlier, I've been using an eyeliner pencil for my brows (I used to use a Maybelline one that I swore by, but I've just outgrown it, I needed something with more oomph), but haven't used anything as fabulous as this. Similar to the Hint of Tint above, use more for darker color. This pencil really is universal, it would work for super blondes as well as dark brunettes. The pencil is creamy and glides on easily as well as blends in perfectly. Love it!

Finally, another brow gem! The BDB Brow Powder in Taupe. This shadow is available in four shades, Blond, Light Brown, Raven, and Taupe. I like to apply this with a slanted eye liner brush like this one, I feel that it gives me more control than a flat topped one. For my brows I've switched back and forth over the years between powders and pencils, but I felt like the powders were always too dark- that is not a good look either. I love, love, love this powder. It's amazing! I switch back and forth between the Universal Brow Pencil and this powder. It goes on easily without being too much or too little that you spend more time on your brows than necessary.

No joke, I'm in love with the pencil and powder and definitely plan on using these products moving forward. They're definitely worth purchasing! Now that my eyes are beautifully groomed, I feel like an adult. Is that weird? I just feel so much more put together knowing that my brows are how they were meant to be.
