I was recently at the Glossier HQ in New York which was incredibly cool. It was an amazing experience to have, the coolest part being that I got to swatch and photograph every single thing they sell (which means you should expect a ton of posts with all of the glossier products). This post will be about one of their best selling items: the boy brow.
I was super excited about this except for one catch: would the brown be too dark? I’d seen varying images on social media about how strong it is so I was unsure.
As far as brows go, I’ve only used two brow products in my life (besides, horror of horrors, a shimmery eyeshadow), which was the Julep Don’t Leave Your Brows at Home and the Benefit brow gel. The Benefit brow gel left my brows crust and shiny in an unnatural way and the Julep pomade was both bad and way too warm for me.
So with that being said, I went into this experience excited, but a little hesitant. Would it be like the Benefit gel? Would the color match my brows? What was in store for me inside the Glossier Showroom?
The clear shade looks a little milky and dries milky too (though I wouldn’t recommend applying huge globs of it to your eyebrows the way I did to my hand).
The blond shade is a pretty standard light, light, brown. I almost considered getting this to make sure the color wasn’t too dark on me. However, I’m happy to say that the brown is nice and light and it’s cool toned! The black is not quite as jet black as a liquid liner, but it’s still pretty dark.
I tried this on in store (there were tester wands) and it looked extremely natural and light. I’m also happy to say this was nothing like the Benefit gel. This perfected my brows without making them look stenciled in or crusty.
I’m happy to say that I picked up the shade in brown so I can’t wait to play around with it! Thus far, I love it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a natural foolproof brow product.
