I have talked about the brand Billion Dollar Brows several times in the past… and for good reason, I truly enjoy their products.  I have tried different types and was so excited to be given the opportunity to try out their newest product, the Billion Dollar Brows, Brows On Point Micro Pencil.  Today I’ll share with you swatches, my thoughts and more on this pretty cool product from a brand I have enjoyed the last several years.

The Brows On Point Micro Brow Pencils are waterproof and retail for $16.00 – available in 4 shades.  This brow product has been my go-to for my brows over the last 3 – 4 weeks and I have been enjoying it tremendously.  These awesome brow pencils are dual-ended, one side being the retractable and twist-up pencil and the other side a spoolie to help brush through your brows.  The pencil is so small that it allows you to create hair like brush strokes with precision but not too small that it gets lost in the movement and you have to work extra hard to make sure that the parts you filled in can’t be seen.  I love a good mechanical pencil (seriously – I have no time for sharpening) and this brow pencil has a super-fine self-sharpening tip which makes use a breeze.

The four colors available – Blonde, Light Brown, Taupe and Raven are not only a great selection for those different color hair, but it allows you to custom create the shade that works for you.  Blending and layering your pencils is easy to create the color that would suit your hair right.  I tend to use Taupe on it’s own but like to blend in a little of Raven for defining my brows more and giving them shape or Light Brown when I want my brows to look put together, but very natural.  Each shade is versatile and really allows you to customize the colors to fit your needs.

Did I mention that the formula is waterproof and smudge proof?  The formula of these pencils are creamy but firm and glide on with ease.  Again, they allow you to create tiny brow hairs when filling in your brows and the waterproof formula lasts all day.  I can put these on in the morning and still have “brows on point” for the entire day until I take my makeup off at night.  While I haven’t tried going into the ocean or pool to test these out… I can tell you that my stay-all-day brows literally keep it’s color and look great for many hours – even with the hot weather here in Hawaii.

I have mentioned the brand Billion Dollar Brows here on my blog many times as many of the products from the line are ones that I use daily as a part of my brow routine.  I was really look forward to trying something like this – thin enough for me to use (since their other brow pencil is a little thicker) and would last all day.  I’ve been enjoying it the last several weeks and really love how it has improved my every day brow routine.  Using this brow pencil is quick and painless… Literally fill in my brows, brush in place if need and set with my Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel and I’m good to go.

The photo above is of me showing off my brows in my Snapchat.  I just LOVE this product.  I have naturally full brows with lots of brow hair and often times some products can make me look too done up or make my brows look too bold.  Some brow products require you use a light hand or some practice to get it right and a good brow pencil should have those issues.  I can literally just scribble them on (haha – don’t scribble on your brows like me) and I’m good to go.  Of course, if I wanted to go bolder, I always have that option – but I love when a product allows me to wear it as I normally would and just gives my every day a look a little something extra.

Overall – after using several of the Billion Dollar Brows products, I can honestly say that I really enjoy the Brows on Point micro brow pencils.  I really enjoy them, love their longevity and staying power and love the size of them.  These pencils are great for travel because they are small – but you still get a lot of product considering the price you pay.  What makes them the best in my opinion is that I don’t have to worry about my brows getting dry or flaking like many other brow products can do and they wear well on me.  These are definitely going to be products I’ll continue to purchase and buy over the years.

You can purchase these products as well as others I have mentioned and discussed from Billion Dollar Brows here.

While brows are an important part of your face, I always like them to look full and natural.  I have my favorite products that I do love and enjoy to use, but one that I have continued to use over the last two years is the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit.  Of course, I do use these products in combination with other brands I love, but I find that this little kit is simple and easy to use while still offering me stellar brows in a heartbeat.

Here's to Billion Dollar Brows

I wrote about the Billion Dollar Brows Best Seller’s Kit ($42.00) before and it still continues to a set of brow products I reach for consistently (on the daily if only in part).  You can read about my original review of these products here, as my thoughts haven’t much changed.  I can say that I love love that it includes four universal products that can be used to not only conceal and highlight but set your brows and fill them in.  The Best Seller’s Kit includes four products:

Universal Brow Pencil which is formulated to work with most skin tones and hair colors.  It applies smoothly and natural and is so easy to use.   I also like that this brow pencil is automatic, so there is no need for sharpening and it comes with a spoolie brush on the opposite end for blending the pencil color with your natural brows.

Duo Brow Pencil has two sides, one for highlighting your brow bone and one side to help conceal those strays or for touch-ups.  I love the highlighter end because it works well with my skin tone and offers the perfect highlight that lifts my brows adding a subtle warmth and the look like I’m completely awake when I probably had no sleep. lol

The Brow Gel is one of my favorites.  It’s clear and helps to lock my brows in place, keeping them there without a crunchy or hard feeling.  It feels comfortable but still offers that “bulletproof” protection that I need on those days I want my brows to look nicely manicured.

A Smudge Brush is also included.  It is a flat, synthetic brush that works so well in applying the creamy duo brow pencil or for blending out the highlight under the brow bone.  I also love using it to apply any creamy cosmetics that I use.

This is the perfect little kit if you are just getting started with grooming your brows or if you want a kit that includes everything you need.  I highly suggest it and considering the cost and what you are getting, I think it’s well worth it.

The next set I will be chit chatting about is a new one to me.  I have tried many different brow powders, but not one from Billion Dollar Brows before.  I’ll be honest, I had wondered if it would even match my brow colors or would work for me since I’m not a fan of Taupe shades.  Taupe browns tend to make my brows look a bit ashy – so I try to go for a brunette match or something of a true brown.  The 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brow Kit ($24.00) is also reasonably priced and comes with a brow powder and a brow brush – two of the most popular brow products from BDB.  This kit really boasts that “if you have 60 seconds, then you can have a brilliant pop of color to your brows in only a minute.”

The set comes with a dual ended brush – a angled brow brush and a spoolie and the brow powder.  Again, I was impressed at how nicely the brow powder not only applied but how well it blended in with my natural brows.  I used this set whenever I’m on the go and in a hurry and literally apply the brow powder for a fuller brow look and I’m out the door.  If I want to really keep my brows in place, I’ll pull for the brow gel that will help to set them, but the powder works well and stays on all day.

There are so many different brow products available on the market today – from drugstore to highend, cream and liquid to powder types.  I have tried many and so many on the market can cause my brows to get dry.  I’m always impressed with Billion Dollar Brows and their products and look forward to trying out more from the brand in the future.  Overall, I think I have found a new favorite in the 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit and definitely still enjoy the Best Seller’s Kit now, as much as I did over a year ago.  Considering the price point you get a variety of products that you can taper to use according to your needs and you’ll get gorgeous statement brows easily and quickly.

It’s not very often that we chit chat brows here on the blog, probably because mine are pretty low maintenance for the most part so I don’t really pay too much attention to them.  However, today I join the Beauty Blogger Collaboration in sharing a little brow love.  I’m pretty blessed in that my brows are pretty full and usually I will just set them into place if I need to but otherwise, unless they need a little drama, they are simple as pie.  But, I figured I would share some of my favorite eye brow products with you and why I enjoy them so much.

Favorite eye brow products

Brows are really important as they frame the face and bring a look together.  My natural brows are fairly full so most times I will use a spoolie to comb them into place and if I feel the need, a little brow gel to hold their shape for the day.   Brow gels are probably the most essential in my arsenal, though I do have a few others that I enjoy.  I have tried many brow products over the years, but since I have sensitive skin – there are some that just do not work well for me or dry my brows out terribly.  I find that these products haven’t caused any of these issues so I continue to use them.

favorite brow products

First let’s talk brow gels.  This is my go-to and I will use it daily if I feel like my natural brows are unruly and out of control.  These two brow gels are clear and work well.  The NYX Control Freak has been a go-to for me over the last year (since it’s release) and I have a full review of this product which you can read up on here.  The Milani Brow Shaping Clear Gel is a favorite because of it’s small brush.  Both products offer nice control and hold without a crispy feeling.  They look natural and are easy to apply.  Out of all the brow products I own, I will pull for these the most for every day use and to set my brows in place when I have shaded them in.

favorite eye brow products

The next products on my list are brow tints or colored brow products.  These are easy just like the brow gels mentioned previously but they have a tint to them that will allow for shading in my brows.  These are especially perfect for those days during the summer when I tend to go lighter in my brows to match my hair that gets lightened quickly and easily from the sun.  These products will fill in any gaps and give my brows a lighter tone.

  • I have been using the Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel now for years and have repurchased this product many times.  In the shade caramel, this mascara like wand is perfect for shading in my brows and giving my brows a brighter and lighter appearance.  It lasts all day and keeps my brows in place for hours without budging.
  • Benefit’s Gimme Brow was added to my brow game last year and I’m not gonna lie… for the amount of product you get in a small little tube, it is pretty costly.  But, honestly – I have repurchased twice so I must like it.  The tiny little brush is perfect for filling in your brows and adding more volume.  The cream-like gel has tiny little fibers that fill in the brows to provide a natural brow look that is full and set in place.  I don’t use this product as much as the other tints because the shade is just a tad bit too ashy for me, but it works well during the winter months which is when I tend to pull for it most.
  • LASHEMS Colour Strokes Brow Tint and Lift in Brunette is one of my favorites and has a caramel toned shade that fills in my brows easily and sets those babies in place that they will not budge for hours.  I love to use this product especially in the summer to lighten my brows a tad but also keep them in place while I’m playing in the sun.  You can read my full review and see before and after photos on the LASHEM Colour Strokes Brow Tint here.

favorite brow products

Cailyn’s Gelux Eyebrow in Cocoa is a thick tinted wax that works perfectly to keep my brows in place but also for filling my brows in.  It has a thick consistency but it is also quite firm, not as creamy as you would expect.  Due to it’s firm wax texture, it makes shading in your brows really easy and provides a really nice texture so that it looks natural when applied.  Shaping my brows is easy with the built in brush and this product is great for travel.  This is not my “all the time” brow product – but when I really want a sculpted look, this works well and is a favorite.  This is much thicker than Anastasia Dip Brow but this is what I opted to use after Dip Brow caused my brows to dry out and flake.  It’s been a great alternative for me without the sensitivity issues and I love that Cailyn’s Gelux Eyebrow comes in 8 different shades, making it easy for me to lighten my brows up should I find the need.  I also love that this is waterproof… so I find it my go-to for days I want my brows in place but I know I’ll be sweaty or near the ocean or water play and it will last many hours on the brows.

favorite eye brow products

New on my favorites list are a few products from Paula Dorf and Jordana.  Paula Dorf’s 2+1 for Brows in Brunette is a great product to use when you want to shape and shade in your brows and then set with a built in wax.  Definitely a good product for travel.  I do love to use it when going out and I want a fuller brow shape.  If you are looking for longevity however, this product may not be good for a long day and is not waterproof.  But it is great for filling in the brows and the two shades available in the pot are perfect for days I want to go darker or lighter.  You can find three different shade selections for this brow set so you should easily be able to find the brow shade that matches best for you.

The next product is the Jordana FabuBrow Eyebrow Pencil.  This is just a simple drugstore pencil with a little brush at the end.  This pencil comes in 6 shades and I find that I can switch between a few of them depending on my “brow color mood”.  It’s easy to apply – just use as you would a regular brow pencil.  The color is long lasting but not waterproof and you can choose to set with a brow gel if you like.  I find I use this often because it is easy, affordable and it works.

favorite brow products

Last on my brow game list are some overall products from one brand I enjoy.  Billion Dollar Brows is a line I was introduced to early last year and I find that I really enjoy their products.  The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit is probably the best value for this line and includes everything you need to create some awesome brows.  Check out my post on this kit here.  I love that when applying these brow products they make my eyebrows look full but natural.  I don’t use it often, but I do love to use it when I have a full face of makeup (eye shadow, etc.) because it really frames my face nicely.

So that is my round up of favorite brow products.  I’m sure there are so much more out there.  At one time, the Wet n Wild Eye Brow Kit was my absolute favorite and if it was still easy for me to get my hands on – I would probably still be using it.  Like anything else beauty, what works for some – may not work for others.  It’s funny because a cult favorite in the beauty community actually did not work for me while others are considered my holy grail products.  That’s the great thing about beauty – everyone and everything is all about individual preference. 🙂  For example… I like a little color in my brows from time to time… so it’s okay to have fun with makeup!

Make sure to head on over to the lovely ladies of the Beauty Blogger Collaboration (links below) and see what they had to say about brows.  I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe learned about some products you haven’t heard of before.  What are your favorite eye brow products?  Do you have any on my list that you love or have tried?

Ah… those brows.  It seems like you hear all about brows now a days and I remember when there was a time when brows took a back seat to other parts of your makeup looks.  Truth be told, brows are important… the “unsung heroes” so to say because they not only provide a statement to your overall look, but they frame the face, giving you a polished appearance.  I’ll admit that sometimes my brows take a back seat in my beauty regime since I go bare face on a daily, but I believe they are important nonetheless.  Today I share with you the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit, some goodies to add to your brow game!

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit

The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit retails for $34.99 – a major steal considering it has a retail value of $73.00 if the items are purchased separately.  This is the first time I have used anything from this brand, so I really liked having a variety of goodies to play with.  The kit includes five products:

  • Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil
  • Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel Clear
  • Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Highlighter
  • Billion Dollar Brows Smudge Brush
  • Billion Dollar Brows Sharpener

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit

The Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil is such a unique product in that it takes the guess work out of trying to find the perfect shade to fill in your brows.  No more are the days of trying to match your hair color with your brow shade.  This Universal brow pencils is perfect for Blonds and Brunettes and offers a mechanical, self-sharpening pencil which goes on smooth and natural for all hair colors and skin tones.  Attached to the end of this pencil is a brow spoolie to help groom those strays into place.  Overall I like this product.  It’s water resistant, lasts all day on my brows and it has a light wax like texture that keeps my brows in place without the need to use a gel to set them.  If I had to make one suggestion, I wish the tip on this was a little more sharp, rather than rounded since I often like to have a precise edge… but that is personal preference and any error or mistakes can easily be cleaned up with the duo pencil or concealer if you would like.

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers KitThe Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel is clear and and helps to lock your brows into place.  This gel is lightweight and applies easily.  What I love the most about it is when used in combination with the Brow pencil, your brows are bullet proof and stay in place till you are ready to take them off.  I had my brows in place for 10 hours one day and when I went to remove my makeup at the end of the day – they were still there, bold and strong.  Also – it is guaranteed to never flake.

The Brow Duo Highlighter includes two products in one and is the secret weapon to adding definition and warmth to your brows.  This pencil will allow you to highlight your brow bone and for those who need it, it can also be used as a handy universal concealer.  Both shades offer a matte / cream finish and blend effortlessly.  I especially like that it gives my brow a nice lift at the arch when applied under my brow.  Use in combination with the Smudge Brush for perfect, show stopping brows.  A quick note… while I love the creaminess of this pencil, I find that it is a little more stiff than others I have tried.  That doesn’t affect the product – but is personal preference.  Because of this I find that on my darker skin if I put too much product, I may be blending it out for quite a while.  So a little goes a long way and I slowly build to the consistency and vibrancy I would like.  Also, this product can settle into fine lines and winkles, so I definitely suggest using the product moderately and building up to product so avoid creasing.

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit

The Billion Dollar Brows Smudge brush is a well made, flat, synthetic brush that you can use to apply or blend out your highlighter duo.  I like to apply the highlighter duo with the pencil and then take the smudge brush to blend it all out. This brush is soft, but still dense enough to get the job done.  It’s well made and packed nicely into the ferrule giving you lots of control over what you are blending and applying.

Last but not lease is the Pencil Sharpener.  This sharpener is the perfect size to sharpen your Duo Highlighter, renewing the product of the pencil.  It’s easy to use and sharpens nicely and precisely.

When it comes to brows, I really like the time I spend on them to be quick and effortless.  The Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit offers all the products you need to create quick, statement brows with little to no effort.  It’s fast, easy to use and your brows will pretty much stay in place till you take them off.  I really appreciate how well these work and I know it will be a part of my makeup arsenal for years to come.
