Adore or Ignore: Milani Brow Shaping Clear Wax

Like many makeup lovers, I am always on the quest for perfect, or at least respectable-looking, eyebrows. I typically use some sort of product to fill in my brows, be it a pomade or pencil, and that alone makes a huge difference; however, sometimes I just need a little somethin' somethin' to rein in those unruly hairs that refuse to cooperate. Now, I've tried a few different brow gels, but they just didn't do it for me. Brow gel is not all that different from hair gel, and I don't know about you, but I don't like to feel like I slathered Dep all over my eyebrows. Also, brow gel has been known to flake off on occasion, especially if you go a little overboard applying the stuff; I'm sorry to say this, but eyebrows that appear to have dandruff does not look good on ANYBODY. So, what's a girl to do when her eyebrows won't lay flat and brow gel is not the right solution? 

Two words: Brow. Wax. 

Milani Brow Shaping Clear Wax, $4.49
After watching a few reviews on YouTube, I knew I had to give the Milani Brow Shaping Clear Wax a try, and I am ever-so-happy that I did! This stuff is amazing! You can use it by itself, or along with other brow products. The wax goes hand in hand with brow powder because it gives the powder something to stick to, however I have found that the wax works great with my Tarte Brow Mousse as well as my Anastasia Brow Wiz! And it's oh-so-easy to use - just use short strokes to apply it in the direction of the hair growth. You can use it all over the brow, or just on the areas that need taming. From my experience, it works pretty much the same whether I apply it prior to using a colored brow product or after, though I tend to use it after filling in my brows to lock-in the color. This has become an absolute must-have in my makeup collection, and at less than $5 a pop it seriously cannot be beat!

You can purchase the Milani Brow Shaping Clear Wax at CVS and Walgreens Pharmacies, as well as the Milani website.

Needless to say, this is something I completely  Adore!
