Essence Blondy Brows Make Me Brow Brow Mascara Review+Swatches

Essence Make Me Brow
Essence's Make Me Brow Brow Mascara "has a tinted gel formula that contains tiny fibers to fill in gaps to create fuller, more defined eyebrows. The perfectly sized fiber brush shapes and tames to brow perfection." Available in two shades, Essence's Make Me Brow contains 3.8ml (.12 oz) and sells for a very affordable $2.99 ($5AUD). Essence is cruelty free. This brow gel was made in Italy.

Make Me Brow comes in a tiny color matched plastic tube with a black twist off cap. The product name is printed on the front of the tube in punchy white lettering; some product information and the shade name are printed on the opposite side of the tube.  Twisting off the cap, you'll discover a tiny, little spoolie that holds the perfect amount of product to coat one brow! So far, Make Me Brow's spoolie is the best I've come across - the spiraling bristles have great spacing, and its the ideal size for my naturally full brows - those with quite thin brows may still find it difficult to work with. All packaging is recyclable.

Essence Cosmetics' Make Me Brow Brow Mascara is often touted as a spot on dupe for Benefit's Gimme Brow Brow Gel, a product I covet but cannot currently afford, so I just had to try it. This tinted brow gel is enhanced with tiny, subtle fibers that mesh perfectly with your brow hairs - they apply evenly and lie flat against the your natural brow hairs, giving them a fuller appearance without clumping or causing annoying fiber fall out. On top of bulking up the brows by way of fiber extensions, Essence's Make Me Brow Brow Mascara also delivers sheer but impactful color - enough to be worn alone, but of course you can also use Make Me Brow to top off a powder or a pencil. This tinted brow gel provides a soft, flexible hold that'll keep your brows in place without a crunchy or stiff feel. A malleable hold doesn't equal poor longevity, at least not in the case of Make Me Brow! I've worn this brow mascara on some hot, humid, sweat inducing days without a problem, Make Me Brow always lasts all day without flaking or smudging! I'm really struggling to come up with any negative aspects here...Make Me Brow does smell slightly chemical-y in the tube, but you won't notice during application or wear. Aside from a potentially off putting scent, this budget friendly brow gel is flawless.

Essence offers their Make Me Brow Brow Mascara in two shades; Blondy Brows and Browny Brows. I opted for Blondy Brows, and I haven't been let down, this shade is appropriate for medium blond to light brow hair - plus it's surprisingly ginger friendly despite it's complete lack of warm red tones! Blondy Brows is a true neutral to slightly cool taupe shade that'll create a realistic brow across a wide range of hair colors. Browny Brows, on the other hand, is a much darker brown that'll work wonders for those with medium brown to black hair. My bro Carly has a review and swatch of Browny Brows that's worth checking out.

[Top: Before, Bottom: After]
I love Essence's Make Me Brow Brow Mascara, I rarely reach for anything else as of late! This is the first tinted brow gel that I've tried, and I doubt it'll be my last, but I can definitely see myself repurchasing it in the future. What I'd really like to do is pick up a tube of Benefit's Gimme Brow and do a comparison post. Anyway, if you're looking for an easy to use product that'll give you fuller looking, tame but soft brows you need to check out Make Me Brow! The price point is unbeatable, especially considering the quality!
