Smashbox Brow Tech To Go

It seems like I have been searching for the perfect Eyebrow product for an eternity. My friend had been singing the praises of Smashboxes new Brow Tech To Go, I thought why not give it a go myself. I feel its priced so well for £19.00 considering you get 2 products in one. One end there is a clear brow gel and the other end is a retractable cream pencil product.




The shape of the pencil is quite unique, it reminds me of the Tom Ford one. The nib is quite big, and shaped in a triangle. It has taken some getting used to, to achieve a good symmetrical shape but one you get your flow with it, its soooo easy to use. Another feature I love is the pencil is retractable, unlike others I have used (Mac I am looking at you) so there is no risk of wastage or losing product through breakage. Due to the shape of the nib it keeps the product strong, from my experience the finer nibs break so easily, which makes them extremely expensive.




The clear brow gel wand is the perfect shape for me, its teeny tiny, this makes it so easy to use. I have used larger varieties before that have smudged my eye make up. This will not happen with this little beauty, it is great to work with.


The colour is perfect for me, I am fair skinned with blond hair. I have really struggled over the years to find the correct shade, previously I have experienced products to be too red, green or even muddy. I can honestly say this has been one of the best colour matches I have ever tried. If I remember correctly there was another shade to select, one for brunettes.


 
 
I would love to hear what eye brow products you are currently using, I watched a you tube video recently and the girl had brought 8 different brands to try. All high end may I add!! Wow, now that is excessive even for me.
 
I purchased my Smashbox Brow Tech To Go from Boots, a lovely girl called Laura served me. She was super sweet, explaining the best way to apply. Laura provided me with a few samples to try of their primers and BB cream. As I get around to trying them I will report back.
