Brows, Brows, and More Brows

This post was sponsored by Billion Dollar Brows but all opinions are my own.

I don't consider myself a true trendy person. There are always some trends in the beauty and fashion world that I don't like and won't jump on. My mom has always told me "but it's in style" when showing me a new style jacket or jean and I just don't buy it.

I'm so original ;)

But in reality, I do like to follow certain trends and one of my favorite trends of lately (the past year or so) has been big, bold brows.

I'm Italian and graced with thick and unruly hair...and that includes my eyebrows. Since I was 12 years old, I've gotten my eyebrows waxed and threaded to keep them in shape. I never have them too thin but it's refreshing to see big eyebrows in style.

I've been experimenting with doing my brows whenever I do my makeup and it really does help me feel and look more put together.

When doing your brows, you always need the right tools and I've been on the hunt for the perfect brow pencil, highlight and gel and everything in between.

When I got the chance to review the "Billion Dollar Brows Best Seller Kit", I was so excited because it was everything you need right in one, easy set.


The set comes with four products; BDB Universal Brow Pencil, that claims it can work for the lightest or darkest hair, BDB Brow Gel, a highlight and concealer duo pencil, and a smudge brush. 


I received the kit a few weeks ago but wanted to give myself time to actually use the products and give a good review.


Well, I have to say this stuff is awesome.

-The Universal Brow Pencil is a light brown shade but you can press harder to create a more dramatic color. The pencil is good; it's a little loose in the packaging so its hard to get a grip but I've been hunting for a good brow pencil and this is really good. The best thing is that there is a spoolie brush on the other end of the pencil which makes combing and taming my brows really easy.


The brow pencil allows you to fill in your brows and create whatever kind of look you want, whether it's really bold or just a simple look.

-The brow gel I just began using and the brush is a little odd to work with but after a few tries it should be fine. It's not too thick or too thin, it's a pretty good consistency and it's one of the few brow gels that really keeps everything in place.

-I haven't used the smudge brush yet but I'm excited to use it in different ways. It's a really soft, flat top brush that is supposed to be used to blend the brow pencil. It can be used to apply eyeliner and eyeshadow and I'm super excited to try it out.

Highlight on top; concealer on bottom
-The concealer/highlight duo pencil is also something I just started using. I haven't tried the concealer yet but the highlight end of the pencil....OHMYGOD. I've used a few brow highlights in my day but this, this is the creamiest, lightest highlighter. It applies like a dream and you only need a little bit to make your brow bone sparkle. It's not shimmery but just light enough to give you extra spunk.

I really really love this kit. It gives you the ability to perfect your brows and give you the exact look you want. It retails for $34.99 at Khol's. 

What are your "go to" brow tools? Tell me in the comments :)
