New Year means new brows, right? Well for me personally it means trying to improve and polish my brows. For the most part, I consider myself to be pretty lucky when it comes my eyebrows because they are fairly thick and full.
Though unfortunately like many, during my early tween years I started threading them to fairly thin bars with high arches and they never quite grew back the same. I now have some small gaps that are taking ages to grow. I’ve been letting it grow for a good year without any professional cleanup but the process is excruciatingly slow.
So lo and behold came my saviours that I swear by, Dior cult favourite, the Diorshow Brow Styler, and new in from their Fall 2016 collection, the DiorShow Brow Chalk.
The Diorshow Brow Styler** (CAD $29) in 01 Universal Brown I have been using over the past couple of years mostly on “nice” occasions to sort of fill in my brows a little but it’s now an essential part to my routine and I’d like to think I know how to use it better now.
What I love about it is that not only is it a universal shade but it is so easy to use. It is retractable and includes a spooly brush on the other side so it’s perfect for on the go for a quick touch up. And it’s small thin tip is perfect for outlining and filling in with precision. I usually use it to outline and fill in my brow for a full but subtle natural brow. When I want to go slightly bolder and darker, I use it in junction with the Dior Chalk and it really does wonders.
The Dior Brow Chalk (CAD $40) was released as part of the Fall 2016 Skyline collection and it’s a miracle worker. I found that its design is quite different from other brow products so it was really cool to try. It is extremely creamy, soft and smooth but even more amazing it is waterproof! The flat tip is perfect for filling in brows quickly but makes it slightly challenging for precision and control. As such, I tend to not use it for outlining but mostly for filling.
Here are some swatches of both products:
Overall, I still need to improve my skills with brow products but Dior does make it really easy to use even for a novice like myself. Their products are top quality and offer what is promised. I definitely recommend it to anyone.
Dior products are available at all official Dior Retailers such as the Bay and Sephora Canada.
