I have fairly thin brow-hair, but they are pretty lengthy and this poses as a real challenge when I am doing my makeup. When I am done with all the aspects, it’s only the brows that look out of place. I have tried clear brow gel, brow wax and brow powder to keep it looking nice, but somehow it doesn’t look perfect to me. I discovered this brow setting product from MAC during one of my aimless ramblings in the store and I am glad the SA showed me what I was missing in my life.
A brush-on gel that grooms and defines brows into shape, naturally shading to create subtle or dramatic looks. The non-greasy formula sets hairs softly, providing a healthy-looking sheen in six new hues to match any hair color, from deep ebony to shimmering soft gold-brown.
How to Use:
Lightly brush on the direction of brow hairs and let it set for a few seconds.
Price and Quantity:
US $17 for 5 g/0.17 fl oz.
My Experience with MAC Bold Brunette Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:
As I mentioned earlier, I always had an issue taming my brows and make them look fuller without making them look artificial. The other brow products that I have used till now are either ineffective or temporarily effective. For example, when I used the clear brow mascara it didn’t add any volume, but made the brows a bit sticky (not waterproof) and also disappeared within a few hours. Then, came the brow wax. Though, it was better than the clear mascara as it did fill in the brows, it sort of melted away in summer heat or even because of body temperature. I have used brow powders as well as matching matte eyeshadows on my brows (which were better than the former ones), but not being waterproof was thier major con.
I went to the MAC store looking out for some newly released products when this SA introduced me to MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set. She explained to me and even applied it on my brows to have a real feel of the product. Honestly, I liked how it kept my brows in the place and added the volume I wanted. I had a stroll in the mall for a few hours and made up my mind to buy this.
Packaging: The packaging is plain and simple, just like a mascara. But, the brush is different from a mascara brush. The brush is smaller and stiffer than a mascara one and finely coats the brow hair with the brow setting liquid. The color of the shade is the color of the bottle and this makes it easy to identify in a stash.
Pigmentation and Staying Power: The brow gel is perfectly pigmented; neither too harsh nor too light, but just right. There are 6 shades to choose from and I chose ‘Bold Brunette’. The staying power is very impressive. I mean, it lasts till I remove it with a makeup remover and since it’s waterproof, I don’t need to worry about anything. 😀
The best way to use it is by brushing the eyebrow hair in the direction of growth and coating the hair in the process. The product stays until it is removed with a makeup remover at the end of the day. There are six shades in total to choose from and I somehow feel that ‘Quite Brunette’ would have been much better on my skin color, but I am fine with this one as well. This has no smell whatsoever and has not caused any kind of irritation on my already weird allergic skin.
Pros of MAC Bold Brunette Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

Cons of MAC Bold Brunette Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:
