Say hello to my holy-grail eyebrow product, the Too Faced Bulletproof Brows in the shade Universal Brunette. I’m tellin’ you guys, this is a perfect shade for me. My eyebrows hairs are black, but my hair is slightly lighter than black, and I was trying everything and then some to get a perfect color match. When you’re searching for a brow color, you want one shade lighter than your brow hairs. The problem for me though was that every brown color I attempted was too warm of a color. With Universal Brunette, it’s a beautiful cool-toned brown shade, which ended up matching perfectly for me.
The packaging is simple but smart, and comes encased in a small plastic compact. Too Faced made sure to be careful since the formula is a pomade/gel consistency, and added an extra lid directly over the product, underneath the compact’s first lid (which does come with a handy-dandy mirror, if you’re needing this on the go). This way the product won’t dry up- smart thinking! PLUS, they also included a brush/spooley combo, which is exactly what I needed. I didn’t have one in my brush collection, as I was using a brow pencil up until this point. The quality of the bristles are very soft and smooth, and truly are a pleasure to feel against your skin as you fill in your brows. Plus, it’s more on the narrow side, which is perfect for sculpting a defined angular tail, if that’s your thing ^_^. I also feel like I don’t have to be too careful when I apply this when it comes to opacity- it’s not too dark and intense, and comes out rather natural looking. I can imagine building it up to be slightly dark, but I never feel like I have “painted eyebrows” on once I’m done with my brow routine.
My only “gripe” with this is the pricing- for the product and the brush, it comes to $30. I’m fine with that at the beginning, but what if you want another? Well, Too Faced doesn’t sell the pomade separately, so you’re going to have to deal with getting both products again if you plan on repurchasing. Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade retails at $18, and I wish Too Faced would consider selling the pomade alone for those of us who have fallen in love. Another point worth mentioning- the Bulletproof Brows only comes in 2 colors at the moment: Universal Taupe and Universal Brunette. I wonder if this really is enough variety for everyone?
