Product Review: Glossier Boy Brow

I am low-maintenance when it comes to my brows. I was blessed with good genes when it comes to excess body hair and therefore I've never plucked, tweezed, or did anything to my brows in my life. In fact, all of my photos until the last two months feature me sans brow makeup. 
As bold brows are becoming more and more of a trendy makeup look, I wanted to try upping my brow game. I tried to use a pencil but as a brow makeup newbie I had no idea what I was doing and I ended up looking like I had Sharpied my brows in. Not attractive. 
I stumbled upon Glossier's Boy Brow in my quest to find the perfect brow product for someone like myself. They promised easy application and a natural-looking finish which are two things I absolutely wanted.


Packaging: The packaging of this product is very simple and clean. I happen to like the minimalist design and the small size. In terms of the brow wand itself, It's incredibly easy to use which is perfect for a brow newbie like me! It's funny because the wand does a great job of picking up exactly the right amount of product without me having to scrape excess off the side of the tube. It's also small so it's great for getting all the small details of my brow hairs. 5/5

Formula: Consider me a Boy Brow convert because I was sold! I was initially scared of the dark black brow shade. Lots of makeup Youtube videos have told me that black haired girls should get a softer brown color for their brows but Glossier's site told me I should stick with their black. I was incredibly pleased to see upon my very first application Boy Brow made my brow hairs look slightly thicker in a very natural way. I'm actually surprised (and not quite sure how) I've managed to not mess it up! The product also lasts all work day and wipes off with my waterproof makeup remover without much fuss. It's SO amazing! 5/5


Price: I don't have any other brow products to compare the price point of Boy Brow to. I got a free sample of a few other high end brow products that haven't worked nearly as well though. I loved the way it worked but like I said, the packaging is quite small and therefore not a lot of product. I paid $16 for it and it seems to be a bit on the high side of affordable. Still, this is a great product to have in your makeup stash. 4/5

Have you tried Glossier's Boy Brow? How did you like it?

  2. Oh I've never tried anything like this - I'm a bare-brow person, I barely have time to put on BB cream in the morning anyway, ha!

    But I love the side by side pictures for this, can really see the difference! :) Thanks for sharing :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend! :)

  3. It looks like Boy Brow looks perfect for you! In fact, your brows are not rare, while well shaped and thin haired. In this case a brow mascara is the perfect solution. My eyebrows on the other hand are rare, so I need a pencil to fill them in. As for the price, you might want to try Brow Drama by Maybelline. I wish you a great week ahead dear!

  9. I've always wanted to try Glossier products! I like a slightly more refined line, so I wonder if I would like this. I currently use Anastasia brow liner.
