Check out the tapered tip at the end of the brush on Dior’s new Diorshow Brow Styler Gel ($29). I’ve never seen a brow gel like this before.
The whole design is very futuristic. It has a click brush applicator, and when you twist the bottom of the pen, the brow gel comes out from the sides. Then you just run the brush through your brows to shape, tame and polish them.
It’s so very Bladerunner! Of course, in the not-too-distant future when we have robots for mundane tasks like filling in our brows, things like this will be rendered irrelevant…so we must get our brow thrills while we can. 🙂
So I was thrilled to try this doohickey on Raul (also known as “the bald spot in my left brow”).
Buuut, I think that maybe my brow gel bar is set way too high, or I’m getting to that point where I need extra-strength, extra-intense brow gel for drag queens, because this didn’t really do much for me… I tried the darkest shade, #003 Brown (it’s also available in Transparent #001 and Blonde #002), and my brows didn’t really look much darker or less unruly.
They looked glossy and felt soft, which was cool, but the main reason I reach for brow gels is to, ya know, transform the tumbleweed-covered wasteland happening above my eyes into a Cara Delevingne brow situation.
And that didn’t happen.
Diorshow Brow Styler Gel might be better for lords and ladies with a bushy brow situation (lucky you!) to highlight what they already have. If you’re interested, it’s available now online and at Dior counters.
AVAILABILITY: New in the permanent line and available now in three shades online and at Dior counters
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: C (doesn’t really do much for me; probably better if you have bushier brows)
