MeMeMe's take on Brow Gel

MeMeMe's latest take on Brow Gels is Arch Angel. Now being a browsessed (no its not a word!) person myself, anything related to brows, especially in the drug store part of the world gets me really excited. 

We all know where we can get expensive and good quality brow products but isn't it great when a high street brand takes so much time and effort to replicate something just as good in quality like its expensive counterparts but with a lower price tag. 

I don't know about you, but I quite like the challenge of discovering cheaper dupes. You can call it a hobby even.

The Arch Angel just like the MAC, Bobbi Brown and Benefit Brow Gels out there, comes with a gel that tints your brows. This one also comes with a highlighter to enhance the brow bone area. 

The consistency of the brow gel is quite dry and mousse like which is great as that way its easy to coat the brows with something of a drier consistency than the opposite.

It immediately adds a punch of colour, fills in any sparse areas and gives the brows more texture. It also sets them in place, making them slightly crisp, so they stay in place the entire day.

The product dries in a few seconds you don't have to worry about smearing or smudging of any sort. It also lasts for an entire day and even lasted me in the shower which is surprisingly long wearing from a product as such.

The highlighter is a pinky-sliver illuminating liquid and can easily be blended on the brow bone to accentuate the arch and make the area appear higher, brighter and neater.

It does not contain over-the-top shimmer for any of you who cringe at the thought of shimmering silver highlighter on the brow bone.

My brows are not in the prettiest of shapes at the moment so apologies for that but just to show how the product quickly tints the brows and makes them appear more groomed in a few seconds.

Opt for Brow Gels over Brow Pencils and Powders if

- You are not very good at or are hesitant of sketching your brows and are frequently haunted by a scousebrow
- You always do your brows in a hurry (think nanoseconds) 
- You have naturally very fine, thin or sparse brows and want more texture to them

Although I quite like this, I still primarily use something traditional like the Sleek Brow Kit which comes with a wax and a powder, as the entire regime of sketching the brows with a brush is very satisfactory and feminine in my opinion. 

Launching in the beginning of April, this will be available for £8.50 from Superdrug and MeMeMe website

It's only recently that I've become obsessed with my brows. I wonder if this comes in any darker shades?
