MAC Brow Set



MAC Brow Set in Clear: £12.50*

I received this in my goody bag at London Fashion Week last month and didn't really think much of it at first. Just like a regular clear mascara, right? In the past I've used similar products, always buying the cheapest option possible because they're 'invisible anyway'. Sometimes I'd notice white flaky bits through my brows during the day, my brows would look too hard and in the end I just gave up on it, and in time forgot about these kinds of products.

The main problem I have with my eyebrows is that one is a lot more angular and squared off than the other- which is a lot softer and more rounded where the arch is. In order to make them more even I use a mix of a pen and a tiny helping of powder. I also have quite long brow hairs though, so they can be prone to moving and looking weird (stay with me here!). Enter MAC Brow Set. It brushes onto the brows like with any old clear mascara, but doesn't flake or stiffen the appearance of the brows. My eyebrows stay put and look just how they did when I put my makeup on which can only be a good thing.

Brow Set is also available in a range of tinted shades, which I didn't know about and I really want to try one now! These gels can also be used on lashes (reminds me of school days!) and any facial hair should you need it in those areas.

Sure there are cheaper alternatives, but I've stumbled across this one, and when you break it down to price per use it amounts to mere pennies so I'll definitely be looking to repurchase this. What do you think? Do you set your brows?

  3. This sounds really great, my eyebrows can start to look messy throughout the day. I like that you didn't find it to flake or harden.

  9. This sounds great, I use MUA clear mascara when I feel the need for an extra fix and it works really well, no flakes and not too crunchy-feeling. I'd like to try the Mac one but just wouldn't use it enough to justify getting it.

  12. I used MAC Brow Set religiously for 2 years, it's such a great product! I'm road testing the Illamasqua one at the moment, and so far I'm preferring it to the MAC one. I think once you've found a good one, they're defintely worth the money over time - like you said, it works out at pennies per use.

  13. i have just come to end of my mac brow set- its now a yucky brown mess! ive repurchased a cheaper alternative (elf) which i havent yet used, though cant justify spending £12 on essentially a clear mascara when there are cheaper ones on the market!

  21. When I'm next in need of an eyebrow gel, I'm going to buy this. It sounds great! I always use an eyebrow gel just in case my eyebrows go out of control, so this is handy. The price is reasonable too :)

  24. I personally always have to set my eyebrows because they get majorly unruly if I don't. It's almost as if they have a mind of their own.

  27. I'll def have to give this a try... I actually stroke my eyebrows (weird habit!!) and they're dreadful eyebrows at that and like you use a cheap clear mascara to tame them - maybe this will do the trick for me!

  29. I'm always disappointed when it comes to brow setters, they just don't seem to look natural when I use them but this one sounds okay, I might give it a go!

  31. I swear to god were brow sisters, my eyebrows are the same, I usually don't set them but I trim the hair so there short and not so out of control

  32. I tend to use hair spray and a spoolie on my brows and it works great xx

    ReplyDelete
  33. Brow gel is a must have in my makeup bag! I do need a new one actually, I may give this a try. The only thing that bugs me about the clear gels are that when you have used them for a while they turn discoloured from all the eyebrow product used x

  34. i might try the elf one first to see if i get on with products like eyebrow gels as i've never tried one xx
