“You look different!” is what you’re probably going to get from every other person you meet after using L’Oreal Paris’ new Brow Artist Genius Kit. Except, why you look unlike yourself will remain a mystery to them—and it’ll be fun to see the perplexed reactions of your friends.
Bold brows have been a runway favourite for a few seasons now, but now you have tools to groom those arches. A sharp brow game can add definition to your face like no other feature.
This weekend when I stepped out for a sundowner, I kept my make-up minimal—peach pink lips, a hint of blush, a super thin cat-eye and a strong brow with the Genius Kit that helps you style, shape and get the curve right.
The kit comes divided in two sections—one with wax and the other filled with powder. First you apply the wax like a primer—delicately to shape up your brow and create the base for the colour. Then, you fill in the brows depending on the intensity you’re going for. Since my brows are thick in their natural form, I did one layer of upward strokes. Finally, using the spooley, I brushed them towards the temples to get a more arched curve.
Tip: While the product is lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy on your face, you can skip the wax if you’re going for subtly defined brows to avoid even slight stickiness.
Verdict: Apart from being a fun element to add to your make-up routine, the palette comes in a palm-sized kit, so you can easily pop one in your purse for touch-ups when you want to liven up a dull face. To add natural, daytime drama, skip the colour and simply shape the strands with wax, followed by brushing up with the spooley. Will I try it again? Sure, it’s one of those things that once discovered, you will go back to it from time to time, if not often, for a change in routine.
