I’m very excited to introduce you to some fantastic new releases from YSL Beauty, they have added four new products to their brow range and created the YSL Brow Wardrobe. Everyone has their individual way of filling in their brows whether you prefer a simple look or a very bold brow I think you will find at least one product from the YSL brow range that you will love.
This comes in that class signature gold YSL packaging which looks and feels luxurious and it has a very handy mirror so it’s a fantastic palette to take with you in your makeup bag. It also comes with just the cutest mini YSL tweezers and a brow brush which despite their teeny tiny size work very well to tidy up any stray brow hairs.
So cuteness aside you also get 3 powder shades which are nicely pigmented and blend beautifully. You can use them individually or mix them together to create your perfect brow shade. The powders are easy to blend and work with and have great staying power. For me powder gives you the option to be quite precise and also have the flexibility to create a soft look or build it up for a more bold brow. This is a beautiful product and a stand out from this collection.
This dual ended precision brow pencil comes in four shades & has a fab brow spoolie on one end and a pencil on the other. I found the pencil quite hard but the colour worked well and looked natural. I would say that a pencil allows you to get very precise strokes and if you wanted to just fill in your brows quickly with minimal fuss then a pencil is ideal & also great to travel with. Out of the four products this is the one I use the least but that is because I’m so used to using a powder that I find using a pencil quite awkward.
I have never tried a brow product like this before, it looks like a chunky marker pen with a angled felt tip style nib. After a few attempts I found this worked best for me for filling in a few sparse patches and also to outline the shape of my brows. It isn’t too pigmented which means you can achieve a natural look though your brow but a big plus point for me is, once you apply this there is no budging it (YSL promise 12 hour wear). Initially I thought the large nib would be quite hard to use but after a few goes I’m pleased to report I’ve become a dab hand and I’m able to get quite a nice sharp, defined look. I almost wrote this product off but I am converted to the Brow Marker & recommend giving it a go.
The only downside is this Couture Brow Marker only comes in two shades, light brown & dark brown and the lightest shade is not very light at all.
Out of the four products this tinted brow mascara is without a doubt the product I’ve used the most. This adds a nice amount of colour and texture to your brows and I also like that you can use it alone for an effortless look or on top of your powder to set your brows and add a little more colour. The brush is a fantastic size and shape, it allows you to put just the right amount of product through your bows without getting it everywhere. It’s gel consistency doesn’t give you the dreaded crispy brow and it’s buildable formula means you can go as natural or dramatic as you like. It is a fantastic product to add to your collection.
I feel like brows products have had such a resurgence since Cara Delevingne reminded everyone full brows are OK and I’m totally cool with that because my brows are a little unruly and naturally super thick.
What brow product do you like to use the most? Also let me know if any of the new YSL Brow products have caught your eye.
