While scrolling through facebook you sometimes come across demo videos hailing a new wonder product that will solve all your issues. So when I saw a video of Wunderbrows semi permanent brow make up, I didn't pay any particular attention, passing it off as just another one of those fad products that aren't any good. That was until I tried it and I have to admit I was actually really impressed.
Available in 4 different shades from Brown/black, Brunette, Blonde and Auburn. it comes in a wand style bottle with a brush style applicator and a separate spoolie. I found the brush to be slightly too big ,I like a small thin brush to get thin hair like strokes, so I just use one of my angled brushes to apply it. The formula is actually really easy to work with ,especially when on a smaller brush and it doesn't take long to dry. I use my little brush to apply it then use the spoolie wand to disperse the product through the hairs.
Traditional brow pencils, pomades and powders can be hard to apply, have multiple steps, can look unnatural and don’t stay in place or last throughout the day. Some women are so desperate for brows they go to the extreme of “eyebrow tattooing”. This process lasts but often looks unnatural, is painful and expensive.
Wunderbrow is a new one-step solution which allows women to easily fill, define and shape their brows with natural looking color that lasts for days.
Wunderbrow gives the convenience of the perfect brow, at home, and in one easy step.
Wunderbrow claim it is:
Long lasting - stays on until you decide to take it off.
Transfer-Proof - will not transfer onto your clothes.
Budge-Proof - will not smudge if you rub.
Water-Proof - shower, swim, workout, Wunderbrow stays put.
Hair Fibers - fill in sparse areas for a natural look.
After vigorous testing ,although I don't agree with all the claims, it does tick most of the boxes! The only real thing I disagree with is how long lasting it is. It didn't last for days on me. It lasted the whole day without budging even lasting a shower without slipping, which in my opinion is brilliant,but it didn't last for days. They advise you to use an oil free cleanser when cleaning your face to keep your brows intact and then an oil based cleanser to remove them.
I did find they faded even after use with the water based cleanser but I did rub them quite aggressively. The next day after application my brow hairs were still slightly tinted and did look fuller but the formula had all disappeared on the sparser areas which I had filled in. So they did need to be lightly touched up to get my ideal brow. Yet if you have naturally fuller brows, I'm sure you wouldn't need to reapply the second day as they would still be tinted.
All in all I'm rather impressed and think the Wunderbrow does rival my much loved Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade although I will be keeping both lol. The fact they have little hair fibres as well is what set it apart for me personally, so it does give a much more natural looking finish. Where as you need to be much more skilled and have a little more time to get the same effect with a pomade.
You can get the Wunderbrow at from Boots here or from the site here.
