Reader Review: MAC Brow Set

The other day, Fab came over and started waving a tube of brow gel in my face. "Have you tried this?" she asked. "It is the best." Since I hadn't, I asked her if she'd share a review with you. Since she's a sweetie, she agreed to. So, take it away, Fab:

"My eyebrow prayers have been answered. Here's how. . .

"I never had a lot of brow to begin with. I covet the thick, dramatic brows of Jennifer Connelly, Angie Harmon and, of course, Audrey Hepburn. Like all adolescent girls, I took a tweezer to my brows at a too-early age. I quickly learned that thin brows didn't work for my face, and now I am in a happy brow place, sort of.

"My brows don't have natural lushness and for photo ops and evening I use a kit to plump them up. But for everyday, I let them be their usual uninteresting selves. And so, I found M·A·C Brow Set ($13.50) and I've had fiercer brows ever since. The awesome thing is it doubles as a brow gel so I don't have to use a separate product for that. I just lightly glide it on with its round mascara brush and Q-Tip away any unnecessary brow gel. It comes in six colors; I use Beguile (pictured) for my dark brown brows. Great price, great brows."

I should add that Fab really does have great brows, and from looking at them, I never would have guessed that she uses any product at all. Fab tested, Bella approved.

I use Benefit's SpeedBrow every day. It's very similar. Keeps things neat and darkens my mousy brows to match my (dyed) hair. Favorite product, hands down.

The MAC brow set really does make your brows thicker. Which is good if you get a little pluck happy. I use the clear brow set most of the time, which basically keeps them in line. The colors are nice when you're in between brow colorings too. Before I discovered brow set, I had been known to use a little hairspray. I like this much better.

i really want to try this. i heard that using it in golden is really gorgeous on anyone because it's a gold-flecked cream. i use sonia kashuk brow pomade on mine and it's natural-looking... i get compliments on my brows all the time!

I could use this. I used to use a brow tint by Maybelline however it would make my brows feel crunchy (does that make sense?) Like I had put hairspray on them. My brows need a tint and MAC is a good brand.

I need to get this, asap. I have Jenn C. brows as it is, but I think this would do great with making them look darker and brushed.

My girlfriends told me that I need to use some additional color on my brows. I already use a clear gel to keep them shaped, so I think I'll try this. ...would love to see a before & after pic.

Other than a clear grooming gel, I generally don't use brow products very often...unless I overpluck a bit. I'm sure this MAC set is nice though...most of their products are! The pencil I have is a Clinique one.

I'd love to see how Fab's turned out. Mine are thin and look so much better thicker, especially when I do a smokey eye. I do use BE's brow powder and Amazing Cosmetics Brow Gel right now but I'm always interested in new products when my current stuff runs out! :)

I use Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany to fill my brows in - I don't really use a separate brow product, but I'll keep this in mind!

Benefit makes a really good brow gel. I have very light eyebrows so it helps define them a little for the day. At night time I use a Sonia Kashuk eyebrow pencil, but I'm looking for a different brand- any thoughts?

I use Laura Mercier brow pencils and Paula Dorf brow gel. I would be freaked to use a colored brow gel, but love MAC, so when I run out of these products that I love, I might give it a try!

good shaped brows do wonders for your face. When I get mine done I really notice a difference. I will keep this product in mind.

Before and after photo please!! I'm in the same boat too but since I have black eyebrows, filling in my eyebrows creates a look that is too strong sometimes.
