Overgrown or Overplucked? 21 Products From Sephora to Get Your Brows Back on Track
If your eyebrows have seen better days (like the days when they could be dealt with by professionals), you've likely reached the point of social distancing where you are strongly considering taking things into your own hands. Even if you don't want to try DIY threading or at-home waxing, picking up a new pencil, gel, or powder can help add shape and color to your brows, and tweezers or scissors can give them a quick clean-up, too.
When you're ready to make tackling and taming your eyebrows your next staying-home project, we've picked out 21 brow products from Sephora that have racked up thousands of five-star ratings from other shoppers. Check out these vetted Sephora choices ahead.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Better Together Brow Kit
By picking up this limited-edition Anastasia Beverly Hills Better Together Brow Kit ($24), you get two of the brand's bestselling products packed together: a full-size Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz ($23) pencil — with more than 10,000 five-star reviews — helps to outline and fill brows, and a mini, clear Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel ($9-$22) sets the look all day long.
KVD Vegan Beauty 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade
For something with color and hold, this top-rated KVD Vegan Beauty 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade ($10-$20) offers highly saturated hues ranging from "natural" hair shades to bold cherry red, emerald green, and electric blue, too. [This equally popular KVD Vegan Beauty #70 Pomade Brow Brush ($18) gets the job done, no matter the color you choose.]
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
All the colors of this popular Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel ($14-$38) feature tiny microfibers to boost volume while also taming and tinting brows at the same time.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse
This top-rated Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse ($29) reduces oil around the hair follicle so skin is nourished and balanced, and then patchy spots are smoothly filled in with lightweight color.
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Micro
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Micro ($24) has a tiny oval tip that mimics the look of a microbladed brow by adding superfine, hair-like lines — and 97 percent of the Sephora shoppers who reviewed this product would recommend it to others for doing just that.
Grande Cosmetics GrandeBrow Brow Enhancing Serum
If you're looking to treat the root(s) of your patchy brows, this Grande Cosmetics GrandeBrow Brow Enhancing Serum ($36-$70) boasts vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids to help your hair look fuller in spots where it's naturally thinning or a little overplucked.
Josie Maran The Good Brow
The argan- and coconut-oil-packed Josie Maran The Good Brow ($24) not only shapes and fills brows (with the pigmented end), but it also offers a Rosé highlighter side to brighten the area right under your brows (and inner corners of your eyes), too.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo
Each Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo ($23) compact comes with two colors so you can get a natural, buildable blend as needed — and it's earned a 4.7 rating from Sephora shoppers. (It's easy to apply with this dual-sided flat brush/spoolie Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #7B ($18) that also earns top marks.)
Sephora Collection Eyebrow Touch Up Razor Set
Use this top-rated Sephora Collection Eyebrow Touch Up Razor Set ($15) to trim brows with a tiny blade — and the cap includes a bonus comb and brush to get things in order afterward as well.
Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape and Define
With more than 3,000 five-star reviews, this waterproof Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape and Define ($14-$24) comes in 12 different shades so you can get a close color match to fill in sparse spots and then use the other end to blend it all in so brows look more defined (yet still natural).
Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist Shadow, Liner, Brow
This versatile Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist Shadow, Liner, Brow ($25) can add necessary color to fill in brows, but it also lines and shades lids because it's got a detachable sharpener and built-in sponge to get all that done.
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows Eyebrow Gel
A little goes a long way with this volumizing Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows Eyebrow Gel ($23), plus there's nourishing vitamin E and strengthening castor oil inside to treat hair well, too.
Viseart Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette
Sure, this Viseart Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette ($64, originally $80) has nine matte eyeshadows inside, but there are also three different wax-based colors to fill in light, medium, and dark brows (or any shade in between).
Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil
The top-rated, retractable Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil ($29) lets you fill in brows lightly or with a bolder effect — and there are six color choices, including a universal taupe shade, to work on a range of hair colors and skin tones.
