Honestly, my biggest brow struggle is finding a product that’s dark enough to look natural, but not looking like I used a black eyeliner instead (I’m not going to say I didn’t try this once…). When I learned about the shade MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow 40 Brown Black*, which is a cult favourite product in a super dark shade, I was instantly interested. Throw in a MAKE UP FOR EVER 270 Angled Eyebrow Brush* and we have a match made in eyebrow Heaven.
I’m still a bit of a brow novice, but the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow 40 Brown Black is very different than the previous pencil or wand formulas I’ve tried, and instead comes in a small squeeze tube. It’s a very small package but you need an incredibly tiny amount, I use about the amount in the swatch above for one of my brows. It’s an extremely pigmented gel formula, that I apply to my hand and then use the MAKE UP FOR EVER 270 Angled Eyebrow Brush to apply.
I adored the last MUFE brush I tried (review here) and it’s still an easy favourite in my collection so I had high hopes for what the MAKE UP FOR EVER 270 Angled Eyebrow Brush would do. They definitely met it! This is a small, stiff, angled brush that’s great to use for applying tiny strokes of product almost mimicking hair. It’s smaller than the previous eyebrow I’d and I prefer it because I find it gives me excellent control, which is also important when using such a pigmented and long-lasting product.
The end result of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow 40 Brown Black and 270 Angled Eyebrow Brush combo is a natural but define brow with a shade that looks perfect for my colouring. Not only that, but this is a very long-lasting, waterproof formula that looks perfect all day! When you use this product, you can definitely do your brows and then forget about them, which is exactly how I like makeup!
I thought it would be a lot more difficult to use the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow 40 Brown Black and 270 Angled Eyebrow Brush format rather than a pencil, but it honestly took about same amount of time, maybe five minutes to do my brows. I’m sure this small package is going to last me forever, and I’ll be happy if it does because it is an excellent option for brows, and if you can find a shade that works for you I highly recommend it.
