Brows have become increasingly important over the past few years and now that big brows are back on trend I have been scouring the market to find my perfect product.  

In this post I am sharing with you my thoughts on three drugstore brow products that I am currently trying. For reference, my go-to brow routine is a two-step process that uses high end products you can read more about it here. But I always like to give the drugstore a try that way repurchasing products isn't as painful for my wallet. I did find a few good products in this post here but I still think I can find something more comparable to high end. So let's give these three products a shot. 

Sigma "Medium" Brow Powder ($14)
This little compact includes a duo of brow powders so that you can mix and match depending on how intense you want the look. This is definitely something important to me because as a blonde, the colour you want your brows is really dependent on how much regrowth you have or if you have just gotten your hair done etc. I enjoy that they are completely matte and think it's interesting how the two shades are side-by-side blended into one pan rather than separated. You can purchase this product here.

L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit "Medium to Dark" ($24.95)
This is another duo product but taken to the next level compared to the Sigma one because this includes both a powder and a wax product. Additional features are also mini tweezers and a spoolie so it's like an all in one kit for your brow needs. This particular shade is slightly too dark for me which is unfortunate but I do love the way the product works so I think I will go out and buy a lighter set. You can purchase this product here.

Sigma "Dressed Up" Brow Pencil ($9)
You really can't beat the simplicity of a basic brow pencil. This particular product is created for a natural look where the subtle finish fills in brows for a fuller look. It is definitely a great go-to product for daily use because it is so simple, quick and easy to fill in your brows with this rather than fumbling around with a kit. You can purchase this product here.

The Verdict
Brow powders are fantastic for getting a very controlled and fluffy look to the brows and can definitely be taken to the next level when a wax is involved like that in the L'Oreal Brow Artist. The kits so require a bit of additional time and effort to work with though so I would recommend the pencil for daily use if you usually don't spend too much time on your makeup and the kits for special occasions when you have a bit more time. 

Thanks for reading!
