I realize beauty reviews are a bit formulaic for this blog, but I really wanted to discuss a new brow product I received as a sample from an online Sephora order. This item is Lashfood’s “Browfood Brow Enhancer.” It is a gel-based serum that claims to condition, define, groom, and hold eyebrows in place.
(Before I get into the review, I’d like to mention that I experimented with my photography lighting for these photos. If you think these look good, please let me know. I’d really appreciate the feedback.)
Like many gel eyebrow products, this “Browfood” is packaged in a mascara-style tube. I really this type of packaging for eyebrow products, because it makes them quick and easy to apply. With a single stroke, I am able to conceal most of the sparse areas in my brows. My one compliant about this particular would be the size of the spool brush. I find it to be a bit too long for my eyebrows.
The formula of this product dries very nicely. This was a huge relief to me, given of my biggest concerns with brow gels is that they won’t dry well. No one wants their brows to feel crunchy or sticky. (I’m cringing just at the thought.) Fortunately, this product doesn’t cause any texture-related concerns. After it’s applied, my eyebrows still feel natural. Nothing like dried glue or wax.
As far as durability goes, “Browfood” lasts a long time. It doesn’t smudge or fade throughout the day, which is the single most important quality of a brow product for me. In my mind, things like pigmentation and texture don’t matter unless the formula is long-lasting. What’s the purpose in using something that will only run off? Luckily, I didn’t encounter this problem with “Browfood.”
In conclusion, I found this brow product to be a worthwhile sample. While I don’t think it’s better than my holy grail Anastasia Beverly Hills “Brow Wiz”, it certainly is effective. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing though, given that it’s more expensive than the Anastasia.
Thanks for reading.
Have you tried out “Browfood”?
