Dan and I are going on holiday in August, and I’m so excited! Being by the pool a lot of the time, I’d like to take some waterproof makeup with me. As I have so many great products, I thought I’d start by shopping my stash before buying anything new. A while ago I received the Browhaus Classic Brow Lead * from an event. While going through my makeup, I noticed that the Brow Lead is waterproof, so thought I’d pull it out and give it a try!
All products marked with * have been gifted to me for consideration. More information can be found in my full disclaimer.
The Browhaus Classic Brow Lead applies nicely. The product isn’t too hard or too soft. The surface area is smaller than the Soap & Glory Brow Archery pencil, which I’ve reviewed previously. It also comes with a sharpener and the pencil has a spoolie attached to the other end. I find this really handy.
The Browhaus Classic Brow Lead comes in three shades, I have Asphalt. I think out of the three shades, Asphalt is probably the best option for me, as it’s cool toned. I have a particular dislike of warm toned products in my brows.
Something I’ve noticed about my brows is that they’re not even. I know this is the case for everyone, but there’s one part that’s particularly noticeable. The main section of my right brow is lover than the left. If I don’t rectify this with my brow products, I look silly. I was really impressed with how the Browhaus Classic Brow Lead looked in the main part of my brows, but unfortunately it wasn’t a dark enough shade to even out the wonkiness.
Wonkiness that I can’t correct with the Brow Lead
As I was considering the Browhaus Classic Brow Lead for use by the pool, I thought I’d better test to see if it’s waterproof. I have to say that I was disappointed here. With a few of wipes with a wet finger, the colour was gone. Not only that, but the tail of my right brow faded during the day. I suspect this was as the result of my rearranging my fringe.
Brows evened out a little by adding the Soap & Glory Brow Archery to the top of my brow (left side).
I’d recommend checking the Browhaus Classic Brow Lead in Asphalt out if you like more cool toned shade on your brows, don’t have any gaps in your brows and don’t need something that’s waterproof or smudge proof. I’ll be continuing to use the Brow Lead during the cooler months, but won’t be repurchasing when it’s used up.
The Browhaus Classic Brow Lead contains 1.2g of product and can be purchased from Browhaus salons for £12. A list of salons can be found at browhaus.com.
