Boy Brow is a brow product from Glossier that costs £14. The brand describe it as their “all in one brow fluffer, filler and shaper”. It has a teeny tiny brush that is the perfect size for brows (even the not so bushy). I’m not typically one for these brow gel type products as my brows generally stay in place well, however, I heard so much hype about this product on YouTube that I wanted to try it anyway.
I chose to get the ‘Brown’ one but it also comes in clear, blonde and black. It has a nice amount of colour to it that still looks super natural.
I found it very easy to apply due the great size brush and the texture is lovely. It’s described as a creamy wax formula and it is. It holds the brow hair in place really well without feeling crispy. I can feel a heaviness on my brows initially but after a while I forget it’s there.
Once applied, the result is a well groomed but natural look. It gives some colour and thickens the brow hair which helps a bit if you have sparse patches. I think this product would be amazing to use on it’s own as your sole brow product if you don’t wear much makeup, especially eye makeup, and go for a very natural look.
For me right now, it’s not enough to use on its own. I wear quite a lot of eye makeup (eye liner and lots of mascara) so if I just use this my brows get lost and don’t frame my face well enough. I need more definition and more accurate filling in of sparseness. I use a NYX Micro Brow Pencil day-to-day to fill in my brows and when I use Boy Brow on top I don’t find it makes much difference whether I use it or not. If you have very wayward brows that go scruffy and all over the place this product might be really great, however, with my brows staying in place well on their own, Boy Brow isn’t really something I need in my routine.
I was hoping this might give me amazing brows on its own and would do so with super quick application. Unfortunately, it didn’t give me the definition I feel I need. However, if you’re a natural makeup guy or gal and often go about your everyday life with just some mascara and a lip balm, this might be amazing for you and give your brows a bit of extra fleek.
