Hard Candy has released several new products in the past month and one of them immediately caught my attention. Brows Now! ($6) is a double ended product with a brow gel on one end and a highlighter crayon on the other end.
This brow gel comes in two color options; light/medium and medium/dark. I went with the darker of the two and it works perfectly with my medium brown hair.
This brow gel contains fibers and there are a lot of them as you can see from my close up pic. Even though they look obvious on the brush, they aren’t noticable on the brows and don’t cause any clumping in my brows either.
My current favorite brow gel is the Benefit Gimme Brow which also contains fibers. I actually get the same exact results from both products. Since the Benefit version costs almost 4 times as much, I think I’ve found my new fave!
The brush size of this brow gel is slightly larger than the Benefit Gimme Brow but still much smaller than a regular mascara wand. This makes it convenient for getting in close without getting it all around the brows.
I love these kinds of brow products because they fill in your brows just enough without giving them that drawn on look which I don’t prefer. The fibers give them just enough added volume and sets them without making them look or feel crunchy.
The highlighter end is a pearlized champagne color that probably won’t get used by me very often. It is very pigmented and soft and creamy in texture. It will brighten and highlight for anyone who likes a shimmery brow bone highlight but I don’t prefer that at my age.
Overall I’m very pleased with the Hard Candy Brows Now!. It’s great for those days when you quickly want to touch up your brows and have them last all day. In my opinion this is a superb dupe for Benefit’s Gimme Brow at a fraction of the cost.
