MAC Strawberry Blonde Eyebrow Pencil & Dirty Blonde Brow Gel-Creme

One of MAC's winter lines is The Stylish Brow.  It's  three different brow products- powders, pencils and gel cremes.

It's hard for me to find brow shades that work well with my coloring.  As a redhead, a natural one, I have light but not super light brows, yet almost all pencils I try are still too dark. My mom who is a blonde has even more trouble. I have found one or two but that's it. Of course I don't look super hard as I tend to not  do much with my brows other than groom them most days.

With MACs new line , unfortunately it  looks like the shades I've tried so far  won't work for me here either, but there are still some great products, many of which were among the new products tested backstage at Spring fashion week. 

 I really like the Fluidline Brow Gel Creme . The gel/ cream for brows in general is a formula I'm finding I like lately. The MAC gel-creme is easy to use, you don't need a lot , it's loaded with pigment and  it blends really well. The shade here is Dirty Blonde, which  despite being for blondes is too dark for me. I think the  Redhead shade will work but I have to track it down and test it. There are three shades in all in the Fluidline Brow Gel Creme( $16 & LE) - Dirty Blonde, Deep Dark Brunette and Redhead.

The Veluxe Brow Liner is closer to my shade in Strawberry Blonde, but believe it or not, it's still  darker than my brows. Like the Fluidlines, Veluxe Brow easy to use . The pencil seems hard in the casing and broke a bit before even using,   but it glided on  easily, no pulling , adding in plenty of color.  The pencil comes with a spoolie at the other end .

There are five Veluxe Brow ( $ 19.50) shades:

-Strawberry Blonde – Soft muted beige-taupe
-Redhead – Soft brown
-Brunette – Muted mid-tone grey
-Deep Brunette – Muted blackish-brown
-Deep Dark Brunette – Dark dirty chocolate

The Stylish Brow is available now.
