Are there moments where you find yourself looking for something different? Something out of the ordinary? In terms of makeup purchases, I satisfy that little “wanderlust” by switching up beauty brands from time to time. Trendy picks are all well and good, but the basics are not to be missed. And what could get more simple and true than the need to have groomed brows at the very least? Enter the Muji Eyebrow Pencil:

Despite being a makeup lover and a little bit of a hoarder, there are times when I have an incredible lack of foresight when it comes to beauty innovations. It’s that fear that trying out a new type of product will bring about the discovery of an overpriced dud, or that I end up liking something that is more complicated than I care to invest time in. But I am only too glad that that wasn’t the case with Pink Sugar Honey I’m Good Eyebrow Kit in Perfect Taupe (P399), because I’ve since momentarily forgotten about brow pencils in favor of this brow quad.

When you’re a fan of hair dye, your best friend becomes brow mascara. I know you can go somewhere to get professional tinting done, but I don’t mind the daily application of colored brow gel as I feel like it also helps make my brows look thicker. I stumbled upon the curious, shimmery Fashion 21 Eyebrow Gel in Light Brown (P 165).

Confession: I am the girl who over-packs no matter what. When I travel with family, it is to the dismay of my mother to see just how many bath and beauty products I force into a small case. I set a rule for myself that everything has to fit into a pouch or case, but I’m always cramming things in to the point of case deformity. And even in my purse, friends often chuckle over why I insist on bringing enough makeup to do a full face from start to finish. Needless to say, the first thing that usually breaks from may vanity kit is the zipper. lol
When the Project Vanity kits came out, I was thrilled and thought the concept was genius. It’s made for hoarders like me who have a difficult time curating their kikay kit. These themed pouches (and one bag) do the thinking for you. It’s kind of like a subscription box, but with a receptacle you can tote around daily. Here’s what I brought to my vacation that significantly lessened my luggage weight:

I am, by no means, a brow expert. Considering that I’ve only had two years of practice in doing my brows, I was surprised to learn that there’s more to it than just mapping and filling. There are issues like hair sparseness and brow product longevity that have to be addressed. So when Billion Dollar Brows sent over their latest product, the Brows on Point Waterproof Micro Brow Pencil (USD 16), it was time to assess my brow situation and experiment with ways to get my brows to look like a
million billion bucks.
