Look at Milani giving Anastasia Beverly Hills a run for her money!
Last Thursday I spent my lunch hour loitering around Walgreens and checking out all the new Summer launches when I chanced upon a display I’d never noticed before: NEW brow gel’s from Milani! I don’t know how justified of a feeling this is, but when I think brow-gel-pomade-type-products, I think Anastasia Beverly Hills. And when I think ABH, I think high-end. So when I saw these displayed in conjunction with their $7.99 price tag, I felt like I’d just hit the drugstore jackpot!
So what do you think? Is it possible that a drugstore brand like Milani could actually be giving Anastasia B. Hills a run for her money? Well, you’ll just have to read on to find out!
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
These brow-gels come in 5 shades (Soft Brown, Natural Taupe, Medium Brown, Brunette, and Dark Brown), so there’s a color for everyone. They also come with a very sturdy, and professional feeling applicator/spoolie, so you can use them right out of the box!
It was hard to tell through the packaging which shade would be the best color match for me. Mostly, I was worried that whatever I’d pick would be too dark, and too warm; but eventually I settled on the shade 03 Medium Brown, and I’m glad I did! Even though it does lean a little warm, I’ve finally got the hang of applying it without overdoing it and it does seem to be a perfect match for my hair color and tone (though I do think I’ll swing by and pick up one shade lighter just for shits and giggles).
IS IT WORTH IT?
I’ve never tried ABH’s brow pomades before (or any gel-like brow product, for that matter), so it took me a few days to get the hang of using this
without looking like I drew my brows on with a Sharpe, but now that I have I’m in love. This product has a great color range, is easy to apply, is super affordable and lasts allll freaking day long.
It does claim to be waterproof, and I must say that is the one thing I haven’t tested, but I can confirm that it is sweat proof, Florida humidity proof, chase a toddler in the backyard proof, and will far outlast your work day.
All in all? I think this is a great product and I totally recommend it!
