Review : Snoe What's Up Brow! Water Resistant Eyebrow Gel Corrector

Hello lovelies!

Eyebrows can make or break one's face so finding the right brow shape and keeping them clean and neat is always important. It's also important to find the perfect "buddy" to help shape your brows and fill-in gaps if there are any.

I've used various forms of eyebrow makeup. From brow pencils and brow gels, to powder shadows and liquid forms. I can't say which one is the best. It probably varies from each person on what works well on them. Some may find pencils easier because they are faster to apply. Some may think powder forms look more natural. It all comes down to the person in my opinion.

For me, I have oily skin and I also have full bangs so my brow makeup gets ruined if I use products that smudge easily. So I was leaning on buying this waterproof brow product from Make Up For Ever. My sister has one and it is very long lasting.

But luckily, I found a more affordable version from Snoe before splurging my savings on a MUFE!

Snoe What's Up Brow! Water Resistant Eyebrow Gel Corrector
This is Php 899.00. Still a bit expensive for a small product but you won't think it is if you compare it to MUFE's! :P

So let's check the packaging first.

I've been a fan of Snoe packaging. They make locally made products look really good! Comparable to products abroad. Good job, Snoe! 
The important info like manufacturing dates, ingredients and precautionary advices are labeled on the box. You can also check them out on their website.

What I love about this set is that it came with applicators.
The brushes are very useful and soft. The slanted brush for filling-in the gaps and the thin one to do those feathery strokes that look like hair.

The Snoe What's Up Brow! Water Resistant Eyebrow Gel Corrector is available in two shades—Ochre and Khaki. My sister and I bought both! :D

Swatch on my hand 
Left: Ochre
Right: Khaki

When spread-out

I bought the Ochre one, the darker shade, because I have very annoying, thick brow hair.

Here's what it looks like on my brows:

With the product

My sister, on the other hand, has thinner brow hair and a lighter shade of hair so Khaki suits her more.


And here's how Khaki performs on my sister's brow:

Be careful in application because if you put too much on the brush, your brows will look too dark and fake. Just start with little strokes 'til you get the hang of it. Just follow the instructions labeled on the box and you can achieve better looking set of brows.

Is it water resistant? Yes. No need to worry if you're sweating from the hot sun or if it's drizzling out. Does it stay on my oily skin? Yes it does. Really impressed with its good, no, GREAT staying power! 

So let's make things short and clear.

What I LIKE:

- With good application techniques, the brows look clean and natural
- Very good staying power and it's water resistant
- Locally available
- Comes with two good brushes
- Packaging

What I am NEUTRAL about:

- The price. It looks expensive but it's actually like a dupe of an even more expensive product.

What I DON'T LIKE:

- May take some practice to get the brows look more natural 
(but it is sooo worth it)
 - Only available in 2 shades. My sister and I both agreed that the perfect shade for me is actually a mixture of the two shades.

So would I buy again?
Yes. A very easy yes for me.

And that's my review on the Snoe What's Up Brow! Water Resistant Eyebrow Gel Corrector. What do you think of this review? Have you tried the one from MUFE or from other brands? 


Cheers,
DAWN
