Remember during the 2000’s everyone wanted thin brows? It was the most desired eyebrows while 12 years old me had the thickest eyebrows on earth. Trying to fit in with the latest trends, I, of course, tweezed all my eyebrow hairs making my eyebrows as thin as a piece of string. Now today’s trend is thick and natural eyebrows. Well, guess what? Us trend followers from the 2000’s have no eyebrows hairs to grow! Personally, I have had very sparse eyebrows even trying to grow them out for five years. I just can not get them to grow so eyebrow makeup it is. I later on in life would love to get my eyebrows micro-bladed if my eyebrow hairs will never grow up to look the same as they used to but as of right now it is out of budget since I am a broke college student. Researching online to see ways of how to get my eyebrows to always look on point without always having to put makeup on I came across Wunderbrow.
Wunderbrow claims it is a long lasting, transfer proof, budge proof, waterproof eyebrow gel makeup. You can shower, swim, workout, sleep and do anything in your daily routine and it will stay put for up to three days! Does that not sound like a dream come true? Here is what the manufacture of Wunderbrow says about the performance of the eyebrow makeup: Wunderbrow contains an exclusive blend of hair-like fibers, combined with specifically treated pigments designed to fasten onto skin and hair. This Hair Fiber Complex is then fused into our PermaFix Gel to create a flexible matrix, locking the natural color and hairs onto our brows. The results are natural looking, perfectly shaped eyebrows that last for days. Wunderbrow is a new solution which allows women to easily fill, define and shape their brows with a natural looking color that lasts until they decide to take it off. Wunderbrow gives the convenience of the perfect brow, at home, and in one easy step. This product comes in five colors: blonde, brunette, auburn, black/brown, and jet black.
I decided to give this product a try after reading many reviews and watching Youtube videos on their first impressions. I bought the black/brown shade with the Wunder cleanse because the website claimed that the product would not come off unless used with their special cleanser. I was very excited to try this new product out since I will be going on mini getaways and would save me a lot of time on my makeup since my eyebrows take the longest! It took about 5 days (including the weekend) so it did not take very long.
I could honestly say that the application of this product was very hard and took even longer to do my eyebrows normally. I have been doing my eyebrows every day since I have been in middle school so I would say that I am pretty experienced in applying makeup to the eyebrow. It would be pretty difficult for someone who does not have much experience. The applicator is a lipgloss type brush when I am normally used to an angled eyeliner/eyebrow brush. The product not only came out very patchy but it was very thick and lumpy which really freaked me out. I kept blending it with my eyebrow slowly and it blended out nicely, but you should wait a few seconds to let dry before blending.
Overall, I would give this product a 3 out of 5 stars because:
The application is very difficult to work with, you need another type of brush on hand for this product.
This works better with sparse eyebrows rather than no eyebrow hairs at all because it will flake off and look a tad bit odd and less natural which makes me feel bad for people who have no eyebrow hair.
I touched my eyebrow with my finger and swiped it and nothing came off my finger but I also swiped a Q-Tip on my eyebrows after applying and I saw product on the cotton, but I do feel like it was because I used too much product or did not wait that long before drying so I will give this another shot at some time.
I bought the Wundercleanser but there was no need for it because my Makeup Forever waterproof eye gel completely melted this product off so if you have a good makeup remover that removes waterproof makeup chances are it will remove this product too.
I do like this product, I think it was very useful to people who wants to go swimming for the day and do not want to come out of the water brow-less.
I like the price of the product, not too cheap but not too expensive. The Wunderbrow itself cost 20 dollars and the Wundercleanser cost around 9 dollars with free shipping.
I hope this helps someone that is in need of a new eyebrow product because this is sure to last a long time for you! I would recommend this to anyone who is going somewhere where they need their eyebrows to be stuck on such as going swimming, going on a mini vacation and want to spend less time on their makeup, or even on a daily basis especially summer when the air is humid and we start to sweat off our makeup!
