Okay.. it’s been more than a week since I got my little hands on this gem, and I’ve been using it EVERY.DAY. So worth it. Now had she paid as much attention to the Legendary Mascara, she’d be doing some things. I like the Legendary Brows better than her original brow definer because it’s ridiculously easy to use. The only thing is, you have to have brow hairs for this to really work. If you have to do any drawing, this is not the product for you.
One of the most notable things about this product is the brush size. Now you think this wouldn’t be a big deal, but it’s so perfectly tiny that you can really get the brow you want with just a few strokes. I love the Anastasia Brow Gel formula, but that massive brush is the same size as a standard mascara, and it can be a mess if you’re trying to do any kind of precision work.
The formula is also excellent. When I tell you that this stuff will work on the oiliest skin without ending up looking like a grease slick, and will NOT come off without some real cleanser… preferably oil based. I tried to wash it off with a wack cleanser sample I had and I swear this stuff just laughed at me. It lifts and separates the hairs, and holds them in place until you take it off.
Like the original brow definer, my color is Cara (named for Delevingne). You see how it looks like I have twice as many hairs as I actually have? Now, in the original picture, I don’t have a stitch of makeup on, so the light will pick up my skin and the actual hairs differently. But I took them as close to time as possible, so you can see how much of a difference it makes.
Strong brows and strong lips for this look means minimal base. So that’s By Terry CC Cream and a dusting of Charlotte Tilbury’s Pressed Powder in Medium … which I’ve decided I actually love. Mascara is predictably Armani Black Ecstasy, and lips are OFRA Liquid Lipstick in Brooklyn. Whew these joints are KEEPERS! Even that ‘Mi Vida Loca’ look isn’t enough to keep me from rocking them. If I gotta run around lookin’ like Sad Girl for a day to wear such a comfortable formula that really wears like a matte lip creme with just minimal transfer… I’m doin’ it!
