Makeup Monday: Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow [Review]

Happy Monday friends!

For today's beauty/makeup post I'll be reviewing Make Up Forever's Aqua Brow.

Aqua Brow is part of Make Up For Ever's Aqua Collection which was originally created for the Parisian water ballet.  The products in this collection are said to be "high performance, long lasting products withstand the most extreme conditions while staying completely waterproof, crease-proof, and fade-proof".

Make Up For Ever ("MUFE") is generally known for its high quality makeup products and tools and this product does not disappoint.  This is actually my first MUFE product and was given to me by my sister for Christmas.  Being that Guam does not have a Sephora, nor does Sephora ship to Guam (what's up with that?), I was really stoked to get to try a MUFE product for the first time.


This is what it looks like when you get it.  Since I have dark hair, I use the color Ash - it also comes in light blonde and blonde.  It runs for about $20.00 at Sephora and though it may seem pretty expensive for 0.23 oz, a little goes a LONG way with this, trust me.


To apply this product, I squeeze the tube a little - just enough to get some on the brush - then I swipe an angled brush on the tip of the tube to pick up some of the product.  I use the brush to shape from the arc to the tip of my brow first and then go over the rest of my brow in short strokes to fill it in.



Now, let me just tell you that I have very weird eyebrows.  They are thick in the inside (near my nose) and sparse at the ends (see the first picture).  This, my friends, is the result of years of over plucking, trimming, and shaving them.

Before using MUFE's Aqua Brow I was just using a dark brown eyeshadow and my angled brush to shape and fill my brows.  Never again!

Since using Aqua Brow, I feel like a new person!  Okay, you may be rolling your eyes and thinking that I'm over exaggerating but I'm totally serious - if you have brow problems, you'd know what I'm talking about.

This product is absolutely amazeballs.  It seriously lasts all day without fading or smudging.  I no longer have to keep checking to see if my eyebrows need to be touched up.  And one of the best things about it - it's waterproof!  That means I can swim all I want and still have eyebrows when I emerge from the ocean!!!!!


I give this product 5 out of 5 quacks and I definitely recommend this product to all my over-plucked and under-shaped brow sisters out there!

  1. This is a great post - I love honest reviews, so thank you for posting! I love using a brow enhancer of some sort, I think it makes such a difference. But some aren't so fab, so I'll definitely have to try this one - it looks great on you and so natural (which is super important to me!)

    Thanks so much for linking up with Style Sessions, it is lovely to have you part of it! I look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday afternoon!

  3. i like it.. it's very natural-looking. i've seen some girls really paint on the brows super thick but this looks very natural and pretty.

    i have super thick eyebrows that, if left ungroomed, look like two caterpillars chilling on my forehead. i thank my dad for my thick brows :(

  4. Nice!!

    I'm cheap, er..frugal*, and like to use my brown mascara to get my brows in line. Works for now, I guess.

    I love "MUFE" lipgloss- A few years ago I picked up a trio gift set with red, coral, and pink. BEAUTIFUL! The coral was my favorite but sadly haven't picked it up again.
