If You Weren't Born With Brows On Fleek, Glossier's Boy Brow Can Help

I am all about full brows. I haven’t plucked, waxed or even threaded mine in over 15 years. Sadly, no matter how wild I let my eyebrows grow, they will always be fine and very thin. Cara Delevingne brows? Only in my dreams.

For the last few months, I’ve longingly read articles online about women who’ve been brave enough to do eyebrow extensions. I want thick brows, but I haven’t quite worked up the nerve to actually drop serious dough on having fake ones glued on. I’m also fascinated by microblading, but can’t wrap my mind around the pain potential.

With few affordable options for thicker, fuller brows on the horizon, I randomly came across a Facebook ad for Glossier’s Boy Brow ($18) and impulsively decided to buy a tube. According to Glossier, this product boasts a 10,000 person wait list, so it must be good right?

As soon as my package arrived, I ripped it open, headed for the nearest mirror and applied the Boy Brow. Wowza! In a good way! The application brush is perfectly sized and doesn’t deposit too much pomade. With just a few strokes, my brows definitely looked more prominent, almost like I’d had them professionally tinted. Unlike loads of other brow products, Boy Brow didn’t make my brows look at all unnatural or drawn-on which I really loved. As for fullness, I wouldn’t exactly say they looked fuller; I feel like I would need more hair to actually achieve that. But for an $18 product, I’m super happy and definitely now use it every day for the fleekiest brows given what I’m working with.

One note of caution–choosing the right shade can be tricky. The hair on my head is definitely black, so that’s the shade I purchased. Turns out, it’s really too dark for my fine, thin eyebrow hairs, so brown is actually better for me. My advice would be to email Glossier customer service (they’re freaking amazing, FYI) if you’re at all unsure about the best color for you.
