As a blonde, with a bit of a strawberry skew to my hair colour it can be a challenge to find a brow shade that truly suits me. There’s a lot of blonde shades that are either too yellow toned, or too ginger toned – what I ideally need is something that looks more like a pale shadow of a hair – rather than the actual hair itself?! If that makes sense at all – basically meaning I more often lean towards a warm grey shadow shade over typical brow products. So I was excited to give the D&G Brow Liner a go as the shade match is promised to be a good fit for blonde brows..
This D&G Brow Liner is a sort of flat crayon shade,with a wide side and a flat side, so you can adjust so it’s not just a uniform applicator. The colour match is decent for the brows, so if you’re blonde it’s a good option. BUT, that’s not all that I’ve been loving this for.
For a while I’ve been loving a bit of a 90’s soft brown eye – sort of smudged looking. Not smokey as such, but a soft mid-toned brown that’s not remotely shimmery, but using cream based products rather than powder. I love this eye paired with a nude lip for a truly 90’s look, or alternatively with an orange toned red lip for something a bit brighter and a bit more current.
So whilst this isn’t technically designed to be an eye liner product – or even an eyeshadow. I do love multi-tasking a product to create a multi-use thing out of something designed only for one thing. Oh, also worth a mention is that at the other end to the crayon of this there’s a brow brush so you can neaten/smooth brows too. Always handy – plus at £33 a pop, it’s good to know you can use it for more than one thing.
There are four shades of D&G Brow Liner available – ranging from dark brown, to a paler warm-toned one.
