First things first, if you haven’t heard of Eye of Horus then you’re missing out. It’s a brand that comes to us out of Byron Bay, Australia and they specialise in all things eye – as the name might suggest… I’ve previously covered their mascara and liner offerings but today I’m taking a look at the new Eye of Horus Dual Brow Perfect and the Babylon Brow Define Liner.
The whole brow ‘trend’ thing isn’t going anywhere fast – and I can see why. Whilst I’m not a fan of the overly defined brows that look like they have been painted on too obviously, I do totally vouch for the impact defined brows have on the face. Brows to me always seemed to be a step too far, a little too much effort and faff. But over the past couple of years I’ve come to realise how important for me – especially as I have naturally pale hair. Without a touch of added defining they can look like I don’t even have any brows where having them does ‘make’ the face look that bit more ‘done’. As I said, I am not the paint-on brow sort of girl and prefer to just add a little extra shade/fill in the spaces where my brows are the palest or still growing back after my over-zealous plucking as a teen…
So for me the two things I want from a brow product are an easy to use shade that is pale enough but not too red-toned (to look more like a shadow than a hair) plus something that tames unruly brows (some of mine seem to have a mind of their own…). So the good thing about the Eye of Horus Dual Brow Perfect is that it offers those two brow-requirements in one product. One end has the twist up crayon and the other end has the brow gel to tame after filling in. I have three shades here to show you there’s Dynasty (medium brown), Husk (ash blonde) and Nile (dark brown). Then I also have the Babylon Brown Liquid Define in the shots too – a liquid-liner in a rich brown shade that’s perfect for adding some definition to eyes in a shade that’s a good alternative to typical black.
For my brows the shade Husk is my ideal shade as it’s pale but not too red toned. The trickiest thing when it comes to brows is that most paler shades (especially on the cheaper side of the scale) are too red toned and make my brows look ginger… which would be perfect if my hair was ginger. But it’s not. Either than or the shade is too grey toned and just doesn’t look natural. The shade Husk of the Eye of Horus Dual Brow Perfect is the happy medium where it’s a warm toned grey that adds a soft shade that suits my natural hair colour for my brows.
Above I’ve swatched each shade with it once lightly -as you would use to apply and then also a little darker so you can get a clear idea of the shade. Then the rich brown Babylon Define Liner is swatched underneath. Easily one of the neatest brown liquid liners I’ve seen – a nice warmer toned liner for Summer and more flattering for me than black but without losing out on definition at all.
My favourite thing about the Dual Brow Perfect is that it offers two products in one – I am a big fan of anything that offers a compact/easy option for beauty essentials. Thanks to this it’s become my brow product of choice for recent travels and has been the thing with me wherever I go. Eye of Horus is a really interesting brand and one to watch for sure – I look forward to seeing it take the UK by storm! They do also have the Brow Define product too that offers a finer-tip crayon and mascara-style brush to comb into place. For me I like that the the Dual Brow Perfect has the addition of gel to actually hold in place after taming – for unruly brows this is a winner.
Eye of Horus Dual Brow Perfect is available from Beauty Bay
