Review: MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy7/01/2013
Hey there! How's your weekend? Happy first of July!
It's been quite a while since I last posted a review on the beauty products I've been using for the past few months. I've been lucky to be invited to a lot of events recently that's why I missed posting a lot of beauty product reviews.
Enough said, I am finally back and this time, I'll be sharing to you a product I can highly guarantee to give you that flattering and beautifully looking eyebrows - the famous MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy.
At first, I was a bit hesitant to splurge on this product (priced at Php 950.00), thinking that I can also get the same output with cheaper alternatives (Majolica Majorca is a very good alternative!) that are available in the market. I'm really glad I took the risk given that I was able to save some during the past few months plus this product served as a reward for a job well done during my IELTS exam.
The MAC Brow Set is a brush-on gel that strokes brows into shape without flaking or stiffening. The shade Girl Boy has a color of fawn blonde (as other beauty bloggers also described it), but to simply put it, it has a bit of dark blonde shade with a subtle golden shimmer. This brow set comes with a wand applicator with a brush at the end - perfect for shaping brows while adding a pop of color.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
- Its fawn blonde shade lightens my brows to a light to medium brown color, thus giving a tamer look. Dark-colored eyebrows depict a harsh and strong persona. It instantly brightens my face as well.
- The size of the tiny wand is good enough to fit my brows.
- A little bit of it can last a long way. I think one bottle will last up to 6-8 months of daily usage.
- It keeps the stray hairs into place thus giving a great definition.
- Based on experience, staying power can last up to 6-8 hours.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT IT:
- At first, the PRICE! But given that this bottle can last long plus the effects of the product on me, the price is already justified.
- This product may not work on those with very thin or sparse eyebrows. Instead, choose a darker shade.

WILL I REPURCHASE?
Definitely. I love this product to bits. I've been receiving good comments about my eyebrows, all thanks to this great product.
MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy can be used alone or in conjunction with an eyebrow pencil and an eyebrow powder. I like the product to really last long on my brows so I add just a little bit of eyebrow powder with the closest shade to set the liquid product.
