Brows for Brunettes and Blondes: EcoBrow in Liz and Marilyn

Hello everyone! One of my main beauty mantras is “Brows over everything.” Why? Because brows have the power to really tie together your look and on low maintenance days can be all the difference. For the last 3ish years, I’ve called the Cle de Peau #204 my Holy Grail brow pencil. Since buying EcoBrow however, I’ve barely reached for it.
From Ecobrow.com: Marco Ochoa knows beauty. But in his 11 years as an expert brow threader and celebrity makeup artist, he felt there was something missing. “Through my research I discovered that there were only a few natural brow lines on the market — mostly pencils or powders — and my concern was that they either looked too ashy or too fake, neither of which are acceptable.” When Marco began work on his own line, he knew he had to arrive at a universal product that matched every skin tone, stayed true to his philosophy of responsible, eco-conscious beauty and lived up to the standards of the best makeup artists in the world.The result is the EcoBrow Defining Wax, Marco’s own mineral-based, smudge-proof, paraben-free brow line. Nylon gives this hybrid wax/gel its luxuriously smooth texture and long-lasting, cream-to-powder finish. The unique EcoBrow formula blends and diffuses easily into the brow hair, and contains silica for oil absorption as well as nourishing Vitamin E. The intensity of each shade can be controlled easily with the application — you can go as light or dark as you’d like. Marco named the shades in the line after some of his favorite screen goddesses through the ages. Now thanks to him, every woman – whether she’s a Marilyn, Sharon, Rita, Penelope, Liz and Frida can look and feel like a Hollywood icon.”I became interested when my friend Jen, of the Truth Beauty Company mentioned she would soon be carrying a new brow product. When I went in during my last visit and saw that the dark brunette shade literally had my name on it, I immediately decided it had to come home with me. I also opted to get the EcoBrow Defining Brush to go with it and I must say – it applies the product perfectly. The texture is on the creamier side vs. the waxier side however isn’t too creamy to the point of depositing too much colour. The spoolie is not too firm and not too soft and helps diffuse the pigmentation naturally after being applied with the angled brush.Pigmentation is very buildable and lasting power is also strong since it can withstand a sweaty gym session or a 75 minute hot yoga class. I was pleasantly surprised that the shade is the perfect match since I find brunette brow products usually run a bit more on the brown side.
My friend Dana had been struggling to find the perfect brow product for her super light, blonde hair. So when Jen told me that Marilyn was made for pale blondes and I saw that there was only 1 left on the shelf, I texted Dana to see if she wanted in. She was kind enough to send me these 2 photos (above and below obvi) along with her thoughts (note: she has a scar across one of her brows which is why she mentions scarring):
“It’s hard for me to find a brow product light enough to match my hair colour and Marilyn by EcoBrow is perfect. The creamy texture makes it very easy to apply and makes the brow look and feel natural. It provides great coverage for thinner hair and for filling in scars or areas where hair won’t grow.”All in all, both Dana and I highly recommend EcoBrow if you’re looking to get beautiful, natural looking brows from a green beauty product. EcoBrow ($29.95 CDN) is available now at The Truth Beauty Company, online at thetruthbeautycompany.com (use promo code StayGorgeous for 15% off your online order!), and at EcoBrow.com.
