I have been trying to find the best drugstore brow products and am coming up short handed.
Here are the latest contestants, from top to bottom. (All purchased from Target or CVS)
- Brow Stylist Definer by L’OREAL – Ultra fine pencil with spool brush – works ok, seems like I have to apply a lot of pressure to get a line drawn, color matching decent, stayed in place most of the day.
- Brow Fantasy by Revlon – Weird powder and brow gel with a spool applicator and sponge tip – negative, and that’s all I have to say.
- Micro Brow Pencil by NYX – again, have to apply a ton of pressure to draw lines, it shouldn’t be such a struggle, color matching could be better, stayed in place.
- Brow Pencil by Revlon – It has a thicker angled point brow product and a spool brush on one end, didn’t have to press too hard, stayed well, I didn’t have to use a ton of product, the thickness of it makes it tough to draw hair like lines, seems like it’s better for those who like to use a shading technique.Bottom line: I’m still searching. Do not want to spend $21 on a specialty brow product, haven’t found my perfect match on color and although I like to be able to draw a thin line to fill in my brows, I prefer not to have to apply super-human pressure to do so.
What’s your favorite brow product?
Isn’t it amazing how crazy busy life can get? Between the 8-5, soccer practice, recitals, playdates, homework and… and… AND! There’s the need to feed the family. The following meals have been tried and true staples during the super busy times. Enjoy!
White Chicken Chili (without beans) – Just 100% good and quick! Follow the crock-pot recipe to make it ridiculously easy. www.TheRealFoodRDS.com Serve with some tortilla chips or diced avocado. (photo from TheRealFoodRDS)
Taco Tuesday Stuffed Peppers – Not the easiest or quickest but it’s totally worth the work. Recipe is here. I love to make these in addition to our regular Taco night menu. They make perfect leftovers for lunch to-go. (My photo)
Sheet Pan Dinners – One pan and done. I love these type of dinners. Just be sure you have a higher quality sheet pan so it doesn’t warp in the middle of baking (my favorite pan is from Pampered Chef). I typically use Chicken Thighs or Boneless Pork Chops. Check it out here www.TheKitchn.com (photo from TheKitchn)
Spaghetti & The Meatball – Yep you read that right “THE Meatball”, meaning one meatball 🙂 A step up from our typical sketti & frozen meatballs & sauce dish. We like to follow this recipe from www.HalfBakedHarvest.com except we double the meat and divide into 8-10 large meatballs. (photo from HalfBakedHarvest)
Whole30 Style Zuppa Toscana (Olive Garden Dupe) – I’ve tried a few different variations and they always turn out super yummy. Check out the recipe here: www.FarmsteadChic.com (photo from FarmsteadChic)
MYO Night – also known as Make Your Own and/or Leftover night. The kids really hate to see this on our meal board. Basically because it means it’s leftover night! They eventually figure something out and all is good again in the world. 🙂
