Oh my goodness. If you’ve seen me tame down a little bit ( juuuust a little bit! ) on my MAC addiction for the past few years, this is the first time that I’ve hyperventilated, and got really excited ( to the moon! ) as I saw the visuals for MAC Cosmetics The Stylish Brow Collection.
I love my eyebrows. So much. I used to stay after my formal classes in makeup in Singapore to practice shaping and drawing eyebrows until I perfected it, and I am just so obsessed with it. I believe that it frames the face, and you can go bare-faced for all you want for the day, but the eyebrows always need to be perfectly shaped, whether it is just naturally shaded for that effortless, polished look for a simple day, or that well-defined, elegant look for night time. Brows are everything. Repeat after me. You’ll thank me next time when you finally realize it! I feel so naked without eyebrow makeup. Really.
MAC Cosmetics holds the one product that I swear by over, and over, and will never get tired of searching, and hoarding – the MAC Brow Set in Girlboy. After shading the eyebrows, I always like to soften it as my brows are pitch black, and no amount of shading would make it lighter. I shade my eyebrows with a soft shade of light brown, and proceed to apply girl boy like a brow mascara on my eyebrows until it looks really soft focus and light-colored. I love it with all my heart!
Now, MAC Cosmetics has launched Stylish Brow, a limited edition collection of eyebrow products that I’m sure alot of you would love! Here are the products with some of my commentary to further guide you on which you might want to get!
Plucked, penciled, sharp and shaped, natural-looking, diva arched – the eyebrow, as revealing, individual and expressive as the eye itself. With a collection of professional products, shades and tools, MAC raises the brow to an art form. And for a limited time, introducing Brow Duos, three perfect pairings of complementary powder colors, one matte, one satin, that blend beautifully to match and highlight a range of hair shades.
BLONDE Omega (matte) Soba (satin)
REDHEAD Cork (satin) Espresso (matte)
BRUNETTE Coquette (satin) Brun (satin)

Brow powders? Golden. They are golden. I need them so much! They are the brow products that give soft, and natural definition to the eyebrows. Pair it with the MAC 208 eyebrow liner brush, and you’re guaranteed soft, natural-looking eyebrows. The result is effortless and just very natural. For girls who have light hair color, blonde would be great for you. For those who have dark hair color, Brunette would be great. Redhead would be good only if you have reddish hair!

Oh my gosh. I used to remember before, when I was studying makeup in Singapore, when I kinda overplucked my eyebrows. Kinda their standards there – really thin eyebrows. My skin was just so oily that no product stayed on my eyebrows, and I was desperate. I knew in my heart that my trusty ‘ol MAC Fluidline in Dipdown stays on my eyelids forever. Soo….what I did was use my eyebrow brush, get some MAC Fluidline , and draw my eyebrows! And it worked! My brows look perfectly defined! This product would need some really used-to-doing-eyebrow-makeup hands though, as this can pass of as an eyeliner so you can’t use too much product! My tip would be get some product on the brush, then lightly line at the back of your hand to remove too much product if it’s too harsh, then with the “remains” in the brush, start drawing your eyebrows with it. It’s better to start with a small amount rather than having to erase your eyebrow makeup.
Oh. I AM SO GETTING THIS! In Dirty Blonde! I just know, that this will have fabulous lasting power!!!!

For those who are into brow pencils, then these look great! The shades look really forgiving. I still say the same – try drawing at the back of your hand first to gauge on how intense the color is prior to proceeding to your eyebrows!
208 Angled Brow
MAC has the best eyebrow brushes. Nuf said.
Oh my goodness!!!! Ask me when they will be available in counters? This February!!! They’re limited edition, so I really suggest to plan out your weekends amongst these malls – MOA, TriNoma, Glorietta, Shangri-la, and even Powerplant so you can try to “drop by” and check if they will be available already! I’m definitely going to be one of those on the lookout! I’m looking at the Brow Duo, as I really use powder ever since I started doing makeup, and the Brow Fluidline Gel Creme, as I would want to play with it.
So, anything you like? Eeee I’m so excited! Eyebrow power!!!
