Review Overview

Natural Brow Shaper is essentially a lightweight mascara for brows. You can groom and shade your eyebrows with natural-looking color and a soft, natural-looking finish. This is truly best for the brows only; it applies well and dries quickly, yet the bristles on the brush aren’t long enough to reach down to the roots of any gray hair you may wish to conceal. The colors aren’t the best for very dark brown or black hair, but there is a nice range for lighter hair shades, while the Auburn shade is a neutral tan best for someone with light brown or dark blonde brows. A Clear version is also available. One caution: Overapplying this can cause flaking, so use it sparingly until you adjust to how much is needed to achieve the desired effect.

Brand Overview

Bobbi Brown At-A-Glance

Strengths: A good cleanser and eye makeup removers; some impressive foundations, with options for all skin types and preferences; very good blushes and eyeshadows (powder and cream); several top-notch mascaras; mostly excellent brushes.

Weaknesses: Multiple moisturizers in jar packaging, otherwise great products hindered with irritating fragrant oils or fragrance components.

It all began with lipsticks. In 1991, New York based makeup artist Bobbi Brown debuted a collection of ten lipsticks at Bergdorf Goodman, expecting to sell about one hundred units in a month. She sold more than that the first day. From there, it's been mostly success after success, as Brown launched her classic foundation stick, wrote her first book, Bobbi Brown Beauty The Ultimate Beauty Resource, and enjoyed continued attention as an in-demand makeup artist and beauty educator.

Today, Bobbi Brown's makeup that continues to excel with superior foundations, true matte blushes and eyeshadows, and with all of the other basics that are essential to anyone’s makeup wardrobe. It isn't the least bit surprising that this makeup collection continues to do so well, because for many it's one-stop shopping that combines classic makeup application techniques with enough fun-yet-functional products to keep customer's interest piqued season to season.

Turning to the skincare collection, there are a few excellent formulas, but unfortunately, many are packaged in a jar, which means their beneficial ingredients are rendered useless due to air exposure (and bacterial contamination from spatulas or fingers). In addition, some suffer from the inclusion of potent fragrant essential oils. Those that should be avoided are noted in their respective reviews. That aside, color is without a doubt Bobbi Brown's strong point—but you will find a few sleeper hits among the selection of skincare products.

Eyebrown Mascara from Bobbie Brown

I love this product; I am fair with fading "dirty" blond eyebrows beginning to be sprinkled with white. This product looks natural, goes on easily and stays on all day. I use Blonde. Many thanks to the Bobbie Brown sales lady at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC who whipped it out and applied it while I was shopping for make up brushes. This product is a game-changer for me.
