Recently I got the opportunity to try Paula Dorf's 2 + 1 for Brows, and now I want to share my thoughts with you all! I must say I was intrigued when I received this pretty little package in the mail c/o Brand Backer and Paula Dorf. My recent obsession with eye brows gave me the perfect reason to try this product as I have been trying a lot of brow products lately.
First thing's first, the packaging is simply pretty. I am a sucker for a clean look and this looks very clean and to the point, so I am a fan of the packaging. Win number one for Paula Dorf.
The brow trio comes with 2 flattering colors and 1 light wax to create natural looking brows that fill in missing hairs or imperfections for all day brows. There are four shades to choose from: Neutral, Blonde, Brunette, and Red. Because of my current hair color being ombre-ish I didn't want to choose either Blonde or Brunette so I went with Neutral.
The swatch on the left is straight from the brush, and the one on the right is after I rubbed on it a bit to test its staying power. I was pleased with the color payoff of the initial swatch and impressed with the ability of the powder to stick strongly to my skin (without wax). Win number two from the swatch.
As I was swatching the brow powders I ran into my first concern. I didn't really like how powdery the brow powder seemed to get when I dipped the brush in it. It may have just been the texture of the brush but I would be lying to you if I didn't say that I was a little worried. This was just the swatch though, so obviously I didn't write the product off - thank goodness.
The next morning I used the trio to fill my brows for work. When I am working I really like having a natural looking face and don't want my brows to look too heavy. My concerns about the texture of the powder vanished when I used it that morning. There was zero fallout and the powder went where I put it. I got exactly what I wanted from the powder, a very natural looking brow. Filled just right.
Throughout the day I did not touch up my brows at all, but I did find myself gently scratching them every now and then. By the time I got home from work and made dinner I decided to take a follow-up picture and I was still happy with the results. My brows were still filled, maybe slightly faded but definitely still darker than my normal.
This brow trio is now in the top grouping of brow products and I will be going to it again next time I need a natural look.
