“How to achieve the perfect brow” is among the current most searched phrases in beauty, so Giorgio Armani have created their perfect Giorgio Armani Brow Collection to help you achieve the perfect brow. The Giorgio Armani Brow Collection consists of three products which can be used individually or together. When it comes to my brows, I don’t have to do a lot to them as they’re naturally quite full with very dark brown brow hairs, so I tend to prefer brow pencils or brow mascaras for an everyday brow and a brow pomade or cream for when I want a more defined, dramatic brow. Even then I like my brows to look natural as possible as I personally don’t like the whole sharpie, thick slug-like solid brow look.
Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro Brush £30
There is one tool within the Giorgio Armani Brow Collection which is a dual ended eyebrow brush, with the sleek Giorgio Armani black lacquered wooden handle and Giorgio Armani is engraved into the handle in silver metallic writing. I already own the Giorgio Armani Maestro Blender Brush and it is truly exquisite, and the most luxurious makeup brush within my collection, so I was delighted to add the Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro Brush to my collection. The Giorgio Armani Maestro Brushes fuse the most sophisticated Italian design with traditional Japanese excellence and expertise, for the best results. This brush features an eyebrow spoolie brush on one end, and an angled liner brush on the other which can be used within the brows or as an eyeliner brush. Sometimes angled liner brushes like these can be too thick with too many bristles so it’s difficult to create hair like strokes, but this brush really does have the perfect width and bristle density.
Giorgio Armani High Precision Brow Pencil – Wood #1 £25
The High Precision Brow Pencil is available in three different shades and is described as being a natural eyebrow designing pencil, with a six hour wear waterproof formula. It’s an automatic style brow pencil, which twists up for the brow pencil and on the opposite end there is an handy brow comb for combing through your brows to blend the pencil, and shape your brows. The pencil has the ideal firmness as it doesn’t crumble on contact with the skin like some softer brow pencils can, but it’s firm enough that you can use the pencil on its side to create the finest of strokes. The comb is different to any others I’ve tried but it’s very effective at blending the pencil, and ensuring your brow hairs are as neat as possible. From the three shades on offer, I have Wood which is shade 1 and the darkest from the three, and it’s practically identical to my brow hair colour, and is a very dark neutral brown which lasts all day without smudging.
Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro £28
The Eye & Brow Maestro is a very intriguing product as it can be used as a brow pencil, an eyeshadow, an eyeliner, a face contour or even to touch up your hairline depending on the shade you choose. There are an amazing fourteen shades to choose from with hair colour shades as well as bright, colourful shades which will work beautifully as an eyeliner and/or eyeshadow with an unique texture can be applied to both your skin and hair. It has a waterproof formula offering 20 hours hold, but are easy to remove and they contain volatile oils making them easy to apply and blend, whilst feeling lightweight on the skin. The formula contain glass and mica pearls which mimic the natural shine of hair.
I have two shades from the collection; Plum (a deep purple shade with silver micro shimmer) and Wenge Wood (a cool toned matte taupe/brown), and I love them both. Plum is obviously not the kind of shade you’d use with your hairline, or to contour your face but it is such a pretty eyeshadow colour that can be worn quite sheerly, or can be built up very easily for a more intense, richer colour pay-off. Wenge Wood is a great brow shade, even for brows as dark as mine which I really didn’t expect, but it works amazingly well with the Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro Brush to gradually build up the brow. I also like using Wenge Wood as an eyeshadow colour or as an eyeliner, and is one of the more versatile shades within the collection.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried anything within the Giorgio Armani Brow Collection?
