Eyebrows are such an important part of our appearance. They are one of the most distinctive features on our faces. Many people spend as much time perfecting their eyebrows as they do applying makeup to their eyelashes or lips. Eyebrows are also one of our most expressive facial features. One of the easiest ways to tell somebody what you’re thinking is to simply move them up or down.
Growing up I was pretty self conscious of my brows. Big, dark and bushy, they dominated my face. But then I discovered tweezers and plucked them within an inch of their lives. I went from one extreme to the other. After years of obsessive plucking they’ve never really grown back properly and I’m now left with bald patches that I spend hours trying to conceal. So when I was given the opportunity to try out the Toppik Brow Building Fibers set, which claims to ‘make even the thinnest eyebrows instantly thick, full and natural-looking‘, I jumped at the opportunity.
Toppik is an international brand first established in the U.S over three decades ago and they have been revolutionising the hair care and hair loss industry ever since.
The Brow Building Fibers Set is like no other product that I’ve come across before. The fibers are made of coloured keratin protein, the same type of protein that’s found in your natural hair. The fibers have a static charge that binds them to your own hair to create a completely natural look and feel.
I opted for the ‘medium brown’ shade which I thought was best suited to my hair colour and skin tone. The set comes with a conditioning brow wax, the brow fibers and a dual ended brush. The brush has both a flat and angled side so you can use either to apply the wax and fill in the brows. The wax is designed not only to tame unruly brows, but to condition them and prepare them for the use of the fibers. Containing Mango, Cocoa butter, Avocado, Jojoba Oils and Shea Butter, the wax is also really nourishing to the brow hair follicles and skin.
The product was really quick and easy to use. You just dip the angled side of the brush into the wax and apply to clean brows. Then dip the flat side of the brush into the fibers and simply add to your brows where needed.
Before using Toppik Brow Building Fibers
As you can see in the before and after photos, the set worked wonders for me. The brows look evenly filled and felt weightless after application, also leaving the brow looking defined, natural, and symmetrical. The process took approx. 2 minutes and didn’t require the use of many fibers, meaning this will last me ages.
After using Toppik Brow Building Fibers
This truly brought my brows back to life without having to use eye pencils that don’t even resemble hair.
I’ve used this for the last four days, and on each occasion my brows have looked and felt great all day long. The fibers don’t fade away during the day and they don’t smudge if your hair blows across them or you manage to catch them with your hand.
If you’re looking for natural, fuller looking brows and want to achieve the look quickly and effortlessly, then this is a must have item for you.
