Semi-Permanent Brows for $22? Uh..
Hellooooo! So today I’m talking brows and not just any brows, WUNDERBROWS. So WUNDER2 claims to give you perfect brows that stay put for up to 3 days, with just ONE product. Once applied it’s supposed to be smudge-proof, waterproof, sweat-proof, and basically permanent for several days. Can you imagine just waking up with beautiful brows and being able to itch them without worrying about scratching off your hard work?! Since this has been praised by sooooo many beauty bloggers on YouTube and Instagram, I just HAD to test it out for myself to see if all the hype was true.

Black/Brown - perfect for olive complexions with brown to black brows
Blonde - perfect for natural blondes (unless you want more dramatic brows)
Brunette - perfect for most brunettes (unless you want more dramatic brows)
Auburn - perfect for most redheads
Jet Black - perfect for most dark skin tones and/or those with black hair (or anyone who wants more dramatic brows
I only have Jet Black, Black/Brown, and Brunette. So if you're interested in the lighter shades, I'm really really sorry but I don't have the swatches for you! 😭💔
I typically use Black/Brown and I'm not going to lie, sometimes when I'm feeling a little bit extra I'll even use use Jet Black on the end of my brows for a little bit more bolder brows. 😂 A lot of bloggers get by with just one shade and the end results are fantastic. I'm just a little pickier and like that gradual ombre effect with mine. Oh and hey! The formula is vegan and cruelty free which is always a plus. 🐶🐱🐭🐰🐵💕
The formula is a gel texture and is pretty thick. Each gel is infused with 'hair-like' fibers to help fill and sculpt your brows. If you've seen their products before, you probably noticed these say "with Permafix Technology" and you probably thought to yourself, "Wtf does that mean?".. Okay, so Permafix Technology literally LOCKS color pigments and those 'hair-like' fibers onto your skin so that for at least the next 3 days, you don't have to worry about the product flaking or fading or even smudging off.
Here's my biggest tip when using this, do NOT use the applicator to apply it. I use the WUNDERBROW Dual Precision Brush ($8.95) to apply it to my brows. It's a dual-ended brush that has a firm bristled, angled side that is perfect for mimicking those fine 'hair-like' strokes. (Are you getting sick of me saying 'hair-like' yet? 😂 Then the spool side helps you brush through your brows to soften and smooth out any excess WUNDERBROW gel. It's really helpful but really any brow brush will work. Please don't feel like you absolutely need to purchase this too, if you need to save your money a little. I get you and am only here to tell you about what you actually NEED. Don't worry. 😊💕
So I take out the original little applicator from the gel tube, and I lightly dab my precision brush(or any angled brush) on the sides of the applicator (see photo below). Then, I start off by outlining my brows and lightly filling them in with the gel. I build up as I go until I get to the intensity I want.
Is anyone else curious as to why they always use all caps for their brand name? I'm not sure either, so I'm just going with it. 😂
Once applied the gel dries pretty quickly(so you want to make sure you work a little faster than with most brow products) and looks really natural! I usually have to do my brows very light handed because I'm really pale and it's easy for me to go overboard with other brow gels. But I found that these gels are very workable and can go on lightly and then be built up if needed. Once it's on, it’s definitely smudge-proof and waterproof – to be honest, it’s actually really hard to take off. Which for me, is amazing!
On a small side note, my one year old likes to touch my face constantly, and gives some of the sloppiest kisses ever! And it is definitely not cute when my makeup transfers onto his chubby, little face. But believe me, that is NOT the case with this! So not only is sweat/waterproof, IT'S BABY-PROOF!!!! 🤗
Now it wouldn't be fair of me to only talk about the pros of this product and not be honest about cons. IF you struggle to do your brows, please take your time using this. You can't just swipe it on quickly and wipe off any mistakes you make. This stuff does too good of a job of staying on. So take your time, and work slowly. If you happen to screw up, don't freak out! This DOES come off easily with an an oil-based cleanser or just some plain, old, magical coconut oil. 😉 And then finish up your brows and be happy you won't have to worry about them for the next few days! Ladies (and gentlemen), here it is. The holy grail for lazy women who like to look fab without all the work. 🙌🏻 Interested? You can purchase yours right here.
