When it comes to eyebrow products, I’ve always been partial to pencils. They’re convenient and easy to use. I’ve tried brow powders and they’re just not as good (for me anyway). Anyhow, I had the opportunity to try the Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel (P499 per 4g pot). It’s definitely a product way out of my comfort zone. In fact, I had to buy an eyebrow brush from Althea because all I have is a spoolie.
The Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel is a gel-type pomade that comes in 4g pots. You apply it with an angled eyebrow brush. I honestly have never used this technique to do my eyebrows so today is a first for me.
The Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel comes in 3 shades: Red Brown, Light Brown, and Dark Brown.
I don’t know why I was expecting it to be powdery but it is not. It really is gel. You can see my brush’s moist swipe marks on the product’s surface.
Here are swatches of the 3 shades. You can choose your shade or mix them up. I could tell at a glance that I was going to use Red Brown and Light Brown.
I used Light Brown to outline my eyebrows and Red Brown to fill them in. It was surprisingly easy to use the products. Took as much time as using a pencil… so in terms of challenge level, for me they are about the same.
This is how my eyebrows looked like under natural light.
What I like about the Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel:
- It’s surprisingly easy to use.
- It has just the right texture and consistency. It’s not sticky or dry, neither is it too wet.
- Pigmentation is excellent. The colors are all very usable too.
- A little product goes a long way… I only used a few swipes to get brows on fleek. This pot is definitely going to last several months, maybe even longer.
- It’s smudgeproof and waterproof. You can’t take it off by simply washing your face, you need to use an oil-based makeup remover.
Downside? You will definitely need to get a good eyebrow brush if you don’t have one. The brush you use will partially determine how easy or hard it is to use the product. Moreover, if you find drawing your eyebrows challenging, it might (for me it’s the same as when I use a pencil) be trickier with this product.
The Project Vanity x Ellana Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel is available at the Project Vanity Store, the Ellana online store, Shopee, Lazada, and all Ellana counters nationwide.
