Fab Face-Off

Gel versus pencil for bolder, better brows

In one corner we have the ever-precise, ever look-sharpening Crayon Poudre brow pencil. In the other? A creamy, blottable gel. What’s guaranteed with both products? Thicker-looking, better defined brows that create plenty of character and spice up any look.
Ideal for a retouch: Crayon Poudre powder pencil
What? This soft and creamy powder pencil fills gaps in brows by mimicking the way real hair grows.
How-to: Once you’ve tamed brows with Crayon poudre’s handy spiral brush, define brows from root to tip, mimicking a natural look by drawing several small cross-hatched lines into sparse areas.
Who? Anyone who wants to create a bold look while naturally lifting, defining and creating gorgeously structured arches.
Ideal for brag-worthy brows: Sourcils Gel
What? This luxurious cream-gel hybrid melts into brows to sculpt, thicken and tint. Also noteworthy is its waterproof formula that’s designed to hold for hours.
How-to: Again, fill brows from root to tip, this time using a brush to lengthen and define brows with a series of small strokes.
Who? For anyone who who wants to subtly boost thin brows to create natural-looking thickness. Available in six shades ranging from blonde to brown and taupe to chestnut, this gel duplicates the look and color of brows with simply stunning results.
