Best Budget Brow Products!

Best Budget Brow Products

The one beauty product that I know we all need and love is Brow products. I usually gravitate towards more expensive brow products as I find they have more of a shade range to fit my dark brows but recently I have found a few budget brow products that have worked wonders at giving me a perfect brow. In today's post, I'll be sharing with you my favourite budget brow products!

MUA Brow Define Micro Precision Eyebrow Pencil 

Now I'm starting off when one of my favourite brow products on this list and it is from MUA. I have mentioned this pencil numerous times like in my Makeup I Can't Live Without post. This pencil has been a favourite of mine for so long now and I literally use it every day. The price of this product is £2.50 making it one of the cheapest brow products on this list and by the way it performs you really wouldn't think it was that inexpensive. I really like this brow product because it applies so easily to the brows without it being too dry, it actually has more of a waxy consistency so its very easy to apply but you do need to use a light hand with it. This brow pencil is a micro pencil which is my favourite type of brow pencil because you can make more hair-like strokes to give you more of a natural look, the micro pencil makes it perfect at filling in the inner part of the brow as well and then I like to use the spoolie to brush through the brows to make it look more gradient. Another reason why I really like this brow product is it actually comes in a pure black shade which a lot of other products do not, they have deeper browns which can work for my brows but my brow hairs are completely black so I love that they have this shade. 

Best Micro Brow Pencils

Revolution Pro Brow Volume and Sculp Gel 

This brow gel is probably my most favourite brow gel ever and this product even beats my Benefit Gimmie Brow. When I usually use a brow gel or mascara its to set my brows that have already been filled in because I have such unruly brows but with this product I like to use it on days when I'm wanting a quick and easy brow look. All I do with this brow gel is go straight on my naked brow and fill them in and this product fills in the brows so easily and makes them look more defined in seconds. Whenever I'm wanting a more natural look or if I'm wanting to do my brows really quickly then this is the product that I go for. For a brow gel, this product clings onto the hairs and makes them look more full so easily and if you have freshly tinted and waxed brows (I cannot wait for the day!) this product would be perfect. Another reason why I love this brow gel is because of the tiny brush head, it makes it so much easier to run through the brows and doesn't leave a mess around the brows and it gives you more control when you're applying the product. To give myself really defined brows when I use this gel I like to fill in my brows with this first and then use a micro pencil to fill in any gaps and this helps to give me a really strong defined brows that took me minutes and you get all of this for only £7.

Primark Beauty Brow Sketch Brow Pencil 

I got this product on a whim one time when I was just browsing through the beauty section in Primark and I'm so glad that I did. I wasn't too sure about this at first because it was in a lighter shade than I usually wear in Dark Brown but it actually gave my brows a more natural look. This is also a micro brow pencil like the MUA one but it dies have a slightly different formula. This brow pencil is slightly stiffer than the MUA one and doesn't seem to have a waxy consistency but it also isn't dry. I mainly like to use this brow pencil when I use the Revolution Pro Gel, this pencil fills in the inner corners of my brows so well and makes them look really natural and gradient. I like to use this brow pencil mostly when im wanting a more natural look or if im doing a no-makeup makeup look because the shade Dark Brown shows more of my natural brow hairs through and it makes it look like I've just had my brows tinted. If you are someone who likes to not spend 10 minutes on their brow every day (me) then I think this brow pencil would be perfect for you and this pencil is the cheapest product on the list for only £2!

NYX Brow Tinted Mascara 

This brow mascara was actually one of the first brow products that I ever used and I still use it to this day, I remember that I brought this because of a recommendation on youtube. The Revolution Pro gel and this mascara are pretty different and I also use them for different brow looks. I mainly use this brow mascara when I already have my brows done and I need my hairs to be tamed. This brow mascara does really well at keeping my brow hairs in place without them looking wild and all over the place. This brow mascara is different from the Revolution Pro Gel because it isn't as liquidy in formula and it also isn't as pigmented but it works really well and keeping the brows in place. I like to use this when my brows are already filled with a lot of makeup and I don't want to add more pigmentation because that will make them look like caterpillars. This brow mascara is also really good at setting the inner corner of the brows because it keeps the hairs in place without making them look too filled in. I also like to use this when im literally wearing no makeup but I just need my brows to look a more defined and a lot less like hagrid and another plus is that this brow mascara is only £7!

Revolution Pro Brow Pomade 

Back in the day (around 2 years ago) I was obsessed with brow pomade and I started off with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow which I used up until it had dried out and I wanted another one but it's really pricey and I wanted to try out a more affordable version so I decided to go for the Revolution Pro Brow Pomade. When I look for a pomade all I want is it to be creamy enough to apply to the brows easily without too much work and this brow pomade does just that and for half the price of the Brow Wiz. I don't use this product on a daily basis but when I'm looking for a really sharp and detailed brow look then this is the product that I got for. What I like most about this product is that I have had it for a few months now and it still hasn't fully dried out. The product slightly dried down but all I do for this is spray the brush im going to use with a small amount of setting spray and the product applies perfectly to the brow. This pomade is only £5.99 and comes in a wide range of shades making it perfect for everyone with all different hair colours.

    1. They really are and they frame the face as well, I never feel great when I’m having a bad brow day. I need to try a few more brow products from NYX! x

  4. This was great! I hate spending money on brow products but usually need a higher end one to get my shade as well. I need to check out the MUA one and see if they have a match for me. A lot of cheaper brands only have one blonde shade and it's often really warm and a little bit yellow. It would be great to find an affordable option x

    1. Thank you! I know they can be so expensive for such a small product, I’ve spent £20 on just one brow product before. I totally get that more affordable products just don’t have enough shades, but definitely check out MUA! X

  7. These all look like great products. I normally use the Soap and Glory eyebrow pencil but I might switch when that runs out.

  8. Ooh I've actually not tried any of these but definitely need that first pencil at £2.50! I love the NYX brow pomade pencil too so would definitely be up for trying the tinted mascara with it!

  9. I also really like the NYX brow pomade! I have used it for years and it is such a good dupe of the Anastasia dip brow pomade!

  10. I always laugh when I hear people make comments judging lower cost or budget makeup products, as there ARE some great options out there if you take the time to explore them! Thank you for sharing these. I have used the NYX product before, but that's the only one that I have experience with. I'll have to check out some of the others!

  11. In an ideal world I'd have my brows microbladed but (1) cost and (2) I'm chicken! So finding the right brow products for my sparse ones is a constant search. I've not tried any of your recommendations but for these prices it's a no brainer - thank you, Aaliyah! Lisa

  12. Thank you for this! I'm a big brow person because my natural brows are SO fair that I need product on them with a face of make up otherwise I literally look browless! So I'm keen to try some different types of brow products and I definitely trust your recommendations! x
