The Budget Brow



You know it happens every time right? You go in to the drugstore for one thing and you end up with a basket full of unnecessary but somehow necessary items. Well that's what happened to me, I was picking up last minute bits for my holiday and I came across this brow pen from Barry M


When people ask me about my brows, I don't really know what to say - I'm naturally hairy! I never used to bother filling in my brows because they've always been thick and naturally dark (Other than that time when I was 14 and though it would be a good idea to pluck them all off but that's another story!) I only started to fill them in because of a scar I have on my right eyebrow, it's been there since I was a child and no hair grows there. When big brows became the IN thing a few years ago, I embraced it! Since then I've use powders, pencils but nothing like this - a liquid eyebrow marker!?

The brow marker pen by Barry M has quite a chunky nib so initially I was worried I'd end up looking like a cartoon character with horrifically drawn on brows! Surprisingly I found it really easy to create fine strokes which gave my brows an overall uniformed look. I was also unsure how the liquid would sit on my scar but it didn't look bad at all - I was actually quite impressed. 

For £4.99 It's a bit of a bargain, compared to £21 for the Kevyn Aucoin Eyebrow Pencil! 

I bought this in dark brown which is just right! 

Have any of you tried this or any other eyebrow markers? I heard the GOSH one is also quite good!?

Lots of Love


  1. I own this and have used it a couple of times but i think i am more of a powder girl, this felt bit uncomfortable for me. using pigment i think makes it look more natural.

    1. Hi sara i have tried barry m brow marker and using a few times it makes your eyebrows grow back thicker brilliant product

  2. I wish we had Barry M in the US, Ah I'm so jealous of all the awesome makeup brands in the UK! Does it hold up well? I wonder if it doubles as eyeliner, that would be pretty cool, I love things that have multiple uses. Brows are my weak spot, I never feel like they look good so I'm always trying out tons of new things, I wonder if they have something similar like that over here (:

  3. I loooooove your eyebrows! Adding this to my Makeup Must Have list <3

  4. I've not tried a marker, and I'll agree that the marker looks scarily chunky! My brows aren't naturally big, so I'm not sure how this would work on my brows :( I'll have to see in store at just how thin you can get the strokes! :)

  5. Intriguing! Def adding this to my makeup "to buy" list

  6. I absolutely swear by the GOSH one, I've been using it for years and years. I always use it on the arch and the tail, and then fill in the middle and beginning of my brows with a powder for a more natural look!

  7. I use NYX eyebrow marker in deep, love how natural it can look and it lasts all day!! Its the kinda thign you just gotta know how to use, but when you do it can look great!
