Thursday Thoughts – NYX Cosmetics Thick It. Stick It! Thickening Brow Mascara

January 19, 2023

I’m constantly trying to reduce the amount of time it takes me to do my makeup & one of the items that intrigued me the most was tinted brow gel. Unfortunately, after trying no less than a dozen, I came to the conclusion that they just wouldn’t work for me because they were so messy & provided zero hold. Then, I was told I needed to try the @nyxcosmetics Thick It. Stick It! Thickening Brow Mascara ($11 for .23 ounces – https://rstyle.me/+8QynJ8zuEs7j1jxEarZFCQ) because it was better than anything else on the market. I couldn’t resist the idea of possibly finding one that actually worked, so I ordered it!

What it claims:
πŸ”˜ Made w/ plant-origin fibers, this buildable, tinted eyebrow gel tames & thickens arches w/ a natural finish that lasts up to 16 hours
πŸ”˜ The vegan formula is available in eight inclusive, high-impact shades to complement an array of hair colors from blonde to black
πŸ”˜ Flake, smudge, & transfer resistant
πŸ”˜ Features tapered brush for easy application
πŸ”˜ Cruelty-free

My verdict?
I purchased the shade Brunette & it works well for me. Now, is this product one-and-done for me? No. But does it help me get great looking brows in a lot less time than my normal routine? Absolutely! To get this look, I run the wand forward, backwards, & then forwards again through my brows so that I increase the amount of stick I’ll get. Once I have laid them in the place I want them, I use a cotton swab to clean up any excess outside of my desired shape. Then, I take a brow pencil (this being my current favorite: https://rstyle.me/+JXEWOCUWE72MTx4H2FL60A) and line underneath my brow to create definition and proceed to brush through everything with the brow pencil spoolie. Finally, I lightly set them with my favorite brow gel of all time (https://rstyle.me/+bkCw0cl2wh24y37J5T7Kqg). I realize that doesn’t sound shortened, but trust me, it is. Thank you to the person that told me I needed this because I can’t envision my routine without it now!
