Stealing the Spotlight: L’Oréal Brow Stylist Plumper

L'Oreal Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara

It’s been a while since I purchased anything new for my makeup bag. But one item has been calling. I’ve read tons of reviews about brow gels, yet that’s just what was missing from my makeup arsenal. It was time to remedy this oversight.

A well-defined brow is everything to me, so how is it that I had been allowing a mascara to be doing the work of a brow gel for so long? I’m sorry, but I don’t have an explanation for the madness.

So I took a trip to Ulta with one specific mission in mind — to purchase said missing item. Of course, before I could even jump in the car I had to research which brow gel was the best. Benefit’s Gimme Brow received high praise, but its $24 price tag was a little steep. I was between the Maybelline Sculpting Brow Mascara and the L’Oréal Brow Stylist Plumper, and since the latter brand has yet to fail me, I went with L’Oréal.

Next question was whether I should go with the light to medium color or the medium to dark. Again, the latter option was the winner.

But once at Ulta I was easily distracted by the rows of beauty products. A quick stop down the Neutrogena aisle proved to be my downfall, as I added a new MoistureSmooth Color Stick to my collection (you can read my review about that product here).

After briefly going off course, I grabbed the L’Oréal brow gel and couldn’t help but notice the “buy one get one 50% off” sign. How could I pass that up? Who doesn’t need another mascara? So L’Oréal’s Voluminous Mascara also came home with me. I digress.

{Before & After}

As soon as I got home I tore open the brow gel and immediately applied it…because going out for Restaurant Week is serious business, I’ll have you know. It was easy to use — just swipe up and across your brows — worked like a charm — and the medium to dark color was just right. The gel dries quickly and a little goes a long way — so apply the product sparingly so your brows don’t feel hard and clumpy. If you are a dark brunette, I would opt for the medium to dark shade, as I did.

For $8.99, this brow gel gets the job done just fine. You can thank me later for saving you some dough!

Have you tried L’Oréal’s Brow Stylist Plumper?



    1. Thanks, Mary! Brow gel is a great way to finish off your brows with a little color. I think this brow plumper definitely made my brows fuller — which as you mentioned, is all the rage right now!

  1. You look beautiful, Vanessa! I can see the difference in your brows, I’ll have to check this one out, I’ve never noticed it before, so I’m glad you mentioned it! I also love the red lip, it looks great on you! I swear, every time I walk into the store with the intention of just going in and out, I spend 3 hrs and come out with a ton of bags, which is why whenever I say to my husband, “babe, you want to just run into Marshalls real quick, I need to get something for the kitchen?” he says, NO!!! Oh boy, anyway, I hope you’re having a great day so far, beauty, and thanks so much for sharing!



    1. Thanks, Jalisa! I’m glad I finally bought this product. It gives a much softer appearance than you get using regular mascara in your brows. I love my Neutrogena color stick, but I should have taken stock of my lipstick inventory first — as I have the exact same color at home. Oh, well. #impulsebuy

    1. It’s seriously the best, Kathrine! It’s easy to use, and it makes your eyebrows look like you just had them shaped. I don’t know how I lived so long without a brow gel.
