MAC The Waterproof Brow is a new limited edition collection just in time for summer, when you actually may need waterproof makeup.
This collection, which is out now online, in stores May 22nd and available until July 3rd, contains seven Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set shades and three Fludiline Brow Gelcreme shades. The formula is made to be sweat-proof, smudge-proof and humidity-resistant.
Waterproof Brow Set is like a mascara for the brows. It comes in a tube with a small mascara-like wand. You can use it alone in your brows for some definition and color, or on top of the Fluidline as a “setting” gel.
Fluidline Gelcreme comes in a little glass container and it has a very creamy formula. You have some time to work with it before it completely sets, and becomes water-resistant.
The shades these come in are Redhead (muted golden brown), Dirty Blonde (soft taupe brown) and Deep Dark brunette (rich brunette).
The shades these come in are Clear, Emphatically Blonde (soft muted beige-taupe), Toasted Blonde (dirty blonde), Red Chestnut (gold brown with gold shimmer), Quiet Brunette (muted mid-tone grey brown), Bold Brunette (muted blackish brown) and Brown Ebony (asphalt black).
Dirty Blonde is a warm-toned taupe. I really wish is was cooler because for me, it’s too warm.
Deep Dark Brunette is a dark, cool-toned brown. Too dark for me but it’s nice and cool looking.
Bold Brunette is a very dark brown.
Overall: So yes, these do hold up to water and sweat rather nicely. I can scratch my eyebrow and not worry that a big chunk of color will then be missing, which is nice. I have only seen these particular shades in person but have an inkling they will (mostly) be too warm-toned for me. The general consensus I have gotten from people is they want cool-toned eyebrows. Some companies don’t seem to catch onto that unfortunately. I am interested in checking out Quiet Brunette Brow Set though because they describe it as a “grey brown” which might be nice and cool-toned.
Do you care about a waterproof brow formula in the sweltering summer months?
