New Eye Brows Gels: Laura Mercier, Trish McEvoy and Benefit

I was getting my nails day done the other day, and my manicurist and I started talking how brows are a big thing these days, and they so are! I remember even 5 years ago very few brands had special eye brow products but now every brand does at least one type of an eye brow product. And I have written about so many new releases already, but here are even more.

Laura Mercier and Trish McEvoy release eye brow gels, and Benefit actually brought out a huge collection just for brows, let’s take a look.

SS15 Makeup: Gel Eye Liners in a Pen Form

Being a huge fan of eye liners (this is my favourite), I am happy to see new ones coming out. And it seems like angled gel, long-lasting eye liners in a “pen” form are the thing now. I have selected three options, and since I haven’t tried any – I’ve included official descriptions.
