There’s one drugstore product that I’ve been using for probably 15 years. I buy it in bulk and throw it in every single purse I own. My favorite thing about it other than the low price is that it solves not one, but two of my beauty dilemmas.
Clear mascara! I literally can’t leave home without it for two reasons.
- Eyebrow gel- The hairs in my eyebrows for some reason grow down not up. No matter how much I wipe them up with my fingers they just go back down. I started using clear mascara to keep my eyebrows in place before any other eyebrow gel existed. Not only is it cheaper, but it works way better. I got a sample of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel ($22) and it just didn’t hold my eyebrows in place at all. Covergirl’s formula is so much stronger and keeps them in perfect place. Sometimes I’ll put too much and it can look shiny or get a little crunchy, but all you have to do is use a spoolie brush to spread it out. It’s a game changer for my brows. My brows can get disheveled if I’m sweating which is easy to do in this Texas heat so I throw it in my purse for a quick fix.
- Flyaways- THIS IS HANDS DOWN MY BEST KEPT BEAUTY SECRET. I told a friend to use clear mascara to tame her flyaways and she said it literally changed her life 😂 I actually discovered this trick by accident. One day years ago I was using my clear mascara for my brows and I had these terrible flyaways as I usually do and I just subconsciously took the wand and brushed the flyaways with it. I was shocked to see not only did it work, but it was the best product to get rid of flyaways I’d ever tried. Every hair product I’ve ever used has either not fixed the problem at all or it did temporarily, but then turned my roots into a greasy mess. Like with my eyebrows it can look shiny if I use too much so I’ll just rub it in with my fingers. Since it doesn’t make my hair greasy, I keep it in my purse for touch-ups. Buy it here and change your life 😉
