Smitten by ABH’s long-wearing, pigmented, and budge-proof formula? L’Oreal’s Brow Artist Pomade will be right up your alley. Its smooth, creamy consistency is just as naturally pigmented with great lasting power. But what really sets it apart is its gorgeous, travel-friendly packaging.

All-day wear for brows? Seems like a mighty big promise for a place that’s perpetually hot and humid… But okay, we’ll bite. After all, Ofra’s Eye Brow Gel does claim to be both semi-permanent and waterproof. So, how does the creamy matte gel measure up? Well, based on a tried-and-test trip to the gym and a quick look at the reviews, we can definitely say that the creamy matte gel formula is sweat-proof and budge-proof—just like your good ol’ Dipbrow! With a formula like that, no wonder why it’s earned itself a 4.6-star rating.
