GOSH Long Lasting Brow Pen in 004 Wheat: review, swatches and FOTD

Hey ladies,

Hope you're well :-)

So let's talk eyebrows! I fill mine in pretty much every day, whether it's with a brow pencil, pen or powder eyeshadow. I think it makes a big difference when they're filled in as they frame your face. Of course, I've made some eyebrow faux-pas in the past - mainly filling them in too dark!

I'm still on the hunt for my Holy Grail eyebrow product and recently I've been using GOSH's Long Lasting Brow Pen in Wheat, as recommended by Holly (Yummy Mummy's Beauty Blog).
Comparion swatches:

MAC Eyebrows in Lingering

GOSH Long Lasting Brow Pen in 004 Wheat

MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Dirty Blonde

As you can see, it has more of grey undertone to it than MAC Lingering - which is pretty much my go-to brow shade! It also makes MAC Dirty Blonde pencil look really orange, which it isn't.


Eyebrows before and after applying Gosh Brow Pen in Wheat:

I liked the effect of the pen, I think it looked really natural and the colour was a pretty good match. Applying it was a little odd as it's not what I'm used to but it did fill in every last stroke.

The colour did last on my brows all day but randomly, and I've not read this before, the shade turned a little green as the day went on! A couple of people spotted it to me which was slightly embarrassing...

Here's how it looked with the rest of my make-up...

You can probably see the green-ish tint to my eyebrows in the above pic, random huh?!
