Based on Sephora reviews it hit 4.7 stars out 5 (just like the competitor) and is vegan and cruelty-free. Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade is here to stay!

I decided to write a little post about my new favorite brow product and a little video opening of the Influenster Vox Box and my first impressions.

Just to let you know, I received Kat Von D brow pomade and brow #70 brush complimentary for testing purposes in my Influenster Vox Box shortly after the product came out (during the testing I will be using the shade ‘Taupe’ and that’s the color you will see on the photos and the video)

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade Overall Impressions:

  • Perfect for high impact activities like intense working out
  • Vacation and high humidity climate proof
  • Showerproof
  • Pillow proof and toss and turn sleeper proof
  • My new essential and must have
  • Your routine will have to include immediate brush clean
  • Buildable coverage

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade in-depth notes and testing:

My brow routine has always been a big part of my makeup routine and I don’t usually leave my house without my brows defined. I have tried a lot of colors and products. And I have noticed that people around me tend to like taupe shades better than soft brown or light brown shades. I remember reaching out to pick darker shade before in Sephora store and the makeup artist was like: ‘Oh, no, no, no! You are taupe!’ So ever since I started going taupe I started noticing people around me started to react significantly friendlier when I wore lighter shades.

So during the survey before receiving it I had picked Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade in ‘Taupe’ shade (crossed my fingers and hoped it will be not too light).

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade Texture

When I opened the jar and tied it on my wrist I have noticed how highly pigmented it was and I immediately wondered if will look natural. It pleasantly surprised me it did not break apart. Its creamy texture was almost mesmerizing and easy to work with. I also have noticed it dries not too fast not to slow. I think it pretty good drying speed.

The product came out on April 20th, 2018 and totally stole the brow game. Some pomades have very flat colors which result in very unnatural very comic looking brows (and the last thing you want is your friends and colleagues chat about your new brow look fail behind your back lol).

We all want that multidimensional color because a lot of us draw our brows outside of its shape for more dramatic effect.

Kat Von D Super Brow not only delivered great natural color, but I also did not notice a significant difference in texture between pomade over hair vs pomade on the skin (I draw mine a little bit further to have to open up my eye). When the pomade dried out it became even more natural looking and velvety.

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade Ingredients:

Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade is vegan and cruelty-free, so I did not feel bad about using it and repurchasing it later. So it will be no guilt product.

How to choose your perfect shade for your brows?

Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade has 7 natural shades to pick from and 9 artistry shades. You can see from the chart below and it’s provided for you during the websites during purchase.

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade 24-Hour Promise Test

Previously I had pretty high-end products I had to ditch all of them during the summertime because in Florida humidity they all failed me and smudged, smeared and some of them broke up on my skin.

Honestly… I thought it would be too much and why one needs that kind of performance. Also before I was going to test it for 24 hours I was absolutely positive I will break out afterward. But decided to take one for the team.

It withstood 6 hours outside with extreme humidity, followed up by the shower. Next day from chill house to outside scorching hot humid air, running errands day and maintained the same texture and shape smudge proof.

No breaking up or breaking out happened after 24 hour wears after weeks of using the product.

There was no trace of pomade on the pillow and I am a side sleeper toss and turn 45-degree taking over entire bed kind of person lol.

Be ready for ‘I woke up like this’ triumph moment in the morning lol.

Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade: Impressions From Others

I really was blown by the compliment I receive from wearing the Kat Von D Pomade. I was told that I have supermodel brows (hehe thanks, I’ll take it!) and that my brow game is really on point recently.

Kat Von D Pomade Brow Brush #70 Performance:

I used to use eyeliner brushes all the time (for precision) I found that dedicated #70 Pomade Brow Brush delivered extreme precision and control when it came to application. If you are pretty new to brow brushes it may seem pretty stiff (the first impression, but don’t be fooled by how firm it seems to be). The very edges are very flexible and super precise. Even with the absence of any skills, it is easy to shape up the brows, just make sure you remain symmetrical. It worked well with the stencils and tiny-tiny corners and super precise angles and edges were more than on point. So embrace complete creative freedom! Shape and sculpt away!

The bristles are cruelty-free and synthetic.

I received the Pomade Brow Brush #70 as a free sample.

The only thing I have noticed. You have to clean it right away when you are done or it will be super stiff next day. I have found the best way to clean it is to just wipe it against the wet makeup removal wipe until you got rid of all of the pigment. It will take a little minute because the product is pigmented, but adding that to your routine is a small price to pay for 24-hour perfection.

Final Thoughts:

It has become my new favorite brow routine essential and I use it all the time. It gives me more freedom and flexibility in my day. I’m ready for whatever and I get to carry a makeup bag so I can touch up my makeup, but brows are on fleek more matter what.

Is Venus Gillette Platinum Razor For You?

Whether shaving is not part of your routine or not, you still need a dependable razor for SOS days, you need it on the go. There is always that transitioning phase where you just can’t use anything but shaving.

As for me, I live in Florida and Florida living gets intense… humidity, pools, boating, overheated cars during hot temperatures and spring hot-cold days!

You need a great razor or you will get stuck with a pants day on an accidentally hot day in the middle of spring.

So let’s talk Venus Gillette Platinum performance.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Style

Finally, Venus Gillette created something more elegant and classy, although shaving is supposed to be fun (hence all the fun colors).

Style has changed over the years and I feel in the times of rose gold, chrome and yellow gold elements with marble everything these days there is a need for some luxury looking razor that screams style.

If I am leaving it on the counter, I don’t want all those colors to pop like I’m in teenager’s bathroom. So Venus Gillette THANK YOU for something I can leave out on the counter next to my boyfriend’s high-end stuff and not to look tacky and ‘teenagie’.

Maybe one day you can create a luxury high-end edition. There is a market for it for sure. 

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Efficiency

Efficiency: I am very active and quite fit and defined, a big part of my style is athleisure (athletic and leisure clothing) so leggings and skinny jeans are a big part of my wardrobe.

 Whether I am wearing an organic cotton leggings or synthetic I don’t want anything to poke through it, so I have to rely on quite an efficient razor, so I don’t have to have a time-consuming inspection of my legs.

I have noticed that 5 razor blades tend to do the job. If time management is a big concern of yours 5 razor blade is more efficient and more trustworthy (perfectionists can rejoice now).

Metal elements on the handle added not only style but also a sense of control and certainty to the movement. I have noticed the additional weight of the razor felt unusual at first but felt more smooth and more balanced during shaving.

A lot of people expected a full metal handle and were left disappointed that it had plastic elements, too. Personally, I feel like it was a good amount of both.

Lifting Venus Gillette Platinum razor left me feeling a little bit nostalgic due to heavier metal elements. It reminded me of my Dad’s vintage razors for a second or two.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Navigation

Metal part reduced pulling and glided better than just plastic alternatives. I wasn’t sure whether I liked the plastic elements on it at first.

But once I started shaving I realized that they were essential to the grip in-control feeling during the shave.

Venus Gillette Platinum razor navigated all the tricky places like kneecaps, behind the knees, back of the leg areas, ankles and underarm (my underarm is especially tricky), which was impressive. 

The head did not feel too large or awkward, its mobility was pretty impressive.

How long the results from Venus Gillette Platinum Razor last?

I would say the shave lasts two solid days (although if you shave a lot and you take hair vitamins and supplements it can sure alter the days your shave lasts). The third day was tolerable (although I would shave again that day). The fourth day felt okay, but I would change shorts for capris. Do shave on the fourth day.

For how long you can use Venus Gillette Cartridge? 

 

You can totally use the blades for several weeks. To prolong the life of the razor try to use it in cold or warm water.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Price

The price point around $8.99 with one refill or $12.99 with 2 refills.

Aluminum Free Deodorant That Works

safe deodorant natural deodorant deodorant healthy deodorant best natural deodorant all natural deodorant organic deodorant best deodorant deodorant without aluminum aluminum free deodorant best deodorant for women natural deodorant that works

An aluminum-free deodorant that works… Have you ever considered getting one?

If you haven’t ever my gorgeous reader, it’s time and here is why…

I came across this 😱😱😱 video not so long ago and I couldn’t help myself but share it with you.

I want you to pause everything you are doing and watch this shocking 😱💀 video. I hope you will find the time to watch it.

😡😤😠, right?

I was just seriously frustrated how we don’t know anything about it and how we all doing the things that “work just well” in our everyday life and never pay attention or never question our routines.

Noone wants to have a BO!

Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to smell bad or have a BO, but did I know that I’ve been paying a big price for it? Did I know the trade-off?

Question your routines!

I was just doing my own thing and never ever have I thought it could mess with my health… what if someone’s health has been compromised and they are harming themselves further and further without knowing it?

There is a lesson to be learned here: Question your routines! Make some changes to them and make them more mindful from now on.

In the end of the article, I am giving you the link to the one that REALLY likes!

But you might want to try different ones and it may take you some time to figure out exactly the aluminum-free deodorant that you would like.

So I was on a HUNT…

I wanted to find an aluminum-free deodorant that smells delicious and I wanted it to work!

Furthermore, I wanted it to be:

  • With 24-hour odor protection
  • With no chemical propellants
  • Only natural and/or organic ingredients
  • No animal testing
  • NO: Aluminum, Butane, Parabens, Phthalates or Artificial Fragrances

So I came across those ones, I tried them all and I personally recommend them.

You can buy them from Amazon and Jason Dry Spray Deodorant in Soft Rose smells like luxury perfume. It literally smells like roses and it really works!  I live in Florida and most of the time it’s way too hot so that’s my must have.
