TL;DR:

An easy-to-apply powder that adds volume and definition to eyebrows

I am admittedly the type of person who presses the "snooze" button at least twice each morning before getting up. Typically, I work remotely in my pajamas until I finally will myself to become presentable enough so that I can head into the Allure offices. All this is to say, I often have to rush through my early a.m. routine. As much as I love the ritual of carefully applying beauty products, the beginning of the day entails quite a bit of scrambling — which is why I love time-saving items like CoverGirl's 3-in-1 brow powder. In one fell swoop, it can fill in sparse spots, define the shape, and add a bit of hold so my brows look lovely all day long.

Here's how I use this multitasking makeup: I dip the thin, spongey applicator into the powder formula and shake it off a bit to remove excess product, same as you might for a translucent powder or blush. Then I lightly tap it into my brow, starting at the inner part (the section toward the bridge of my nose) and using quick strokes as I follow my brow's natural shape, gradually moving out toward the tip. If there are any gaps, I go back and add a small amount of powder at a time to fill them in. That's it, and then I'm totally set with my brows for the day in less than 30 seconds. And when I say "for the day," I mean it: On more than one occasion, I applied this powder around 9:30 in the morning and it was still on by the time I left work around 6 or 7 p.m.

Not only does this pick from CoverGirl deliver realistic-looking results to those who aren't as comfortable with most brow-filling techniques such as pomade or pencil, it is accessible even to beauty lovers on a tight budget. At just $9 a pop, it's a high-quality option that won't leave folks feeling guilty for dropping (another) paycheck on products.
