At Byrdie, we're known to look for great beauty advice in offbeat places, and Reddit is one of our regulars. From Redditors, we've learned that you can use cocoa powder as dry shampoo, eye shadow as bronzer, and nipple cream as lip balm. (Oh, the internet.) But currently, we are most excited about a Reddit post from the Makeup Addiction thread from a user named RageSlaya76 (which is an amazing handle, we just need to say).
Yesterday, Ms. Slaya76 posted a photo of her brows before using a $7 product that you never hear much buzz about, but it offered an amazing result that has Redditors flipping. Keep scrolling to discover the cheap brow product everyone on Reddit is talking about.
"I think I might have found a new favorite brow product," RageSlaya76 wrote to accompany the photo above, which features her barely there brows suddenly transformed into soft, natural arches. The miracle product? Ardell's Brow Pomade, which I have actually tried myself and can attest has many of the qualities that people love in Anastasia Beverly Hills' iconic DipBrow: Ardell's drugstore product is easy to manipulate, smudge-proof, and available in a variety of shades for easy color matching. (It also comes with a decent brush, which is rare.) The results above speak for themselves.
(By the way, if you're as curious as many other Redditors were, RageSlaya76's lip color in the photo above is thanks to Milani's Amore Mattes Lip Crème in Obsession, $6.)
