Oh My Brow! DB Designer Brands collection review (+giveaway)


Back in May Australian makeup company DB Designer Brands introduced a new brow collection. Our focus editors tested and (spoiler) loved it. Read the article to find out how you can WIN a creamy brow pomade and tinted brow gel!

Dee Collins: ‘The DB Brow Master Creamy Brow Pomade and Tinted Brow Gel landed on my desk a month ago and all I can say is, Wow! As the owner of sparse, lightly coloured eyebrows that fade into insignificance if they aren’t pampered and enhanced, I was super-impressed with both products.

My favourite though has to be the brow gel and I’m passing the word around. Initially I was concerned that I might accidentally wipe away an eyebrow during the day but this baby is longwearing and doesn’t smudge. No need for reapplication during the day as the combination of cream and gel means your eyebrows don’t look flaky or fade towards the end of the day. The brush applicator is super-easy to use and, after a few initial experimentations, I’m pleased to say that I am able to create realistic, hair-like, feathered strokes really quickly.

The product is easy to remove with makeup remover. No stress!

The fact that this product isn’t tested on animals, is vegan and a very affordable $12.99 is all a bonus. I’ll certainly include this product in my makeup arsenal for a long time to come.’

Kseniia Spodyneiko: ‘I LOVE wearing makeup. Foundation, eye liner, shimmer and contouring products have certainly secured their own space in my heart but all sorts of brow products will always be my favourite must-haves. Why? Because enhanced brows can do wonders to your face – they take years off your age, change your expression and even out your face shape.

Basically, the number of brow products in my makeup bag exceeds any reasonable limits so the competition for two newbies from DB Designer Brands to be included in my bag, was extremely high.

Being a long-time fan of brow pomades, I started with Brow Master and threw it right into the most difficult test out there – to cover up the scar on my left eyebrow. The creamy, non-oily formula pulled the task off with ease.

For natural, daily makeup, using the pomade is enough, but if you want more accent on the brow or a more impressive look overall, adding a touch of tinted brow gel is certainly a great idea. While the pomade adds volume and shape, the gel emphasises the colour of the brow hair, creates texture and keeps them in place. Perfect combo!’


Dee tried out the lightest, Taupe colour. Kseniia used the darkest, Chocolate. Keen to test the medium Hickory pomade and gel? You can win these products by joining our Instagram page. The giveaway starts on Monday, 10 September and will last til’ Friday, 14 September. Good luck!
