I would like to think of myself as someone who has their crap together (I don’t, but let’s pretend I do). As I’ve had a few years of life tucked under my belt… I think I’m getting the hang of this adult thing. Part of being an adult is finding ways to save money. I was sifting through my muji drawers and found an eyebrow gel from a brand (that I really love) and wondering why I was paying over $20 for glorified hair gel, so I got an idea.
I was in my bathroom, which my brother also uses and where he leaves his grooming products. I saw this and thought “if eyebrow gel is overpriced hair gel, why not just use regular hair gel on my eyebrows ?” I put a little bit on a metal palette and got a clean spoolie and used it to set my eyebrows. THEY DID NOT MOVE ALL DAY. This entire hair gel costs a whopping $3 at Wal-Mart or Target.
Moco De Gorilla Punk Hair Gel ($2.50)
60ml Syringe & 6 Pipettes ($3.75)
Silver Mascara Tubes ($1.25)
You can find this in the ethnic beauty section (major eye roll, but whatever… it is what it is) usually towards the bottom. I ordered the mascara wand from tkbtrading.com but you can use an empty mascara wand, or apply some on the back of your hand, and then apply with a clean spoolie. I recommend buying the empty mascara wand, because it’s less messy. If you buy the mascara wand make sure you have a syringe to put the gel inside the tube. I was struggling with this gel trying to get inside the wand with a Ziploc bag. Don’t be like me.
