What the pluckin' pluck...


Hi ladies,
Ah, to be a writer. I believe someone needs to change the job title to "procastinator." Because for me, three/fourths of writing a book is easily tied up in cruising my DVR, browsing my book shelf, and taking I-photo's of myself. Lately, however, when I procastinate, I pluck. I went overboard just before the holidays, totally Edward Scissorhand-ing my poor brows until I was left with two sad, Pamela Anderson-looking arches that have yet to forgive me. The next morning, I emailed all my beauty contacts, desperate for some sort of remedy. I was sent a flurry of brow-thickening doo-hickies, but I settled on Anastasia NuBrow Brow Enhancing Serum ($35). I picked NuBrow because it was dreamed up by the legendary brow GENIUS, Anastasia (pronounced Ahhnahhstahhsya), but I was totally skeptical. The colorless gel-brow formula is supposed to stimulate hair growth while slowing down hair loss, restoring thin, over-plucked brows to their former fullness in 4-6 weeks (most take months and months). Whatever, but I tried it anyway. And I'm still in shock. The Nu Brow is tingly-good MAGIC! I wish I'd taken a before picture so you ladies could see how quickly and efficiently my abused brows returned! Which is a godsend, because I secretly LOATHE eyebrow pencils (they're fine in moderation, but my situation was so dire I had to physically draw my brows on every morning). Overpluckers everywhere need to embrace the NuBrow..now!
xoxo,
Tia

Tia, thanks so much for this advice I am going to pass it along to my sister. She was complaining about her brows this weekend.

Have a wonderful day!

OMG I had to write an article for a local newspaper and waited the night before. I thought it was just me who procrastinated!! I was talking on the phone, looking at pages on myspace and facebook... everything but writing an article. But sometimes I think my best work comes out when I am close to the deadline.

Do you think that eyebrow serum will work on my eyelashes? I have very little of them...

Thanks Tia bo bia! :)

I'm curious about this product, would have loved to see pictures... When I'm grooming eyebrows the biggest problem is people over tweezing!

I always rush out and buy every thing you recommend! You are truly a Beauty-god-mother. Is there any thing you can advise for long but thinning lashes? How about for oily skin (aside from the blot papers)? P.S. can we expect a return from "Joanne" any time soon? She's my idol!

I am with the crew asking about eyelash help. All my life people have said "you're eyelashes are amazing, how did they get so long, and blahblahblah" That is when I was doing nothing to them. Then I started just curling, then I started using mascara and now I have these short stubby things! Awful, and not sexy! So if you know anything please share.

I love this too!! My brows have been god awful ever since 1993 and my Madonna phase. This literally saved my brows.

Anything more than a clean up and I run back to the waxer because I can really break my brows down with a set of tweesers.

here's another handy trick i learned from (elke v.f.) when we exfoliate our faces, we tend to skip over the eye area because of the sensitive skin.. fine, but don't forget the exfoliate the eyebrows. she says it works all of the time for her clients, removing the dead skin cells,etc, stunting the slow hair growth. recently, my fav brow girl has been saying no to my waxing appts, but to let my brows grow in. i said fine, did the exfoliation of the brows for a few weeks. when i went back to the brow tech, i was ready!

I heard Castor Oil works just as well. Give it a try, Tia!

I tried this and it didn't do a thing for me?

Maybe I've been plucking at my brows too long...

Wow, this product didn't work for me at all! Perhaps it's because I've always had thin eyebrows as opposed to overplucking. Hmmm, do you know of anything that might help women whose eyebrows are naturally thin? Like a Rogaine for eyebrows?
