After being a brow pencil loyalist since forever, I lastly tried my very first brow cream — new Becca shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse ($25).
I’ve always avoided brow creams (and mousses, pomades, etc.) since I was afraid they’d be super thick as well as make me look like Burt’s long lost sister, however I’m a significant fan of Becca products, so I was cautiously optimistic when I tried this one.
Shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse is available in a bit pot with a waxy brow color on one side as well as a shimmery highlight creme on the other. It’s offered in three shades — Cocoa (for light-medium hair), cafe (for medium hair) as well as Mocha (for medium-dark hair). Here’s a better look at Cocoa as well as Mocha.
First, the brow color side of these feels quite firm to the touch however quickly blends into my brows, while the highlight color is rather creamy as well as sticky. As you may be able to see from the top picture, the highlight side isn’t firm at all, as well as when I went to swatch Cocoa (on the left), I left a significant dent in it (oops!).
I didn’t have any type of issues with wear time (both sides last all the time long), however I did find that, for me, utilizing this brow mousse is more included as well as a bit messier than brow pencils as well as brow gels.

Here are swatches of two of the colors (Cocoa as well as Mocha):
Cocoa is a cool-toned grayish brown quite close to my skin color however definitely as well light for me to utilize in my brows. Its accompanying “Arch Defining Creme” (highlighter) is the exact same color as the one that accompanies Mocha, as well as it looks much peachier in this swatch than it does on my face. In fact, I believe it looks subtle on me as well as assists to define my brows nicely.
As for Mocha, it’s a warm-toned brown. since my hair is jet black, I wondered at very first if it would be as well light for me, however it really worked! I believe that being lighter it provides my brows a softer look as well as assists me prevent the look of super intense brows.
Here’s a step-by-step on exactly how I utilize Becca shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse:
Step 1 — I clean my brows up utilizing a disposable spoolie.
Step 2 — I utilize an angled brow clean (MAC 266) as well as a truly light hand to trace a thin line of wax under my eyebrows.
I’ve always utilized this clean for eyeliner, so it felt weird at very first to utilize it in the method it was really meant to be used!
Step 3 — then I utilize the same disposable spoolie to softly clean the wax with my brows, as well as I do one brow each time to make sure I blend each brow before the product sets.
Step 4 — Then I utilize my sound finger to dab a small bit of the highlighter cream right under my arches, and I use very bit of the cream (about the size of a grain of rice) since I’m not trying to look like a ‘90s R&B star with a super frosty highlighter.
I like the method it looks, however I believe on skin tones darker than mine, it may be a bit ashy.
Here’s the completed product with a bit more makeup (I was heading to work after doing this).
As you can see, the Arch Defining Creme is light, however I believe it looks quite great here. On lighter skin tones, it’ll be more subtle as well as will most likely look gorgeous. It has a bit of sheen to it, however it’s not as well frosty or glittery.
I like that my brows stay put all the time as well as don’t smudge at all, which is something I always concern about with brow products.
If you like utilizing brow creams, inspect it out, since it’s a truly nice formula if you can discover a color that works for you.
