NYX Micro Brow Pencil + Benefit Gimme Brow Gel
The NYX Micro Brow Pencil is already a long-standing crowd favourite not just because it serves as a great dupe for some higher end brow pencils but also because its slim and precise tip gives perfect control. It leaves no room for overdrawing, making it a preferred option for both beginners and experts. Sharing the same status would be the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel, whose volumising attributes made it a much-coveted beauty product since day one of its release. They are products that are proven to perform well both on their own and when complementing another product. But how do they fare together?
Beauty OTP Rating: 8.5/10
A match made in brow heaven? Almost! It's no coincidence that these two are crowd favourites. But together, they deliver a whole new level of fleek-ness. Not only can they fill in empty gaps and spots in between brow hairs with great precision, but these two combined also delivers the most natural-looking arches that won't budge or smudge no matter what your plans are for the day. However, we feel like this power couple works best for those with a fair amount of brow hairs to begin with.
Maybelline Strobing Cream + The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer
Cream and liquid highlighters are not that easy to get right because they have the tendency to clump up or look streaky on top of your base, but Maybelline must know a magic trick or two. The brand's Strobing Cream gives the perfect wet-slash-dewy buildable highlight finish that melts onto your makeup seamlessly. And since we're talking about getting a gorgeous glow, it's no secret that The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer is one of the most top-rated highlighters in almost all beauty platforms and for good reason. From its soft and velvety texture to its champagne shade that looks divine on almost all skintones, it's no wonder why this pick has its own fanbase. Will this pair be the saving grace of our beauty OTP quest?
Beauty OTP Rating: 10/10
Alone, they're gorgeous. But together, they're bordering on ethereal with a stunningly blinding glow. The combination of cream and powder fused together melts onto the skin beautifully without emphasising any texture or making the skin look oily. The cream also helped extend the powder's longevity, preventing the highlight to fade throughout a day's wear. We're totally stanning this match-up!
