Comparing Brow Colors - Ben Nye and Make Up For Ever

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

When I reviewed Ben Nye in my previous post, some of you may have wondered about the differences or likenesses of the colors between these two lines.  In this post I will show you the comparisons.

In the first picture, I compare Ben Nye Taupe ($5USD)  to Make Up For Ever Aqua Brows  ($20USD) in #15 (blonde) and #25 (ash) which are the two darkest colors Sephora offers online.  They are about the same in pigment concentration.  MUFE #25 is darker and more of a neutral taupe while MUFE #15 is is close to Ben Nye with a slight warmer finish.

For the second set of swatches, I compared the old version of MUFE Aqua Brows which you can see a demo of hereBen Nye Dark Brown ($5USD) is shown at the top and you can see how it turns a bit red on my skin.  The MUFE #4  which is a dark brown shows up closer to the Ben Nye Black Brown ($5) pencil rather than the Dark Brown.

On white paper though, the comparisons are a bit different. 

Ben Nye Taupe
ends up more neutral compared to MUFE #15 and MUFE #25.  You can see more warmth in MUFE #15 which can be a problem for fair skin tones.  The old version of Make Up For Ever Waterproof Brow in #4 does look darker than Ben Nye Black Brown and more neutral than Ben Nye Dark Brown.

I do like the Make Up For Ever Aqua Brows for being sweat proof and waterproof but I do prefer the Ben Nye for the swift application and water resistant formula (when set with powder).  I do mix the two brands together to get a mix of texture and color which still looks natural.  I do prefer the MUFE #4 though because my brows are naturally dark. 

There you have the comparison of colors.  I hope this helped some of you.
