FREEDOM Eyebrow Pomade Review

So were talkin' eyebrows...

This is my 2nd pot of the Freedom Brown Pomade and feel quite caught up on how this little pot of putty holds up to brow shaping and framing. 


1. Price

Previously £5.00 but now currently £2.50 on Revolutions Website. 

2. Colour Range 

Only 3 shades to offer (i believe due to the possible discontinuing maybe?)

Granite - Black (could be used as an eyeliner)
Chocolate - Dark Brown (My current shade)
Caramel Brown - A few shades lighter than chocolate (could work for a dark blonde) 

 3. Packaging

When purchased, your pomade arrives in a cute little cardboard box to then show your pomade in a compact, glass/plastic pot. Upon many times using, the writing can start to fade, but considering how many times my paws use this stuff, no wonder!

4. Formula

That first touch with your eyebrow brush of choice will feel a lot easier than the next few uses. After the first dip and the first layer removed, the product becomes a bit more stubborn, which means less slippage on the ol' brows. It's not super hard that you can't pick up any on your brush, but thick enough to not allow a messy application. 

After a while using the pomade you will notice it getting drier and drier, at this stage, each time before using i spritz a little setting spray to the pot to emulsify the product a touch. 

5. Application.

Thanks to the formula, you are able to glide the product onto your brow at your own pace. 
I've tried other brow products where you need to act fast before it dries up or conversely, have it practically dripping off my brow. This is a happy medium, I am able to glide the pomade onto my brow with applying a smooth application from the front to the tail end. 

It's also easy to clean up, if your hand slips and it ends up on your nose, no problemo, a quick wipe with a cotton pad or lets face it your finger (so much easier) and it's gone. 

6. Longevity.

If you were to wipe your fingers across your brows mid afternoon just after a yawn, chances are your gonna be one brow down. It's not glue, but it doesn't move with sweat and rain. Just as long as you try to go gentle when touching them, your going to be safe with your brows lasting as long as you need them too. 

7. Feel.

When applied to the brows, there's no tacky, sticky, heavy, clumpy feeling thank goodness!

8. Amount of Product. 

With 2.5g it lasts bloooooooomin ages!!
I had my first pot for 2 years+ and had to part ways when spritzing with setting spray didn't moisten it enough for me. Sad times. 

Where can it be purchased?

Right here on Revolutions website

Anything similar?

Although never tried, i believe the most similar if not same product has now been released under Revolutions brand name, with loads more shade options which you can find here  for £5-£6. 

Would I purchase again?

Absolutely. Although i have a faint feeling FREEDOM as a brand has submerged into Revolution so maybe there's going to be one day in the future i'll no longer be able to get my hands on it! 
*my brows go into meltdown*


Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read my post and can't wait to chat soon!

Love, Emilie xx

Journalling Ideas: What are 3 new hobbies you would like to enjoy?

Image from Pinterest 

1. Swimming. 

I all for it. Since the gyms have reopened, i'm considering getting on sports direct and ordering myself a waterproof swim hat and some swimming shoes. It's getting serious :O I love the idea of swimming as exercise. To me, it's so different to what i normally do working out and feels fun and before you know it your out of breath and you have ACTUALLY exercised. 

The only thing that has put me off in the past is these 3 things:

- i'm not a strong swimmer. The only way i can get better is to get going!

- All the faff of getting ready in a squished cubicle with wet hair. Hence the waterproof cap idea. I know i might look like i have all the gear and no idea but if it saves me having to wash my hair and damage it with the chlorine then on that hat goes. 

- Winter = cold. Coming out of the baths with wet hair, a damp body because i'm usually in a rush to get home and showered at this point and freezing! This coming winter i have a super thick coat so that will conquer the cold and my swim hat yet again is just becoming more and more a good idea!

2. Knitting. 

My mother and auntie in law are huge knitters and they are always inspiring me to have a go at it. They have given me needles, wool and motivation but i always start. stop. start. stop. I've got some amazing dark grey wool in my wardrobe that i would love to make a chunky scarf for the autumn winter. I love that i could produce something to wear with my own 2 hands and what are practically chop sticks.

3. Ariel and Pole Dancing

I want to act like i'm in a circus show and twissle around some ribbon. I would imagine it would need some core strength and i could only imagine what strength you would build too!

Pole dancing is always something i've loved the look of. I've heard it's AMAZING exercise and again, with it including dancing and technique, i'd be concentrating so much on that, not noticing session by session my 6 pack is forming! 

Journalling Ideas: What are 3 things you are grateful for today?

1. The view. 

As i sit here typing these words, i can turn to my left and see trees.
Louis Armstrongs - Trees of green will no doubt be stuck in my head for the foreseeable day, but instead of red roses, i can see a peep of lavender hydrangeas. 

I've been trying to google the correct same of the hugeee trees I can see beside me but instead of finding the exact word, i'm going to describe it as a MASSIVE Christmas tree...
You can see where the past few days of sunshine has scorched some of the ever green leaves but to me, it adds more depth, more of an autumnal look which i love. 

2. My new favourite app... Alarmy. 

One of my favourite videos to watch on youtube is morning routines. Especially if i feel in a slump with my own, i find watching these types of videos give me inspiration. One of the videos i watched a gorgeous lady Lyn Allure, shared she has used this app for years and has been the main help to get her up early. 

It's a free app, you can set your alarm just like normal but you can choose to do certain tasks before you can stop it. I opt out of the snooze option and have swapped it for a memory game, maths solutions or to even take a picture of a barcode from a recipe book in my kitchen. Before i know it, my mind has been given a task to forget about snoozing the alarm and so far it's really helping me to wake up early to seize my day. This morning for example, i was awake and out of bed for 7:30 which is VERY unusual for me. 

3. I get to see my mom today.

YAY! I try and see my mom at least once a week. I hop on the bus for about a 20 minute journey and we spend the day together. The past few weeks we have been organising her garage thats filled with YEARS worth of our family stuff. The Marie Kondo in me has loved it! 

Today, i'm going to do a little more organising with her but mainly help her put the last piece of wallpaper up in her living room to make it complete. 

I wasn't able to visit during lockdown for reasons we all know why. But now, i had no doubt who was going to be the first person in my bubble. My beautiful mommy bear. She is my best friend and to not be able to physically see her for months, like so many others was so so hard. But now, i am so grateful she is a bus journey away and we can spend a lovely day together. 

Journalling Ideas: What do you love most about your life?

The people who are in it. 

I could have been born into another family, at a different time, in another country opposites sides of the world from where i am now. In another century... and yet here i am. Here i am in 2020 with my family that consist of a number of uncles, aunties, cousins, 2nd cousins, great aunties, my mom, a husband, brothers, sisters in laws, nieces, nephews, not forgetting all the furry animals in my life and each one of them is someone who i love. Friends who you may as well include as family, friend of friends, friends of family members who we see once a year at Christmas gatherings. All of these people i have a connection with. 

I was thinking the other day of different kinds of love you have for people. Friends for example. You meet them sometimes super randomly, sometimes through other friends you have and you build a connection, a friendship from scratch. You make that connection of love from the relationship you have. I was looking at that difference to those of family members. Do you just love them or SAY you love them because they are related? Because they have came into your life through someone else you know? Are you expected to just love them let alone LIKE them?

For me, personally. I feel like the love i have for my family members is a natural instinct. For blood relatives alone, i feel an instant connection with them. We share the same cells & DNA so how could I not feel an instant connection with them. Do i just love my brothers because they are my brothers? No. Similar to friends, i have obviously grew up with them and learnt things about them that have made me fall in love with them, but at the same time, if i had spent zero time with them over the years, i believe i still would have this undeniable love for them. A solid connection that we are related, we are bonded for life. 

I have just also realised whilst re-reading this back, that one of the many reasons of this natural instinct is because we can see a lot of ourselves in them. I can see physical and emotional traits like that of myself. My eldest brother nick. The way he presents himself and the things he says mirrors so much to me. Simon, his humour and emotions are so a-like with mine it's crazy. 
They might see this differently when they look at me and each other. But that's my perception. That's one of the reasons i have based my love for them. You feel instantly connected and attached to someone who is like to yourself. You know you will get on with them a lot easier than someone whose completely opposite... more than likely. 
You spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with yourself, your soul and mind. Someone who shows even a slightest little similarity to you, it's a little spark that pings from your heart saying, your a little like me. Your my squishy :') (Any Finding Nemo lovers, high 5)
That connection has been made. 

I cannot believe when i look at my life. How many collections i have in my friendship and family real life album. When i think about each and everyone of them and why and how we have this bond, it astounds me. 

 My life has been capable of finding these people, naturally or randomly. That's what i love the most. That's what truly makes me happy. 

P.s I cannot forget how to mention one of the most loved drinks in my life for currently 26 and a half years... a hot cup of tea. x
