I have tried 3 eyebrow products ever since I started doing my brows. First one is a powder type which I forgot what brand since my grandma gave that to me with faded packaging. Next was an Everbilena eyebrow pencil, the one with a white packaging. This was my partner through thick and thin when I was in college. I never tried any more brands, just me and her against the world. Lastly and now, I'm using a MAC retractable pencil which I think is in the shade Stud. I actually got this a year ago as a gift from my boyfriend. Ever since, I never bought any eyebrow product. Well, talk about being an eyebrow fanatic, but not even once hoarded on eyebrow products.
I really love this product since it is long lasting. It is also sweat-proof. It stays on my brows for such a long time good enough to not retouch the whole time that I am in the office. It even covers the cow lick on my right brows. If you're into the long-staying power of an eyebrow product like me, then you're good to go with this eyebrow pencil. It promises that it is also water-proof so you don't have to worry rain dripping on your brows. Just make sure you don't wipe on it.
As for the color, my boyfriend got me the Stud which is spot-on with the shade of hair I have since then. If you have black to dark brown hair color, I recommend you getting the Stud shade. It has a deep rich blackened brown shade which I love because it doesn't overpower my hair color. (Tip: if you have a dark hair, stick to an eyebrow shade which is lighter than your hair color. Then, if you have a light hair, stick to a darker shade of eyebrow)
Because of my love for this eyebrow pencil, I am really saving this product. I don't do my eyebrows everyday that's why I get to have this for a year now. Plus, the product is pigmented enough to give color on my brows without giving you a very awkward thickness. A little effort goes a long way with this product actually. Another thing, I'm not a fan of the retractable type. One con of this is I don't get to see how many more of the product I have left to use. So I'll not be surprised if someday I'll be shocked that I'm out of it. How I wish I did both my brows already the time this will be out. Also, I tend to snap the pencil if I get to overdo the twist of this eyebrow pencil. Well, easy gliding comes with a price. Because it tends to be soft and easy to apply, comes how brittle it actually is. So another tip for you, don't overdo the twisting and stick to a small amount of product peeping through the pencil itself.
- Easy to glide
- Color is not overpowering
- Little amount of the product goes a long way
- Long-lasting (Can cover long office hours)
- Brittle product
Here's a little MOTD for you. Usually, this is my go-to makeup look in the office plus the brows and the different kinds of lipstick shade depending on the mood:
Will I repurchase this product? Hell yes! I'm thinking though of finding an alternative for me to try since I really want to venture on to different brands of make-up.
