My top three eyebrow products
I love various eyebrow enhancers but there are only three that I have been consistently using since I opened them. These are the most reliable ones - the ones that match any look I throw at them, that receive the most compliments. They're also foolproof when it comes to application. Even if my eyebrows look like a hairy hot mess, these three eyebrow heroes make them look neat and polished! All day.
I raved about the Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow pencil in 09 Walnut Brown last July 2011. Wow, it's been that long? I knew this pencil was a keeper but I didn't know it was going to be so literal. I shit you not I'm not even halfway through this one, after a year and a half of continuous abuse. :P I'm glad I shelled out the P1,400 even though it's the most expensive pencil I've come across so far.
I love how soft and natural this pencil looks when applied. It's nice to wear when I want to look "mabait", if you know what I mean!
The Review and tutorial: the K-Palette Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow is another long-standing favorite. There's much to love about it, but its best feature for me is the precision of the brush. Imagine brows ungroomed and wild for weeks. Imagine a pen that can make them look shaped instantly. That's what the Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow does!
While the Shu Uemura pencil is great for everyday whats-its this K-Palette pen is perfect for shoots and events. It can define brows however you prefer them, but it never appears too thick or unnatural.
Ahhh, and this is my preferred finishing touch. The Majolica Majorca Brow and Lash Colorist in BR555 just slightly lightens my brows and keeps them in place all day. It's waterproof, so no sweat can make it budge from the eyebrow hair. I love the tiny brush as it makes application easier and more precise.
I don't use this alone since it's still reddish for me, but it's ideal on top of some darker pencil/pen just to keep the hair in one direction.
So there you go! What brow product/s shall you take to your grave?
