The Estee Lauder Double Wear line is gold. It features the brand's longest-wearing products, which are a godsend in our humid tropical weather! I have the new pan concealer and it's quite reliable for all-day affairs. But that's a review for another day. Today I want to talk about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Brow Lift Duo (P1,000+), an excellent double-ended pencil for perfect, understated eyebrows.
If you liked my eyebrows in my recent looks, this is what I had on! At first I was unconvinced about the shades - the brown end looked very faint in the swatches while the champagne is almost invisible. But once they're on my brows all I can say is, much wow! This is my current fave brow product. <3 I am aware I have A LOT but I can't help it! I'm particular about my eyebrows and I get a high whenever I discover new products for them.
Have a look!
Left is Soft Brown, right is Highlight
The Soft Brown needs to be built up to get this kind of (mild) pay-off, but I'm not complaining. Less pigmented brow products are the best for getting soft brows. I do perhaps two layers, the first one to shade the area and the second just to add more in places where I have gaps.
The Highlight color stumped me in the beginning. It didn't seem like it does anything. But when I appied it to highlight (as in the diagram on my brows above) I noticed that my brows popped! I dislike using that word but there it is. That's the effect I get. It's subtle but you'll notice how my brows look more framed, defined, and higher.
As promised, this product stays on all day! It doesn't smear or fade. ^_^ I guess the only downside is that since it has a creamy texture, it's used up quickly. With that price tag I wished it could give me a lower cost-per-wear.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Brow Lift Duo if you like soft, highlighted brows that you can't possibly mess up. It simplifies the brow shading and highlighting process since the two shades are perfect for whatever your brow shape or hair color is.
What I like most about it is that I don't need to mix colors anymore or set my brows with a mascara. The waxy texture keeps the hair in place and keeps it there all day. The price can be a deterrent, yes, but it's really up to you on how much you want to spend in getting beautiful kilay. Haha. What do you think?
