Hot and brow-dered
People come and go, but KILAY IS FOREVER! Get ready to spend some money this weekend as Sunnies Face has just launched two brow products that have people going gaga! The new Lifebrow Collection features an eyebrow pencil and a grooming gel that promise to give you fluffy, full, and budge-proof brows. The Lifebrow Brow Defining Skinny Pencil (P295) is a buildable and blendable pencil that is thin enough to create hair-like strokes for fuller and more natural looking brows, and the Lifebrow Stay-All-Day Grooming Gel (P345) is a waterproof and smudge-proof gel to powder formula that fluffs up the brow hairs and holds them in place all day. Both available in the shades Ash Brown and Warm Brown, you can snag the new Lifebrow collection in Sunnies Face stores and online.
The magic Touch(e Éclat)
If you’ve been a lover of high-end beauty (or just watch a ton of beauty YouTube videos like me), then you’ll have heard about one of YSL Beauty’s most iconic products - the Touche Éclat Concealer Pen. This click pen concealer has been used everywhere on the face, including to cover up undereye circles, spots, and even blemishes. Well, what if we told you that people have been using it incorrectly all this time and it wasn’t meant for anything more than brightening up the face? I know. Shookt.
YSL noticed the misunderstanding and decided to launch the Touche Éclat High Cover Radiance Concealer, a full coverage concealer that is both buildable and blendable thanks to its brush pen tip. Get ready to conceal and brighten this February 13!
