I've found another HG item lovelies! We all know that eyebrows frame the face, thats why I decided to "invest" in a highly raved eyebrow pencil from Shu Uemura. After I saw how effortlessly the MUA filled in the gaps in my brows when I had a makeup session recently, I just blurted it out: I want one please! ^_^
There are two kinds of the hard formula pencils, I believe they're called hard 6 and hard 9 respectively. MUA recommended hard 6 to me because it can be easily sharpened with a regular eyeliner sharpener after I told him I didn't want to bother going back to the store every time the pencil needs sharpening (using a sharp knife or a cutter and doing it myself is not even an option for a clumsy gal like me).
Description from Shu Uemura:
A hard eyebrow pencil used to precisely create and shape the eyebrows. The H6 formula is made with soft lead to draw slightly softer and thicker lines. Unique color pigment releases only when it interacts with the oil in the eyebrow hairs. The result is natural, defined brows without the 'drawn on' look. Smudge-proof and long-lasting.
in its original packaging.
its exactly 17.5 cm long
Let me show you how it works on my brows, heres a pic of my bare brows:
and heres a pic after filling the 'bald spots' with the Shu Uemura Hard Formula [hard 6] Seal Brown Eyebrow Pencil:
so much better no?
What I LOVE about it:
➜very easy to use, even for 'pencil' beginners like me, as it only blends pigment when natural oils are detected, giving me a very natural look which I love.
➜it doesn't smudge
➜it stays on all day
➜pencil is long, lots of product to last for a long while
➜the shade 'seal brown' complements my dark, asian brows really well
➜it can be layered for more definition.
What I DONT LIKE about it:
➜the PRICE! that's all. Bought it at a Shu Uemura store for Php1,400 or approx. USD31 (the horror!)
I already tossed my one year old Etude eyebrow cake (which I hit pan on!) back in the drawer since I got this pencil, its that amazing! I know I won't be needing anything else. ;)
