My Two Cents: Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil

One major disappointment with the Grand Etude House Sale some time ago was that their eyebrow kit was OOS. Well, I was never one to walk away from a sale empty-handed so (with a heavy heart, lol) I got this instead.



Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil 05 (Gray)


PRICE: Approx PHP 120 (PHP 148 regularly, but I got mine at 20% off)

Likes:
- the color. I love gray!
- cheap! and discounted on top of it!
- goes on light, but buildable. perfect for girls like me who put on their makeup with a somewhat heavy hand.
- I love the shape of the cartridge- perfect for shaping and tapering.
- the spoolie brush on the other end is nice too. =))
- refillable (less waste material, and great savings when you buy cartidges instead of a whole new pencil.)

Dislikes:
- Kinda feels like I'm using a Bensia colored pencil on my brows (they still those still around or didIjustdatemyselfagaindarnit! ?)
- Vanishes without a trace in 1 or two hours on me. I think I need some kind of brow gel or primer for it to adhere to. I'll get back to you on that.

Etc.
It is amazing how much well-groomed eyebrows can do for a woman. She could be wearing very minimal makeup but still look pretty and polished, thanks to them.

Until very recently, I couldn't be bothered with mine but now I'm really into eyebrows. I long for those full yet light, feathery drawn-on eyebrows I've been seeing lately.

Oh, and I need THESE in my life.

  1. Reminds me of the Black Bean Eyebrow thingie from Skinfood which I didn't like at all. :D

    Agree about the difference well-groomed eyebrows make. It's like getting an instant makeover without too much effort. :)

  4. I chose gray because my eyebrows are too black. I just wanted to soften their appearandand no one will believe that my hair is naturally this color anyway. Didn't bother finding an exact match. LOL!

  7. Hi Catmare! Wow, I admire your self-control. LOL!

    Actually, I prefer powders and pigments over pencils, too but this is handy for when I don't have a lot of time or need to retouch outside.
