Here's a review on a product that I have been reaching out for for every day use--The Face Shop Designing Eyebrow Pencils. Originally comes in six (6) shades: 01 Light Brown, 02 Gray Brown, 03 Brown, 04 Black Brown, 05 Dark Brown, 06 Dark Gray, I picked up the ones in Shade 02 and 05. Although all shades are amazingly nice for everyday use, I just find the Gray Brown and Dark Brown are the closest match to my brows--I have thick and dark strands yet seem to be scattered all over, thus the need for eyebrow products that would make it look naturally full. I'm just so glad I discovered these eyebrow pencils and I can't wait to share my thoughts about them!
Here's what the product claims according to Google:
Auto eyebrow pencil with square flat brow to design eyebrows with ease and convenience. Natural touch every day with a less-irritating square brow: Change from the existing triangular type to a smoother square type ensures less irritation even on sensitive skin to support a smooth and natural-looking eyebrow every day Easy and convenient flat brow design: even a beginner can complete a straight-line eyebrow with ease and convenience by just straight stroking with The Face Shop’s exclusive design flat brow.
So the product comes in this slim pencil type packaging with a retractable head on one side, and a brow brush on the other. This makes it even more convenient and fun to use for you get a brow shaper and tool in one for that beautiful brows on fleek. I measured length of the brow product just out of curiosity and it's approximately an inch long which I don't think would lasts me very long especially if you are someone who shapes your brows everyday. For the price I paid though, I wouldn't think I'll get a deal that's any better.
Texture, Pigmentation and Ease of Application
I actually used to hate the traditional pencil-type brow products and prefer these retractable ones that comes in a flat square form for the fact that they create better outlines and fill brows very easily without those sharp lines. I don't like products that seem to give a blotchy look on the brow because it requires more blending effort. Good thing, The Face Shop Designing Eyebrow Pencils are easy to work with and even the shades themselves make it easier to blend on natural colors of our eyebrows. I didn't even need the use of brow mascara!
One thing you might find off about these eyebrow pencils are its pigmentation. If you prefer those that gives a bold color pay off, then these are not for you. The very light pigmentation is what triggered my increased admiration towards these products actually. I like they don't add much color to my brows and just make it appear as if I have naturally full brows. Please refer to the pic below.

On the picture above, I had my eyebrows framed well for more or less 10 hours with minimal fading. I would say that they withstand humidity and hold up pretty well even with my oily skin. They are just perfect for beginners and to those who wants to achieve natural looking eyebrows without being too much. Definitely a highly recommended product and I'd be more than willing to repurchase!
