If I had to bring a single makeup product on a deserted island, it would definitely be a brow pencil. Not sure why I would need makeup if I’m stranded in the middle of nowhere, but that’s not the point! I could easily leave the house with a makeup-free face, but I wouldn’t feel like myself unless my brows are done. I’ve tried so many brow products, from gels to powders and crayons to thin pencils, and all of these from many different beauty brands.
I absolutely love Benefit Cosmetics‘ brow products, I mean, they’re perhaps THE reference for such products and there’s a reason why! I’ve tried their Ka-Brow Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color and I loved how easy it was to apply. It’s pigmented enough so that the colour is buildable and stays on all day. The application with the thin brush is smooth and consistent, and I was able to easily shape my brows.
I received Precisely, My Brow Pencil courtesy of Top Box Circle for review and I am absolutely in love with it! The tip is so fine to allow you to create natural strokes that will blend in to your natural brow hairs.
As you can see, my brow hairs are sparse and oddly patchy, but I have somewhat of a good base to shape brows that aren’t overly arched. As my makeup, I want to keep the look of my brows natural but not too defined. I find that I don’t suit brows that are too dark or shaped with harsh lines, so I appreciate how lightly the pencil applies on and the facts that you can build up without going from 0 to 100%.
I start by lining the bottom of my brows to see where my arch is, then I lightly draw short but light strokes upwards to where my hairs stop. I work from the middle to the tip of my brow and finish off by filling in ever so lightly the area where my brows begin. On the opposite end of the pencil, there’s a little brush to help blend in the product. I always compare the two once finished to see if they’re even because I would hate to be that person with lopsided brows!
It might not seem like much, but I’m happy with a more natural and filled in brows than having them look like I stamped them with an abundance of ink. The Precisely, My Brow Pencil helps me achieve the look I’m aiming for. This is my favourite brow product thus far, and remember, a little goes a long way!
