In my opinion, nothing quite gives your face life like a good set of eyebrows would. Trust me, this is coming from a person who over-plucked her eyebrows during her teen years and has regretted it ever since. And when it comes to quality, long-lasting, natural-looking eyebrows product, the search for the right one can be pretty exhausting. But years of practice has made me somewhat of an expert.
For a long time, my favourite was the one and only, Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil by Tarte but that was until I discovered Benefit Cosmetics’ Goof Proof Brow Pencil. I thought to myself, “Two kinds of eyebrow pencils are definitely enough.” I was wrong and my recent Sephora excursion proved that because I may have discovered the holy grail of eyebrow pencils.
Introducing NYX’s Micro Brow Pencil. Priced at RM45, this eyebrow pencil is an absolute steal! I’m always excited when I find reasonably-priced makeup, but sometimes cheap also equals to sh*tty quality but it’s definitely not the case with this one. With jet black hair and medium-brown skin tone, I picked the darkest shade they had, which was black.
The pencil itself is very thin, so working with it is super easy. I think that this product is also the perfect one for beginners. And for someone who has uneven and sparse eyebrows a.k.a. me, the Micro Brow Pencil really helps with filling them in, thus giving my eyebrows a fuller and more natural-looking feel. So, if you’re not a fan of Instagram-style eyebrows, consider this pencil. Longevity? Without makeup setting spray and take a humid day into account, it can stay on for a good 6-8 hours. With makeup setting spray, no retouching required.
All in all, I would rate the NYX Micro Brow Pencil a 9/10.
