Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil by Eyestudio

Hi everyone!

I would like to do a post about my first eyebrow pencil. I've never used pencil for my brows before so I can't really compare it with other pencils. But I'm going let you guys know what I think about it and I'll also include a swatch.

 (Sorry if this photo is not as clear as the others, I quickly took a photo with my phone because I just realized I don't have a photo without the cap.)

Know more after the jump!

I have used 2 eyebrow kits before I purchased this pencil. One from ELF and the other from Etude House. Just to give you an idea, I have black hair and yellowish warm undertones. The ELF palette that I got was in dark but it did not work for me. The shade was off, it looked red and I didn't like it.

Then I got myself the Etude House Perfect Eyebrow Kit. I actually love this kit and I've been using it everyday. I use the darker shade most of the time. I know that the palette's in shades of brown but me having black hair, I sometimes feel that brown doesn't look that natural on me. And there are times when I notice that my brows are brown. I don't really hate it. I actually like it but I realized that I'm not that satisfied.

(This photo was taken when it was still brand new.)

One time I saw my friend grooming her brows. She applied eyebrow pencil on them and I thought the shade looked nice. I asked what she was using. It was MAC eyebrow pencil in Taupe. The shade was like greyish brown. I wanted to get one as soon as I swatched it on my hand. When we were in Singapore, I was in one of the many department stores at Orchard Road. I saw a Maybelline counter and saw the Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil by Eyestudio. I looked at the shades but the shades weren't written on the packaging so I just asked the SA and she told me that the one I picked is in the shade grey. I thought it looked almost the same as the MAC Taupe that I was planning to buy. I got super excited so I purchased it.

So far I am loving it. I sometimes use it alone but I usually use it along with my Etude House Perfect Brow Kit. I apply this first then top it with the dark shade from my Etude House kit and then I brush it. I love it because my brows look so much more natural. I think it looks perfect with my black hair. The only thing is that it doesn't last especially on a humid weather, so you may need to retouch. I'm okay with that because the pencil is pretty small and you can carry it anywhere. :)

I got this from Singapore for about SGD $6. I'm not quite sure, though. It's been a while but that's what I remember. A few weeks ago I was at Watson's and they have it as well. It only costs PHP 120+ or 160+, I think. So if you convert the SGD price, it is so much cheaper here.

Rating: Very good kitty!

By the way, my mini giveaway ends today. You still have until 12:00 midnight, though. I'll draw the winner tomorrow. Good luck!

Oh this sounds promising. (: I have sparse brows & am using NYX's brow pencil but it takes sooo much time and effort to make them look natural. I know brow powders create a more natural effect and I heard Wet n Wild's brow kit is pretty good. I might check out the Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil to use as a "base". Thanks for sharing!

Btw, I've given you an award. (: Congrats!
