Part of the 1 Day Tattoo 24h range, this eyebrow pen (S$18.90) really lasts. It comes in two shades: 01 Natural Brown and 02 Greyish Brown. I bought Greyish Brown last year and love it. It isn’t a conventional waxy brow pencil; instead, it has a micro-fibre brush-tipped applicator to dispense its liquid colour. Although this product behaves somewhat like a marker, don’t be leery of it – light strokes give you incredibly natural-looking brows. I love how its fine tip allows me to feather the lines, gently filling in my sparse brows.
In addtion, its fine tip allows for definition, as well as intensity control for gradation of colour (the signature Japanese brow-drawing style and one that gives dimension to the brows). According to Beauty Carousel which carries the K-Palette line, the ‘water-resistant translucent ink…helps users avoid the common problem of “over-darkened” eyebrows’. I like how its initial wetness merges the pigment naturally with my original brow hairs and how the tint tapers off at the right time, thanks to the ink’s consistency and the fine nib. Tip: Brush through brows with a spooly/mascara brush after application for a très naturel look.
This might not be a conventional brow product but a little practice will not only yield effortless brow shading, it will also give you naturally and beautifully-framed eyes.
As you’ve probably guessed, my impetus for writing this review came from the K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow sale. I was so excited about it that it spurred me to talk about this little makeup gem! ;)
