Eyebrows are undoubtedly one of the most important facial features. It frames the entire face, and can even change the perception of how sharp it looks. Some of us may have made the irreparable mistake of over-tweezing or over-plucking our eyebrows – gasp! With the rising popularity of having thick and full eyebrows the likes of Cara Delevingne, a good eyebrow pencil can make all the difference into achieving your perfect brow shape.

Shu Uemura’s hard formula eyebrow pencil helps you to achieve a natural looking eyebrow that doesn’t have the look of it being painted on. This is so because the pencil only releases pigment when it interacts with oil in the brow hairs. Your eyebrow won’t even look like it has been filled in!

The formula of the pencil also allows you to fill your brow in easily. Due to the hardness of the lead, it doesn’t break easily and allows for easy application. It is also available in a range of colours, so would be suitable no matter what your hair colour is. Ask the assistant for help on deciding on which colour to pick – they are usually uncannily accurate at it.

The price may be somewhat steep for such a simple makeup item, but trust us, it is well worth it. We’ve been using our pencil for close to eight months and it still has more than half the pencil left! You may find it a slight hassle to sharpen it though, as only Shu Uemura stores do it. It will be rather hard to sharpen it yourself due to the shape of the pencil.

All in all, if you’re looking for a really good eyebrow pencil to salvage those brows, or simply want a natural look, check out this eyebrow pencil!

Prices start at $23.00. For more information, visit Shu Uemura.
