I have been looking for a brow pencil that works for me for as long as I can remember. The problem I have is that I am fair skinned. The blonde pencils can sometimes be too orange for me and the brown can sometimes be too dark! I thought I was never going to find one that actually worked.
That was until I was sent the L'Oreal Brow Artist Super Liner in shade 03 Brunette. It is a 3 in 1 brow pencil that comes with the brow colour, a fix & finish wax and a shaping brush. The idea is that you draw the line from the bottom of the brow and work toward the top to quickly create a natural looking defined brow look. You can easily create a brow look that suits you, from, a soft & romantic brow to a strong brow. Once you have created the look you want you use the soft brush to blend and shape to your natural brows. This is then fixed using the wax on the other end of the pencil. Applying this will ensure there is no smudging and make sure that the brows stay the same all day long!
I was very surprised that this worked for me, especially since I was sent the shade brunette. However, I was very pleasantly surprised and I will continue to use this product and will definitely repurchase!
The shade is absolutely perfect, I do have to be quite light handed to ensure it isn't too dark but as long as I do this then it is the perfect shade match.
The brush is brilliant too and ensures that the brow looks natural, there are no heavy lines and you cannot see any pencil lines like you can with some brow pencils, these are all blended away whilst still maintaining the look you created.
What I love most about this pencil is the texture of it, it is hard enough to be very precise and draw thin lines but it is also soft enough so you can create the look you want quickly and evenly. This also means that the product will last longer as you don't have to press down really hard, therefore not wasting product.
The fixing & finishing gel even does what it is suppose to and keeps the look all day long! There was no smudging and my brows looked the same at the end of the day as they did when I first applied the brow pencil! I have never experienced a fixing wax before and I didn't expect much from it. I have only used gels in the past. I didn't quite understand how applying a pencil wax over the top wouldn't ruin the look I had created, but it doesn't! The colour stays the same and it doesn't alter the look, it just perfects it and holds it in place for the day.
In the range their are three colours to choose from blonde, brunette & dark brunette. I haven't tried the blonde pencil as I was sent the brunette but when I re purchase I will give the blonde a try. I have heard that the blonde tone is ashy rather than orangey, I may have finally found the perfect brow pencil after all this time! Until I run out, I am very happy to continue with the brunette pencil. As I said before, if you are fair skinned you can use the brunette pencil lightly which is the perfect shade match in my case. My mum has even been using this pencil and she isn't as fair as me so it really does suit any skin tone.
I would highly recommend this brow pencil, even if like me you haven't been able to find the perfect pencil for a while!
It currently retails for £5.49 which is an excellent price for such a good product. There is also currently an offer on at boots - All L'Oreal cosmetics are 2 for £14. You can find the brow pencil HERE.
