Review: BYS Brow and Eye Pencil

Eyebrows in my humble opinion can make or break your look. Even if your makeup looks nice, but with bare eyebrows it still looks incomplete. 

If you have little time to do your eye makeup, just do your brows, curl your lashes and apply mascara. The fastest way to enhance and define your brows is by using an eyebrow pencil. After testing this product for almost a week, I'm ready to share my thoughts on it.

 BYS Brow and Eye Pencil in Brown


PRICE: Php 250.00 (about $6)

NET WEIGHT: 0.2 grams

WHERE TO BUY: SM Department stores, Watsons
SHADES: 
Black, Brown and Blonde.

PROS:
* affordable
* it has a waxy texture that helps the product glide on effortlessly.
* very pigmented
* no weird smell
* no need to sharpen since it's retractable.
* can also be used as eyeshadow base for smokey eyes and eyeliner (don't forget to set it with eyeshadow to prevent smudging).
* the slanted shape of the pencil makes it easy to create thin or thick lines.

CONS:
* not smudge-proof and waterproof


TIPS:
* I find the shade Brown to dark for me, so I use MAC Brow set in Girl boy to lighten the color of my brows.
* For people with oily skin, since this product isn't smudge-proof you may want to use a separate brow powder on top to make it last longer.

OVERALL:
I like this product! If you are looking for an inexpensive, good quality brow pencil I suggest you try this one. 

WILL I REPURCHASE:
Yes, I want to try the lighter shade.
