My eyebrows are probably the easiest area in my face to maintain. I thank God everyday that I don’t need to have regular waxing or plucking to keep them groomed. I just need to have the occasional plucking of stray hairs to make them look perfect. Otherwise I am good to go.

I always wanted to get a good brow pencil though to enhance how my brows look like. I wanted to get a pencil that would not make my brows look too drawn in… I just want something to make them look naturally dark.

I was so happy to discover the Majolica Majorca Brow Customize Pencil in one of my visits to their counter in SM Makati.

The pencil has 2 parts – the brow color (I chose the sword cut as it was very easy to use in my opinion as opposed to the pencil tip) and the brow holder:
P7101990

The color and the holder are sold separately. The color retails for Php295 while the holder for Php225. I think it was very practical for Majolica to have that option of just buying a refill for the color instead of buying the whole thing. It encourages you to buy again and just pay Php295 for the refill rather than Php520 for the whole thing. The holder houses a brow brush which makes the application process easier and makes you achieve that natural dark brows.

I got the dark brown color (BR660). I love how easily this applies on my brows and how it stays there. Application is a breeze as you just have to lightly fill-in your brows with the color then use the brow brush after to smudge the color and remove any harsh lines. It lasts me the whole day and the color does not migrate to any other area when rubbed so you can actually pull off natural dark brown brows with these babies. 😀

See the comparison of No color (L) vs With color (R):

PROS: Affordable, Easy to use, color stays the whole day while it’s easy to wash off with just facial wash, makes brows look naturally dark, handy size so it’s easy to fit into your make-up bag. The twist-up function of the tip works well unlike other make-up brands where you twist up and it would already refuse to twist down.

CONS: I have nothing bad to say here as I absolutely love this product and been using it everyday since I got it.

TIP: To make your brows more prominent, blend in a highlighter below the brows and above it.

I love, love, love this. Finally found my HG (Holy Grail) eyebrow pencil. I actually might be refilling it anytime soon 😉

These are available at all Majolica Majorca stores and counters. I got mine from their counter in SM Makati. Their sales rep there is an angel – very helpful, nice and patient with fickle buyer like me hahaha. 🙂
