Eye of Horus, known for their vibrant Goddess Pencils that are virtually smudge-proof and waterproof, has now released another eye-catching product -- their Brow Define. For brow-sessed (thanks, Ae, for this word!) ladies, this is something you gotta get your hands on.
These retractable pencils are as slim as they can get, and of course come in the typical Eye of Horus goddess colors of gold and black.
Brow Define slimline pointed tip contours and fills in color with controlled artistry for perfect arches. Add shape, colour, and definition in one streamlined tool. Use brush on reversal tip to shape for perfect Goddess brows.
Price: Php 950
They come in 3 shades: Husk (Light/Medium), Dynasty (Medium Brown), and Nile (Dark) which will complement most Filipina skin tones and hair colors. When applied, these pencils give a soft wash of colors that's buildable. The other end features a spoolie brush to help tame brows.
To be honest, I had some reservations about trying them because I've gotten used to using an eyebrow pencil with a slanted tip so I was thinking having a smaller pointed tip would be a challenge to maneuver. But hey, this would be an interesting test to my eyebrow-drawing skillz so I tried it anyway. After choosing Husk (as it was the lightest among the 3 pencils), I immediately plotted my brows and got to work.
Oh, hello. This is how I look like without brow pencil. I look sad, right? :P I only have VMV Hypoallergenics Armada 60 + my Ellana Minerals Pressed Powder Foundation on.
I just drew on my brows using short feathery strokes. These Brow Definers, unlike their Goddess Pencil cousins, feature a harder tip that makes each stroke precise. The good thing is you can easily camouflage or correct mistakes also because of the buildable color.
So after a few soft strokes, I am done! Contrary to my initial fear, it was pretty darn easy to use! The fine tip actually helped mimic brow hairs, it was super easy to shade the sparse areas, and create a more symmetrical brow. From the photo above, my brows were filled yet look totally natural. Even the tail was easy to create and this is because of the fine tip.
My brows lasted from 10am today til 10pm tonight (I still have yet to wash off my makeup though), there was no fading at all even though I sweated it out at Barre3 and then went shopping with Mom. I am starting to love the pointed tip, though I wish the spoolie brush was more dense (I really liked Empro's spoolie brush, FYI) and a lighter shade was available. Husk wasn't as light ash brown as I wanted it to be, but I can mix it with my Holika Holika 24H Auto Eyebrow for a hair color match.
These Eye of Horus Brow Define pencils now available on the Glamourbox site! Thanks to the team for letting me try them in advance :)
