Warning: This is not for the faint of heart (or product).
I am very obsessed in drawing my brows as I am obsessed with lipsticks. I am always looking for new eyebrow products be it pencils or powders. So when Essence came to the Philippines, I had to check out their brow kits/products. I loved their foundations and gel liner so I thought I would love their eyebrow pencil as well. I was wrong. To say the least I am very DISAPPOINTED. I just wasted Php 109.00 on this.
This comes in a traditional pencil, meaning this needs to be sharpened. It also comes with a brush attached to the cap.
There's no scent.
I got the shade 04 Blonde. This is the lightest shade they have I believe. I wanted a light pencil because I just use it to outline my brows and I don't want it to be harsh. I really couldn't give you a decent swatch since the tip easily BROKE OFF! I tried sharpening it but the tip just breaks. It's a shame because the color looks promising.
As for consistency, this is VERY soft. I can't use it to draw anything because it breaks easily even with a light hand. I can't understand why. It's like it melted. Maybe because of the heat here, I don't know! It's pretty useless now because I can't sharpen it. I tried freezing it but it softens again after a few minutes. I am very disappointed.
Anyone experienced the same? Please let me know. Thanks! :)
