Skin Food Black Bean Brow Pencil [Review]

I got this eyebrow pencil a couple of months ago during Skinfood new concept store launching in The Mines.  Beware of the Skinfood girls because they are good in selling their products, I was talked into buying this and 2 other products from Skinfood which I may review in another blogpost.

Anyway, a couple of months ago, I was actually in a craze of doing my brows. I was still quite new to doing brows because I never really paid much attention to them until I realize how much they do to your overall look. Brows are the ones that shapes your face and a neat looking brow can get away with minimal makeup. Natural makeup looks so much better with good defined brows.

I'm going to be completely honest saying that I always, ALWAYS overdo my brows in the beginning. Most of the time I would rub it off because I tend to draw it too dark and thick and ugly. As always, practice makes perfect and I'm definitely getting better at it.

Because I am quite new at doing my brows, I don't really have much brow stuff and this is my 3rd brow "kit" that I have in my collection. I also have the K-Palette Lasting 2Way Eyebrow Liquid and Powder "kit" that I absolutely love but is not the easiest thing to use, most of the time I only use the K-Pallete for special occasion. For an everyday look, I use this Black Bean pencil because it is so easy to draw and soften the look with the spooly brush at the other end. Filling in my brows have never been so natural and simple. 

The tip is not the ordinary round lead but it is more of a flat shaped pencil which does helps in defining the brows better. 

Direct from pencil

and soften the pencil with the spooly brush

I know that this is a good brow pencil because I have others friends who uses it and like it a lot. They have a good range of colours for this but I feel most Malaysians will only buy brows instead of black and grey.
