I don't know about you but doing my eyebrows would be the first thing I do after my face routine. Eyebrows are the first thing I care for seeing as though I accidentally messed them up in the past.
If you didn't know, awhile ago I had a little spree and decided to spend my money on the Rimmel London Eyebrow Pencil, I had been using my Daiso Eyebrow Pencil which was just...crap. I thought why not spend more money on a brand I trust more?
I got it at Priceline on sale for $6.80, it usually retails for $8.50.
There were only 3 colours available, Hazel, Dark Brown and Black Brown.
I got the colour in 001 Dark Brown since my hair colour is a brown colour (naturally black hair).
Not that happy that they didn't sell a wide range of colours.
You would probably have to buy the Black Brown if you have darker hair.
On the lid of the pencil, it had a brow brush which did come in handy to blend out the harsh lines made by the pencil while also grooming my brows.

Now what I don't like is that the pencil itself wasn't sealed up with plastic. Its lid was free of anyone just opening it and testing it out.
I forgot to check if mine was tested or not so when I got home I saw that the pencil was blunt, flat looked used but luckily it wasn't fully noticeable (blunt to the very tip) so it wouldn't do any harm to just sharpen it again!
I know I didn't go to the very edge of my eyebrows, I usually like to fill them in naturally and also put eyebrow powder over it. I only use pencil to line the edges since I have some spaces which powder won't do the job.
For the lasting power it did start to fade. I have school for 6 hours and I have very oily skin, I don't like to touch up my make-up during my breaks so it's important for me to find products that last. Sad to say this pencil didn't reach to my standards. Though I am still finding my holy grail eyebrow pencil.
Have you guys used this product? What's your favourite eyebrow pencil? :)
