I am terrible at makeup, that’s why I like products that are somewhat idiot-proof.
This eyebrow liner fits the bill. It’s not a pencil, so there’s no need for sharpening, and better yet, there are no harsh lines. Instead, it has a feathery nib that gives very soft liquidish lines, making it easy to blend into the rest of the eyebrow. I just execute a few light strokes on the sparser areas of my brow and that’s it. It’s hard to make any mistakes (although a makeup pro may look at my brows and beg very much to differ).
It comes in two shades – for fairer or darker skin tone. Available at Watsons for about $20, I think. I bought mine a long time ago, and I saw there’s an improved version now that has the eyebrow liner at one end, and powder at the other. I haven’t tried it out though.
Is it real lasting? Well, actually I never bother to check. It does not smudge though, so I assume it does.
