Advantages: It gives a natural finish to the eyebrows whilst making them look fuller and more defined
Disadvantages: None whatsoever!
I have always had trouble finding an eyebrow pencil that is the correct shade for me. My hair is naturally a light to medium brown colour however, my eyebrows are quite a bit darker (but they are not black). I have tried many different eye brow pencils including, Mac, Clarins, Lancome and Estee Lauder, none of which have been a very good colour match to my eye brows. This one however, is perfect!
This Avon eyebrow pencil is called a 'professional brow styler' and it is part of the Jillian Dempsey professional range for Avon. Jillian Dempsey is a make-up artist who has specifically created a range of products for Avon. I love all of the products created by her and they are not too much more in price than the regular products for Avon. For example, this professional brow styler by her is £6.50 and the regular glimmerstick brow definer by Avon is £6.00 so only £0.50 difference. Plus they are often half price, I get a couple of these at a time when they are £3.00 each... bargain!!
So Why Is This Eyebrow Styler Better Than Other Brands?
Firstly it is not an eyebrow pencil, it is a propelling styler pen which seems to make a massive difference. It self sharpens itself by simply turning it, however, it does not create a very sharp pointed edge like sharpening a pencil. But this again is a plus point, eye brow pencils that I have tried in the past when sharpened give a very harsh and prominent line which tends to look very unnatural even if it is a good colour match. Whereas, this one creates an incredibly natural finish making my eyebrows look fuller and more defined.
It comes in two colours: fair and slate. I use slate and it is the most amazing colour. It is almost a mix of grey, black and brown, so it suits very dark eyebrows as well as light brown eye brows. I love it because it perfectly matches my eyebrows.
The eye brow styler is very small in size which is fantastic to carry around in my bag. It is about two thirds of the size of a regular pencil. It has a clip on lid which is fantastic because it never falls off in my bag. It comes in a black case with silver writing on which looks far more premium than the higher end cosmetics brands I have tried. It comes in a black box when bought which looks nice enough to give as a present to somebody.
The feeling of this eye brow style is quite different to any others I have tried before whether they are propelling or a pencil to sharpen. It has an almost waxy, crayon like feel to it which is fantastic because it keeps the eyebrows in place too without the need of an additional eye brow gel. The magazine and website states that it keeps the eyebrows in place for up to 7 hours which I would have to agree with. I have never had a harsh line to my eyebrows from this one despite how mad I go with applying it. The waxy feel to it also feels very moisturising and never cakes in the brows.
Like I previously said I have had this product for about a month now and I bought two at the same time. I have compared how much I have left of it next to the new full size one which I haven't used yet by propelling them both upwards. My used one looks almost full still next to the unused one which suggests to me that it will last a long time.
Is It Hard To Use?
It is so simple to use - I do not really have an amazing technique to applying it, you simply follow your eyebrows from the most inner point outwards following your natural eye brow shape. When I first showed this product to my mum and she used it, she instantly said how easy and quick it was to use.
Where To Buy This Fab Product
Avon cosmetics can be bought on their website (there are usually great online discount or cashback) or through an independent Avon representative who brings you a brochure. If you do not have an Avon representative you can find somebody local to you via the Avon website.
All in all this is a fab product from Avon that is reasonable in price and I will never spend out on a premium cosmetics brand when it comes to my eyebrows again!
