I feel like I’m never going back to Sephora for brow products ever again because I found out great ones from Korean brands. It’s not the first time I’m trying out The Face Shop’s Designing Eyebrow Pencil so I had a pretty good amount of time to actually try it and compare it to other brow products. Brows are the one thing I always put on because if not, I know I would look like a 15-year-old boy. I finally moved on from the Benefit Goof Proof and trying out something new! Let’s go on and have a closer look at the pencil. Note that I will mostly compare it to the Goof Proof just for reference.
So it has double ended plastic packaging like the usual. A lot less of quality compared to the other brow products I’ve tried. I notice that the caps crack easily at about 3 months of use. The product is on the other end and the spoolie on the other. It has 0.3 grams which is just about the same as the Goof Proof which has 0.34 grams.
It’s a lot stiffer and waxy than others so one stroke would just give you a light shade of colour. Basically, it doesn’t have much pigment pay-off and not creamy at all (which is a not a bad thing for brow products!) With that being said, I notice that I use a heavier hand when using this compared to when I’m using the Goof Proof. I like making the inner/front parts of my brows lighter than the rest of the brows. This product is perfect for that because it delivers the perfect amount of product without being too heavy.
I would say that the texture is a lot like the Anastasia Brow Whiz which is less creamy that the Goof Proof.
It only has 5 colours. I picked up 02 Gray Brown, 03 Brown, and 04 Black Brown only because I’m not sure what kind of brown I am. Lol. The colours are very close to each other so I don’t think I’ll mind using one or the other interchangeably.
It stays long enough throughout the day. Wouldn’t say it’s budge-proof or waterproof though.
This is probably the only thing that’s a bit of a letdown. Once you use it after the first time, it loses its sharpness. So naturally, it’s going to have a rounded, circular tip. That shape makes it a struggle to draw a defined line. I find that I always have to wipe off product just to get my desired sharp eyebrow tail.
A whopping C$6! That’s affordable compared to the Goof Proof which is C$32 and Anastasia’s Brow Definer which is C$30!
- Waxy and hard
- Buildable pigment
- Very Affordable (C$6)
- Long lasting
- Low-quality packaging; cracks easily
- Shape of the tip makes it hard to draw defined lines
I think I have a new favourite! For its price? I think this beats all other brow products!
Hope this was helpful!
