I’m back with my latest review. Since last week, I’ve had my maternity leave so I have some free time to look at those drafts and finish them. (though I still want to go to work and teach, but my manager doesn’t allow me. I guess he’s worried I will deliver the baby at the office).
As you know, my HG for eyebrow is e.l.f. eyebrow kit (check this post if you haven’t read it). I think I’ve been using it for more than a year and it is still the best for me. Aside from that, I do sometimes use another product for my eyebrows, like Viva Eyebrow Pencil in Brown. However, I don’t really like the colour because its brown is more like reddish brown (not dark brown like my e.l.f.). I also tried Etude House Color My Brow once (I will write the review later on).
Though I’ve got my HG product for my eyebrows. I still find out that using the e.l.f. eyebrow kit takes my time (especially when you are in a rush!). So, I was on a hunt to find a good eyebrow pencil. Thank God! I finally found my second HG!
I proudly present you…… JRENG… JRENG… JREEEEENG….
PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY
I bought this baby for IDR 49,000. It’s a bit expensive if you compare it with local products, but it’s still cheaper than my e.l.f eyebrow kit. I think the price will vary when you buy it from online shops. Usually they give cheaper price because they don’t have to sell it in stores. However, I bought this eyebrow pencil @Margo City, Depok. The Face Shop store is on Lower Ground, near the escalator.
The pencil is sealed with plastic only. It doesn’t come in a cute, girly package (maybe because it’s just an eyebrow pencil). The expired date information is printed on its cap and the label for the colour is written on a silver sticker. Thank God TFS writes the colour number in English, otherwise I will have no idea about it!
TEXTURE AND SWATCH
Before I purchased this eyebrow pencil, I tried the tester first. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about it because when I tried it on my hand, the texture was as hard as a rock! I have no idea whether it was because what I tried was a tester or else. So, I asked the SA to sharpen the pencil so I could try it. After it was sharpened, the colour came out nicely on my hand and it has the same colour as my e.l.f eyebrow kit.

What I like about this eyebrow pencil, especially in Gray Brown, is the colour is a true dark brown which you won’t find in local products. The colour Gray Brown really suits my natural eyebrows’ colour so that they look natural….. I was also surprised when I applied it on my eyebrows. It turned out that it’s soft enough!
I guess I gambled on buying this product since I didn’t try it on my eyebrows. The good thing is it works well on me! Yay!
It stays put on my eyebrows for more than 6 hours! It doesn’t smudge or give bad patches on my face even though my face is a bit oily and the weather’s quite hot and humid. FYI, I pray shalat 3 times (dzuhur, ashar, and maghrib) while using this product and it’s also quite waterproof (the colour fades a little, but it’s still there). I’m definitely satisfied by this product.
So far I love this product! Despite the price (which I think it’s quite pricey), the colour really suits my natural eyebrows’ colour. The pencil is also quite long, so I guess it can be used for more than 3-4 months. Other reason why I like it is this product comes in pencil so it’s very practical when you are in a hurry. This is the photo taken when I used the product.
Natural colour which suits my eyebrows’ colour d^.^b
Very practical (compared to eyebrow kit)
Soft and easy to apply
Light packaging and also easy to carry in your makeup case
Good staying power (approx. 6 hours) and also sweat proof
More expensive than local products
You have to buy it in its official stores or in online shops
It doesn’t go together with the brush (it will be a plus point if the brush is included)
Will I repurchase this product? Hmmm, let’s see… if I haven’t found other product better than this, I will repurchase it, since it’s easier to find than my e.l.f. eyebrow kit *sigh* . Anyway, I think it;s going to take a long time until this eyebrow pencil is worn off ^.^
Hopefully my review will help you to find your perfect eyebrow pencil. Are you also using the same product? Or are you using other product that you think is better than this? Please lemme know!
