I have something exciting (for me) that I wanted to share with everyone - I finally bought my Mac Mini that I've been wanting since last year and appeared on my February Wishlist post (here). I already own a Macbook Pro 13" and adjusting to my desktop monitor is a bit weird for me because everything is bigger! If anyone ever plans to buy a Mac Mini, please note that it does NOT come with a cd/dvd drive and if you plan on webcamming be sure your webcam has a built in mic without the microphone cord as the Mac Mini does not have a microphone line. Also, double check that your monitor uses DVI (male end) as the box only provides you with a really short HDMI to DVI adaptor (female end) or else you have to buy an extension cable with the right ends... I've learnt my lesson.
Besides that, I'm starting uni next Tuesday so I won't have that much time to post as much as I would love to so please don't forget about me!
Yesterday I purchased a Design My Eyebrows eyebrow pencil from The Face Shop while I was in the city. The only eyebrow pencil I've ever tried is the e.l.f Studio Eyebrow Lifter & Filler which is very creamy and dark and I struggle with it sometimes as I have Asian eyebrows - light and sparse. Whenever I fill in my eyebrows it looked too dark or maybe I'm not used to seeing myself with eyebrows haha. In the past I never really cared about my eyebrows but I must say, your eyebrows are so important in framing your face.
A smart triangular automatic eyebrow pencil that you can adjust the angle to make the inner eyebrows thick and the outer part thin. A smart triangular automatic eyebrow pencil that you can adjust the angle to create any shape you want. A more modern and simple designThis is a double ended eyebrow pencil - a spooly brush at one end and the pencil at the other. I don't understand the moustache design but that's what makes the packaging cute I guess.
- A trendy design that can appeal to young consumers
- New formula that suits the new market and make up trend
- Soft texture that completely adheres to the eyebrow and powerful long lasting abilities
- A triangular shaped pencil for easier application
There's nothing special about the spooly brush so I didn't take a picture. The pencil is shaped in a very thin isosceles triangle instead of a normal pointed pencil. I find that with this provides greater coverage and easier to create lines, similar to filling your eyebrows with an angled liner brush.
The special thing about Korean eyebrow pencils is it's pigmentation - when you first swatch it it's not very pigmented at all but this allows you to build up to however dark you want your eyebrows! I absolutely love this as it gives me greater control as to how light or dark I want my eyebrows to be as well as how I want to draw/fill them in so no more funny eyebrows!
When I say I have light and sparse eyebrows, I mean I have really light and sparse eyebrows. If you were to look at my photos on Facebook, most of the time you will only see half my eyebrows hahaha.
I love this eyebrow pencil! I bought this in the shade 02 Dark Brown and there are four other shades available: 01 Gray Brown, 03 Black Brown, 04 Brown, 05 Dark Gray. However I don't think I would purchase this again in store as it retails for $7.90 and I'm pretty sure I can purchase this for less. I would probably purchase this again if this runs out unless I find a better alternative.
Have you tried any Korean eyebrow products? What other eyebrow pencils do you recommend? :)
TGIF and enjoy your weekend!
