Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil


I'm sometimes a little funny about taking high end cosmetics with me on holiday, especially when they are Illamasqua and the eyebrow cake and brush alone cost a fortune, just in case they break or get damaged. So I thought I would look for a simpler all-in-one pencil which can do the same job for a fraction of the price. Whilst browsing my forever favourite Korean beauty website, Cosmetic Love, I came across the Etude House Drawing Eye Brown Pencil. I have had one of these before that I picked up in China last year in a dark ash/grey colour which was perfect for when I had black hair, but as usual I changed my hair colour and it ended up in the bin. 

The eyebrow pencil itself comes in six different shades so that you can be sure you get an accurate match. Most eyebrow pencils in the UK only come in three shades so you really struggle, but I certainly haven't had a problem with this at all. The shape of the pencil itself is quite unique and I've only seen angled brushes, not pencils. This makes application much easier and you can really define your lines. The pencil itself is really strong and quite hard, so you really do need to press on for application. This however, does mean that you don't get a smudged, block-coloured brow and can really define the hair. I also really like the fact one is end is a brush too, meaning you can tame those unruly hairs. This has easily become my make up bag staple eyebrow product, and even if I dye my hair (when it grows back!), I know I can easily get a good replacement colour. The eyebrow pencils cost $4.90 which is around £2.92 so even beats some drugstore prices for eyebrow pencils! And if you like it that much, you can also buy a refill for the pencil itself when it runs out, these only cost 92p. I don't think you can even buy anything in the UK for less than a quid anymore! Perfect.

Cosmetic Love have always been my go-to Korean beauty store, even when they first began on eBay I knew I could trust them to provide me with authentic products and great customer service, and they still continue to deliver. Their shipping policies are fantastic, and even though they say their items will be delivered in 10-25 days I normally get mine in around a week, and that's coming from Korea. Some products in the UK can't even deliver in that time! They always have great offers on too, and their shipping is always free!
