Day 9 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – MUA Makeup Academy Brow Define Eyebrow Pencil

How fortuitous. My current eyebrow pencil is running low and I wisely put off buying a new one just in case there was one in this advent calendar! The pencil’s lid has a built-in sharpener and the other end has a spoolie, which makes the whole process a lot easier than trying to dig around in my makeup box for either tool. It will also save me keeping my old pencil for the spoolie. This product is cruelty free and vegan.

MUA website description: Buildable brow shade to line, define & fill with ease. Complete with a sharpener & spooly for the ultimate brow definition at any time.

First Impressions: The pencil has no shade name on it, but looking at the website I would guess this was the mid brown shade. This makes sense as you can press lightly or firmly to create lighter or darker lines. I broke the tip off to test the sharpener and it works really well. The product is fairly smudge-proof, but not entirely. My eyebrows are quite dark and they are fairly full with only one or two sparse areas. I found the colour was a good match and the forumla was creamy enough to fill in those sparse areas efficiently, but it did flake. I am used to using micro pencils so it did feel a tad bulky and imprescise. However, once I used the spoolie, it corrected any mistakes and swept any flakes away. I would say this product is well worth the £1.50 price tag.


Success! You're on the list.
