See, I have always been a HUGE fan of the Clinique Superfine Brow Liner in Soft Blonde, but admit that it does have its faults. It breaks a lot, gets used really quickly and isn’t that cheap either (Usually I pay around £13 in Debenhams). So finding something that’s a close colour match and similar for a fraction of the cost would be a good thing, right? Well, I may have found something really close.
Here are the most common issues I’ve had with brow pencils….
Wrong colour. Too brown, dark, red, orange, green. Just wrong toned and wrong depth.
Too hard, its hard to get a precise line and if you do its then hard to blend it to make it look natural.
Don’t last. As soon as you get your brows ‘did’ and one wipe or itch and they are gone.
Too soft. They smudge off or blend to nothing.
Now this is why I love the Eylure Shape and Shade brow pencil, it seems to be ‘just right’. Almost like the porridge in Goldilocks! It’s not too hard or soft, its the right kind of ash blonde without being too dark or light or the wrong tone, it blends really easily but still gives you definition and best of all, it lasts on the brow!
Swatched I think it looks a little dark, almost grey but this is not the case on the brows at all. I have always had naturally fair brows. They are quite ash blonde like my natural hair colour. I have tried to tint them, but it always looks fake on me. It’s hard to get a pencil that works well on them without making them look fake, or unnatural. But the Eylure Shape and Shade really makes it quite easy.
I wouldn’t go back to using my Clinique Brow liner now I’ve found a good dupe which works just as well.
