I am blessed with very few brow hairs like my mom. She is always on the lookout for products that would enhance my brows and increase my “brow” hair growth.
I was using black pencil during my college days. It was my mom who found out through some source and told me that brown over black gives a natural look for Indians. Since then, I started following the same technique with pencils from different brands.
I have been using brown pencil alone on my brows as one of my friend who is a beautician suggested to me to use only brown as my hair color is not very intense black, but sometimes I wear black over brown just for a change, but I make sure that I use less of black and more of brown.
This slim line pencil shapes and defines eyebrows. Defines brows. Dermatologically tested. Ophthalmologically tested.
How To Use:
Draw through the brows. Use short feathery strokes, following the direction of hair growth.
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emollient), Ceresin (Stabiliser), Nylon-12 (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Mica (Opacifier), Sclerocarya Birrea Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant). [+/- CI 77499 (Colour), CI 77891 (Colour), CI 77492 (Colour), CI 77491 (Colour)].
I got this for 44 SR (Rs. 465 on Indian TBS Website).
My Take on The Body Shop Brow Definer – Dark Brown:
This brow definer is named 03 – Dark Brown Shade. It is also available in 01- Blonde and Aubum, 02- Brunette shades. I think 03 would suit Indians. I have used this for more than four months and I am completely satisfied with the brow definer.
How I Use TBS Brow Definer Pencil:
- Brush brows up and away from the face using a baby toothbrush/eyebrow brush/clean mascara wand.
- Draw small strokes from the centre of the brows and then fill in starting areas of the brows and its end.
- Repeat the same for the next brow.
Pros of The Body Shop Brow Definer – Dark Brown:
- Gives most natural look.
- Very creamy in texture.
- Stays intact for the whole day.
- Comes with the metallic cap. I had a pencil from another brand with plastic cap which broke within a few months of usage.
- TBS does not test on animals.
- Availability is not an issue as TBS outlets are available worldwide.
Cons of The Body Shop Brow Definer – Dark Brown:
- It would be better if it has a sharpener too.
I would highly recommend this brow pencil to anyone who needs a pencil to enhance their brows. Though I absolutely love this product, I may not buy this product again as I am very much happy with the TBS Brow and Definer Kit, which I have reviewed recently. This pencil does help in filling the gap, but not as much as the TBS Brow and Definer kit‘s powder does, but I would say that this is the best among brow pencils that I have used.
