By Faye Trout,
It is no surprise that our eyebrows help considerably a lot in framing our faces. Brows also helps in creating an illusion – thicker brows makes you look younger, and thinner and arched brows make you like more modern and sophisticated. For those who are gifted with thick and “obedient” eyebrows, you are so lucky! For those, like me, who are faced with a challenge of having to work with thin eyebrows which have the tendency to wander and go every which way possible – well, you are not alone! Alas, all is not lost, thank goodness for a wide array of eyebrow grooming products in the market today.
My Experience with Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil:
I am currently using Chella’s Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil. I was inspired to try it after watching a vlog of a famous makeup & beauty guru. I think it is true to its taupe color as it matches my natural hair color in a very complimenting way.
Chella Skin Care is something new to me. They have an online store and their products are being carried exclusively in some select US salons. However they do have a store, Chella Brow Bar in Topanga Mall in Canoga Park, California. It seems like their main focus are anti-aging, corrective and preventive skin care products, but they also have brow and eye products.
Chella’s eyebrow pencil is unlike any other eyebrow pencil that I have used. It is thin like a pencil lead found in mechanical pencils. It can also be twisted in and out to push out the desired length of the creamy pencil. And since it is creamy, it is easy to apply. No need for sharpeners either!
Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil also comes in 5 other colors: Awesome Auburn, Beautiful Blonde, Dazzling Dark Brown, Luscious Light Brown, and Elegant Ebony. At $18.00 a piece, this is definitely not easy on the pocket, however, it is easy to use and very easy on the eyes – my eyebrows looked fuller naturally and no irritation.
I am just a little bummed that this product does not come with a built-in brush or comb to smudge the product for blending it. (I did some little research and it turns out that their brush and comb are sold separately)
What I Like About Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil:
• Very versatile! Whatever condition your brows may be in, it can take it with little to no effort and your eyebrows will look more kept than before.
• Easy to apply, I think mainly because of the revolutionary thin tip and creamy consistency.
• No need for sharpeners.
• The “pencil” is actually cream-like, so there is no worry of breaking when the pencil is dropped (from experience, other eye brow pencils break their tip when I dropped them, not on purpose, mind you!).
What I Don’t Like About Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil:
• Pricey. But then again, that is a common catch with really good products.
• It would be nice if it has an attached comb/brush to smudge and blend the product on the eye brows.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Repurchase Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil?
Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil in Tantalizing Taupe for me is so versatile and handy that it now has a permanent spot in my travel makeup bag. However, I am still open to other eyebrow grooming products especially if they are a little less pricey. I am flexible and open to other possibilities. It is, after all, one of life’s important lessons – be flexible and adaptable.
I give Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil a thumbs up. It definitely gives the eyes a good frame by accentuating the eye brows in a new, different way. But remember, your eyes and eye brows are only a small part of a beautiful you.
