Lakme Eyebrow Pencil Review
I do not know if you ladies have ever given any notice to some women who just seem like they have the most perfect eyebrows in the world . These women look flawless because of their well shaped and groomed eyebrows . Although majority of us do get our eyebrows done by a beautician there are still very few people that can do it themselves . You know the routine , get your eyebrows done and mostly fell like it’s too thin or to broad or not done correctly but if you are lucky unlike me to have a stationary beautician who does your eyebrows your set .
If you do get your eyebrows done correctly , sometimes you do feel the need for them being a little darker because they seem better that way . That is where your lovely eyebrow pencil comes in .
I started using eyebrow pencil in 2008 when I started college and after one month I stopped because I just felt I needed to grow my eyebrows fully. My beautician always seemed to leave the salon and go to their villages or just leave in general . so I stopped getting my eyebrows done because they always messed it up :/.
But I still kept my eyebrow pencil with me which I used when I felt like it . I bought a new eyebrow pencil because I got my eyebrows done after like 6 months . I like my eyebrows naturally shaped because the unnatural arch makes me look like a Chihuahua :/ seriously .
I use the lakme eyebrow pencil which is prices normally at Rs 35
The eyebrow pencil comes sealed with a plastic sealing which is very firm and you have to figure out how to open it if you are new to it .
See those two lines you have to tear from there and you will end up having something like this . The pencil has a pretty pearl pink color plastic cap which is okay , it does slide off many times , it does its job but if you loose the cap the pencil gets all dirty and ewy :). The pencil is about 4 to 5 cm long . it can easily last you one or two months depending on your use . I use mine on special occasions 😀 so it stays with me for years … until I misplace it , I have to buy a new one after that 😛
As you can see the pencil seems very dark , its not very creamy but its good considering the fact that a creamy eyebrow pencil can get messed up easy , if you swipe your face or anything , in my experience , when you do swipe your face the pencil does lighten but you can never see it getting messed up on your face .
I don’t know how that happens but it does.
This is a swatch of the pencil , it seems very dark when you see the pencil but when you swatch it , its very light and I like that because when I apply it , it doesn’t seem made up , if I want a darker shade , I just swipe it more . 🙂
The above picture is without and the below one I put the eyebrow pencil on the arch of the eyebrow , I know its not a very dramatic difference but I bought the pencil for times when the parlor ladies messes it up and lets gapes and stuff or makes it crooked and I have a wedding to attend 😛 . I do like my eyebrows natural and not thin so I try not to get them done a lot because some ladies mess it up and for the times they do mess it up , I have my Lovely Lakme eyebrow pencil 😀

i always have a badly done eyebrow story 😐 feels like there is no one who can do the job really well …
i tried MAC pencil sometime back…and just loved how it defined the brows…have been toying up with the idea of dark brown…. 😀
My room mate uses this very same pencil ! she has sparse eye brows and the difference after using the pencil is just awesome :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
I toh have never used it,tried it once,but felt little ajeeb 😐 😐 😐
I like to use dark brown eyeshadow for my brows. But my mom has been using this pencil since donkey years now. 😛 She does not have sparse eyebrows but she likes to use it. 😀
Rati – you probably might not see this message since it is an overdue one but how do you use brown eyeshadow for your eyebrow? i assume its a the matte finish eyeshadow. which one do you use?
Aruna , I use the faces eyeshadow trio.. the dark brown eyeshadow from the trio is gorgeous for brows… You can also use the dark brown eyeshadow from the maybelline chai latte quad also. i use angled brush to fill in my brows. :))
good morning. :))
good morning Lady!! appreciate you responding. wasnt expecting it so this is truly cool. :thanks: I will try the maybelline chai latte quad since I dont get Faces in Hyd.
I have an angled brush so yeahhh..(all this naatak for the wedding ok?). i hope i continue to have this enthu (including my gymming)

i have never liked the effect on filled in brows…. i makes my brows look demonic!
Komal, you have got nice thick brows :)) I usually get my eyebrows done at a chinese parlour, other parlour ladies don’t do it properly & sometimes they are so uninterested in their work & that results in cuts sometimes 🙁
I have never seen this eyebrow pencil at the Lakme counter ?:) ?:)
And me 2 like u…i hardly get my eyebrows done 🙂
and I use my eyepencil only whenever I want to fill my eyebrows 😛 😛
Hey Komal!!! You are lucky to have such dense eyebrows!! :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:
My eye brows are so sparse, I have to literally draw them everyday.. And if I thread them they almost disappear!!
So yeah.. This is my staple!! I have tried other brands of brow pencils but they were always brown.. So my eye brows looked ajeeb!!!
I stick with this and I trust it completely for not making me look browless!!! :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:
these eyebrows took me 3 yrs ;/ some lady messd it up 3 yrs ago n then for 3 yrs i couldnt get them done regularly . waited 3 months den go them done with fear dat d lady might kill it . ab toh i like my eyebrows not done :p i js get it done to make my face look clean :p
Still komal… I like thick dense eyebrows!!! And my eyebrows grow laterally… But never fill out!!! :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt:
but i LOVE ur smile rey 🙂 hheheheeh
me studying right now 🙁 kal exam .
Eyebrow pencils are a must for me..but I choose to use dark brown ones instead of black as it gives a natural look even if I overdo it by mistake 😀 nice article Komal :waytogo: :waytogo:
this time only the parlor lady messed up my eye brows.. There is a big gap she created on the left one n right wala Ka arch kharab kar diya.. Generally Im very paranoid abt my eye brows n done get them done by anyone.. Have a fixed person usually.. But this time i tried out a new place , paid more n ended up fuming at the lady! I like to keep them shaped nahi toh i look unkempt n bhondu types!
Have been using oriflame eye brow pencil in brown to fill The gaps..
you should ask her just to get rid of extra hair and if you really like shapely eyebrows then tell her pehleyhi ki you want it like this and this oh and yeah say it like you will get very angry if they mess up 😛 works 😛
yay , i am on computer 🙁 i dont wanto study anymore 😛 but i have to 🙁
I dont have very dark eyebrows but naturally they are in shape.I never got it done at parlours and after reading the experiences above I doubt I will get it done in near future. Nice review Komal me buying one

good review Komal……………. :waytogo:
Hi Jomol!! 😀 😀 😀
Right now i’m filling my eyebrows with a dark brown eyeshadow and pencils don’ really give the desired look, but this one i can try as it is less pricy…. 😀
I’ve never had the need to use eyebrow pencil.. cuz my eyebrows are reeeally dark and just thick enough. But i’ve seen my mom use the same pencil all my life… and she swears by it !!! Works like magic – neither too dear, nor too light. Its just perfect !!! This is a must by for all thin-eyebrows-haired gals.
