SHINE: Battle of Affordable Eyebrow Pencils (Available in PH)
As we all know by now, our eyebrows are the most essential part of our face. Eyebrows literally provide the polished look we need and give our eyes the extra fierceness. Every girl should learn how to properly shape and shade their eyebrows because #KilayIsLife! But, we can't do that without our trust-worthy eyebrow pencils!
In this post, I'm going to list a number of affordable eyebrow pencils which I have used over the years. Take note that these are all Asian brands accessible in the Philippines, although some are not locally made.
1. Etude House Drawing EyeBrow
PROS: Highly pigmented; Comes with a spoolie. Retractable. Easy to apply due to angle.
CONS: Becomes patchy after 4-5 hours. Easy to break. The lightest shade is still a little too strong.
Price: PHP 178.00
Where to buy? Etude House branches nationwide (I bought mine from Etude House, SM North EDSA)
2. Nature Republic Auto Eyebrow
PROS: Available shades are natural-looking and complements with fair and medium skin tones. Easy to apply due to angle. Available in either pencil or retractable pencil. Comes with a spoolie.
CONS: Becomes patchy after 6-8 hours if not blended properly with a spoolie or brush. Pencil is a little thick.
Price: PHP 185.00
Where to buy? Nature Republic branches and stalls nationwide (I bought mine from Nature Republic stall in Landmark, TriNoma)

4. Nichido Minerals/Precise Eye Pencil
