This post won't be about teaching you how to draw your own brows as I've done it. To look back, click here Askmewhaters *winks*

This is about my HG eyebrow pencil. The Paul & Joe Eyebrow Pencil duo. What I love about them? It's like buying 2 pencils in one. I believe they have it in 4 duo shades (01, 02, 03,04).

Your Askmewhats was crazy enough to buy all 3! Numbers 2, 3, and 4. I know, this may be confusing to a lot of you who aren't familiar with Paul & Joe pencils. I'll break it down for you based on my own opinion and experimentation hahaha..that sounds so scientific!

Paul & Joe Says ---

Paul & Joe Eyebrow Pencil is a must for perfectly defined brows. Two complementary colours for brows, use the darkest shade to contour the arches and the ligher shade to soften and define.

Askmewhats says ---

Pros --
  • you can't go wrong with having 2 shades of pencil in one, as one always looks natural and subtle, which doesn't look too strong when applied
  • the pencil is kinda hard (which you would think would be a negative side), but I found this hard part is kinda helpful because it'll be quite difficult for you to overdo your brows.
  • the packaging is just sooooo cute! I always feel good when I use it! (no joke!)

Cons --
  • expensive for a brow pencil
  • let's say you have a favorite color out of the 2, well, because it's 2 in 1, 1 color would mean it is just around 3 inches long, so it's easy to use up!
Will I repurchase?

YES!!! Like i said, this is my HG!

Askmewhats additional tip ---

Well, since I bought 3 out of 4 colors. I think I have a little bit of "right" to discuss about these further, hehehe don't sue me!

# 01 I believe is for corrective purpose. If you have tatooed eyebrows that looks a bit bluish or something, this is great to "correct" the color of your brows

#02 This, according to the wonderful P&J staffs is the most popular color. This is great for someone who's got dark hair or dyed dark brown hair. This look so natural and I've used this to all my friends and it works well for all of them!


#03 I bought this because it is on sale and #2 isn't available at that time. Good thing I bought this, as I found this one works well on me as well! But based on my observation, this would be great for people with reddish hair or brownish red hair. As the darker portion of the pencil is dark brown with a bit of red tone.


#04 This is the lightest out of all 4 colors. I believe this pencil is called BLONDE and this is the first pencil I bought because I use this together with e/s on my brows (I just don't know why I love this extra step). Anyways, you would think this looks crazy on you as it's very light....you know what? I find this really wonderful especially for individuals who have highlights, or dyed hair in lighter colors. To people like me who have darker hair color, I use this together with a nice e/s or eyebrow powder. Love love love the finish!



This is quite long, but I hope it helps you guys, especially for people who wants to know what's the difference of the P&J brow pencils! :)

Any other questions?
Don't be afraid, ask, I don't bite...

Happy weekend everybody!!!


Your askmewhats,
Nikki
