AMW Reviews: The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Auto Eyebrow

Friday madness!  I am going mad because I have scheduled dinner plans starting tonight til the weekend!  Yes, food makes me crazy!  Isn't it obvious I love food?

Anyways, remember my Korea Trip last year?  I purchased a lot of eyebrow pencils because I found Korean-made eyebrow pencils to be inexpensive at the same time performs really well!  

For the first time in many gigs, I actually lost my Tears Line and Mode Autobrow and thank goodness it's not that expensive for me to cry river of tears!

Time to try out other brands of eyebrow pencils I purchased!  Next in line...The Face Shop's Lovely ME: EX Auto Eyebrow.  Don't ask me what ME:EX means but I'll definitely share to you how I feel about the said product!


Both sides have a protective cap
Left side is the eyebrow pencil
Right side is a spoolie
The Face Shop Lovely ME-EX Auto Eyebrow says ---
Convenient eyebrow enhancer that gives a subtle and natural shade . Define and restructure your brows with this practical and precise pencil. Comes with a screw brush for better finished look.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Nice, simple packaging.
  • Packaging includes manufactured date, you know how "fresh" the product you purchase!
  • Automatic, no sharpening needed.
  • Includes a spoolie brush which makes it more convenient to brush your eyebrows to make the effect more "natural looking".
  • Shade 04 (which is the lightest I believe) suits me perfectly!  
  • Inexpensive!
  • Stays for more than 8 hours.  Picture below shown my brows after more than 10 hours of humidity and heat!
  • Though the pencil is short as shown on photo below, it can last 2-3 months of daily usage (depending on how thick you draw your brows)
  • The pencil does not transfer to my eye area or to the face.
Cons
  • I can't seem to find any for now!
Overall
Great inexpensive eyebrow pencil!

Tips
  • Choose the eyebrow pencil close to your hair color!
  • Draw with light, feather-like strokes.  Always stand back and check your reflection against the mirror.
  • If you think you overdrawn your brows, use the spoolie and brush your eyebrows until it lightens. 
  • Do not twist too much as you may break the eyebrow pencil.
  • Wash the spoolie brush from time to time.
  • Do not forget to wipe your brows with eye makeup remover at the end of the day!  Most people forget this area!
  • Try on testers and always stand back and take a look on your "overall look" in front of a mirror before you purchase!  Try to check out your brows in natural light! 
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes to use eyebrow pencil and hates sharpening!

Where to purchase and how much?
Locally at The Face Shop.  I don't know how much it's sold locally but definitely not over Php500.00!

04 shade is equivalent to Blond shade of other eyebrow pencils
I chose lighter shade as my eyebrows are dark to start with


Gently draw the brows, filling in spaces with light, gentle strokes
Don't worry if it gets a bit darker than what you want


To lessen the pigmentation and to make it more natural looking, use the spoolie brush and gently brush your eyebrows as shown on photo below!  Stand back after brushing and fill in spaces again if you see any!


Again, I chose 04 because it lightens the shade of my eyebrows to match my hair color!


I'm glad to review something I bought from Korea that you guys can easily purchase!
Eyebrows "sketcher" out there, have you tried this eyebrow pencil?

Happy weekend!
Keep smilin'

Stay happy!

  1. Oh this is great :) I've never used an eyebrow pencil before, because I have thick eyebrows. I might get this just to lighten my eyebrow colour.

    Do you have other recommendations for lightening eyebrows without dyeing?

  9. I have this and it can last for a long time. I think I bought this last year pa and it's still long although I only use it like 3-4 times a week. :) I just recently bought the eyebrow kit from wet n wild but i still go back to my face shop auto eyebrow pencil. I find it much easier to use especially if you're in a hurry. :)

  12. Thanks for the review and the tip on putting on an eyeliner. I've been having trouble with it and always end up having it much darker. Now, I think I know how. Thanks, again!!!

  13. @Krys To lighten up your brows without dyeing it, using a light eyebrow pencil like what I did or eyebrow powder is enough! If you use eyebrow powder though, I suggest you coat it with an eyebrow wax to make it stay for the whole day! :)

  14. @Marge I think this is a different line under the "Lovely" line :)

  16. @Ahleessa Agree! I purchase mostly automatic liners or brow pencils! Too lazy to sharpen

    ReplyDelete
  17. @xin You? Messy brows? When? I have a feeling your brows are super neat :)

  18. @Abby I'm not sure how much this is locally but I got it for Php200+ which I think the price down here is not too far!

  19. @blushingpinkcheeks no problem, my pleasure to share my thoughts on this!

  20. @Kat_m ahh lucky you, me, I think I use mine up faster because I like drawing my brows a bit thicker, and I use them almost everyday :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Mona I hope you can find one! Even if not you can just go for any eyebrow pencil they offer! I find most Korean made brow pencils are all great!

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Issa Ahhh, you have to control your strokes and maybe you did purchase a very dark pencil color! You can still use it but after application, keep on brushing your brows with a brush or spoolie! :) It'll lighten up :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the shape of your eyebrows, I wish mine were fuller on the outer corner -_-

    ReplyDelete
  24. @cjx3pooh Try to draw it a bit thicker as what you're used to? have you tried it :D
