AMW Reviews: Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil

It is very important to draw one's brows correctly!  Too thin brows may make you look old, too thick brows may make you look like someone who forgot to trim their brows! Everyone should master their own brows because it can indeed change your overall look!

I've married myself to Eye Brow Pencils when I first bought my Paul & Joe Eyebrow Pencils few years back, I find it easy and I can even change the shade of my dark brows to match the color of my hair!

Today, I will be talking about another Eye Brow Pencil I've been using for months because I lost the other 2! :(  So sad! I lost the Tears and The Face Shop! *sigh*

  • Automatic, no need to sharpen
  • Comes with a free brush to tidy up your brows..
  • The shape of the pencil is perfect to redefine your brows.
  • Even if you apply with heavy hand, the color comes off very natural!
  • Though the liner is short, it doesn't finish up fast.
  • Glides easy and easy to apply.
  • Comes in a lot of shades.
  • Very inexpensive for an eye brow pencil that works!
  • Stays the whole day!

  • For someone who likes lighter brows, I believe this is the lightest shade!  I'd love it if they can product 1 to 2 shades lighter eye brow pencil shades.
I will stick to what I believe in, Korean made eye brow pencils are really good!  Inexpensive yet works like a charm!

  • If you have super oily skin, lightly dust a bit of setting powder or powder foundation on your brows for the powder to absorb excess oil before you starts drawing!
  • Trim your brows if needed for them to look clean!
  • Brush your brows before you start to draw.
  • Use soft and super feather-like stroke.  
  • You can warm your eyebrow pencil at the back of your hand first.
  • Purchase the shade closest to your hair color.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?

  1. Thanks for the tips~ I like how the product is blade like to mimick the brow hairs ^_^

  2. it looks so similar with skinfood black bean eyebrows pencil that I've reviewed one week ago! maybe I'm going to buy this once I finished my skinfood pencil =D thanks for the review

  3. just a question, if 01 is dark brown and 03 is brown wouldnt 03 be a lighter color?

  4. I love pencils that I don't need to sharpen.

  5. awww etude house is just love, i've had more hits than misses on their products since i started to love them.
    it's bloggers like you who actually reply to us that make us keep coming back. i can't emphasize enough the fact that you reply to our comments and tweets make the whole blogging experience more personal and it's truly endearing. more power to bloggers and women like you who always have a smile to share. ika nga nila 'fighting!'

  6. this one im definitely going to buy, thanks for sharing~

  7. oh golly now im thinking of getting this and a white pencil liner :)
    Check Out my Giveaway Ladies :)

  8. Thanks for this review, I am so getting a pencil or two. I love the shape. Right now, if I'm not using MAC Lingering (which I don't use often kase mahal, hihi), I use Ever Bilena and shape it with a blade, delikado. Now I won't have to do that with the Etude House pencil!

  9. I should start learning how to fill my eyebrows :)

  10. Ohh I like the shape! And it's cheap! Been using brow powder though, ang hirap ubusin! Haha :)

  11. im using the faceshop brow powder duo , i think i need to try this one out. maybe u have an idea if there's an online market that i can purchase this? Im here in Subic kasi...
    thank u for the nice review! :)

  12. oh, i wanna buy this! i've been looking for something that will lighten my dark brows! i still have a lot of eyebrow powder though...

  13. I wanna try this one next time! I still have my revlon eh.. finish up ko muna hehe... great review miss Nikki!

    Much Love!


  14. nice... interesting shape of the pencil brow.. never tried something like that.. thanks for the review!

  15. I have to try this. I cannot live without my 'drawn' eyebrows. Haha!


  16. too bad there's no EH branch near me, kailangan pa talagang "luwasin" sa maynila. hehe.. got lots of products that i'm so dying to try.. exag.. :) but i'm loving the reviews of EH prods

  17. is the brown shade as light as color my brows (?) 01? i like how it looks natural on you, but i really need to find eyebrow color that matches my light hair color.

  18. I'm so getting myself one! I'm currently using the StyliStyle Flat liner, but I like that this is automatic and has a brow brush on the other side... so convenient!

  19. I love how the refills only cost 75 pesos I believe

  20. @PopBlush Yes, agree! I like how easy it is to apply too!

  21. @Lina Kim ♥ Ahh why am I not surprised? I agree that a lot of the Korean Made eyebrow pencils look almost the same :) Thanks

  22. @sweetkiss I asked the same question but when it was swatched on my hand, the 01 is lighter :)

  23. @Marge Aawww Marge! With readers and co-blogger like yourself, it makes blogging such an easy task ! parang talking to friends lang talaga! Yun nga lang everyone can read! hahahha

  24. @Kitten Yay! Let me know how it works for you!!! *excited mode*

  25. @aMz88 Me too, I'm now searching for a good creamy matte pencil liner

  26. @Dea Ay! I agree with you about the "delikado" , before when I still sharpen my pencils, naku! I felt like I'm cutting off my finger anytime! :P

  27. @Iyah Girl! Do you even need to? Your brows are MAGANDA!

  28. @Kari AY! Agree, I used MAC Coquette before and I saw the pan na pero di pa din ubos! now I'm addicted to pencils! kaya goodluck, di na talaga maubos!

  29. @magz13 Ahhh Subic, no chance to visit Metro Manila? or if you have friends who will visit you there and you can ask them to buy? I believe there are some online resellers at Multiply or Ebay.ph :)

  30. @Issa Does your eyebrow powder stays the whole day? well if it works, finish it up first :) tapos go for pencils naman para maiba!

  31. @JesRoque Me too! it seems weird if I go out without drawing/filling in my brows

  32. @Belle ah I understand you, I felt the Megamall branch is far from me kahit na 15 min walk lang! hahahaha pag tinatamad talaga :P

  33. @Anonymous Well if you want lighter shade, look for eyebrow pencils that's named either LIGHT BROWN or BLONDE , that is best used for really light hair! This one from Etude House is a bit too dark for you if your hair is very light!

  34. @Hollie yes, agree with you, the brush on the other side plus the automatic is really a great selling point

  35. @katatonik A really? I didn't even know there is a refill for this!

  36. @Askmewhats
    actually have to ride some jeepneys, bus and tricycles to get there i guess. :) pretty far really. would literally take me 3 hours at least to get to megamall. hahaha :)

  37. Etude house also have the 'color my brows', i just bought mine in light brown to match my new hair color :)

  38. may i take the picture ? :) it looks so official >.< and clear :D

  39. @mj Nice to know, thanks for sharing!

  40. Hi! I have thick eyebrows, not groomed yet but has a shape. I want to lightly color them with this. Will it work for me?



    1. If you want to lightly color your brows, I think you need a tinted brow gel! Since you said your brows are thick, it is easier to lighten it with a brow gel.

  41. Gosh, I've been using this for years! Since Etude House started here in the Ph and even recommended this to my colleagues. I use 01 priced at PhP129 and buy refills for PhP75 only! Always sold out this shade in stores so I always buy refills for back-up. I just love it! I use this with MAC Brow Set in Beguile. Perfect combination! I'm a brow addict myself. Will try K-Palette soon or MUFE Eyebrow Corrector (though applying this one is tricky, MUA levels! hehe).

    1. Good for you that you are trying out different brands! I can't seem to finish them all up as I hoarded so much during my Korea trip!!! We must've tried these at the same time as Etude House was just opening up stores when I got these in Korea! :) I never thought they'll be coming over and I thought I need to hoard or no chance in the future to do so at all! :P

  42. Hi Just wanted to know what shade is the lightest color for Etude House?
