Did you know how many times I wished an eyebrow pencil would come in "Pencil and Powder" instead of the "Liquid and Powder"?
Thought bubble --- Popped and came true!
K-Palette, the world leader (in my opinion) in brow products, came up with yet another wonderful innovation! The K-Palette Lasting 2Way eyebrow Pencil and aside from it being my favorite Pencil + Powder Powerpuff Girls combo....it also comes in 3 shades!
Top to bottom:
101 Light Brown
102 Natural Brown
103 Grayish BrownWhere's Reddish brown you say? Redheads out there, fret not! 102 Natural brown can still work for you!

AMW says ---
- All 3 shades are spot on!
- Very handy and easy to use.
- The pencil side is very smooth yet not too creamy so you have the "hard tip" to create short, hair-like strokes.
- The powder side is a wonderful finish in creating natural-looking brows.
- The pencil and powder are the exact shade to each other.
- You can mix and match different shades. (ex. 101 pencil against 102 powder, etc..) the combination is endless!
- No sharpening needed for the pencil.
- The powder and pencil combination lasts the whole day until removal!
- If you have extremely dark brow hairs (like I do), the powder won't "color" your brows so you may still need a separate mascara.
A wonderful selection of shades and both the pencil and powder combination gives a very natural-looking brows as an effect. It is long-lasting and stays until removal.
- I find it best to use the pencil side first before you finish up with the powder.
- Start drawing using the pencil with short, hair-like strokes starting at the center of the brows feathering out to the outer side.
- Once you reach the inner corner of your brows, draw the hair in vertical direction mimicking the "growth of your brows".
- If you have extremely dark brows like I do, use a lightening brow mascara to keep the brows from looking natural.
- Remove with regular eye makeup remover.
To whom do I recommend this to?
Brow powder and pencil users!
Shade 101 - blond to very light colored hair.
Shade 102 - colored hair and even redheads.
Shade 103 - users with black or dark colored hair. This shade is also perfect for users who do not have brows. The effect in drawing out your own brows is quite natural.
Where to purchase and how much?

Application AMW style
(for this tutorial, I used shade 101 for the effect to be more obvious on photo,
in person, I prefer shade 102)1. I like to start by filling the gaps using the pencil side starting at the center of the brows going outward.
2. Using the same pencil, I create short hair strokes in a vertical motion (same direction as the growth of your brow hairs). Try to use light-hand motion to prevent heavy-looking brows.
3. Using the powder side, start filling and "blurring" out the harsh pencil demarcation.
4. Continue filling in the powder especially on gaps to make your brows appear fuller.
Before and After
See how natural the effect is as compared to just pencil?
Have you tried using pencil and powder combination when you do your brows?
What is your favorite brow product?

Can I be honest and say, I like them all?
