We all know how important our brows at this stage of Instagram.  You see posts with #BrowsOnFleek and you wonder how you can do the same for your brows!  Thankfully, one of the most trusted brand in the beauty industry FINALLY came up with their Brow Now Collection.

In this collection, they featured assortment of innovative brow products in expertly selected shades and I got my hands on the Brow Defining Pencil in shade Brunette!

AMW says ---

  • Very easy to use. 
  • Comes in 4 shades making it easy to get the right match for you.
  • The pencil is not too soft nor too hard.  Just the right texture making it easy to blend.
  • The effect is very natural.
  • Water and sweat-resistant.  My brows look almost the same for the whole day.
  • Pigmentation is good,  no need to press hard to fill in brows.
  • Both caps can be easily misplaced.
  • You need a separate sharpener for the pencil side.

An easy-to-use brow pencil that comes in 4 shades to match your hair color.  It goes on smoothly on every application and the effect is extremely natural.

  • Fill in brows starting at the center using short-hair-like strokes.
  • Always start with light touch and build intensity.
  • Applied too much?  Use the spooly side and brush off excess pigments.
  • Store in cool dry place, do not keep this inside your car or the pencil side may melt.
  • Brunette shade would look great on users with light brown hair.
Will I repurchase?YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Users with sparse brows wanting to fill and define their brows.

Application technique:
I always light to brush my brow hair going upwards when I start at the inner corner of my brows and gently brush away towards the hairline.
Using the pencil side, start by applying hair-like strokes starting at the center of my brows to the ends.

Now on to the inner corner, flip the application to "upward" motion mimicking the direction of hair growth.  Once happy, use the spooly and brush off excess pigment for a natural effect.

Can you see the difference?
I like how the pencil can coat some of my brow hairs making it less "black" as opposed to other brow pencils who can just "fill in brows" leaving the rest of the brows dark and unnatural.
