Holika Holika Wonder Drawing 1sec. Finish Browcara Review

If you follow me on Snapchat (@AskMeWhats) you've probably seen me unbox my first ever Althea box!  If you still follow me now, you've probably seen me unbox my 2nd Althea box.  YES!  Second, it is that addictive to shop at the newest Online Shopping site for hard-to-find Korean beauty products.   More about that later, but today, I will be sharing a review on one of the product included in the box.  The Holika Holika Wonder Drawing 1sec. Finish Browcara (can you spot it?)

AMW says ---

  • Comes in wide range of shades to choose from.
  • Has a color that is quite difficult to find for brow mascaras, a natural ash-tone brown shade that won't look orange or too yellow (01 Natural!)
  • Packaging.
  • Brush is easy to use!  
  • Product dries pretty quickly so would work even for oily-skin users!  
  • Brow hairs aren't stiff or fake-looking.
  • Waterproof.  But can be easily removed with regular eye makeup remover.
  • No clumping.
  • Adheres onto my brow hairs easily.
  • Shade number is too small I have to really take time to read it and it's all in Korean language (not a biggie unless you are a professional Make Up Artist and own a lot of brow mascara!)
  • has a faint scent (almost plastic scent but not too bad!  It goes away and you don't smell it unless you put the product close to your nose!)
I own a lot of brow mascaras to date and some doesn't make the cut in terms of the "too orange" look.  Thanks to the wide array of shades available from the brand, I get a very natural-looking browcara that lasts all day!

  • Use the short bristled side of the applicator in applying the product on to the brow hairs.
  • Use the longer bristled side to brush off excess product and keep the brows neat.
  • Application should be quick, short strokes.  Use a separate spoolie to remove excess product.
  • Use a brow powder or brow pencil if you want definition on your brows.  Brow mascaras are there to "tint" your brows, it won't make your brows appear fuller or more defined.  
  • Check out grand opening deals from the online shopping site (where I got this product) to save up even more!
Will I repurchase?
Big YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Brow product users who like to tint their brows.  01 is perfect for those who have colored hair but doesn't like how some other brow mascaras look too fake-looking or warm for their taste.

Where to purchase and how much?
I got mine at priced at Php448.00, free shipping for orders Php1,000 above.

Product packaging
Thankfully, the container is almost the same shade as the brow mascara.

I like how it is only approximately 5cm short so it is very easy to work with.

The applicator has two sides. The shorter bristles which I use to dispense the browcara onto my brow hairs and the longer bristles which I use to gently brush off excess product.

Step 1: apply Holika Hoika Wonder Drawing 1 sec. Finish Browcara the same direction as the growth of your brow hairs.  I use the shorter bristles here.
Step 2: use the opposite side of the applicator, apply more product against the direction of the growth of your brows hair to "wrap" the color on EACH brow strand for a more natural effect.

Before and After
In the before photo, I used a brow pencil to gently fill in sparse areas and as you can see, I was left with dark brow hairs at the center making my brows look unevenly and unnatural.
With the help of a brow mascara, my brows appear more natural-looking and it matches the color of my hair!
