Packaging:
Each Brow Contour Pro comes in a pink box with instruction at the back. Inside, you will get the instruction too and the pen/pencil. If you are familiar with multicolored ballpoint clicky pens with four different color, this is exactly what the packaging looks like. The color of the pen/pencil packaging is silver with four clicking button at the top and the packaging is actually plastic but sturdy. At the top, there is a word on what shades that you should click. How convenient is that.
Instruction and pen/pencil :)

How to use:
To use the pen, just select the shade you want (I used lighter shade first), and then push down the button for the color and then twist the barrel of the pen to get the product to come out of the tip. Make sure, you don't twist the barrel of the pen too much because once the product comes out, you cannot twist back the pencil.

Personally, the tip of this brow pen/pencil is actually quite big and flat for me.


Color/ Pigmentation:
The brow products are very pigmented even when you apply with light hand, it is still can fill out your eyebrow. This shade works fine for me at the moment with my brown hair color, but I don't think the color will suit with all kinds of different hair color even the lighter shades, I still feel the color is dark for me. As for the definer and highlighter, both shades is pigmented however for highlighter shade, I didn't notice any shimmery instead I feel the color more to concealer.

Texture/ Finish:
For concealer or definer, I appreciate that they come out with this too because I feel that my brows not precise at all once I draw it on my eyebrow because the tip quite big and flat so, if I use this pencil, I cannot skip the concealer/definer at all. Surprisingly the texture of this pencil is really creamy. They are definitely easy to blend either with finger or brush. The texture more to creamy side or in a stick form formula to be exact. You don’t need to put a lot of pressure when you draw your eyebrow, thanks to the creamy formula and the pigmentation.

Lasting power:
I didn’t have any problems with lasting power on my brows.  They last the whole day (more than 8 hours) then started to slightly fade at the ends of my brows and slightly in the front as well.

Fragrance:
No fragrance detected.


Okay, now let’s try this product on!


STEP 1: To start off, click or press down lighter shade button and start filling your eyebrow from inner part of your eyebrow to arch.

*Tip*: Before you draw your eyebrow, apply some of your eyebrow primer first or if you don’t have eyebrow primer, you can use eyeshadow primer. This will help the brow last longer and would be able to pick up more product as well!  The result is BOOM! kikiki

STEP 2: Next, by pressing down deeper shade button, draw a shape eyebrow line from arch to end. 

*Tip*: combine lighter & deeper shades to create natural eyebrow looks and also don’t forget to comb the brow to remove any excess product.


STEP 3: For more define and clean edges looks, press down definer button and start creating a line below the brow from inner part to end while for above brow, line from arch to end and blend. You can use your finger or any small brush to blend. 


STEP 4: Press down highlighter button and apply directly beneath your arch and then blend outward and your eyebrow is done. 

*Tips*: Make sure to comb the brow after you finish shaping and highlighting the brow.
