Spotlight | The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Design My Eyebrow.

As many of you already know, I have a great obsession with my eyebrows and a penchant for eyebrow products. Today I'll be featuring another eyebrow product from one of my favorite Korean brands, The Face Shop. They've recently opened a branch here in SM San Pablo, making it easier for me to restock on my all-time favorite products such as the Power Perfection BB Cream and Velvet Skin Primer.

Anyhoo, this is the Lovely ME:Ex Design My Eyebrow, which sells for Php 228 (about $5) a pop.
Design My Eyebrow. 
It's an automatic eyebrow pencil that comes in five different shades - Gray Brown, Dark Brown, Black Brown, Brown, and Dark Gray.
#4 Brown.
Mine is the #4 shade, Brown. I reckon it's also the lightest among the five shades.
As per label, this product is good for 24 months upon opening. :)
Now here's how the product looks like.
Slanted tip.
The retractable, slanted tip is perfect for shaping brows and filling it (the eyebrows, I mean) in with color. It has a unique, triangle shape which allows you to create thick lines for the inner eyebrow and thin lines towards the outer part.
Unique, triangle shape.
It also comes with a spoolie, which is an important tool in blending the color and making your brows look natural.
Yay for the spoolie! :)
And now, the swatches.
Thick and thin.
The shade comes off light at first, but it's quite buildable. It has great staying power, too as I was able to wear this for about 12 hours with a primer on. Best of all, the shade is a good match for my current hair color.

What I love:
- Easy to use.
- Unique triangle shape allows you to create precise strokes with varying thickness.
- Buildable color.
- Fills in color evenly.
- Great staying power.
- Comes with a spoolie.
- Five different shades to choose from.
- Affordable price.

What you might not like:
- I broke the tip twice!
Putting extra pressure on the pencil can make the tip snap! :(
Ugh. Pardon the tired eyes. 
Products used:
FACE: The Face Shop Velvet Skin Primer,
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream, Missha Under Eye Brightener,

This product is now a staple in my makeup kit and has easily become one of my favorites. I recommend this to just about anyone, even to makeup newbies! :)

I have the brow of a man so this beauty tool is tailored for me. Must put it on my Christmas wish list.

Great review as always!

My eyebrows sometimes need a little help--but do they sell this in the US or would I have to go online?

You have beautiful brows!! I am always on the look out for new brow pencils, have you tried K palette's 24 hr brow pencil!

This brow pencil seems as good as mine so I wouldn't be purchasing unless I finished mine ^_^

is it long lasting or madaling mabura? BYS have this style pero un nga daling mabura

This one is very similar to EH. I have this in pencil, pa and I super love it as it matches the color of my hair. I think I'll try this when I finished my pencil as it's more convenient to use.

I'm so inggit with your brows! It's pretty neat. Honestly, I don't really know how to trim or shape my brows. And I don't know how to use eyebrow products din. Haha. Ano ba mas madali at magandang gamitin? Eyebrow pencil (the one who needs sharpening) or something like this? :)

That product is a little similar to Majorca I have yet to go to Face Shop again though but I am a super fan of doing eye makeup - thus, anything of brow related is a thumbs up to me! <3

I love how it looks on you! When I run out of K-Palette I might give it a try since it's very affordable :)

Sam Lanuza said...

I owned this for a year already. No review yet. hahaha but I super love it too, the angular shape of the wax makes defining the brows easy :)

Aya said...

Your brows look great, sis! I have something similar to this (from another brand, though), and I love it for everyday! It looks natural on the brows, plus the angled tip is easy to use :)
