Senna Sketch-A-Brow pencil - Swatch and Review

When you ask someone the question "which part of the face is the most important point?" usually they say, it's the eyes/nose/lips. Personally, I think it's the eyebrows. Well groomed eyebrows frame the face and one can always get away with no makeup if one's eyebrows are well groomed. There are many ways to shape eyebrows. I am not talking about threading, waxing or using a tweezer to pluck. What I am talking about is using products to fill them in. I have shown in many of my makeup videos how I fill my eyebrows. Products I use, to mention a few, include Mac dipdown fluidline, H&M brown eyebrow pencil and Senna eyebrow duo.

Here are links to some of the videos and blog posts I have made that are related to eyebrows.

Recently, Senna Sketch-A-Brow pencil (LINK) has become my new favorite. I am using the shade Mink. This is the darkest shade in their range.

As you can see from the above swatch pic, you can build the intensity to suit your natural eyebrow. One stroke for light definition, two strokes for those areas that need more filling in. Multiple strokes for someone who has dark hair and need heavy filling in. I usually use one stroke for my inner half and multiple strokes for the outer half as I don't have much hair there. Since my hair is dark, this method seems to work well.

Do you agree that eyebrows frames the eyes and face or is it just me?

- Highly pigmented pencil. Don't need much effort to dispense the product.
- Long wearing (I tested it on a rainy day, slept with it on and also cooked - no fading whatsoever)
- The little comb helps to tame the stray hairs.

- None (so far)... :)

I absolutely adore this eyebrow pencil. It doesn't require sharpening like a conventional eyebrow pencil as it is a retractable. Another benefit is that the tip does not break off easily when applied with a heavy hand (I am heavy handed!).

You can find Senna Cosmetics here (US site) & here (UK site).

What is your favorite eyebrow product?
