ELF Eyebrow Lifter & Filler Ivory/Light - Swatch and Review

Hello beautifuls,

Sorry for slacking off but I will make an effort to post more regularly. Ever since boss lady has banned the breaks, the work days have been feeling a little more draining. On the plus side, I've been getting more sleep and not having trouble sleeping anymore. As a matter of fact, I now feel that no matter how much I sleep I still want to sleep, lol. 

Anyways, let's get this review moving so I can also work on other posts too...

  • Dual ended pencil. On one side, we have the brow filler, which also includes a pencil sharpener cap and on the other side we have the lifter. 
  • I got this brow pencil in the lightest shade, which is a medium cool-toned brown filler and a peachy pink nude lifter. 
  • Both color feel creamy and a bit waxy. I was quite happy that the light brown filler actually works out for me even if I have dark brown hair. The color is lighter than what I'm normally used too but it still gives me enough color to define my brows and keep them looking natural. I'm not really a fan of really dark brows. It doesn't look right on my face. I find the waxy texture also help tame the brows a bit.
  • Now you need extra tools, not included with the package, in order to create natural looking brows. You'll need either a spoolie or a dense small eyebrow brush to blend in the brow color. The lifter works well for creating a defined edge underneath your brows and highlight your brow bone. You'd also need a dense brush to blend it out. I wouldn't use it on the top part of the brows though. The pink undertone just doesn't look right up there. It's best to use a concealer that matches your skin tone if you want to outline the outer part of the brows. 

Final Thought

I'm not crazy about the cap sharpener but it is convenient for traveling if you don't want to bring along another pencil sharpener. The filler and lifter has the right about of pigmentation and creaminess to work as intended but if I had it my way, I would prefer the brow filler on one end and an eyebrow brush on the other end since I don't care much for the lifter.  The color stay put through most of the day as long as you're careful not to rub your brows.

  1. Cheap and good comes to mind! I've yet to own any brow pencils but I'm looking forward to getting one from etude house or lioele! I like the flesh color, great for the underbow!
