I don't know why but I seem to have a mental block against doing an eyebrow post. I've been wanting to do one for months but haven't done so and I had gone through several different eyebrow products that I thought I'd review. It's probably because I have the ugliest, practically non-existent eyebrows ever. Hopefully I'll do a post on how I do my eyebrows but giving you fair warning--it's scary!
For the past few months, actually close to a year, I've been on the lookout for a good eyebrow product that would be somewhat natural looking and waterproof as well as smudge proof. I thought, several times, that I found THE product but then moved on to something else. I had really been wanting to try the K-Palette Real Lasting Liquid Eyebrow Pen since I really love the eyeliner pen. After reading some reviews online, I came across this Tony Moly 7 Days Tatoo Eyebrow. (That's how they spell it.) The reviews said that it was very much similar to the K-Palette one. I decided to try it mainly because I could go to the store and buy it instead of having to order it online--I wanted instant gratification.
There is only one color, which is 02 Dark Brown. At first I found it a bit too dark but I've gotten used to it. As you can see, it's like a fine sharpie pen. I really like it because it's quite pigmented and easy to use, once you get used to using it. I had tried the NYX pen but it was a much fatter tip and I felt that it was harder to work with and didn't give as natural a look. For my inner eyebrows, I can make quick, short strokes to imitate eyebrow hairs. Once I do most of the filling in, I can fill in sparse spots by kind of dotting it in. I find that if I go in the opposite direction that the hair normally grows in, it looks more natural, although most would advise in drawing in the direction the hair grows.
While the name says 7 day tattoo, it really doesn't last 7 days. In fact, it does seem to wipe off rather easily and I can rub it off. I will say though that if I apply it to clean skin, with no skin care products, then I can go to sleep with it on and do some light touching up in the morning, which is what I wanted for those morning when I know I'm going to be in a rush. Otherwise, I normally apply it after I do my normal skin care routine.
I have just placed an order for Canmake liquid eyebrow pens, in 2 different colors. I'll try to do a review on them some time after I get it and have a chance to try it out.
