If there is one thing that I absolutely suck at when it comes to makeup, it’s doing my brows. I see all these perfect brows on other people and no matter what I do, mine never seem to look flawless, heck, they don’t even look good. I admit, that I was more than a bit apprehensive when I was sent a Lin&Lo Mineral Makeup Eyebrow Pencil to review.
There was a near panic moment, thinking how the hell am I going to show this on my brows?! The one thing I just can’t do well!
But, I’ll get to that in a minute. First, let me tell you about Lin&Lo Mineral Makeup.
Two inspirational make-up artists Alina Milas and Laura Bouilland are behind the revolutionary creation of Lin&Lo beauty products. Both are second generation beauty experts and are from families involved in the beauty industry. It is this background that has enabled them to create the Lin&Lo make-up brand that combines the highest standards of purity and is enriched in mineral ingredients. – Lin&Lo Official Website
The great thing about all Lin&Lo products is that even the most sensitive of skins can benefit from using them.
My skin is particularly sensitive and at 46yrs old, I’m definitely no spring chicken, so I want to be using makeup that not only looks good but that actually is good for my skin too.
The Lin&Low Eyebrow Pencil contains the following ingredients:-
natural waxes, hydrogenated oils, natural oils, fatty acid esters. (+/-): preservatives, antioxidants, sunscreens, fillers (e.g. talk, silica, alumina, kaolin, clay), dyes (inorganic pigments, lacquers)
This eyebrow pencil also contains natural antioxidants and is dermatologically approved.
I found the eyebrow pencil soft and you only need light strokes to apply. Naturally, I have very dark eyebrows, so I have always found it very hard to find something that blends with my eyebrows and doesn’t look ‘too much’.
Like many, I was also guilty of over-plucking back in the 80’s and 90’s. I have been growing them out, but they are still sparse in places. Especially at the beginning of my brow. You’d never know but before I plucked my eyebrows they used to meet in the middle almost.
Using the Lin&Lo Eyebrow Pencil, I was able to fill in my eyebrows pretty successfully. I was quite proud of the end result. I know it’s not a perfect Instagram brow but then I don’t really want that. I just want my brows to look as natural as possible but to fill in the sparse areas and give them a little more shape.
After all, eyebrows are probably the most important feature on your face. They frame your face and really can make or break your whole look.
Now, as for the staying power of the Lin&Lo Eyebrow Pencil, I only wore it for about 4hrs or so. It didn’t budge in that time.
I will definitely be using this eyebrow pencil whenever I do my brows because I found it so easy to work with. I definitely need the practice too!
How Much Is The Lin&Lo Eyebrow Pencil?
Considering this is mineral makeup, I think the eyebrow pencil is pretty good value for money as it is only £14.00 RRP.
