slightly very obsessive over brows, as a beauty therapist waxing and shaping brows is probably one of my fave treatments to give. You can literally change someone's face with a well shaped and groomed brow. Brows really do frame the face. Since being emotionally scared by a woman threading half my brows off into a straight line (oh the horror) I do not trust my brows with anyone, I always do them myself.
When filling my own brows in I do favour using a powder and a flat angled brush, I think you can achieve a more natural look with this technique.
A few months back my favorite powder sadly had run out, so I opened the Givenchy Paris Eyebrow show pencil in shade 1 that I was given for Christmas to give it a try.
The pencil is quit hard, which I like. I don't want a soft pencil for my brows because it can be easily smudged & that gives the 'drawn on brow' look. Number 1 is the perfect shade for me. With little light stokes you can achieve a nice natural looking brow & it is so long wearing, by the evening when I'm ready to take my makeup off, my eyebrows look exactly the same as when I had done them in the morning.

The packaging is lovely & sleek. It's double ended with a spooley on one end a pencil on the other & also comes with a sharpener, handy!
I would still say I prefer a powder on my brows but this is by far the best eyebrow pencil I have ever come across & I'm happily going to use this pencil until it turns into a short little nub.
