Holla sista! How's life going lately?
A couple days ago, I and my friends discussed about how people despise beauty bloggers. Well, I personally don't consider myself as a beauty blogger (hey, I've never got endorsements from anybody) but yes, do I love to get sponsors. Back to the topic, I know that most blogs usually only give good reviews. That's why some people don't trust the reviews. However, I would like all my readers to know that everything I write in my blog is real, not a make up post just to please readers. If most of my reviews are positive, it's because I don't really like writing something that is bad.
Okay. Talking about positive-negative reviews, I finally have a gut to write a review about this product. This Milani Brow Tint Pen has been in my make-up stash like for ages. I bought it about two months ago in one of the online shops on FaceBook. At that time, I was so stunned by bunch of reviews I read that I decided to buy it immediately.
If you are a beginner when it comes to your brows, this felt-tip marker will be a highlight in your make-up routine. Promising a long-wearing, quick-drying, and buildable brow marker formula, this product--that comes in two different shades-- is also paraben-free and made in Germany. When I tried it on my brows, I notices that the pigmentation is fairly sheer and I had to apply it a couple times to get the colour I wanted. What I love about this product is the felt-tip pen makes me able to shape my brows precisely. Another good thing is it gives me a very natural appearance. Mine's the Dark Brown one and it works perfectly well for my brows without making them look too dark or overpowering.
Sadly, this product is not waterproof. I figured out about this in the most humiliating way. One day I wore this to my office. My brows looked great until I took a wudhu for praying. I found out that there was brown stain all over my face! It was a total disaster! Just look at the picture. You can literally see the brown streaks on my face.
Despite the not-waterproof formula it has, I do use it occasionally. For example, when I have to go to the supermarket nearby and I don't wanna put a lot of effort, this product comes out very handy. I also use this when I'm in a rush and I don't wanna go outside bare face. Beside that, I won't use it because I know I will have my wudhu. Emm, another thing is I definitely won't use this during rainy season. You know what will happen if you walk under the rain.
Now, let's go down to the final verdict:
What I love about this product:
- The shade fits perfectly on my brows and looks natural.
- Felt tip for a precise brow styling.
- Paraben Free (yeaaay!)
- Very handy when I'm in a hurry.
- No need to sharpen it!
- Quite cheap for a non-local product.
What I don't like about this product:
- NOT WATERPROOF
- Not available in Indonesia.
