Review: Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil & Brush

19. September 2018


My favorite quick and easy product for beautiful eyebrows is eyebrow pencils. I love especially the ones with a soft texture and good but not too prominent color pay-off, and of course, they should be long-lasting, too. I was offered the Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils and an Eyebrow Brush for reviewing by Born Pretty Store and here is my impression:

Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil

Born Pretty Store is an Asian-based online store selling very affordable products, reaching from accessories to make-up and beauty products. They have a super huge amount of all kinds of nail art products and tools. I have tried many of their nail art products in the past and the products were good and affordable. >Here< are some of the products I reviewed before. I’ve been asked by the very nice people from Born Pretty Store, if I can try some of their new makeup products from their brand Bonnie Choice. I selected these two Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils and a double-sided eyebrow brush from the same brand.

Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil

The Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils are automatic eyebrow pencils that are waterproof and long-lasting. There are 6 different shades available and I chose shade 01 and shade 05, a black and an ashy brown tone. I have black eyebrows and any lighter shades will look quite strange, but these two seem to fit according to the swatches according to their product description.

The packaging of the products is simple and neat, nothing special. All the products have a signature black color and the name of the brand. Each of the pencils came packed in a cardboard box with the ingredients listed.

The Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil has two sides: one containing the bullet, which is rotatable, and the other side a brush protected by a cap. The bullet has a triangular shape and is perfect for designing eyebrows precisely. The brush is suitable for brushing the eyebrows and does its job in a good way.

The swatches of the two eyebrow pencils show off distinct colors as I expected. They are perfectly pigmented for creating a natural eyebrow look. The color stays in place after rubbing  – but only to a certain extent, of course. I would not say that it is 100% waterproof, but it will last you all day. From the two colors shade, 01 is the shade to go for me, although shade 05 can also be used, but doesn’t blend in so naturally as shade 01. You can see the swatches below, 01 on the left, and 05 on the right.

I also received an eyebrow dual-sided brush together with the two pencils. This eyebrow brush has an angled brush on one side and a helical comb on the other side. This brush is perfectly suited if you have an eyebrow palette that doesn’t come with any brushes. The angled brush is perfectly designed for creating a nice shape with your eyebrow palette, and the brush can be used to brush your eyebrows in the desired shape. Far more important is, that it is very affordable!

Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencil

All in all, we have a couple of very decent and affordable makeup products here, that will help you to achieve a nice and groomed eyebrow look. If you have been looking for cheap, but good eyebrow products go for the Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils! I really like the texture and the natural color pay-off. I personally have enough brushes, but if you are looking for a cheap and useful brush I can also recommend the Bonnie Choice Dual Eyebrow Brush.

Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils retail for 2.99 US$

Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Dual Brush retails for 1.19 US$

Review: Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon

3. November 2017


Using brow pencils on your eye brows makes such a difference in your whole appearance and yet many people here in Germany do not dare to use them, because they fear it could appear to much like painted. Together with the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors I reviewed previously I also received all shades of the Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon from the German drugstore Rossmann. I think you might be interested in the swatches for these brow crayons, because they could be really an opinion if you want a very subtle and natural look!

Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon

As I said in my last Revlon post, I’m happy to have Revlon back in German drugstores. After many years of abstinence people can now  buy Revlon products in the German drugstore chain Rossmann .Welcome back, Revlon!

The Colorstay Brow Crayons are thick brow crayons containing wax, that melt down to a powdery finish when applied. They are supposed to be waterproof and last for 24 hours.

The Crayons are available in 4 different shades:

305: Blonde

310: Soft Brown

315: Dark Brown

320: Soft Black

Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon

As you can see from the swatches below (from left to right: 305, 310, 315, 320) the color payoff of the crayons is very soft and powdery. Although it is a crayon it has a very subtle and powdery finish. The colors are perfect to create a soft look. The brightest color 305 barley shows up on my skin, so it may be a great choice for very pale skintypes and fair hair. Even soft brown will be a good option for many people with blonde or light brunette hair. In terms of staying power the swatches are resistant to rubbing, too. I couldn’t check if they last for 24 h yet though.

For me personally, having black and dense eye brows, these crayons are too soft in terms of color payoff. On the other hand I’d say that these are perfect for beginners in terms of eye brow make up, because the soft and powdery finish doesn’t show errors too much. If you never have used any brow pencil you definitely have to try out one of these!

The Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon is available for 6.39 € at Rossmann (currently on sale from 7.99 €).

Are you using brow pencils or crayons?

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

28. June 2016

I do not have many eyebrow products, since this is one of the things I only repurchase if used up, nevertheless I discovered that there are many differences between the different brands. Apart from the different brands there are also different types to enhance or fill in your brows like powders, pencils or eyebrow mascaras. The most widely known product is the eyebrow pencil though. Today I’m showing you the BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow, which I received by BNTnews for reviewing purpose this month.

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

BEIGE CHUU, formerly known as BEIGE only, is the cosmetic brand of the online retailer CHUU. They have a range of clothing and accessories, but also cosmetics products and their slogan is “I know you want to kiss me”. I’ve been following BEIGE CHUU for a while on Instagram and I’ve been curious about their products to be honest. The BEIGE CHUU Stick Foundation I reviewed yesterday is the first product I’ve been trying and here is the second product now:

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

This eyebrow pencil doesn’t need much of description since it is really only a piece of wood pencil with a plastic cap. No additional brush, no included sharpener, simply an eyebrow pencil made from hard wood.

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

The BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow doesn’t even come sharpened in first place, which makes it special. Instead you can sharpen it by yourself. In the picture above I sharpened it using a normal sharpener. But then I saw the instruction on the product page showing how to sharpen these. This is great for people who want to sharpen the pencils by themselves, because they want a special flatness for example. You can decide how flat or round you want your eyebrow pencil. Below is my first try sharpening it, and as you can see I’m not much talented…and my blade was not sharp enough anymore :D But it was definitely fun to try it, although my pencil shrunk very drastically during my trial :’D

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

As the name suggests, this eyebrow pencil has a hard texture. It only gives a light pigmentation, too, and you won’t be able to accidentally overdo your eyebrows since the color is really soft. The dark brown color was perfect for my dark brows. The pencil is available in 5 shades totally.

Review: BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow

The BEIGE CHUU Hard Finish Wood Pencil Eye Brow will be a good choice for anyone who wants to customize their eyebrow pencil and who like a natural finish. The soft texture of the hard type pencils are good for people who try out pencil eyebrows for their first time, but the sharpening with the blade needs some practice. This eyebrow pencil retails for 12 US$ from the official BEIGE CHUU shop. You will find the video for sharpening there, too!

Review: Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil

20. November 2014


I bought this Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil together with the Innisfree Eyeshadow Crayon and the Soy Essence Mascara during some sale at Testerkorea, and I must admitt that I love all three products and use them on daily basis, which makes me even more happy, considering the money I could save while buying these. :)

Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil

Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. Innisfree products are ususally free from harmful ingredients. Innisfree Eco Eyebrow Pencil is said to be formulated with green tea extracts. Moreover it is paraben free, artificial scent free, mineral oil free, animal nature material free, phthalate free, acrylamide free, dioxin free, formaldehyde free, and talc free, which makes it a 9-free product. This twistable eyebrow pencil comes in a plastic pencil tube with two different ends. The packaging not special and simply white except of the brand name written on it.

Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil

The pencil is available in 4 different shades: 01. grey, 02. black, 03. brown and 04. deep brown. I bought shade No. 03 in brown. One of the caps is labelled with a sticker displaying the shade of the pencil. The other cap has the manifacture date printed on. If you remove the caps you’ll find that one side of the pencil contains the actual brow pencil, a flat shaped bullet, the other end is a eyebrow brush or also called “Spoolie Brush”. It is very useful to have both in one product, it makes using the pencil easier, if you brushed your eyebrows first and also it is convenient to take this in a bag or for travelling.

Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil

The color of the pencil is a solid brown color and it is easy to blend out, but not too creamy either. It looks very natural when filling the brows and can also be used with darker eyebrows (mine are dark/brown/black). Below you’ll see how it looks applied. The flat bullet makes it easy to draw the desired eyebrow shape, too.

Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil

I’m usually using the Etude House Perfect Eyebrow Kit for my eyebrows, and this is the first Korean flat eyebrow pencil I’ve been trying, so I don’t have any comparison yet. A lot of people like the one from Etude House, too, it seems.

EDIT 2017: I love the Innisfree Eco Eyebrow Pencil and the soft texture and yet strong pigmentation. The name from this pencil was changed from Innisfree Eco Eyebrow Pencil to Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil.
