When I was introduced to Shu Uemura's Eyebrow Manicure, I knew it was something I needed. True enough, I use it on a daily basis especially when I want a no-makeup look. Since it's waterproof I don't need to worry about the appearance of my eyebrows mid-day.
Aside from holding hair in place, as what most eyebrow gels do, this product also fills the brows with color. You'll end up with a look that's more natural as compared to using a pencil or brow powder. It's great for people whose eyebrows are pretty much defined and just have some tiny sparse areas that need filling out - in my case, a tiny spot near the arc.
The applicator is similar to that of a mascara except its smaller. However, I think it would be great if Shu Uemura reduced this by half a centimeter - it'll make it less likely to go over eyebrows. Or maybe I'm just clumsy sometimes and go over :)
For brunettes, Palm Beige 04 (pictured below) is the way to go. You know what they say, don't get a color that matches your hair exactly. Instead, pick something lighter.
What I find a bit strange is that the company's website doesn't have this product listed but it's not discontinued. So you'll need to check out a Shu Uemura counter in your area or purchase it from an online retailer. Either way, it's a great addition to your kit.
