don’t leave home without it

7th February, 2012

Lots of girls have that one makeup item they simply won’t leave home without applying. For many, it’s mascara; for others, it’s a swipe of red lipstick. Personally, I won’t even go to the gym without employing a little brow filler. When my eyebrows are on point, I feel like my whole face is in focus ~ even without anything else on. I’ve tried dozens over the years (powders, gels, pencils, etc.), but on this video shoot, a makeup artist introduced me to Stila’s Stay All Day Brow Pen (I use the medium tint), and I haven’t looked at another ever since!

I like that its soft brush tip allows me to make delicate-enough strokes to mimic actual brow hairs, and that it goes on dark enough to give definition, but sheer enough that my eyebrows never look painted-on. My only complaint is that each pen only lasts me a couple weeks ~ but that’s why I’ve been ordering them in bulk, so I never have to go a day without it!!

What’s the one product you won’t leave home without?

    thank you so much for introducing me to something new 🙂 I use the M.A.C brow pencil but maybe I will try this one out 🙂

    This is similar to Japan’s KPalette.

    thanks for this, my brows are the most important for me since I have to draw them on everyday (i have alopecia) and it’s so difficult to get waterproof ones! This is perfect! 

  • Thanks for the tip! I have super light eyebrows, so I’m always looking for that holy grail product. Just ordered this and I’ll see how it works for me.

    will definitely give this a try! i usually use the anastasia brow wax&powder which has worked very well for me but I’m always opened for new things!

    Ooh! This looks nifty. I feel nekked without some shade of lip color, be it a tinted balm, gloss, or lipstick. But since my daily look involves glasses, I really should give more attention to my eye area, and my brows are in an awkward preteen-esque transition period. Thanks for the suggestion!
