TWIST & DEFINE
Shavata Singh has made a name for herself in the beauty world. More specifically, the beauty of brows. She has opened over 20 brow studios around the UK and on top of that, her own range of brow products. This is the Defining Brow Pencil in Dawn. It comes in Blonde, Dawn and Dusk. Dawn is more on the warm tone brown. This shade goes well my hair colour better rather than a darker shade. It contains Vitamin E to condition the brows.
“Hold the pencil as if you are sketching and use light feather strokes, build up the colour. Start 2mm from the beginning of the brow and then use a brow brush to blend evenly. This will give a natural and professional finish.”
I’m naturally a pencil girl at heart but it’s hard to find one that’s long lasting until this came along. Going straight to the point, it lasted all day, my oils didn’t eat it up nor did it smudge when I blot! This ultra fine nib allows me to be precise, define and shape the brows with ease, leaving me with natural brows. It’s not stiff nor soft and doesn’t scratch. It’s just the perfect texture. Using light feathered strokes, I was able to build up the colour in certain areas to create dimension and a gradient effect if I fancy. If the brows ends up being too much, it’s easy to brush out and blend.
As with any pencil products, it’s easy to use and easy to control. Using this on a daily basis is quicker than if I was to use a pomade. Now I don’t have any excuse on neglecting my brows if I wake up late. There isn’t a need to sharpen the nib so that’s one less thing to carry around. Just twist then retract when you’re done.
We all know the brows are important and I wouldn’t consider this expensive or cheap; more mid range. I don’t mind spending £15 on something that is uh-mazing. Shavata understands the brow game so I would check out more of her range myself. I trust her! You can buy her range online and at the studios nationwide.
