One of the makeup item that I buy and stock up is eyebrow pencil. Back in February 2012 I went to Kanebo warehouse sales and bought some as it’s really cheap for a Kanebo.
Kanebo Coffret D’or W Styling Eyebrow Holder and Pencil is sold separately. The holder is sold for RM20 after discount and RM18 for the pencil refill. At first I was a bit skeptical about the concept. I mean if you’re buying from counter at normal price, the price overall is kinda expensive for an eyebrow pencil. But then I rethink again. I only need to buy the holder once. And refill would be cheaper for long run. So I bought 5 refill at one go as Coffret D’or is pulling out from Malaysia market at that time. Now that I’m on my 2nd refill I thought it’s appropriate for me to share with you my lil thoughts.
Each holder and refill is packed individually.
Seriously, I like the holder very much. It’s not that cheapo type of material. It’s made from high quality material with a simple shiny Coffret D’or brand stamped.
When I mentioned refill…you must have thought of the lead right? Well, in this case the refill is half portion of the whole pencil which comes with the same aluminium material with the holder.
Combining the both is easy. Just insert the non-aluminium portion of the refill into the holder until you hear a “click” sound. The click sound means the refill is securely inserted.
Here is the swatch. I drew a thinner line and a thicker line for you to see how it would look like. On eyebrow it look more natural. The color that I bought is dark brown.
And here’s a full face picture to show you how the eyebrow pencil looks like on me after the end of the day. My face may have a bit shine, my blusher may be gone but the eyebrow pencil still pretty much intact unless removed with eye makeup remover.
What is your favorite eyebrow pencil? Do share! I’d love to try others too.
