Product Review: Models Prefer Retractable Eyebrow Pencil

Monday, 20 January 2014

If you have ever read my 'About Me' page, you would be aware that I work as an eyebrow expert. As I work with brows it's no wonder they are a it of an obsession of mine and as you can imagine, so are brow products.

I want to introduce you to my current favourite brow pencil, the Models Prefer Retractable Eyebrow Pencil.

Models Prefer is Priceline's own makeup and skincare brand. Models Prefer is said to be made by the same manufacturers that make products sold in department stores and many prestige cosmetic houses (giving luxury priced items a serious run for their money).

All the products are $20 and under (excluding tools) and are often on promo (always a good time to test something out). 

What they say:
Super longwearing brow pencil. Smudge-proof and waterproof, with an easy and accurate application.

Why I love it:
  • It doesn't smudge.
  • The packaging is simple and effective; the pencil winds up which means you don't have go worry about sharpening. It also features a nice angle on the pencil end so you can get a really defined eyebrow.
  • The spoolie (wand) on the opposite end is brilliant. I use it to first, brush the brows into shape prior to colouring in and to cement the colour into my brows and move any stray hairs into their right place post filling in my brows.
  • It comes in 3 shades: light, medium and dark (I use medium). 

Models Prefer instructions for use:
  • Choose a pencil shade that is as close to your natural brow shade as possible
  • This will ensure a natural look
  • Shape your brows to open your eyes

I feel these could be a little more user friendly, so I will provide you with my own.

How I like to use mine:
  1. Use the spoolie (eyelash wand applicator-looking end) to brush brows into desired shape.
  2. Wind up the pencil so only a small amount is exposed (as not to break it off).
  3. Draw small strokes in the direction of hair growth until desired look is achieved.
  4. Use the spoolie to brush the colour evenly through your brows and move any stray hairs that may have moved back into their rightful place.
