The L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Xpert Pencil is not only a great product; it has an incredible shade range
My favourite brow product of recent times is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. It gives the most lovely, natural result any eye product can give. BUT that result requires more time than I'm prepared to give in the morning. You must perfect the 'point and flick' technique in order to achieve the result, which means flicking on individual faux hairs. If I have an hour to get ready, that's fine. But in the morning, I'm a paint and go kind of gal. That's where the L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Xpert Pencil comes in.
Groomed brows, some mascara and lip colour are the easiest ways to look like you've made an effort, even when you only gave 1% of your soul to the job. That's when easy to use products come in handy. I'm obsessed with the Charlotte Gainsbourg for NARS lip tint (that lasts for hours), and the Miss Baby Roll from L'Oreal is such a good new mascara.
L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Xpert Pencil €7.99
The L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Xpert Pencil is the best budget brow product to be released in quite some time. Application is simple; you just stroke it on. The triangular, tapered head allows you to vary the degrees of thickness. The staying power is excellent, too. It's all-round brilliant, but perhaps the best thing about it is the shade range, there are eight shades to choose from (Cool Blonde - Ebony).
Aisling likened this to my when-I-have-time favourite the Benefit Goof Proof; both pencils are retractable and come with an extremely handy spoolie on one end. It's much cheaper than Benefit though, and it's a winner in my book.
Oh, and I must mention the Brow Artist Plumper, too, another newbie in L'Oreal's brow range. It's more of a brow mascara, with a teeny tiny triangular stump of a wand (a good thing). It's a gel formula containing fibres that volumise the brow. I sweep it on after using the pencil and poof! I'm a light brown haired not-beautiful Elizabeth Taylor.
