Brand from Japan: Shu Uemura. The number one eyebrow pencil, hard formula is smudge-proof and long-lasting, and stands out from the crowd by the perfect hardness of the formula. If the lead is too soft, drawing fine, precise lines becomes difficult. Yet if the lead is too hard, it will not go onto skin smoothly. This unique formula consists of a mix of powder, wax, and small amounts of semi-solid oil, a winning combination that delivers the perfect hardness for ultimate precision with a powdery texture that works well with foundation upon application. Enabling precision, the unique naginata samurai sword shape is part of shu uemura's heritage, creating natural, defined brows, for both fine lines and wider areas. The angled tip boasts versatility, craftsmanship, and a timeless functionality that navigates ever-changing brow trends through time. The edge is used to draw precise lines as thin as hair, the side surfaces are for shading naturally or boldly, and the point is for filling in the fine gaps in the brows for a beautiful finish. Each pencil is carefully manufactured and is the epitome of Japanese craftsmanship.
