Ah yes, among the NUMEROUS irritations of getting older, there are unruly eyebrow hairs. The ones that kink during the night, turn at right angles and refuse to lie smoothly. Previously I wrote about covering gray eyebrow hairs using Paula’s Choice eyebrow tint but unfortunately this product doesn’t quite do the trick for keeping eyebrow hairs in place. So, I was thrilled to discover the NYX Eyebrow Shaper pencil. It’s a wax pencil that tames those darn hairs.
If you haven’t heard of NYX Cosmetics, it is a smaller cosmetics company that makes affordable good quality makeup. The two matte shadows in the photo below are some of my latest favorite eyeshadows. (There does come a point in one’s life where shimmer/shine shadows look awful.) Best of all these are affordable. I paid about $8 for the wax pencil and $4 or so for the eyeshadows. I’ve seen some combo packs of NYX eyeshadows at Nordstrom Rack. I bought my pencil and eyeshadows at Ulta but for the best selection try their website.
P.S. This pencil would be great for men whose eyebrows need a little taming.
