Of all the ways to do brows, using a liquid brow pen is the only one I had never tried. Seeing the Graymelin Tattoo Eyebrow pen* actually made me nervous at first. I have thick brows to begin with and liquid brow pens are usually best for girls with sparse brows because they allow you to draw in fine lines that mimic hairs. I imagined that using something like this on my brows would make for lines that were too harsh around the edges, while in the center it would be useless. So I suppose it’s a good thing that I received this just to put my assumptions about brow pens to the test! I love simple packaging and design. I feel like it’s so much easier to screw up than elaborate design, so I appreciate when it’s done right. This is an example of simple packaging done right (in my opinion, at least). I suggest storing products like these in a vertical position with the tip facing downward. That way, the liquid will always be at the tip. If you find that it’s too much product at the beginning, store it on its side, but towards the end of its (product) life, you’ll probably need to have it standing on its head. :)
Apologies for the long absence! Things at school have been a bit hectic of late as we’re making up for all of that time we lost when there was a storm last month. Make up classes galore! And not the kind of makeup I love, unfortunately (wow that was corny). So anyway, I have quite the backlog of posts in my drafts folder but I can’t stand to publish things that aren’t quite ready yet, so I thought I would just talk at random a bit. Still about makeup/beauty of course!
I’m only 9 days into my 4-month makeup no-buy and it’s kind of getting to me. I now avoid makeup stores because I get all sad when I look at the products. Announcements of makeup launches for fall are also killing me. Even watching my favourite Youtubers’ videos is starting to become a little difficult because all the makeup just looks so puhretty on them… and now I can’t help but wonder: did I really buy makeup so often that a ban can give me these withdrawal-like symptoms? It’s hilarious in a sad, sad way. Lol.
Before the ban started, I did make it a point to purchase some essentials that I anticipated I would run out of within the next four months. Promise that wasn’t just an excuse to go and buy stuff! I just honestly would not be able to function properly if I ran out of any of these things. It’s not an exclusive bunch, but again, these are things I’m running out of already so I thought stocking up would be wise.
