I know that it’s been a while since I last posted, but I’ve been trying some great products and finally am at a point where I can share an educated opinion. And one of these fantastic newer products that I’ve been trying the last couple of weeks is PÜR Cosmetics’ Wake Up Brow pencil.
My selected shade is Blonde Roast, and it’s quite a bit lighter than what I had been using, which was Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil. But what drew me to try the PÜR pencil was the options of a highlighter plus a brow brush built into the design. And I really like the shade range available, so I decided to try the lightest shade and see how it performed.
First off, the concept of a highlighter plus brow pencil in one isn’t new to the market, but I love the fact that this shade of pale pink highlighter is not shimmery. That can be a hard thing to find, since so many highlighting products contain a lot of shimmer. You can apply the pale pink highlight either directly under the brow arch for an instant “lift” effect, or along the lower inside lash line (waterline) to brighten the eyes. Then using the brow color, it quickly applies and is just waxy enough to allow you to brush hairs into place. This contouring affect for the eyes does wonders to making you look more awake and defined without having to use a lot of makeup.
I was happy with how much definition I was able to get with this one product – the shade was perfect for giving my brows just enough color, and the application is smooth. Plus, it’s long-wearing! I love PÜR’s products in that they are conscious of ingredients, yet the performance is high-powered. My sensitive eyes and skin didn’t have any reactions, and I’m loving that I get a multi-tasking product in one. I think I just found one of my new favorite brow pencils!
