Ilove a good arch enhancer, as it really brings your eyes out and defines the brows for a nice sharp polished look. This one by Shavata is very easy to use with the simple pencil design, that easily glides on the skin, without pulling and causing unnecessary discomfort.
This pencil does need to be sharpened regularly to maintain accurate results as it gets blunt after a couple of uses, but it definitely will last a good couple of months. I am normally used to liquid highlighters or powders, that can sometimes be harder to control for accurate results when defining the brow bone and enhancing the overall shape, whereas this pencil gives you much better control with the sharp nip and more structured results. The only downside I have to this pencil is the fact it’s really light on my skin!
I’ve swatched this above and you can notice it has beautiful pink undertones that really accentuate the brow bone and shape, but unfortunately, on my pale complexion, you can’t really notice this as much when photographed. I would have included photos of this in action, but after blending the product in using my fingertips, the camera couldn’t pick it up so well 🙁 but in person, this really does make a huge difference and brings out my eyes. This brow enhancer does have a matte finish without a shimmer, which might be a problem for some people! I know in the past I’ve loved shimmer highlighters under my brow, as it just adds more attention and brightness, but I have also used powder matte formulas that work just as good, and that’s where this pencil comes into it.
Again this is down to personal preference, but I feel this really lifts and brightens the eye area beautifully and naturally! Another great use I find from this is in-between getting my eyebrows done. I get my eyebrows professionally down every month or so at the Benefit Brow Bar, and love using this pencil to cover re-growth, I also use the Shavata Tweezers to pluck stray hairs in-between appointments and find both of these make a great duo. The Shavata Brow Enhancer can also be used on the cheekbones or as a face highlighter, making it a great all in one for your money! I haven’t personally tried this on my cheekbones but feel it would work great as a highlighter 🙂
What’re your thoughts on this? Do you use a brow enhancer?
