Blushes & Dimples reviews Yanga's 'BrowLutions' Pencil.
The ´Browlution´pencil is made by the Yanga Beauty brand and it has been around for a while now. It is a retractable pencil just like M.A.C Cosmetics ´Spiked´ and ´Stud´ (I never bought those anyway).
For the benefit of those who don´t know, Yanga Beauty is a Nigerian beauty brand. Isn´t it great how Nigerians are now doing well for themselves in the Makeup industry? New brands are springing up, and most of them are really good. Yanga Beauty also has a line of liquid lipsticks (I don´t have any of them yet, but I plan to get some to use and review). The Nigerian beauty industry is now making waves and it´s indeed something to be very proud of.
Now, I like my pencils sharpened to a pointed tip because that way, I can achieve neat and natural-looking brows without any hassle. So when I saw the ´Browlution´ pictures all over Instagram, I was concerned about the fact that the pencil cannot be sharpened (since it´s the retractable).
I was wondering how it would work in achieving the light and natural kind of brows. However, after seeing that so many artists making it work, I thought 'why couldn´t I?' and placed my order.
It turns out that I was worried about nothing because sharpened or not, the pencil is just perfect and draws the kind of brows I like!
The packaging is really cute and it´s slimmer than most pencils. Infact, it comes in a super-slim tube and the pencil itself is even slimmer (that´s why it doesn´t need to be sharpened) and I like that a lot.
The ´Browlution´ pencil is not creamy or waxy, it´s not too dry or chalky either. It´s just right.
Another thing I like about the pencil is the fact that it has a spoolie on the other end. Spoolies are essential because we use it to brush out the brow hairs and blend out any harsh pencil lines, hereby making the brows look as natural as possible . The ´Browlution´ spoolie is smaller than the normal spoolie we usually have. I even prefer the size of this spoolie to the other spoolies, I think it does a better job.
Ok, I´m going to be using this pencil a lot, that´s for sure! I drew these brows with the ´Browlution´ pencil. They are not too light or too dark. They are just accurate. Just the way I like ´em, most times (winks).
