Moving right along with the second installment in my Battle of the Brows series, we have the Lashfood Browfood Eco Precision 2-Tone Brow Pencil. When I first spotted this pencil, I thought it was a fantastic value for money but I hadn’t read/seen any reviews on it. I’ve tried other products from Lashfood, you may remember that I reviewed the Brow Enhancing Gelfix a few months ago. Given my positive experience with the Gelfix, I decided it was worth trying the brow pencil.
Lashfood says: Inspired by duo brow powders, this two-toned pencil creates perfectly even-colored brows by using the two shades for natural highlights and lowlights. Fill in the perfect amount of natural-looking color while also allowing for expert control. The innovative tip delivers precise application and never needs sharpening while soft bristles at the other end blend color, groom, and shape brows to desired style. The color formula features a rosemary complex to help nourish and restore brow follicles.
First of all, I think its really cool that this product is makeup plus treatment. If you’re not familiar with Lashfood, their philosophy is a natural yet effective alternative to longer, thicker, fuller looking lashes and brows. The mother-daughter brand of products are “formulated with powerful herb extracts and other pure ingredients – the Phyto-Medic complex immerses lashes and brows in the rejuvenating powers of herbs to dramatically restore and improve the appearance of lashes and brows without irritating the skin”.
Another great feature of the Lashfood brow pencil is that it comes with an initial color cartridge plus one refill. So you’re basically getting double the product. This makes it environmentally friendly as additional refills can be purchased separately.
Like the Anastasia Brow Definer which I reviewed last week, the Lashfood brow pencil is housed in plastic with the actual product on one end and a spooly on the other. At first, I will admit that I thought the packaging felt kind of cheap. But then I read that the materials used are eco-friendly which likely accounts for the light-weight feel. In case this interests you, the spooley side of the pencil is shorter than the side with the brow product.
The Lashfood Browfood Eco Precision 2-Tone Brow Pencil is offered in three shades. For my black hair, I chose the shade Dark Brunette which is the darkest. The pencil is actually two colors in one which is quite interesting and unique. Lashfood claims that the use of two complimentary shades mimics natural highlights and lowlights. The difference between the two shades is subtle but, hopefully, I was able to capture it. You’ll notice that the tip of this pencil is not exactly triangular in shape but more like a thin rectangle.
I think the spooley is also unique…not because its shaped differently that what you normally see on the end of a brow pencil but because it is very soft. This may not be to everyone’s taste. Usually a stiffer spooley helps to comb out the brows better, especially if you have thicker brows. But with my thinner ones, it wasn’t an issue.
Dark Brunette definitely comes across as warm brown rather than a blackened brown which is usually what I go for in a brow product.
I repeat this in all of my eyebrow-related posts because I wouldn’t want to assume a reader has read my previous posts – but my eyebrows (as a result of genetics, not over-plucking) are quite thin and sparse. That being the case, it is always challenging for me to achieve a “natural” not draw in look no matter what type of product I use.
As mentioned, this pencil does not feature a triangular tip. The lack of a very thin, fine edge means that you probably won’t be able to achieve those really precise hair like strokes. However, it’s still thin enough that you have good control. Compared to the pencil I reviewed previously, the Eco-Precision Brow Pencil is less pigmented and more waxy than the Anatasia Brow Definer…which, for me, is actually a good thing. The moderate (but still plenty enough) pigmentation means that it is much easier to achieve a natural, fool-proof look. And the built-in wax means that the product clings really well to skin and hairs.
I love how this pencil creates such a natural look. What it lacks in precision, it makes up for in ease and an impressive wear time (8+ hours). The only negative for me was the color match – I found it to be a touch too light and, perhaps, also a little too warm.
The Lashfood Browfood Eco Precision 2-Tone Brow Pencil contains 0.014 oz and retails for $24.00 USD. However, it comes with a refill which has a value of $12.00 USD. I purchased at Sephora.
