This is a good product for natural-looking eyebrows, it goes on semi-sheer and will blend fairly easily. My favourite thing about these pencils is the colour - I have them in grey and grey brown, and there's not even a hint of red when applied onto the skin. My hair does actually have a red undertone to it but reddish brows always look too obviously like you've drawn them on, neutral tones are generally more flattering. The pencil is a twist-up type, is slanted at the tip, and abour 3-4mm lengthways. Looking head on at the tip, it's in the shape of an isosceles triangle. It is a little waxy in consistency, so if you find it's not drawing on readily then scribble a little on the back of your hand to warm it up and it should go on a lot more smoothly. The other end is a spoolie brush, which will soften and blend harsh lines with ease. It lasts well enough, but it isn't the most long-wearing brow pencil out there. I often need to take this with me and touch up once or twice in the day, if I'm particularly oily or sweaty that day. It is very affordable, even when factoring in shipping from abroad - I bought one for around £5-6 with shipping and so it's still cheaper than some other drugstore brow pencils.The main downside is the loosely fitting lids on these. Mine have now been lost to the sands of time, so I have to be super careful about retracting the pencil back into the cartridge or else it will snap off. But as mentioned they are super cheap so it's not too painful if one snaps and needs replacing.

Practically bulletproof once dry. Super cheap and incredibly long lasting, I love these! You need to take them off with waterproof makeup remover to take it off, it's a tenacious little tint!

I had this for awhile but was too chicken to use it because firstly it was super scented floral when I took a whiff and secondly it seemed like it would be heavy greasy and cause breakouts. Well I took one for the team and have been testing it for the past week. I think I found my HG SS that moisturizes and isn't drying. It doesn't seem that fragranced wearing it on my face which is great compared to how it seemed so overwhelmingly perfumey when I first checked it out. It's more like a light fruit smell like melon. I only use a serum underneath and then the EH SS. It goes on more like a moisturizer and isn't drying at all. There is a slight white cast but it goes away and I wear my EH cushion on top. I haven't had any breakouts wearing this and my skin seems better and calmed at the end of the day. It leaves a satin finish and my face doesn't look all cakey and parched at the end of the day. Edit: realized I have the older version of this from 2017.

Unfortunately for me this product didn't really do anything, but it doesn't give me a reaction or anything either. I haven't noticed a difference in the thickness and length of my lashes or the look of them. I'm just trying to use it up at the moment hoping that there will be the slightest effect. I apply it overnight and wake up with small crusties from the product drying up but it doesn't irritate my skin or eye area so I guess it's fine, but just a heads up in case you are sensitive to things like that. Overall wouldn't repurchase or recommend.

I have this in OR201, a coral-pink-orange shade. The color is really pretty. It was about $6-7 on amazon. I wanted this exact color to layer under sheer lipsticks, specifically Urban Decay Sheer Snitch, which is a beautiful milky pale coral that unfortunately disappears within a half hour on me.This experiment did not work lol. The combo of the colors is amazing, but the Dear Darling tint looks great for the first 15 minutes, then disappears from some parts of my lips, and intensifies on others?? So yeah, uber patchy. And it's impossible to get off unless you really go in with oil or makeup remover. So if you don't have that stashed, say at work, you'll end up with a bright orange inner bottom lip situation that looks GREAT at meetings. And you just might feel like a preteen that got hold of a 1996 YM back issue and tried to copy the cover look. You might even decide to just embrace the gradient lip trend since you have been left with no choice. For the rest of your days.I mean, good lasting power though.The tube is cute, and I will say that there is no disgusting scent or taste (the Sephora brand lip stains are so good but I can't use them because they taste like actual poison). This is a weird product in that I can see it working for others, but my lips rejected it :(
