MAC PENULTIMATE BROW MARKER

"A liquid, pen-style marker for colouring and styling the brows to a well-defined, natural-looking finish. Easy to control. Tapered tip provides precision and helps create the feathery strokes needed to fill in and perfect the brows. Flow-through, quick-drying formula means no smudges. Long-wearing."  - maccosmetics.com
I was really intrigued when I first saw this product.  Before discovering the brow marker, I only used pencil (some with a waxy consistencicy) or powder.  The main concern with this product was the "universal" color.  How could one color work for everyone?  I was also concerned about the actual marker!  Will it look like the infamous "sharpie" brows?

To my surprise, the "universal" color worked fine.  At first it looked a bit light and on the redish side, but it looked fine after it dryed down.  With the precision tip, I was able to make feathery natural strokes (no sharpie brows here!).  I really love using this brow marker!  I think it looks really natual and it's easy to use.  I can define my brows without the edges looking too harsh (sometimes it looks really harsh when using a pencil).

I will try to film a short demo on how I like to use this product soon.  I know I saw at least one other brand that made brow markers.  Let me know if you have tried one (from MAC or any other brand) and your thoughts!

Thanks for reading!

Update 10/31/11

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the lack of content on my blog and YouTube channel.  Gosh, when I decided to start making videos for YouTube, I never really knew how much work these ladies put into making videos.  Recording alone takes a while (if you wanna get things right) and editing can take even longer!  For anyone that uploads content regularly, I have to give you credit for all your time and effort.

What to expect in the future...
Since it's already Halloween...HAPPY HALLOWEEN!...I missed the Halloween tutorial boat (maybe next year?).  So I still have 3 or 4 birchboxes that I haven't shared.  I'm not sure if I want to post those since the months have passed and everyone probably doesn't care anymore.  I have accumulated 3 New Beauty Testtubes...which I need to post because I've been trying to not use them until I filmed my videos.  And has anyone heard of insflunster.com?  I got my August Voxbox I need to share.  Influnster.com is a marketing program for companies to get market research (product reviews).  They will send full sized products for you to try (for FREE!) in exchange for a mandatory product review survey.  These videos are in the works and I will try to get them out ASAP.
