Review: Laneige Natural Brow Liner

I’m a stickler for good manners – I may curse like a trucker with my friends, but when in social situations, I believe that my parents have brought me up well. You say hello, I say hello back. It doesn’t matter if you’re a superficial ex-boss who used to stalk my Facebook account and deleted me the moment I resigned – I have good manners. -pats self on back-

So when Jolie told me that she liked my brows that I did during the Laneige Brighten Up Workshop, I didn’t reply immediately. Instead, I zipped to Korea and bought the exact same product so that I could review it 😀

I say…

Well, I have to have liked this product to a certain extent to have spent money on it.

  • The feel of the liner is really good – kinda like a lightweight metallic casing that has some weight to it, making drawing a tad bit easier. The grip is just better when you’ve got some weightage to the liner.
  • The brush end is not too prickly as well, so I can brush through my brows without getting paranoid about premature brow-baldness.
  • The flat tip also makes it easier to draw thick and short Korean brows.
  • What’s more, it comes with an extra refill – I really love Koreans nd their way of giving extra refills for almost everything – Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion, IOPE BB Cushion, Hera UV Mist Cushion, O Hui Cream Foundation, Missha Speedy Makeup stick remover etc
  • The liner goes on smoothly, and the colour is a nice natural gray (kinda like my Korean ebony pencil)  – you don’t really need to “warm up” the pencil before using it directly on your face.
  • I also like that if I want fiercer brows, I just need to apply a few more strokes to get a darker grey / almost black tone.
  • It also doesn’t fade that quickly (perhaps a good 6 hours), and that’s saying something, since I have bangs which brush against my brows more often.

I can’t remember how much this cost but I think it’s worth a try if you wanna get Korean brows. Right now, I’m gonna get me some Korean snooze – I think I might have accidentally pinched a muscle in my back in my sleep. damnit.

  1. Thank you for mentioning me 🙂 I’m using shu Uemura eye Brow pencil. Maybe I’ll get the laneige to try the texture soon 🙂
