Brow-n-eyed Peas: Catrice Eye Brow Stylist

There have been moments when I disliked my thicker dark eye brows, but given the recent revival of more natural brow styles I am happy I have never overindulged in plucking them into non-existence. Most of the time I just leave my brows be, but for a more polished look a little brow product can make all the difference.

Enter the Eye Brow Stylist pencil by budget beauty brand Catrice. This is a simple pencil with a tip on one end and a brow brush on the other to help shape your brows.

It is available in four different shades, all with silly and cute names. I went with the second shade: 030 Brow-n-eyed Peas. The pencil only costs €2.60 (roughly $3/£2, but retail prices may vary a little depending on your location).

The pencil has a light pay-off, making it easy to fill in your brows in a natural fashion. The color is perhaps a tad warm for me, but there are some darker colder brown shades available as well as a lighter blonde. I have worn this in warm summer weather and it stays put (no color running down your cheeks after a bit of perspiration).

Overall, a great budget option for girls who like the added sophistication of a brow pencil but don’t want to spend a fortune or like me don’t use it enough to justify a more expensive product.


Ik was vroeger niet altijd even blij met mijn donkere opvallende wenkbrauwen, maar met de recente trend van natuurlijke wenkbrauwen ben ik wel blij dat ik ze vroeger nooit teveel geëpileerd heb. Meestal laat ik mijn wenkbrauwen gewoon naturel, maar een beetje wenkbrauwproduct zorgt soms net voor de finishing touch op een verzorgde look.

Daarvoor gebruik ik nu de Eye Brow Stylist van budget makeup merk Catrice. Dit is een simpel potlood met aan de ene kant een punt en aan de andere kant een borsteltje om je wenkbrauwen in model te brengen.

Het potlood is verkrijgbaar in vier kleuren met allemaal grappige namen. Ik ging voor de tweede kleur: 030 Brown-n-eyed-Peas. Het potlood kost slechts €2.60, lekker goedkoop dus.

De Eye Brow Stylist laat een heel licht lijntje achter waardoor het makkelijk is om je wenkbrauwen op een natuurlijke manier bij te tekenen. De kleur is misschien net een tikkeltje te warm voor mij, maar er zijn een aantal koelere donkere bruintinten en een lichtere blonde kleur verkrijgbaar. Ik heb dit product getest in warm zomer weer en het blijft goed zitten (er loopt geen bruine kleur over je wangen na een beetje bewegen).

Alles bij elkaar een goede budget optie voor iedereen die de verzorgde uitstraling van een wenkbrauwproduct mooi vind maar niet teveel uit wil geven aan een duur product.

    Good to know it stays put. I haven’t had my brows running down my face before, but on hot days, sometimes it feels like they’re ready to melt off

      Hasn’t happened to me either (thankfully) but I recently saw it happen to a girl in the tropical heat.

    Yay I see my eyeshadow!! 😂 I just went & bought 6 of those Color Tattoo eyeshadows, I haven’t got the chance to swatch them yet but I did wear a couple one night at work & after 8 hours when I got home it looked like I had just out it on, I was impressed!

      Oh they are amazing! Very long lasting and such a great base 😀 The only thing that works even better for me is the Urban Decay Primer Potion!

        I’ve been wanting to try that, I love UD’s polish & I’ve had my eye on the Primer Potion but I just haven’t broke down & ordered it yet

          Don’t worry, it will happen sooner rather than later I am sure 😉 And it will be worth it 😀
