Shu Uemura Eyebrow Manicure

When I was introduced to Shu Uemura's Eyebrow Manicure, I knew it was something I needed.  True enough, I use it on a daily basis especially when I want a no-makeup look.  Since it's waterproof I don't need to worry about the appearance of my eyebrows mid-day.

Aside from holding hair in place, as what most eyebrow gels do, this product also fills the brows with color.  You'll end up with a look that's more natural as compared to using a pencil or brow powder.  It's great for people whose eyebrows are pretty much defined and just have some tiny sparse areas that need filling out - in my case, a tiny spot near the arc.

The applicator is similar to that of a mascara except its smaller.  However, I think it would be great if Shu Uemura reduced this by half a centimeter - it'll make it less likely to go over eyebrows.  Or maybe I'm just clumsy sometimes and go over :)

For brunettes, Palm Beige 04 (pictured below) is the way to go.  You know what they say, don't get a color that matches your hair exactly.  Instead, pick something lighter.

What I find a bit strange is that the company's website doesn't have this product listed but it's not discontinued.  So you'll need to check out a Shu Uemura counter in your area or purchase it from an online retailer.  Either way, it's a great addition to your kit.


  1. How does this compare to MAC Beguile? I love their hard formula brow liner. Have you tried that?

  2. it's almost the same as beguile except the color is less shiny than MAC's.

    yup, i tried the hard formula brow liner too. pretty good stuff but i definitely can't go without the eyebrow manicure :)


Thanks for giving my blog some love ♥
