I'm NYX Blogger of the Month | Brow Shaper & Slim Eye Pencil | Review & Swatches

Hi Beauty Lovers!

I'm back with my second and very sadly last post as NYX Blogger of the month, I'm so grateful to have had this opportunity and hopefully they'll have me back again another month. Todays post features two amazing products fit for any beauty lover.

Top - NYX Slim Eye Pencil 'Silver Glitter' £3.50* | Bottom - NYX Eyebrow Shaper £8.00*
 
This wax based eyebrow shaper has changed my life, or that of my brows. This wax pencil makes my brow powder so much more intense and also gives them a bit of volume which you don't get from a brow gel. The wax is clear so doesn't interfere with your surrounding makeup and the pointed pencil end makes application precise and effortless.
 
Through trial and error I've found the best way to apply this product is by sweeping it once or twice through the tail of your brows and leaving the front fluffy, this gives the most natural looking brows. If you want a more intense look then you can still apply your chosen eyebrow gel, but I find the wax and powder works perfectly for me.

I haven't needed to sharpen the pencil yet but I'm nervously awaiting the day I finally need to take the plunge. Please let me know your successes and disasters in sharpening wax pencils in the comments below.
 
I never thought wax was for me but I'm a converted lady...I love it!
If your a regular reader here on Porcelain Queen or follow my Instagram, you will have already seen this gorgeous Silver Glitter Slim Eye Pencil in action, I created my monochrome winged liner look based around this pencil.

The glitter is jam packed in this galactic pencil, however it didn't irritate my eyes, even wearing on my water line. It can be quite hard to work with unless you roll in your hands to warm the product up, then it applies more seamlessly.

I cant believe how wearable silver can be, it really complements my pale, cool complexion. Silver can be a daunting shade, however adding it in the right amounts and to the right places can really make your eyes pop.
 
How do you wear silver? Let me know in the comments below.
