Fans of ETUDE’s Drawing Eye Brow Duo, we have some bad news to share. The K-beauty brand has made the decision to discontinue their popular brow pencil.
The dual-ended brow product was one of our first-ever makeup products, being both an affordable and reliable staple in our makeup stashes even years later, which makes it even sadder that it’s discontinued.
To fill in that void, Daily Vanity has compiled a few alternatives to consider – you may just find your new holy grail brow product ahead.
1. ETUDE House Drawing Eye Brow
While the Drawing Brow Duo may be making an exit, the ETUDE House Drawing Eye Brow is here to stay. This eyebrow pencil has a spoolie instead of a sponge on the other end, which will help you blend the pigment into your eyebrows for a more natural look.
The ETUDE House Drawing Eye Brow retails for S$5.90 on ETUDE House.
2. SELF BEAUTY Triple Head All In One Auto-Pencil Eyebrow Pencil
Unlike most dual-ended eyebrow pencils, this SELF BEAUTY Triple Head All In One Auto-Pencil Eyebrow Pencil consists of three parts. It comes with a creamy eyebrow pencil on one end and a sponge tip on the other for shading and blending. However, it is also attached to a spoolie, which allows you to smoothly blend out product, so it’s quick and efficient.
The SELF BEAUTY Triple Head All In One Auto-Pencil Eyebrow Pencil retails for S$20 on Shopee.
3. Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Define + Fill Duo
Another alternative you could consider is the Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Define + Fill Duo eyebrow pencil. The formula of this pencil is quite waxy and traps all those annoying stray brows in place, giving you smooth and neat brows.
The eyebrow pencil tip is ultra-fine, making it easy to create the illusion of natural eyebrows. It is also really pigmented and the sponge on the other end does a great job of spreading out the pigment through your brows.
The Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Define + Fill Duo Eyebrow Pencil retails for S$11.04 on iHerb.
4. Innisfree Auto Eyebrow Pencil
The Auto Eyebrow Pencil from Innisfree has an oval-shaped tip that allows for easy application. As the tip is wide and flat, it’s great for drawing wide lines when held flat and delicate thin lines when held straight.
If you have particularly sensitive skin, then this is perfect for you. The pencil has a smooth texture that prevents any skin irritation. When you’ve finished drawing in your brows, blend the pigment out using the spoolie found on the other end of the pencil.
The Auto Eyebrow Pencil retails for S$5.02 at Shopee.
5. Max Factor Real Brow Fill and Shape Pencil
Like the beloved discontinued product, Max Factor’s Real Brow Fill and Shape Pencil combines an eyebrow pencil with a sponge applicator.
The pencil has a tapered tip for accuracy, helping you create the perfect feathered brow. The formula of the pencil is long-wear, smudge-proof, and transfer-proof, allowing it to stay in place all day.
The Max Factor’s Real Brow Fill and Shape Pencil retails for S$18 on Lookfantastic.
