ABH Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen

Anastasia Beverly Hills Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen is used to create fine natural looking brow hairs. It is available in 9 different shades and retails for USD 22. The standard size contains 0.5 ml of product. While the early 2010’s has been all about bold, carved out, Instagram brows, 2021 is all about fluffy, natural eyebrows. Along with the trend, multiple products has been introduced to the market. Anastasia Beverly hills is one of the brand that is most widely known for its brow products.

The brow pen that I got is in the shade Medium brown. ABH brow pen as mentioned in the site, has super fine bristles. The brush tip is not rigid and stiff like some of the felt tip eyeliner pen. This has flexible super fine bristles that form into a lip so that, it is easy to for precise application. It took me a while to get used to the brush as this was the first brow pen I ever used.

This product is quite pigmented and has a really nice color payoff. Now, when I say pigmented, its not super saturated like eyeliner pen or anything. But, for a brow pen this has a nice color payoff. However, the bristles might deposit a lot of color depending on how you store it. So, for smoother application you might want to wipe off on the back of your hand or a dry tissue. Once you do this the pigment comes out quite evenly.


ABH brow pen is great for filling out the sparse areas to create brows that looks natural. I have wide brow gap so I like to use the product on the front of my brows to give my eyebrows a little more length. It does applies very nicely and the strokes are quite good. I don’t quite like to use this on the areas where I already has brow hair as it looked a little patchy and thick in those area. This product holds up really nicely throughout the day. It did not bleed or smudges all day. However, if you have a habit of touching you face or brows then there’s a chance you might wipe it off. But unless you touch it you’re good to go.

This has become one of my favorite brow products. I use this mostly on days when I want natural fluffy brows. Nevertheless, you can absolutely use this for more well shaped and contoured brows look for more detailing. Will definitely be repurchasing this in the future Or, may be find an affordable dupe 😉

Essence I Love Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base

Essence Eyeshadow Base

Essence I love colour intensifying Eyeshadow base is an eyeshadow primer that comes in a plastic tube with a doe foot applicator. It is available in a single shade which has light-peachy color. You can find this in most of the makeup store in Kathmandu or you can get it online from Forevryng.

This eyeshadow base has a smooth consistency and contains no fragrance. It consists the texture of a liquid concealer but not too runny. The application is smooth and once applied all over the eyelid it gives a tacky feeling which i love as it will help the eyeshadow to stick to the base. If you don’t like the finish then you can set it with a setting powder or use an eyeshadow colour that matches your skin tone. It helped me cover the light discoloration on my eyelids and gave me smooth base.

It does not make the eye shadow patchy or difficult to blend. My eyelids normally gets super oily and my eyeshadow always creases after few hours of makeup but this eyeshadow made it last all day long without any creases or smudges. It is a multitasking product as you can use this to carve out your eyebrows or use it for cut crease eye makeup. I absolutely love this eyeshadow primer and would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants all day of perfect eyeshadow.
