Review | Aery Jo Auto Eyebrow with Brush

By Sarah - Saturday, March 05, 2016

In the past 2 months or so, I've been way more into using brow pencils as compared to my per-ush dip brow pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills as it is less time consuming. I gotta admit, my brows are not in the best shape - I have not gotten them professional shaped in... a good 6-8 months or so. I know, I judge myself too.

I do find brow pencils easier to control if you're a) a beginner or b) in a mad rush. Hence, the hunt for the perfect eyebrow pencil is on!

Recently, I was introduced to the Korean brand, Aery Jo. Turns out, Aery Jo is a pretty popular professional makeup academy in Korea. I was definitely intrigued - usually products formulated by makeup academies aren't half bad and I have high hopes.

Firstly, the packaging is very sleek and fancy. Its shiny black casing is adorned with gold font of the product. It does feel heavier and sturdier than most of my eyebrow pencils (I am currently weighing them in my hand as I write this). Being duo-ended, one side opens up to the twistable brow pencil and the other, wait for it... comes with an angled brush. I have not encountered a brow product that comes with a brush instead of a spoolie, so I was really excited to try this out.

As this is a twist-up kind of pencil (like the Brow Wiz from ABH and many alike it) - there is no need to sharpen. However, the diameter of this pencil is larger than most, so it could get blunt if you use the pencil at a 90 degree angle to the skin. Instead, I suggest you hold the pencil at the angle, and use the sides of the tip to draw your strokes.

Formulation wise, this pencil glides onto the skin really easily and the pigmentation is great. I do not find myself constantly redrawing the strokes to get the intensity that I want. I usually lightly stencil out the bottom of my brow and use the brush to blend the product upwards, into the brow hairs. I would then focus on the arc and blend it down into the tail. If this confuses the heck out of you, refer to the pictures below ;) .

This product does blend really nicely on the skin and I like the fact that once it sets, its lasting power is amazing. The weather has been utter madness these days and I find myself sweating buckets the moment I walk out the door (ain't the best thing to share, but keeping it real). With the heat and humidity, brows are usually the first to fade off due to the sweat and oil produced. This pencil lasted me the entire day - my arc and tail were perfect after 8 hours. I was and still am, very impressed.

After using this everyday for a week and a half or so, I do find myself enjoying the brush to blend the product more than a spoolie. Of course, this depends on the formulation of the brow product as well. This Aery Jo Auto Eyebrow has the right amount of blendability that enables the brush to work great. Another point, blending out the product with an angled brush does provide much sharper lines and precision as compared to a spoolie. However, do not exert too much pressure as the brush does not do well in blending out excess product.

I got mine in the shade No. 2 Brown. It is a dark brown (that leans slightly to the cooler tones) which will work great with dark brown and black hair. I have reddish hair but I think I can get away with it as well (or I hope so haha).
They also have the shade No. 1 Grey.

It retails for $12.90 which you can get off here. It comes with 0.32g of product and a refill as well.

P.S. You can use the code <BEAUTYBYRAH> for 10% off your purchase (valid for purchases above $20). Promo code lasts till 5th June!

Overall, I am enjoying this eyebrow pencil as it lasts for a really good period of time and it is easy to use.

Hope this review and the pictures were useful! Thanks for dropping by, xo.
