E.L.F. Eyebrow Stencil

I'm no eyebrow-shaping expert. Heck, I even overplucked mine thinking back in college that it would give me softer features (Still paying for my mistakes...). Just this year, I realized how much thicker eyebrows, my natural eyebrow by the way, suits me better. Well, I couldn't turn back time wishing I had never overplucked. So, while waiting for someone to discover a miracle formulation to restore eyebrow hair growth, my best bet is to fill them in and shape them using eyebrow powders. My favorite as of the moment is the Wet n' Wild Ultimate Brow kit which I have reviewed here before. As of now, i have been accustomed to shaping them freehand. Before, I had no idea how to make both brows symmetrical to one another or as to where my arch should be so I wanted my hands on some eyebrow stencils to help me out. As I searched through the Internet, I was surprised to see that a mere plastic stencil could cost so much!!! Until I discovered that E.L.F makes one that is so much more affordable. I checked out the E.L.F. counters hoping to purchase one but it's not available locally, darn it! :D My last resort was ebay. I searched through for the stencil and luckily, I found one! (an answered prayer!haha!). I immediately clicked the "buy now" button. A day after payment confirmation, I finally got it in my hands.

E.L.F. Eyebrow Stencil
Price: P130 ($1 thru the official E.L.F. website)
Place bought:

According to the E.L.F. website: Achieve perfectly shaped brows to accentuate your face. The reusable stencil is easy to use and with 4 stencils: Curved Arch, Soft Arch, Structured Arch and Full Arch to choose from, it makes these brow stencils suitable for all brow shapes. Now your brows can look picture perfect everyday!

The stencils are not made of the usual acetate-type of plastic as I imagined it would be. It is actually made of a plasticky and rubbery material that would ensure you it won't tear when bended. The Kit includes enough eyebrow styles for me to choose from, I mean, do you really expect to buy a stencil that would exactly match your eyebrow shape? You don't. Stencils are just guides that could help you fill or shape your own eyebrows. You can either use the stencil's tail end, the front, or the arch, but not literally the whole stencil shape because it would come out unnatural and too structured. But it also depends if you chanced upon a stencil that fits perfectly onto your natural eyebrow hair growth, then that's fine. Stencil's are also great for those people who's shaping and plucking their eyebrows for the first time (the lucky ones :D). It could guide them on which hairs to pluck just simply put their desired stencil over their eyebrows and fill the shape in with white eyeliner pencil. Afterwards, anything that was not covered by the eyeliner can be removed. As for me, I may not have the need for this one at the moment but I would certainly lend this to my nieces when it's time for them to shape theirs. :D
