Anyway, I thought I'd break the rather long blog "drought" with a review of one of my new favourite eye brow product - MAC Eye Brows. I was introduced to the MAC Eye Brows by Jenny of The Shopping Queen. Jenny gave me the shade "Lingering" as part of the swap we did a few months ago (read here and here). It was the perfect shade for me, as I had blonde highlights through my hair. However, when I went darker, I just thought that Lingering was just a tat too light. So I decided to purchase the next shade up, Spiked, when I did my US haul.
You may be wondering why I like the MAC Eye Brows so much to buy two. Well, let's start with the packaging. I love how sleek and thin the eye brows crayons are. I also love that you do not need to sharpen it, all you have to do is twist the end (the longish bit where the crayon comes out from). However, the only con is that if you twist out too much, you can't retract it (well, at least I haven't figured out how to). Having said that, it's quite hard to twist out too much, as the twisty end is a bit stiff and sometimes makes it a bit hard to twist, especially if you have wet hands or you have just put some cream on.

Lastly, I love how natural they look. I think I can pull of both shades of eye brows crayons, depending on the look I'm going for.
