Hi Hello everybody!! It’s been a long time since I posted something here. I am so glad that finally I have some time to spare to update my blog and to share some of my beauty product related experience.
Recently Shu Uemura is re-promoting their Brow Styling Service. I was invited to try the service and to share what was the experience like. In this post, I am going to share some of Shu Uemura’s brow products and how I feel about Shu Uemura’s 3D Brow Styling service. So let’s start!!
Shu Uemura has quite a range of brow styling products and you will find these products applied while having your 3D Brow Session. The most popular product would be the brow pencil but hey, there are so much more to explore!
Shu Uemura believes that 3D eyebrow look can be achieved in 3 steps; it is by SHADE, DRAW and to COLOR your brow.
The first step is to recreate the shadow on your brow. This can be done using Shu Uemura Brow:ink. My eyebrow is naturally quite thin and light in shade. Brow:Ink is a real life safer when it comes to creating thicker looking brow and helping the color to stay longer! I use this almost daily as my brow base shade and with this, my eyebrow shade will last the whole day (read: 12 hours). Brow:Ink is retailing at $42 and is available in 4 shades.
I draw my eyebrow every single day whenever I am out of my house. A well defined brow gives me confidence although I don’t apply much make up on my face. Shu Uemura is famous with the hard formula brow pencil and I have been using it since many years ago. Although I use it interchangeably with few other brow pencils, it still remains as one of those brow pencils that I would repurchase.
Recently Shu Uemura releases a new version of the brow pencil, it’s called Brow:Sword. The hard formula will still be available though. Brow:Sword has a smooth texture and the the pigmentation of the product is better than the hard formula. The pre-set sharpener is also very helpful for us to resharpen the pencil without having to go down to Shu Uemura counter and having it sharpened there. I love Shu Uemura’s hard formula brow pencil but for the sake of convenience, Brow:Sword has been a very helpful item on my stash because of the pre-set sharpener. Another thing I’d like to mention here is that Brow:Sword is refillable! The refill is affordably priced at $28 and is available in 5 colors.
Below is the picture of Brow:Sword.
The last step of the 3D Brow Styling is to color. To achieve the natural brow look, Eyebrow Manicure is there to color our brow hair to mimic the color of our hair color.
3D Brow Styling Service
Shu Uemura believes that different brow style brings different power to express different human impression, and thus they are promoting 4 eyebrow styles. Most of the time, I would ask for natural style brow, but given these few styles to choose from, I went for Glamorous instead.
I did my 3D Brow Styling recently in Isetan Scotts. I chose “Glamorous Style”. Glamorous Style gives a more defined eyebrow shape and when I draw a darker shade on my brow, it gives a more masculine look.
The brow service started with tweezing according to the brow style we requested. After the brow has been nicely shaped, the SA will nicely share with me on each products they use. Firstly is to shade using Brow:Ink. To create a thicker looking brow, Brow:Ink is certainly helpful to be used as the base color. It will help the brow color to last longer. Secondly, the SA would help me to draw my eyebrow to enhance the glamorous style I have chosen. Lastly is to shade my brow with eyebrow manicure, it gives a lovely finishing touch to my brow and making it look more natural.
Overall I am very happy with the service delivered by Shu Uemura brow styling specialist. They’re profesional specialist and they understand what I want for my brow. They are also very detail oriented in their work. One of the main plus point is that Shu Uemura has lots of counters islandwide and I can choose the outlet based on my convenience. The price point is also very affordable for a brow styling service.
Another thing I’d like to add here is that I don’t have to be exposed with “hard selling service” which I experienced in some other places before. I like the efficient service provided by Shu Uemura – I went down and get my brows done, that’s all. I don’t have to spend more time with the SA trying to sell me packages or future services. In this way, I feel more at ease and respected as a customer.
Shu Uemura 3D Brow Styling is available at Shu Uemura Counter Islandwide and it’s priced at $12 (for Shu Uemura members) and $15 for non member
