There’s nothing quite like unwrapping a new range of makeup goodies! I recently got to test drive three new products from Empro, a range that is distributed by Placelol and available at Dream-nails salons nationwide.
It’s made by Prof. Coco Alex and has received a number of awards, including the Women’s Weekly Best Beauty Award in 2009 and 2010.
Triangular Eyebrow Pencil
My fave product of the lot and one that’s currently sitting in my personal makeup kit, is Empro Triangular Brow Pencil. I would have to say that it is probably one of the best eyebrow pencils I’ve used.
On the one side it has a brush that helps you get your brows in place before you start shaping them. You can also use the brush to finish off your brows and even out the colour when you’re done.
Normally eyebrow pencils are plain old pencils, and the tip isn’t always a great way to shape your brows, especially if you’re fairly new to shaping your brows. This one is triangular which makes it easy to apply thicker and thinner lines where needed.
Another great thing about this pencil is that there is no sharpening (yay) and the crayon stays in shape. The colour comes out just right to fill your brows without making them look drawn in. I love it!
Black Diamond Liner
I love, love, love liquid lines for eyes and most of the time I prefer to use gel liners as I find them easier to use and more importantly, long lasting.
I generally steer away from applicator ones, but the Empro Black Diamond Liner is a great one and I’ve found myself using it more than my gel pots these days.
It’s smudge proof, waterproof and really does glide on smoothly for a precise and controlled application. The other plus is that it doesn’t dry out as quickly as the gel liners and fits nicely into my makeup bag for on the go eye-lining!
Innovative Mascara 3rd Generation
There’s one thing you can never have too much of, and that’s mascara! Us girls need mascara’s for lengthening, mascara’s for curling, mascara’s for volume…. the list goes on and on! So it’s nice that Empro have thought of everything and packed it all into one wand with double sided applicators!
On the one side Lengthen and Extra Curl is great for day use and gives your lashes a nice black coating that does’nt look overdone. On the other end Volume + Extra Curl is great for night, giving you full proof flutter lashes.
Empro’s Innovative Mascara 3rd Generation is also vitamin enriched to help boost elasticity and strengthen your lashes.Prices:
