Product Review: Shiseido Integrate Eyebrow Pencil

Shiseido’s Integrate started out with Angelina Jolie as its spokesperson, with a fine line of quality point makeup you would expect from Shiseido. It stresses ‘ideal beauty’ with the famous ‘golden ratio’ at the time of the launch and it has remained popular ever since.

I haven’t had a chance to try Integrate until just a month ago, when I bought the eyebrow pencil in a light blonde shade to try my hand at doing the lighter eyebrows as taught in VoCE magazine. I also bought one in a similar shade from Kose’s Visee by the way. There isn’t much difference between the two – both are very long wearing, and the color and consistency are both very good. Both are almost the same price as well.

After using both for a month, I still can’t say which one I prefer. Both are very good. Except when compared to my Bourjois eyebrow pencil, which isn’t an auto pencil like Integrate or Visee’s, the Bourjois eyebrow pencil goes on much easier. With the auto browliners, you will need to use a Q-tip to remove sweat, sebum, or any other skin care or makeup products you put on your eyebrows or around them, otherwise it is hard to use the auto-brow pencils. I guess this is the only drawback to the auto-pencils!

Overall, the Shiseido Integrate eyebrow pencil is very good, and I am anxious to try more from this line.
