The number one eyebrow pencil, hard formula has been beloved for over 25 years. The unique "naginata" samurai sword shape is part of Shu Uemura's heritage, and it enables precision for natural, defined brows, for both fine lines and wider areas. The angled tip boasts versatility, craftsmanship, and a timeless functionality that navigates ever-changing brow trends through time. The edge is used to draw precise lines as thin as hair, the side surfaces are for shading naturally or boldly, and the point is for filling in the fine gaps in the brows for a beautiful finish. Another thing that sets hard formula apart from the crowd is the perfect hardness of the formula. If the lead is too soft, drawing fine, precise lines becomes difficult. Yet if the lead is too hard, it will not go onto skin smoothly. This unique formula consists of a mix of powder, wax, and small amounts of semi-solid oil, a winning combination that delivers the perfect hardness for ultimate precision with a powdery texture that works well with foundation upon application. Each pencil is carefully manufactured and is the epitome of Japanese craftsmanship.
