REVIEW | SilkyGirl Hi-Definition Brow Liner

I can never have too many eyebrow products! Eyebrow routine is my most favorite thing to do when doing my makeup. So here's another review and I will be talking about the SilkyGirl Hi-Definition Brow Liner.

This self-sharpening retractable brow liner comes with an angled tip to shape and fill your brows with precision. The super-smooth formula promises a natural finish that lasts more than 6 hours. Blending is made easy with the attached brow brush. (source)

I got curious. How would an HD eyebrow product look after application? I really don't know. But if an eyebrow product can last the whole day without making me worry that it would get removed, that's an nice product! Want to see my reaction after wearing this product for more than 6 hours? Watch the video below.



The product came sealed and I love the fact that details are printed on the product itself and NOT on the plastic seal. You can find almost all the details you need and I think the most important ones are ingredients and manufacturing date. As mentioned above, this one is a retractable brow liner. I don't like sharpening because I find it messy but I am also not as careful as you would think I am so I always have the tendency to break retractable pencils. Don't let too much product out, that's the trick!



Who needs a separate spoolie when your brow liner already has it? I always appreciate attached spoolies because it makes my eyebrow routine shorter. This one though is quite softer than my usual spoolies. It can be a pro or con depending on your preference. I like a stiff spoolie but not scratchy.



I have with me the two shades available: 01 Soft Black and 02 Dark Brown. Both looks natural for me but I am more inclined to using the latter since my hair has some bleached parts. Sometimes, I combine both colors. The slanted tip is okay on first few times of using it but it is quite hard to maintain. It becomes rounded.

The liners are pigmented enough for the brows. They are not as intense as the other pencils or liners I have tried BUT this is perfect especially for beginners. I like this pencil because it is not too waxy.

I tried making my brows look thicker but still looking natural. I think I was able to achieve it with the help of these brow liners. I LOVE THE EFFECT!



After 12 hours, here's how my eyesbrows look like. The only thing I noticed is the fading on areas without hair or with lesser hair strands. Other than that, I can still see the product on my eyebrows.

What I like: 

  • Nice packaging with complete details printed on it

  • Comes with a spoolie/brush

  • Retractable

  • You can control application since it is not overly pigmented (if you want intense pigmentation, this one is not for you)

  • Easy to apply; not to waxy

  • The liner is a bit thin and is okay for precise application

  • Lasted for 12 hours with minimal fading

  • Doesn't transfer

  • Available locally


What I don’t like:

  • Quite expensive but performance of the product justifies the price

  • The spoolie or brush is just a little softer than what I prefer

  • Breaks easily so expose small amount of product only

  • Comes in two shades only

  • Not waterproof

  • Although it is available locally, some malls still don't have SilkyGirl stalls or counters


I fell in love with this product instantly. Although I am into eyebrow products, I don't usually grab pencils or liner in pencil form because I tend to suck in application. But with this one, I think I did well and I always get nice comments when I have this on. The longevity sealed the deal! I am going to repurchase.
