Local brands are really close to my heart. Not only are they affordable and easy to find, they surprisingly have great quality. I know I tend to underestimate them, but local products are definitely at par with their imported counterparts. When it comes to cosmetics, I love drugstore/department store brands! Since they’re so affordable, you won’t regret testing out a new product in the market even if doesn’t turn out well. I believe cosmetics and skin care are kind of a hit or miss thing. You just keep on trying out new products until you find the one that’s perfect for you.

Speaking of trying out cosmetics, I was able to get a hold of the latest products from Fashion21. If you haven’t heard of Fashion21 yet (which I highly doubt), it is a local brand offering budget-friendly and quality cosmetics. You could literally find them in every department store! Anyway, I was able to try out Fashion21's Auto Eyebrow Pen lately. I am not a pro when it comes to doing eyebrow makeup and I am far from #kilaygoals, but this product was really easy to use for a makeup rookie like me.
As regards the packaging, I was definitely impressed! Honestly, Fashion21’s products used to have tacky packaging and I am glad that they were able to improve their products’ packaging. The pen is a black matte one with the name of the product printed on it. It is very lightweight and the product can be dispensed with by retracting the pen. I actually tried opening the pen to its max and it contains more or less two inches of eyeliner.
