From the appearance point of view, the difference between ordinary colored pencils and eyebrow pencils is not big, but in fact the difference is not small. In terms of ingredients, colored pencils are mainly composed of graphite and clay, while eyebrow pencils are made from pigments and oil waxes. Although their ingredients have similar effects, the effects are different.
The hardness of the eyebrow pencil is determined by the content of oil and wax. According to different makeup needs, we can choose different hardness of the eyebrow pencil. The soft eyebrow pencil is easier to color, while the hard eyebrow pencil is good for preventing smudging. The hardness of colored pencils is determined by clay, and the hardness of general colored pencils is basically fixed, so it cannot meet the needs of different eyebrow makeup.
In addition, compared to eyebrow pencils, colored pencils have higher hardness, and the graphite in the pencil lacks the process of fusion of pigments and skin oils, so the coloring ability is also worse.
Colored pencils VS eyeliner
The eye skin is very delicate, so the ingredients of the eyeliner are also more exquisite. Generally speaking, the main ingredients of eyeliner are natural wax ester complex and vitamin E. This makes the eyeliner less hard and softer than colored pencils, and it feels more comfortable for the eye skin.
Unlike eyebrow pencils, the biggest difference between eyeliner and colored pencils is not the degree of coloration and blooming. Eyeliner will add corresponding skin care ingredients according to different skin needs, such as adding chamomile ingredients to alleviate the symptoms of skin redness, which is not possible with colored pencils.
Colored pencils VS lip gloss
The ingredients of lipstick generally include mineral wax, pigments, fragrances, and some skin care ingredients that may be beneficial to the skin, such as vitamin C and vitamin E.
First of all, waxy lipsticks are much softer than colored pencils in hardness, have a better skin-friendly effect, and are stronger than colored pencils in relative coloring ability.
In addition, since the lip makeup is applied to the lips, it is inevitable that some will be eaten between the opening and closing of the lips and tongue. Lipstick and colored pencils use completely different colorants. Colored pencils rely on graphite pigments for coloring, while lipsticks mostly use food colorings. In comparison, lipsticks are definitely safer. Although Uke previously sent 10 international big-name lipsticks to Germany for testing, it was found that their safety is also a cold sweat.
