bbrowbar Brow Definer in Cinnamon Spice

My November Birchbox was a bit of a snooze fest for me when I initially opened it, but I've found a sleeper item that I'm really enjoying:  bbrowbar's Brow Definer in Cinnamon Spice ($25 for full size).
When I first saw the name I thought "uh oh, too warm and dark for me", but I was wrong.  It works quite nicely on my fair skin and is the lighter of the two shades listed on Birchbox's site, with the other being Indian Chocolate.
Quick and easy to use, the super slim and extra precise nib is retractable, providing a matte finish. The slim tip covers even the tiniest of gaps in every brow. Waterproof and smudge proof with natural anti-ageing antioxidants, Vitamin E and C. (Source)

My brows are just okay.  On the plus side I don't have to do much tweezing at all.  On the negative, they are not particularly defined and have some sparse areas that definitely benefit from a brow product.  For the past month or so I've been gravitating towards pencils over my usual go to Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro in Medium Brown (full review here), mainly because they are a bit quicker/easier to apply.
I like the control and preciseness that the small tip gives and find that it lays down smooth color with small strokes (unlike what you see in the swatch picture where I was drawing a long line).  I've got oily skin and this stays where you put it, but to be honest most brow products do that for me.
So, the moral of this story is boring ≠ bad, and I am happy to have received this!

Fragrance of the day:  Rem Reminiscence, a floral aquatic with notes of sea water, rose, lilac, jasmine, fenugreek, patchouli, musk, tonka bean, and vanilla.  I wanted an aquatic to mark all the rain and thunderstorms we were getting.  Sadly, it faded much quicker than the storms did.
