rubric_Range.png
 

= Does it offer a good range of colors? There are two shades, I definitely think there should be two more. 

= For all skin tones? They should at least have two more colors to cater to those who have lighter or deep skin tones. However since they are only selling the Philippines the colors are good selections

Is it something new compared to pre-existing brands? No, this is just their own take on a skinny brow pencil and brow gel. The brow gel is a budget friendly version of the Charlotte Tilburry Legendary Brows.

Is it different in formula? There doesn’t seem to be anything different, atleast they don’t state it. 

= Is it different in packaging design? The packaging for the life brow gel has a similar mold to the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows and the Brow Pencil isn’t different in comparison to other eyebrow pencils. 

Unique Branding? Similar branding tone as Glossier, but what millennial brand really isn't trying to emulate Glossier? They’re successful for a reason.

 

rubric_Design.png
 

✔ Packaging Design: Simple and Sleek

✔ Color: Very balanced choice of colors

✔ Typography: Readable

= Finishing: The quality of the packaging seems a bit cheap because of the shine.

 

rubric_sustainable.png
 

Is the packaging sustainable? The packaging consists of a box and then inside is the product itself made of hard plastic. If you have it delivered via Lazada or Zalora. The packaging is incredibly wasteful they come in nude bubble wrap and they only include 1 or 2, when it can fit more. 

= Where is it made and do they have a large carbon foot-print for manufacturing the product?   It is manufactured in PRC which in People's Republic of China, which is China. I don’t think manufacturing in China is a bad thing, but they have done a good job at rewording it and making it seem like its not made from China. The carbon footprint wouldn’t be so large considering China isn’t very far from the Philippines. However their shipping packaging is not sustainable at all and is a bit excessive which contributes a lot of waste.
