Lime Crime is looking to help transform and shape brows with its Brow Pomade Sticks. The 2-in-1 pencil is both a pencil and brush stick that helps users create the full thickness and texture they desire.

Available in nine different shades, the pomade stick is meant to neutrally match various shades, allowing users to create fluffy and feathery brows with the brush, then fill in any sparse areas with the pencil.

Retailing for $18, Lime Crime’s Brow Pomade Sticks are available online at LimeCrime.com.

Shifting gears over to nails, Pear Nova is launching its first nail polish remover. The brand’s new Refresh Soy Remover features a non-acetone formula that moisturizes and conditions the nails with each and every use, according to the company.

Formulated without any harsh ingredients that dry out the nails and skin, the product looks to not irritate sensitive skin while also strengthening nails with repeated use.

Packaged in recyclable glass, the remover contains tea tree oil, which aids in soothing painful and irritated cuticles, and also contains antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help prevent nail fungus.  

Retailing for $17.50, Pear Nova’s Refresh Soy Remover is available for purchase online at pearnova.com.
