About The Founder
Steph’s friends describe her as a practical, no-fuss sort of girl. Like millions of women, Steph has always placed great emphasis on effortless style and believes that all beauty products should come with a fuss-free but polished guarantee.
Stephanie’s idea for Panda Pen was the result of (another) dreary Monday morning as a young expat in London. After a jam-packed tube ride in an overheated carriage, back to back meetings and a rushed lunch with a friend, a quick bathroom stop revealed the dreaded panda eye look was back.
Whether it is an attack of hay fever, an accidental sleepover followed by the walk of shame, or a lunch time workout- we've all experienced stray mascara and smudged eye makeup, resembling a sleep deprived, bamboo-eating bear. "Smudge proof" mascaras are, in our opinion, overrated. Lugging around a bottle of eye makeup remover and a cotton tip is simply not an option. A solution had to be found.
And so, the idea for Panda Pen was born.
With her background in fashion and beauty marketing and the encouragement of her mascara-stained friends and family, Steph set about solving the Panda eyes problem once and for all.
Four years later, Panda Pen has past the toughest scrutiny from a very opinionated and critical family panel of women from all walks of life. Further trial at three weddings, numerous airport farewells, the death of Michael Jackson followed by Alexander McQueen, the election of Obama, the 57th sitting of the Notebook and the humidity of a Vietnamese holiday, Panda Pen has certainly proved its worth and is now available for everyone...BYE, BYE PANDA EYES!
