    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

    I had high hopes for this product, but was let down. This pencil basically glues the eyebrows to the head and doesnt look smooth or natural. Its darker is some spots and even if you try, it wont get all even.

      I use this eyebrow pencil everyday. The built in brush feature helps blend strokes. It also is cleverly attached. No more searching for my brow brush!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

      I was unhappy with the way this product crumbles when you apply it. Even using the brush end to even it out, I still had messy crumbles to deal with. I had to make sure the didn't fall on my cloths or stick to my face wherever it landed. I returned this product and went with another product that's easier to apply and has a more natural looking end result.

        I've been going through a few different types of eye brow pencils, gels, everything. I just couldn't get them to look natural enough for every day. But then my roommate had this and after trying it I went and bought my own. It's so easy to use, feels so light, looks smooth and natural and not too severe. I love love love it!

          I am not a fan of brow pencils but I tried this one in the store and ended up buying it. I really like it, it is creamy and blends really well with my eyebrows.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

            I've been using a brush-on powder/wax product for several years, but felt it was time to try something different. My brows are very thin, and very light. Without make-up it looks like I don't have any brows. The gal at Ulta suggested this pencil and tried it on me (along with Gimme Brow). The result is a much more natural look than what I had been doing, so I bought both products. The pencil is very easy to use, and stays on far better than anything else I've tried.

            Be sure and write down the correct color before you sharpen pencil below it like I did. Sales girl helped pick out and I got too dark.

                    Hi gorgeous!

                    Since you're fair, you'd look most natural in the lightest shade of instant brow pencil.

                • Q:

                  What product should I use to create brows? I had an accident and my brows had to be shaved for stitches. The regrowth is sparse at best. The skin is very fragile and tears easily if I use a hard pencil or one that requires "lots of force" to apply. Could you recommend any products that will create natural looking brows?
