    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

    My eyebrows are light colored. I don't pluck much at all, but I need to fill in to add depth. I love using this pencil because it is gel-based, and the brush is awesome for blending. I can use as much or as little as I like. I have to be careful to not smooth my eyebrows with my fingers during the day because it could rub off. Be sure to pick the right color or it might look unnatural.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

      This pencil has too much wax in it and not enough powder. Looks unnatural for those of us with thin eyebrows. Will stick with the Mac & or Chanel eyebrow pencil.

        I suffer with a thyroid problem. My brows are disappearing. I wanted something that would not look natural and not over done. This is the product. Love Mrs. Deb in our Ulta Store. She is the Queen of Brows. All I had to do was ask and she pointed me in the right direction. Very pleased with the results.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

              I have the lightest shade. It does what it's supposed to, but it's very very waxy-feeling, very heavy feeling on the brows. Even after combing the color through with the spookier they still feel funny up there. My other problem is that it wears off after only a few hours, and I use eyeshadow primer under it and a setting powder over it. Also, it's a very soft texture, almost gel like... So you use it up really quick, I have to sharpen it after almost every use (and I don't even have that much to fill in). The only time I reach for this is when I'm running late for work and just need to throw some color on.

                    This is the first and last brow liner that I have ever used :) I love that the brush is connected to it, that just means I have to carry less items with me.

                    I like the product but i have to sharpen the pencil every couple of days therefore i'm going through it very fast. Too fast for the price of it.

                      Needed a good brow pencil. The person at the Benefit Brow station used this to define my blonde/white brows and voila! I had real brows that looked so natural. Never in all my life has anything been so easy to do. Not exactly a pro with make up but this is foolproof and does a nice job. The wax and color tame the brows and just looks smart.
