Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

I love how easy this product goes on and the natural color that is just dark enough for my fair skin. My one problem is that when I sharpen the pencil a lot of product is wasted. Also the pencil is just difficult to sharpen overall.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

            The instant brow from benefit works wonders! It makes my not so full eyebrows looks thick and well shaped! I love the brow brush, to control my crazy eyebrow hairs, and the pencil is very easy and smooth to use. Unfortunately it goes very fast, I'm always having to sharpen the pencil. And it tends to flake :-/ especially when you use the pencil the. Use the brush. Other then that it's awesome!

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

                  It worked great the first use only. It doesn't sharpen well, which makes application difficult. I sharpen before every use and I still can't get it to a precise tip. And with all the sharpening I've been doing it won't last more than a month. Will not repurchase

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:

                    It's very natural looking. Goes on creamy and keep brows in place. My biggest complaint is I have to sharpen it before every use so pencil will not last very long. Reasonably priced, but my more expensive brand lasted much longer and ends up being a better value. I will not buy this again just because of value.

                      I use this with the gimmie brow gel. Adds a little more definition. Quick and easy to use. Very soft. I have had a problem with sharpening pencil, but it could be my sharpener. All in all great product.

                      • 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?

                        I bought this brow pencil and I love it, so I'm going to ask the silly question. . . can I sharpen this pencil? I am assuming, but wasn't sure.
