Most Helpful Positive Review I will never buy anything but this again
I have a bright natural red hair and I looked for YEARS, spending hundreds of dollars on other eyebrow pencils, gels, and pencils trying to find any eyebrow product that matches my hair. All of the other "auburns" or "reds" always have always been brown and NOT red. There have never been a true red that wasn't a Halloweeny red. This is NOT for strawberry blondes or light ginger hair. I DO wish they sold the mascara separately because I like to use an angled brow brush and use the mascara more as a gel, and that is what I like the most for everyday where. The pencil and powder would work better for someone who had fuller brows but without this product I have ZERO brows. I will probably single handedly keep this product/color alive and on the market with how much I purchase it.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's alright
I bought this product about a week ago in the shade espresso. It's a little too big and chunky which makes it a little hard to have a good control while doing my brows. The second step which is the fill in step was a little confusing to me because I while filling in my brows with the fill in, it wasn't really filling in anything. I will say that I love the 3rd step which is the brow gel. It lasts for hours, has a great color, and keeps my brow hairs in place. Overall, this product is okay.

This is by far the best product on the market. I don't know why it doesn't get higher reviews? You get the best combination of pencil, powder and mascara finisher to properly do your eyebrows. There are many products on the market but none encompass all three. You get pencil to lightly fill in areas, the powder is amazing and the mascara gel really finishes it off. I have true red hair (like Angie Everheart) and this is the only nice pigmented set that isn't just brown, or black.
Not sure that I would purchase this product again.

I only used it once and then went back to my other eyebrow pencil.
This is a mess!
Jessica from Oklahoma
I bought this because I cannot find the Micro brow in my color anywhere. I had added both to my order and when I got there they were out of the micro brow so this was my only option. Tried it today and I'm not a fan. First off, the color was just wrong. I bought the same color I buy in micro brow, but this was almost orange. Second, the pencil is so thick it was hard to get hair like strokes.
Then, the powder. The applicator is way too big unless you have thick brows, which I do not. It ended up flaking and smearing so easily! I like the regular eyebrow gel that I've bought on its own, but this one is too thick and dark for me. Overall, I'm just not thrilled with this. I wish it would've worked. I just want my micro brow back !!
My go to as a redhead
stuckonthemoon from Washington D.C.
I don't understand why this product doesn't have better reviews. I bought it as a replacement for my Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencil that was gouging my wallet. This one is a comparable color (difficult to find if you are a redhead). It's the only one I've used now for years. Easy to apply, and very reasonably priced. Other redheads always ask where I get my eyebrow products, because they are often so difficult to find in this color; most companies only offer brown, blonde, and black.
I definitely luv this product but..
Hazel from Texas
Would I buy again not sure.. I do REALLY love the mascara/ spooly side the formula is great. May have to find on its own so I can repurchase. But.. the powder & pencil side not too sure on. I will keep using though great idea.
LW from TN
This is the only brow product I use anymore. Unfortunately you can only find it only and not in store but it's fantastic! It has liner, brow powder, and brow mascara. It makes my brows look just the way I want them And it stays on very well!
Kay L from undisclosed
I love this because it has a great pencil to outline, a powder pencil to fill in and a brush I use to darken some spots. Tip: I do wipe a tiny bit off the powder and brush on tissue before I put on brows or it's a bit dark for me.
The worst - less is more
CarlaS from Portugal
Used to use the micro pencil and was the biggest fan of it. Bought two in a row and when was about the buy the thirt one the store girl said that was no longer available (Portugal).
And bugged me to buy this one. Much more expensive, but well, what could I say do without trying.
So I picked one and when I arrived home and opened it the pencil part was broken. Went for the second time to the store to replace it and the same girl that sold it to me started to claim that if she wanted she could NOT replace another because it could be me to broke it (? was in the day before just less than 12 hours of diference, and as she could see the product wasn't used, I explained her twice that as soon as I arrived home and opened it the pencil fall to the floor and that seemed to be a package/item issue.
Well this is not the best policy to take care of regular costumers.
Regarding this pencil, well the pencil part is too large for this, but this could be a personal taste depending on the shape/design of the brow. The BIG PROBLEM is that the others two steps are simple a waste of environment, money and resources - and mind. The powder doesn't offer any benefit else from the pencil. The mascara is the worst, I mean worst thing I have ever tried in my life - and I mean it, I grow up in the 80´s so you can guess the amount of make up misfits tools and products I have tried from my mom´s cabinet - well none was so horrible like this one. It´s all wrong about it, the formula, the amount of product, the brush size (...).
Bad bad bad
KMN from Lawton, Ok
This is a good product as long as you know what color you use or get someone to help you pick out the right color that's needed for you. I gave it 4 stars because the pencil part does easily brake/ fall out. Also, I have never used the mascara part of the 3- in-1 because it looks too thick. I use the pencil to outline my brows, the powder to fill in, and when I'm done I use a brow brush to "go over" my eyebrows to make sure it's well blended. When I first used the 3 in 1 the powder part was a bit messy so I just stared to gently tap it on my sink to get rid of any loose powder.
I have purchased this three times.
Loli from Scottsdale, az
Pencil is soft so it glides on easlity. The brush is handy as well.
Too orange for this girl
Bears Mom from Missouri
I used this as an eyebrow definer. It was so orange on my skin I returned it. I probably chose the wrong color.
My least favorite of NYX brow products
Crystal from Scottsdale, AZ
Definitely the worst of the NYX brow products. The pencil is great but because it's a 3 in 1 product the pencil portion is less so I went through it in like 1-2 months instead of it lasting like 3/4mos. I rarely do a full face but I pretty consistent fill in my brows. I do a natural fill nothing heavy. The pomade portion (if that's what it's called, it's the round applicator in the middle) was AWFUL it flakes and gets everywhere, it was uneven when applied. I NEVER used that part maybe three times at most, and I feel like it was because I thought maybe my mind was exaggerating so I'd try it again and the same mess under my eye and uneven brows. The brow mascara was fine, I don't think it was a very good match as a whole unit, if you used all three it got very dark very quick and it just looks like painted on brows in a bad way. I used the pencil until it ran out but I definitely wouldn't buy again.
It's okay. But it's your last choice.
Sam from San Diego
The pencil is eh. The powder is eh. The gel is eh.
And THERES NO SPOOLY!! 😩
I never write reviews- DO NOT BUY THIS.
CBrie from New England
I never write reviews, but this is legitimately the worst beauty product I have ever tried in my life, PERIOD.
Firstly, I love NYX Micro Brow. Its my beauty holy-grail. So I was so excited to try this out. I got the color Espresso.
The coloration is VERY warm under-toned. If you don't like things to be orange on your skin, don't get this in the color Espresso.
The tube itself is massive and it is very cumbersome to hold, so I found it really difficult to get the pencil to do what i wanted. I was very disappointed with how it applied.
Out of the box, the powder applicator was crushed and smeared all inside of the tube. I don't know if this is how it is supposed to look, it definitely seemed damaged.
The gel is so wet I made a huge mess all over my hands trying to get the wand out. Even with a very light hand, I came out looking like I had drawn-on eyebrows.
I really wanted to love this product, so I washed it all off and tried it again. I spent 2x as long as I normally do trying to get my brows right, and the second time around it was just as terrible.
At this point I just threw it in the garbage, about an hour after I bought it.
There isn't a single component of the 3-in-1 that is worth keeping it around.
Come on, NYX, you're better than this. :(
DO NOT BUY THIS.
I am SO upset that spent money on it.
Not a fan
Sass from Denver, CO
This is the second NYX eyebrow filling product I have bought this year as I'm trying to find a less expensive dupe or something better to replace the Benefit Goof Proof pencil. So far no dice. The first one I tried was fine but a little too thin (the micro pencil) and this one is a great idea - I love a multi-tool - but terrible execution. The pencil is too thick and it also jams. The powder can't handle being applied on top of primer. The gel wand is too big and messy no matter how many times I wipe it off before application. Overall not a fan of NYX products at this point.
Sad Jenna from Hampton, NH
I got this because of the photos on the box that showed how precise it could make an eyebrow. When I opened it and used the pencil it broke right away....The chalk "filler" is too wide and makes your eyebrows messy and too think (not precise) disappointed, kind of want to return.
Nice in Theory
BuckeyeBeaute from Galloway Ohio
this could be such a fantastic and stand out product for NYX but the component has some serious design flaws and the brush end is just absolutely gigantic, holds extremely too much product, making it nearly impossible to use. Unless that is your willing to waist a ton of product wiping away excess product before using, every single time. The actual pencil part again nice product works fine, but the component yet again if your not paying attention and roll it down too far it will literally shoot the entirety of the product shooting out and to god knows where. The powder is amazing quality def pigmented and a really nice shade. I am a natural red head and finding ANYTHING in a true Auburn color, that isnt the shade of an oompah loompah's hair, is so incredibly rare and hard to find. But once again back to the component, it is basically a sponge tip that sits in the powder. But once again it is a mess to use, and if you drop it while that part is open, the sponge gets contaminated and the powder ends up every where except where it is supposed to be. If NYX were to make each part of this a stand alone product and made tweaks to the little things like the size of the brush and the mechanical portion of the pencil they would be amazing products. But as it sits this is a def hard pass. But please NYX please make these available in a different componant.
This was horrible!
AR from Tucson, AZ
When I was applying the pencil, it broke right away. Also, It did not blend well at all. I took it back the next day.
I wouldn't buy this again.
Lucywii from Kokomo, iN
The defining pencil is too wide to be defining. The fill is too powdery and messy. The set brush must be scraped because the brush contains too much setting liquid.
MrsLakeT from Lake Tapawingo, MO
Great color for true redheads. So hard to find matching colors!
After using it more...
MUACosmo from Wichita
...I have a different opinion that the first review I left. The pencil is too thick to draw realistic hairs to fill in the brows. It also falls out of the holder constantly. The powder I had no problems with. I really liked. The other problem is the setting gel. The brush is too large and too much product comes out on brush. It's very thick and takes awhile to dry.
My recommendation is a revamp. Put the micro pencil in it and change the brush and formula of the gel. Now I use my micro pencil that I absolutely love and an Elf tinted eyebrow gel and I get compliments all the time. I just think NYX needs to tweak this product a little.
Worst accidental purchase ever
Ashleylovescake from Mantua, NJ
I bought this accidentally instead of my usual NYX brow pencil (which I LOVE) and decided to give this a chance since I love my other one so much. This is terrible. The pencil end is too fat to make your eyebrows look realistic and so soft that it immediately started smearing. I tried giving the "fill in" part a try, and that smeared even worse than the pencil. I set it with the gel and set off for my day and I EVERY TIME I went to the bathroom during work I had to clean up my brows because it was smudging all over my face. Extremely disappointed and would never by again.
Such a beautiful red and perfect for gingers
Lucy from Nipomo
The picture of the color shown on the swatches doesn't pick up the red tones it contains. Hands down the best brow product
Good idea but execution needs work
Jen from Minneapolis, MN
I have really mixed feelings about this product. Parts of it are great, but others are horrible.
-The idea is great -you have all you need in one product that is easy to fit in a makeup bag.
-I really like the brow powder once it's applied. The color is a good match for my hair and is exactly what I expected.
-While the powder is great *once applied*, it gets everywhere before that. Once you remove the applicator, the powder has a tendency to fall on your face and smudges when you try to remove it. Definitely do your brows first if you plan on using this powder. I've also found that it helps to tap the applicator against the tube and blow on the applicator before applying and that reduces the fallout significantly.
-The pencil itself is way too thick to be precise. No matter how carefully I would use it, it would always go beyond the edges of my brows and require cleanup.
-For the color "Expresso", the pencil and powder are *significantly* different colors. The powder is a dark, cool brown, while the pencil has a very noticeable red undertone. The two are not paired at all, and using them together looks very strange. Even more frustrating is that the pencil in this set (in color "Expresso") is not the same color as the "Expresso" in the NYX Micro Brow Pencil. The Micro Brow Pencil Expresso is a true match for the powder in this product, but I have no idea where the pencil color here came from.
-The brow mascara. Ugh. I don't know why they thought having a colored mascara for setting was a good idea. This mascara gets everywhere and takes forever to dry. It also has a tendency to smear if it touches anything, so don't let anything near your face for a few **hours** after application. I really wish they'd used a clear setting gel instead, which would have been much more helpful.
I like the idea of this product, but am sorely let down by the implementation. I use the powder for my normal brow look, but not anything else.
Perfect for gingers !

It's so hard to find any products for ginger red hair and this was just perfect
