Most Helpful Critical Review Please bring back old formula in midnight brown!!!
I have been using this brow pencil in the color midnight brown for years. Now that the formula has changed it doesn't go on as well and the closest color to midnight brown is rich brown which I'm so unhappy with. I sadly will not be purchasing this item anymore. Please, please, please bring back the old formula in the
midnight brown color so I can come back to being a loyal customer of this product!

I've bought it for awhile but it just not the same
Midnight Brown from New York City
Why did Cover Girl discontinue this color. It's the most popular one. I've used this for the last 10 years. I'm devastated. Please bring it back.
Change for the worse
Kittysue6 from NC
I have been using midnight brown for nearly two decades. This new formal and color (rich brown) are horrible. It barley shows up. It is nowhere near as dark. The amount of pressure and force needed to leave color is ridiculous. This loyal Covergirl will be looking elsewhere for her eyebrow needs.

This has been happening to me for a few years- at least one is the two in the package breaks off as I sharpen. I'm using the sharpener so my only guess is the ingredients aren't holding up or they're sitting in a hot truck or warehouse. Please note the pictures- the second one shows how large the piece is when it falls out.
This has been happening for several years. The color is perfect for me otherwise I'd be gone already.

Why do the pencils constantly crumble? When I sharpen a pencil the tip falls off 3 or 4 times until I barely have an inch of pencil left. I'm gonna have to give up on them. I really like the color so I keep buying them but this happens so often. I'm done now.
Great Color Match and easy application
M Hilard from Orlando , FL
Easy to apply and matches eyebrow color well , however it breaks easily on sharpening so there is waste
Bring back midnight brown!!!!
Ouisie from Connecticut
Bring Midnight Brown back to your collection!
I am a devoted customer, for 20 years and am beside myself with its disappearance. SoftBrown is too light, Dark Brown lacks depth but Midnight Brown has/had just the right amount of blacks/blues/reds to create a beautiful natural looking brown brow.
Please please reconsider a new issue of the same color. I've tried all your brow colors and formulas and have returned them all.
Your pencils are perfect for a natural look, you just have to return Midnight Brown to the color palette - please!!!
So much for brown...
amatty from Maine
I bought the shade "Rich Brown"; the pencil itself is a dark neutral brown, but the product looked like more of an ash brown. Either way, both of those shades would match me, so I went ahead and bought it. I put it on and it is RED, not brown at all. Looks absolutely ridiculous, like a toddler borrowed their mother's makeup. I included a picture of the stark difference in shade between the pencil, the product, and the actual result on my face. I suppose I should have expected this from a cheap brand, but I've gotten way better results from other products of a similar price point (Colourpop, NYX, etc.). I will be washing this off and throwing it away.
Type Fast from Carbondale, IL
I have used this product for years and have continued buying thinking I just got a bad package. But for at least the last year every package I buy has flaws. The first 1/2 inch of the pencil works and then the next 1-1/2 inches has to be wasted. It is as if the lead is not attached to the wood casing. As soon as the sharpened lead is touched, the lead falls out. The only way to fix is to keep sharpening (with included sharpener) which makes a large portion of the pencil unusable. It also seems waxy and much harder to apply. Don't think I will be buying this product in the future.
No . I didn't like.

I didn't like .
These eyebrow pencils do not draw.
Kaitlyn2017 from undisclosed
I bought these to fill in my eyebrows, but they would just not mark on my eyebrows or skin at all. I think maybe they have too much wax, or not enough pigment, or something. I do not recommend buying these because they are not effective.
Bring back my midnight brow pencil please.
Darmae from Clayton WI
I bought Rich brown brow pencil instead of Midnight brown pencil. Not happy.
I would buy this product again and again
Ani from Orange County, CA
It's good and I've used them for years. The quality of their products didn't diminish over the years.
Best eye brow pencils!
benes from San Francisco, CA
I have been using your eye brow pencils for over 40 years! I absolutely love them but am so sad that you discontinued the brown/black choice. Please bring it back!!! The dark brown does not work for me and have resorted to using the black, but not my favorite!
Also miss the fragrance free liquid foundation. I had to go elsewhere for foundation but used yours for at least 25 years. Please bring back, if possible and I will return as a loyal
Back to great!
Sraa from Washington
I've been using this product for years. Then it changed from great to terrible as you can see in a lot of the other reviews. I was at the store and noticed that the product design changed again. I was reluctant to try it again, but I'm glad I did. I'm happy to say that the product is great again. Goes on perfectly and it doesn't break off when I sharpen the pencil. Thank you for listening to the consumers and fixing it.
Bevy from Sebring FL
I have been unable to find CG #4143P6 a charcoal which is gray and all others you now have are too dark. Where can I get what I need.
Great Eyebrow Filler
JenSal from Houston TX
I bought this the other day and I really loved the finish. It looks natural but it colored in everything I wanted. Please do not discontinue.
DO NOT BUY
Lauren Z from Atlanta ya
I bought this 2 days ago and used it 5 mins ago and I was very unimpressed with this product. It doesn't come out well I got a soft brown and I can't even tell a difference to my brown at all. This product is terrible.
Dimplezz76 from Fontana, california
I bought this to do my eyebrows and was happy to see that by end of day was still on and didnt smear.
Melany45 from Ruskin, fl
I bought this to make my eyebrows easier and it did, so creamy
Okie Red from Tulsa, OK
It wasn't soft enough to blend much.
Could I give a 0?
Rach from Virginia Beach, Virginia
This product simply didn't work. I will be returning it as soon as I can get to Ulta. I jokingly told my friend the only color it turned my eyebrows is red because I was really trying to get the pencil to deposit color on me but it just wouldn't.
Please bring back the midnight brown color
reido from Columbia SC
My daughter was in town recently and grabbed my eye brow pencil. It was one I had bought a while back but just taken out of the package. She had tried several other of your colors but did not like any of them. She loved the midnight brown and we looked everywhere for one and I now see you have discontinued it. Apparently there are others who were happy with this color also. Wish you would bring it back.
Not a Kohl or soft pencil
Maggie39 from New Jersey
Agree with reviews that say it just doesn't work - it is hard as a rock so you can't apply it smoothly. A true pencil such as they claim this is would be a Kohl pencil, which glides on softly and smoothly. Waste of money.
not a great product
bri from joplin
This is definitely NOT a good eyeliner. it's not much better as a brow product but it is good for faintly filling in thin patches and sketching out the perimeter if you shaved off the outer third like I have done.
