Most Helpful Positive Review Great little pencil!
I've used powders, waxes, shadow, and all kinds of pencils. I've been growing my brows out for over a year now (slow going thanks to years of overplucking) and still have major sparse areas. A few swipes with the spoolie, soft "line" just above and below brows, then fill in...spoolie quickly again to soften color, and tiny bit of wax to keep them set. I did both in less than 5 minutes, and also used the NYX "magic" pencil to highlight/clean up. Highly recommend both! Side note - I was really unsure what color to get. I'm a natural light/medium ash brunette, but I dye it much darker. I hate any orange/red tones, and taupes just kinda of look "off." I got the ash brown pencil, and it's PERFECT!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great product quality. Bad colors
I was super excited to see this new product! Finally an affordable mechanical pencil! I purchased the color blonde and auburn. I was very disappointed with the colors. The color blonde was extremely yellow! My hair color is blonde and I usually use ABH brow wiz in taupe. And that is even a little too dark for me. But the NYX blonde looked terrible. Borderline high lighter yellow! There is no "ash blonde" or "taupe" just a scary yellow lol. As for the auburn color. It was ok. I used it in my sister. She is a red head. I had to put a darker powder over it. It is good for a light red head. The quality of the pencils are great! The colors need major improvement!

This pencil is just as good as some of the other eyebrow pencils, at a quarter of the cost. There are many color shades to choose from. Highly recommended!

i love using this when im doing a natural makeup look. i also use the Anastasia dip brow, but only when i have a full face of makeup on. This gives me a more subtle look and makes it easy for me line my brows and fade them with the spool brush on the end of the pencil. it stays put all day as well, especially when i set my brows with clear brow gel which i appreciate. i also love that it is retractable which makes it safe for traveling!
Too stiff and weird color
Teags from Phoenix AZ
I bought this to use on my friend who is extremely pale with blonde eyebrows. The product was too stiff and had practically no color and when it did it was an orange/yellow shade. I prefer the color pop one over this. It could be better in a different shade possibly. The Spoolie is great though.

I've been purchasing this eyebrow pencil for sometime now and it never fails! Easy to use and inexpensive.
Love this pencil
CFA from California
Fills in my eyebrows and makes them look totally natural. It stays in all day and is super easy to use.

It's like a crayon hard to get on and then it fades off
Has become a favorite
CRC from California
At first I didn't like how hard this pencil is compared to others I've used. However, with more practice, I found I appreciated the light touch and it allowed me to fill out my thin brows in an easier, more natural way. Now it's become an affordable favorite. The taupe color is a good neutral dark blonde for me.
Quick, easy to use
Taylor from California
I left the benefit brand after their brow line changed. So happy to find this pencil at this price point. I use it daily to fill in spots. Love it.
Not very creamy hard to draw
Los from La
First the color was AWFUL (espresso) super red not enough black / brown tone and it didn't glide on super well, but if you like barely there brows then this is perfect for u
Best I've found for thinning brows!

I discovered a few years ago, when a new ULTA opened in my area.. I asked about a good pencil for thin brows and this was recommended. Still using it!!

Very easy to use for a beginner. Wanted to define my brows in a quick and easy way. This did the trick!
Don't waste your money!
calitalgal from So Cal
Since you can't test any products during this time, I relied on the descriptions and "try on" page on Ulta.com. Don't be fooled. The color is nothing like it's pictured! The spoolie was so rough and the product isn't smooth. Going back to Anastasia! Costs more, but so worth the price.

Easy to apply.
So good for the price!!!
Gabby from Puerto Rico
I love this brow pencil. Before buying this I only used the Anastasia brow pomade but I wanted a product that I could use when I was in a rush or didn't want to wear a lot of makeup. It works so good, the color matches perfectly, your eyebrows look full but natural and after applying an eyebrow gel, it lasts all day. Will repurchase!!!
Blends perfectly and matches so well! Love it

lemme start off by saying i would give this a 3.5 if i could. Anyway, I thought this brow pencil was pretty good for the price. I got this on sale for about 7 bucks so i decided why not. I think it's kinda similar to the abh brow wiz (not exact but a good alternative if you're not willing to pay $23) I feel like I would rate this higher and probably even use it more if there was a good color match for me. Naturally I have strawberry blonde hair and my eyebrows are pretty dark. Very cool toned and i guess ash brown is the best way I could describe them. Problem is that the NYX ash brown pencil is wayyyyyy too dark for me and the color I actually ordered which is Taupe just isn't quite the right color. The best match I have found is the abh brow wiz in taupe which sucks because it's so expensive and even then, the color isn't exact. I would say give it a try if you have a very distinct brow color or you already know which one works for you. still on the search for the perfect brow product for me 😕
I've been using this product for 7 years now. I just love it
Jade from El Paso, TX
I use this to fill in my brows. I love the quality of this product especially for the price it's at. It's as good if not better than the high end ones.
kt from atlanta, ga
I don't know if my brows are already too full but this really doesn't help much with defining or filling in my dark blonde brows. Takes a lot to get the pigment to show up and uses a lot of the pencil. Would not recommend.
Didn't care for this brow pencil
Mikki from Wildwood, MO
The formula is way too dry. Does not go on easily. And the blonde color was waaaaay off. The color had too much orange in it. Just didn't like it.
not very happy the last two times purchased
H from Illinois
I have used this product for a long time. The past couple of times it has not lasted very long. Very disappointed.
Wendy from Middleville, MI
Easy to use and achieve a natural look.
My eyebrows are very light and extremely sparce, so I have to basically draw them on. I've tried MANY products in all price ranges and this is my favorite.
I Love it
Angie from Paramount,ca
I was able to get so pretty for my 10 year wedding anniversary
Very much recommend
Brandy from Arizona
I've been using this eyebrow pencil for the longest time, I absolutely love it!! I totally recommend this pencil!:))
Maybe I was doing it wrong?
Sierra from Boise, ID
Everyone seems to have rave reviews of this item but I was barely able to get any payoff from it. I did get some product, so if you want a very subtle, natural brow; this might be your jam. Didn't work for what I wanted though.
Jackie R from NYC
Kinda have to push down for the color to even appear. I wish I would've gotten a shade darker. The shade picture are different to the product☹️ would recommend if you want that soft natural look:)
