In the past, I always used the previous formulation of this product, and was dismayed to discover that Taupe was no longer available. I read the reviews on this product and was very wary of ordering, but I was completely out of the Taupe. So, I decided to try it despite all of the negative reviews it has received. I ordered the brown pencil, but was worried that I was wasting my money. When I received it, I gave it a try immediately and honestly, I was prepared to be disappointed. Imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that it was not only a comparable product, it was in fact a much better formulation! The color was great and a far less artificial look than the Taupe had been and the consistency was perfect. The result was much more natural and soft. Thank you, Lancome for such a wonderful product. You never disappoint!
I have used my Lancome brow pencil for many, many years as my brows have become more sparse with each passing year. Now I only have a few hairs on each brow and the rest is bare skin. The old formula went on smoothly, not the new formula; it is terrible. I used natural blond which was perfect for me. As one reviewer said, I have 2 nubs left. They are so small I have to hold them with the pliers to sharpen sparingly. With the original formula, friends were surprised to learn that most of my brow hairs were gone as the pencil looked very natural. Not now. Please bring back the original formula! The search for a replacement is exhausting and expensive. So very disappointed in the quality from Lanc?me. This product is not up to your usual standards.

I am honestly disappointed in this new pencil for brows. First of all, I was a dedicated Sable brow pencil user for the past 35 years and to have it discontinued was a huge disappointment. I have had to make other purchases, brow pencils, only to use them a couple times because I dislikes it. I can't find the right shade, I don't like how it feels applying it. Is there anyway to put in production the Sable brow powdery pencil again? There are so many loyal customers. Who's dumb marketing idea was it to discontinue it? Hoping it comes back.

Giving up on this product! Can never get the shade I want; they keep changing colors. Frustrated and done!

I hear you, fellow reviewers. I have used Le Crayon powder pencil brow/Sable for many years. I'm 55.
It is/was the ABSOLUTE BEST BROW PENCIL!!
Please help me, post here your new favorite brow pencil. I am on the search for my next & would love to know what is comparable to my old pencil. Thank you!

I've used Sable ( Le Crayon) for years. Perfect match for my brows. This new pencil is awful. Brown is too light and dark brown too dark. The powdery effect of this pencil is terrible , it doesn't stay on like the other pencil. Searching now for a new pencil
Anissa from Houston, Texas
Love the powder effect, love the color. I will likely find a replacement outside of Lancôme than be forced to use something different within your line

I've been using the taupe eyebrown pencil for more years than I remember. I totally agree with other reviewers who complain about cosmetic companies discontinuing popular colors for no good reason....this happens time and time again. Loyalty is shattered because it sends customers in search of a match elsewhere. How can this be good for business? My current taupe pencil is down to a small nub and I am using it sparingly because I, too, feel it is the absolute best color EVER and I cannot find a suitable replacement. Loyal customers would pay handsomely for products that they have come to love and depend on.....very very very dumb to discontinue amazing products. I will continue to search elsewhere for my next eyebrow pencil until and unless Lancome can bring back taupe.

Great brown liner. I have always preferred a brow pencil that includes a brush. This one applies very easily unlike many other brands where you literally have to rub your eyebrows off to get any color to come off the pencil. I highly recommend this pencil & love my purchase!

I so miss the old brow pencil- but was more of a SABLE fan. As you can see from so many comments, 'improving' product line, and/or discontinue colors, can be disappointing to loyal customers. Many of the products I've used over the last 30 years have been discontinued. Maybe there is some kind of market strategy on your end, but it's a big issue for your loyal customers. At at the price of cosmetics these days, to experiment (mostly unsuccessfully) with new ones is no longer an option. I rarely buy any Lancôme products anymore because of this!

I have used the taupe shade for 15 years and came here to purchase a few more. I'm so disappointed to see it's been discontinued. I see here that others are frustrated too. Please bring it back, it was the absolute best shade.
Kawi from Ohio
Taupe was the best color - perfect for so many skin tones. I've tried the new ones and none of them are a match. Please bring back taupe!
artmommi from walled lake
I have very thin brows and this pencil helps fill them in and look natural it lasts all day and doesn't rub off like some others.
LaurieH from Florida
I've been using this brow pencil on and off for years and always go back to it. Highly pigmented and powdery soft. Great for a natural look or, a more defined look when I add detail with concealer on a small brush. love it! I get compliments on my brows all the time.

I do not like this new pencil. used the Le Crayon powder pencil for years. Please please please bring it back, and include Natural Blonde again.
TKO from Twin Cities
This is so awesome! Goes on smooth and looks so natural. I use light brown and I'm strawberry blonde/light caramel.
Guama from Georgia
As said before, this is not an acceptable alternative to LaCrayon Poudre!! Please bring it back!!!
BedHeadRed from Tampa, Fl
I used the taupe pencil for decades, it was my holy grail product. Now, it's gone! (Fortunately, I had backups and just recently ran out.)
Why would you discontinue such an iconic product and replace it with the brow pencil you offer now. The colors aren't good and the couple that I've tried from your current collection make me look like I've drawn on clown brows, even the blond. Not cool, Lancôme!
joan781 from wadsworth ohio
used this eyebrow pencil for years, and taupe was the only color to work for me. Please bring it back. I have lost my eyebrows and your powder pencil is the only one that works on doing brows and taupe was the only color that looked good on me.
Gaberial from California
I am a brown skinned woman with Natural black Hair and Taupe STILL was my best brow color. it was universal and looked good on any and every one. Bring it back immediately!
BARE from undisclosed
Why would you discontinue "Taupe" ? I've used this color and pencil most of my adult life. What a HUGE disappointment. Thought I could always rely on Lancome.
julia-c from sammamish wa
You have got to be freaking kidding me? No more Taupe in the powdery brow pencil? I have literally worn this shade since my college days and I am 60 now. This is the exact match for my brows. Why on earth you would discontinue this shade is beyond me because I imagine it is a very popular shade. It is a kick in the face! I am truly sick of cosmetics companies doing this to long time loyal customers and the same with perfumes being changed and discontinued ad nauseam. And please do not tell me how you understand my frustration etc etc like you have to other reviewers here; spare me.
Mook from Walnut Creek, CA
The only eyebrow pencil I have every really liked was your taupe pencil. None of the remaining colors work for my blonde complexion with my nearly transparent brows. And I've tried lots of other brands, but I'm hoping and waiting for Lancome to come to their senses and return the taupe.
LoriAnneWilliams from Syracuse NY
I was the counter manager of lancome about 20 years ago. I loved everything, especially the eyebrow pencil. So sad that they discontinued that one. This new one is HORRIBLE! Very disappointed in this new pencil. I don't really have eyebrows so I've relied on that pencil for decades and now it barely even goes on. Really disappointed in lancome. Bring back the Le Poudre pencil. PLEASE?!
Joy cee from New Jersey
Loved the taupe..don't like any of the other colors..going with another brand..your not listening to your customers..your loss.
