How to Use
Rated 4.47 out of 5 stars
I really like these brow pencils. Honestly, I didn't have high hopes because at the time I ordered, there was only one review and it wasn't a very positive one. But! In my opinion, these are very good if you can find your shade. I'll say right away that if you are light blonde, you are much better off with the "Studio" brow kit in "Ash" because even the "Taupe" pencil will be too dark for you.
These are suitable for medium blonde to dark.
So I got "Taupe" and "Neutral Brown" because I'm medium blonde at the moment ;). Can't be happier that I decided to give these a try!
The texture of these is very similar to other brands' brow pencils; they aren't too waxy, but not too soft either. They are soft enough to allow the pencil to glide when you apply it, but not too soft, so they don't feel like a sticky gel or anything like that. The pigmentation is very good; you definitely don't need to go over the same spot over and over again, which sometimes happens when the pencil is too waxy or just has poor pigmentation. I included the pictures, so that you can see the difference between the two colors and the amount of product you are getting. Speaking of the amount of products, you don't get much, as you can see, but you can't beat the price. If I had known I was going to like them this much I would have ordered more. Now I have an excuse to place another order soon. ;) Anyways, if you really need something like that, order more than one.
I had worn it all day yesterday and found that the staying power is good as well. Mine stayed on for about 12 hours. I'm pretty sure it could last much longer than that, but I usually wash my makeup off at this point.
Oh! And I didn't find the spoolie too rough, as one of the reviewers mentioned. I have the spoolie from the "Essentials" line and I never find myself reaching for it because that one really IS rough and kind of "sparse" . I found this spoolie much softer and I started using it right away; didn't get the urge to grab my regular spoolie.
So yes, I would most definitely recommend this product if the shade matches you. It would be good if they would came out with more shades though. ;)
I bought this brow pencil in the neutral brown shade and I'm not unhappy or too happy with it.
Color is nice
not too waxy
convenient size (fits well in hand)
fast and easy to use
does the job well enough
brush bristles are really rough and rigid
the pencil "lead" constantly falls out
there is only about 2 inches of the pencil so it will not last you too long
It does the job but it's not that amazing (at all). I'd recommend it to someone who might be new to makeup but I probably will not purchase again

A good color blonde eyebrow pencil is hard to find, but this one is perfect! I love that you never need a sharpener and it has an eyebrow comb at the opposite end. Also, the price is unbeatable.

For me this is one of those super rare products you find that are not only perfect for you, they're so cheap you want to buy several at once.
I have super fair skin, extremely sparse strawberry blonde eyebrows (it looks like I shaved the outer halves off), not much experience with brow products, and a penchant for going from Voldemort to frida Kahlo brows with what would seem like a neutral unassuming brow tint. the other products I keep on me are high-end brands; $20+ each. Those work sometimes, but not all the time. This product is practically foolproof. It makes my brows look fuller while maintaining definition and shape, the blonde color is a true neutral (no red or green tints), the applicator is great, product has never chipped or failed, I haven't run out of my first stick after 2 months of daily use, the spoolie on the end usually fixes any discrepancies between the brows, it stays on all day…. I can't think of a bad thing about this product.

Best eyebrow pencil ever with natural colors, creamy application and long lasting. A total bargain!

Nina from Ohio
I have pretty thick brows as is so when I use products, I have to be VERY careful not to overdo it or I look crazy. This product builds up nicely so im in full control.
Alo from 603
It does the job but it's really shear and doesn't last long. It also doesn't look natural.
Shri from California
I love this pencil, it's good affordable and easy to apply
Elf from South Dakota
I haven't bought any other eyebrow product after this. Good buy.
Dana from NY
Good afforable entry level brow pencil. I was nervous the color wouldn't match bc I have ash blonde hair and my brows are naturally pretty dark. I went with the neutral brown and while it took a minute to get used to filled brows, I think the color match is great and I would pick it again.
The pencil is a little stiff and hard to apply, and I couldn't use it to carve out an arch, but it works great for casual everyday brow filling. The spoolie blends it out well, which makes all the difference.
katie from amesbury
i've been using this eyebrow pencil for over a year, and it is hands down my favorite eyebrow product i've bought. lasts a super long time and is wicked easy to use

Summer from Greer SC
Being a redhead, there's not many options for brow pencils. This one is perfect for me and it's a steal in price!
ABW from Mississippi
Cheap and good brow pencil for a basic brow look. It does not last long at all.
Alajo from Pikeville

Trying the tattoo brow and other brow products bc I'm trying to
Find other alternatives thats perform and last as long as the abh and this is it!!!!
Lydia from Florida
i have used this pencil since i was about 13 and i'm 18 now. i've tried benefit and Anastasia brow products but i always come back to this one because it works so well and is so inexpensive. have had them break easily once in a while..could be random batches but i would 100% recommend this product.
Manda from Ohio
Definitely my go to , like how brush / spooly is included !
Bea from Pennsylvania
The auburn is the perfect color for me! Incredible price. Con is how big the spoolie is, hard to keep my brows looking neat…
Jess from North Carolina
I love love love this brow pencil. Makes doing my brows a breeze. Use it with elf brow gel and you're good to go! Pigment is vibrant and long lasting.
Kelli from College Station, TX
The application for this project is super easy and the color options are decent enough to where there is always one I can use. Brushing it out helps a lot before and after application. Stays on all day. Auburn definitely has more red. Taupe and neutral brown are more universal even with the red I have in my hair.
Lindz87 from Cleveland, TN
I love how easy it is to use this product. I have somewhat sensitive skin and have not had any issues with this. In the summer, I do get an occasional breakout, but not anything out of the ordinary. I do tend to have oily eyebrows and eyelids so this doesn't stand up to all day wear, but I still prefer it.
Letty from Houston Texas
This brow pencil is the only brand that I have tried and then continued to purchase and use
none from jacksonville, fl
