How to Use
Rated 4.45 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

I've repurchase this for almost 5 years and tbh nothing else I've tried caughts me like this. I have some gaps in my brows and the shade Taupe is PEEFECT to do the job; it's like putting a little shade to define and fill in those spares areas. The texture itself is quite dry and because of that I find that, the times that I have slept with it on, it stays the 24h on.
The way I like to is it is to fill in the tail of my brow, blended w the spoolie and comb them the way I want with my hair gel.
For such a good price, and AMAZING quality I'll feel uncomfortable to splurge on other brow products.

I've been using this forever since I first started makeup. It does the job and I like that it's not super pigmented so I don't end up looking with too dark eyebrows. Recently I've been only using brow gel instead of pencil and been using this pencil for my soft winged eyeliner and it works wonderful

I honestly tried this the first time and wasn't a huge fan. Then I tried it again a month or so later & I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I wear it every single day. I purchased the blonde and it's the absolute perfect shade. If you're picky with your eyebrows idk if you'll like it. But I love this product.

Works well. Brows look good.

Use this product on a daily basis. Only brow pencil I like and for such a low price! It goes on smooth and is really natural looking.
Dawn from Virginia
I have tried so many browsers pencils. Some are harsh and don't blend. Some are an odd color or streak. This brand goes on so smooth. It's retractable. The color is well pigmented and you can layer more if needed. And is inexpensive. That's a win, win gift to myself.
Heidi from Tulsa, OK
Great color match, easy to use. It holds up well under humidity/sweat. Out of all the elf products I've tried, this is my favorite.
Gabbie from Orlando
This product along with the ultra precision brown pencil are my go to brow products these last few months. The neutral brown tone is perfect for me. This product is creamy and easy to blend. Sometimes I can easily go with just using this product alone to fill in my eyebrows (when their well shaped/waxed etc). Just wish there was a little more product in it. I do go through this pretty frequently but it's super affordable so I don't mind repurchasing often.
Crew from PA
First time I used this I was impressed by the color and ease of use. The second time I tried to use it the color stick had broken off and there was no more product there! I didn't think I had done anything wrong to cause this but I will repurchase as the price point was excellent and I did like the color. I will then update this review.
kel from cleveland
i think that the pencil is too thick and the pointed tip disappears after one use. i have another elf product that has a built in sharpener that works well with the pencil, but without that the product it is very large and goes on messy. if you prefer something small to have a natural look to your brows, i wouldn't recommend this product.
LaurieJ from Palm Desert, CA
Great price, great product the only gripe is I wish it had a bit more product inside the pencil.
Des from Winston Salem, NC
I like this brow pencil- it does a nice job of making my brows look fuller. However, the pencil isn't as sharp as I would like, so it isn't great in terms of precision.
Dani from Fort Collins
I love this product so much you get to play around with and decide how dark or light you want your eyebrows! This product has been a go to for my I bought it 3 times now. It is an essential in my everyday "makeup routine" comes in a variety of shades and is perfect for teens. I'm in high school and I love it I do sports as well so I don't like heavy makeup! …. Perfect!

It's so dark and my eyebrows are slaying
ava from georgia
i love this product! it's definitely for more of a natural look and not a "insta brow" i use it to darken up the existing hairs and make my brows fuller. so great for the price
Meg from KY
I've tried lots of brow products and this is by far my favorite. I have very light, almost non existent brows and this makes doing my brows easy. It also doesn't have a gritty, dry texture like my ABH brow wiz tends to get.
Jazzy from Hercules, CA
I use this product before my elf wow brow gel. I really love it however it does not come with that much product but for 3 dollars it's really good!
Margaret from spring, Tx
I really like this brow pencil from elf , very pigmented, smooth, no pulling blends nicely .. however it could be a little better like better packaging cause its cute but too much room for the crayon to fall out which mine did.. twice.. so improve that and this will be five stars easy!
Kk from Spring TX
I love it it's easy and stays on all day also it's super cheap
PDB from USA
It's all right for the price. I wouldn't suggest it if you're going for super thin strokes because the crayon is *very* soft, but if you're just looking to fill in a little bit then this is great.
Em from USA
I've used this brow pencil for years and I always go back it!
conner from ohio
I have VERY light blonde, sparse eyebrows and I'm not joking when I say I've tried just about every product from tints, pencils, powders, etc. I really enjoyed NYX pencil for the price and love ELF brand in general, so gave this a try due to an influencer review.
This pencil is not a typical pencil and retracts up and down. It goes on very smooth and barely have to press down to get color and also natural looking. I still prefer Benefit Goof Proof Pencil, that's my favorite hands down,, because it's the only one that I don't have to spend alot of time on while providing a natural smooth color but it's so expensive for a brow product! I would def use this ELF pencil again if needed or as backup, I am color Taupe with blonde hair and blond LIGHT eyebrows.
Marie from Dayton
Very good and reasonably priced eyebrow pencil
nygal from nyc

MSJR from Ms
It's hard finding a redhead brow pencil that doesn't look too orange, brown or burgundy, this pencil is a perfect combination of the colors. Bonus is that it's so cheap in price! It's the only pencil I use now.
