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!
Reviewed by 5304 customers Good for the price, not the best color for me
Lisa C from Kansas City
This is a typical very soft, fine pencil that makes the color easy to apply and also easy to wipe off, either deliberately or accidentally. If the color suits you, it is a good buy. One reviewer thought that the Taupe color was too light, but for me, a strawberry blonde with pale skin, it is too dark and looks harsh. I will stick with the Ulta pencil in Taupe, which is the same price and has a warm tone that looks natural on me.
Perfect doupe for the abh brow wiz !!!
KB from Indiana
It's honestly just as great, especially for half the price of the abh pencil ! Will be buying this from now on !!
Color was not blonde
Sam from Apple Valley
The color was orange and would be great for someone with red hair, but way too orange/warm to be considered a blonde.
Mich from Ma
I love abh brownwiz but don't always feel like dishing out that much for it. This is an excellent alternative. Have bought several of these and will continue to re buy
Replacing my ABH Brow Wiz
Shay from Georgia
I can't tell the difference between this and ABH Brow Wiz except the product seems to be more stiff (which I like) and the price. I will definitely repurchase when it runs out.
Drew from USA
I used to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil. At less than half the price, I have to say this is a near perfect dupe for a perfect eyebrow pencil. The only difference is the slight variation in shades between the two products. NYX colors seem to be more warm in general, while ABH runs more cool. But I find that the formula is indistinguishable and applies beautifully. I've used at least three of these pencils completely and I will keep on buying.
Favorite for years
DJ from Indiana
Easy to make look natural with a little know-how.
can't get product out
Beacher from NJ
Can not get anything out of pencil. There is no tip. I keep twisting it and nothing comes up. I assume it's either used up or empty.
Forever a go to
Makeup for Days from Orlando, FL
My go to for everyday brows. It lasts the days despite living in a very humid place and having inherently oily skin. Forever a favorite. Love NYX as a whole.
I would not buy this product
Val from Madison WI
The color I purchased is blonde for my eyebrows. It goes on orange NOT blonde. I am very disappointed & would not recommend this color unless you have orange hair.
Linda from Madison
I used to use Anastasia brow wiz for a while but it starting becoming to pricy to continue to repurchase and had to find a dupe. I use the shade expresso and I love how I can still see my eyebrow hairs through the pencil, you can definitely build it up and lasts all day through my 16 hour shifts. I've repurchased over 8 times and will continue to use this! Holy grail!
ANN from VA
It blends with your eyebrows smoothly.
Margaret from spring, tx
I still really like this brow pencil! it applies nice and smooth , easy to use.
now for some cons ..
the formula is bit drying and by end of day my brows to become itchy.
also when I go to blend with the spooly it takes some of what I just did with it and I end up having to re apply until it stays put.
Sue from Wisconsin
It's always a fine line to draw my brow shape.
Blonde is Red!
Maranda from Stuart VA
The blonde shade is this awful red/orange color & doesn't look flattering at all!
Kimber from Jersey
I always use Anastasia Brow Wiz and I have to say this is right there with it for half the price. I am one for buying what I want and if it works good I will keep buying it. This is my new go to and if your looking to save some $ this is the one to go with. I love Anastasia products but it would be foolish to keep buying that pencil when this one works exactly the same and last long. I'm sold goodbye brow wiz !!
still #1 for me
Margaret from spring, Tx
great brow crayon. period. it blends very nice, comfortable application. lasts all day. has made doing my brows a lot easier!!
tip can dry out so its good to quick warm up on back of hand.
Nice quality, I would buy this again.
Teejay from Baton Rouge, La.
Very good quality at an affordable price.
this is my go-to brow pencil
Kettisketti from Huntsville, AL
I use this consistently, its one of the easier brow pencils to apply
Definitely a good buy
Lena from Memphis, Tn
I usually purchase the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand for my eyebrows but this is not bad at all. Can't really see a difference.....other than the price. I may have to continue to purchase this one!
MY HOLY GRAIL!
Nikki from Pennsylvania
I adore this eyebrow pencil! I used to swear by my Anastasia brow wiz but I just went through them way too fast and I couldn't afford $20+ every month or two for an eyebrow pencil.
I discovered this product and fell IN LOVE! Not only is the color perfect but it still lasts me about 2-3 months and it's half the price. Don't get me wrong I did love my ABH brow pencils but the NYX does the job just as well!
didn't work for me
kaylee from colorado
I got the shade taupe, it didn't show up on my skin hardly at all, and I'm pretty fair. I got a little out of it if I pressed really hard
Great look & long lasting
Dawn from Chicago
I use this daily & it last up to 12 hrs, sometimes longer
Lisa from California
The main reason why I love this product is because the tip is so small, you can really shape your brows and get the detail you need. I don't find that the shade is off. The only caveat would be that it can smudge easily, but that's not a big deal for me.
Product ok, color a bit off
MutedWarmOlive from Seattle, WA
The espresso shade turned out to have a very ruddy/warm undertone which doesn't really work for me. I'm NC20-25 East Asian descent and usually go for the second-darkest shade in eyebrow products because pure black can be harsh. Picking the wrong color is my fault but I'm still only giving this 4 stars because there are a lot more micro brow products at the drugstore now and I don't feel this is as remarkable for the price anymore.
