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!

I ran out of my blonde eye brow pencil and bought this NYX in blonde and it looks orange/yellow!! Absolutely terrible color!
comparable to Anastasia

best eye brow pencil ever. and in a good assortment of shade
Easy to use, great price

I was always terrible at doing my brows until I tried this pencil. It's thin and easy to sketch out the shape you want or draw individual hair-like strokes. It lasts too. The only drawback for me is that I wish the black shade was more of a true black than dark, ash brown.
Emilyglow from Chicago avenue
Usable but not great. Color matching has to be very accurate as the pencil is very thin and can only be used to mimic brow strokes. I got an darker and light one and found out only th Edsel we one work for me.
Best from Claysville
Love the formulation. Isn't too creamy going on like some others. Will only buy this product
just a name from ulta
i mean, it isn't the worst nor the best. you get what you paid for. definitely not better than anastasia's though.
Kim from shoreline
This brow pencil is one of the best I've tried. It makes individual hairs look really good and if you mess up it's easy to correct.
I've bought this multiple times

I have sparce, thin brows from overplucking. I like the NYX Micro Brow pencil because I finally found a color that works for me (ash brown). It has a thin point that isn't too soft and waxy and isn't too siff to apply. The brush is very convenient and is a good, useful brush. The pencil is easy to use, doesn't smear and lasts all day. Also, the price is good.

This is my go to eye brow filler! So easy to apply!
Anna from Detroit
Before I tried this pencil, I was using ABH. To me this is basically the same thing, just cheaper. Glides on without a problem and it's a great formula. I did try a shade lighter than what I usually get but that's ok. Overall it's a great product and definitely a dupe for the ABH pencil
Mari from Minnesota
The formula is too dry for an accurate application, felt like I was drawing on my face. The auburn shade looks like a orange foundation stuck in my eyebrows. I still gave 3 stars because the spoolie brush is nicely made and the packaging doesn't feel cheap, the lids firmly attach, and the mechanics work well. Also always appreciated when there isn't a fragrance.
Morgan from Fort smith
I really like the pencil & the formula. I took a star off due to the color being too warm for me. I got it in taupe which is normally more grey toned but the taupe in this pencil is quite reddish on me. Will def be getting a more suitable color because I really love this pencil!
Holy grail for brows
Mimi from USA
This + their brow gel is the only thing I've used for my eyebrows for YEARS. Nothing else does my brows justice plus the price is super affordable. Love love it
Better than ABH
Nat from Mission Hills, CA
I needed something cheaper than the ABH pencil and this is an awesome dupe.
Deej from Charleston wv

Formula too dry. Had to use lots of pressure to go on. Don't like color.
kdserenity from AZ
Seriously my favorite eye brow pencils ever. I live them and use daily.
Not a fan.
Judy from Crosby, Tx
I don't know if it's the color but I'm not a fan of it. I don't like the texture of it. It barely marks my brow & have to go over it quite a bit. I dont like the brush on the other end either. I've had better brow pencils.
Mia from Co
When I don't want to spend for the prestige brands I ALWAYS go for this eye brow pencils. I like to switch between expresso and chocolate depending on my hair color! Love it.
Just as good if not better than Anastasia
Laserrell from Santa Maria,Ca
I love the NYX better than Anastasia Beverly Hills brow which has been my hg for years!!! This slides on from the moment you open it up. Fabulous!!! My new hg
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 !!
