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 5324 customers Great pencil
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

Already stated too hard
Not a fan
Fondue from Ohio
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 !!
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!
