Most Helpful Positive Review This is by far the BEST e
This is by far the BEST eyebrow applicator I've ever used! I used Fling and it matched PERFECTLY! I have naturally thin eyebrows so this was perfect for applying an accurate thin shape towards the end of my brows. Highly recommend and didn't smudge one bit while running around working!
Most Helpful Critical Review frustrating!
This is a strange product. I purchased the shade in Taupe took it home and hated it. Like many other reviews the powder side is just fine--pigmented and blends nicely. It's the pen side that is difficult to work with--the color when it first comes out is so sheer! You have to go over the same area in your brows over and over to get any color payoff at all which defeats the purpose of being able to make hair like strokes. I went in store thinking maybe I got too light of a shade and swatched the display ones--they were SO MUCH MORE pigmented! I showed the sales lady mine and asked if maybe I had just gotten a bad one. She agreed and told me to just exchange it-- I noted the displays were sitting upright with the pen side down--I even asked the sales lady maybe thats why mine wasn't working because I didn't store it pen side down. She told me that shouldn't matter because customers come in all the time and play with them and they get put back which ever way all the time. So I exchanged my pen for a new one--took it home and it is the SAME! I'm going to store it pen side down tonight to see if maybe that does in fact make a difference but honestly if you go to travel with this product you won't be able to store it upside down like that. I'm beginning to think this may not be worth the trouble...

Love this brow pencil! It gives realistic hairs vibes with each stroke. I even came back and ordered two more.
Really helps thin brows!

Easy to use, helps thin skinny brows look fuller.
My staple product
FC ARTISTRY from Napa,CA
As a makeup artist I have used a couple brow products and had my fair share of textures and what I find works best with who. This is one of my favorite products to have in my kit if I'm ever looking to make a brow from natural to dramatic. The wax on one end allows to shade in any parts of the brows that struggle to take color while the felt tip brush let's me draw in the desired shape. Also, they are very smudge resistant and they last a long time ! Great product
It was great until it wasn't
Dee from Miami
So the first time I bought this. I was HOOKED. It was amazing!!! I have now purchased 6, (all in July) and have had to return all of them. Like other reviewers have stated it is hit or miss with the batch. The past 6 I have purchased DONT do the hair strokes, it seems to be very faint and also when you try to the strokes on the brows it doesn't come out like it should. It'll come out almost watered down if it even comes out. There is definitely something wrong with this batch. I'm so sad because the first one I bought was so AMAZING, so much so that 5 months later I am still using it with such amazing precision hair strokes, but unlike before when I was using it every day now I only use it for special ocasions😭 because I don't know if MAC will ever have another good batch. Please fix this MAC so we can all go back to loving it again
Best brow product I have used
Amanda from South Carolina
If you have sparse or light-colored brow hair like me, this product is perfect. Yes, the pen goes on very light, which is what you want so you don't want a heavy, fake drawn-on look. You are creating a natural-looking shadow beneath your brow hairs, one stroke at a time. Then you go over it with the powder to set. I purchased the color Taupe and it is the perfect darkness and shade for me.
LH from Florida
I really liked the first one I bought. I bought another one a couple of months ago and finally opened it to use it. The color payoff is completely different. It's so light compared to the first one I purchased. I understand different batches will look slightly different, but it looked like two completely different colors. Pretty disappointed.
Cuts my brow routine down to two items
Meg from Tucson, AZ
While I used to use a micro-pencil, powder and tinted gel, I can get away with only using this product (sometimes I use soap or a clear gel for a special occasion). The powder side is surprisingly great! It almost gives a dry shampoo effect to my brows, giving volume and hold due to its slight waxy texture. The pen side is very nice but it does lose steam if you draw over other makeup such as foundation that hasn't been set. To get around that issue I do my brows before anything else and the pen keeps juiced during application. I use Stud and find it leans almost grey, similar to Granite from ABH.
Too transparent/not enough pigment
Mia from Utah
So disappointed in this product.Very light grey tint. Doesn't look natural on brows. Bleeds slightly making lines look very unlike hairs. Would not recommend.
Teasa B. from Inver Grove Heights, MN
I bought this product after watching a YouTube influencer demo she was right this is a great product, you can go as light or dark as you want depending on how much pressure you use with each stroke. My new favorite brow pencil.
Brow goto for a while now
SAM from bend oregon
The only reason this isn't 5 stars is because a pencil or even spooling at the other end would be better than the powder in my opinion. Otherwise it's the best brow product I've used
DI from Michigan
By far the best brow pencil I've found! I've been looking for a liquid point like this one since the one I've been using, with another brand, was discontinued! The filler end was definitely a bonus. I prefer this brush tip with my blonde hair so my brows look more natural and less chalky and thick! This is the one product I don't go without!
Sky from Orange, ca
Love this product!!!
The color is nothing like it says.
Linda from New Jersey
I wasted my money ordering medium brown and it's like a dark blonde. I wouldn't even consider it a brown.
Not the same
SoFlo from Florida
I've used this for a couple years, but the last one I bought was not visible when I tried to apply it and a week later it completely dried up. Don't know what happened to such a great product.

This color was too dark for me, I passed it onto a friend.
Shade & Brow Tint
Stonee from Hartford CT
Once it's safe to go outside I'm going to to MAC & see if they can show me some techniques with it. Other then that I Absolutely hate this product, would not recommend.
Shake from NYC
Just tried this new brow pencil and this is so much better than the Eyebrow styler pencil (color stud). Since they changed the old Stud pencil, this is a better option. The color tint powder goes on very dark (love!) and the liquid tip helps to get the end of your eyebrows perfect. Also the color does not fade and stays on all day. Highly recommend.
Love this brow pen!
Mo from Orange County, CA
This is the best brow pen that I've found! I use it to create a natural, bushy brow effect. I follow it with Benefit's Gimme Brow and I really love the full brow look it gives. I'm taking off one star because I don't use or like the powder or applicator that's on the other side of the pen (it's a bulbous sponge tip applicator that gives no precision) and I seem to have to repurchase the pen quite often. But the pen is so good I'll continue to repurchase!
Always read the reviews
Layla from NJ
Oh, if I had only read the reviews, I would not have ordered the brow tint. Originally, At a Mac counter, the salesperson suggested the color Spiked... applied at home, the color was much too dark, but I was able to draw fine hair like lines. Back to the Mac counter and purchased Taupe...perfect color and able to draw nice, fine, brow lines.
I ordered Cork on line as I recently added some red to my hair color. Now, I am encountering what the negative reviews on this product wrote repeatedly...hardly any color appears when applied... and it is impossible to draw the fine lines...pressing harder creates a blurred look. Really disappointed...the product does not do what it is suppose to.
Fling, for thin grey brows
MustangSally from GA
This is very easy to use. I was once blonde & don't want a stark contrast for now grey brows & Fling is perfect. The powder & brush ends are great. I had my brows done quickly the first time. Very please with application & results.
Possibly my HG brow product
Rebelle from Fargo, ND
This has been one of my favorites since discovering brow markers. I like how I can make hairlike strokes, but can also fill in larger areas. I have gone through 3-4 of these markers because I feel they don't last as long as a regular pencil. I hardly use the powder end, but when I do it's for more coverage of my sparse brows.
Perfect for redheads or to make fake freckles
Kate from Louisville KY
I use this to make fake freckles and the warm, slightly red color is PERFECT to get the effortlessly cool, just back from the beach, freckles without looking like a cartoon. It is sheer, but that what makes it so perfect.
Cori from Michigan
The first time I used this product it gave me the most natural microbladed amazing brow. I loved it so much, and as soon as I ran out I went to grab another one. The second one was sheer and liquidy. It did not make thin strokes like it originally did and the strokes I made would spread across my face and look messy. Please bring back the original product!
