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 5255 customers My fave eyebrow product EVER
Fave from San Jose
Make sure when you apply your eyebrows don't have oil they should be dry no product in them whatsoever or else they'll just slide off !! But this is my fave eyebrow product ever!! I've literally tried every brand and product and i always come back to this pencil
I've tried every product and go back to this every time!!!
Vanessa from New York
I've tried every single eyebrow pencil on the market, from $40 products to "most reviewed", and always end up with better results from the NYX Micro Brow Pencil !!!
Great brow pencil
Rhianna from Norman, OK
I used to use the Anastasia brow definer. I tried this one on a whim bc it's about half the price of ABH. I've used it ever since. It's great! It gets the job done, stays put but also blends well when I brush through my brows. It also lasts me for months. 10/10 recommend!
Maddie4 from Wisconsin
It looks very nice for just filling in your eyebrows
This is the best pencil EVER
Sue from Chicago,IL

capricornlady from Indiana
I love this brow pencil! I'll go buy several so I dont run out. soft and smooth application!
Go-to pencil but far from perfect
A Lady and her Brows from Mississippi
This is my go-to product mainly because of access, it can be purchased at a lot of stores. However, it's not perfect. It definitely smudges and won't last long on oily skin.
Susi from Mi
Love it for outlining my sparse brows!!! Nothing has done as well and lasted as long.
This is my favorite brow pencil for a great price
Rye bread from Dubuque, IA
I love everything about this product. But the only downside is how much product comes in the pencil
I love it!
Liz from Blanchard
I got this when my morphe brow pencil ran out, I was surprised when I found I actually like this MORE than my old one. Definitely recommend it
Simplynae from New York
I love this pencil when my eyebrows are growing back it's a great full in. Price is decent and it does the job. Only issue is it breaks too easily
Thin strokes, long wearing, quick application
Nurse M from Beaumont, TX
I'm a nurse, so I wear this stuff for 14+ hours and it always looks good when I get home from work! It also applies really quickly. This pencil is nice for shaping your brows and filling them in. I am dirty blonde with blonde highlights and the color "taupe" is perfect for me. The strokes are pretty thin, but they aren't thin enough to be "hair-like", at least for me. But that could be that I'm just not a skilled makeup artist. That being said, I do get compliments on my brows, so I think that speaks more to the product than my skills! You won't be disappointed if you buy this!
My favorite brow pencil, honestly I wouldn't live without it
Alanna from Lawrence, MA
I can't say anything bad about the product because for my is a great product.
This eyebrow pencil is the perfect shade for me. Awesome!
Christine A. from Colorado Springs, Co
I'm repairing a bad permanent color on my brows. This pencil covers the bad color beautifully.
I would not buy this product again
? from TN
worth it for the most part.
Nichelle from AK
I'm very beginner level with my brows and heard this was a dupe for ABH so I went for it. it does do a good job at making my brows fill in nicely and full but it's not a HG item. Definitely worth it but again, if you miss any part of blending it out you can tell so I pair it with my benefits brow gel and they work great together. I will buy it again if I don't hear of another HG item but this was supposed to be an HG item that I hears about but I also have really nice shaped eye brows naturally so lining them out and filling is a pain because if I don't do it right it looks off as my brows are already very pretty by themselves.
Get this not the expensive stuff
Lids from Flo Rida
I've tried many a drug store eyebrow pencils and tints and stuff. This and the Joah one are my fave, and i have even begun to like this better. It glides on and is pigmented but not too pigmented to allow for a more natural look.
sincerely, confused from United States
I have used this product before and typically love it; however, this time when I twisted my product out I noticed a white film covering the brow product... what happened? Unfortunately, I will be returning.
First creamy brow pencil that I've loved
BC from Central Indiana
I've been looking for a soft, precise brow pencil. This does the job!
Shades a little off but otherwise worth it
Lulu from US
I've been looking for an inexpensive brow pencil that has been rated as good as more luxury brands. NYX of course came up in my search.
I wasn't sure which shade to get because the eyebrow models are never people with natural brows that aren't dark. I have light auburn (reddish brown) hair but my eyebrows are lighter than my hair, like a dark blonde. I decided to buy shades "taupe" and "auburn".
I'm quite impressed with the quality and longevity of this product. It also goes on smooth and is effortless to fill in brows.
My only issue is with the shades.
The auburn one I think should be call "natural red" because that's what it looks like, so too bright orange/red and too light. It's not auburn. But, if you are a true red head, then this is for you. If you have auburn hair though, well you'll need to mix with a brown shade pencil.
The taupe looks like it would be cool toned but it's not, which worked out for me. It is a light reddish-brown. Honestly, I can use this on it's own without the auburn shade that's how red tint the taupe is (which isn't actually taupe then). If you need that cool mousy blonde/brown shade, taupe isn't it.
Other than the shades being off, this is a great product for those who don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a brow pencil.
Perfect dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills' brow wiz!
V from Atlanta, GA
Ok, look: I'm an Asian girl with sparse eyebrows. Brows are a non-negotiable part of my makeup routine because, without them, my face doesn't appear to be framed. I'm also not okay with spending copious amounts of money on makeup products so this was an incredible find. The micro-brow pencil (in the shade expresso) looks very natural and is easy to apply. The expresso shade has a bit of a reddish undertone; I would have preferred a dark, ash-brown shade, but this will do for the time being. Lastly, I wish there were more product in the pencil. It only lasted a few months for me with near-daily application.
Love this stuff
Sara from Home
The best brow product I've used! Works great and is super affordable. I've been purchasing this for 3 years now and haven't found anything better.
Golden blonde approved
Ruby O. from South Florida
As a blonde with absolutely no real eyebrows, it's quite hard to do a eyebrow pencil without a ash/dark undertones. This however comes out as golden/light brown undertones. Loveee it!
Loyal to this Product
Alex from Maryland
I have thick, full brows but they transform when I wear this. I have friends who I recommended this to that have moderate or sparse eyebrows and they LOVE it just as much as me. I always buy this specific one. I'd say this one is better than the other NYX brow products. It is precise, long lasting, and has plenty of product.
I have used ABH brow pencil products, which is good btw, various of time and I'd still choose the Micro Brow Pencil. They're so similar, not exact I admit, and this is so much more affordable that I sway more to this. Though similarities are baffling, this formula can get chalky and brittle IF left uncovered for too long. Though I doubt this will rarely happen, it's best to note since many think this will be exactly like the ABH formula. It's similar, not 100%.
Y'all cannot convince me to buy another product. I'd HIGHLY recommend this to you if you're looking for the perfect eyebrow pencil. This is MY #1 Brow Product!
Evi from Oregon
Most eyebrow products for some reason never have a true black product, but this one does!! Perfect for anyone with real dark hair. It stays on all day, I have been using it for years now, it's my go to!
