Very pleased with this product. It is the first time I've used anything to fill in my brows and this is easy to use and blends in well. I also like the brush at the end to groom brows and blend in the color. Would recommend to others.
Using this the Easybrow has made my makeup application faster and easier, especially if and when I'm running late! I usually use Benefit's Brow Zings but I've gotten lazy and hate washing the brush since it clumps up in 2-3 days. With the Easybrow, I'm able to do my brows as easily and defined as I do when using Brow Zings, except in a less amount of time. The spoolie at the end of the pencil is also a nice and convenient touch. I have two of these pens so far--one in my purse in case I need to touch up my brows and one at home.
The good, you get tons of product compared to similar products-.01 oz. In Maybelline define a brow you get .001 oz and MAC .003. At $5 you really can't beat that. I love the spoolie, I think all brow pencils should have one on the end.
The not so good, I wish it was narrower in diameter. It's hard to get a very fine line on the outer half of my brow. It's a little powdery and too soft which makes it harder to get a narrow line so the outer half of my brow tends to look smudgy. I have the color natural taupe and it's a little too warm toned. I can pull it off but I'm a red head. I think it would look a little weird on most people. Normally I wouldn't take points off the rating for color, except there are only 2 colors. They really need to make a more universal color. Overall, I would skip this one.
I bought this eyebrow twistable in Taupe. This is also the first eyebrow pencil i've ever bought. It was decent but i've always hated twistables no matter what. I still hate them. I was able to use this product for probably a month;daily until it jammed. For like $7, not really that great. I love everything. The packaging, the color, the product, the brush. I just can't believe it jammed like that.
HG eyebrow product!
There are certain periods of time where I return to my ELF brow powder but then I start using this again and realize how convenient and fast it is to use this. I'm naturally really lazy so I appreciate the mechanical tip of the pencil. I love how this eyebrow pencil is all wax-y because my brows stay on all day, as opposed to when I use powder. I'm on my second pencil and I absolutely love it.
The only con was that I was surprised how quickly I finished my first pencil. I finished mine in about 2 months and thought it'd last a little longer, but all in all, still worth it.
I love the color of the eyebrow pencil and the fact that it has a brow brush and is mechanical. I always hate sharpening makeup pencils. I think I literally used it twice before the mechanical part stopped working or it just ran out. Either way I keep it for the brush part but that's about it - will not repurchase. Maybe I just got a bunk mechanical part? either way I think from now on I'll stick to regular makeup pencils, they seem more reliable and less likely to break.
I am so very impressed with this product. I was first introduced to Milani brow products when emilynoel83 on YT had her mom talk about her favorite brow product, and although this is not the product her mom raved about, I decided to look into other Milani brow products because I don't like brow tinting pens (which is what her mom loves). This product is amazing for me. It very hard for me to find a pencil that looks natural. I usually end up choosing powder products and even finding a color match for me is a challenge. I am a natural redhead with very blond brows and lashes. If I choose a shade that's too warm, my brows look too red which looks ridiculous, and if it's too cool, it also looks unnatural. I bought this in the taupe shade (can't remember the number, maybe 002 or 003, but I think it's the lightest they make). It glides on like a dream, and at first it will look like too much product is being applied, but the spoolie on the other end blends the product like a dream. There are no streaks after you blend the product and it stays put without having to use a separate gel/wax/powder. Another reason why I love this is because it is MECHANICAL!!! You can roll it up and down. The tip never gets too "big", if that makes sense. It is perfect for me. It lasts through an entire workday until I take it off at night. I'm a dental assistant and work around a lot of steam from the autoclave, and this doesn't budge. I'm so happy I did some research and found this. This is my HG brow product now and will purchase back ups because it is very reasonably priced. Love it!!
***EDIT***...the shade I use is 03 Natural Taupe
I deleted my review and I'm writing a new one. I like the packaging on this except for the fact that since it's a twist up that means the pencil doesn't fully stay sharp. I've tried working with this but it just doesn't give me the look I'm going for. I want something natural that doesn't scream "HEY GUYS LOOK AT THIS LADY!!!! SHE JUST DREW IN HER EYEBROWS!"
I may be impossible to please but there's gotta be something close out there!
I first bought this in the taupe color but it was a shade or 2 too light...so I exchanged it for the dark brown color - and it's PERFECT.
It's a pencil but goes on finer and in more detail than most pencils - almost like a cream/powder...and then INSTANTLY dries to a pencil finish. Because of this, it goes on a LOT smoother, more velvety than hard pencils.
Great staying power.
No strange undertones.
No sharpener needed (just turn the bottom) - HUGE plus for this feature!
Comes with a nice little brush attached to the opposite end - another HUGE plus.
Can't beat the price for the quality of it.
Definitely recommend this product!
Dark brown is quite dark, no red undertones, which is awesome for me, and I like the spoolie on the end. The fact that its retractable is also nice, but so is maybelline's brow pencil, which I like much more--it has a harder texture than milani, and is easier to use. The milani is way too soft, so it applies in very unnatural looking globs. Not an awful product, but I wouldn't repurchase it and would definitely not recommend it.
