I bought my at NEX(navy exchange) for $21 Higher price at ex. Macy and I pick a shade lighter than my hair (light brown) due to prefer natural look that not to harsh if go with my hair color will be Brunet. But I have to buy Lancome sharpener for this pencil due to cheap shapener will damage the tip of this pencil(tip for this pencil). I very like this.
This is by far my favorite brow pencil of all time.
Taupe is the perfect color for my medium brown hair.
It's a powder in a pencil, it stays the entire day.
It's so easy to use & I have mastered how to sharpen it effecrtivly, awhile ago. I use the Sephora pencil sharpener or the MAC, and have no problems at all.
It's pricey, but lasts a very long time. I am sticking with it! continued >>
this is a great brow pencil that blends well. but for the price there are many more available which are as good such as Revlon, Marcelle etc. if you have the money go for it but doesnot perform any better than some cheaper brands.
I'll be comparing this to my Chantecaille brow pencil in blonde that I've had for at least 3 years. The Chante one has no spoolie but is a dryish pencil and the perfect gray brown taupe color and lasts all day on my brows through any kind of stress.
The Lancome one is waxier in texture and the taupe is more brown with a hint of red, not really red but more brown than grey so not a true taupe like the color suggests. This did not last all day on me through a walk in humid hot summer weather--my true test of makeup holding up. (Yes I am picky.) I thought the spoolie on the end would be a great addition but it is super scratchy so not as great as I thought and I still have to reach for my other spoolie to brush out my brows. And the quantity I get in this pencil is not much better than the large pencil for the Chantecaille price so I guess I am just going to have to suck up ordering the Chantecaille one since I get years of wear from that pencil. Maybe I will try the Maybelline define a brow since L'Oreal makes all of Lancome and Maybelline first but that pencil is so small I'm going to have to do some math to see if that works out to be a true bargain.
Where have you been all my life?? I have at least two dozen various brow products in my stash, but nothing's ever been as easy or looked as good as this pencil.
It's a brilliant combination of powder in pencil form, so application is much faster than using brow powder and brush, and more natural looking than brow pencils. I can get both brows done within 30 seconds, and this lasts all day and night.
I wish I'd discovered this a long time ago. It's expensive, but a single pencil lasts a long time. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than the hundreds I've spent on high-end, drugstore, pro and every other kind of brow product.
I have medium skin tone and brunette hair, and the Taupe works well for me.
I have been using this product for many years. I have randomly tried others, only to regret it. Taupe is the perfect color for blondes to light brunettes. It doesn't turn gray on your skin. Sometimes we need to apply a few strokes on bare skin to make the other part of the brow connect. It's miserably true. This brow pencil never looks fake and it blends so easily with a few quick strokes of the brush on the opposite end. I have tried Taupe, Sable, and Brunette. Love them all.
I bought this over a month ago. I saw a YouTube guru using this, and I really liked the way it looked. Since we both have similar hair color and skin tones, I figured it might work for me too.
I usually like to use a brow powder, but when my routine is pressed for time, it's always good to have a pencil around for a quicker application.
It's hard for me to find an eyebrow pencil that isn't too warm. I have dark brown/blackish hair, and when I use eyebrow pencils meant for brunettes, they will often have a reddish or orange undertone to it.
This pencil is not cheap. USD$24, I believe. But fortunately, I found it on eBay for half the price. It's a double-ended pencil. One side has the pencil tip while the other has a spoolie wand. A convenient feature. The pencil almost has a powdery feel to it, so the spoolie is great for both combing brow hairs and blending out the color. Lasting power is pretty good; my brows still looked filled and defined at the end of the day.
This color is a warm ashy taupe. It does have a very slight warm tone to it, but it isn't as obvious as other pencils I've tried. I feel like I can get away with this color much better. Although, I think I would prefer it more if the color was slightly cooler in tone.
The pigmentation is buildable and doesn't apply too dark or harshly, so you don't need to worry about being very light-handed with this. The color is quite soft and the consistency of the pencil makes it look more natural. For the past month, I've been reaching for this a lot.
Still trying to decide whether or not this is HG. The price is the biggest con for me, since I prefer sticking to drug-store prices. But if I can continue to find this on sale, I think I would would repurchase. For you brunette gals looking for a nice not-too-warm or not-too-harsh brow pencil, you may like this one.
The color is perfect for me and my dark brows. I'd been using a dark brown and it was still too harsh. I like the handy brush - heck, ought to get that too for the price.
It is easier by far to apply with a pencil than those tiny brushes.
It's not cheap, but I bet this pencil will outlive me.
So easy to use. A sales associate talked me into getting a shade darker once and it was way too dark for my complexion and looked really unnatural a la Joan Crawford. The taupe was perfect for my light brown brows!
This product was a huge disappointement to me, but that was probably because I'd built up expectations too high before I had even tried it. I really like the idea of the powder in a pencil form, and it really does work. I'm better at applying powder like this than I am with a cake and brush approach.
But now for the bad part. I don't understand why it's so difficult for companies to include a true ash shade in their brow lines. Clinique has one, but it's a little bit dark for me, and the consistency of that brow liner isn't nearly as nice as this one.
My skintone is a warm PPP, but the rest of me is all cool -- cool pinkish cheeks, pale cool blue eyes, and light brown hair without a speck of red in it. Any warmth in my hair (including the brows) comes strictly from yellow; if I didn't know that red pigment is present in every darker hair color I'd never guess there was any in mine.
Both the pouder itself and the packaging looks like it would match me, but somehow both on my face and on my hand it's just too red. Mind you, it's not a very red color, it's just that I have no visible red tones anywhere on my natural body so it sticks out when I wear it.
I don't know, maybe I'll end up gifting it to a friend if it works for any of them. I really wish it worked better for me, because the product aside from the color is really unique and works great.
