After having bought many different brow products over time, most of which were fairly expensive, I believe I've finally found a real keeper! The name on my "Perfect" Brow Pencil is Soft Brown, maybe a newer or older name than Ultimate Brown, I don't know. Whatever the name, it's excellent, and doesn't seem to have any red hue to it. It looks totally natural, has just the right consistency, not too soft and not too hard. And the best part, it stays on all day long! The only negative is that it's quite expensive, but it looks like it will last a very long time, so maybe it's worth the price in the long run.
Goes on very nicely and is easy to be precise with a pencil. Will buy again because it lasts all day for me and nothing rubs it off yet it's easy to remove when I wash my face.
Great pencil, stays on all day and doesn't smear because of my oily skin. This color just wasn't the right color for my black brows and it has a yellowish cast to it. Got Brunette instead.
Best brow product I've ever used! I freaked out when I discovered my Sephora wasn't going to carry my beloved Too Faced Brow-nie, which was the only brow product that ever worked for me. The salesperson gave me this pencil to try and I am in love! I have dark blonde brows and dye my hair dark brown so I have to color them in or I look strange. Most blonde shades are too ashy, but all the browns I've tried are way too dark. This is perfect! It's a golden brown that is rich without being too dark or muddy. The formula is wonderful and fills in any sparse areas perfectly. The spoolie on the end makes doing my brows a snap. This pencil makes my brows look natural and defined, and wears all day. Love it!
This pencil is very hard and dry, which is what makes it so great. Creates very precise, natural, smudge-proof lines that are not too saturated. Softer pencils tend to apply too much greasy color, making them look fake and drawn-on....like a crayon. If you've applied alot of powder, or it's very cold sometimes they can tug at the skin a bit, but I'm sure you could warm them up somehow. It's never been a real problem for me.
Texture is terrible! Very waxy and very hard to apply. Very disappointed, but I found Lancome's brow pencil, I love it!
I've been using this pencil for almost 8 years. I love it! Of all the pencils that I use (being a make up artist, I use alot!) this is one of the top 5. It goes on so smooth and easy. I've had been to the studio several times and always walk out with this purchase. Was so happy when they started getting picked up by more and more distributors!
My only complaint is the texture...because I'm used to a harder consistancy (I use Shu Uemura Hard 9). But the color of this pencil is fantastic. Not too brown, dark, light, red or grey. I recently colored my dark hair to a light brown and it looks very natural (I use the Brunette brow gel over it). Fantastic.
Already gone through 2! Color perfectly matches my eyebrows! Love how it doesn't fade or get smeared easily.
This hard, waxy pencil is perfect for precision work and creating the most natural-looking brows but the closest match, Ultimate Brown, was too warm for my skintone. I need an ashy brown color, which blends in better with my skintone and brows. Ultimate Brown is a dark golden brown--not good. The search continues.
