Sadly, I am changing my prior review of this. I had commented, & still believe that the pencil end is not enough product, for someone such as myself, in her late 50's with sparse brows that are so light that they can't be seen at all, without help. That said, the pencil is just too thick & a tad too dark for me. I do not look good with thick brows. For many, this would be a wonderful product, as you can see by prior reviews. Just not for me! continued >>
If you have white blonde brows like me, then this is a good product to try! Mine are almost non-existent. With a light hand, this pencil can make the brows look defined, yet natural. I don't really use the gel because I don't like the texture of it in my brows. Mine are sparse to begin with, so they don't move. You can find this pencil pretty cheap on Amazon too. Will def repurchase.
I purchased the Revlon brow fantasy in dark blonde after searching for a brow gel that would tint my very dark almost black eyebrows to match my new light brown hair with blonde highlights. I don't care much for the black eyebrow- blonde hair look obviously. Anyway, I had planned to buy the Mac brow set in girl boy, which is a blonde brow gel, but stumbled across the Revlon brow gel at my local Walmart. In comparison to the Mac brow set this was around 10 dollars cheaper, but has a lot less product. I got home and used the brow pencil to fill in my brows, so as you can imagine I had black brows with obvious light blonde pencil marks from the Revlon brow pencil. (That was not a good look). Then, I went on to apply the tinted brow gel. I really piled that gel on to make sure there was no black brow hairs showing and to my surprise I really liked the finish look! It lightened my eyebrows to a dark blonde- medium brown color and looked very natural. It stayed on all day no problems. My eyebrows were soft to the touch. The only con I could find was that the amount of product they give you is ridiculous. The brow pencil is less than 2 inches long and I can't see myself getting to many uses before I run out. Besides that, It is a good product.
Love this color. I have found myself repurchasig this product over and over. it is something I always come back to. I enjoy the staying power and the color its perfect for my light eyebrows. I do not use the step 2 gel at really, but it does hold my brows in place.
I purchased this product after seeing some very good YouTube reviews about it. I had been using another drugstore brand (Maybelline, I think) blonde eyebrow pencil and had always topped it with clear mascara. The first time I tried it, I freaked out at the color of the "dark" blonde. To me, it looked very, very reddish. (I apply my makeup in natural sunlight most days or a lighted make-up mirror if that is not possible.) So I removed the pencil part from my eyebrow, used my old trusty blonde pencil and went ahead and topped it with the tinted gel in the Revlon product. I liked the tinted gel very much--it doesn't dispense too much product on the spoolie and it blended right in without me having to work with it hardly at all.
A couple days later I decided to give the pencil part another shot and I sharpened it to get the freshest color possible. Again, I thought it looked more red than dark blonde, but I went ahead and used the tinted gel over it and went on with my day. Whenever I would glance in a mirror, I was happy to find that my brows did not come across as reddish. But it still kinda worries me when I first apply it because it just looks more red than dark blonde. Some days I use my other brand of blonde pencil and use the Revlon gel over it.
I probably will buy this product again, because I really do like the tinted brow gel portion of it. Whether I use the Revlon pencil end or my other brow pencil, I do feel that the tinted gel holds up much longer than clear mascara or brow gel.
For me, this is a HG brow product- A blonde that isn't too brassy or ashy. A pencil that isn't too creamy or crumbly. It fills in sparse spots and grooms/sets without being obviously "done".
Wow, finally a product that lines & sets! I have medium brown brows & I use the dark blonde shade which is perfect for me cuz I don't like my brows to show that I've filled them in. Most of the time, darker shades look obviously drawn on & the lighter shades are too light but I got super lucky with this one! I actually got it after watching Makeupbytiffanyd's youtube video on her favorites & dang she was right! =) My brows have never looked so good! =) continued >>
I really, really like this. I'm a redhead with invisible brows and lashes. I need something to enhance my brows without making me look like a hairy wolf man. I used to use Anastasia Strawburn powder and pencil, but found they looked too red, even though my hair is red. I like the color of this pencil. It gives just enough color and doesn't look fake. The gel is a very light brown color that doesn't do anything in the way of color for me, it just sets the brows. I like that the two products are together. I would recommend this to anyone wanting just to define the brows and give them a little color. I'll repurchase.
I always skipped defining my eyebrows out of sheer laziness. I only began defining them about a year ago after I heard someone say the brows are like a pretty picture frame for a pretty picture. That made a lot of sense to me. Since then I've played with powder and pencil liners, and this is my favorite. The color is perfect for my shade of blonde hair. The texture is great and the gel on the other end is perfect for coming unruly brows in place. I appreciate that it is cheap and easy to use. A light hand is all that is needed, don't press! Nice feathery strokes will help you define a polished and natural looking brow.
This is by far the BEST brow pencil in the world. I am so impressed with this product. The pencil goes on smooth and blends well and I love the gel that comes with it at the other end of the pencil that has the mascara brush to apply it. I have several highend brow pencils, gels, and brow e/s powder and this is my HG out of all of them. It matches my NC20-25 skin and highlighted blonde hair perfectly. It applies flawlessly giving my thin brows shape and definition and helps to keep them in place. What a great gem to find in a drugstore for such a fabulous low price. I would highly recommend this! Revlon Brow Fantasy, I wish I had discovered you sooner!
