I'm on my second Brow Fantasy because it is the best and cheapest product for my brows. I get it in Dark Brown and the pencil does a great job of filling in my brows so that my face has more structure. While most brown brow pencils tend to look too reddish, I think this looks much better on me compared to the rest of the drugstore alternatives. I find that using both the gel and the pencil can wind up looking a bit too heavy so I usually just stick to the pencil part. Unfortunately, that part is so short that when I get close to the end, I yank it out and sharpen it with a knife because it's too small for the pencil sharpener. Other than that and the fact that the pencil cap is a bit shabby, I think that this is a great drugstore choice.
I really like the versatility and travel-worthiness of this product. It is natural looking when on - but the cap, oh the cap! It is way too loose.
I have been having a hard time finding it again, else I'd repurchase it!
i dont normaly fill in my eyebrows but i started recently and i really like this product.. i have it in dark brown and it doesnt look fake or like i have anything on my eyebrows
This is a GREAT brow product! I love that there is both a pencil and a gel (mascara-style wand.) This makes this totally economical -but more importantly it works. The only reason I didn't give it 5 lippies, is that my first one...the lid to the pencil isn't securely on there. it slips off easily and when traveling this is a problem. I've had to tape it on there. So beware. I'm hoping it was a fluke, because I did buy a 2nd. I think this product is worth it.
P.S. - i have a stubborn gray hair right at my forehead cowlick and I can use this to cover it if necessary. Bonus!
Nice product. I bought it in Brunette even though my brows are dark brown, but the slightly reddish brown of the brunette helps to blend my eyebrows better with my reddish tone in my dark brown hair. I have full brows with a nice shape so the pencil is used just to fill a few thinner areas. I actually like the gel part the the best. At first it does come out a little glumpy when you first buy it, but after a few days of wiping it first on a tissue, the product will come out with the right amount. Keeps everything in place and doesnt smear.
This is the best brow pencil/gel combo! The color Dark Blonde is so natural looking, not too gold/red, not too ashy, for both the pencil and the gel (the gel is pretty sheer). I keep my brows pretty natural as far as shaping(no waxing/plucking), since I have really great full and arched brows. However, sometimes I need something to tame them and keep them in place, and also I have a scar in one of my brows, and with this product you can't even tell, it makes them both look perfect! People always compliment me on my perfect brows, and ask me where I get them "done"... I just tell em they're natural ;-)
I've been using this product for about a month now (color-Dk blonde) and I don't think the pencil end is bad, but I feel the gel looks really fake and I won't use it. No redness in the color which is good, but it goes on a little thick and I probably won't buy again.
I generally prefer to fill my brows with powder/shadow because pencils can look harsh without the right, feather stroke application... but this pencil is perfection. I only use it on the the tail end of my brow, but it still outperforms other pencils for that short, last bit of brow. My only gripe is the attached gel. I didn't find it to be too long lasting and the tinting color didn't look very natural on me - hence the four lippies. My HG finishing brow gel is from Bare Escentuals. From now on, I'll be looking for the plain pencil version of this to save on cost.
I had misplaced my usual AVON Luxury Brow Pencil, so I picked this up this in BLONDE at WalMart. Some brow pencils look totally fake on me, but this one looked perfectly natural. Even though my brows are a darker brown,I was able to blend this, and when I was finished, the fill-in I had done was non-detectable. I do like the gel on the other side of the pencil, however, when I apply it, LOTS of the gel comes off onto my brows, and I have to remove some of the gel with a tissue, and that is kind of a waste, but that is the only fault I have with it. If they could somehow re-design the brush inside of the gel so it wouldn't grab so much product, this would be the best brow-grooming tool on the market. But, still, Overall, this is a wonderful product and I will for sure be purchasing it again!
I love this product!
I have sparse Asian eyebrows that tend to be kinda unruly and unkepmt when left to it's own devices and to top it off, they are seriously overplucked. I've never really used brow products before because I didn't think they would work for me (brow gels, etc.) since my eyebrow hairs never wanted to be "swept upwards" the way all the magazines say they need to be!
But I got Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown and it's perfect for me. It's a rich brown color, not reddish like some other products and is perfectly compatible with my skin tone and colorings (I have dark brow/black hair).
The pencil is great, easy to remove if you make a mistake yet smooth enough to just glide on. The brow gel helps to groom brows slightly and works better on the longer hairs, but doesn't do much for the shorter brow hairs.
Overall, would definitely repurchase!
