i've been looking for the ideal brow pencil to fill in my brows and because i've been liking the thicker brows look. i came across this pencil in target for $8.49 i believe. i use the shade dark brown. i'm not fond of the pencil itself much because if i try to use soft strokes on my brows, the pencil doesn't come out well enough so i have to apply a bit more pressure thus i dont feel as though i have enough control. however, the gel that comes on the other side is phenomenal. it finishes off the brows without giving it a harsh look and the brush works really well cleaning up my brows.
Love it! My sister has been using brow pencils for quite some time. She let me try heres in Dark Brown, and I loved it! I have thick brows that I keep arched. The brow pencil adds that bit of polish that I've been looking for. My eyebrows can get a little unruly too. The gel corrects this problem.
This is my HG brow pencil/gel. I love this stuff. It fills my brows without looking unnatural, and the gel keeps them in place without flaking. (Note: I do use a brow brush to soften up the colour after application, but it's not always a necessary step.) I have naturally black hair and was worried that the dark brown wouldn't be dark enough, but it was just right. :) My only complaint about this product is the cheap packaging! The plastic cap on the pencil end cracked within the first few days, despite the fact that I have never thrown it into my bag or been rough with it. Now the cap falls off really easily, which can be irritating. Other than that, I love this brow pencil and will definitely buy it again.
I like this product, but I only use the gel side because I find that the pencil is too harsh for my already dark eyebrows and that the tint from the gel is enough to define my brows. The gel tends to wear off after a long day, but for normal ones it is ok. I don't notice any flaking, so I guess it just fades somehow. The lid to the pencil side also isn't too well designed as it tends to fall off.
I have this in Dark Brown. My brows are black, but I figured black would be too obvious.
This is a great eyebrow filler. The pencil offers just enough colour without looking too obvious a pencil line, and the brow gel completes the look by evening out the pencil with the brows.
This is an awful brow product. First of all the cap doesn't stay on the pencil end and now I have eyebrown pencil all over the inside of my makeup bag. The color looked fairly natural but by the end of the day got dusty looking almost making it look like my eyebrows had dandruff!! The gel part was terrible too- it would turn a greyish white and flake off by the end of the work day!
Good brow pencil & gel. I used it when I had dyed my hair to be a light brown and I dyed my eyebrows too, which turned them from black to barely there. The pencil definately makes the brows noticeable and defined and the gel groomed all the strays and helps make the whole thing look natural. The packaging sucks because the cap cracked easily and I had no cap on the pencil which is annoying but the product itself is great. For eyebrow pencils I would usually try to wipe the product off into an angled brush and then apply it onto my eyebrows, which does look more natural for me but with this pencil, maybe it has to do with the lighter shade, but I don't really have to do that.
I recently went back to using this product again but this time in a dark chestnut brown. Before this I was using a dark brown Revlon eyeshadow which worked okay but didn't look very natural. The shadow pretty much looked like a color block on my skin and you can see what is drawn on and what is actual brow hairs. I started using this pencil again and I would draw light short strokes to fill in and I would intentionally do it darker than I want. The pencil is very soft and gives off color easily. I would go over it with a brow groomer brush to lighten the color and the bristles in the groomer combs the waxy pencil into a much more natural outcome than using just eye shadow. Going over it with the gel is the icing on the cake because my natural brows are black and the gel tints the hairs to a brown and keeps the hairs more in place the result from doing this is pretty natural and very good for a drugstore product.
I am on my second tube of this, and I am loving it so far. It is really hard to find a good blonde color. I really like the way this glides on and blends into the hairs. My only beef is the gel color, I wish they would have just left it clear, also the length of the pencil side, there is just not much product for the price. If Revlon would address the above stated problems, this for me would be the perfect eyebrow pencil.
I like this eyebrow pencil. So far this is the best drug-store eye-brow pencil that I've tried (trust me, I've tried lots of them). I purchased dark brown which is a blackish brown shade and the darkest brown they have. I always have trouble buying eye-brown pencils because either the browns were too light or they had red in it. It's a soft and not extremely waxy pencil which makes touching up my brows easy. The cap for the pencil breaks easily as commented by and earlier reviewer. I don't care much for the eye-brow gel although it does make my brows look a little more groomed.
i didn't care for this product. the plastic cover for the pencil split which is a pet peeve for me. the gel looks fake and the pencil gets dirty
