This is my go-to brow pencil. It's super easy to use with the pencil on one end and brow gel on the other. It doesn't take up much space when I'm traveling and I love Smashbox's Brow Tech! I used to use the Brow Tech and brush but after finding this, I converted to use the Brow Tech to Go which is so much easier and simpler to use.
I'm always looking for fast efficient ways to apply makeup and this is one of those items that can help!
I don't really use pencils as my brows are too thick to let anything enter lol, but my mom introduced me to this and I love it. It's soft and great for defining your brows precisely and easily. And the gel makes sure your brows are in place all day.
After recently buying a tinted brow gel with a huge brush that made it too hard to apply cleanly, I bought this product today at Ulta in Taupe. Of course I don't know yet how long it stays on, but I already like it a lot. The color is excellent, I love the slanted tip which makes it easy to make my skinny brows look thicker, and the very small spoolie at the gel end of the product is excellent. It makes it easier to get my unruly brow hairs to lie down than anything I've bought in the past!
So far so good. This product is expensive (I bought it with a 20% off coupon) but I really like what it does. I'd recommend it to anyone who has struggled with and spent money on many other brow products.
Eh. This is one of the first products I bought in my quest for a sparse brow solution that would last the day. This pen is a great idea in theory, but poorly executed IMO. In the end, I don't think it's worth the hefty Smashbox price tag.
Pros: The small brush that came with the gel. In fact, I liked the brow gel enough that I wanted to purchase it by itself, but Smashbox only makes it as part of its dual eyebrow product (come on, Smashbox...)
Cons: While the brush is great, I've since discovered a better brow gel with better and longer hold. The brunette color matched my brows and the slanted tip made for good application, but the pencil end didn't last through the day and broke off on me several times (to the point where I didn't get to use much of the product).
I've finally settled on what I believe is going to be my long-term brow solution unless I happen to stumble upon something way better: MUFE Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector + Anastasia Brow Gel. The result is brows that last until I use a makeup removing cleanser to wash them off at night.
I'm in a love-hate relationship with this. The packaging makes this super convenient, and the brow gel is some of the best I've used. However the lack of colors really stinks. You can choose between brunette and taupe. I have dark blonde eyebrows, and taupe is still a bit too dark for me. If I'm very light handed using the color, I can get away with using it, but barely. If you have light colored eyebrows, forget it. If they had more of a color rage, it would be an HG for me.
My favorite brow pencil thus far. I have dark almost black brows with a few sparse areas. This pencil blends perfectly with my natural brow hair, and never looks penciled in. I love the angled pencil and that it glides on simply, and lasts all day. The clear gel mascara wand on the other side of the brush helps the blend it to perfection and viola. Great brows!
This is one of the few brow products that I have repurchased. I love it. I used to use the one in the pot and found that great as well. But I am always just in a rush. So this one is perfect. Goes on easy. Stay put. Love the gel side that just finishes off the look. Really nice product. Overall I love Smashbox. I like that you dont need a sharpener for this. The taupe works well for me. Nice product.
Wow! What an amazing product! I love love love this! I have very sparse eyebrows and the shape is always off,so thank Gos for this,i can shape it and fill it and it stays put all day! I use to use a pencil and brow gel in the past but why struglle with a brush when this is so simple to use. I use it in the shade Brunette and i really dont have to press hard for the colur to appear, i guess thats the reason mine never breaks hehe.It would be cool if a drugstore brand came out with a dupe.
I use a variety of brow products, and have always liked Smashbox Brow Tech. It is a bit time-consuming, so I decided to try this, thinking it would be faster and easier.
It's just not as good as the original Brow Tech. I find the pencil too wide to apply color to my rather sparse brows, and the seal doesn't work as well as the wax in the original. I use this sometimes when I'm in a rush, but would not repurchase.
Not a fan. The shade I got was Taupe, but I suspect that the deficiencies of this product extend to all its colours. The wedge-shaped pencil is awful: hard, crumbly and too thick to manoeuver easily. It also breaks very easily. And there's very little of it. In my case it took only a few applications a before it had all broken off, leaving me with only the gel/spoolie part -- which is okay but no better than any of the brow gels you can pick up for much, much less. Overall, overpriced and badly designed.
