This is a great product! I get a very natural looking brow (my brows are thinning at the ends). Just use a very light touch - feathery, short strokes or dots. I find that the gel helps to even out the color and it sets is beautifully. I have used the dark blonde shade every day for about 3 years and won't be without it.
I USED to think that this was a good product. until i tried other brow products.
The packaging looks amazing, with the tinted gel and everything.. but the cap does fall off or break everytime. I purchased about 3 of the same product, and the stupid cap was always really bad.
The one thing that I really didn't like about this product is that it's too obvious. I'm a brow newbie, and this was my first brow product so I had some bad brow days... It's really hard to make it look defined and natural. I can fill in the bald spots of my brow with this and look natural, but I can't seem to use it all over my brow to shape my brow and still look natural. the brow gets really stumpy if I use it all over the brow.
I thought it was my fault, until i tried other products.
It's not a bad product, but i personally wouldn't purchase this again because of my lack of brow-drawing skill and because i like my brow to look really natural.
And this is like 11 or so in CAD, and i'd rather shell out few more bucks for Anastasia brow pencil - which i'm loving right now.
An enthusiastic two thumbs up for this brow pencil. The color stays true and stays put all day, even in humidity. I love the fact too, that the other end has the natural looking, tinted brow gel and comb to keep the stray hairs in place. This is the best brow pencil I have ever used and it is well worth the price tag which isn't much. Awesome brow product!
i have been on my second tube of this one now. the first one lasted me about a fair 4 months. I love that the pencil is not too heavy on the brows, i apply it by dotting the pencil to my brows. It has a better effect that way that drawing a big line to trace the brow. after that, i set it with the gel. it looks frickin gorgeous i love it! and the good thing about it is that you can use the gel alone on your brows to give it just a hint of color. i have a nicely shaped brows, a little on the thick side, which i like, but my problem is that i have BALD SPOTS, on my brows. I juts have missing hairs, for some reason, but this product does the trick, it's well worth it!!
Best brow groomer I've tried, and the price can't be beat. Much quicker than messing around with powder and a brush.
i've been using this product for a few years now and love it. i like how it has the pencil and colored setting gel all-in-one. It holds my brows in shape all day and night.
the only thing i don't like has to do w/the packaging - almost 1/3 of the pencil goes to waste because you can't sharpen it any further due to the plastic holding it in place at the base.(it won't go far enough into the sharpener) I did find a way to get around it a little: pull the pencil out (pull hard) of the holder, sharpen it and put it back in.
I bought this in Brunette and it blended perfectly with my dark brown eyebrows. I would recommend lightly blotting a tissue over your brows after you fill them in, to make it look more natural. Best brow product I have tried, including high end brands. Great product that I would definitely buy again!!!
Since I'm asian, my eyebrows are kind of light so I use this in dark brown and it looks really natural if I don't apply too much. The pencil and the gel are both great but the packaging definitely sucks. The pencil cap always falls off and it marked up the entire inside of my purse, so I would suggest using it in the morning and then just leaving it at home, because you wouldn't need to touch it up anyway during the day. However, the product is still pretty decent so I would still buy it again.
edit: didn't notice that it said Brunette. I haven't tried that one, I bought the dark brown and it's probably the one to get if you're looking for a more brown shade.
Best brow product i've used. It makes light eyebrows look full and even...perfect. The pencil is goes on really smoothly and the color is perfect; not too dark not too light. Then with the gel, the pencil stays put. I just wished that the gel was CLEAR not brown too. Will repurchase.
After some digging around, I found this product at Big Lots (last one in this shade that was available!) for 1.99. I applied it to my brows on the way hope, using the pencil lightly with soft strokes, and then using the gel. To my surprise my brows actually looked good, and not too harsh or fake looking. I agree that the Brunette shade does have a bit of an auburn cast, but I think thats why it looks better with my hair, as it is a reddish brown color. Great item for the price and how much more finished my brows look after using this, and I hope I will be able to find it again at such a great price.
