UGH! I had to stop using this because it was making my brows itch really bad. Took me a couple weeks to figure out it was the pencil because my left brow started itching first and then my right about a week later. I haven't used it for 2 days now and they're STILL itching. I do like the little eyebrow brush that comes on the cap, but that's about all I can say about it. It has terrible staying power and the color really isn't the greatest. :/
I like this pencil - I use it in brown black for my dark brows. I apply in light strokes and then brush out with the brush attatched to the lid...makes my eyebrows look nice and neat and filled in. Don't use a heavy hand though otherwise your brows end up looking like dark slugs.
I use this in 'Black Brown' and it works well for my black hair. I find that dark brown pencils don't work well as they don't match properly and black is way too harsh looking on me. So this shade is perfect. It draws on nicely, filling in sparse areas gives me a more natural look, and doesn't look like I have 'drawn on' brows. I particulary like that it comes with a mini brush comb with the packaging. It makes it handy for brushing brows in place without having to dig through my makeup bag in the morning. Pencil is easy to sharpen, and the pencil doesn't break easily. Stays on all day without touch-ups. Would buy again :)
I am on my second Rimmel pencil - I was using NARS and Anastasia before. This pencil is amazing, and I think, around 3.39 at Ulta for me. Really high quality - lasts all day for me without touching up. There's really no faults here, other than the fact the packaging is quite ugly and looks out of place with all the NARS in my make up bag. But I think I'll live since this is the best, most natural eyebrow pencil I've ever tried!
This is my all time favorite brow pencil. It is amazing and it gives your eyebrow such a natural look. I use it in dark brown and my eyebrows look absolutely perfect and natural, it doesn't look drawn on. This pencil is cheap and it is amazing!! I would recommend it to anyone. Give it a try. You won't regret it.
I am really glad I got this from a swap because the color black brown is always sold out in stores. I've been using this for a month now and its totally HG material. I only use this for my brows everyday and it works amazingly. The color black brown is PERFECT for people with black hair. Its a dark COOL brown which is the most natural you can get for black hair. The texture is not too hard or soft, just right so that if you use a light hand you can get really natural strokes. I hate brow pencils that are too soft b/c its really hard to apply naturally, it just goes on too heavy.
I use it with soft short strokes mainly on the arch and tail of my brows concentrating on the bottom line. Then I use my Mac 266 to feather it out to the top part of the arch and the front bit of the brow. Then I got back with small strokes on the bottom of the arch and tail for more definition.
The result is so natural but defined. It stays put all day and is easier to apply and more natural than using e/s. I used to use a dark brown e/s and then go over the arch with a black brow pencil for more definition but this replaces both products. Also I totally prefer this to Mac stud, which I feel like is too soft and I really have trouble getting it on naturally continued >>
this eyebrow pencil is alright. not that expensive so i wouldn't complain.. but i probably wouldn't be repurchasing since there ARE better eye brow pencils.. i like the pur minerals eyebrow filler :) . it's awesome.
I don't get the high reviews for this. At most it's an okay pencil. My N.Y.C brow pencil does more for me than this does though. Why would I spend the $5 on this when I can get a 99cent version that's better? It doesn't make sense. The only "nice" thing about this product is that brush on the lid. Most brow pencils should come with it. That's the only "positive' thing I can say about this product.
I accidently over trimmed one of my eyebrows and therefore needed something that would hide the mistake until they grow back. I hunted around various shops looking for eyebrow pencils that were not too expensive as I am on a bit of a budget. I was delighted when I found this for £2.50 and immediately bought it in hazel. I found the colour to be a bit red for my eyebrows which are a more of a grey/blonde colour. I was initially disappointed but found that with a lot of blending and slowly building the colour up the overall look was not too noticeable. I can't fault the price or the packaging (I love the brow brush on the lid) but I feel that Rimmel really need to work on their blonder tones. I would buy this product again if the colour is improved.
I have dark red/ brown hair and the 001 Dark Brown colour is perfect for me as it has red undertones. The texture and staying power of this pencil is great and it makes my eyebrows look much better. I like the way it has a brush on the cap. I also tried this in Hazel but this colour is far too light for me and looked terrible, maybe Hazel would be suitable for natural blondes
