I have this in 40 brun cendre and I like it a lot! I have black hair and this gives me a natural looking set of eyebrows. Downside is that it's pricey (but can be purchased duty free for almost half the price!) and doesn't last very long. However, with a good eyebrow gel, it stays on like a charm even after a run at the gym.

I own this in the fairest shade - 10.
It comes with a great Chanel branded sharpener & a spoolie at one end to comb through your brows afterwards. I like the metal lids that add a touch of quality. The pencil just leans too red for me, and I'm someone with reddish undertones in my hair. The lines aren't as accurate or subtle as you get with an automatic pencil, which is important when you gave sparse, small brows.

Will repurchase over and over. Brun cendre is the perfect color for my dark hair - not too red like most brow products, hooray! Love the texture. Staying power leaves a bit to be desired, as with all softer brow pencils, but I always set with a brow gel anyway so it's doable. I prefer a softer, more blendable pencil and subtler brows than sharp brows that wear like iron.

I've used this for years. It stays on all day, looks natural. Comes with a sharpener (a very sharp one) and has a brush on the end. Top quality.

Absolutely nice brow pencil but it's not quite the best color for me - it's okay, but not perfect.

It stays on for a loong time.
It's easy to apply.
The brush in the other end

Too expensive.

My favourite brow product! After using an atrocious maybelline pencil, I decided to get this one and I am so thrilled. I have black hair, warm skin and got the darkest one, #60. It goes on so smoothly, fills in gaps perfectly and gives my brows the perfect definition. The brow brush is also excellent, one of the better brow brushes I've used. It also looks so natural and is super long lasting. I put this on in the morning and it will last over 10 hours without a smudge. It is perfectly powdery but not waxy, and gives my brows a beautiful defined look. Such an A+ product.

I LOVE this - easy to use, natural, super soft texture, can draw the whole eyebrow within 20 seconds. I'm using 20 Blond Cendre, which is a soft brown colour that slightly leans taupe.

I had always used a small angled brush to apply taupe brown eyeshadow/ eyebrow powder to fill up my brows - until I realized my eyebrows were too short, especially when I wingout my eyeliner for the cateye look. Using a brush to lengthen the brows is no easy task, and I completely failed - I didn't know how to draw the angle, and it ended up in a mess.

I went straight to Chanel to get an eyebrow pencil so as to help myself lengthen the brows, and the beauty advisor used the colour 20 Blond Cendre (only available in certain areas? 'Cause it's not on the US website) and she drew a staight, natural brow in no time. The brow brush at the other end of the pencil is very useful, it softens the whole brow and I use it to slightly erase the end of the brow if I don't like how it looks. The staying power is decent too.

The straight eyebrows just give me a more structured face (overly high arch will age our faces anyway) and I love the texture so much. The packaging comes with a sharpener, which is thoughtful. I need to sharpen it so as to draw the end more precisely.

And extra point given to the beauty advisor who has taught me so well (I could never learn to draw eyebows on videos or magazines, 'cause everyone has a different face!) dastically changed my way of doing my eyebrows. She taught me how to draw on MY OWN eyebrows, and it works well.

Texture: 5/5 buttery soft, not waxy, easy to apply
Function: 5/5 natural, can soften it with the brow brush,
Longetivity: 4.5/5 6-7 hours and it starts to fade
Pigmentation/Colour: 5/5 I have black hair with brown highlights, and the pencil colour is not too dark for me
Price: 4/5 20.5 with the pencil, brow brush and sharpener
Overall: 4.7/5

The colour matched my brows perfectly but that's the only good quality about it.
This melts off my skin by mid stay, shocking staying power for me, and every time i sharpened the pencil, the lead broke! wth...
This cost $50 AUD. Definitely not happy with the product.

My eyebrows are naturally very light and coloring them in everyday is a must. I have always preferred drawing my eyebrows with brow powder because I felt that I had more control applying it with the angled brow brush. Also, using brow pencils in the past had always been a nightmare - too dark, uneven application, etc. But this brow pencil is way better than the brush. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and I haven't colored my brows too dark once (used to be a big problem for me). Using this product has made drawing my eyebrows every morning an effortless task. Love it.

I have this in the shade brun its a warm brown color. For me this product works better as a lip liner rather as a brow definer. Its very soft and creamy and doesn't stay long enough on my brows, plus the color is so wrong at least for me. Although it looks quite neutral on my brows the color looks way to worm and looks horrible on me.As a lip liner works quite well its very soft,creamy and goes on very smoothly in fact reminds a lot a dior lip liner that i have in the shade linen on my lips both look identical .As a brow product its very disappointing even if the color was right still i would hate the texture of it so soft with zero staying power as a lip liner works well though !
