Perfect medium brown with no red. Not too dry or too soft. I like a harder pencil because they last on the brows and this is harder but still soft enough to deposit. I cant overdo it with this pencil the best pencil i have tried for natural looking brows. No more charcoal brown eyeshadow from mac for me. The brush on the end is very handy and hence i bought this and not mac lingering pencil. Also as its not a wind up pencil this lasts much longer for the money.

The girl at utla tried it on me, I was shocked when I looked, just plain bad, color and everything

dont see what the hype is about this 2.00 rimmel beats any brand all the time.
however all I do is a little fill in, and dont go crazy with my brows, less is more, I cant stand a real
thick drawn on brow,,,

Beware, it pulls out hair!

My eyebrows are dark, but sparse. Most "brunette" brow pencils are too red. Finding this pencil in medium ash several years ago was a revelation. It's the perfect shade! Unfortunately, the force required to apply it pulls out my brow hairs, and I don't have brow hairs to spare!

Thankfully, Anastasia came out with the Brow Wiz automatic pencil. Same perfect color with a smoother application that doesn't pull out hairs. It doesn't last nearly as long, but at least I won't be browless.

Finally! A brow pencil that actually matches my black hair. I've had very bad luck in the past finding a brow pencil that works for me. Medium Ash is perfect. I don't run into the issue with the pencil being too red or too brown. The spooly at the end comes in handy as well. Just make sure your brows are groomed otherwise , it won't look good on you. I have extremely light, full brows but this will definitely work better for those who have sparser brows.

I love this brow pencil! My eyebrows need a lot of work... they are fairly sparse, but I absolutely HATE the look of eyebrows that look so OBVIOUSLY drawn in, and im not a fan of brow powders (mind you, I haven't tried Anastasia's brow powder) because I find they aren't as precise. This pencil does the trick for me - precise eyebrows that don't look overly made up. some people complain that it is too light - that is not a problem for me as I have very fair skin. it is a very hard pencil, and lasts a VERY long time. I think my first one lasted at least a couple years. it is slightly waxy, so it keeps my eyebrows in place all day, and lasts all day.

This pencil is just overpriced CRAP...the pencil itself is just soo hard,you have to really push down hard to get any product out of it!And the color may be nice,but who gives a crap about the color when you can hardly draw your eyebrows on??I will never recommend this to anybody!Back to Rimmel I go!

I seriously believe that Anastasia is the only company that knows eye brow colors. My asian brows never match any drugstore pencils. After being disappointed multiple times, I finally forked the money over to buy this and the brow powder and I am not disappointed. I finally have bold eye brows!

I cringed when shelling out $29 for this brow pencil but the reviews were good and everything I've tried is either too dark, too light or too red. This was the perfect shade with my medium/dark brown hair and looked very natural. The ashy tone was just what I needed and the spoolie on the end of the brush was perfect to blend the color and smooth my brows into place. Perfect product to toss in my purse for touch ups and I was in love after the first use. However, over the next few days I noticed small bare spots in my brows. I think the pencil is just a little too hard/waxy and was tugging and dragging too much. Maybe my technique is incorrect but I just can't ruin my brows any further to keep trying and see. I've never had this happen with any other pencil I've tried. Maybe I'll have to exchange for the powder product.

I have two HG brow pencils in rotation -- the Shu Uemura Brow Pencil in Seal Brown and the Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Medium Ash. I do my brows every single day and I've tried tons of brow products, but these are the two that I reach for the most! I love brow pencils (as opposed to brow powders) because they are so quick and easy to use. I don't like my brow pencils to be too soft or powdery because they usually deposit way too much color, and the Anastasia Brow Pencil's formula is PERFECT. As much as I love the formula of the Shu Uemura pencil (it has a very hard texture that gives off a muted color), I find that my brows look better with the Anastasia pencil because they appear more groomed and natural. Because the formula is slightly waxy, my brow hairs get a light hold that keeps them in place so that the hairs won't stick out all over the place. Since the texture is also softer, the color can always be softened up with the spoolie brush on the other end of the pencil. The brow color gets spread with the spoolie brush and the effect looks very natural. I use the spoolie brush with the Shu Uemura pencil too, but an extremely light hand is required because instead of softening up the color on my brows, the product will actually disappear and then I have the draw some more on. For this reason, I think the spoolie brush works best with the Anastasia Brow Pencil's formula. The Medium Ash shade is also great because it is a nice warm taupe color that looks better with my warm NC30 skin tone, while the Shu Uemura pencil in Seal Brown is a cooler taupe. I also love how it lasts all day! In my opinion, this stuff is well worth the $22 at Sephora because I haven't found anything else quite like it!
