I love soft blonde! This is the perfect shade for my blondish brown eyebrows. I love that it self sharpens. ( I hate pencils that need sharpening and hope to never use one again)
The super fine point of this gives perfect feather strokes to create a very natural brow. It lasts all day and washes off easily with my cleanser.

I over-plucked my eyebrows in my teens and they were never that thick to begin with. This baby gives me my brows back and the black/brown shade is perfect for my very dark brows. The fact that the pencil is so thin means my brows look very natural. It is quite expensive but I can't find anything else that works so well so I can't complain too much.

I used this one in black brown for my eyebrows (I am Asian with black eyebrow hairs). It didn't have any red undertone and did its job fine as a brow pencil.
My main gripe is that there is so little product for the price. I even told the Clinique sales associate at Boots that I wasn't sure about paying this much for the brows if there is little product. She just gave me a judgey look and told me to just use finer and very short strokes. However, even after doing that, I used mine up in 2.5 months.
Even though I liked this pencil, I do not want to spend $15-20 every other month on eyebrow pencils, mainly because I have found other drugstore brands (Maybelline define a brow, in particular, which has exact same applicator) that last just as long and work as well, but at a much lower price.

After using this brow pencil for awhile I found this was a higher priced version, yet more mediocre version of Maybelline's eyebrow pencil. I had both in hand and Clinique's went reddish on me so ended up being a bigger fail.
For comparison: Clinique put me in soft brown which definitely had a reddish tinge. Maybelline I had blonde which was a neutral taupe. Me an LLL NC 25 with brown hair.
Both pencils were about equivalent size, hardness, and tip size. I even compared them brow to brow. And they applied about the same. Maybelline was just cheaper and for the size appropriately so. Lasting power was the same between products surprisingly.
I actually preferred the neutralness of the Maybelline one if I had to choose one.

Love this. I use the 'soft brown' colour and it matches my brows (which are slightly darker than my light to medium brown hair) perfectly. There is no hint of orange in it, and it lasts all day as well.

This is an absolutely amazing product!
I bought this for about 19 dollars, which is kind of pricy. But it was definitely worth it.
I have honey-blonde hair and the "#02 soft Brown" is the perfect color for me! I have had a hard time finding the right color, often they are too red-ish or to dark. This color is perfect. It's a couple of shades darker than my haircolor, but it's still not too dark. It's a grey-ish brown color, not too brown or too grey.
My eyebrows are very light, almost non-existing, if I dont fill them in. With this brownpencil + a little bit of brown eyeshadow my eyebrows look defined, yet natural.
I absolutely love this product. I would recommend it to everyone.
+ Great lasting-power - I've worn it for 11 hours and it did'nt fade at all!
+ Very thin "pen" that makes it really easy to line and fill in brows
+ Does'nt flake
+ Great color-range
+ Buildable color
- Not so good at shaping brows, more for filling them in. It does'nt bother me, but it could bother others
- Not alot of product
- It's kind of pricy, even though I think it was worth it

Ok, I gotta be honest. My maid of honor, who works for Clinique, insisted that I use this in the auburn shade for my wedding. I was really hesitant, as I've had bad experiences with auburn brow pencils looking a bit too intense. So for years, I'd just been using a blonde shade of brow powder. However, once I used this I was in love. It's very thin and offers great precision. Best of all- if you have red hair, this will match your coloring without leaving you looking like a clown.

I purchased deep brown for eyebrows a couple months ago and I really liked how the brow pencil let me control the strokes on my eyebrows. My eyebrows looked incredible and natural (when applied correctly).
Cons- I ran out of the product in ONE MONTH, about $16 bucks, although you have control on the amount of product you want to apply you have to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL when youre turning the stick whenever you want to apply to eyebrows because once you turn it, there is NO turning back.
Pros-Natural looking brows, you have control unlike other eyebrow pencils, gels or powders, there is a color that will suit your hair and face.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Tan Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
Pros: Great colour selection
LOVE the fact that it is a twist rather than sharpen
The cool undertones really are easy to blend
Con: The tip can be a bit finer for more precise brow detailing
Other than the single con I really recommend this brow pencil :)

The product functions okay if your eyebrows need to be filled in. If you died your hair and your eyebrows are light enough they might match them but for darker brunnettes trying to match their eyebrows its mediocre. My eyebrows are dark and Scandinavian and I have copper hair . I brought this in auburn 05 to have a more natural look and while its okay it's just not what I was hoping for. Other reviewers have complained about the packaging and they are right. The pen needs to be twisted up and will only go up a certain amount so there is some unused product left over the tip can also break while your using it which is annoying and the cap on the bottom falls off easily.

I've had massive troubles finding a brow product that is not expensive, is the right colour, and doesn't run out quickly. I liked my Mac eyebrow crayon which is the same packaging as this (Spiked). I liked the colour but it was very soft so ran out quite quickly. I replaced it recently with Benefit Brow Pencil - I've only had it about 2 weeks but it's already almost half gone as it's so soft I have to sharpen it every day.
I bought this yesterday and already I'm really pleased. The colour is great - nice and ashy (soft brown) as I always have a problem that the browns are too red. It looks nice and natural. The actual product is harder than the Mac one, so you get nice precise lines that don't smudge all over the place and are easy to control. I was able to do both brows and not have to do any corrections. I would buy this again, but I hope I don't have to for quite a while!

Okay, maybe I shouldn't have done this, but I twisted the container to have the liner come out as far as it could, just so that I could see how much was really inside. It only measures 1-1/4" (3cm) and I could not get it to retract back inside. It ended up breaking off and now it is good for nothing. If this posting is worth anything, it would be to let you all know how much is available for the $15.00 and because it would not retract, closing the cap on it after using it, will only flatten the tip. They need to make a better container for this item. I plan on returning it. Btw, they could have easily put in 2 inches at least. *ugh*

My fave brow pencil. I have thin, sparse brows. Soft blonde is perfect for fair hair - it's lighter than MAC's Fling. It's small, discreet, sturdily packaged. The precision tip is fab, you can be pinpoint precise with this. It's easy to create lighter or darker shades within you brow, depending on how hard you press. You can extend your brow, or fill in gaps, and it looks very natural. There's not much in there, so it gets pricey, but it's worth it. It's not retractable, so extend by one click at a time.

Hate to spend bucks on a brow pencil, especially since mine is just a light fill in job - not crafting something from scratch - but sometimes you've got to cave.
They've got the only color that works well on me, Blonde is perfect - even though I'm a light brunette with strong red highlights. This looks very natural - would be hard to mess up with this one - as I have with other brands in their lightest shades: Maybelline, Wet/Wild.

I love this eyebrow pencil. It is superfine as the name says so you get really good control and precision with it. Really easy to get those feather strokes happening and no need to press hard which makes me accidently draw harsh lines alot of the time. Good colour range. Love the different shades of brown. The only annoying thing is when it goes flat and I pull it back into a point with a tissue it can snap really easily and you can't wind it back down if you've wound out too much of the crayon so once its out its out. Quite cheap and does last a long time.

I recently bought this is Soft Auburn. Though I am a natural redhead, I'm grey now and I color my hair. I have used a mascara-like product before and it was ok. But I think I like this better.
When I color my hair, I always brush a little on my eyebrows. Also, I overplucked them towards the nose when I was younger. So, this pencil works really well for filling in sparse areas without looking like I drew them on and also coloring and extending the length of my eyebrows. I have noticed a distinct difference in the way my face looks because I now have eyebrows again...without looking like Uncle Leo (haha...Seinfeld). This pencil is really great.
Additionally, it's hard finding a color for redheads or gingers. Those taupe or blonde pencils/brow mascara things are ok, but this is IT for me!

I picked this up on a whim. My eyebrows are pure ash (not a hint of red or yellow) and I have the hardest time finding brow products that are both cool and light enough. I bought Soft Blonde 01. I do detect the tiniest undertone of yellow, but it is mostly a dark ash blonde, which I cool down a bit more by blending with Laura Eye Brow Definer in the color "Warm" (which is not warm at all).
The automatic pencil is extremely thin and you can forget about sharpening it into a tip by rolling it at an angle on a tissue. Instead, retract it almost to the edge of the tube and rub it against the back of your hand until it is completely flat. Then twist a little bit of product out and you can use the sharp edge to draw the thinnest hair possible. Great stuff that stays put ALL day.
The funny thing is I had been using Clinique Brow Shaper in Shaping Charcoaled for almost two decades but was starting to find it too dark (thinning brows, hair getting more ashy from grey). I laugh at all the money I wasted experimenting on various brands that turned out to be duds (Chantecaille, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Suqqu, and so on), when my new HG brow product was waiting for me at Clinique, just like old times.

I bought the Soft Blonde shade even though my natural hair color is a dark brown and my hair is dyed an auburn shade. Soft Blonde is a nice, neutral taupe. It accentuates and fills in my brows wonderfully. It's not too dark and there is no redness in the pigment as many other brow products have. When I first tried this product, I thought it was identical to Maybelline Define A Brow ( I used dark blonde). While the product packaging and applicator look the same, Clinique's product definitely has a more substantial consistency. It's a little thicker, in a good way. I love this and know I will repurchase again and again.

I am writing a review because I ran out of this and need to buy a new one asap. It lasted me about 3 months for daily use. I like that it is an automatic liner so you don't have to sharpen. This is the first brow product I have ever finished! It is natural looking as long as you choose the shade closest to you natural brow colour. It is also long lasting. I found other brow pencils would itch my brows but this did not do that. I really like how it is a really thin liner so you never over colour your brows. It is around $16.50 CAD, sort of pricey but I tried drugstore brow stuff for much less and was not satisfied. The extra money for satisfaction of a product is worth it in my opinion.

The soft blonde shade is perfect for my Asian brows -- it blends really nicely and looks natural!
