Reasons I like this product:
1. It makes brow grooming so simple and easy. It gets rid of the need for extra brushes, as well as the mess and fuss of powder. The entire process of doing my brows takes all of thirty seconds each morning and they look great.
2. The brush at the end is nice and stiff, thick and regular. And rounded. It's just perfect. Everything a brow comb should be.
3. Once done, your eyebrows will stay that way all day. No melting, no traveling, nothing.
Reasons I don't like this product:
1. The tint leans pretty reddish.
2. Its texture is hard and waxy, so you have to press hard to get it on. This is good because it makes it last a long time, but sometimes I'll give myself a really heavy line on accident and have to go back with the brush to scrape it smooth. This is poky and irritating.
3. I don't know, it's kind of expensive...? But on the other hand, it seems like it will last years. I've been using it for 2-3 months and it still hasn't worn down enough to fit in my generously sized makeup pouch.
For me, the sheer convenience of this product makes up for the cons. I love being able to give myself perfectly groomed brows in under a minute using just one item.

So I was looking for ONE product for my brows that I could just swipe on and go with on a daily basis. I am so lazy and sleepy in the morning that no matter how hard I try, makeup just does not get done - no, not even eyebrows. As a matter of fact, very little, other than brushing my teeth and showering, gets done. But I wanted to at least start doing my brows if nothing else. This product makes that possible. Many have complained that it's hard and waxy, thereby seemingly underpigmented. But, for an everyday clean brow I do not want to be overpigmented. So, I like the formula (though it was a turnoff at first). It allows you to get a natural, everyday brow without using wax AND pencil AND powder AND gel, etc...I guess Anastasia knows best. And it stays on ALL DAY - even with my oily skin. After you start making those little short strokes, you see your brows coming together quite beautifully. And the color is natural and subtle. Perhaps for a more intense look, I would want to add a powder. Also, I have a feeling it will go a long way because you don't use that much to get your nice natural brow and the pencil is long. I love just throwing this in my bag to use on the train to work - right before I nod off for a nap.

I am Chinese. So this was the "closest" the MUA at sephora could get to my natural brow color. I think it wasn't really the right color. I had to use a tinted brow gel to color my brows JUST to fit the color of this brow pencil. The brow pencil is really thin and very exact. There really isn't a lot of product in there compared to other brands. I am currently using MAC's Eye brow pencil in Lingering and it looks a lot more natural annnnd without the need of a tinted brow gel. I really wanted to like Anastasia's products, but this is the second time her products have disappointed me. Plus the products are pretty expensive.

Love the color and the duo ends design.
Hope Anastasia will come out with more colors!
A little bit expensive but I think you could use this for a long time!

This pencil put an end to about 8 years of suffering with incredibly sparse brows and a very noticeable bald spot right in the middle of my right brow. Nothing I have ever used looked so natural and undetectable..nothing!
I have jet black hair which is very thick and grows with the speed of sound...except my eyebrows...they decided to stop growing altogether. Previously I used eye shadow, Brun and/ or charcoal brown by Mac did an ok job. Now I have been introduced to this pencil and I swear this transforms my face. It looks so realistic and soft, the color is beyond perfect and it lasts until i take it off with the rest of my make up in the evening. My mother who typically notices absolutely everything actually asked me what I did to make my brows grow back. I'm unbelievably happy I found this!!!!

Love how this pencil lets me fill in my brows yet keeps them looking really natural!

Great eyebrow pencil; it glides on but does not melt off through out the day. Plus it was a great match for my skin and hair color. Would buy again.

I love this pencil! I have almost black eyebrows and fair to med skin. Because my brows are so dark a lot of pencils are either too dark and ashy or too light and warm. This one is perfect. It stays on all day even though my skin is a bit oily, the color is narural and smooth. I can smudge it with my finger to soften but then once it sets, its on all day. I have tried sooo many brow pencils, pens, markers, pots of color, you name it. This is officially my HG!

Overall this product is good but I feel I still need brow powder after applying the brow pencil because the colour is not dark enough for me. however the pencil end has wax in it, which is great because it holds my brows in place. The groomer tool is good too for combing through after... but it does get a little dirty after awhile and eyebrow hairs can get stuck in it.

my momma would roll over in her grave if she knew that I spent 21 Bucks on a brow pencil. I have extreme coarse, thick brows that were becoming warewolf-esque. I had the wax,brushes the whole 9 and tried to be el cheapo with a 99 cent brow pencil (I'm looking at u wet and wild). This brow pencil is boss, foolproof. It was easy to make the light feathery strokes necessary to achieve the natural "I don't care" eyebrows that I yearn for. Hey when its 1994, and ur 25 you never would think that u would ever have sparse brows, thanks to pam anderson and tyra banks u just pluck, pluck away. But I digress, for gals over 40 Who want lush brows ABH is worth every penny ;)

This is the BEST brow pencil ever! The color is perfect for me, I'm 1/2 latin so my brows are dark, its the perfect color not to dark or fake looking. The color stays all day and the texture keeps them in place after brushing them into place with the brush at the end. Gives your brows a very polished look. This is a must have.

LOVE this brow pencil!! Stays on, pencil is slightly waxy in consistency so no need for an eyebrow wax, and doesn't fade. The color is perfect for me since I'm asian and I have black hair. Doesn't look too 'fake' or drawn on, but the key is to use the spooly on the end to brush it out a bit. I was born with weird eyebrows that get reallllly sparse near the ends (thanks dad...) so it looks like I only have half an eyebrow, so a brow-pencil is a must for me. It honestly stays on all day!!! I prefer to draw it on with a heavy hand and use the spooly to brush it out to a perfect color. Please keep in mind to wash out the spooly every so often to keep it nice and dense.

I'm on my 2nd pencil. I get the color "Brunette." I have skin with light to medium with yellow undertones.
The product (0.1 oz) does not dry out, it comes with a brow brush on the other end. I prefer this to the brow wiz simply because it's easier to apply. (I find the point on the brow wiz way to small and sharp).
It isn't considered an HG product yet because I want to try other products first...especially the Shu Uemura hard pencil in seal brown.

I love this brow pencil so much that sometimes, I skip every other makeup product and just define my brows with this. It makes my brows look so defined and gives me that "finished" look. The pencil itself is not too soft that it will crumble and its not too hard that the color payoff suffers; it is dense enough without being UD 24/7 eyeliner soft. "Brunette" is perfect for my dark brown brows and does not look fake or make them look "drawn in." I think the pencil is a bit waxy which makes my brows stay in place even without a brow gel. The spoolie on the other end is awesome. It is dense but not pokey. It definitely does a great job at combing my brows into place. This is a definite repurchase but I've been using this non-stop for about 2-3 weeks and I didn't feel the need to sharpen. Anastasia is the queen of brow products :)

This is my HG brow pencil. I originally had this pencil in Ultimate Brown, but found that it was too yellow for my black brows, so I got this color, which is the darkest one in the line. It is a dark brown, with some red undertones I think. It's a pretty good match for my brows, as black brow pencils have a tendency to turn grey throughout the day. I like the hard waxy consistency of this pencil, as I have very oily skin that would smear and smudge creamier brow pencils. If it gets too hard, then I just sharpen it a little and it works again. Stays in place all day and looks natural. Will definitely repurchase.

The name speaks for itself in my opinion. Great for a quick easy brow on mornings when I don't have time to fiddle with the MUF brow gel and angled liner brush. I'm on my second one and will continue to repurchase.

I've had my pencil for over 2 years. NO LIE. And I still have a little knub left over. I bought this mainly because I was tired of fussing with a brush and powder for my brows. I just wanted something simple and easy and this is it. I've bought different kinds of brow products within these past 2 years but I always go back to this. I will repurchase once I run out, maybe in a lighter color. So paying about twenty bucks for over 2 years of product I think that's worth it. Great product!

Great pencil, always stays on and is a great medium brown color. I have used this every day for at least 6 months and still have about 1/2 left. Definitely will repurchase.
