I am reviewing this pencil as an eyeliner, not a brow filler (I use Maybelline's Ultra Brow for that). I think this is one of my faves to line my eyes solely based on the color. I'm a fair-skinned blonde and it's tough to find a brown to line my eyes that doesn't look harsh or overwhelming. As I age (I'm 40), I have to wear more makeup to look put together, but it has to be softer-looking -- I can't get away with the stronger colors of my youth, alas. My makeup has to work harder to define my features & brighten my face while simultaneously giving the impression of a light hand. This taupe liner is just dark enough on my lower lash line to fit the bill. I use a slightly darker brown on the top lash line. I really like the effect of this lighter brown color; it's just right for my blonde coloring and looks like it "belongs" on my face (if that makes sense). I felt compelled to take one lippie off because it needs to be sharpened regularly to maintain a nice point; it's a soft consistency and you do go through the pencil quickly from all the sharpening. But c'mon, it's Wet & Wild...you can stock up.

I've used the taupe shade on my brows for years. It's ideal because the undertones are ashy/gray instead of red or black, so it looks natural on women with fair skin or hair.
The formula is waxy and soft, so the pencil wears down quickly, and you have to be sure to not draw too heavily, or your brows will look coated. Also, the cap is thin plastic, and it cracks easily, which allows it to smash down on the pencil tip. I fix this by wrapping Scotch tape around the pencil so the cap is more snug.
I'll continue using this pencil and highly recommend it for brows. It's dirt cheap, and the color and formula really let you build up your brows' shape naturally.

I use the Taupe as a quick brow filler/color, and it works every time. Since the pencil is rather soft, make sure to apply with smooth, short strokes. I always set with Mally's colorless brow powder. It gives a very natural look, and is great for minimal makeup days.
Dirt cheap and available everywhere. This is a classic.

Too soft to be used as brows pencil.

This brings me back to high school when all i would use is some foundation, this eyeliner, mascara and gloss. That was all I needed. Now I rarely use it, but when you think about it, this is all you really need for a good liner. Sure, I have plenty of other liners...Cream liners, liquid liners, shadow liners, but when all is said and done, they all do the same thing. It makes you wonder why some people will spend $7 on another drugstore brand liner when this is one of the best. I have the white pencil for my waterline and black for my eyelid. It goes on smoothly, its pigmented, and its dirt cheap. what more could you ask for?

these pencils have a great creamy consistency, but that's the reason it's so bad. i tried lining my top lid and waterline with the black shade. it gets easily smudged and always ends up under my eyes in minutes!
the dark brown shade is great for my eyebrows though, so i will probably buy it again for that purpose. for pencil eyeliner, though, i guess i'm sticking with Almay.

I bought this in the color taupe on sale at Walgreens a few months ago for .49 cents USD each. I love the color pay off and it doesn't give me that red/brown look like other eyebrow pencils I've used. The only thing I didn't like was how creamy it is. I purchased NYC eyebrow pencil for .93 cents USD, and I'm going to make the comparison. When it comes to stuff like this that goes out so quick, I don't really believe in investing a fortune. Affordable and it gets the job done! Works better than other products I've spent much more on.

I swapped this in light brown (I think), and used it until the very end. Its color's natural and easy to apply, a bit gel-like, with good lasting power. It's better than the brow pencil from Ardell which comes together with the swap.
Cons: It goes really fast, u'll have to sharpen it often. Till the end of the pencil the product stopped, leaving a hole in the pencil. :)

I have very very sparse eyebrows, from years of over plucking and just not having enough to begin with. I use the color taupe (I am very fair with strawberry blond hair, with slightly reddish/ blond eyebrows) and this works great ! I don't apply from the stick, I rub the pencil tip all over a slanted eyeliner brush and then use the brush to apply soft strokes on my eyes. It works perfect !

This stuff is awsome! I have the color Taupe ( OOoo-kei, all my browpencils are "Taupe"), and this is now becoming my HG browpencil. I prefer it over the Styli-Style 24. So natural and last all day. Love it!
