So, I used to be terrified of filling in my brows. I personally am not that much of a fan of obviously drawn-on eyebrows, and I'd only ever used pencil "brow and liner" on my brows, and it didn't look good at all in my opinion. I figured I'd be fine, since, though my brows aren't thick, they aren't necessarily patchy, but coming home from college for a bit included my mom telling me I needed to do something about that. Cue trip to the local Sephora in JCP. I asked the makeup artist what I should do, and she took me over to the makeover station, pulled out this great product, and started to apply it while giving me tips. She handed the pencil over to me to try my other brow, and I was amazed at how smoothly it went on but also at how you had to actually make an effort to overdo it. She gave me a few more tips, and then I was on my way with this product in hand to the register.
The next day, I tried it again and had the exact same amazing results. It matches my blackbrown brows perfectly and gives the illusion of filled in brows without looking drawn on at all. It's absolutely my favorite brow product ever.
tldr: First ever brow product and it delivered amazing results. You don't have to worry about overdoing it on your brows because it takes a bit of an effort to do so, plus the spoolie helps take off extra should you get a little heavy-handed.
Cons: The spoolie can work a little too well and take off more than I want. Also the price is kinda high (I paid $21), and you gotta be careful opening this product sometimes. One day I was getting ready to do my brows and took the cap off a little too forcefully or something and the pencil fell out of the casing! Thankfully I found it, but that might be a concern for some people. It only happened to me once, though, so as long as you aren't being too aggressive, that shouldn't be an issue.

The legends are true! For the longest time, I avoided trying the Brow Wiz because I just didn't want to believe all the hype and I felt that my current brow pencil (Pixi Natural Brow Duo in Soft Black) was the best I had ever tried. Needless to say, I was wrong. This stuff is amazing. I tried a few shades before I settled on Ebony, which looks natural on my dark brown brows without being too warm. The bane of my existence is red-toned brow products, so this shade is perfect.
The product itself is foolproof. The tip is very fine, and it has just enough pigmentation so it doesn't look too drawn on. My only issue is that the spoolie on the other end works a bit too well. I need a very light hand while combing through the product on my brows or else the spoolie wipes a bit too much product off. Other than that, this pencil is perfect.

I love this product. The formula and consistency, combined with how super slim the pencil is, are great for creating a natural look. It lasts all day. It's easy to use, love the twist up style, and the spooly brush is very helpful and very handy. Plus there's a nice auburn, which isn't always easy to find. But the price is sort of staggering considering how little product you get. I wish I could find something comparable without the huge price per ounce.

PROS: The color and consistency of the product is pretty good. As for packaging I love the spooly
CONS: why the hell am I paying $20 for a product intended for (nearly) daily usage, and it only lasts 2-3 weeks at best? If you need a brow pencil for a a sparse area or two, this is for you. But if you're going for a product to actually give you brow, I'd pass on this and go with a more affordable option.
I'm like known in my area as "The Brow Girl" and I've found some awesome alternatives to this like: the fabubrow from Jordana (I keep mine in the fridge) or even the Milani brow pencils! I love my Mac Lingering and I find that I get waaaaaaaay more product with all of these!

Oh my gosh. I'll admit I was unbelievably apprehensive about paying so much for a brow pencil. But it is SO worth it. When I first swatched it, I thought it might not be pigmented enough, and would drag across my skin, but it's completely different when you actually apply it to your brows! The pencil is so thin and precise and deposits the perfect amount of color, making your strokes look so natural and flawless. I used to spend so long doing my brows but now it only takes me 30 seconds. Its so perfect for people just starting out with filling in their brows... or anyone for that matter, it's just a great product! I see no need to try anything else.

Beautiful product coming in many shades. Lasts all day without smudging off. If you'd like to opt out for a less expensive drugstore brand, milani makes a nice retractable eyebrow pencil for $6 (only downfall is that it comes in two shades: taupe and dark brown)

Ahhhhhmazing! This is soooo-o much better than IT Cosmetics Universal brow pencil (a distant 2nd fave), I have brunette & it's just perfect. I wish the pencil had more product in it coz it gets used up quickly easily. It's kind of a bummer that. It goes on so smoothly, stays put so well & just outperforms every other brow pencil on the market of course ymmv but I think this is the gold standard! IT Cosmetics is similarly priced fwiw but ABH is better to me. If you use this up quick I suggest looking into ABH Dip Brow as you may get mileage out of it, but you need to buy 2 products the Dip Brow & the ABH brush but it lasts longer than this pencil's meager supply for me. Can I get a holla for all the brow girls on fleek?! >:)

I love this brow pencil so much!! I have it in taupe and it's a great color for people with ashy blonde hair. The tip on the pencil is very fine and allows you to draw on really realistic, natural brow hairs. I also have Anastasia's brow powder and dipbrow, but when I want nice brows in a short amount of time I reach for my brow wiz over the others. My only complaint is that you don't get much product for the price so I tend to go through them in a few months.

Love this brow product! I use soft brown, and it is the perfect shade. I have been a fan of Anastasia brow products and this is best one so far. The pencil gives great control of application for a soft or bolder look. HG product.

I am the big on natural makeup and this is so extremely natural but precise. And the colour is spot on. I have dark brown hair which looks black and I have dark brown/brunette, I'm quite sure that's the colour.
The formula is dry and not creamy which I like. It makes sketching very easy and light but you can create harsher lines just by pressing harder. Its also very fine the packaging and the product itself. It doesn't seem to fade but I can't be 100% sure because I use it so light its not like I can tell my brows disappeared if the product disappeared. When I'm drawing it on and lined it too harsh I can wipe it off with my finger or blend it easily in with the brush that it comes with. If you drew it harder it would be harder to undo it with your fingers though.
I also really like the brush. It's a spoolie brush that's quite thin and small that fits well with the hair on my brow. It's small and dense which grips onto my hair and shapes them very well instead of just scrapping my skin.
Really like the product itself, brush and packaging though I have a feeling I probably lose the lids.. Its so tiny and small.
Anyways one huge negativity is that its $34$AU and it contains the littlest product I've ever seen any product offer. Its like 0.085g if I remember correctly. I twisted it all the way up and it was as short as 1/3 of my finger and the size of a spaghetti or thinner.
That's very upsetting and sad Sephora Au mislead us and said they were going to "match US prices" because I would love to repurchase but there's so little in it for such a hefty price even if its really good. I think once I finish I will try to Nars brow pencil because its the similar price of the brow wiz in US.
