I love everything about this pencil except for the actual product. I've tried two colors (dark blonde and brunette) and neither really match my eyebrows. The brunette was way too dark and the dark blonde is just slightly off in tone (a little too red). The product is soft, doesn't really stay put and comes off easily, so it doesn't last the whole day.
I do however love love love love the brush on the other end, how tiny the pencil is and that you just screw it up (no sharpening!). Maybeline makes a very similar eyebrow pencil, Define-A-Brow, which I like a lot better as far as product: color matches me perfectly, harder product, stays in place and lasts longer. The only thing it's missing is the brush on the end. So I keep the Almay around for the brush.

I really like this eyebrow pencil! My only complaint is that is doesn't last long enough, it runs out pretty quickly. It stays on pretty well on my brows. It isn't too dark like most eyebrow pencils out there. I prefer this over Maybelline's Eyebrow pencil where I heard great reviews about but I actually prefer this! It lasts awhile, but rubs off easily unless you set it with powder.

I like this product but. the only thing i dont like about it is the part where u have to twist it to make the product come out. Its really hard and it goes quick. Ive only been using it for about two weeks. so we will see if i continue to use it. but it does do a good job fillin in my brows

I wish I could say I liked this. I currently use a Korean brand eye brow pencil and it's getting pretty hard to find this stuff! I like the fact that it's an automatic pencil with a spoolie at the end. It's also a nice dark brown color. However, I can't keep the stuff on! Unfortunately it keeps smudging on my face and the ends of my eyebrows keep disappearing. I've tried using it together with primer. It still didn't work. So I guess it's back to eyebrow pencil hunting =)

I've been using this product for awhile now and I love it!
they last long, naturally looking, and really cheap.
This is the only brow pencil I use.

I really really like this. I have never really done my eyebrows before, and this was the first product that I bought to try to fill in my eyebrows. This is really great. It's nice and slim so you can take it anywhere. It has a spoolie on the otherside that's great for blending in the line. The pencil is really small so you can make a really precise line when filling in your eyebrows. I bought this in brunette. My natural hair color is a really dark dark dark dark brown, but it comes out dark almost to a black to most people. The black one I thought would be too much for me so I bought the brunette one instead. I'd definately but this again. =)

I have this in dark blonde and it matches great. It lasts all day, and I love that it has the brush on the end instead of the comb like maybelline's Define a Brow. The best DS brow pencil IMO!

Dark blonde matches my hair perfectly, but is just slightly lighter than my brown eyebrows. It is a very nice shade, however, since it has no red in it, which many of the lighter brow colors do. I like the thin pencil. I like to just fill in sparse areas and thicken up my brows a little. The mascara-wand comb wasn't scratchy and didn't pull hairs, and I was able to smudge the pencil just enough to have it look natural and not waxy at all. It didn't last that long, though. On a hot day, this is going to melt right off me. If my skin is dry, this will make my brows itch, but that's no fault of the pencil. I suspect that you only get a small amount of product, not the entire pencil length but only what fits in the top cap. That means I'm going to use this up very quickly. I really like the color and think dirty blondes and mousy browns alike will be able to use this. I'm not in love with it's other features. I'd buy it again, until I find something that is a more perfect match or that is longer lasting.

I'd repurchase if I could ever find it again! Same thing as with the Clinique, the product goes fast. Doesn't work as well as Clinique, but it was my substitute for a while.

This works great as far as making very natural looking eyebrows where mine leave off, but there's barely any product in it! Interestingly, it is the packaging and the tiny tip size that make it work so well, but 0.08 grams of color just doesn't warrant the price or the damage to the environment. If it came with four or five extra sticks of liner to refill the package, and sold for the same price, then it would be perfect.
