This used to be my go to drugstore brow pencil. I liked that it's small and doesn't need to be sharpened. I prefer an ashy/grey/brown brow color, but most of the colors available for this product are tones of brown. I used a spoolie to blend it out and set with an eyeshadow for dimension. I wouldn't use this for all over the brows, just the empty spots. The reason why I won't repurchase is because it's s bit soft. As the day goes on, the wear of this brow pencil looks so ugly. The natural oil of the skin breaks down this product apart and it looks so patchy/blotchy.

This product is one of the better drug store products that I own. The color matches my eyebrows very well and lasts all day without smudging. The thin applicator gives a very precise and easy application, however, the thinness of the applicator is also it's only downside.

I have broken the tip off of this pencil many times since it is so thin and breaks so easily when applying to your brows. Definetly gets annoying after a while, (especially when the piece drops on your face) but I have found that if you crank the pencil just enough so that only the tip of the crayon is exposed from the applicator, it doesn't break off. Just make sure you keep cranking it after you apply otherwise nothing will come out and you will just be scraping your eyebrows with a plastic tube.

Love this brow pencil!! To me it's a dupe for the MAC brow pencil in Spike, which I use to be obsessed with. Not anymore I haven't brought that since I started using the Maybelline pencil. It's not harsh and it's so cheap which I love!! The colors they have are good for me and again it's CHEAP....lol. Try it out at least I don't think you will be disappointed and if you are you didn't go broke by doing so.

I liked the skinny and precise tip. The colour was a pretty good match either. HOWEVER I hate how easily the product chips off when I apply any pressure! I've wasted so much of this product just because I can't use it without the pencil chipping off at least once. (Again, I applied barely any pressure)
Will not repurchase.

I know this sounds really depressing, but when I had chemo and most of my brow hair fell out, this was the only brow make-up I could use that didn't look completely unnatural. It actually looked pretty good under the circumstances, and I tried many, many others. Although now that my brows have grown back, I use powder (I never was very good at pencil except when I had to be!), I am very loyal to this product that helped me through a very hard time.

I really like this eye pencil, its the only one that I am able to use without making my brows look cartoonish. I use the color medium brown on my brows and apply it with a very light hand to shape and fill. I haven't figured out how to properly use the comb end on this brow pencil, so I blend the product out with my e.l.f. brow wand. I actually use the comb end to separate my lashes if they clump together after applying mascara. Will continue to repurchase, it can cost anywhere between $4-$6, depending on where you buy it. A lot of people have said it's a great DUPE for the Anastasia Brow Wiz, but I can't bring myself to pay $20 for a brow pencil to find out....yet lol.

This is an okay product from me. I like the color, it has fine tip which make it easy to fill in the brows. The pencil is not too soft and not too hard. However, I want something that can hold my eyebrows in place, since mine is thick and long. I will keep searching until I find an affordable eyebrows pencil with similar color and can hold the brows. I may or may not repurchase this.

Love it! Very handy eyebrow pencil,I think it's pretty dry formula,and I like it that way.I have it in brunette,and the color is fading brown,not so intense but still pigmented.You just twist it up to apply product.It has a little comb at the other end,I don't use it.Would be perfect if there was a spooley brush instead of a comb,but I use my Ardell spooley/angled liner brush to comb my brows. Will purchase again from eBay.
