I’ve been using this for years now. There are so many drugstore brow products now, but there weren’t very many at all when I started using this. At the time, there were probably 6 or less pencils available at drugstores (less powders, no other brow products) that were specifically for brows. And all of those were either too warm or too light.
I found this when medium brown was still called something else, maybe medium ash. I haven’t tried many other brow products since, and none that I liked as much.
My brows are naturally quite thin and sparse.
I did pluck them way too much when I was in high school. It was the late 90’s and that was the thing to do lol. I don’t think that that made too much of a difference though.
Anyway, this works well to fill in the thin places and looks pretty natural. I have this brands powder and like it too, but rarely use it. It doesn’t look better to me, and takes longer. The pencil lasts even when I go swimming. In the 10 or more years that I’ve used it, the spoolie hasn’t broken off, even when I’ve lost a lid so didn’t use it. I’m not careful with it either, so I’m not sure why others have problems with it breaking off.
I recently started using Granite because I thought that maybe medium brown looked a little bit too warm. Maybe my skin tone changed. I think that that shade looks better on me now. I’ll definitely repurchase, I’ve already been repurchasing for years.
