I like this product quite a bit. I'm new to using any brow enhancer on myself. In my whole (makeup wearing) life, I have never used any eyebrow products to add color, thickness or shape, only gels, waxes etc to hold my brows in place. My brows have always been a very defining feature for me, thick, dark, and I have had compliments over the years even from strangers! My personal and professional belief having been a pro makeup artist for a time, is that brows look best with minimal intervention, not plucked into oblivion (which is where many go after a time, never to return). I didnt order this product, rather it was part of a package deal when I ordered the YBF neutralizing yellow cream concealer and matching powder.
My brows have not changed all that much over time, but a condition I have that effects all my moisture glands, therefore my hair and skin, has at times effected my brows too. All of my hair is weak, prone to breakage, so sometimes I will notice a small area look a little sparser. This pencil is a good fill in just in that little spot. My brows are dark ash brown, no red at all though the hair on my head is much warmer in tone. This is not a warm brown though I have seen much more ash toned browns, this medium one works well enough with my brow coloring to go unnoticed. One key step to appear youthful as we get older is to try and give back to your appearance what time and nature are detracting bit by bit (unless father time doesn't have your address!).
So if you've become parched and dry, add back moisture but also the appearance of glowy, dewier skin with highlighter. If you're lacking color but never wore blush, its time to try some, or maybe bronzer, both. If you never were one to do anything but your brows but brush them up and in place like me, you may not realize that you miss a bit of the lushness they once had till you do the most minimal amt of touch up where they look sparser, not changing the shape or line, until you try it.
I find this long lasting, not a pointed, draw on feather lines as the tip is rounded and cannot be sharpened. However, it is not creamy like an eye liner so you can draw with it to some extent. I love the spoolie brush on the other end an d how that comes with a cap too. Word of caution, be extra careful, the inside part of mine, the "lead" if you will, fell out the first time I tried using this. An attempt to fit it back in caused it to break in pieces. I contacted YBF and received a new one from them. A few others have had a similar problem as well.
I must admit I never wanted to add yet another "thing" to my regimen, and still hate that a medical condition (it beat time to the punch!) is making a favorite feature of mine a little different. But this is such a quick step thats its "painless." This brow pencil would work on both lighter and darker brows that mine, its quite versatile. Remember, add back whats been subtracted the best you can!
