I purchased this pencil because I was trying to save a few bucks instead of the $24 dollars I pay for the Brow Wiz. When I tried the swatch on my hand in the store, it glided on fine, but when I used it at home, it appeared to be too waxy and the product..sheds? if you blend too hard. It took a while to fill in my sparse brows, but other than that, the overall blending is nice once you get a good grip on it.. The shades are not that bad, nothing too red or beige, but I did have to go a bit lighter to get the color I wanted. Other than that, it's a pretty decent pencil, not nearly amazing as Brow Wiz, but it's a nice alternative. Would I repurchase again??? Yes, if I need to pinch pennies for a bit, but other than that, I think I might stick with Brow Wiz for the time being.
