I love this eyebrow pencil! It's great for eyebrow beginners like me. The color matches my hair and brows well and the pencil goes on nice and smoothly. It fills in the brows very well and it's easy to use. The brush is nice; not too hard and helps shape the brow nicely. I would recommend this product to anyone to fellow brow beginners!
Has become an everyday staple!
I am known to use products that aren't HG everyday, or when I do makeup. (Until I get sick of them and move onto something better, lol). They're pretty good and they become part of my everyday routine. Its easy to form habits! The color isn't spot on, as its a little red toned, but it blends in nicely. I like that the stub is retractable and has an interesting oval shape to cover more area. Its not super creamy, but not too dry. I don't use the brush on one side and I'm always pulling off the wrong cap because its two sided and one side has a brown cap, so I think that's the side with the pencil! Lol. I am still dying to use more ABH stuff, but I'm also really into NYX and super happy that they have a selection in my local CVS, better for me to sample away! I think why I find this pencil so useful and that I've used it everyday, even without other face makeup is that my eyebrows are not very dark, especially compared to my head hair. They appear lighter and a little sparser. I minimally groom using an eyebrow razor every 3 weeks and have been enjoying filling them in with this pencil everyday to maintain their shape, but also create the illusion of more "normal" brows, or else they sorta get lost on my face, and especially in pictures. I'd say get this if you're in need of a brow pencil because its cheap, easy to find, and nice to use before you splurge on a ABH product, for example. I don't use this pencil when doing a full face because its not dramatic enough, but for everyday, I like the natural look it provides. Try it out! I wouldn't call it HG but certainly "everyday".
Not for me
I bought taupe but it is not the right color for me, it is definitely not a taupe color. It is a light, really warm brown color that is orange-toned. This would look good on people with reddish hair but it is not a taupe color! Also I find it hard to work precisely with the product because it is not as hard and sharp as a regular brow pencil. But for beginners it would do fine.
Perfect for well-groomed brows in a flash.
I like to keep my eyebrows well groomed because as the saying goes; ‘eyebrows frame your face’, notably your peepers, which are claimed to be ‘the windows to your sole’. Well-shaped brows will furthermore balance the rest of your facial features. Although my own brows are along way from being ‘well-shaped’, they have come a long way since the days of plucking the living daylights out of them! Now, more than ever, whilst they are growing, I rely on my trusty eyebrow pencil to fill in my sparse brows, depending on the waxy consistency to better mould the shape and hold the hairs in neatly in place. The attached brush on the flip side, maintains the tidy appearance, guaranteeing my brows retain that permanent ‘wow’ factor’. Something worth noting, is this dark brown shade is, as a matter of fact, a pretty accurate match, comparable to my light-medium brown coloured brows, so beware that the highly saturated colour, is lighter than expected, therefore you may need a darker hue than normal.
I re-purchase it!
I have pretty full and dark eyebrow, I use eyebrow pencil to lighten the eyebrow shade, black to dark brown. This NYX Retractable Eyebrow Pencil is super easy to use, give enough color to eyebrow, cover the missing spot naturally and brush is useful too. This is my second time punching this pencil, that means a lot!
I bought this from cherry culture a couple years ago and I am beginning to think I got a defected pencil since the reviews below really love this product. The shade I bought was a little too light for my eyebrows but it is also very dry and hard to apply. I might have received a bad batch thought.
This is my everyday Eye brow pencil, It's blendable and It's definitely easy to apply. and doesn't smudge. PICK THIS UPPPPP!!! I GUARANTEE YOU, YOU WILL LOVE IT!! if you use it right !Lol
