things to rave about
  • Neutral Shades: "The thing I most LOVE AND ADORE about this pencil is that special brown color, as i said. it is not red, it is not poopy-yellow, it is not orange, it is just a dark chestnut brown I simply adore. Suits my natural hairs perfectly, goes along with my skin tone." by JolieBelle
  • Long Lasting: "This is the first time EVER that I've found a way to make my brows look full and natural without changing color during the day. I work 12 hour shifts and I have very oily skin that I sometimes wash midway through the day because it's so greasy. Most attempts to pencil in my brows end up looking terrible because it changes colors due to my oily skin. The effects of this pencil stay put throughout my shift. It doesn't change colors and it looks so natural." by ShawB
  • Mimics Look of Real Hair: "Unlike many other brands which come on too creamy (leaving the hair sticking to each other), this is a stiffer pencil, allowing you to mimic the look of real hair. Very natural effect, and this stuff lasts all day. " by micha19
  • Included Comb: "The little brush it comes with is great for blending, and making the strokes look more natural." by brynnmarie
  • Doesn't Break: "It doesn't break and it looks like it'll last forever. I pretty much have no eyebrows at all and I've been using it daily for a couple of weeks and haven't needed to sharpen it." by rodgersgirl
  • Buildable: "It gives just the right amount of pigment and allows you to build up definition nicely." by  Gogogo
things to rant about
  • Tricky to Apply: "I give it three lippies because it's very tricky to apply and if you're not careful it can look chalky and fake." by adndus
  • Very Pigmented: "While it looks ok on the outer part of my brows, the pencil is very pigmented so it's not easy to keep the inner part from ending up being too dark." by jod84
is it for you?
YES:
Want a neutral, natural-looking brow color
 Desire a very long-lasting brow pencil that doesn't wash away with skin oils
 Need pencil strokes to look very natural and mimic real hairs 


NO:

 Need an on the go, easy eyebrow pencil that doesn't require blending
