This brow pencil is excellent product for the price. My brows are really minimum effort, just a little grooming and minor amounts of filling in. I've been using Benefits ka-BROW with gimme brow for about a year now but wanted something inexpensive to keep at work (on the 99% of days I don't leave time to do makeup before I leave the house for work). This works pretty good for my minimal eyebrow needs. The pencil part is a little bit tougher than I would prefer and the end definitely does not keep it's shape. The color works well for my medium brown hair. The grooming tool makes it convenient to just shape the existing hairs. Overall, I would probably buy this again.

This is one of my favorite products from elf cosmetics, and I stand behind that they make some of the best eyebrow products. This product is amazing because it’s $3 and comes with a ton of product (one stick has lasted me over 6 months) and it’s so versatile. There is a spoolie on one side (that comes with its own cap so that none of your makeup gets dirty) and it works so well. The product itself can be used as eyebrow and eyeliner, and it works great for both. It lasts for so long, and is so easy to blend out. You can either make this look very natural or super dramatic. My only gripe is that when the nub is worn down, it can be a little hard to shape the brows because the nub is a little too big. Otherwise, this is one of the best products from elf.

I always keep one of these $2 brow colour/brush combos in my makeup bags. You can't beat the price and although it only comes in 3 shades, I be found that 1 of the 3 will work in a pinch for almost everyone's brows.
One end is the standard spoolee brush and it has the strength, length and lasting power of a $25 brush and the other end has a self sharpening roll up pencil that comes in a sharp point perfect for outlining the brows.
If you can afford a 2nd product, I recommend using this as an outline tool and then filling with a lighter pencil and one that matches you colour more precisely such as Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre Powder Pencil for the Brows .

Save your money and buy this!! You will not regret it. I bought this wanting to try out an eyebrow pencil and after having tried a more expensive eyebrow pencil and honestly I don’t know why I would ever spend anymore than $2 on a eyebrow pencil ever again. It does the job and just as well as something that would cost you more. It slides on your eyebrow very smooth and looks very natural. I love that is comes with a brush and that the pencil is pointy rather than with a thick edge like other pencils come. The thin pencil allows for a more natural and precise fill. Will buy again and never go back to anything other than this!

Review for: Taupe more...
First of all, I love the price point of this product! It's definitely worth at least that. I always purchase in the taupe shade, and it blends well with my natural brow color. It's a little more pigmented then I would normally like, so I have to be kind of careful when applying or my brows wind up being more unnatural looking then I like. Not a huge deal. There's not a lot of product, but I find it still lasts me for about a month or two. One thing I don't like about this product is that the pencil is a little on the thicker side, and becomes dull after one or two uses so it can be difficult to get super precise.

Review for: Neutral Brown more...
Wow must i say this is great , its not as hard as the maybelline brow definer , which at times felt like my brows were being pulled as it glided . This glides on so good , its true to color as well . Some are dark brown almost black and brown too dark and light also not light and this is true !!! Also leaves my brows looking like theyre microbladed.
Gives you the perfect filling , and leaves enought touch to look natural if u keep a light hand . Also can do intagram defined brows if u go a bit heavy handed .
Its only 2$ and ive only used it one week and get so many compliments on my brows .

Review for: Deep Brown, Other more...
This is my first makeup product I started using the brow product has amazing pigmentation, smooth so glides on easily, but the pencil starts out sharp and then it becomes dull. When it becomes dull its harder to create natural brows which I prefer. If you prefer a natural brow this product could be good for that but it would be a little difficult. I like this product I just wish the pencil was thinner so its good to create natural brows. I think this brow pencil would be best for the ends of your brows but for the beginning try a light hand. Other then the size of the pencil I have nothing to complain about.

Review for: Deep Brown more...
I use this product for the end of my brows. It’s definitely not a very precise product but that’s exactly why I like it. I find that it fills in the ends of my brows super quick and easy and then I blend it in with no issues. The shade is perfect if you have black eyebrow hair because it will actually match. I find that it can get a little too heavy sometimes if you use a heavy hand so make sure to blend so it’s not so harsh. It’s very forgiving as well because if you mess up you can simply just wipe it away but it’s still great because it stays put in my brows where I want it all day long.

Review for: Deep Brown, natural brown more...
I’ve used the elf brow pencil for so long now, I absolutely love them. They last for so long. I like how easily the product blends into my eyebrow no matter how harsh of a line I initially make. The spool at the end makes blending and making your eyebrows look natural so easy! I use two different colors on my brows to better blend. I have never had issues with this product fading or coming off throughout the day either! The only issue I could see others having with this is the point not being fine enough.

Review for: Taupe more...
This brow pencil is very nice for the price. It is only two dollars, and works well. They do not have a lot of shades to choose from though so the color is a little off for me, but if I pair it with their brow powder it looks good. It is easy to apply and I like that it has a spoolie on one end. I enjoy using this product and I would definitely repurchase it. The tip of the product is a little bigger than I would like but it still allows for precise lines. I would recommend this product to a friend.

Would this be a good brow pencil for a beginner? Or what pencil would be good for someone just starting to get into brows? Thank you!
