Review for: Deep Brown more...
I really love this pencil! I just recently stopped using it because I got a coupon for an Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil at Ulta. However, I used this for almost a year! It’s around $2 which is fantastic, and it lasts all day. My brows always stayed put, and people would always ask what I used. They would be shocked when I told them! It’s a great pencil. I wish there was more product inside of it. The pigment of the Deep Brown shade is perfect for dark brown to black hair colors. It is very creamy and glides on. The tip of the pencil is a little thicker, and has a slanted edge to it. I prefer using it when the tip was worn down from use so the lines it created weren’t as harsh. Overall great product! I still keep it in my makeup collection and will likely repurchase it.

Review for: Taupe more...
Wish I would of found this sooner! I used Taupe Wich surprisingly worked really well for me. I have dark brown hair and this shade of taupe blended and made my brows look so natural. The brush is good...not to shabby. The only downfall is that it looses it's sharp point after like one use which makes it hard getting a nice sharp line. Would be nice if the would put in a sharpener in the retractable tube. And I go through these pretty fast, not alot of product you get, but for the price I'm fine with that. Stays on pretty well for everyday I use by itself, but if I know I'm going to be out all night or in warmer temps. I set with eyebrow powder and eyebrow gel on top. I have oily skin so this option does help them last. Highly highly recommend!

Review for: natural brown more...
I am obsessed with this product! I have been using the Anastasia brow wiz. This is such a great dupe for it, which really surprised me. It is so good. It applies to nicely and fills in my brows perfectly while keeping them looking natural. The best part is it's only $2.00 at Target. So worth it! I went back and purchased a bunch more so I don't run out. Definitely recommend everyone tries this out. The only down side is there are only 3 shades, but the medium one matched me perfectly.

Review for: Deep Brown more...
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 LancĂ´me Le Crayon Poudre Powder Pencil for the Brows .

Review for: Deep Brown more...
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: Deep Brown more...
This elf brow pencil is okay. I think the product is too pigmented. Even with dark brows, the product may come off looking unnatural. I prefer my brow products to be buildable, rather than being too pigmented when first applying. However, the spoolie brush is great for combing the eyebrows and can make the product appear more natural. Even when using a different eyebrow product, I sometimes use the spoolie end of this to brush my eyebrows.

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!
