  • "Just as good as the Anastasia pencil for nearly half the price! Also this NYX brow pencil is much much better than the other brow pencil NYX makes. It's very skinny with a fine point which makes it easy to pinpoint those brow areas you want to fill in with precision. The only drawback is that it's not as pigmented as the ABH one. Otherwise, it's a great low-budget buy!" in 1447 reviews

Review for: Taupe more...
After trying a handful of different brands of brow pencils, NYX micro brow pencil won it for me and has become a part of my regular makeup routine. I had originally purchased the espresso shade (as my hair is a dark brown) but I found it to be a bit too rich or warm, which was a little odd considering my natural hair has warm undertones. I just think maybe the whole line just runs on the warmer side a bit, so keep that in mine. The taupe color works much better for blending into my natural brow color.

You do have to be a bit careful, as with most other pencils, not to press down too hard. It's really good for making more precise strokes, rather than using it to "shade" in or darken your natural brow. I start out by making strokes to make my thin brows appear thicker, then go back through VERY lightly to help fill in further.

The only con has to do with the brush end, as it is a bit tough. It's really only helpful to brush your hair up, not as a blending tool and I end up having to use a separate brow brush for that. My thin hair and sensitive skin might have something to do with the discomfort, but I just find that if I brush too lightly, it doesn't help blend, and if I brush harder, it just hurts and pushes the product off. Despite the brush, I would still give this pencil a 5/5 review because everything else makes up for it!

Review for: Taupe more...
I bought this pencil in the shades taupe and ash
brown. I really like how small and precise the pencil is. The packaging
is really lightweight (for me this is not a problem, but I know some
people like heavy packaging). Sometimes this product fades and sometimes
it doesn't, it really just depends what I am doing that day. I usually
like to have one brow pencil that is my actual hair color (in this case
ash brown) and one a shade lighter (in this case taupe) so I can give
the brow different dimensions, but with this pencil the one that is
supposed to be my actual color is a shade too light. If you are buying
this product definitely go a shade darker than normal. I have also read
other comments and reviews that said the pencil fell straight out of the
tube or broke easily, but this has not happened to me even if I drop
the pencil or travel with it. The reason why I don't know if I would buy
this pencil again is because it's pretty good but I want to look at
other drugstore options first. I have not tried the Anastasia or Benefit
brow pencils so I am not sure if this pencil compares to those ones.

Review for: Taupe more...
This product is absolutely amazing! I can't emphasize that enough. I had been loyal to my eyebrow pencils for years, and had no intention of ever switching, but my friend kept raving about these so I figured I'd try them out. The first time I used it, I knew there was no going back. The pencil is so thin that you're able to fill in exactly where you want. You can get lighter, more natural brows by applying less pressure, and darker, more dramatic brows with increased pressure. The taupe was the perfect color for my light brown hair (for comparison, I was using the blonde pencil in the Maybelline Expert Wear Twin Brow & Eye Wood Pencil), and I like that there are so many different colors so you can perfectly match it to your hair color. I like that it also has a spoolie attached to the end, as I had been using an eyebrow brush, but I like the spoolie a lot more. I have already gone through 4 of these (I use them everyday, so I average about 1 per every 1.5-2 months). It's definitely the closest (and best) thing you can get to a brow wiz without shelling out as much money.

Review for: Auburn more...
This pencil is everything I've been looking for. I dye my hair a bright auburn, and have tried many other pencils to try and somewhat match my hair. After trying many other brown products, this one was a keeper for me! 

I came across it at Walgreens and figured I'd give it a go. I will say that, at first use, the product was slightly stiff. But once you warmed it up it worked amazingly. The pencil is very pigmented, and after an evening of karaoke and drinking for a friend's birthday party, my brows still looked amazing! 

Even my friend's noticed a difference. My hair is naturally an ash brown color, so I was using a brown eyebrow pencil because all the other auburn pencils were just too dark. But this one, this one is now my holy grail!  NYX Micro Brow Pencil is amazing!

Review for: Espresso more...
You can build full, beautiful, natural brows with this brow pencil. It’s very precise and it coats even the finest hairs with color for a natural-looking finish. The tip is really fine and thin (hence the name “micro brow pencil”), which is ideal for creating precise and hair like strokes. The pigmentation is great and the formula doesn’t clump. I use this brow pencil for an everyday and natural look. It’s a quick application for when you’re in a time crunch to get ready. I love the spoolie that’s on the other end, it helps to brush your brows and quickly blend everything out. It does kind of wipe off/fade a bit throughout the day. I’ll never stop purchasing this product! I love it as much as Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz®.

Review for: Brunette more...
Maybe I am just not a "pencil person," but I was highly disappointed in this product. I had high expectations from the glowing reviews. This product has good pigmentation, which is why I didn't give it one star.
On the other hand, my pencil did not come with the spoolie (which I could get over if that was the only issue), but it was also incredibly difficult to use. It was so long it was awkward to hold. This made it impossible to make my brows look nice. I do NOT recommend this product. I think I will stick to powders and pomades... 
Also note: The brunette color is very warm (it kind of has a red tint/undertone, if you don't have hair that is red or under-toned red- you should probably try the color espresso, or black.

Review for: Other more...
I struggle with eyebrows for years, and it’s so hard to find a product that isn’t too harsh looking on the face but is still noticeable when you put it on. All the products I used would crumble and break apart. I decided to try this since it’s supposed to be a dupe for ABH Brow wiz. I love this product to the moon and back. I use it everyday, I have such great control over the product and I don’t even have to clean my brows up afterwards. It applies so smooth and even, and it doesn’t leave my brows looking too bold or harsh. I have darker brows and I use the shade ash brown. I will purchase this product again and again and again.

Review for: Brunette more...
I bought this product because many people were saying that this was a dupe to the ABH brow wiz and I have to say I think it is. It is slim just like the ABH brow wiz and is definitely pigmented. I do want to say though that I picked the wrong color. On my eyebrows, it looks a bit reddish so once I use this one up, I will buy either espresso or black to match my brows. Despite it being the wrong color, I really like this product. It really fills in my brows nicely and I love the spoolie on the end. It distributes the product evenly and its harsh on my brows when I do spoolie them. I really really like this product. It is worth the buy.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!! This brow pencil is amazing. I lightly line my brows. Then I fill them in. I start light at the front then I darken as I go towards the small pointy end of the brow. I only go by my natural shape. I never try to shape them. Plus the shades are spot on. I use ash brown. It’s a great neutral brown. It’s less ashy then ABH brow whiz. Plus it’s half the price of ABH brow whiz. The only con is that there is product still left in the bottom but you can’t get to it. It seems like a waste.

Review for: Espresso more...
This is now my go to brow pencil. It is very thin for more precision, comparable to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz® and a bit better than the L’Oréal Brow Stylist Definer pencil (which I found to be quite waxy).
It glides on smoothly and it is a fairly quick process.
I will say that the shade Espresso is not nearly as dark as I thought it would be, it’s more on the warm side of dark brown. If you need a cooler tone almost black brown, choose Black.
Definitely worth the money, usually less than $10. With thin brow pencils like this, you do go through them fairly quick if you do your brows every day.
The app Hush (for shophush) has this currently on sale for under $8. Walgreens also has points deals on Nyx as well!

My eyebrows are thick and I like to fill the Arch just a little bit and I heard good opinions about this product , so should I try it ??

I was wondering if is it just me or anyone else, but It seems like this formula is very dry. I really like the fact that this brow pencil is very slim, but formula isn't good. Every time when I tried to put it on I'll have to press it hard onto my eyebrow skin just for it to show up. I have it in the color taupe, can anybody tell me if in the other color is the formula dry?
