I usually buy this item in the store as it is overall cheaper, but it seems like no one ever keeps anything stocked in HEB or Ulta. I purchased online because I pretty much had no other option. The item arrived just as I expected in a decent amount of time - albeit a little on the longer side for someone impatient. The 4 stars go to the seller. The item is about a 3.5. If you have never used this product, here's what you can expect: -The color is not very opaque and the pencil is a bit on the harder side. For me, I generally prefer this. I am very heavy handed and this prevents me from getting too crazy. Some days, though, I feel like I have to work at putting it on as I have very little brow to work with. - There is not a lot of product. I received this item in mid-late April. It's is June 10th and I am completely out after using it almost every day. This is the third time I've purchased this pencil and it's the same story every time. - The fine point allows you to be precise and fake the hair that isn't there. I've used another one of NYX's brow pencils, and it was so big I was always having to wipe away some (again, heavy handed).
If you suffer from giving yourself Rhianna brows, give it a go. If you like a thicker, creamier, more opaque pencil, stay away.
This is a great brow pencil, especially for the price! It is very easy to apply, not too hard or too soft, and the color is perfectly pigmented. I am really happy with this purchase and will continue to buy this brand! There is no need to spend a ton more money on sephora brand-type brow pencils when this one works just as well!
Best eyebrow pencil I have EVER tried -- in any price range. The color is great; it's ash-toned, like my hair. So many brown brow pencils have red or gold tones, which just looks weird. It doesn't need to be sharpened, yet it keeps a fine point. Lasts all day. My Holy Grail of brow pencils.
This is not exactly a dupe for the Anastasia one. Same shape, but the crayon part is waxy and slippery like, making it slightly more difficult to do your eyebrows. I'm not a pro, so I prefer dryer texture like the Anastasia one. This also rubs off easily. However, even better is the Kate Kanebo eyebrow pencil, I'll be going back to that one.
I used to use a precise eyebrow pencil from Maybelline which I thought was fine but it is annoying that you have to sharpen it all the time and it gets goopy. BUT this brow pencil is amazing! I will never go back to that other pencil. This is easy to control and will get you the perfect look!
This thing is so great. I looked up swatches of the different colors to pick the right one for me, usually its a safe bet to go a shade or two lighter than your hair color, and this worked out perfectly. The pencil may not be super fine tip because its a wind up, but I think its definite sufficient and so much less waste than a traditional wood one. Much faster to apply than powder and eliminates the need for brow wax, in my opinion. The spooly on the opposite end makes this super convenient for travel as well.
