Exceptional quality with a price to match

I have to tip my hat to ELF for this product. I was on the lookout for a new brow pencil and was about to buy a $10 product from another brand (it was either Rimmel or L'Oreal, I forget) when I spotted a $2 mechanical brow pencil on the ELF shelf, so I figured I'd give it a try since it was so cheap.Wow, I was very impressed with the quality of this product. The brow shaping brush end really does make a difference, much to my surprise, and this little pencil is perfect for filling in sparse brows. The mechanical aspect means you never have to bother with sharpening it and, when paired with ELF's setting spray, this liner will last all day. I wear it every day at work and it stays put from the time I apply it to the time I take it off (12+ hours). I also clean up the liner with a small angled brush for straighter, more precise lines.My only complaint is it's easy to use it up quickly! Mine was gone within a month (I use it six days out of the week, usually), so if you intend to use this liner on a regular basis, I'd just recommend stock up on two or three at once. This is definitely going to be my go-to brow pencil from now on. « less

I have mixed feelings about this product. I enjoy the convenience of the twist-pencil, and the spoolie combo. It is also pretty pigmented and shows up well. I do not, however, like how “greasy” it is, and how easy it is to smudge. Overworking with the spoolie after application can quickly result in misshapen, smudgy brows! Even touching it with my fingers after application can make things messy. It looks decent if you use a light, gentle hand when applying.

This is now my go to eyebrow pencil. I love it because it’s precise and pigmented, but not so pigmented that i look like i filled in my eyebrows with a sharpie

One of my favorite elf products

I have been using this pencil for years and I love it! Even though I have black hair, I use the color taupe and it really works great for filling in brows, but still looking very natural.The pencil is probably twice as thick as the anastasia brow wiz or the nyx micro brow pencil but many times I actually prefer it. I have all three and many times, I reach for this one over the other 2. On those days when I'm not wearing any other makeup, I'll still just quickly do my brows with this pencil, swipe on some tinted lip balm and dash out the door. The texture of this pencil is a bit softer than the anastasia/nyx pencils. I see that elf now makes a thinner version, more like the anastasia brow wiz, I think called ultra precise, which I'll try at some point, but I will always continue to use this as one of my fallback options.The only small downside is the packaging is not super sturdy. For every pencil that I've had (and I've been buying this for years), the caps do not stay on or they crack. This isn't a problem because I'm not trying to put this into a purse or anything, but sometimes when I travel, the caps do come off in my makeup bag and it's a bit of a drag. « less

Unbelievable Product for Price

For $2. you can't beat this eyebrow pencil, my brows are still not too sparse but I have greys and helps to fill in and cover where needed. Taupe is perfect for my olive complexion and heavily highlighted hair with brown low lights. It doesn't have red tones, definitely seems to stay put although not smudge-proof or waterproof. Lasts for 8+ hours in the office with some light outside work. I doubt it would hold up to a workout at the gym or heavy outside but it beats any other drugstore type products I've tried.

#seekingadvice I have white eyebrows with strawberry blonde hair and very fair skin. Is there an eyebrow pencil that will match my hair color? I have not had much luck finding a pencil to match.

i think the shade auburn or blonde will match your hair. however, you can look at the other options. i recommend this pencil. cheap and super easy to apply. just be gentle, a little goes a long way.

What’s a brow pencil that is similar to the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil? I love my benefit one but I feel like I go through it so quickly, it’d be nice to have a cheaper alternative. Preferably one with a spoolie.

I’m looking for a “cool-toned” eyebrow pencil (on the budget) because supposedly that’s my eyebrow color? Lol but please y’all help me
