second, this guy last all day (especially when set with a brow gel, i use colourpop clear brow gel) third, the price, it's a much cheaper alternative to benefit or abh

for a full and complete look, i lightly outline and fill in sparse areas of my brows with the ashbrown, brush out with the attached spooley, fill in with the taupe, and brush out again

i'm in the process of growing my brows out, so i don't have super thin/thick brows, and the arch on one is missing, so it's difficult for me to fill them in/shape them

i used to use the tarte waterproof brow mousse, which i love and will continue using, but sometimes i can't spend more than a minute on my brows and this just does the trick in a minute for me

- Ulta User

its definetly not water proof or super pigmented like a gel but for me it works great to create natural looking hairs on my brow and fills in not too strong

I love this brow pencil because it’s great if you aren’t professional and looks very natural. I also use it with the Nyx Control Freak Brow Gel so it stays on very long. The only problem is if you get the wrong shade and apply it outside of where your eyebrows are, it looks very unnatural. I use spoolie to get my brows in the right shape and then I fill them in.

New Holy Grail Brow Product!

I bought this recently after eyeballing it for forever and I'm so glad I did! My old brow pencil from another brand was too thick and only came in three shades, but the Micro Brow pencil has so many shade options to choose from! Not to mention that the NYX pencil is super skinny, precise, and never puts out too much pigment (unless you really press down hard onto it). You can use it to create natural, even brows but you can also use it to create something more glam and dramatic. Would definitely recommend giving it a try!

Great Brow Pencil!

Easy for precise application, very good value, lasts all day. The colors are pigmented and the pencil is easy to work with.

I Can Finally Make My Eyebrows Even!

This is so easy to use. I'm by no means an expert at doing my eyebrows, and I have thick, dark eyebrows that can be difficult to apply product on top of. This pencil is perfect. It's very precise with a tiny tip, and it's easy to control the pigmentation with lighter/heavier pressure. It lasts all day and has never once smudged on my oily skin.

Didn't hold up

I've heard great things about this product and was excited to try it out. I currently use benefit or ABH pencils which are amazing but expensive. So the prospect of finding the same quality and saving money was very appealing. However.. I didn't find this product comparable to higher end pencils. Some positives.. It was beautifully pigmented and went on easily. But unfortunately by the end of an 8 hour work day my brows were all patchy where most of the product had worn off. As it gets hot outside I imagine it's only going to wear away quicker. If you only need brows for a few hours or have the opportunity to touch up throughout the day then this product would be great. I unfortunately need my makeup to stay put all day and this fails to do so.

Okay so many products tagged! Lol i used the nyx lipstick in shade soft spoken. I used the elf concealer as eyeshadow primer and to cut my crease. I used the darkest shade in the naked 3 palette for the outer corner and underneath the eye. From the morphe palette, shade visible on brow bone and inner corner, shade belladonna on the lid, and shade cabernet in the crease. From jeffeee star, controversy in the crease as well and blended out with exposed. For highlighter, i used fire from the tarte palette as well as sculpt to do the contour. The ciate london was used to set the concealer while the milani powder was used to set the rest of the face. Then i used the darkest shade from the milani blush set. Phew! That was a lot but i wanted to cover everything lol

Ok so I’m a student and I like to wear a minimal amount of makeup (mascara, concealer, highlight, and brows) that isn’t too heavy. I’ve been searching for the right products for a long while now and I can’t seem to find anything. You see, I’m not very talented when it comes to makeup, and I do t exactly know what to do. Like with my brows, how????? I’ve been using gel and I just can’t seem to get it right. My concealer just does not do the job when concealing my under eye bags, but in all fairness they’re very prominent and dark. I should also mention I’m allergic to anything with aloe vera in it. So I’m pretty picky with what I wear out of the house. I’d really appreciate some recommendations or advice! :)

When I first started using concealer it never seemed to change my under eyes at all. Until I I applied a generous amount and let it sit there for a few seconds, instead if going right into it. Because if it’s slightly tacky it won’t all go into the beauty sponge but I’m sure about using a brush or your hands. Also make sure to powder your concealer afterwards I usually jus use a cheap one that’s similar to my tone. I recommend the eyebrow pencil bc it’s really small and precise and you can creat your own shape but biggest tip is just follow your natural brow shape. It may help to get it waxed or tweezed first to clean it up. :)

So Im a makeup beginner and I’ve been wondering what to use for my eyebrows. They are mostly full but have sparse ends. I’m best with pencil but it sometimes may rub off by the end of the day and pomade and I are not the best of friends (I guess because I don’t really know how to use it?) Could anyone recommend some good products at a good price? (I’m a high school student and I’m very much broke ;-;)

I really like the NYX microbrow pencil, it is just as good as the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencils but is a lot cheaper.

I absolutely love this pencil. It’s tiny so you can make realistic looking brow hairs with it. My eyebrows look natural with pencil. It lasts awhile too. I’ve been using it for a couple years.

NYX micro brow pencil is a DUPE. Seriously I was looking for a dupe to the ABH brow wiz, and I ended up loving the NYX one (plus the price) and have actually never gone back to the brow wiz just because they both last about the same amount of time and you just can’t beat the price. The quality is completely there, the fine tip, and the color payoff. It doesn’t bleed either! GET IT, you won’t regret it!
