Beauty Product Review ~ e.l.f. Brow Pencil

My current brow pencil (by Maybelline) bit the dust last week when I was attempting to sharpen it one last time. It was tiny and I should have seen it coming, but it still shocked me when the tip broke off and it couldn’t be saved because the end got stuck in the sharpener. Anyway, I needed a new one. So I went to the store. I’d planned on buying the same brand that I have been using for the last couple of years, but while browsing the beauty aisles, I found a few brands of brow pencils that were significantly cheaper than my regular. I bought one by Wet N Wild (which I’ve yet to try) and one by e.l.f. The reason I haven’t tried Wet N Wild is because I opened e.l.f. first and am in love with it!!

I don’t have terribly needy brows, but they do benefit from a little help, especially near the ends where hairs are somewhat sparse.

I really had no idea what to expect from the new pencil because the tip is completely covered by a white cap (a mistake, if you ask me). When I opened it, I was definitely surprised to see that it is a twistable pencil, with no sharpening necessary!

And then I used it and was further impressed. The tip is soft, and it “writes” like a fine pointed crayon. The pigment is wonderful, too. The only thing that is still to be discovered is the length of the pencil since I cannot see inside (and I don’t want to risk messing up it’s twistability by over twisting).

It goes on smoothly and the brush on the opposite end blends the marks really nicely. I will absolutely be repurchasing this brow pencil! I paid $2 for it instead of the normal $7 I was spending on a product that I didn’t even really love but had thought necessary at the time!

P.S. This is not a sponsored post. I am simply sharing my experience because I think it might benefit someone.

Do you have a favorite brow pencil?

    1. That’s good! I’ve offered the w&w pencil to Maggie since I’m (more than) happy with e.l.f. :)
      I have their blush pallet and I’ll be trying the contour pallet next. ^_^

  1. I have one from H&M beauty but am always afraid to wear it and look too fake!! It’s one of those makeup products that scares me. Like contouring, or eyeliner or bronzer, or highlighter lol I must watch some YouTube videos lol

  2. It looks great! I have been using a NYX brow kit that is applied with a brush and it is okay, but I feel like my eyebrows look a little smudgy and undefined. I have been wanting to go back to a brow pencil! The last one I used was MAC and I LOVED IT but it was also like $22.

    1. Thanks! ^_^
      I really like using a pencil because I feel like it produces a natural look whereas other options look a little more “made up.” Yeah, if you bought and liked this one, it’d save you $20!! I’ve heard great things about MAC, especially their lipstick. 😍
