When it comes to brows, everyone has their own favorite product out of the billion products out there. Whether its a brow pomade, a brow pencil, or a brow gel, everyone has their preferred method of shaping and filling in their brows.
Personally, I love brow pencils for two main reasons. 1 – They almost always come with a spooly brush which means 2 products in one. And 2 – they are just SO easy to use. There’s no extra brush involved, you just take the pencil, and outline/fill in your brows. I’m not a professional, but I have been using brow pencils for years now and if you’re a newbie, I highly suggest going this route.
My three all-time favorites high-end brow pencils are:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (full size is $21)
- it Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil (full size is $24)
- Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil (full size is $24)
But if I had to choose one, Benefit’s Goof Proof Brow Pencil is the absolute winner. I first started out with ABH’s Brow Wiz, and it did the trick don’t get me wrong (it also lasted forever, so if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, go with this one). Eventually I started realizing that the pencil is a little too skinny, which means it took longer to actually finish my brows.
That’s what makes Benefit’s brow pencil my favorite. The pencil is thicker, and slanted, so that you can actually fill in your brows with one stroke. I also really like that the color is build-able (it doesn’t come out dark immediately like the ABH brow wiz) so that if you do mess up it’s not the end of the world. it Cosmetics’ universal eyebrow pencil is the same in this sense.
The best part about Benefit’s brow pencil? It is actually budge proof just like it claims. Compared to the other two, this one really does stay on ALL day. This is absolutely essential, especially during the summer.
What is your favorite brow product? Do you have any drugstore recommendations I should try out?
