Hey guys! Can you believe the month is almost over?
The Micro Brow Pencil is one of the NYX’s most popular products and of course I had to try it out to see what the fuss is all about. It’s said to be a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz but of course I haven’t tried the Brow Wiz because it is insanely expensive for a brow product. The product is double ended with the pencil on side and a spoolie on the other which is pretty convenient because you don’t have to get a separate spoolie and you can continue to use it when the product has run out. This is what the brand has to say about their product:
Build full, beautiful brows with our ultra-thin Micro Brow Pencil. So precise it coats even the finest hairs with color for a natural-looking finish
It comes in 8 shades and I picked it up in Espresso, which is the darkest shade. Lately brows are all the rage and I can definitely see why because brows can make or break your look. I have pretty full eyebrows naturally and I don’t really need to fill them in but I like the look of a chiseled brow so I fill them in every time I wear makeup and it definitely makes my look more put together. The small tip makes for precise application and the small size makes it easy to grip. I fill in my brows with hair like strokes.Here I compared the micro brow in Espresso to a regular dark brown pencil that I’ve been using for a while. On top is the regular pencil and on the bottom is the micro brow pencil. The shades are pretty identical but I feel like the micro brow pencil is a little more cool – toned than the pencil I’ve been using but you don’t really notice that when I use them. The pencil is hard. I kind of expected it to be creamier, but it works. I do feel like it doesn’t show up much so I have to keep building up on it to get it to show up on my darker brows. Bare brows, no product.After filling it in with the NYX micro brow pencil. (I cleaned it up a little with concealer) my eyebrows look natural, but you can still build up til you have a more chiseled brow, if that’s what you want. Here my eyebrows look more chiseled, and I used the same pencil to achieve this look.
I really like the spoolie on the micro brow. It’s soft but very firm. Now that I’ve started to use the spoolie on the micro brow I find my regular spoolie to be a lot more abrasive and harsh.
My one gripe is the teeny amount of product you get. It’ll probably run out after about a month of daily use.
I would recommend this if you have sparse brow hairs because the outcome is always natural, and you can still carve out “instagram brows” if you wish. It’s pretty expensive, but I would definitely repurchase. In conclusion I would say the NYX micro brow pencil is revolutionary!!
