Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Can't live without it
I had to write a review after seeing the poor reviews. This is a daily essential for me. I have purchased several of these and never had a problem with them breaking. This pencil is so easy and quick to use and looks so natural. Best brow pencil I've ever used. Color matches perfectly and has a handy built in grooming brush.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cleosmom Great product!
This product goes on smoothly and blends well. The tip is thin which helps with the application. You have to be careful not to advance it too far as it will break off. I try to keep an extra one in my purse for after my workouts. Makes me feel together even after the most intense workouts!
Rated 2 out of 5 by MM Disappointing
It broke my second time using it. The pencil snapped right down to the bottom of the dispenser. Very poorly made. The pencil itself is good, however the dark is not as dark as I hoped. I prefer the eyebrow powder in chesnut. PLEASE BRING BACK THE CHESNUT EYEBROW POWDER!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracyw Design is Flawed - Doesn't Seem Worthy of the Bare Escentuals Name
I wanted to like this brow pencil and thought I would after the makeup artist in the store used it on me. However, the first time I tried to use it at home, the lead broke as I twisted it out. That went on to happen several times since then. Additionally it has broken as I used it on my brow. I feel like the design is flawed, mainly with the lead being far too thin to hold up during normal use. Unfortunately, I will need to use something else until this product is made more reliably.
Rated 4 out of 5 by angelcake805 Looks so natural
Looks so great once applied. Having a brush on the end is a plus. No issues with tip breaking, just don't push it up all the way. Wish it lasted longer, but the look of it is perfect and it lasts all day
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Needs to improve quality. Minimal longevity.
I've tried many brands and types of eyebrow pencils and powders and this was by far the worst, which was quite disappointing I might add.
I've bought the pencil 2 separate times. The first time the color snapped off in the tube, not being used inside my makeup bag. I had that pencil for maybe 3 weeks and then switched to a different brand.
The second time I purchased, thinking I'd give it another shot, it kept snapping apart in use. Lasted a month at best. The pencil is too thin.
I can't even give this 2 stars after 2 unsatisfactory experiences with the product. Please improve quality!!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by OregonGirl Sustainability should warrant more thought with this product
Great product; long lasting, perfect color, would love to give it 5 hearts.
The reason for 3 hearts is the product lasts about 2 months at best, but more importantly, the applicator appears it could be refillable. In this world of sustainability, it seems wasteful to use something once and throw it away. It would be great marketing on the company's part to offer refills at a reasonable price. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the applicator, yet it gets thrown away. Be more sustainable and help the environment instead of adding to the pile.
Rated 4 out of 5 by abax97 love this product, hate how easily it breaks
I love how this product works and how great it makes my eyebrows look, but twice now I've had to buy a new one because it broke off inside the pencil and would no longer extend. It's frustrating having to buy a new one with how expensive the product is.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pooka8 I love the functionality, hate that it runs out and/or breaks
I love this pencil, the light color the first that I've found that looks natural for me. It blends well and goes on easilky. I'd love to give it a 5 rating, but I can't because it has other issues.
Twice now I've gone to use it to discover that the color snapped off inside the tube and it's completely gone. I don't recommend it for travel because it's too delicate and too expensive to replace regularly. Lesson learned, keep a backup unless you want to sport bare brows until you can get to the store.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Semi love
Love the product. I use eyeliner and brow liner daily. I have my eyeliner still but went through two of these. I haven't re purchased thinking how much do I spend for such a small amount , that or maybe the twist broke going up and there is more I can't get to. Anyway I love it, till I run out two days before payday and Thinking I just bought one last check.
