Frame & Define: Brow Styler - null
Bring back the powder
I have very light brows and loved the powder, finally found after years of searching for something that looked natural. So disappointed it is discontinued. Will not even consider switching to a pencil. Have not liked a lot of your changes, and am thinking about moving away from Bare Minerals altogether after years of it being my ONLY makeup line.
Not the same
This pencil is not a good replacement for the brow powder! PLEASE put the eyebrow powder back into production. The pencil is difficult to use and the pigmentation is not a great as the powder.
Best brow pencil!
I love this product. I have tried every pencil, powder and gel, and none of them worked on my sparse, wiry brows. This pencil is the best. And the 'universal dark' matches my hair color better than any other brown. Other pencils are either too red or too black.
I really don't understand all of the negative reviews, especially the ones that state they never used the product and never will. It doesn't seem fair to count those in the overall rating.
Really Great Product!!!
I loved the brow powder too, but when I saw this brow pencil I just had to try it and I've never gone back to powder. I just follow Leslie's suggestion to draw light lines - like individual hairs - wherever I need coverage. I find that applying the product in this manner provides a more natural-looking brow - instead of one that is shaped with an eyebrow stencil. I have black brows and I find that the light color blends in better and produces a more natural brow. After spending years and years plucking my eyebrows - and sometimes removing more hairs than I should have - this product covers my mistakes and lets me have the beautiful brows I was aiming for all along.
Missing the Strawberry Honey Blonde powder!
The brow color powder was perfect and natural looking. Especially enjoyed the Strawberry Honey Blonde color.
Using Shadows Instead
I'm giving this 2 stars based on other reviews, and the fact that I have always hated eyebrow pencils. I haven't tried it and don't plan to. When I first started using Bare Minerals years ago, I wasn't using anything on my brows, but during a visit to Sephora I tried the brow powder, and was hooked! Now I go to buy more (it lasted forever), and find Bare Minerals has removed it from their product line. What?!?!?!?!?!?! Im so disappointed. I can only hope that with all the negative reviews of the pencils, and the pleas to bring back the powder, BE will bring them back. In the meantime, I decided to try using some of the dark browns I have in my palettes and collections (7 Ways to Bare). Today, I used Boardroom in the Ready 8.0 Power Neutrals collection, and it's beautiful! I actually like it better than the Auburn brow powder I had been using. So, just in case they don't bring the powders back, and if you're currently looking for something else that you like as well as the brow powders, try eyeshadow! I would think with the range of light to dark colors BE has, blondes to dark haired ladies can find something that works. Good luck!
Bring Back brow POWDER!!! please
The brow powder was prefect-many of my family,close friends and co-workers never even knew I used anything on my brows, because the powder looked natural. This pencil does not.
Plus I have really sensitive skin and never had a problem with allergic reacations with the powder.
Many of the new products I am finding I am allegric to; like the ready foundation, and ready blush and the around the clock eyeliners.
I have been a faithful customer snce 1998 and I am now worried I will need to find a new brand. Before Bare Minerals I had to stop wearing make up all together since Almay and Clinque I still reacted too.
Please do not forget your repeat customers.
BRING BACK THE BROW POWDER!
This is just like every other brow pencil... horrible. Why would you get rid of the brow powder. WHY? It was such a good product. Truly disappointed with Bare Minerals lately...
I love this! A friend of mine introduced me to this. I noticed her eyebrows were always so flawless and asked her what she used. I was a little scared of looking like I used a sharpie on my face but it has worked wonders for me. I have a scar on my eyebrow that prevents hair from growing there and this blends well enough to cover this up. With this pencil you can barely see the naked eyebrow section and it looks natural.
I actually like it...
I bought this my first time in a BE boutique before reading all of these negative reviews. I am blonde and my eyebrows are SUPER light, so I am always looking for new products to make them stand out more. I bought the pencil in taupe about 3 months ago, and I have never had a problem with it breaking, and I have plenty left even after using it every single day for 3 months. I don't think it's a terrible purchase! I only gave it 4 stars because I wish there were more shades available.
