Frame & Define: Brow Styler - null
Argh Bare Escentuals! How could you do this?! Deleting the brow powder was a major mistake. Replacing it with this brow pencil was just insane. I gave the pencil a chance and was majorly disappointed.
The coverage is not as natural, it doesn't last very long and the color is off.
Bring back the brow powder!
bring back my powder</3
I always had trouble with my brows because I have such light eyebrows compares to having dark dark brown hair. I went into the store and they showed me the powder and I absolutely fell in love. I was running low so i drove an hour and a half to the nearest store and come to find out they discontinued it!! I was SO irate, but since I love your makeup I got the new "brow styler" I am so miserable with it that I save the little powder I have left for special occasions. I am so disappointed with the styler I honestly wouldn't recommend it for anyone.
For the sake of redheads, bring back the powder!
This is the first review of a product I've ever written, but I am so mad about the discontinuation of the powder that I had to do something! If I could give this product zero hearts, I would. My daughters and I are redheads and we used the strawberry blonde shade of the powder, which blended wonderfully with our reddish brows. The supposedly universal shades now available are woefully inadequate for redheads. My brows are the wrong shade and look unnatural and drawn on, regardless of how much I use that blending brush--you can't fix the wrong color with a blending brush! I was advised at one of the boutiques to try to find an eye shadow color to match the the old brow powder, but I couldn't find one. I know redheads are a small percentage of the population, but don't we deserve to look like natural beauties too?
Please bring back the brow powder!!!
WHY would you discontinue an amazing product like the brow powder and replace it with such an un-natural, un-flattering pencil?!? This pencil is nothing like the natural coverage and look that I could get with the brow powder, no matter how much I blend with a brush. I'm so disappointed and now have to begin my search for other brands that still make brow powders and just hope I can find a color that matched as well as the BE powder did. :(
Bring BROW POWDER Back!
I went today to the local bare minerals store today to get a refill of my brow POWDER only to find out it's been discontinued! But wait...we have a pencil the clerk tells me! I don't want a pencil. There's a reason I don't use a pencil. It doesn't look natural. I don't get consistent results. The colors never match. I don't want to look like I painted on my eyebrows. I want my brow POWDER back!!! It's the only way I get consistent, full, and natural looking brows with less effort. The dark blonde/medium brown was perfect for me; it filled in my black eyebrows without darkening them or being off color! Ever since I started using the brow POWDER a year ago, I got so many compliments not just on my fantastic brows but on my overall look! It helped to pull everything together! Because this product was discontinued, I've had to find a similar brow powder from another company. I'm so upset by this that I'm discontinuing my entire bare minerals face regiment (10+ products) all together and finding another company. Why stick with a brand that doesn't stick by it's products?
Best natural brow
I'm a 58 yr old blonde, changing to light brown and some gray. I had the powder 1st, but found the brush was making the tail end of my brow too think or sloppy. LOVE LOVE the pencil. If you feather it lightly, you can make it as thin or thick evenly as you wish, I guess for some it would be nice to have the option to use both, but the pencil is my new fave.my 1/2 thinning brows just light up with this pencil. My hubby dropped it in the open position so I'm crazy to hurry and get more even though I have the powder I want the pencil, just take your time till you get the feathering down and you never switch again
Brow Powders Poor Cousin
I gave it a fair shot but I must say I truly detest this pencil. The powder gave me such lovely bows and this makes me look like I'm headed for clown school or that I have done nothing at all. Help! Bring me back my beloved powder please!
Bring back the brow powder PLEASE!
I have been using Bare Escentuals products for years and love the powder minerals and the natural look. But a brow "pencil" does not give a natural look! The brow powder was amazing - the most natural looking brows I've ever had. I used the brow powder for years and loved it. Please bring it back! Why don't you just offer 2 types of brow liners - pencil and powder? Just let the customers pick which one they like.
Please bring back the powder!
I have been using Bare Minerals for at least 10 years and was stunned to find out that the brow powder was no longer available. I took a chance on the brow pencil, followed all the suggestions on feather stroking, etc. My brows are sparse to none and this pencil just does not work for me. I have had to break my "only Bare Minerals on my face" rule and tried 3 different pencils and powders from other brands and still can't find anything that looks the same as the BM brow powder. Very disappointing!
I had a head injury when 6 years old and do not have enough hair on brows to use the powder. I have used pencils my whole life and have been waiting for BM to make this product. It is the perfect dimension, color, and consistency unmatched by other brow pencils. Recently, a fast food employee came to my table to tell me how pretty my eyebrows are. If you feather your stroke at an angle upward and out toward arch and within your brow line, the look is very natural. I love the product!!!
Please, please, please bring back the brow powder. I have found it to be THE best product for my brows. The powder makes my brows the most natural they have in many years.
Please bring back old powder eye brow product!
I didn't care for this new eye brow pencil, because I can't get a natural look like I could with the old powder brow product. Both my daughter and I used the old product and wish that you would bring it back again. It is the only brow product that I have ever used that I could actually get a natural looking brow.
Disappointed with this Product
I have used the complete line of BM products for over 5 years and been pleased with every product. That is until now. I went to a local retailer to purchase brow powder and was told the powder was discontinued replaced by a new brow pencil in two colors. They demonstrated the process for application and I read the instructions provided. I have yet to apply this product with a natural result. My eyebrows are thin and feathery strokes don't provide enough coverage. Heavier strokes and I feel like a clown or a child playing with Mommy's makeup. When I used the powder for brows, I had people comment on what nice eyebrows I had and when I told them I created them daily, they could not believe it. The various shades in the powder allowed for a better match to my hair color, which changes depending on the whim of my stylist. I don't mind trying new things and have continued to try various application techniques in hopes of achieving a natural look. I will not purchase the brow pencils again. I'm hoping to find a brow powder from another cosmetics retailer.
Best Pencil for Fine Brows
I have very fine, light brows and this pencil grabs each fine hair, darkens and defines it. The brush blends beautifully. I will say that since the tip is very thin, they mean it when they say use feather strokes. I have not broken the tip by doing just that, using light, feathery strokes. That type of application also helps provide a more natural look. I use the lighter shade. BE - please don't discontinue this pencil!!
No More Fake Looking Eyebrows
I am a make-up junkie. If there is a new product, I am going to try it. Lucky for me I found this eyebrow pencil. The spoolie brush is great to tame wild eyebrow hairs and helps to blend in the pigment for a natural look. The thinness of the pencil allows me to have super control. The application is easy. If you do not have a heavy hand, the product goes on smoothly and precisely. My only regret is that there is no auburn shade. I am sure that there are many redheads out there who feel the same.
LOOKS CHEAP AND FAKE
PLEASE BRING BACK THE BROW POWDER. I wasted $15 on this terrible pencil. It's great for Halloween if you want to look like a ghoul or Mimi from the Drew Carrey Show! This is a terrible pencil. PLEASE BRING BACK THE BROW POWDER!
I am all about trying new products. BUT I am not pleased with this new product. I really gave it a chance but miss the powder. Why don't you sell both and let people decide which they want. I don't understand why you would discontinue it when obviously it was a very good product.
This product is a disappointment. BRING BACK BROW POWDER. The reason I started Bare Essencuals was the Brow powder. Why in the world would you stop making such a wonderful product. The pencil does not give the same natural look.
I hope you will listen to your customers and bring the powder back soon!
I love love love it!!!
I am really amazed at all the women who refuse to give this new pencil a chance AND that they have been so abusive towards Leslie. I too was disappointed that the brow powder had been discontinued but life goes on and when I reached a BE salon I asked the stylist to show me how to use the new pencil and I can tell you that I was convinced from then on. I really believe in giving a new product a fair and open minded test and 99% of the time I like the new. So out with the old and in with the new. For all the negative people out there LIGHTEN UP and give it a real try!!!
Dissapointing All Around
this product was offered to me as a substitute for the brow powder which has been discontinued. I am so sad. I loved the brow powder and have used it consistently for years. this pencil is hard to control and does not give the same natural look of the powder. I tried it for two weeks and I still want the brow powder back! if it doesn't come back I will be forced to look for it in a different label. this pencil is no substitute. I will be returning it to a store.
Bring Back the Powder
I guess I'll have to shop around for a new brow powder. This pencil is horrible! Used the powder for years, as did my sister and niece. Bye, bye to this pencil!!!!
this product is very disappointing, only lasted me about a week compare to the brow powder that lasted me well over a year and costs less..this is not a product i will be buying again. PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK THE BROW POWDER!
Why oh why?????
Why on earth would you discontinue the brow powder. It is a great product and I have used it for a very long time. Pencils DO NOT look as natural as this powder. Please bring it back just like it was. Do Not change it. It is perfect!!!!!!!
I ordered this because the powder product was no longer available. I was very disappointed when it arrived & I used it for the first time. The pigment does not transfer to your skin unless you apply pressure, but when you apply pressure the pigment breaks off, as it is very thin. Essentially every time I tried to apply this, the tip would break off and I would have to roll out more of the product. It lasted me only 4 days!! At 15 dollars plus tax & shipping, this was a horrible deal, and not what I have come to expect from Bare Minerals. More product testing should have been done, and this product should never have been released as it is now.
Guess I can use it for Halloween!
I'm Very disappointed in the new brow pencils! What are these colors?? Not well suited for redheads! My brows are thinning, and these pencils make me look like I've been playing in mommy's makeup! For now I'm mixing Warmth with a little bit of dark blonde/medium brown brow powder I found in the bottom of my makeup bag. I'm playing with Warmth and brown shadows too. Please bring back the powders. They were the ONLY thing I could use during chemotherapy for cancer and come away from the mirror looking natural and normal! I shared that little secret with all of my "chemo chums" are we were(and still are) lovely! The powders look so much more "real". Please, please, please bring them back!!
Could not believe when I went to buy another dark blonde brow powder (perfect match) I was told it was discontinued! So I bought the brow pencil and what a disappointment. Difficult to apply and achieve a natural look. Color is not a good match. Also very difficult to know when a refill is needed until maybe too late. I had recently purchased a new pair of eyeglasses and was second guessing the color I chose. So I had a small amount of dark blonde eye brow powder left and realized it was the brow color that made the difference. Pencil is too harsh. Is it possible to have both the pencil and brow powder? Brow powder also had more shade choices.
Definitely NOT a good idea, BE!
I was very optimistic about this product when I purchased it but after three uses, it was a HUGE disappointment. It takes too long to apply and doesn't look natural at all -- even after I resorted to using my brow brush to smooth out the color. It's also very fragile and breaks easily and often (because some pressure is required to get the color on to your brow). Fortunately, I have one remaining Dark Blonde powder and will continue using that until it runs out. The powder is far easier to apply and looks so much more natural. BE, please don't fix a product that isn't broken!
PLEASE bring back the powder !!!
I had been using the dark blonde powder for many many years and was shocked to learn it has been replaced by this awful pencil. I purchased it to try and would like to return it, for a refund. My eyebrows are blonde and I have to 'draw' and 'draw' with the pencil and cannot get enough color on the brow. It is also more time consuming. The powder applied so easily and looked very natural. Also, why was that great eyelash builder discontinued? If you want to add a new product, that is fine but do not take away the tried and true. Like the saying goes, "If it is not broke, don't fix it !!!" Leslie, what are you thinking? Someone is giving you bad advice.
Bring back the Powder Please!!!!!!!!
This product is a waste of your money. The pencil is so thin it breaks, which causes you to lose part of the product. It does not go on easily. I returned this product to the store. Please Please Please bring back the powder!!!!!
Easy to use
It was hard to believe but this product was the exact Color for me. I never used any product for my eye brows, but since they are thining I thought I would give it a try. I thought there would be several colors to choose from. But the light works great! Easy to use and looks natural. Try it.
