Frame & Define: Brow Styler - null
Natural color, poor applicator.
This pencil goes on smoothly and the color is gorgeous! However, the pencil (applicator) is horrible! As soon as I used it, the color (lead) fell right out of the tube. It goes back in easily, but you can't use the brush at the opposite end because the lead will fall out. So like what many other people have stated in their reviews, this product is beautiful. But they really need to fix the design.
This brow pencil works well to quickly fill in your brows. I would not pay full price for this which is why I took off a heart in the rating, but give it a try if there is a sale! I am Asian with pretty thick brows already so I got the darker color. The PROS is that it's easy, fast, and natural. The CONS is that it's somewhat pricy, only comes in 2 shades, and doesn't come with a cap. It does have a twisting mechanism to it which makes it fast to use, but for sanitary reasons, it should come with a cap.
breaks too easily
The color of the pencil and the way it looks so natural on my brows keeps me hoping that the next one I buy will not break. The pencil just broke and I need to buy a new one. I wanted to look at reviews to see if it was just me or if the pencils were faulty. Seems others have the same problems. The first time the color fell out of the pencil before I even used it so I took it back to the store. I was told I had to hold it vertical, tip up, to keep it in. #2 broke after only a few uses so back to the store I went. Employee seemed exasperated with me and implied I wasn't doing it right. Now with this one breaking and looking at the reviews, I see that Bare Minerals needs to improve this product. It should last more than a few times for $15.
Great Brow Pencil
I absolutely love this. It rolls up to just the right height. I will say that if you are not careful it can break off. I have done this before. Now i just roll the pencil up to just where i need it and it works fine. I have been using it for 2 years and love it.
I love the Brow Styler. The color works well even with my medium-fair skin and blonde hair. However, the pencil is not well made. The color breaks off long before I've had the use I paid for. I'm on my 2nd pencil in way too few uses and now am ordering another one because the color broke out of this pencil after the 3rd time used. I expose only enough at a time to color my brows. Please improve the quality of the pencil. I hate the idea of switching to another brand as I love bareMinerals. However, I definitely am not getting my money's worth from this particular product.
This is the BEST brow pencil!
I absolutely love this pencil. I have very dark brown/almost black brows. They are fairly full but I notice as I'm aging, they need a little "lift." I started with the universal dark. Loved it. I have also used the universal light and it works great as well since I only use a little.
The only down side is the the pencil does not last long at all! It breaks very easily, but it's true that if you keep very short, it won't do that often. Because of a $15 pencil lasting me for only two months max, I have tried numerous others. No comparison. This is the only one that looks perfectly natural!
Love product, but unreliable
I love the product and how it fills in my brows! But I've already been through 4 since November and it's only March! First the top kept breaking off and I went in and the lady told me to keep it as low as I could while applying and that worked. Then the led fell out and got lost in my makeup bag so that wasted a couple of them. Maybe if it had a lid or something it wouldn't get lost as much! I love the product when it's not breaking or getting lost....
Love this easy to apply brow definer. I am cursed with almost no eyebrows and this allows me to pencil them in with confidence. Am hoping this product stays in the line-up.
Great product...Poorly designed
This pencil reconstructs your brows and gives your makeup application the finished look that you want every time; problem is, the pencil is not made well and I often loose the makeup...finding it on my bed, floor,etc. Since my first purchase in November 2014, I'm on pencil #3:(
I am a redhead, and I have found that it is very difficult to find brow pencil colors that blend well with my hair color and complexion. The universal light does just the trick. It is very easy to apply and has really helped me to shape my eyebrows. I hope this product has a permanent place in the inventory because I LOVE IT!
I was in your boutique with a friend, a clerk asked if she could re-do my brows. She selected the "light" color for me. Gave me tips on how to apply and I am happy with the product. I use a diagonal position when holding the pencil, with slight amount of tip showing. I am on my 3rd pencil, have not had any breakage and find the pencil lasts a long time. I like to use a slight amount of powder along with the pencil to create a softer appearance.
I love this pencil!
I tried the brow powder but like this pencil so much more - so easy to apply and looks great. I do wish it lasted longer, but I never want to be without this!
Perfect for my needs
Although my hair has not been allowed to go gray :), my eyebrows are graying and thinning, so I was looking for something to make them look even and filled in. I have the powder eyebrow makeup, which works great when I'm all glammed up, but it's way too color-saturated to wear when my eye makeup is minimal. I've been waiting a long time for this to be available in stores, and I have not been disappointed. The very fine tip makes for a very natural fill-in, and the color is intentionally neutral. My hair is medium brown and I use the Dark pencil, which I would describe as medium ash brown.
I'm glad the brow powder is back (I think it matched my brow color a bit better), but I grew to really like the brow pencil. I feel like I have a little control over the shape of my eyebrows. Glad that both options are available now!
Definitely grew on me
When I first purchased this I did not like it. It wasn't terrible, but I still didn't like it. I decided to stick with my BM brow powder (even stocking up on it when it was dc'ed for awhile). I'm not sure how I transitioned into absolutely loving this product, but I did! I may have been pressing the pencil too hard. I think it took me being lazy a few mornings and that is when I fell in love. It is soo much easier to use this brow "pencil" than my sometimes messy brow powder. The tiny point makes it easy to be precise and it glides on smooth and easy. Now I don't use anything but this product on my brows! Definitely stocking up on this beauty and sooo glad I gave this a couple of more tries!
Good look, bad product
I liked how this pencil looked and the lighter color matched my brows perfectly. HOWEVER, I only got a hand-full of uses out of this because the tip kept breaking off. Unless the tip is barely out, it snaps right off every time. So, it's already gone, which made it very much a waste of money. It's disappointing because, if it weren't for that design flaw, I would definitely purchase this product again.
I never use to do my eyebrows til this product! Its so easy and simple to use. I bought a bunch of make-up for my wedding and this is one of the products they recommended for me! It makes a huge difference! try it and you will love it!
I have used a lot of eye brow products. This is by far is the most natural looking product. It does the job. I do not care for the powder version. I like the control of the brow styler. I use the dark and it is a perfect match. Please, do not discontinue. I see your have brought back the brow powders, but keep the brow styler, too. What happened to the brow gel?
I am a redhead. Only 2 colors and neither look natural. This is ridiculous. I want my color bak,
HATE IT! Please bring back the powder!!
I really wish you guys would bring back the powder! The pencil doesn't give me the same look, I go through it SUPER fast, where the powder lasted me forever! I gave it a try but I am going to have to find a powder from a different brand if you guys don't bring it back and that make me sad because I have been a happy customer for years.
I love it!
I use this product 24/7. Its super easy to use and to blend. Although I wish there was more product in it. They should make something with a little more than what it has now so you don't have to keep buying it because it gets expensive. But overall, I love it.
I want it back
PLEASE bring back the eye brow powder and gel. I hate pencil type brow liners and can never make them look right, unless I want to look like a clown. I always get compliments on the way my brows look with the powder and gel, It was easy to apply and to get great results. If it is not brought back, you've lost another customer. Thank you for your consideration of mine and others who request the return of the brow powder.
This product is so dissapointing.
This is the FIRST dissapointing product from Bare Escentuals.
Just bring back the brow powder!!!
Miss the powder
Why, oh why has the brow powder been discontinued??!!!??? The pencil doesn't even come close to being as good... Found recently that many of my favorites have been discontinued and have used Bare Minerals since 2006. Very disappointed!
Better than A.B.H
I have dark brown hair with dark eyebrows. I started off using Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil, but noticed it ran out pretty fast and I wasn't a fan of how it glided on. When i first tried this, I loved the pencil because it's a great color and lasts a lot longer. The crayon/pencil is a perfect texture and provides a nice thin line. I was so shocked to see so many 1 star reviews!! My only complaint would be that I wish it lasted longer =)
Lasted about a week...
I was not impressed at all with this product. First off the pencil doesn't have a lid, so if you're on the go all the time like me this is NOT the product for you! After one day the product broke and I found it in the bottom of my makeup bag; it broke off in one piece so I was able to continue use by putting it back into the styler. I had to keep the "brow styler" in the box it came in so it wouldn't get everywhere and rub off in my makeup bag. I was able to use it like this for about a week, until it just completely broke again and I was unable to use it. I will say that I really like the idea of the product, however it needs a lot of improvement.
Highly disappointed in this product!
To begin with the brow pencil doesn't go on as smoothly as it should. The brow color doesn't last throughout the day. The pencil itself doesn't last long at all! My pencil ran out after about 1 month. That is unacceptable. Please bring back the powder that I loved!
Please please give us the powder back!!! This Brow Styler looks very artificial and you can't get a natural looking brow no matter how skilled you are. I can get a better look with an old pencil.
PLEASE Bring Back the Powder!!
I was a long time user of the brow powder and LOVED it. When I visited my local store to refill, I discovered (to my dismay) that the powder had been discontinued. Why why why??? The sales rep convinced me to try the pencil, and I couldn't be more disappointed. It went on "okay", but not nearly as natural looking as the powder. It also took forever to fill in my eyebrows compared to the quick powder application. Since it only comes in two shades, the pencil doesn't come close to matching my eyebrows as well as the powder did! The pencil also ran out extremely fast compared to the powder. I just can't understand why this product has replaced the powder, which clearly worked so well and so many Bare Minerals users loved. PLEASE BRING BACK THE POWDER!!!
Definitely NOT my powder brow color
I recently tried this product after discovering my powder brow color had been discontinued. Not only was I disappointed in the two color choices, (I have auburn hair and the light is too light while the dark was too dark.) I was disappointed in how the brow pencil looked on me. My husband even said it looked like sharpie marker, even though I had applied it very lightly and the color was way too dark.
The powder pots of brow color have been one of the reasons I have continued using Bare Minerals product since 2005, and it is a shame that they have discontinued this fantastic product. Now I have to go on a mad search to try and find something close to my hair color in another brand to try to match what was once so perfect of a product for me. PLEASE BRING BACK THE POWDER EYE BROW COLOR!!!
