Born Pretty Store Eyebrow Pencil Review

The latest product I've been testing out it this Born Pretty Store Long Lasting Eyebrow Pencil, since I've had a greater interest in brow products lately. I never used to do much to my brows because they are already very thick naturally, but in the past few months I've seen how putting more effort into my brows can really transform my look.

Born Pretty Store Eyebrow Pencil
Price: $2.95
4 shades: gray, dark brown, coffee, black
Available on bornprettystore.com


This product comes in pencil form, except it has a thread which can be pulled when you want to peel away the wood and release more product. No pencil sharpener is needed! This is also a huge pencil! I don't think I've ever had a makeup pencil this long (about 7 in/17.5 cm).





From the swatches below, you can see that this product isn't crazy pigmented, which is actually nice since it's a brow product. It's very easy to avoid the Permanent Marker brow look with this!


Since the product has "long lasting" in the name, I was sure to pay attention to the lasting power, and I found that it lasts 8+ hours before starting to fade. I think this amount of time is really good, and it lasts even longer when I set this with brow gel. It's also nice that this pencil is good for any brow look I'm going for, whether it's bold, defined brows or natural brows.

I really like this brow pencil, and it's all I've been using everyday. I was using brow powders for a little while, but this pencil lasts better throughout the day. And I love the amount of product you get for such a low price. I think the only think I would improve on this product is making the tip pointier, but I really have no major issues with this pencil.

Do you like to do your brows daily? What do you use?

  2. Well it definitely looks natural! I use the MUFE Aqua Brow Gel but sometimes I use a pencil as well when I want extra definition. This reminds me that I need to pop over to the spa and get my brows threaded! lol

    1. I really like getting my brows threaded! It's time I got them done again though... thank goodness I can hide some of the stray hairs with concealer!
