Best Eyebrow Pencil

(25 Posts)

What is everyone's fave Eyebrow Pencil?
I spent my 20s plucking my brows till there was nothing left!
Now in my late 30's I have patchy Brows-they kind of stop in the middle so I have to pencil the rest in.
I do go and get them tinted, shaped and waxed and leave them alone in between visits and they are sloooowly growing back.
I have been using an Avon Glimmer stick but want to try other products
I have some powder and am happy with that but as there isn't much hair the powder doesn't cling so need to draw them on in places.
Is the WunderBrow worth all the hype and money?
Any suggestions will be welcome
I would like something that looks natural(as much as it is possible to do so with drawn on brows) and something that will last through to the end of the day.
Thanks

I'm a big fan of NYX powder eyebrow pencil, comes in lots of colours and gives a nicely defined brow. I am 70(!) with silver hair and like their Taupe colour which isn't easy to find in eyebrow pencils but this is the best I've found so far, and at £5.50 is quite a bargain. You do need a proper cosmetic sharpener to sharpen it though. Don't bother with their micro eyebrow pencil - it doesn't last very long.

I wouldn’t recommend wunderbrow for you as it doesn’t apply well at all to areas with sparse/no hair, just kinds of slides around and doesn’t cling to anything, it only really works on areas with hair that you’re just filling out. HD brows creme is pretty good for sparse brows, applied with an angled brow brush (mine was £4 off amazon) and stays on well once it’s applied

I like Estee Lauder's brow pencil, goes on well and I've never needed a top-up

Go to Benefit counter. They have lots of brow products and will help you find one that suits your needs. I think their brow stuff is great. Longer term you should consider microblading. It's awesome and so natural looking

It's not a pencil but i'd recommend this:

You can get as much cover as you want with it with practice and a good brush. I had the Anastasia one before this one which was ok, but i think this is a bit more creamy and easier to manage.

Another vote for microblading. Done well, it can fill in sparse brows and look completely natural.

Littlelambpeep Thu 07-Dec-17 18:31:27

I got mine microbladed. Well worth it. Going to go for a top up soon to make them thicker/darker

Any of the eyebrow stuff by Soap and Glory is amazing. Was using MAC everybrow dip pot and brush but S&G is better and half the price and do a variety of shades

Rimmel, £2.99 (maybe just went up to £3.29). Used it daily for years. Easy to use and doesn't smudge. Super cheap. Highly recommend.

This Nyx one is great https://www.nyxcosmetics.co.uk/enGB/eyes/brows/micro-brow-pencil/NYXX_181.html?cgid=brows&dwvarNYX1811_color=Taupe. Very similar to the Anastasia Brow wizz

Another vote for the NYX micro brow pencil. I normally use the Benefit one but bought this one to try it & I think I’ll buy it again

NYX is absolutely the best place to go for high-quality but low-budget brow products. If you’re looking for wunderbrow-style products when you’ve got some regrowth, I recommend giving Glossier’s Boy Brow a go, I was sceptical but have loved it

NYX Micro pencil

DanielSpaniel Thu 07-Dec-17 20:32:14

Nyx micro pencil is amazing. I use it along with the nyx pomade and my patchy, thin brows have never looked better!

JamesNesbittsLeftEyebrow Thu 07-Dec-17 20:41:04

Another vote for NYX micro brow pencil, so easy to fill in sparse patches without looking too obvious. I used it all the time until I had microblading done 6 months ago, this is definitely something to consider if you can afford it as my brows are always good to go now & I don't need to faff around every morning filling them in.

Fairylea Thu 07-Dec-17 20:48:19

Another vote for the Rimmel one. The brush on the end is amazing too.

FrankiesKnuckle Thu 07-Dec-17 20:51:49

I've used the Rimmel one for over 20 years, so recommend that - despite spending a small fortune on various others over the years.
Recently had mine microbladed and I'm not overawed with the result although I do need to go for the top up.

Another vote for NYX! I’ve tried a few of the brow products and my favourite is the brow powder pencil. Gives a soft natural look and good colour choice.

troodiedoo Thu 07-Dec-17 20:54:52

I love the rimmel one, it's foolproof

My dd has bushy brows that always look amazing and she uses anastasia beverley hills.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
I think I will give the NYX one a go...
Microblading is something I was considering but as I said my brows are slowly growing back in so am thinking I can manage just filling them in for now providing I find the right product.
Though it is still a consideration just scared it will look too obvious(scared of the huge ugly slug look)
Keep any more suggestions coming-open to all and indeed will probably try all!

The best one that I have used is actually a cheap and cheerful W7 pencil in the shade dark brown! Every other dark brown pencil I've tried (such as Rimmel , Revlon) has been too pale.

I disagree with regard to Wundabrow. I have alopecia and wouldn't be without it! I put it on on Monday, take it off on Friday, don't bother with it in-between!

beardymcbeardy Fri 08-Dec-17 17:11:16

I use wunderbrow and really like it. I have pretty sparse eybrows due to overplucking and nothing beats a good microblading. However, even this fades over time and as it is fairly expensive I use wunderbrow inbetween sessions.

I like Anastasia Brow Wiz. Fine tip that you can feather strokes of colour with and a brush on the other end. has lasted me ages but the brush snapped off in my make-up bag which was irritating as not cheap.
