Eyebrow pencil for blonde hair / lightish eyebrows

Apologies if this has already been covered recently! I’m looking for an eyebrow pencil to define my mousy blonde eyebrows. I’m not keen to make them darker, however all of the ‘blonde’ eyebrow pencils I have tried so far all seem to leave a very warm almost orangey tone which looks ridiculous! I’ve seen Laura Mercier mentioned previously but the reviews seem to suggest the formula may have changed. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

I have the Charlotte Tilbury one which is fab. I think the one you want is the Rita shade. It's the colour I have for dark blonde hair and looks natural.

Thank you, I will look out for that one. Ideally would like to try it in person rather than buying online so need to find a local stockist.

I have a blonde one from Revlon. Don’t think it’s orangey at all. I’ve also had one from Clinique in the past too and liked it (but Revlon is cheaper Blush)

I’ve got a Bobbi Brown one which is pretty good.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe, perfect colour for my blonde hair Smile

Inexpensive at £2.79 but Collection do a good one.

Another vote for the NYX taupe. It’s my HG shade.

I have blonde eyebrows so i use the Clinique superfine liner for brows in Soft Blonde.
It's £15.50.

Nyx taupe or hourglass soft brown (lighter and less warm than the blonde one).

I'm not sure about blonde (i'm a darker shade of mouse) but the best affordable eyebrow pencils I've found are Smashbox, Benefit (the pencil with brush at one end, not the faffy palette) and also a £7 one from Maybelline called Brow Fibre.

I use Benefit goof proof brow pencil in shade 1. Perfect match.

Steer clear of NYX in blonde, it's properly orange. I will try taupe though.

L'Oréal pencil in blonde looked khaki on me!

hollieberrie · 13/09/2018 08:53

I didnt get on with the NYX one at all. Very orangey on me.

After trying soooo many I now also use Benefit Goof Proof in Shade 1, very happy with it.

Thanks for all the suggestions, definitely willing to try budget options too.
