The 5 Best Brow Pencils For Full And Feathery Brows

The 5 Best Brow Pencils For Full And Feathery Brows

There’s something funny about the idea that two floating strips of hair can make such a significant impact on someone’s appearance. Regardless, eyebrows are arguably the most important part of anyone’s life, we mean, makeup routine. 

The good news is that thanks to tinted brow gels and treatments like brow laminations, or if you’re Chrissy Teigen, eyebrow transplants, we’re able to correct any overplucked, hairless patches and create full, fluffy eyebrows. 

Despite all the brow-building tools we have at our disposal, the brow pencil still remains the most essential. However, due to all the different shapes, formulas and shades available, finding the right brow pencil for you can be just as complex as a wizard trying to find their perfect wand. 

And while we can’t exactly yield you with Harry Potter-esque powers, we can arm you with a pencil that will deliver natural, feathered arches every time you pick it up – and what’s more magical than that?

Here are our picks for the best brow pencils in the biz.

Revlon Brow Fantasy™ 

We say: To be used individually or together, Revlon’s Brow Fantasy combines a blendable pencil on one end with a precise brush and gel on the other for a natural brushed-out brow.

You say: “I find it easy to use and it looks great. It’s a great DIY product, without the need for the salon. It’s also quite cheap which is great. I’ve put my friends into it to because they’ve been asking what I’m using. Definitely one to try!” – Jessie Newton

M·A·C Eye Brows

We say: Rated 4 out of 5 stars, the M*A*C Eye Brows pencil features a super-fine tip to mimic tiny flicks of hair for added colour, density and shape.

You say: “I love how buildable the product is. I can do simple natural brows for work and I am able to do dark bold brows for when I go out.” – Chen Mac

MUD Brow Pencil

We say: With a precision tip for seamless feathering and blending, the MUD Brow Pencil is our top budget pick for eyebrow pencils. 

You say: “It does go on easily and lasts especially if powdered over and reapplied. For the price it is worth keeping one in your handbag and car.” – Frenchy1

$5.50 at Woolworths

Maybelline New York Eye Studio Brow Precise

We say: If you’re looking for a drugstore banger, Maybelline New York’s Eye Studio Brow Precise features a precise tip that will fill in hard-to-reach gaps with natural brushstrokes. 

You say: “This product works just as good as the high end brow products I have tried. The pencil provides a smooth application and leaves the brows looking nice and natural.” – Midnightrose2929

NYX Professional Makeup Precision Brow Pencil

We say: Another multi-tasking product, the NYX Professional Makeup Precision Brow Pencil comes with a flat tip to outline eyebrow arches and to create depth with hair-like strokes. While the spoolie blends and softens, marrying your real eyebrows with the pencil.

You say: “The pigment is just right, enough to add colour but doesn’t make you look like you pasted your brows on. The spoolie is handy for brushing eyebrow hairs that are a bit out of place.” – Jupiter

  1. I have reasonable thick well shaped brows however I have had some lightening over the years and have often used my mascara wand to touch up but with RR I got Eylure DyBrow and it is excellent

  2. I looked at my brows this morning & have noticed they are looking more & more sparse. I normally use a Revlon pencil that I bought decades ago which needs to be replaced along with a clear gel to make my brows stand up because they seem to look a little sad ATM. I’m going to research some brow growing medium.

  3. I am an older woman whose eyebrows are almost non existent after various medical treatments almost twenty years ago.

    I have had my brows tattooed twice, and I am now thinking of doing this again.

    In the meantime however, I have become a fan of the brow powders that are now available. I find that with my arthritic fingers, a powder is sometimes easier to apply than a pencil.

    The only problem at the moment is that my hair is grey and I just cannot find any grey powders to suit.

    Any assistance here, much appreciated.

  4. I currently use an ABH brow pencil, but I’d love to get a tinted gel at some stage for the sake of convenience. Only problem is so many of them have big wands for such a tiny area of your face.

  5. I like the Revolution Soap Styler for taming my brows, I’ve never used a pencil for it but I have a decent sized brow and don’t feel the need to thicken or darken them.
