Ah yes, eyebrows — the window frames of the face. They’re one feature that has the ability to define and transform your appearance in minutes. While shape and fullness are often predetermined by natural growth patterns (not to mention the early 2000s Tweezerman-happy damage) there’s an easy fix to getting brows that would make Cara Delevingne proud: a brow pencil! Fake it til you make it, right?
According to the beauty sleuths of Amazon, a wow-worthy brow only has to set you back $6 thanks to Maybelline’s Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil. The budget-friendly pencil has racked up more than 3,000 perfect reviews left by shoppers who’ve added it to their makeup bags after ditching their pricier pencils.
“I spent years using a brow pomade but got tired of it drying out in the little pot so quickly. I avoided pencils since I could never find one that went on as saturated and with a creamy sort of consistency that I was used to,” said one reviewer. “Tried this on a whim since I'd seen positive reviews and thought the angled tip was pretty neat. I don't know if I'd want to use anything else ever again because I love it so much! Easy to apply, goes on smoothly, and the little brush on the end is great for evenly brushing product through the brows once they're filled in. Looks so natural and precise. So very happy to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.”
Since it’s made with a fine-angled tip, the popular pencil allows for a soft yet defined brow shape that holds up throughout the day. And since it’s available in blonde, deep brown, medium brown, and and soft brown, there’s an option suited to blend with any hair color.
“I’m always skeptical about using new makeup products but this one really works,” another reviewer added. “I came across this brow pencil and decided to give it a chance. I’m so glad I did! It’s easy to use and very precise and not harsh at all. I rarely ever have to use the spooly brush. It also lasts all day and barely smudges. I have oily skin so I expected it to just rub off after a long day, but nope! Even stays put at the gym!”
Give your brows a budget-friendly upgrade by heading to Amazon to snag the pencil thousands are swearing by.
