At the same time, the formula works wonders mimicking brow hair, making this product great for pretty much all skin types.

Maybelline New York Total Temptation

Tempting Enough

Maybelline Total Temptation looked tempting enough to draw our attention and turned out good enough to more than make the list.

Using the pencil's teardrop tip, you'll have no issues shaping and defining the eyebrows. The teardrop-shaped applicator makes this product equally fitting for thick and thin brows. You'll be able to fill the gaps without irritating the skin.

In other words, the pencil will let you frame the eyes, fill the brows, and define the arch, making the final look completely stunning and stunningly complete.

The downside to the applicator's unique shape is that you'll sometimes have to draw twice to achieve the desired effect.

The fluffy spoolie brush will enable you to blend as softly as you want, easily achieving that ever-so-desirable natural look.

The soft brown shade looks warm and pretty mild. Apart from that shade, you can choose between blonde, medium brown, and deep brown to match the eyebrows' shade.

Last but not least, the formula's free from harsh chemicals.

In closing, considering the price, Maybelline Total Temptation is easy to recommend to most customers looking to make the eyebrows look as good as possible without investing too much money and effort into that.

e.l.f. Essential

Three for the Price of One

As slim and affordable as eyebrow pencils come, we couldn't overlook the E.L.F. Essential Instant-Lift Brow Pencil kit. First and foremost, the kit costs less than 10 bucks, which is pretty incredible considering that there are three pencils inside the kit.

Of course, the experience is always very subjective but we haven't much against this product except for the fact that deep brown shade is closer to black than brown. That being said, that's often the case with deep brown shades.

Also, the aforementioned shade is the only available shade, so we obviously wouldn't recommend this product to customers with blonde and soft brown brows. Brunettes might be able to pull it off though.

As it is always the case, the dual-sided pencil will let you apply the color using the fine-tip liner on one side, while the other side, with its spoolie brush, will allow you to tame and comb the eyebrows brows to make them look natural and well-defined.

Other than that, the pencil's really slim and comfortable to hold.

To sum this up, E.L.F. Essential Instant-Lift Brow Pencil will let you maintain the brows for quite some time, all while spending very little money on it. Make sure not to press the tip too heavily though (although the brush will usually let you blend out these areas just fine).

NYX Micro

Sculpt the Eyebrows

Using NYX Micro, you'll be able to sculpt the most beautiful eyebrows.

The company's pencil will excel at shaping, defining, and filling sparse brows and over-tweezed brows.

The tip's so thin and precise that you'll be able to coat the finest hairs, making them look fully natural and naturally full. In other words, the skinny tip draws the lines so thin and fine that you'll be able to make any brows look good. The tip's retractable too, so you won't have to worry about damaging and ruining the tip.

Eyebrow pencils these days usually feature dual-ended designs and the product's no exception to the rule. Setting the aforementioned tip aside, there's the spoolie brush that will let you tame, comb, style, and blend out the eyebrows to make them look even.

The pencil's ash brown shade looks brilliant. It is the only available shade right now though, so you will have to look somewhere else if that shade doesn't match your eyebrows.

On the bright side, the formula behind this product is vegan and cruelty-free, containing no harsh chemicals.

All things considered, NYX Micro can be used by anyone whose eyebrows' shade matches the pencil's shade. The product's accessible yet effective and efficient too.

What Is an Eyebrow Pencil?

You cannot achieve that killer look without doing the eyebrows, that's not happening. Of course, you can always pay professionals but that's not always an option. You need to be able to do it at home. You need the right tools to do it. Drugstore products will seldom get the eyebrow makeup job done.

This is where you'll find these tools. These eyebrow pencils will give you the means to outline the eyebrows. Even beginners will able to define the arch. These pencils will let you add texture and dimension to the 'brows.

More often than not, these products adopt these dual-ended designs, featuring the fine tip that will enable you to do everything we've mentioned above and the spoolie brush that will let you tame, comb, and blend out the 'brows, making them look the way you want.

Of course, you should match the product's shade with your eyebrows' shade, that goes without saying. Apart from that, the biggest difference between these pencils is usually whether the formula is waterproof or not. As you would imagine, waterproof pencils will let you sweat at the gym and go out without taking the weather conditions into account and worrying about smudges.

Eyebrow trimmers and eyebrow stencils will complete the package and allow you to make your eyebrows look flawless.
