This was a great product I have used YBF or YBL and everytime i purchased it was old makeup that did work but would not last. I have also used ELF liquid eyebrow mascara to hold the brow line in place but it always makes my eyeshadow stuck to my upper lid and shiny. This product works well with its wax application that helps to shape and extend the wear of the product. A little bit goes a long way too! Love it!
This does work really well at filling in sparse brows - but the product itself didn't last long - I bought two at the time and am saving the other one for special occasions only as I don't want to run out...not sure what use the other side is for - could do without out and add more coloured pencil. I won't buy it again and that's a shame because it does work really well - just a lot of money for a little bit of product. I'm still shopping for a great long lasting brow pencil - sorry Pur Minerals - re-work this product and I'll buy again and again.
Let me start off by saying this is one of the best brow pencils I have ever used. The color is perfect (I use the espresso), goes on great, coverage lasts all day. My one problem with this pencil is...the description says this is self-sharpening, but it really is not! When I bought the pencil, both ends had a nice thinner end/tip to them. But unfortunately, it never goes back to this. All it does is get thicker with a rounded end. If you have barely any brow hairs like I do, this pencil then becomes useless. A fine tip/point needs to be maintained to do detail, and this option is gone once you use the pencil a few times. (Maybe if you have decent brow hairs to start with, this is not a problem.) So hopefully, Pur Minerals will correct this issue! And until this is looked into, I will just have to toss the pencil and look elsewhere for one that has a sharpener built in, or has some way to maintain a good point on it.
There wasn't much of it and I was disappointed that you can't buy refills - a big waste considering all that went into the packaging - hardly every use the highlighter - why not make refills instead of having to buy the whole package?
Applies easily and evenly, stays on for the day, and looks very natural. Best product I have found for filling in sparse brows. Would like to see this product without the brush and "hello bright eyes", just the color.
Love the new wake up brow pencils! I use the blonde roast shade, and I love how smooth they glide on and stay put all day. I absolutely adored 'hello bright eyes' when it used to be a individual pencil, and am so glad it is the highlighter on the end of the wake up brow pencil. The 'hello bright eyes' highlighter on the other end of this brow pencil is great for highlighting under my brow, the inner rim of my eye, and inside corner of my eye. It really brightens my eyes on the days I am feeling more tired than usual. It's my 'looks like I actually slept 8 hours' secret! A great duo product that does so much more than the brow pencil I used to use before.
This is the first time I have ever found a perfect blonde color for my eyebrows. It goes on perfectly and it looks so natural. I like the wand too. Turn to expose the product and turn to have it go back into the wand so it's safe and clean. Thank you!!!!!!
When I first bought this, I was trying something new since I usually use BareMinerals' brow pencil. At first, I definitely loved it and was convinced I would never use anything else. But after the weeks went by, I have stumbled across one thing I cannot deal with. It pulls out some of my hairs! I do not apply this hard at all and I have noticed when I look at my pencil, that there are 1 or 2 of my eyebrow hairs on it. It is a waxy material that seems to have taken my hair out as it goes. This doesn't sound like much, but after continuous use, those hairs add up! I am just NOW seeing the consequences of saying "oh well" about this issue and going about my routine. I can now see a section where those hairs must have came from, so now I have MORE to fill in. I will definitely have to stop using this product, which sucks because aside from this and the fact that it lacks a sharpener (so it's always dull/round), I really did love it for the end product from using it. I could deal without a sharpener, but I cannot ignore losing hair from it. Others seem to love it, so maybe it is just me. I recommend at least trying it, but keep an eye out for this happening and stop using it and switch to something else. I am not going to say I don't recommend it because it was a nice product before I noticed this. It could just be me, but I am warning you to look out for this if you try it!
I absolutely LOVE this brow pencil... I used to use Pur's almandine pencil but it was always a little ashy for me. The new pencil is a lot warmner (I wear latte)and its not as creamy which I like because I don't feel like I am going through it as fast/. Also you get the highlighter on one side which makes your brows look freshly waxed!
I have been really happy with how this pencil applies. It looks very natural, and the highlighter on the other end gives just the right amount of brightness to the eye area. The colors are great, too- it's hard to find a nice Taupe that isn't too gray- the Blonde works on so many women! Definitely recommend this product- filling your brows completely changes your face, and once you've done it, you'll never leave the house without your brows on!
