Strawberry-blonde review
Tags +Color true, Buildable, redhead, powdery
I'm a natural redhead. When I was young, I had that crazy BRIGHT orange red hair, which has softened a bit but is still in the bright category (as opposed to a strawberry-blonde redhead or an auburn redhead). I was matched with the Redhead colour in the store, but found it too dark for me - being so used to NOT having eyebrows at all (lol) it looked super unnatural to go one shade darker, so I asked to try the Strawberry-blonde shade and I. LOVE. IT. It's a bit lighter, and a bit more taupe than my actual hair colour, but the overall effect is perfect and natural.I've had some bad experiences with brows and looking clownish/like I've got orange caterpillars and this pencil can be used with a super light hand or a firmer hand once you gain some confidence.
TL;DR YES good for THIS redhead, if you're on the fence just go try in store! It didn't work for some other reviewers but that doesn't mean it won't work for you!
CONS: I only wish that this colour was available in some of the other formulas - this is a powdery pencil which is good for blending in under the hairs but it is a bit tricky to get sharp definition. Depending on how firm I am and how much spoolie-ing I do I often have to clean up with concealer after. I'd like a waxier option for drawing hairs!

NOT GOOD FOR REDHEADS
I'm a natural redhead with eyebrows that are the same shade as my hair. Neither of the supposed redhead shades of this pencil work. It makes absolutely no sense to make brown-toned eyebrow pencils for redheads! If I wanted a brown shade, I'd buy a pencil from the drugstore. There are certainly plenty of them available for a much lower price than these. I was really hoping MAC would have a suitable red shade, especially since the names are "Strawberry Blonde" & "Redhead". What were you thinking? I'll keep using the eyeshadow that's the exact same color as my hair even though it doesn't have the staying power of a pencil and needs to be retouched in the afternoon. At least it's the right color!

Best Brow Pencil
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I was at the Mac counter in a Department store to purchase this brow pencil. They did not have it and the salesperson told me Mac was going to discontinue this product. I rushed home and found it still available online... I ordered four of these. I love them... best brow pencil ever. I have light blond hair and use the Brunette color. I get so many compliments on my brows. You can use a light hand for daytime and a heavier hand for nights out. Mac, please DO NOT discontinue this product!!!!!

Smooth and easy application!
Tags +Creamy
I like this brow pencil but I picked the wrong color!!! I chose Brunette at the advice of the cosmetologist but it looked too light when I applied it. But I will purchase another one in a different shade. It also didn't last all day for me.

Best brush and color so far!
Tags +Long wearing, Creamy, Color true
I wasn't expecting a miracle but it just about delivered one! I have reddish brown hair with dark eyebrows that needed some filling and shaping and this thing worked wonders. The color surprisingly matched perfectly even though it looked too light on the pencil. The brush helps tame and spread the color and so far it's my favorite! Not bold, it subtly transforms. I love it.

Redhead in love!
Tags +Color true, Long wearing
I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!!
Haha no but really it's awesome. I'm a darker strawberry blonde. My eyebrows are 100% blonde and completely invisible in most lighting. This color is puuuurfect! It also is soooo easy to use. I use a lot of drug stores but my favorite name brand was este Lauder. They don't sell what i used anymore and I went on a long mission to find something equally as good. This MAC brow pencil is a million times better in both color and quality.

Great brow pencil!
Tags +Bold Color, Creamy, long lasting
I bought this eyebrow pencil blindly, to be honest, when I didn't know anything about makeup. My friend recommended it and, well, I trusted her and I'm glad I did! It is really good and the color is bold which means that you don't use a lot of it and don't have to buy another one very soon. Now, I read other comments and people say that after sharpening the pencil, it turned into powder and here I disagree - at least in my case nothing like that has ever happened.
The only advice I have for people who might purchase this pencil is to take one that is darker than you hair actually is. I bought the "brunette" one and sometimes it leaves pinkish or reddish traces in the corners of my eyebrows which is not really a good thing, and next time I'm going to take the "deep brunette" one.
Other than that, the pencil is great - love it!

I bought this in deep brunette shade. It was good until I had to sharpen it. When I did, it just kept breaking off, So frustrating. Now this pencil that I just bought and hardly used is about 1 inch in length :( and there's goes my 20 bucks

Love the color and texture of this product -- worked great UNTIL I had to sharpen it. The tip broke repeatedly. I still like this pencil for "on the go" brows.

redhead is great for my auburn hair
Tags +Fills, Natural looking
I have a heck of a time finding brow pencils that suit my fair skin and auburn hair. Most of the products for redheads are too orange. But the shade "Redhead" in this pencil is awesome for me. Not too orange at all. The lines are soft, so I have to keep the pencil sharp. But light feathery strokes achieve the perfect effect.

I bought this brow liner in Redhead, and the color is perfect! It has proven difficult to find a shade for gingers, but this one is spot on. If you want to lightly fill in sparse brows, but don't desire a bold look, this is what you need. I use it everyday and it has phenomenal staying power, even when I've been caught in the rain or trudging through the humidity of SE Texas. Now, I would never be caught dead without my brows penciled in using this product, because they look THAT good.

I like the brush
I love MAC so much but this pencil didn't fit to my like. Kinda soft and the color is kinda different in person. The color is light. I never try to return but instead use the brush for my eyebrow but not the pencil.

Meh...
Tags +Fills
I had been using the other pencil that doesnt have to be sharpened. Loved it, just didnt last long enough so i moved on to this. It's very velvety, but with that being said, it is VERY soft. You cant get as much precision as you do with the mechanical and ends up making my brows look bigger than i am wanting. I like big brows but i just cant get the shape i want with such a soft pencil. love the color but that's about it.

Good colour but I got a dud
Love the colour of this pencil. BUT, the wood around the pencil cracks everything I try and sharpen as well as the tip just falls off because it must be broken inside. Used it once before I noticed.

Falls apart when sharpened
Tags +Fills
I got to use this pencil about five times before I needed to sharpen it. When I did, the pencil crumbled, and the wood around the pencil wouldn't shave off evenly. The more I twisted it in the sharpener, the more it crumbled. I got halfway down before I stopped so I could take it back and get a refund with the sharpener to show how it disintegrates. Get the self-sharpening "Eye Brows" instead (although that breaks off easily when being used, but that only wastes about 1/4 of the pencil rather than all of itl).

I noticed my eyebrows have noticeably thinned in some areas. So I purchased this product, and I have to honestly say it makes my eyebrows look Better then they did when I was younger when they were much fuller!!

Okay Pencil
Tags +Fills, Natural looking, Defining
The pencil works well, and I love the powdery texture. It helps the overall look to seem more real. However, this is only three stars for me because my hair isn't even a super light shade of blonde, but the color is MUCH too dark for me. I wanted to give this a try because it seemed to contain more product than the other pencils, but it is simply not worth it since I have to waste so much time correcting the color with other powders. My eyebrows also weren't as defined by the end of the day. Still a pretty good product if one of the shades will match you. But beware, they all have a very reddish base!
