Colors need to be redone
Tags +Fills, Defining, Natural looking
I am a makeup artist by profession. The formula of these pencils are amazing! I love them more then any pencil I have used in the past because of the rich pigment and powdery finish. These pencils stay on amazing! SO the biggest draw back is definitely the color range. The colors are too red and there needs to be a true taupe that is lighter then brunette. Brunette is actually really dark and red. The lightest shade is way too red. Boo please refine these colors!!

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.

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.

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).

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!

Not my favorite
Tags +Fills, Defining, Natural looking, shaping brows, filling in eyebrows
I love all MAC products, however, after using this, I've determined that I really don't care for it. I have dark brown hair (almost black looking) but I prefer to wear my eyebrows a tad lighter than that of my hair, however the "brunette" shade was awfully red compared to my natural brow & hair colour. Although this pencil does go on smoothly and the brush on the other end is a huge plus when shaping my brows, I just couldn't find myself head -over-heels for this pencil. I will definitely be going back to the Spiked eye brow pencil, and I'll give the "deep brunette" pencil a try before giving up completely. If you can find your color, it's completely worth it!!!!

This liner is so smooth and soft - let's it apply easily and the brows look really natural. Plus, I am a strawberry blond and the according color works perfectly fine. It's a nudish color and doesn't turn out too yellowish or reddish. Really great produt.
Can highly recommend it!

Quite the stinker
As a professional make up artist and avid MAC enthusiast I consider myself pretty seasoned when I come across the "It!" products and the total stinkers and these are definitely stinkers. I have never taken a MAC product back before and there have been others I didn't really care for but these pencils are the worst. These pencils go on great and having the spooly is also conveinent however after a short time of wear, these pencils oxidize very warm. I say this and I have red in my hair. The formula and delivery is awesome but the colors leave much to be desired. They need to make more neutral toned pencils that oxidize the same like Fling and Lingering do. It is very unfortunate because I wanted them to work so badly.

Since MAC discontinued their famous FAWN Eyebrown Pencil, we with "Brown Hair" are out of luck and left "homeless", looking for another product. The Strawberry Blonde has too much red in it and the other colors are too dark. I did give the Strawberry Blonde a try and the texture didn't feel quite like my Fawn. Brown Hair softens the face much more on a slightly mature lady, than a dark brunette or auburn tinted brunette. PLEASE, MAC, make a pencil for all of your "BROWNS". Thank you!!

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

I was going to buy the twist brow pencil but the lady said to get this one and I'm so happy she did! I have Brunette and the application is very different from any other brow pencil, no wax at all and not as pigmented. I'm not sure why some people say it's too pigmented because it goes on so light and you can brush through your brow with the other end to smooth any mistakes! It's not rocket science. It applies like a shadow but with more control than a shadow, which is why I love it. I loveee the grey undertones because it makes the brow look more natural rather than really harsh and dark. The lasting power is great, I fell asleep with it on and I move a lot and after a couple hours of moving my face on my pillow it was still there! And i put nothing over it so even if you add a clear brow gel I'm sure it would stay all day and night! Overall I love this pencil and will continue to repurchase!

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.

Finally! A brow pencil for Strawberry Blondes!
Tags +Fills, Defining, Natural looking, strawberry blondes
My daughter is a beautiful Strawberry Blonde and really wanted to bring out her eyes by defining her very lightly colored brows. This pencil is the first we've ever found that perfectly matches her hair color but looks totally natural! It adds just the right amount of pigment to bring out her gorgeous green eyes. She is very happy with it! 5 Stars for sure!

My new favorite brow pencil
Tags +Fills, Natural looking, Defining
I really like the powdery finish that this pencil has. Not only can it fill and create a natural look but it also can create a dramatic one too. I am using these pencils now in my kit instead of brow powder.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
