ELF Deep Brown Instant Lift Brow Pencil Review

Hello all,

I am not at all a pro at eye makeup and I just started taking interest in eye makeup recently. I always felt that I have pretty thick eyebrows and hence don’t need to invest in any brow-related makeup product.  And then, I picked up the ELF Instant Lift Brow Pencil in the shade “Deep Brown” to just give it a try. Read on to find out my opinion about it.

ELF Deep Brown Instant Lift Brow Pencil


Product Description:
This slim mechanical pencil shapes, defines, and fills in brows for a natural, polished look. The dual-sided design applies color with the fine tip liner on one side and tames and combs brows with the other to create natural and defined-looking eyebrows.

My Experience with ELF Deep Brown Instant Lift Brow Pencil:

Packaging:  The brow pencil comes in a sleek white plastic format. It is dual sided; one side has the fine tip liner and the other side has a spoolie brush.  The liner is in a twist-up format and this makes it so convenient for traveling as there is no danger of accidentally breaking the tip. Also, no sharpening is needed. The inclusion of the spoolie is another advantage as you do not need to carry an extra brush on you.

Texture/Shade/Finish:  I love that the texture of the liner is not too creamy or else the application would become too messy. The texture is just right and you need a little pressure to apply. The pigmentation is fine too and it does not appear too dark even after multiple swipes which is what you need to avoid an artificial look. The finish is matte.

The shade “Deep Brown” that I possess creates a very natural-looking finish on me and honestly, I am hooked on to it now. It gives a very nice clean look to your face which I just love.

There are two other shades for you to choose from.  The spoolie is of good quality and works effectively in combing the brow and spreading the product to give a natural look.

The staying power is pretty good and it stays put for almost 6-7 hours and does not smudge/budge.

One thought on “ELF Deep Brown Instant Lift Brow Pencil Review

  1. I loved the concept of this product. It’s so good when they provide a spoolie with the pencil. But, you have naturally beautiful browns Manaswini. 🙂
