Here comes the review of my most favorite eyebrow pencil ever! 🙂 I am obsessed with my brows and do not think there’s anything called “too many brow products.” So, I own and use quite a lot of them. Let’s get started with this review.
Shady Slim Brow Pencil is the perfect way to get fuller, beautifully sculpted brows. Shape and fill brows with the retractable super skinny tip to create natural looking hair-like strokes. Use the opposite end spoolie to brush and blend brow color for a finished look.
My Experience with LA Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil Medium Brown:
LA Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil is a clear dupe for NYX Micro Brow Pencil, which is actually a dupe of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil. 😀 The packaging of this pencil is quite nice and useful. There are two sides to the pencil, one has the brow product + cap and the other side has a spoolie + cap. The caps fit well and the twist-up mechanism works really well. The cap of the brow product is color-coded and all the product related information is provided on the packaging.
LA Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil is available in 10 shades, which means there’s something for every skin tone and brow color. Great, right? For myself, I chose the shade “Medium Brown.” This is, well, a medium brown shade and suits my brow hair well. Depending on the intensity, I can create natural to dramatic brow looks with this shade. I can even go a shade or two darker to get a more intense look; that’s how versatile the shades are.
I love this pencil a lot because its tip is super skinny. Since my brows (*touchwood*) aren’t too sparse, thick pencils and brushes do not work well for me, but this one is perfect. I have full control over the product when I am using this pencil and can draw thin, precise lines easily. The brow product has an amazing texture. It glides on smoothly but isn’t too dry or thick. Once set, it doesn’t budge from its place but it isn’t waterproof. It doesn’t disappear if I use rose water or face mist, but it will get removed if you rub your brows.
Overall, I feel this is an amazing brow pencil and offers good value for money. Both sides of this pencil are quite useful and effective. I would not mind getting it again and might choose a different shade for a more dramatic look. Sometimes, I fear that I might break the pencil but, fear not, it’s sturdy enough. I have been using it for over two months and don’t have to use too much product in one go. The only issue with this pencil is that it cannot tame brow hair but that can be fixed with some wax or even hair spray.
