NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in 05 Dark Brown Review

Hello lovelies,

Today, I am going to review my first eyebrow product. To start with, I wanted to go for something not very expensive and yet effective due to my lack of experience in this field of makeup. I got NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil – Dark Brown as it suited my needs perfectly well. Let’s read on how this fared.

My Experience with NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in 05 Dark Brown:

I really like the packaging of this product. It’s very convenient as it comes in the form of a retractable pencil with a brush on the other end. The brow pencil is housed in a black, plastic body with a cap to shut the pencil. The pencil is thin and perfect for filling up thin as well as thick brows.

I bought it in the shade “Dark Brown” as it is believed that eyebrows should be filled with a shade or two lighter than the true colour of your hair. My eyebrows are black, so the next lighter shade available is dark brown,and I went ahead with it. This shade is a dark chocolate brown colour. Though this shade gives my brows a well-defined look, I feel a slightly darker brown would have made the brows more natural looking.

The pencil is quite creamy and easy to apply. It is easily blendable. The pigmentation is also good. For light application, using it with a soft hand gives the best result. It can be easily built up to a darker shade by using a heavy hand. It does not smudge.

The lasting power of this brow pencil is good. It lasted for a good 7-8 hours on my brows as they are not at all oily. For oily skin, it might not last that long.

  1. this looks like a good product, I recently got one which doesn’t come with a brush cap, wish I had seen this one before! Anyways, I’ll be reviewing the one I have in a couple of weeks after I’m done testing it out completely.
