I am back again with yet another product review. I recently purchased a lot of makeup and since everyone is obsessed with filling in their brows, I thought I should give it a try too. I picked up the NYX micro brow pencil because it has quite good reviews and many colours too. Keep reading to know what I think of this product.

Build full and beautiful brows with NYX Cosmetics ultra-thin Micro Brow Pencil. So precise it coats even the finest hairs with colour for a natural-looking finish.
My Experience with NYX Micro Brow Pencil:
Packaging: The minute I saw the packaging, I could only think about the ABH Brow Wiz. Nonetheless, the product is a sleek, thin long tube which has a spooley on one side. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly for sure.
I picked up the colour black because I have tried taupe, dark browns colours before and I did not like how they looked on my brows. It did look quite drawn on and I have really dark brows which is why I don’t like tints of brown on it. I only use the pencil to fill in sparse areas gently. I don’t like using anything on my brows generally but occasionally I don’t mind doing a little extra.
The texture of this pencil is just right. The colour is not too pigmented and comes out as a grey black which suits my eyebrows perfect. It doesn’t feel like a crayon or over-the-top smooth but that is kind of good, I guess! I like the fact that the pencil is so thin and you can really get in those little areas on the brows. But make sure you have a light hand!
It doesn’t have any kind of wax content in it at all. I have earlier tried the BH cosmetics eyebrow pencil which has wax properties and it holds the brows in place for quite some time. Nonetheless, I like how natural this made the brows look and I think the black colour is perfect if you have thick and black-coloured brows. The only thing that bothers me is that the product is not too much. I mean if someone uses this every day, it might get finished in a month or two! Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
Pros of NYX Micro Brow Pencil:
• Travel friendly.
• Great packaging.
• Glides on easily.
• Ultra-thin pencil is easy to use.
• Not too dark (this is a pro for me).
• Gives a natural finish.
Cons of NYX Micro Brow Pencil:
• The texture could have been better.
• If you go too harsh, you could end up messing the eyebrows and product too.
• Not enough quantity.
IMBB Rating: 4.0/5.
Would I Repurchase NYX Micro Brow Pencil:
I am really happy with this eyebrow pencil. However, I will not repurchase because I want to try other eyebrow pencils and this will last me for a while.
