  • I use Maybelline Brow and Eye Liner. It's really cheap and works well.

  • Never have used one and I don't think I ever will if my eyebrows turn white, I will dye them but never a pencil.

  • I don't think the issue is always because your eyebrows are light because mine are dark, just not full. I always thought it was strange and I would hate to have a smudged eyebrow lol but I am very interested with all the make up tutorials i have watched on youtube

  • Mine never smudges. I use one because I color my hair, but I'm afraid to color my eyebrows.

  • please lord don't use a pencil. you need a powder. It looks waaaay better. Clinique has nice ones, and you can get matched in your shade

  • Nope. They are a waste of time & money.

  • I use a angle brush and a matte eyeshadow that matches my hair color. It grabs on to your hair and defines your brows with out leaving the drawn on look. I have brown hair and blonde eyebrows so its really annoying but the eye shadow trick is wonderful.

  • a friend of mine that is a makeup artist says to use a blonde pencil and just to fill in the lack of extra hairs no matter your hair color and it works. I don't do it often I think I have enough hair

  • oh gosh yes, i just got one
    got my first one at macy's for $15 and the second one at the 99 cent store, it works just as well
    they make a world of a difference
    if you brush your brows too, it makes them grow
