Hey guys, I'm hoping to start a new series called: Why Is No One Talking About It? I want it to be dedicated to awesome products flying under the radar. Whether high end or inexpensive, if it's great then I want to talk about it, especially if no one else really is.
What inspired me to do this is actually this product right here, the Elf Instant Lift Brow Pencil. I got this for $2 and the first shade I got was Neutral Brown. Then I went and got the 2 other shades: Taupe, and Black/Brown. So that's three pencils for $6 all together. My advice is start with Neutral Brown and go from there shade wise. This is a mechanical pencil with a brow brush/spooly on the other end. Much like the ABH Brow Wiz or other brow pencils for that matter.
In my opinion this is quite similar to the Brow Wiz from ABH, except the pencil or crayon itself inside is just a bit thicker than the Brow Wiz pencil or crayon. For the price though I would totally take the gamble and at least see if it's similar enough for your liking. To me I prefer pencils that are angled like the Brow Definer from ABH and the Goof Proof from Benefit. However, for $2, I'm more than happy to use this Elf one and save myself a ton of money. Which is the point of this, the product is good, the pigmentation and easy use is there, so for $2 I feel it's worth your time. I find that I can do my brows just as easily and just as quickly as I had been with other pencils, and much faster than I use a pomade or Wunderbrow. Which I do like just fine.
Like I said earlier I would start with Neutral Brown. It's not dark, it's cool toned so it won't be too warm, and it would fit everything from ashy blonde hair to dark hair like mine. Of course there are two other shades you can choose from as well. I just feel Neutral Brown is kinda a universal color or at least useable until you find your color. I can use black/brown as well but I use a light hand with it so it doesn't get too "sharpie" looking. I've not tried taupe just yet. It seems a bit more warm in my opinion though, I bought all 3 shades to have for clients and so on. You can find these at Ulta, Walmart and I guess anywhere else they sell Elf Cosmetics. It's definitely worth checking out. Ulta always has a coupon for $3.50 off $15 so you could buy something else and basically get an Elf Brow Pencil free since it's $2.
In the picture above, I used Black/Brown very lightly and I always brush out the brows to blend any product build up that's maybe too much and give the brows a "softer" look.
In the picture below I used Neutral Brown like I usually do. It's a bit easier for me to work with because the color is lighter.
