Review // MUA Brunette Eyebrow Pencil

Hello lovelies, hope your all well sorry I've been away for a while. The other week i done a post on my eyebrow routine so staying on that topic i thought I'd share my thoughts on the MUA eyebrow pencil.
MUA eyebrow pencil £1

Shaping my eyebrows has now become a very important part of my routine so i have gone from not using this at all to including it in my everyday make-up. If like me you struggle to get your desired shape naturally as some parts wont grow at all or you only have sparse hairs, using a pencil to basically draw the shape that you want on really makes a difference. 

I like this pencil as one to learn with as it is only £1 but i will be completely honest and say it's not amazing. I find it quite soft and can smudge quite easy...not really something you want if you rub your eyebrow whilst out and not realise! When i say it's soft i mean you have to use a really light hand else you'll get a lot of product and it won't look very natural. The other down side i have is just how dark it is when they offer so little colour choice and with it being extremely pigmented and soft it's so easy to get your outline way to dark. In the swatch photo i have used a very light hand and it's still a bit dark, so if you have lighter brown hair i certainly wouldn't recommend this one for you.

Even with this said i have enjoyed experimenting with it and i do think my eyebrows have looked nice, I'm just glad my hair is quite dark so I've been able to pull it off. I think it would be good to try if your thinking about changing how you do your eyebrows as it's so inexpensive but personally for me i will be on a hunt for a pencil that suites me more and is easier to get on with. 

Do you use an eyebrow pencil as part of your brow routine? X

  1. Lovely post!
    I personally don't need to fill in my brows- as they are very full already, but I have heard great things about the Rimmel Eyebrow pencil :)

  2. I picked this up once thinking it would do a good job but I agree, it's far too pigmented and soft! I just use it as my back up brown eye liner now :) I usually just use a matte brown powder to fill in my brows, I think it looks more natural! Great review xx

  3. ive been looking into eyebrow pencils and gels for ages- it's so hard to find a good one, though. Most of the amazing ones are very expensive. However, MUA is always trustworthy :)

  7. I do fill in my brows a lot now, previously used the Mac eyebrow pencil but I've found I much prefer Benefit's Brow Zings :) I find it is so much easier to use, control and make look perfect! For the price however I would consider trying this.

    I love your blog :) only just stumbled upon it!
