Guerlain The Eyebrow Pencil

Guerlain's newest addition, The Eyebrow Pencil, is a double-tipped pencil that has a light yet pigment-packed formula to ensure long-lasting hold. Its universal shade is designed to adapt to all eyebrow colors and skin tones.

The texture is quite hard and the color payoff is buildable, which is a good thing for this kind of product. If you want a highly pigmented brow pencil to achieve super defined brows, you won't like it. But if you love natural soft brows and the look of a brow powder, you should check it out!

A brush and a sharpener are included, which is always a nice addition.

Unfortunately, this pencil is only available in one shade (01 Brun Ideal) and it's not a good color for me. It's a medium brown with a slightly pinky-purple undertone which would work best if you are a redhead. This would have been a good pencil for me when I had burgundy hair, but now that I'm a brunette I really need a taupey brown!

Here's a comparison with a few different brow pencils to show you the undertone :

As you can see, MAC Spiked is also a warm brown but it doesn't have the same purple-pink undertones. It Cosmetics Brow Power is a golden brown. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Brown, Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil and Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette are a taupey-brown color.

Guerlain's The Eyebrow Pencil retail for $34 CAD for 1.08g.
