Review: NYX Auto Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown

I accidentally broke my brow pencil on the day that I have to provide makeup service for my client. Since Sephora is on the way to my client’s venue, I thought I would want to get a quick grab of a brow pencil and spot on makeup brush cleanser. I remembered that Sephora just brought in NYX Cosmetics not long ago and I thought of giving it a try on NYX Auto Eye Brow Pencil.

Create flawless arches with this eyebrow pencil, a blend of vegetable, coconut and soy bean oil that guarantees a fluid application and sensational color. Use the built-in brush to blend color and style your eyebrows to perfection. Available in 8 shades. – NYX Cosmetics

This brow pencil is dual ended where one end is the retractable lead and another is the brush. Only the retractable lead has cover over it. I always love to use retractable type because no fuss on sharpening it.

There are 8 shades available supposedly but Sephora Malaysia only brought in 3 shades which is Black, Charcoal and Dark Brown. I have chosen the lightest shade among all which is Dark Brown which looks like chocolate brown.

This is how I use the brow pencil, simple and easy.

  • Step One – Clean bare brows
  • Step Two – Outline the shape of the brows and fill in
  • Step Three – Blend for natural looking brows

Do repeat the steps if you need darker brows.

Test on its lasting power

It has been approximately 8.5 hours and it lasted so well. At the beginning of my brows is a little bald and it wears off on that area. The shade stays true really well.

Ingredients: Ceresin, Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Butylparaben, B.H.T., and Zinc Stearate. MAY CONTAIN: Black Iron Oxides (C.I.77499), Red Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Yellow Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), or Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007).


Verdict?

I love that its easy to use and very affordable. The brush does feel soft and blends easily. It lasted pretty well on me, considering the comparison at approximately 8.5 hours and the shade stays true. The only turn off is the shade selection is very limited and Dark Brown is quite dark for me. It worked on my client so well because I was doing night makeup for them. The only way for me to use this is to fill my brows lightly or use it for night occasions.

    • Yeap and this is the lightest shade that they have. I have yet to try their eye liner.
