Kevyn Aucoin: The Precision Brow Pencil

So this is my second Kevyn Aucoin post as I promised, this time on the Precision Brow Pencil that I also picked up on my Space NK trip. I usually use Benefit Brow Zings on my eyebrows but I wanted something a little lighter for Spring/Summer so when I seen Lisa Eldridge using this on her YouTube channel I wanted to try it. Also, the girl in Space NK said that it was meant to be really good and was really popular so I thought why not give it a go.

The Precision brow pencil comes in two colours (that I know of) Ash Blonde and Brunette, I went for the Brunette as I've got quite dark brows. It's made with the thinnest lead available which means you can fill in, shape and define your brows with accuracy. I apply it with short, thin strokes for a natural look and then brush my brows through with the handy spooly brush that comes on the end. I love that it has a spooly attached as I'm always loosing mine and always like to brush my brows before and after I apply product. My brows are already really dark, so I just use this to define them and shape them a bit. I also love that it comes in a retractable tube which means there's no need to sharpen it and you can twist it back in once your finished so it doesn't break. Again, I'm impressed with the super slim packaging, it doesn't just look like a boring brow pencil.

Since I bought this, I've used it every day. For during the day I prefer this to my Brow Zings as it gives my brows a more natural look but I'll still be using my beloved Brow Zings for nights out and in the winter again. I usually always prefer a powder for my brows but this pencil is different to any I've ever tried before and I'm really impressed with it. It costs £19 (little bit expensive for a brow pencil), but since I was lusting after the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor which costs £32 I didn't feel so bad buying this one. Like I said before, I'm really loving the Kevyn Aucoin products!

What's your favourite brow product, have you ever tried this one?

  3. This reminds me of the Anastasia Brow Wiz but I actually prefer the look of this one - I've always powdered my brows but really want to try a pencil.

  7. Ahhhh Melissa I just want everything you put on your blog... I really want toget a brow pencil instead of doing them with eyeshadow, so much easier to travel with. Very tempted by this! xx
