Are you looking for a new and easy way to make your brows stand OUT?
If so you might be interested in NYX Eyebrow Markers. These are long lasting, precision point brow pens that come in two colors: Medium and Deep.
Just look at that fine-point pen!
I’ve been filling in my brows for a good 18 years or so now, but am most familiar with using an eyeshadow similar to my brow color (MAC Omega) or using a product like Benefit Brow Zings, which is very similar to an eyeshadow application. I have in the past tried other waxy pencil type of eyebrow applicators (like MAC Eye Brows in Fling), but always found myself returning to the shadow method.
Needless to say when I saw these markers which really do look like fine-tipped felt pens, I was a little nervous. They seem SO precise and permanent, I was afraid of making myself look like a clown. But once I tried them, my fears were abated. Mostly…
Medium (light brown), Deep (dark brown) (Please note that these were applied when I had some cleaning product residue on my hand, so they bled. They do not bleed when applied on the brow!)
There really isn’t much of a difference between the two colors. Medium is just a little lighter than Deep. Deep wasn’t even too dark for me and my hair coloring, which right now is light brown.
I found the tips to be soft and pliable, but not TOO soft so you lose control. I liked that the color went on very evenly and it didn’t seem to run out or get thinner at any point during applying it.
I used very small tiny swipes, as though I was just adding little hairs into my brow. Afterward I was pretty pleased with the results, and this is my first time playing around with these!
So here are the results. The color suited me just fine, but I was a little unhappy with how “drawn on” my brows looked. The pen definitely gives you extreme precision, which can make browns look a little TOO perfect, if you know what I mean.
The color lasted at least 10 hours with no smudging or moving or fading, so that’s great. It removed pretty easily with warm water and cleanser when I was ready to take it off.
I liked the product but am not totally sold just yet. I think I will still stick to my powder method for now because I prefer a slightly less harsh brow than this. Having said that though it’s possible playing around with the pens more could yield a more natural result.
What do you think? How do you fill in your brows?
