Brow pencils for blondes 801

After almost two years on the beauty scene, ColourPop recently launched its debut line of eyebrow products, and frankly, this is the best beauty news of 2016 so far.
If you’ve ever ordered anything from ColourPop before, you probably know how great their packaging is.
The complete set comes in a perfectly color-coordinated box with a handy little color guide. I should note that I barely pressed down on my arm with each pencil, and I still got that really intense color payoff from each shade.
After a brief deliberation, I decided that Honey Blonde was probably the closest approximation to my shade, which is odd because I never considered myself to be a blonde in the first place. I almost always have something on my brows, be that clear mascara, a lightweight brow pencil, or Milani‘s relatively high-coverage brow color, because years of waxing and nervous plucking of my brows have left them a little sparse. The application process is just like any other brow pencil: I brushed my brows up, used light, small strokes to fill in any empty spaces or sparse areas, and once I was satisfied with the finish, I blended the color in with my natural brows to keep them from looking streaky or too drawn-on.
Immediately, the side with the filled-in brow looks more polished and put-together, and all it took was 30 seconds and a little bit of eyebrow love. The eight shades are exactly the same, so, in theory, you don’t have to worry about too much color variation.
ColourPop’s Brow Pencils and Brow Colours are currently all out of stock, but keep checking back on ColourPop’s website for a re-stock! This products features a pencil at one end for precise filling and a wavy, clear pencil at the other end that will set the look in place when it’s finished. Perhaps best known for its matte liquid lipsticks, the budget-friendly brand has a knack for creating instantly iconic products that amass a fervent cult following. The metallic finish on the sleeve makes everything feel so elegant—definitely not something I was expecting from an under-$15 purchase. Each pencil is double-ended, with the pigment on one side and a spoolie on the other, leaving you with no excuse to not blend your color and brush your brows into shape.
I also love that there are two colors for red heads, because so many other brow pencils either neglect gingers altogether or assume that they’re all orange a la the Weasleys.


I went completely product-free for the sake of this review, though, so you’re welcome. When I say I barely touched my brow with the product and achieved that color, I’m not exaggerating. Brow tints like these always require the use of a brush which, unfortunately, was not included with the brow colour set.
I tried three separate ones, gave them to my co-worker to try, and then we accepted defeat.
Use of the web site constitues acceptance of the Defy Media Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. And those who have graciously accepted the trending (and totally flattering) application of this product may have realized that when used on the reg, those little yet completely powerful pencils get dull and run dry really, really fast. On one side, you’ll find a soft gel that naturally fills in your brows and leaves a smooth finish.
When you want something to simply (and subtly) fill in stray hairs in an already well-defined set of eyebrows, this might be for you.
The cap also features a little brush with soft bristles that you can use to shape your brow. The extremely thin and pointed felt-tip of this pen is designed for total precision, while the liquid formula is said to be resistant of smudging. Until now, my only experience with ColourPop has been through reporting its launches and various celebrity collaborations, most because their products are available online only, and online shopping for beauty products that I’m not already completely familiar with makes me really nervous. The pencil itself is a self-sharpening twist-up one not unlike the cult-fave Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. These pencils are super pigmented, and I love how perfectly the shade managed to match my hair color (which, when I got hair extensions, I learned is actually pretty difficult to match). The other side of the duo features a powder (kind of like an eyeshadow) that you apply on top of your freshly-gelled brows to soften the overall look. This product has a soft applicator that you can use to gently dab on the tops of your brows.


Because let’s be real, you want your filled-in eyebrows to look as natural as possible. My one complaint is that, once you twist the product up and out of the pencil, you can’t twist is back down. I mean, technically you could use any stiffer, synthetic angled brush you already have in your arsenal, but shouldn’t a brow color come with all the tool you need to use it? We recommend using an angled-eyeliner brush to apply the gel, as it will you give better control over the look.
In a way that’s a good thing because it prevents you from using too much, but I also twisted it up pretty high in order to get a good look at it, and I was nervous that putting the cap back on would ruin the pencil.
I shall keep trying, though, and update you if I ultimately acquire the adequate amount of upper body strength to open the jar.
You can use each one individually for a stark or simple take on your brows—and at $3, you really can’t beat it. Since it’s a powder, we suggest blending it in with a thin brush your your ring finger. The product comes in four different shades, allowing you to pick the color that best suits and complements your look. When it comes to eyebrow products, there are affordable options that work absolute wonders, enhancing your look and drawing attention to your features. Overall, if you’re still on the fence with bold brows, this product will ease you into the trend.
