Review: SEPHORA COLLECTION Retractable Brow Pencil – Waterproof in Soft Charcoal

Sephora Retractable Brow Pencil Waterproof

So I was getting tired of having to repurchase my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz every 2 months. That thing runs out QUICK and it ain’t cheap! I found a great dupe which is a lot more affordable and is pretty much identical. I’d much rather pay $13 versus $21 for the same product.

Sephora Retractable Brow Pencil – Waterproof is said to be “a long-wear brow pencil with a wingtip comb. These retractable pencils create fuller looking, perfectly-defined eyebrows. To dispense color, twist the pencil and the always-sharp tip comes up. Easy-to-hold, it gives you perfect control to create precise hair-like strokes. Use the comb tip to brush brows and blend. Available in seven natural-looking colors, each long-wearing formula stays put without smudging.”

This brow pencil looks exactly like the Brow Wiz except that it comes with a comb instead of a spoolie. I’d much rather have a spoolie because I think the comb is pretty pointless. It comes with 0.003 ounces of product and is retractable just like the Brow Wiz. There are 7 shades so I think everyone will be able to find a pretty good match. However, I did notice that there isn’t a dark brown shade that leans more ashy rather than warm/red. Most drugstore brown eyebrow pencils lean too red and I feel like the 2 true darker browns (Rich Chestnut and Midnight Brown) of this collection lean too warm as well. I think an ashy brown (like the brunette shade of the Brow Wiz) is my perfect shade, however, soft charcoal makes for a very good substitute. It is an extremely dark brown that leans more ash rather than red. I just have to be careful not to apply too much product because it is a very dark shade.

I really do love this brow pencil! It is extremely easy to use and makes it very quick to fill in my brows. Even though I mostly use this product along with a brow powder, I think this pencil works great on its own as well. I usually like to outline my brows than fill in with a brow powder, but on days where I am in a hurry I usually just use one or the other (depending on if I can find my angled brush or not). This brow pencil lasts all day and does not smudge or fade at all! The first time I tested this out was at a concert and I found that it looked exactly how I applied it 12 hours later. I highly recommend getting your hands on this brow pencil!
