A super-slim, waterproof brow pencil glides on smoothly and lasts all day thanks to Amazonian clay, which helps balance skin for perfect application and wear. 

Product Performance: Unlike thick wooden pencils that tug and look unnatural, this automatic fine liner is four times smaller than the average pencil, so it perfectly mimics actual brow hair for a more natural effect. Whether you’re looking to enhance your own natural shape or playing up the drama with a brow that channels Brooke, Audrey, or Sophia this dual-ended pencil also features a precision brush to help groom and tame unruly hairs into place.    

Powered By: Amazonian clay: Amazonian clay minimizes oil around the hair follicle to balance skin and keep pigment in place.

I found this product a few months ago and I loved it so much. I have light blonde hair and it was so hard to find a brow product that was the right shade (most Ash Blondes tend to be too red for me), but this one was perfect. It went on smoothly, and I had a lot of control over where the product went. It even held up waiting in line for a concert for an hour and a half in the rain! But it seems as though tarte has changed this product recently, and I no longer feel like I have as much control over the it. Although the design of the pencil now makes for a smaller amount of the product to come out at once, it seems to now have a more waxy formula, and I find it harder to do any detail work on either end of my brows. I'm hoping, in regards to the formula, that it was just a bad batch...

However I am still rating it at five stars because even with these new changes, this is still the best brow pencil out there, especially for blondes. I do hope tarte decides to go back to the previous pencil design and formula, but either way I'll definitely be buying more.

I have used this brow pencil for a few years, and love it! I have light brown hair w/light auburn highlights, and the taupe looks very natural. As other reviewers noted, I was a bit disappointed when my last order arrived - the pencil was about 1" shorter than previous pencils and the cost was $.50 more. I do like the new style, though, that lets you wind out the amount of pencil you need, then rewind so it doesn't break.

I absolutely love this eyebrow pencil! A Tarte representative at Ulta introduced me to this brow liner in Taupe several years ago when it was the only color offered. I was hesitant at first as I have very dark brown hair but it worked. I've tried the other darker brow colors Tarte came out with and for me it just does not look as natural as the Taupe. The other great thing is that it lasts through my whole 10-12 hour work shifts.
The only down side that I have to agree with another person's comment that Tarte did seem to give less pencil 1-2 years ago but kept the same price and sometimes the end just breaks off and I don't even have it twisted up that high.
All that being said, I still like this product because of the convenience of the pencil with the brow brush and how well it blends in for a natural look.

I use this on my brides all the time, especially because it's waterproof, and it has lasted on every single one of their hot, sweaty weddings. The shape and size of the pencil is perfect to outline or shade in with. Works very precise.

Love it! I have really thin hair so my eyebrows aren't as defined as I'd like. I used to use powder on my brows because it looked more natural than the drugstore pencil brow liners. So I've tried a lot. I love this brow liner! It is the only thing I use now. It's easy to apply, looks natural, and is much better for my skin.

Best brow pencil there is. Perfect consistency and the Taupe is perfect for my medium brown brows. Lasts well over a month.

I was a loyal user of this product but when I purchased it recently it was significantly smaller but the price was still the same. I don't agree with these kind of tactics some companies use to raise their profit. If you want to raise the price just raise the price!!! Don't be underhanded about it!! Won't buy again.

This was my very first purchase from Tarte. A sales representative from ULTA recommended it. I love the fact that it blends in so well - it looks very natural! I have fair skin with auburn hair and brown eyes. I purchased the medium brown and have been very pleased!

Great pencil! My only issue with it is that it is so thin that it breaks if you twist it up too much. It glides on easily and blends really well with the comb. Looks natural and stays on all day-even through my workout at night.

It is a great color, just a bit hard to blend. I need to use short strokes and make sure I really go over it well with the comb on the other end, otherwise it looks like weird pencil eyebrows. It stays on all day though- even through super sweaty workouts after work without reapplying!
