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 never really liked pencils for my eyebrows but I decided to give this product a try & I have to admit, it's a real good eyebrow pencil. It goes on real nicely and the finishing look is just a beautiful natural look. Love it!

I love this product - but like other people said, the amount of product seems to have decreased rather dramatically. I'm going to start trying products from different brands now as a result of running out of mine after filling in only one brow while I was getting ready for the Belmont Stakes yesterday. I don't feel like I used my pencil very much and I'm disappointed it ran out so quickly, since this is such a great brow liner.

I reviewed this pencil a few years ago and raved about it. I still use it to this day and buy multiple pencils at a time. What I am disappointed with is the fact that this pencil has gotten smaller while the price has gone up and it seems like the product runs out much faster than it used to. I'm starting to wonder if it might be beneficial to look into similar products based on what you currently get for the money.

I bought this in the medium brown color and it looks great. I will admit this is my first and only eyebrow pencil I have ever purchased but it works perfectly for me so I can't see me needing to try anything else. it goes on smooth and then i can use the brush to blend the color into my brows.

I purchased this in taupe. I usually use eyeliner or eye shadow to fill in my brows. I wish Tarte sold a color in between taupe and med brown, maybe with more red undertones, but it def does the trick. I love how thin it is and precise.

I just recently started wearing eyebrow liner so i will be honest and say this is the only brand i have tried but I do really like how this pencil goes on my skin and the comb at the end. I like to use the comb to blend the liner into my eyebrows but imagine there might be a spongier tool that may be more preferable to others.

Works the same as Anastasia Brow Wiz, so I use both interchangeably. But because of the thin product, I run out of it pretty quickly, and the price isn't cheap!

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.
