Last week, Miss M and I were enjoying a cocktail at the W Hotel when she turned to me and said, “Your eyebrows look really good.”
I’ve long preached that well-groomed eyebrows are a beauty essential. Tweezing is important, but filling in the eyebrows with a pencil is critical. And after a delivery from Birchbox, I am convinced that the very best eyebrow pencil on the market is the ybf Universal Eyebrow Pencil ($20 for two).
First off, the pencil tip is shaped to create feather-like strokes. This is perfect for filling in your eyebrows to look strong but natural.
The pencil also has a twist, so you never have to sharpen. No muss, no fuss, no searching for the sharpener in the bottom of the junk drawer.
The pencil also does double duty. On the other end, you have a brow groomer that tames unruly hairs and perfectly shapes the brows.
Also, I don’t know how they did it, but the taupe eyebrow pencil looks fabulous on every woman regardless of hair color. Blonde, brunette, or redhead, you can all use this pencil. The trick is to apply the product at different pressures. The harder you press, the darker the color.
There are few products in my makeup bag that I know I will be using five years from now. This pencil is one of them. I highly suggest you pick one up.
