MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil Review Swatches Photos

MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil (Rs 980 for 0.09g) available at MAC StoresMAC Spiked Eyebrow pencil review (5)MAC Spiked Eyebrow pencil review (1)According to MAC

Self-propelling, self-sharpening, brow defining. Confidently adds what you need: shape, colour, density in one streamlined tool. Like a pen, creates its own just-right point. Provides definition, shape, deepens/fills in colour. Creates striking arches. Easy to tote around. No sharpener needed.

I have sparse eye brows and a small kid. Now you must be thinking “What’s the connection?”. It means I have to fill in my brows to complete my look/ look neat and my kid doesn’t allow me to put in too much of time to fill them with powder and set them with gel , whenever I am going out. So I always look out for quick fix for brows. I have used Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil & Inglot Eye Brow Pencil and both failed to impress me. I have heard a lot about MAC Spiked Eyebrow pencil and decided to give it a shot.

Shade – MAC Spiked is a dark brown shade. This color would look good on girls with dark brown to black hair. Its neither light nor too dark, just blends in with the natural hair color and gives a natural finish.MAC Spiked Eyebrow pencil review (4)Texture & Formula – MAC Spiked has neither too creamy nor too dry formula. I find it perfect, I apply it in small strokes and instead of filling my brows completely, try to keep them natural by filling bald spots lightly. I have never experienced breakage of tip while application. Formula is dry and easy to apply. Even if applied in hurry, eyebrows don’t look made up.MAC Spiked Eyebrow pencil review (2)Formula sets instantly and stays on whole day long, without moving out or fading. MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil comes in a retractable packaging, so its very convenient to use.

Negative Points – Expensive and quantity is very less. If I apply it daily this one pencil would last more than a month.

Overall Thoughts

MAC Spiked is what I have looked for in an eye brow pencil. Formula is not very creamy nor dry. Tip is very fine so perfect for making small & fine strokes. MAC Spiked isΒ a good product for working girls who don’t have time to work on their eyebrows every morning and want a quick fix without accidently over doing them. Staying power is amazing and I will definitely repurchase it.

    Love the difference it makes, but its bit expensive πŸ™ I earlier used the MUA brow palette but once I started using pencils I never went back to powder and gel. πŸ˜›

      I know how convenient a brow pencil is. I too had MUA brow kit but the shade was bit light for me ..
