If you ask me which is one thing I will do before leaving my house, I do my eyebrows. I have sparse eyebrows and I need to fill them to look groomed. I have been using MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil and love it, but purely for the purpose of getting a cheaper option I bought NYX Eyebrow Pencil.
NYX Eyebrow Pencil is a wooden pencil that needs sharpening. It doesn’t come with a sharpener or brush.
Shade – I bought the shade Black Brown , since its a good match for me. This shade would go with medium to deeper skintones. Go for light strokes if you want natural looking eyebrows.
Texture & Formula – NYX Eyebrow Pencil has a creamy texture, not the kind of I expect in an eyebrow pencil. Since the creamier the formula, the easier is to apply too much of product on brows if one is in hurry. I personally prefer slightly waxy formula, like MAC spiked. However if I apply short strokes being very careful, I get it right. I have to keep an eyebrow brush/ spooley handy to brush the extra product evenly. Some people might like the formula as its much easier to apply. Staying Power – NYX Eyebrow Pencil stays on for good 7-8 hours. I generally set it with NYX brow gel, which is just an ok product. I am pretty impressed with the staying power and color payoff.
NYX Eyebrow Pencil is a good affordable product. Color payoff and staying power is really good. If you like creamier formulas, this brow pencil would be a good choice as there are almost 4 shades to choose from. As far as my preference is concerned I will still go back to my all time favorite MAC Spiked until I find a similar formula at affordable price. NYX Eyebrow Pencil has a very creamy formula, almost like an eyeliner and thats what makes it not-so-good choice when you are in a hurry or don’t want too defined brows.
