The Maybelline brow precise pencil matched my hair colour and skin tone perfectly. When following the directions which said to use light strokes when applying I noticed that it was quite difficult to apply this product lightly without making my brows appear too heavy. This would take some practice to perfect.

Tips: Overall I was happy to trial this product. It did what it said it would but would take some practice to apply in light strokes to make the product look natural. I did not like how the product smudged and 'melted' easy and would suggest using a powder or some other product so that the product stays where it is meant to. I also found the brush on the end of the pencil to be quite rough on the skin when blending.
I am always open-minded when it comes to new brow products and this wasn’t any different. I went in to this with no expectations and no opinion. The Brow Precise caught my eye most because I am usually a pencil user when it comes to drawing my brows on.
I like the spoolie on the other end of the pencil because it means I can keep any stray hairs in check and make sure they are sitting in the correct place. I did find the spoolie gets quite abrasive on my sensitive skin, leaving it red and raw. I chose deep brown, which is a dark brown to make my brows stand out.
The formula of the pencil is much like a gel pencil but far more crumbly. The thing I found with the pencil is it crumbles at the drop of a hat. I pressed lightly to create an outline and the pencil simply crumbled on my skin. I had to re-sharpen it and start again. Again it broke. I used it the lightest way possible and still it drew a small line before falling apart again.
It works to make my brows look feathery and natural-ish but at the end of the day I want statement brows and this doesn’t deliver that. Verdict: I like to make my lines deliberate and precise. This pencil creates feathery strokes. It shouldn’t be called Brow Precise with a performance like that. I like the spoolie but that’s as far as it goes.
Tips: Use soft strokes to avoid it crumbling
So I recieved this product in the dark brown colour. I like that the product has a spooly but I generally like my pencils to be automatic. I find the task of sharpening a pencil to be tedious as well as it could ruin the pencil itself if you don't use the right sharpener. With that being said I actually quite like the product it self. I have black hair (asian) and the dark brown actually works okay if you are going with a very natural brow that is not filled in too much. Its very easy to go overboard with this and it can look completely wrong.
However as I was applying this product I did notice that bits of the product would flake off as I tried to apply in strokes. I don't know if it was just mine but it felt as though parts of the product was dry and crumbly whereas some parts were quite soft. So there was a bit of inconsistency in mine but it didn't bother me too much.
Anyways, with that being said this product is quite neutral, I usually prefer using pencils and this pencil wasn't that great but it wasn't terrible. I will continue using this but the fact that it isn't automatic will probably stop me from using this after I have run out of the tip of the pencil. I would highly recommend the dark brown colour for anyone with dark brunette hair with a little bit of red to it because it does have a slight red tint to it but only tiny.
Tips: apply in small strokes so that it doesn't look too harsh (unless you are going for a dramatic look then its up to you). Also brush out the product with the spooly because it doesn't apply that smoothly
I love brows! Along with the rest of the world I am joining in on this trend. I went such a long time without doing anything too them that I look back on the pictures of myself in my younger years and wish I had realised that my face was missing brows. I have incredibly pale blonde brows so I think I look quite funny before I fill them in each day. I was happy to see this product come in blonde which is perfect for me, it is a nice ashy darker brown which I found good for my skin tone.
The packaging is pretty simple at first glance but I actually think it is really smart. There is the pencil at one end and the spoolie at the other. I find the spoolie did the trick, nothing fancy but I don't know how they could improve it. The genius part of this packaging it that the lids on both sides are clear. With my expensive Hourglass brow pencil the lids are opaque so you never know which end you are opening, no problem with this one. I do find as the product is quite creamy you will end up having to sharpen this quite often, I think I might run out of this quite quickly.
Now the product itself is quite awesome. The pencil is really waxy so you can quite lightly fill in your brows for a natural look. The waxy-ness also means that I didn't feel like I needed anything else to keep them in place all day. This means it was my number one product to take on holiday with me as it does two things at once for me. I do think the name 'precise' is a wee bit false as if you really want to create a precise look with this you would need to keep it fully sharpened at all times as it can be quite thick when it gets blunter. I don't mind though as I find it creates quite a natural easy everyday look quite easily.
For me this is my favourite brow pencil that I have tried in a really long time! As a everyday product if makes doing your brows really simple and I have added this to my everyday products.
