The 5 Best Drugstore Eyebrow Pencils on the Market
Between powders, gels, pomades, and pencils, the beauty industry boasts a font of product in the name of bold and beautiful eyebrows. However, as we've mentioned before, people usually have a very strong preference when it comes to their formula of choice. (Brows are important, folks.) For example, I've never been able to love any powder or pomade quite like I love my stash of perfectly taupey-hued pencils. So what's today's product du jour? The very best drugstore eyebrow pencils money can buy. Because, I don't know about you, but my pencils transform to short and stubby knubs faster than you can say Cara Delevingne. Therefore, spending anything onward and upward of $20 just doesn't feel fair to my bank account.
Looking to keep your brow game $20 and under? We've rounded up the best shockingly frugal drugstore eyebrow pencils boasting results that look anything but. Keep reading for our editor-approved selection.
When it comes to the best drugstore beauty products, Nyx is always at the top of our list, and its Micro Brow Pencil ($17) is no exception. And while the formula is outstanding, we're most impressed by the admirably inclusive shade range. (There's eight to be exact.)
Double-sided with a soft crayon tip on one end and a perfect-for-feathering brush on the other, L'Oréal's Brow Stylist Designer Eyebrow Pencil ($8) is an affordable solution for full, albeit completely natural-looking brows.
Maybelline's Brow Precise Shaping Pencil ($8) is just that—amazingly precise. The strategic, triangle-shaped brush and malleable pencil can tame even the most mischievous of brows in one fell swipe.
As one of the best drugstore eyebrow pencils money can buy, E.l.f. Cosmetics' Eyebrow Enhancer ($3) is also one of the most affordable. (In fact, at first glance, we honestly thought that price had to be a mistake!) Choose from three shades: taupe, neutral brown, and deep brown for demure and polished arches.
From soft black to blonde to auburn, Revlon's ColorStay Brow Pencil ($14) offers great colour payoff and rivals the results of its much pricier counterparts. The angled tip of the pencil makes filling in your brows a breeze, and the waterproof formula is designed to stay put for a full 24 hours.
