beauty. NYX precision brow pencil

I’ve never been a fan of brow pencils. I’ve tried one or two in the past, and just found them to be so hard it felt like the precious brow hairs I have left were being pulled out. Pomades have been my go-to for ages now, but the constant angle brush cleaning has driven me mad! I lost my pomade while I was on holiday, and to be fair it was on it’s last legs anyway. I hadn’t tried one of the pencils with the angle style tip so I picked up the NYX Precision brow pencil in Espresso.IMG_9915These pencils come in 8 shades from blonde, all the way to black. I love that they have something for everyone, especially all the cooler tone shades which were lacking in ranges for a while. They retail for £9 (NZ$18) which is about half the price of the cult favourites like Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow wiz. IMG_9900The Espresso shade is just right for me. It’s cool in tone, so you don’t get that ghastly ‘filled my eyebrows in with a warm tone eyeshadow’ look. It has a great spoolie on the other end which I love as it’s one less thing to have to carry in a makeup bag. To put it simply, this pencil is life changing perfection.IMG_9917 The formula is actually perfect. Not too dry where you are ripping back and forth trying to get colour down, but not too melty where it’s making a mess. It takes me half the time to do by brows now, and they look insta perfect everyday. Sculpting is a breeze, so I barely need to conceal around them at all anymore.IMG_9921I can’t see myself ever not using this product now, and I will definitely be stocking up for my freelance kit too. The only problem is, I am yet to find any NZ shop that sells it. Heartbroken! I’m sure we will get it in NZ eventually (crying face), until then cultbeauty.co.uk sell it and they ship to NZ – internet shopping saves the day again!
