The product

A special blend of ingredients conditions brow follicles, and the waterproof smudge-free formula makes brows looks healthy and natural. The fine-tip brush mimics the natural growth of brows, allowing for an easy-glide application. Available in a light and medium shade.

How to use it

Apply colour to sparse areas with short brush strokes to mimic your natural hair growth. Extend the colour to the tips of the brows for a strong, defined look.

The bottom line

Like my coffee and my men, I like my brows strong. Maybe it's because I suffered from an overzealous tweezing experiment in high school that left me looking like a grunge-era Clara Bow. I tried to (over)compensate by filling them in with an eyeliner pencil, but that left me looking more like a Shmenge brother. It took me years to find the right brow balance, but they're still sparse in areas. With this Stila pencil, however, a few short, quick strokes is all it takes to fill in my brows in a way that looks natural, defined and not at all demented. (No offence to the Shmenges.)
