bareMinerals Frame & Define Brow Styler
It's jut OK!
I got this brown styler in a recent QVC kit. Firstly I found it strange not to have a lid over the pencil end, but thats just because that is how pencils are always packaged so no big deal there. The pencil is very thin and hard and you only need to twist up the smallest amount to use or it will snap. You can be quiet firm with it too. Out of interest I twisted the whole pencil out to see how much I got, which was less that 2" which seems a very small amount, but it is a firmer pencil than others so uses less but with it snapping a lot until you get used to it, it didnt last for long. The brow brush at the other end is great and helps with the smoothed look. I will stick to my mineral version though as after 12 months, its still nearly full.

My new hero product!!!
Due to strong medication over a number of years, my eyebrows have suffered drastically. I have tried several brow products to fill them in and have resorted to tattooing them, however this has now become cost prohibitive. I ordered this brow styler as soon as I saw it advertised as I was sold on the "ultra fine" description. I have just received it and have used it today for the first time and am totally delighted!!. There are other similar style premium brand pencils of a similar price that I have been using but these will now be binned as although they are reasonably fine tipped, this new BM one beats them hands down. The end is so fine that I was a bit wary of it breaking on use, but I was so wrong. Only a gentle touch is needed for the finest of stokes to be applied to effectively fill in all my gaps and give a lovely shape to my brow without looking too heavy. Because of my brow issues, I have become a bit OCD with them and have ended up taking so long to fill and shape them every day....time that could be better spent! Today, it has only taken me minutes to get the look that I want and I couldn't be happier. I don't normally write reviews however I felt compelled to write one for this product as this is such an important beauty area for me. Anyone who has experienced brow problems as a result of health issues will know what I mean!! Please give this product a try as I really don't think you'll be disappointed. I used the Universal dark colour as I have dark brown hair and it is exactly the right shade for me.

Brows to die for
I love the brow styler, it's easy to apply and doesn't drag on the skin like some brands. I first bought the product when they sold it on QVC and I'm so glad they made it a stock item. I've learned to only twist the barrel up slightly and not to be to heavy handed when applying it to the brow otherwise the product can break off. The pencil is quite soft so glides on very easily. It gives great coverage for the sparse bits and the brush helps to groom the brows in place.
