Brow pencils are a staple in any makeup kit. With just a few flicks of a wrist, a good brow pencil can transform sad, sparse brows into full, thick, and perfectly-defined arches. More natural than a gel and easier to use, brow pencils are for anyone looking to revive their brow game. Here, our 18 favourite formulas.

1. Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Brow Harmony Pencil & Gel

The pencil end leaves soft, blendable lines that look so natural when brushed through with the other end, a tinted brow gel. Use them alone or together—it’s like having two products in one.

2. Estée Lauder The Brow Multi-Tasker

Another multitasker, this 3-in-1 pencil is perfect for faking ultra-natural brows. The angled tip creates both thin and thick lines and the hidden brow powder helps define and fill-in sparse areas. The spoolie end is the ideal size for brushing through and softening your work.

3. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler

With a much larger shade range than most brow offerings (14, to be exact), you’re guaranteed to find your match in this blendable, long-wearing pencil.

4. Wander Beauty Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil

The precise tip means you can draw teeny lines that mimic the look of brow hairs for an ultra-natural look.

5. Glossier Brow Flick

Less of a pencil and more of a marker, this brush-tip detailer adds depth, colour, and definition.

7. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

This brow pencil has a cult-like following thanks to it’s ability to create hair strokes that appear hyperreal—and then last so long you’ll wonder if maybe they are.

8. NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil

This drugstore brow pencil with a long-wear formula and teeny tip is just as good at faking brows as ones three times its price. 

9. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil

The angled pencil has the hold of a wax, precision of a pencil, and impact of a powder. Use the flat end to fill in large spots and the pointy tip for creating hair-like strokes.

10. Christian Louboutin Brow Definer

A waxy formula ideal for creating bolder brows that won’t budge until you’re ready to wash your face at the end of the day.
