RANKED: THE TOP 5 BEST PENCILS FOR FAKING FULLER BROWS
From Top-Rated to Most Effective, These Are The BEST Eyebrow Pencils RANKED
By Kimberly Webber
(COSMO) - There’s a growing trend of thicker, fuller eyebrows that everybody wants. Gone are the days of plucking and threading to the point of no return.
But just because a fuller brow is desired, it doesn’t mean everyone can have it. Many of us have thinner eyebrows that need that accentuation. That’s where Eyebrow Pencils and Pens can help. By adding a thicker coloring to the eyebrow hairs and the skin underneath, we can all have that desired look.
However, with so many eyebrow pencils and pens to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? Well, you’re in luck, our team of reviewers and make-up artists have created a list of the FIVE best eyebrow pencils on the market today… Let’s get started.
This is by far our favorite choice when it comes to giving yourself thicker, fuller brows. Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen delivers ideal eyebrows with a few simple strokes. The Microbabe Blade darkens your eyebrows while creating hair-like strokes on the skin, giving the appearance of even more eyebrows than you already have. But that’s not the best part… Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen is infused with their patented Growth Bond formula which hydrates and strengthens your eyebrow hairs for thicker, fuller growth. Within 3 to 4 weeks, a peptide-filled formula delivers nutrients to the hair follicle and root to literally help grow new eyebrow hairs, which means less need for the pen! We love this product so much, especially because they offered us a secret 50% off discount code SECRET50 (shh… don’t tell them we’re providing it to you!). You have to try this!
By far, Liaison Microbabe Blade Pen, is the safest and most effective eyelash pen and growth serum EVER.
Valentino’s Trio Eyebrow Liner is for the artist in all of us. With THREE ways to precisely create a beautiful fuller brow, your creative side can go wild. On one end of the pen is a spoolie, and the other end has a super-fine brow marker that can create hair-like lines. But best of all, under the spoolie is an angled pencil that helps precisely create the shape of your eyebrow with expert precision. This pen allows you to add thickness, color, and depth all with one pencil. Of course, unfortunately, it doesn’t house a growth formula to condition your brows like Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen and comes at a high price. But all in the name of beauty…
Our favorite thing about Rhianna’s line of brow pencils is the amount of shade colorings it offers. Unlike many of its competitors, Fenty offers almost twice as many shades. This makes it a great tool for almost any woman. However, in terms of effectiveness, it’s a pretty mid-range product. We’d only recommend this to those who really need that special shade, and even then, look toward a second product like Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen for better, lasting fullness.
Hourglass uses a wax tip for their sculpting pencil which offers an easier way to shape your eyebrows. The flat end lets you fill in the larger areas of your brow while the pencil tips help create the hair-like lines for the ultimate fullness. We love this product although it is on the pricey side, so beware.
Another three in one product that can give you incredible fullness. A spoolie and pencil for shaping and a secret powder highlighter in the middle is your best weapon for creating the look of higher arches. Another great product, but still missing a formula to help grow your brows while also making them look fabulous. As much as we love all of these products, we can’t help but throw our full support behind Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen…
While we feel we recommended some great eyebrow pencils for fuller, darker brows, we believe Liaison's product was the top choice. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of eyebrow pencils and growth serums. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they give you perfect, fuller brows, but most don’t even come close. I think of all the older women I see with penciled-on eyebrows like cartoon characters, or my many friends tricked into buying serums just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided both at all costs.
But then my best friend, who I trust with my life, swore by Liaison’s Microbabe Blade Pen. She said she’s never had an easier time making her eyebrows look fuller, and even more importantly, within 3 weeks they actually were GROWING longer and thicker. And she found herself using her pen less for thickening, and more for treatment.
I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me her before and after photos and I was stunned.
Week by week, I could see her eyebrows getting healthier and longer. I begged her to let me borrow her Microbabe Blade Pen. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered two pens immediately. LOL.
I received the package within two days and started using it that evening for a night out. The application is very simple, a few strokes across your brow create hair-like lines that give your eyebrows a fuller look. Of course, I was more excited about the Growth Bond formula that actually helps make your eyebrows grow. I woke up the next day expecting a miracle… but alas, it takes longer than that to see those results.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Liaison’s Growth Bond Formula. I wanted to know how it worked, and what it was aiming to do with my eyebrows…
Step 1: When you apply Liaison, a fresh supply of oxygen and citric acid work away at eyebrow hair waste, releasing it through your pores to be washed away and clearing the way for nutrients.
Step 2: The specialized mixture, including purified water and hyaluronic acid, activates internal peptides and gains access to follicles to prepare for bold growth.
Step 3: Polypeptides travel deep into your roots, supplying follicles with essential proteins while you show off your amazing brows.
Step 4: Refreshed brows and follicles continue to receive the optimal oxygen, blood flow, and dose of nutrients needed to keep brows healthy and strong.
After about 3 weeks is when I began to notice the color of my brows getting darker. 4 weeks and I noticed I didn’t have to apply as much of the Microbabe Blade Pen. By week 6, it was as if I was a totally different woman.
Since then, I’ve continued to use the Microbabe Blade Pen and my brows have only grown thicker and healthier.
I’ve been converted into a Microbabe Blade Pen believer, and hope you will, too.
