MAC Eye Brows Crayon Pencil in Spiked- Review, Swatches

If there is one beauty tip that every girl, even the ones who don’t like to put on a lot of makeup should do, is always do the eyebrows. And while there are many steps to achieve a perfectly well-defined brow, the most important is to fill in scarce spots. And today, I’ll be reviewing a product aimed to achieve just that. It is the MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked.

Review

It comes in a twist-up non-retractable pencil. Although hygienic, one thing I dislike about non-retractable pencils is that you never really know how much of the product is remaining until you run out of it! Anyways, all MAC eyebrow pencils are color-coded at the bottom which makes them easy to locate. The product does not come with a spoolie, which is a little disappointing.

The texture of the pencil is soft and waxy. There is no tugging on the skin. The pencil is optimally pigmented, neither less nor more, just right. It is waterproofstays on all day and never bleeds, even if you wash your face. Also, if you rub it vigorously, the shade just gets lighter but never smudges. The pencil blends easily, not just with a spoolie but with the fingers too, so you don’t end up with harsh lines across your eyebrow.

Spiked is a true neutral dark brown. There are no red undertones to it. Although the perfect eyebrow shade depends a lot on a person’s skintone and hair color, I feel this shade should suit a large number of brunettes.

As is the case with all eyebrow pencils, it is quite convenient and time-saving to do your eyebrows using this than using an eyebrow gel or powder. The only problem I have with the product is that the quantity is quite less for the price and the product finishes up very fast, mine lasting for about 4 months.

Overall Thoughts

The MAC Eye Brows Crayon Pencil in Spiked comes in a neutral dark brown shade which should suit a wide range of brunettes. It stays for the whole day and never smudges/bleeds. The pencil, although expensive, is quite convenient to use, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to spare for your eyebrows. If you can ignore the price, I would totally recommend trying it out!

    The only thing missing is a spooly brush with that it would have been a perfect product.
