I couple months ago, yes I said months, I picked up the BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Brow Pencil. I ordered it because, well I have a shopping problem but other then that I wanted to try a new product for my brow that isn’t as harsh as a pomade. We all know that Anastasia is the Queen of Brow products but I wasn’t interested in spending that $20 or so bucks on just that one pencil. We then have the NYX pencil that is made the same in terms of the look of the pencil with it being retractable and have a spoolie on the opposite end. I have never ordered from the NYX site and have yet to come across this pencil in stores sooooo yea, I never tried that one either. Now, on to this gem. BH Cosmetics is by far one of the best but inexpensive brands around. I have yet to get a product from them that disappointed me. Now, I’m not saying that it’s impossible to get a dud from them but I have never personally had this issue. Let get into this review:
The Claim:“The ultimate, long-wearing retractable brow pencil for defining and filling in brows. The ultra-fine tip gives you precision application to fill in gaps and mimic the look of brow hair while the spoolie end blends for a natural finish.”Features & Benefits:
- Waterproof Formula
- Adds Shape and Definition
- Clinically Tested
- Allergy Tested
The packaging is very slim and travel friendly. It’s easy to use and even easier to loose because it’s so slim lol (I do this at my vanity all the time). It’s very light weight, well constructed and durable. The pencil end is a very thin retractable pencil. It’s easy to twist up with no resistance at all. It’s very smooth and I have no complaints at all in this area.
I won’t lie to you all. When I first tested out this pencil I wasn’t impressed at all. I was actually disappointed. The consistency of the tip of the pencil was a bit dry and waxy and it tugged at my skin. I soon realized that the tip was just dry because it was the tip. Once I swatched it on my hand the consistency smoothed out and it glided across my skin. This product gives the most natural finish on a brow that I have ever seen. I tend to use gel liner in brown and a powder to fill them in for a more natural look but, this product is the best of both worlds. It gives the most hair like look that I have ever encountered. I use very short and light strokes. It makes for a more hair like finish. My natural brows don’t need much help in filling because I am Hairy and the Henderson’s too. The product lasted through out my entire baby shower with no smudging and no fading. It’s a tried and true product and priced at $8 when it’s not on sale and currently on sale for $5. You can’t beat $5 for a great brow product. I’m highly impressed with this product.
