And, thanks to Style Collective experts (celeb makeup artists and stylists), i know Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil are kit go-tos. Beauty junkies everywhere are obsessed with Glossier Boy Brow and pretty much anything Benefit.
But among all the brow pencils, waxes, tints and powders, what product has the power to really define arches, fill in any gaps and perfectly match hair color—in less than two minutes?
Application: Listen: My brow-drawing skills are pretty embarrassing for a style editor. I want to spend two minutes max filling those babies in before I jet out the door. The pencil's retractable triangle tip creates precise lines (if you use the pointy side) and the ability to color in sparse areas (with the longer edge), while the brush on the other side perfectly diffuses the product out for a more natural look. Done and done.
Color: First world problems, but my hair color lives somewhere in between dark brown and black, so finding that perfect middle hue often proves difficult. Out of Burberry's five shade offerings, Ash Brown 03 accentuates my strands just right. It's not too dark or too light. The pencil shades are subtle, with an option to go darker if you choose to build on more, making this product almost customizable to any hair color.
Runner-Ups: Again, if you feel this product may be too waxy, Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift Three-Way Shape, Lift & Shade Eyebrow Pencil is a genius alternative. Not only is the texture a tad tackier (read: no smudges!) but the dual-ended pencil has a third compartment in the middle with a highlighter cushion to provide lift to those arches.
