Just as people on either end of the skintone spectrum have difficulty finding matching foundations, I feel like there are a town of brown eyebrow pencils but it’s a lot more difficult to find one that works if you are blonde or, like me, have near-black hair. However, the Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil* range now has 6 shades, and although I can’t guarantee there is one for everyone, I can say there is definitely one for me!
The Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil is available in the shades Black (093), Ash Blonde (433), Soft Brown (453), Brown (593), Blonde (653) and Dark Brown (693). They come with a spoolie on one end and a pencil on the other, and do require sharpening, however they also come with a sharpener.
The consistency of the Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil is definitely different from the Diorshow Brow Styler in Universal Dark Brown, which I’ve actually been using daily although I do prefer the colour match of this. I think the shade range is pretty good, and I’m especially happy that the Black isn’t too reddish which is often an issue for me. There’s also Ash Blonde and Dark Brown which are cooler options for lighter hair colours, as well as warmer tones in Blonde, Soft Brown and Brown.
The Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil gives a soft colour that blends very easily when you use the spoolie on the end–I do feel like the spoolie itself could be a tad softer but maybe I’m just weird. When using the Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil, the result is really natural but it also fills in any missing patches perfectly. Unlike harsher brow pencils, I don’t feel like I have to really carefully draw little hairs with this pencil because of how well it blends.
Using just the Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil, the product lasts all day. However if you need a little hold on your brows, you can also top it with a gel. I think this product is the best of both worlds–the precision of a pencil, but the wear and natural look of a powder. Make sure to check out the photos from yesterday’s post on the new Dior Rouge Dior Lipsticks to see full face photos of my brows when using this product–honestly, they look great.
Even when I saw six different Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencils, I wasn’t sure if there would be one that worked for me, but the Black shade is perfect if you have really dark hair and don’t want it to look like you filled in your brows with eyeliner (I’ve been there…) In addition to the great shade match, the wear and natural look of this Dior Powder Eyebrow Pencil make this an easy favourite and definitely something I recommend!
How do you fill in your brows?
