This brow pencil is a great price, but I didn't give it 5*s as it runs down SO quickly.
I was going through one of these every two months, possibly more when I was using it.
I love the colour (dark brown) and the application, but it works out pretty costly when you're buying 6-7 per year.
I've now moved on to Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade - It lasts a lot longer. It may have a higher cost when you factor in the brush too, but it's lasted me well over a year, saving me probably over $100!

I was excited to make the $29.00 (Canadian) purchase. A bit pricey for the quality. Seems waxy when applying the pencil to sparse brows like mine. On the plus side, the color match for me is a perfect one - medium brown. It suits my olive skin and medium brown hair color. On the con side, I don't feel the pencil is worth the price. It's no better than a NYX pencil which you can pick up for $4.99 Canadian. The Benefit Cosmetics penicl comes with a spooly which is suppose to help make the brows look more natural after applying the color. With sparse brows, after using the spooly, I feel I need to reapply more color. If you have sparse brows, you may be better off using a powder or different product. Be sure to use a light hand when applying the color.

If you have thin eyebrows & can't find the right product to fill them, this is it.

It is a softer pencil that helps the eyebrow maintain its natural look, yet making it look more full.

Once I found this product, I never looked back.
This product has two ends to the pencil
One end with the product; the other end a brush to help groom any stray hairs.

Worth the pretty penny!

this is the best eyebrow pencil I have ever used before ... I generally stay away from brow pencils because I freel they can add an element of fakeness ..but with this product it glides on sooo very nice and it looks super natural once blended in . This pencil also outlasts my sweaty long shifts so I don't have to worry about touch ups when i'm out and about . The price is a bit steep at 24$ but in the end looking great is worth the price .

This pencil looks very nice on and gives my eyebrows a nice shape. It can be hard to apply and I find i am sharpening it every time I use it. It does wipe off easily and I am finding myself applying it twice a day.

This is another new Benefit Product for me. Bought the Instant Brow Pencil at Shopper's Drugmart this weekend along with Gimme Brow. Tried it yesterday and today - a little bit trickier to use than the Gimme Brow - but still had great results. The brush end works very well for blending and precision. A little pricey at $25.00 Canadian Dollars per pencil, so I will see how long it lasts once I have more practice!

I love love love this eyebrow pencil. This is the first pencil I've spent more than $10 on but I don't feel the need to try any others. I have very dark brows that are too thin on the ends and always had a hard time finding a color that looked natural. This pencil actually comes off kind of gray but looks great on the brows. I haven't had any problems with it rubbing or sweating off. It comes in two colors, I bought the darker one called "deep". I definitely recommend it!
