NYC Brow Pencil in Taupe

nyc brow taupe

 When I get recommendations via my blog or YouTube I never know whether loads of people are suggesting the same thing or just one very insistent reader is repeating themselves a lot but this is one of those products that has been drilled in to me I MUST FIND. The thing is, I never could. I must have been searching every NYC concession I spotted for more than a year now looking for this thing (I think it could even be 2) and the taupe brow pencil I was told I NEEDED was never in stock, drove me nuts! I finally found it last weekend and I couldn’t believe my luck.. until I got it home, tried it and hated it. I have never been so disappointed.


 The colour is a little dark but I can live with that, there’s little warmth to it so the taupe claim is true and I can see why it was recommended to me because I’m always harping on about how much I hate orange eyebrow pencils but the formula is just awful. For one thing it’s a brow pencil/eyeliner, it’s a KOHL.. it’s going to be soft and creamy.. nothing like what you’d usually look for in a brow product. It’s not waxy per se but it’s definitely too thick for me, if you work ever so lightly you can get a nice look from it but it’s way to easy to get wrong. I will keep it as an eyeliner but I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for your brows.. not sure where they were going with a multi-use product like this but it just doesn’t work.

    I totally agree with you on this one, I was so disappointed with the formula. And like up you I have decided to keep it as an eyeliner!
