Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabienne Have no fear!
I feared this would give me too strong a brow...not at all! This is an ingenuous texture, which adapts to your need. I have tried other well known eyebrow pomades out there and they were all too wet and intense for my needs, making me me look too "graphic". I want my brows to frame my eyes and balance my face, not be the main feature.
This gel-cream-wax-powder combo texture, is much more flattering. Depending on the pressure I put, I get a different intensity of look. As for the brush, it is brilliant too, just the right firmness and length once fitted in the handle. Top tip: Keep it clean! It will keep its shape and precision better.
This is basically the most versatile pomade I have tried so far. I am able to achieve a far more natural brow with this, than with a pencil or even a powder. I use the medium 3, which suits my salt and medium chestnut hair. I would say it is perhaps the most universal shade, if this can help anyone else...

Rated 5 out of 5 by moph Really good
Been having problems with my eyebrows since illness. Never used eyebrow products before so found pencils etc difficult. But this product is amazing. Very simple to use after a little practice. Can't believe it's reduced. Going to get another one quick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheFrostyOne A welcome addition to my makeup collection
As a child I used to be mesmerised by the sight of my Mother "putting" her eyebrows on. She has no tails to her eyebrows which she thought was due to over plucking, but as I now have them too despite little plucking, I suspect it is genetic. I therefore started putting my own brows on a few years ago and after a few wobbly months, I finally got my pencil application down and was wedded to my YBF pencils which I would order in bulk. However as a makeup junkie I could not resist the fact that a) this is similar to the cake formulation that my Mother used (and still used) b) it promised to be budge proof and c) the packaging. I chose 3 for my colouring (I am a natural dark auburn with fair skin) as I like a strong brow and find the colour perfect. The application is obviously different to that of pencil - and is more like painting rather than drawing. This does mean that you can create different eyebrow shapes which look more natural than when you use a pencil (which can look artificial if you are not careful). The colour payoff is great as the product is highly pigmented and yes, it does last, even in 40 degrees of heat.
Other reviewers have mentioned the brush - which yes, is small. Personally I do not have a problem with it, but you could always use a full size eyebrow makeup brush.
My advice to pencil aficionados is to have a practice and a play and you may be surprised. Although I will always keep a YBF pencil in my collection, I will be mixing things up a little with this versatile product

I had seen this several times, and because I was not sure which colour I wanted, I went to my local pharmacy and I got the number 4 as I have dark eye brows Having read other reviews. I can say that it lasts all day until I take it off. I am not disappointed. I love the packaging.

I have tried all sorts of brow product including gimme brow which I didn't like, before I used this one which I love I used to used ybf which I still love but I couldn't get it at the time, this one as got staying power which the ybf doesn't have you can rub it off, this one stays on till you wash it off. This is the one for me now love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by megan24 Not impressed
Bought this in light 2, I have light brown hair and very fair eyebrows that I usually darken with a brow powder. Thought I'd try this as sounded good as long wearing and good demos.
As soon as I tried it, it was obvious that it is very warm toned, orangy colour and not a good look if you are cool toned.
It's also very hard to not get clumps of product and that was using my own brow brush, as the one that comes with it is useless, and a the design is also a bit cheap looking.
Shame but I'll stick to what I know, i can't believe it's so hard to find brow products that have not got orange or red tones in them. Grr.
