Pros: easy to use, long-lasting, nice shade

I’ve come to love NYX just recently. The first thing I bought was NYX Dark Circle Concealer. Then I purchased a powder, lipstick and I’ve been hooked ever since Smile

This time I’m going to review the Auto Eyebrow Pencil.

Where to buy: NYX store

Price: $4

Volume: 0.25g, which is little, but the pencil goes a really long way.

Shade: 07 Charcoal.


What the manufacturer says:

Create flawless arches with this eyebrow pencil, a blend of vegetable coconut and soy bean oil that guarantees a fluid application and sensational color. Use the built-in brush to blend color and style your eyebrows to perfection.


Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax / Candelilla Cera / Cire de candelilla, Ceresin, Zinc Stearate, Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax / Cera Carnauba / Cire de carnauba, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Butylparaben, BHT. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77492, 77491, 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Packaging: I’ve never had an auto eyebrow pencil before.

I always had to sharpen my pencils, which made the crayons break very often. Plus, they were running out too soon. I thought that there would be no such issue with the NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil, but I was so disappointed and frustrated when I opened the packaging and saw a broken crayon! I guess, it fell down a couple of times before it was delivered to the store.

Oh, I lost again Sad

Yeah, I still could use it, as the crayon was broken closer to the bottom only.

The pencil itself is made of plastic and has a convenient cap that is neither too loose nor too tight.

What I particularly like is the built-in brush. At the beginning I thought that it would be useless, but it turned out to be really helpful.

Smell: I don’t feel anything, so it’s non-scented.

Shade: My natural hair is ash blonde with a cold undertone and now I’m planning on going back to this color.

My eyebrows and eyelashes are also light and even gray. That is the reason why brown shades look somewhat unnatural on me. I know that brown shades are all different, so that some of them can actually look good against my eyebrows.

Charcoal is a grey pencil with a hint of brown. The shade is quite pale, but it can be layered and be more intense if desired.

Application: I have some problems here. Self-sharpening pencils have their own pros and cons.

On a positive note, you can forget about sharpening them, but on the other hand, the pencil is always thick, so that it is hard to be precise and draw a thin line.

The crayon is sturdy and somewhat dry. Therefore it gives just a slight color to my eyebrows. It is great for light hairs and for everyday makeup in particular. If you press the pencil a little more, the payoff is more intense.

NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil blends out easy-breezy and fills my eyebrows well without leaving any gaps.

The staying power is something I’d like to pay a special attention to. My eyebrows stay put even after swimming in a pool! I had a bit of a hard time removing the swatches from my hand. I washed them 5 times with a soap, but the lines were still visible. Only micellar water could help there Smile So your eyebrows will be firm in place during the whole day with NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil. Highly recommended!
