I don’t consider eyebrows as makeup as it is more an essential to my routine, just like skincare. I can never leave the house without drawing my brows even if it was just to a nearby hawker stall just to pack food. Raise your hands if you’re just like me! 🙋
Since I use brow products so frequently, my brow products have been depleting vastly without me noticing till now. Decided to try NYX Professional Makeup’s Fill & Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil as I wanted to get the effect of natural looking brows while having the convenience of the pencil and brush in one.
NYX Professional Makeup’s Fill & Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil features a retractable, teardrop-shaped pomade bullet for shading, plus a micro paddle brush for blending on the flip side. It comes in eight matte colors – blonde, taupe, auburn, chocolate, ash brown, brunette (I got this colour), espresso and black. It claims to be perfect for drawing the effortless “boy brow” look and building controllable volume with its arch-styling duo.
Microcrystalline Wax/Cera Microcristallina/Cire Microcristalline, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)
How to use:
- Use the teardrop shape of the waxy pomade pencil to shape and shade brows.
- Proceed to use the pointed edge to define with small, hair-like strokes.
- Once you’ve filled and sculpted, fluff and blend those brows upward with the unique micro paddle brush on the flip side until you’ve achieved a naturally full, smooth, and gorgeous finish.
First off, kindly excuse my heavy drawing as I’m used to powder and cream type brow products which more strength is involved during the application. Anyway, I was quite surprised by the pigmentation of NYX’s eyebrow pomade pencil. It was definitely true to its colour and the brow pomade could easily glide on my brows. I’ve used cheap brow pencils where the leads were often too soft and would simply smudge from a gentle rub. This was not only easy to draw with very minimal strength needed,
it’s actually rather long lasting! I always thought that cream brow products were the best and most long lasting, but I’ve been proven wrong with this one.
I actually don’t really like the paddle brush as it was quite dense and wasn’t unable to create the natural brow look that I could normally achieve with the mascara wand type of brush. My brows are lesser at the front area so I really needed a light brush that could blend and create the illusion of natural brows.
Though it is a little pricey (to me) for what it is, as there may be plenty of more affordable versions from Etude House, Innisfree and more, I would recommend it as a good brow product investment as it would definitely last you as you won’t be using as much or having to reapply often compared cheaper brands.
Overall, like all NYX Professional Makeup products, this Fill & Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil did not fail me and was able to give me lasting brows which is mad love for someone who easily sweats (#me). 😂 I would repurchase this for its quality but would definitely skip using the paddle brush!
