MAC are putting the spotlight on brows (clearing the is focus on those is staying put for the forseeable) and are launching a whole collection – MAC Brows are It! – with a host of different brow products to give you the look you want. I have the MAC Big Brow Pencil to show you, which I am loving. Here are the details.

MAC Big Brow Pencil Review

The new collection offers something for everyone – “Filled in, plucked, lengthened, naturally bushy, glamorously arched–the eyebrow, with all of its individual character, is as expressive as any feature of the face. With a collection of professional products, M·A·C now gives the brow its place in the spotlight at last.” And I think that the MAC Big Brow Pencil is the perfect product for me.

It is a nice chubby, twist-up pencil which delivers a really good coverage in just a few little swipes. It’s great for my brows as they are quite chunky and out of control. It has a nice waxy texture that keeps everything in place.

I have been using shade Spiked which adds subtle definition and fills in any gaps in just a few strokes. The colour is long lasting and smudge resistant.

One thought on “MAC Big Brow Pencil Review & Swatches

  1. These look rather interesting! I’ve used the Mac self propelling eyebrow pencil for years but it takes a little while to draw my brows in. Anything that will save time gets a big thumbs up from me. I am looking forward to trying these in March 🙂
