Birchbox Breakdown

It takes more than a pair of tweezers to keep your arches looking polished—you also need a stellar eyebrow pencil. ybf’s Automatic Universal Taupe Pencil matches every hair color, from blondes to brunettes and everything in between. Plus the twist up design means you never have to worry about sharpening. Best of all, it also comes with a handy brow brush to add texture and make brows look natural.

How it Works

This creamy taupe pencil really does work on a wide range of hair colors. Depending on how much pressure you use, the color will change. If you have light hair, use a light touch; if you have darker hair feel, free to be more aggressive. Good news for redheads: this shade is perfect for you! The built-in brow brush is great for texturizing.

How to Use

To determine where your brow should begin, hold your brow pencil vertically against your nose. The spot where it hits your brow is where the hairs should start. Keep the pencil pressed against your nostril and tilt it so that it’s in line with the outer corner of your iris — that’s where your arch should fall. Now, angle your pencil a little further so it’s aligned with the outer corner of your eye. That is where your brow should end. Using these key points as the outline for your natural shape, fill in your brows with small, feathery strokes. Finish by sweeping the brush over your brows. Watch our video for more tips.

Works well
Purchased

This is a great universal color. It goes on a little dark for me, as I have redish blonde hair, but when I use the little brush to blend, it comes out perfect. It's the best eyebrow pencil I've tried.

Very natural
Purchased

When using thin, short strokes, this pencil looks very natural.
I have blonde hair and light brown brows... If I use light strokes, it looks natural, but this could work really well for someone with dark hair also using more pressure when applying.
Very impressed with this, and I liked that it came with a "how-to" guide.

love it!

Fills in my sparse brows, while helps shape & tame with spoolie. Best of all it looks natural. Will definitely repurchase.

Love this brow pencil!
Purchased

I was really skeptical about whether or not this pencil would give me natural looking yet polished arches because of my deep skin tone. I'm so glad to say that it truly is universal! It's easy to use, and the brush on one hand is quite handy for getting that perfect brow look. Give it a try.

Brows on point
Purchased

This pencil is great. The color is perfect and the fact that you don't have to sharpen (therefore waste half or the pencil) is a selling point for me. It goes on smooth and stays all day. Win all around!

Beyond satisfied
Purchased

This product by far is the best thing I've found on birchbox yet. I used to use the popular benefit eyebrow pencil until I happened to see these awesome reviews and give it a try, you won't be disappointed! The texture is great the the brush is so ideal for not only spreading the pencil across my brows but also taming my bushy brows. I am most happy about how affordable this product is with such great quality as I usually stock up on a few, but they usually last me two months. If YBF ever makes any other items I wouldn't hesitate to try those as well.
