I have sparse brows due to my health issues, so a good brow product is a must-have beauty item for me. For awhile now I've been using Tarte's emphasEYES Amazonian Clay Brow Mousse, which I've loved and didn't have any problems with - other than I had wished for an easier, on-the-go version -- like a pencil. As soon as I saw a pencil version debut on QVC I knew I had to order!

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses!
This is a stick pencil; not the traditional wooden pencil brow product. This brow pencil contains Amazonian Clay for all-day wear. It's also waterproof.
Buildable coverage depending on how hard you press/how you apply.
This is a long-wear product. For me, it lasts all day - especially on a normal day. Hotter days where I'm outdoors I may need to touch-up.
Three shades currently available: Taupe (for blonde, silver/gray, and auburn/red hair), Medium Brown (for auburn to deeper brown hair), and Rich Brown (for deep brown to black hair).
This is a twist-up, very thin, pencil - although not traditional wooden pencil. Each end has a pull-off cap. On one end is the brow product and the other end is the spooley.
You can purchase a set of two full-sized brow pencils for $28 on QVC's website.
Tarte emphasEYES for brows Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Pencil Review:
As I mentioned at the top of this post, I already own the Tarte emphasEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse, which I loved but wished for a more travel friendly, on-the-go version. This fits my needs perfectly.
The effect is still natural and long-wearing, although maybe a bit softer of a brow - which is nice. I like how thin it is, but I just worry I'm going to run through it too quickly. Since I have a back-up I'm not too worried about that right now.
Over all, I highly recommend checking this out. Tarte really makes some great brow products!
