Jordana FabuBrow Eyebrow Pencil - 3 new shades! Swatches, before & after, review

Hello, Beautiful!

The Jordana FabuBrow isn't a new product, but there are three new shades that I think will better match a lot of brows. Back in December 2013 I tried the Jordana FabuBrow for the first time - and I liked it but the shades weren't an ideal match for me so I didn't reach for them. I never made an official blog post on it due to time constraints, but I did Instagram a collage of photos - including swatches - of shades 01 Taupe and 02 Medium Brown  -- CLICK HERE for that photo. However, the new shades I think are a home run hit.

The three new shades are: 04 Light Taupe, 05 Soft Brown, and 06 Midnight Brown. I no longer have the other shades to compare these to, but check out swatches and my before & after pic. A full review and product info after the pics!

The below Before & After shows me using the shade Light Taupe at first (the top before and after set of pics) - but I felt like the shade was a little too off in tone. So I tried the shade Midnight Brown (shown in the bottom before and after set of pics) and it was a much better match for my brow hairs. I didn't use Soft Brown because it was too red in tone. 

Also - please don't mind my need to pluck my eyebrows in these photos.

As I mentioned at the top of this post, I have already tried the Jordana FabuBrow Eyebrow Pencils in the past. The new shades, upon first looks, seemed like they'd be better matches for my brow hair. I was sure Light Taupe would be perfect but it turned out too yellow in tone on me. Midnight Brown, which looked so dark, use lightly was a far better match. I find they all still have a warm undertone to them. I wish more brow products out there would get on board with the ashier tones - especially for us brunettes.

As far as how the pencil works - it does a fine job. I don't really like brow pencils this thick though because I find that my brows are too thin to be precise with these, especially if they are not freshly sharpened for each use.

This pencil has a waxy consistency, which can be helpful in controlling your brow hairs but can also build up too fast if you use too much of the pencil. You really need to comb the product through - which brings me to what I really don't like about these pencils: the attached comb. I hate these little brush combs - HATE. Sure, they work in a pinch, but a spooley is just such a better choice and I'd rather pay extra for a pencil to have a spooley than this brush comb - which does only a sub-par job at combing the product through properly. For the purpose of the before and after pics in this post I did use the included attached brush comb (but in real life everyday I use a spooley).

I honestly don't reach for these pencils very much; my brows are just a bit too thin and sparse for a thicker pencil and I'm spoiled by the Anastasia Brow Wiz thinness. However, I do think this pencil will work for a lot of brows out there - and the three new shades are great additions!

Now let me know what you think...

  1. These look like great options! I like getting cheaper brow pencils since I go through them so quickly.
