This brow pencil is so precise it’s hard to make a mess of application

The product

We don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that slows us down in the morning, it's a fiddly brow product that’s hard to apply.

Hence, Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Brow Pencil is basically our dream come true. 

The budget-friendly pencil boasts a precision applicator tip that allows you to draw on fine, hair-like strokes without going overboard. The result? The most natural-looking and defined arches you’ve ever seen. 

Plus, the formula is long-lasting, meaning you can confidently draw on your brows in the morning knowing they’ll hold up through a hot summer’s day and a sweat sesh at the gym.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say when they tried the pencil that makes brow makeup a breeze. 

The panel 

Beauty Crew sent the Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Brow Pencil to a panel of women aged 24 to 49 who were looking for a new brow makeup product to add to their routine. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Brow Pencil.

The micro, precision tip: Reviewers really liked the fact that the precision tip allowed them to create fine, hair-like strokes. Subsequently, they had more control when it came to how much product was distributed through their brows and it also minimised the likelihood of a messy result. 

The natural finish: Something reviewers kept mentioning was just how natural the brow pencil looked. It never looked overdone or too dark, and it created a soft, subtle shadow that enhanced their natural brow shape. 

How long it lasted: Reviewers were surprised by the product’s staying power, and a number of reviewers said the brow pencil had withstood a gym session, oily skin and hot days too.

The verdict

“I have tried so many brow pencils at each end of the price scale. Personally I prefer micro sized pencils over other products. I believe they are easier to use and you can get better precision with your strokes and outline. This micro pencil by Revlon is a great purchase and I would repurchase and recommend to others. It has great pigmentation and quality packaging. The formula is easy to blend and stays on all day. I think for this price point it is a must purchase!”

“This is a fantastic brow product for anyone looking to fill in and fill out their brows with the aim of looking as natural as possible. The colour pay off is gentle and the fine tip means that it's very difficult to mess up and gives you a good amount of control. I used this product to both fill in larger gaps and draw individual natural looking brow hairs - achieving both looks with ease. The tone of the colour is very natural and a true neutral in the soft black colour whereas I usually struggle with brow products pulling too warm on my skin tone, this shade matched my dark brows well and blended in seamlessly. I was impressed by how well this pencil worked, how forgiving it is to user error, how long the pigment lasted, and the overall results it helped me achieve that are better than many high end products that I have tried in the past. I would recommend this product to anyone in the market for a pencil style brow product.”

“As a new mum I’m always on the move, constantly time deprived and never have time to myself but I still want to look nice as it makes me feel better. This product is just a life saver, so easy to apply and my brows look so natural, because if you apply it gently you can build it up to get the look you are after. This pencil has quite a sharp tip which I normally don’t like but after I tried it I loved that you can get the precise strokes, but at the same time a soft look. I quite enjoyed the bristle brush that goes with it as I normally use it after I apply the pencil to soften the look, blend it in and achieve a natural result. I have very fair natural brows so the colour I was provided matched perfectly. I really didn’t expect that it would stay all day. My skin can be a bit oily especially during hot weather but the product still stays on all day even after a sweat session at the gym.”
