Elf Instant Lift Brow Pencil Review

I feel like I've been doing a lot of reviews lately, but it's because I've been branching out and trying new products, when in the past I would get stuck in a rut of buying the same product over and over. I actually hadn't planned on doing a review of this product, but I ended up loving it so much! Elf is such a great brand because their makeup is really affordable and great quality for the money.

I've been using the Boots eyebrow pencil from Target, and when I went to go get another one, they were out. My poor dad was with me at the time, and he tried so hard to find the pencil I was looking for, bless his heart. I put him out of his misery and just decided to try out the Elf pencil. I didn't really know much about it, and honestly I was not expecting much at all and thought I would end up replacing it when I went to a different Target.

I'm actually not quite sure what the whole "instant lift" part is supposed to mean because I don't really notice a lift in my eyebrows at all, they just look like a nicer version of my eyebrows, haha. The packaging of the pencil reminds me of the Mac eyebrow pencils since it's a twist pencil, and the product itself is very similar (for much cheaper). Overall, the packaging does not feel cheap at all, and the spooly is very nice!

 I also like the overall size of the pencil, and it's very easy to grip because it isn't too thin at all.

Here is a closer look at the product. The only thing that was a little challenging at first was the fact that the pencil isn't as opaque as other eyebrow pencils I've used in the past. It just takes a little bit extra to get it as dark as I like - not that I even like it that dark - but it isn't like other pencils I've used before. At first I didn't like this, but after using it for a couple of days it's actually kind of nice because it's easy to fix mistakes!

I also really like the quality of the product, and the whole formula of it. Some of the pencils I've used are kind of waxy and feel like they weigh down my eyebrows, but this one definitely doesn't. It blends really well and ends up looking very natural. Maybe that's what they mean by an instant lift, because it doesn't clump your eyebrows together?? We just might never know.

Here is another look at the spooly. I really like the size of it - it's a lot bigger than other ones I've used before! It's also nice that it's covered with the plastic lid. It is a bit rougher than usual, but it makes the product blend really well with my actual brows.

Overall, I am super happy with this pencil, and I would definitely recommend it for those who want natural looking eyebrows, but still want to make them pop. I honestly used to be one of those people who never understood why you would ever fill in your brows, but I'm so glad I started to. I was always just worried that it would make my face look ridiculous, but if you don't go too overboard, it just enhances your natural brows!

What is your favorite brow product?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
