Before I got started on writing this NYX Automatic Eyebrow Pencil review, I went to read the MAC Automatic Eyebrow Pencil review written 11 months ago. I love reading old posts, they make me realize how much I’ve grown, how my writing style has improved, photography skills have progressed, and some throw me back to the moment when I was writing them, allowing me to relive memories.
If I had access to endless supplies of MAC products without forking out a single cent (your wish, my wish, every makeup obsessed person’s wish), I would say the MAC Eyebrow Pencil is an ideal pencil. There are about 5 shades to choose from on the MAC website (I don’t know why Brunette isn’t one of them. It’s available in MAC Singapore though), a precise tip, and since I have endless free supply to MAC products, I can simply throw one away when I twist it up too much causing the product to break.
But because the probability of that wish coming true is as good as believing that Bun Bun will become a real fairy, and my pocket and brain were telling me there must be as good and cheaper alternatives to the MAC automatic brow pencil out there, I soon found myself in possession of the NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil.
Pigmented Brow Color
You don’t need a lot of effort to get great color payoff, and this intense pigmentation might be a bane to some since you might have to be light-handed to avoid having dark slugs as brows at first. Once you get the hang of it though, this NYX brow pencil is a great time saver since just a few strokes are needed to alter light-colored brows to defined ones.
NYX Auto Brow Pencil has better staying power than MAC Auto Brow Pencil.
