I’m Loving this Long Lasting Eyebrow Pencil by Charlotte Tilbury

posted in: Makeup | 4

Recently I have become completely obsessed with my brows. I haven’t been happy with them for a while and I felt I needed a new product which will give them the WOW factor. I went to my local Fenwicks where I tried out about 10 different eyebrow products from about 10 different brands. In the end, I settled for Brow Lift by Charlotte Tilbury and I am loving it! It’s the best long lasting eyebrow pencil that I have come across.

What is the Brow Lift?

The Brow Lift is a 3 in 1 eyebrow tool to achieve shape, lift and shade. Start with the shade, use the angled shaped pencil to fill in your brows. Next, shape your brows using the brush to get rid of excess colour, it will also give your brows a smoother, more finished look. The last feature is the lift, this is a highlighter, you use it under the brow and it instantly lifts and defines your brows.

The Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift comes in 5 different colours. From dark to light they are Naomi, Super Model, Brooke’s, Rita and Grace K. The colour I bought is Brooke’s, its a medium brown which goes perfectly with my ashy coloured eyebrows.

Why I love this Long Lasting Eyebrow Pencil

Unlike other eyebrow pencils which are completely powder based, the Brow Lift is part gel based. This means that it lasts for longer and it helps your eyebrows look more natural too. Over the duration of the day, powders tend to lose their effect whereas, this eyebrow pencil doesn’t because it has that gel combination so it lasts beautifully. With a gel pencil, it is also easier to get a more accurate result and there’s no powder fallout.

Another feature that I love is the angled tip of the pencil. One tip of the pencil is slightly thicker than the other, this makes it so much easier to get a natural look. The thin tip is perfect for those areas where there is a hair missing and you want to draw in hairs. The thicker end of the tip is perfect for a softer filled-in look.

The Brow Lift is honestly, the easiest and most natural looking brow pencil I have used and it’s really long lasting too. I’ve even tested out how long it lasts for. I applied my makeup early in the morning at around 7:30 and I kept it on until around midnight. And guess what, my eyebrows still looked flawless at the end of the day, exactly the same as they had looked in the morning when I applied them.

The Downers 

Like more or less every product, the Brow Lift also has its negatives. For me its the highlighter. Maybe my skin is too light and the highlighter would look good on someone darker, I don’t know! But on me, it was way too yellow to use as a highlighter under my brows. It just looked wrong. I find often when a product tries to be too much, something gives. It’s a shame because it does take away from the product a bit and I think it would have been so easy to get it right.

However, despite the highlighter not quite being right I still love this long lasting eyebrow pencil and if you’re looking for that perfect pencil, I highly recommend checking the Brow Lift out. If you go to your local Charlotte Tilbury counter, the makeup artists there are usually very helpful in finding the right colour.

To finish off the look you can use Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Brow. This is a gel which you brush over your brows with and it keeps every hair in place.

    This eye brow pencil looks great. I really like that it is part gel based. I really need that extra stick to get through the whole day. I am glad you mentioned about this product being a touch too “yellowie”. I too have very fair skin and I often appear “washed out”. Good to know that other people have this issue as well. My question to you is, is there a 2nd product in this range that would be better suited to fair skin?

      An eyebrow product really has to be bought according to your eyebrow colour, not skin colour. Only the highlighter is yellowy so it doesn’t actually effect the pencil itself. When I want to use a highlighter, I just use a different one instead. It doesn’t actually take away from the product because the pencil is the main thing.

    You’re not the only one obsessed with their brows. Mine are a little scant, probably to do with my age. I’m always on the lookout for a pencil that is not too heavy.
    Most pencils I buy, and you can’t try them out first because they are covered in plastic, are too soft and it takes a very light touch to get an even colour. I’m forever taking the pencil off and starting again. In fact putting my eyebrows on takes longer than the rest of my makeup!
    I will certainly try this product and hopefully it will suit me. I just hope it’s not too soft and dark and can make some fine hairlike lines to fill in.

      Hi, don’t worry, you won’t have that problem with this pencil. It doesn’t apply to dark or heavy at all. It’s really easy to use and I hope you love it like I do!
