When it comes to brow products, I can be quite fussy and tend to be a little sceptical when trying anything new as it’s rare for me to find a brow product I love. Sure I have many brow products in my collection, but there’s only a select few I use religiously and repurchase time and time again. I have repurchased the Makeup Revolution Duo Brow Definer at least three times so far as I love it and one pencil lasts me for a few months. Before discovering the Revolution Duo Brow Definer, I’d not found any brow products I really enjoyed from any of the Makeup Revolution brands but their Duo Brow Definer really is brilliant and it’s just £2.50. When I saw that the new Revolution Pro range had a few different brow products, I purchased the Revolution Pro Brow Cushion as well as the Revolution Pro Microblading Precision Brow Pencil.
Considering how much I love the Duo Brow Definer, I wasn’t sure if I’d like the new Revolution Pro Microblading Precision Brow Pencil as it’s slightly pricier at £4 (and contains less product than the Definer) but the shade is range is much much better with eight different shades whereas there’s just three for the brow definer. I chose the Dark Brown shade which is the same shade I have in the Duo Brow Definer too, and when the Revolution Pro pencil arrived it was clear that the ‘inspiration’ behind the design was most definitely the ABH Brow Wiz.
The pencil is retractable and has a spoolie on the opposite end to help blend the pencil for a more natural finish. The lead within the pencil is very small just like the Brow Wiz allowing you to create precise strokes throughout the brows. I find this pencil to be softer than the Brow Wiz, as I can draw individual hairs with the Brow Wiz even when it’s months old but with this pencil once the initial precise shape had softened, I couldn’t get the same precise ‘microblading’ effect. It’s still a precise brow pencil as it’s tiny, and when you compare the Brow Wiz which is £22 and this is just £4 it’s a no brainer if you can find a good shade match.
For £4 it isn’t bad but for me it’s not something I’d repurchase as the Duo Brow Pencil is cheaper, you get more product and it lasts longer on the skin and doesn’t smudge. One of my testing days of this pencil was during the mini heat wave we had in Mid April and one of those days it was 27 degrees and it didn’t cope in the heat unfortunately but how rare are 27 degree days here in the UK?! Dark Brown is a neutral toned deep brown which works well for my brows, but I’m so impressed with the shade range within the Pro range as you’re bound to find a usable shade when you have eight to choose from.
The Revolution Duo Brow Pencil remains my number one drugstore brow pencil for now, but I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of the Revolution brow products?
