Towards the end of 2019, L’Oreal Paris introduced Brow Artist Xpert, a new mechanical brow pencil, to their Brow Artist range. This one has a triangular shaped tip, for precise application, and a soft styling brush to groom brows into place and blend the pencil for a natural looking finish.
I was sent the Brow Artist Xpert pencil in ‘Warm Brunette’, which is a rich chocolate brown. I thought that this colour may have been too light for my naturally very dark brown (almost black) eyebrows, but after it had been applied and blended, it looked really natural.
The applicator tube is cylindrical in appearance, with a spoolie shaped styling brush on one end (for shaping and blending), with the mechanical wind-up eyebrow pencil on the other side. Once the coloured cap is removed, it reveals a triangular shaped tube end, with a triangular shaped soft eyebrow pencil inside.
I’m not sure why they made this pencil triangular shaped, as after the first use the triangle ended up with a soft round point, and every use after that was basically a soft round tip with a sharp unused triangle base underneath. It’s an expensive marketing gimmick, if you ask me, as I’m basically now applying a rounded pencil to my brows each time I use it.
Anyway, triangles and rounded tips aside, this pencil is really easy to use. Simply create the outline shape of your brows with the tip, fill in the inner section, using light feathery strokes, and then blend it with the brush to get a very natural looking result. It really does blend beautifully and looks extremely natural. I’ll definitely be purchasing another one when this one runs out.
L’Oreal Brow Artiste Xpert is available from Farmers, selected pharmacies and L’Oreal stockists.
