Bring the Brow Bar With You: Get a Pencil, Wax and Comb for $9 With the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Sculptor

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Sculptor

As far as successful rebellion campaigns go, the long-running one being waged by my brows has been quite successful…from their point of view. If I had a fat tabby for every sparse spot or stray brow, I’d be living the cat lady high life, I tell ya.

Lately my forces have been attempting to squash the rebellion with L’Oreal’s new Brow Stylist Sculptor ($8.99, and available in Blonde, Brunette and Dark Brunette), a dual-ended product that comes with a pencil for brow filling on one end and a clear, matte setting wax on the other.

But that’s not all. You also get a stiff brush for combing through those unruly brow hairs, which is quite handy. It’s built right into one of the caps.

Just fill in any sparse spots using the brow filling pencil, comb through with the brush, and set the hairs in place with the wax.

I won’t go so far as to say that I’ve squashed the rebellion with these, but we’ve made progress…

I wear Deep Brunette, the darkest shade. It’s a dark neutral brown with a slight gray undertone. The brow pencil end feels waxy and soft, much like Benefit’s Brow Pencils. When I use it, I think my brows look great for five or six hours, but the formula breaks up slowly as the day wears on. On top of that, the wax only offers light control, and the bushiest parts of my brows could use something with stiffer hold.

Yes, the effect with these is subtle — it’s a natural, soft brow look — but I think they’re a pretty good product for the price. Fine in a pinch if you, like, lose your favorite Tom Ford brow pencil or tube of Anastasia Clear Brow Gel and need to find an affordable replacement to tide you over for a few days.

PRICE: $8.99
AVAILABILITY: Available in three shades at drugstores, Ulta and online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Below Deck? Best reality TV show of the year? I’m almost too ashamed to admit that I’m addicted to a show about people working on a yacht…

Almost. 🙂

    These look pretty good but I’d agree that you’d need something more than the wax to give it more of a hold-but I like the idea of dual ends with the wax on one & color on the other!

      Hi Kelly,

      I know, right? I like the industrial strength hold I get from Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. A little swipe and my brows don’t move for nothing.

      What’s your current brow routine like?

  5. I might check out the Blonde version. Although I never am happy with the drugstore colors.

    I’ve been loving the Rimmel Professional Brow pencil lately (in case you ‘re interested.)

  7. It’s really subtle. You wouldn’t see the difference if you didn’t point it out. BUT it does look really good. The difference is small but significant, if that makes sense.

    based on your review i probably wouldn’t be able to use these…at least not the wax part because my brow hairs would just overpower it…they have a mind of their own!
    but maybe these would be a good choice for someone who has very fine brow hairs that would be swamped by the more powerful gels/waxes out there?

  9. Ruchita says:

    I’ll have to check this out next time I’m at the store. I like the idea of having all my brow needs packaged in a single item!

    I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never heard of it (Below Deck)! Sometimes I feel like I’m living under a rock.

    I feel you on the brow woes. I think mine get worse every day. 🙁

  11. MonicaP says:

    Hmm, I’ll put this on my list to try .. I’m playing with a Revlon brow product right now .. I think it’s .. ok.
