Everyone’s doing line extensions for brows! Thank goodness, too, that beauty world has woken up to the fact that brows can be multi-shade and not just variations on mouse brown. The new colours, which launch in March, are Blond Clair for naturally light brows, Noisette, with golden touches making it suitable for red/light brown brows and Brun Brunette, a warm, deep brown.
I’ve swatched the three new shades above – first is Blonde Clair, then Noisette and finally Brun Brunette. I thought last year was the big brow obsession year, and that this year we’d be a bit more over it, but clearly not!
The Bourjois Brow Pencils, in formula, are quite hard which means you can get a good, fine point on them when sharpening (although it is mid-winter, so there is no way I’m seeing these at their ambient consistency and if you prefer a hard pencil, keep it in the fridge, then you’ll always have the fineness) and there’s a brush on the lid so you can do a quick post-pencil groom.
They’re £4.99 a pop, so if you haven’t given in to brow grooming, then this is a cheaper way to see if you like the trend before investing in some of the pricier brow gels.
Actually, an interesting conversation regarding Brow Gels came up on Twitter – apparently, back in the 1980’s, Estee Lauder was the first brand to ‘invent’ a brow gel – it was simply called Brow Gel and came in a clear formula. #whoknew?

The colours seem a bit too warm-toned for me, but I think the formula sounds great!

Nice to see brow pencils in other colours besides brown and black. Brun Brunette looks a little too light for my eyebrows, but I appreciate the concept.
These look really good, I’m always looking for a new eyebrow pencil!
These sound fab! I’m a bit of a brow addict!
Need to try these! The only brow product I seem to get along with is elf brow kit in ash blonde… I hope the lightest one isn’t too orange toned! 🙂 pencils are so easy though and the price point is good! LHBx
