Make Up Academy Brunette Eyebrow Pencil


MUA Brunette Eyebrow Pencil

The MUA Brunette Eyebrow pencil is a steal at just £1.

The pencil comes with brush at the end for tidying up your eyebrows before & during application. This was a great little feature & I found the brush head just the right size for doing my brows as I always find eyebrow brushes a little too big for my freakishly small face.

Eyebrow Shade Comparison Chart
The colour is very similar to MAC’s Stud & Spiked (£11) but the creamy texture makes it appear darker.  The colour goes on even but I found because I was used to wearing MAC’s Stud which doesn’t need sharpening I had to keep on re-sharpening the pencil to get a nice crisp edge. My little trick around this was to keep the MUA pencil in the fridge to help the pencil ‘firm’ up.  Brunette is perfect for darker skin lovelies but MUA as do a eyebrow pencil in 'Blonde' for fairer skins.

After filling in my eyebrows I always do a little 'clean up' with concealer to get a nice sharp line round my brows. On my first attempt I found the colour 'bled' as it was so creamy, so I used a damp cotton bud to clean up & then ran my concealer round the edges. Perfect. Once I get used to using a eyebrow pencil again I’m sure this won’t be a problem.

Whilst I do love my MAC Stud I have found the perfect dupe here with MUA’s Brunette & with the £10 I’ve saved I can buy myself even more make-up from MUA!

MUA is availble exclusively online & at Superdrug.

  1. I can never have enough brow pencils and I love how dark this one appears to be in your comparison chart. The bleed is a bit of a concern but I guess once you get used to it you will be able to get it spot on.

  2. I've managed to sort out the bleed. I am a expert on the MUA brunette eyebrow pencil!! This is definitely going in my top ten of make-up must haves for 2012!

  3. This sounds so good. I really want to try it because I've heard so many good things. Fantastic review, I love how your personality seems to comes across too! xx
