MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection
MAC Impeccable Brow Pencils: Dirty Blonde, Blonde, Taupe, Black

MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection: Brow Pencils Reviews, Photos, Swatches

New for the collection are Impeccable Brow Pencils. The new brow pencil is available in four shades, and the names do correspond to what probably fits the majority. I’m more of a brow powder kind of girl, having used MAC Espresso Eyeshadow for about six years now, as my go-to for brows. I like this, but I don’t love it. For those who want more definition, pencil is definitely a better option than shadow. I would still suggest using a fluffier brush like the 266 or a clean mascara wand to brush through brows for a softer, more natural look.

Impeccable Brow Pencil ($15.00 U.S. / $18.00 CDN)

  • Blonde is a honeyed light-medium brown.
  • Dirty Blonde is a neutral to cool-toned light medium brown.
  • Taupe is a slightly cool-toned light espresso brown.
  • Black is a brown-black. This is the darkest shade of the bunch, but it doesn’t read super, ultra black — though it is still dark and obviously pretty close to black!

Tutorial for filling in your brows! :)

No matter how hurried I am, I try to take time to fill in my brows. It really helps define and enhance their shape, and I find it always gives me a more polished look–even if I’m not wearing any makeup otherwise. It’s pretty simple — all you need is a thin, angled brush (like the MAC 266) and a brow-colored powder (I use MAC Espresso eyeshadow). Some common shades for brows by MAC are Omega, Wedge, Cork, and Brun, as well.
