Had better luck with the Eye Lights Matte....I prefer the Brow Duality over the Pro Pencil, but I'd recommend it to warmer skintones who wanted a less dramatic sculpted eyebrow (i.e. my fellow eyebrow obsessors who work in offices or other more conservative work environments).

A multitasking pencil that works as a brow and facial highlighter, a concealer, or an ideal priming base for eyeshadow.

What it does:
This portable pencil does the work of five makeup bag must-haves in one convenient tool. Use it to conceal blemishes, dark circles, and flaws, or to highlight the brow, face, and eyes. Cover brow hairs as they grow back in, line your lips, or use as an eyeshadow primer for lids. The Pro Pencil does it all.
