My Review of Eyebrow Lifter & Filler

Create polished and defined brows for a flawless fuller look! The “lift” pencil’s sheer light-reflecting pigments act as an arch support under the brows to enhance and outline the shape for a more youthful and awakened look. While the “fill” pencil shades in the eyebrow to blend in the natural sh...

Cons: Too Soft, Heavy

Best Uses: Everyday, Travel

Describe Yourself: Classic Style

Skin Tone: Medium

I bought the ivory/dark pencil. Pigmentation (on both sides) is very good, something that I wouldn't exactly expect from ELF. The pencil itself is big, amount is good enough to last you a while since you need very little of it. Here is where the important part comes in: Applying it can be tricky! In my opinion, you can't apply it directly to your brows, I suggest using a brush for that natural look. The first time I applied it I felt like I was applying an emollient lipstick to my brows...So it is thick/heavy but what I like is that I can smooth out the thickness with a great eyebrow brush much like my MAC brush #263. This is what I like about it, the fact that I can smooth on a little bit and I can blend it with whatever brush I wish and it looks nice and natural. The 'lifter' color is very nice. That too is a little thick but nothing I can't fix with my trusty highlighting makeup brush. I like to smooth it on and blend it smoothly with my brush. I wanted to make note that this specific lifter color is very pretty, very pigmented and matte. The best part is that both colors are matte, there is no shimmer or frost. It's so sad that this pencil had to be too soft because I'm wondering what kind of mess it will make when it comes time to sharpen it, lol.
Would I recommend it? probably so. Would I buy again? Yes.



  1. thanks for the review i think i will try this i've been looking for stuff to do my eyebrows better with.

  2. Thanks! I've been looking for a good eyebrow pencil. I'm not sure if I want to buy this because it's thick and heavy. My eyebrows are pretty thick, but I want them to be a bit longer. I currently have a contest going on my blog. You interested in joining?

  3. Thanks for the review. I'm the same as Y - i have thicker eyebrows - so I don't know if this one is for me either.

  4. Great review!

    I purchased the eyebrow kit and I love it.

  5. Hey everyone,
    This pencil works great (i forgot to mention) if kept cold like right before you put it on, put in the fridge-it hardens it a bit so it's not too soft. I love this pencil though, especially the highlighter part :)

  6. Thanks for the review. I hope they have this at the store I buy ELF at :)

  7. As soon as I get my cash flow straight and my own credit card, I'm so treating myself to a makeup bonanza starting with E.L.F, NYX, LA Colors, Coastal Scents, and whatever else I come across! Can't wait, this ELF lifter & Filler is already in my shopping bag, woot-woot!
    Any suggestions for a good foundation-liquid or cream, both high-end and inexpensive? What about Revlon's Colorstay; which shade should I get?
