    There is also a fab product to make the eyebrows grow, it´s called Talika Eyebrowcils, it´s proper to use on eyebrows and has an applicator for this effect.
    You can find it at Sephora and it´s about $25 i think.

    Yes, Rogaine is at the drugstore - I can't imagine that it would be expensive. And I bet you'd want to try Rogaine for women. I don't know...

    So I finally found the perfect eyebrow pencil for me ^_^
    It's the " Brow Definer " by Clarins.
    It looks quiet natural on me, and very easy to use. I'm posting a pic ( sorry
    if my camera is a bit fuzzy ).

    Retractable Brow Define

    I give it :magic: :magic: :magic: ½ out of 5

    [​IMG]

    It looks very natural, and my eyebrows do look longer.
    But it missed out on 1½ because of the price. It cost
    $ 34, but then again it's a refillable pencil so it only costs this much
    the first time you buy it.

    Thanks everyone for your advice :flower:

    I need to extend my eyebrows too but my problem is that I can't find an eyepencil that has a color to suit my eyebrows. Most brands sell black or dark brown. I can't take dark brown 'cos the extended part becomes very obvious and neither can I take black because it's just to harsh and fake on my pale skin. I think (as weird as it sounds) I need a dark grey. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem you have. I thought I was the only one who
    needed grey, good to know someone else do too ! :flower:

    I actually use black for my eyebrows and " extend " with grey.
    But there aren't any eyebrow pencils that come in grey as far as I know.

    So what I did was, I bought a darkgrey crayon pencil from L'oreal and use
    that one to extend and use the brush of my Clarins eyebrow pencil to
    make it look more natural rather than so " painted " or smudgy.

    It worked out fine. You might wanna give it a try. ^_^

    Whew Golden Butterfly ... so I'm not weird .... or maybe we are weird! :lol: I'll try looking for the Loreal one but I don't think I saw a darkgrey one the last time i checked. I don't color in between my eyebrows because I've actually got very thick brows except they don't "extend" enough. So I can only "extend" my brows. If I color in between my brows I end up looking rather Chinese opera-ish :shock: . I"ll definitely try to look for the crayon though. Thanks!

    ^ Yes we are one grey coloured eyebrow couple :lol:

    It doesn't nessecarily have to be L'oreal, any grey eyeliner will do.
    But make sure it's a rather " dry " pencil, that way it stays on for a longer
    time.

    Maybe I was a bit unclear, I actually paint my eyebrows black and extend
    a little at the end with grey to make them longer. But as you, I have to be
    very carely so I don't look too " painted on " :wink:

    Good luck ! :flower:

    Design Ebony drawing pencil, black/green, black
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]Product Name / DescriptionSKU#Design Ebony drawing pencil, black/green, black14420

    [​IMG][​IMG]this in "jet black (14420)" from www.sanford.com is really good for natural looking brows...

    i know its a drawing pencil, not a makeup pencil, but whatever :ninja:
    you can probably buy these at your local arts and craft store.

    im asian, so my brows are dark.
    i didnt dye my hair so my hair is very very dark brown/black (not jet black though) so i look awkward with brown brows and i look even weirder with black brows because its too dark.

    i fill my brows (both end and front) with this and its a dark grey/brown color.. its hard to describe but it looks very natural, with or without other makeup on.

    just give it a try, im sure its less than $5, and its GREAT...!!! :flower:

    also applying mascara (just a little bit) :ninja: on your brows can help....
    that is.. when you dont have time...
    just swipe it and go...
    not as good as the whole drawing/filling thing but definitely better than nothing...

    (gosh you must think that im really weird.. first a drawing pencil, than mascara on brows?:lol: )

    ^ I've got the mascara advice before, but the prob with my dark eyebrows is
    I have to be very careful how and what I apply because it always
    seem to end up looking " painted on ".

    Thanks for the tip though, might work for others :flower:

    I honestly dont think they need reshaping... they are not bushy or anything like that.... do not make the mistake of too thin brows...
