Revlon Brow Fantasy-- 2-in-1 pencil and gel

Revlon Brow Fantasy

Revlon Brow Fantasy is a two-in-one brow product. On one end it has an eyebrow pencil and on the other is a tinted brow gel.

Revlon claims it "Colors, shapes and sets brows for a polished well groomed look all day. Pencil defines and fills in with soft blendable natural color that wears for hours. Sheer tinted gel styles shades and sets brows."

It comes in four shades: dark blonde, brunette, dark brown, and black. You can find Revlon Brow Fantasy at your local drugstore or Ulta Beauty Supply for $7-8.

Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil

The pencil half of Revlon Brow Fantasy is your typical brow pencil. Nothing special, but it gets the job done. It's a firm pencil, so it's possible to apply pretty precisely. You can also sharpen it to a fine tip. I have not had any problems with the pencil smearing or wearing off over the course of the day.

Revlon Brow Fantasy Gel

The other side of the Revlon Brow Fantasy has a brow gel and wand. The brow gel has a slight tint it. I would classify it as a soft-hold gel. It will help keep the hair in place, but they won't be glued down. The wand is thin and straight. It does not feel particularly high quality. Application can be a bit difficult as the gel tends to clump. You can work out the clumps, but getting it to that point is less than ideal.

My Overall Impression of Revlon Brow Fantasy

Revlon Brow Fantasy is an OK product. I will continue to use it, but I probably will not repurchase it. I don't believe in spending a ton of money on brow products because high-end really does not make that big of a difference on the brow. That being said, I've seen other products around the same price point that have performed better than Revlon Brow Fantasy.

I have been happy with the color of the dark blonde. It works well for me. Although their four available colors have a wide enough range to work on most ladies, I think that it won't work everyone. I suspect those with red or orange in their hair would have some trouble.

I do like that both products come in one stick. The packaging is fairly sturdy, and it is easy to find in a makeup bag. It travels very well.

      Hi Modern lady,

      I used to work for Revlon in Ireland and New Zealand and still love a number of their products. Nice review done on this. I thought the price was incredibly good for a duo pencil (dollars) but do find all American brands to be much cheaper when bought there as opposed to buying here. God job! Up, useful and interesting.

      Thanks for the great review. I am a big fan of Revlon products, but I don't think I'll waste my money on this one. I need a strong brow gel to hold my brows in place. Thanks for saving me time and money.

      moonlake, overplucking can cause brow loss, but our brows also thin as we age. It's hard to pinpoint the cause of hair loss for that reason. Thanks for commenting.

      My brows are disappearing as I age and I hate it. I will try anything that will make them look better. My Mom says it is because I plucked to much. I was never much of a plucker so she's wrong her brows are none gone. I think I inherited the loss of brows. I heard on tv that your should never have creams on them because it causes the hair not to come in. I have always put face cream on my brows now I don't. Voted up.

      I also have blonde hair and have that problem. I've found that pencils work best when applied gingerly, and for most days gels with brushes are the way to go.

      I like to use a brow pencil because I have blonde eye brows. However, it is very difficult to find a product that is pale enough. Many of the colours (even some called Dark Blonde) make me look very odd.

      I have found products with a brush easy to use - a pencil needs a steady hand!
