Nars Brow Perfector Pencils ($22 each) are twist-up colors that add a touch of emphasis to the brow while still providing a natural look. Unlike the Nars Brow Gels which is delivered on a large brush that can cover a brow in a single sweep and (if enough product is used) sculpt the brow’s shape, the Nars Brow Perfectors are a softer, gentler way to add color and shape to a brow.

These come in four shades:

  • Salzbourg is a soft light brown, suitable for very light brows
  • Kalamata is a light-medium brown
  • Caucase is brown (this shade and Kalamata are quite close in color).
  • Suriname is black.

These aren’t meant to be sharpened, rather they come out of the plastic holder by a quick little twist. Their shape is very slightly oval to help you direct the size of the stroke that you’d like to use.

I felt that the pigmentation of these is quite controllable depending on how much pressure you use when feathering the brow. It’s important to be consistent–if you mix heavy/light pigmentation, you’ll get a spotty effect.  Consistent pressure (whether for heavy or light application) works best.  These give all-day lasting power.

The Nars Brow Perfectors work quite well–I’ve switched between Caucase and Kalamata and liked the natural effect. I had no problems with fading or the like throughout the day. If you find a good color match, these are well worth a look.

  1. Personal note to Francois Nars: shame on you for not even considering redheads. Most of your line is not complimentary to us. I would like to tell you how I really feel but it wouldn’t get past comment moderation.

    • Hi Deb,

      I’m not a redhead, but every time I see a new release like this, I always think, “But what about all the gorgeous redheads? What about us silver foxes?” I don’t know why so many brands fail to address our needs. Of well, at least I found a deep soft gray that works well for me–Clé de Peau #204.

  2. Suriname actually looks cool-toned enough for us dark brunettes – I’d be curious to see how it would look on my brows…

  3. Do any compare to the old Taupe from Chanel? I need to stop by & check these out – I have been using Blonde Clair from Chanel and Lingering from MAC – Miss my old Taupe.

  4. Love this post, definitely going to try one of these out! Thanks for the color comparison!!!
