No matter how exhausted we are running out of the house on any given morning, a few things are non-negotiable: our phone, our keys, our reusable coffee cup to go, and our brows.
Stepping out the door without at least a swipe of brow gel over our arches is unheard of — which is why we're always game to try a new brow pencil in hopes of finding the very best. This year, Refinery29 staffers tested a handful of brow enhancers, and we edited our favorites down to five formulas actually worth your cash.
Ahead, the five pencils and gels that will make your face feel complete, including the three that came away with a Beauty Innovator Award this year and two worthy runner-ups.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.
