NARS has just released two brow products: a brow pencil and a brow gel. They come in four colors from black to blond (NARS Perfector) and from clear to dark brown for the gel. I received the brown ones: Brow Gel in Piraeus (medium brown) and Brow Perfcetor in Caucase (brown). I usually prefer a brow wax like the one in the Younblood Brow Artiste) and not a gel, because it allows for more control. But NARS Brow Gel is perfectly functional as long as you remember to wipe about 90% of the product the brush picks on the edge of the tube, and even then you need to tissue off some of the excess before applying. Otherwise you get way too much color on your brows and it's going to feel crunchy and stiff when dry. Seriously, practice and experiment before you leave the house with this stuff in your brows.
NARS Brow Perfector pencil has much less of a learning curve. It's actually one of the best in class as far as I'm concerned, as the pencil appears and feels hard (I couldn't even swatch on the back of my hand, but applies like a charm on the eyebrows and takes less effort or tugging the classic Shu Uemura pencil).
