We get it. You wouldn't trade your current brow routine for anything in the world. And trust us, we feel the same way about ours, but this shouldn't stop you from going beyond your beloved brow pencil either. Who knows, you might even find something better than your holy grail. Need proof? Check out our newest favorite finds below!
1. Brow Liner
Who would've thought that using liner on eyebrows would be a thing? Well it is now, and it works like a charm. The precise tip on brow liners allow you to draw thin, hair-like strands on any sparse areas. If you like your brows bold, they also work for outlining your desired shape!

2. Dual-Purpose Brow Gel
Brow gel usually serves as the last step in a proper brow routine. A pencil typically goes first, doing the preliminary fill-in. But with Sleek's new brow gel, you can probably skip pencil altogether. Their Brow Intensity has a sponge tip that can fill in any gaps, along with a mascara-like wand you can blend the product with. Plus points for the built-in highlighter for the browbone!

3. Crayon Brow Pomade
It's no secret that traditional brow pomade isn't the best for a quick brow sculpt. The cream is too fragile, which requires you to be extra careful with your application. Thankfully, the texture of pomade now comes in crayon form! In a few strokes, the cream will fill in any empty spaces and give your brows a darker, fuller look.
However, we don't recommend this for those with thin eyebrows. This might suit those with thicker arches that need just a little shading.

4. Asymmetrical Tip Pencil
Classic eyebrow pencils aren't going obselete just yet, because this new shape is as user-friendly as it can get. Here, the pointed side serves its original purposes—it outlines the shape and fills in any gaps. But, the addition of a wider end allows you to fill in your brows without leaving any harsh lines. You won't have to erase your hard work with a spoolie again.

5. Tapered Spoon Brow Gel
Gone are the days when brow gel wands looked like plain mascara ones. Mascara wands are great for setting the brows, sure, but a change in shape guarantees a life-changing effect. Brow gels applied with a smaller, tapered brush and hair-separating bristles won't simply set your brows, they avoid any clumping, too. All while naturally adding more volume. This brush shape is less likely to mess up any makeup underneath as well, since the bristles aren't dense enough to reach the skin.

6. Brow Primer
Drawing eyebrows on dry skin can be a bit of a nightmare. Pencil and powder alike won't stick to the skin, and even gels end up looking patchy. Thankfully, a quick remedy exists in brow primer. Like regular face primers, this product helps brow products apply smoother on the skin. The clear gel will bring your brow hairs to life as well! Use it under makeup or at night to give your arches a keratin and soy protein treat.
