Huda Beauty #BombBrows Microshade Brow Pencil is about to turn accepted brow wisdom on its head. For years we've reconciled our slightly asymmetric brow shapes with the age old adage that 'eyebrows are sister, not twins.' Except Huda Kattan, CEO of Huda Beauty and one of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet according to TIME Magazine, doesn't agree.

In fact, she's spent the last three years coming up with a brow product that would create identical arches, even in the hands of amateurs. Meet #BombBrows, a waterproof, pin-thin pencil (0.9mm to be exact) with microblading-like results. 

The formula is equally noteworthy: coconut oil and stearic acid, aka the waxy substance derived from shea butter, ensures the pencil has just enough slip so you barely need to apply any pressure for drawing on fine strokes. When you add in castor oil, which is a rich source of ricinoleic acid thought to condition brows for healthy growth, #BombBrow becomes even more appealing.

When choosing from the eight hues from #BombBrows' lineup, Kattan recommends going a shade darker to make the strokes of the pencil look as natural and realistic as possible. There's also a handy spoolie brush at the other end to help you brush up your brows for that laminated effect.

Starting February 23, the Huda Beauty #BombBrows Microshade Brow Pencil will be available for $17 [£15] on hudabeauty.com (opens in new tab)
