Dupe Alert | L’Oréal Brow Artist Xpert Versus MAC Brow Sculpt Brow Pencil

Dupe alert, folks! Maybe you remember the MAC Brow Sculpt Brow Pencil I reviewed last fall? Well, I recently stumbled into a great dupe at only half the price: the L’Oréal Brow Artist Xpert.

Just like the MAC Brow Sculpt Pencil, the L’Oréal Brow Artist Xpert is a dual-ended eyebrow pencil with a triangle-shaped brow pencil on one end and a spoolie brush on the other.

The L’Oréal Brow Artist Xpert has the exact same texture as the MAC Brow Sculpt Brow Pencil (a bit stiffer than most brow pencils) and provides the same natural look (#Iwokeuplikethis).

And the best part? The L’Oréal Brow Artist Xpert is only 15 CHF, which is almost half of what the MAC Brow Sculpt Brow Pencil costs. Yep, this is legit dupe material!

What do you use to shape and fill in your eyebrows? Have you tried either of these eyebrow pencils?

  1. Heel subtiel! Ik gebruik als het poeder of de pomade van Christian Faye

  2. Heel subtiel! Ik gebruik altijd het poeder of de pomade van Christian Faye

  3. perfect dupe for half the price, that’s cool…i also like a bit stiff brow pencils, it just gives more control :)

  4. Looks good. I use also a brow pencil.

  5. Doet me ook denken aan de brow definer van Anastasia! Ziet er iig goed uit :D

  6. Ya know, I’ve noticed, for a few weeks or so (?), that your brows looked a bit different….it’s the pencil (or my imagination)! Not as dark as the Essence one, right? I like this, a lot! I can’t tell any difference between the brunette shades on my screen though. Is the cool more red? Your brows always look amazing….I wish I had 1/4 of ’em!


    • Good eye! I’m letting them go a bit more natural lately. I only pluck the middle now where they meet (unibrow problems) and don’t define the tip and angle as much anymore. And I’m only using the tiniest bit of brow pencil these days.

  7. Das sieht echt schick aus! LG

  8. Wat een mooi en natuurlijk resultaat! Zelf houd ik ook wel van wat natuurlijkere wenkbrauwmake-up.

  9. Oh super bedankt voor de tip!

  10. Great score! Your brows look put-together but still very natural.

  11. Nog niet geprobeerd, maar je hebt me benieuwd gemaakt! Thanks voor de tip!

  12. Ooh, this looks and sounds great! xx

  13. Oh that’s great! I am all up for dupes :)! I religiously use the Bobbi Brown brow pen, have you checked it out? It’s really good!

  14. Same brow for half the price!

  15. Oh, I might have to try it if these are in the USA. Cool Blonde is nice. Not too cool but not as warm or yellow as most blonde brow things.

  16. Wow, they really do look very similar!! I love a good drugstore dupe! The only problem is that my brows are quite thin and small, so these triangular-shaped pencils are hard for me to navigate…. :((

  17. Never tried those brands but I’m hucked on the one from ABH and I can’t live without it :-D .. those look nice tho too :)
