Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Espresso Review, Swatches, and Pics

Read ALL about my review process including how I take swatches, photos, and more here.

Next up in our Tom Ford Beauty reviews is the Brow Sculptor in Espresso ($42) which was also sent to me by the brand’s PR for review consideration.

Brows are super important to your overall look because they frame the face and a good set can actually make you look younger and more alert. A bad set…well, let’s not even talk about such things. While brow shapes are in one minute and out the next, one brow style that will always look great is one that fits both your eye and face shape. You can read more on this in All About Brows.

Now back to Tom Ford Brow Sculptor…it’s a duo brow pencil and grooming brush all in one sleek package and comes in four shades: Blonde, Taupe, Chestnut, and Espresso. I usually don’t put much makeup on my own brows, but when I’m due for a threading but can’t seem to get down to the salon, I do use a little pencil and a spooly (brush that looks like a mascara wand) to groom them a bit, so I loved that Brow Sculptor has both tools in one. Another thing to love is the calligraphy-style tip of the pencil. It makes for the PERFECT pencil strokes that really mimic the fibers of hair. Like seriously it makes the process almost foolproof because the pencil itself is slanted in the way the brows naturally grow.

My brows looked totally natural using Brow Sculptor and I can’t even stop talking about how awesome the slanted pencil is.

Bottom line: This is nice-to-have if spending $42 on a brow pencil doesn’t seem crazy to you. You could definitely get the same end result using other tools, but if you’re sold on the ease of the slanted tip, this is nice to pick up.

Stay tuned for more Tom Ford Beauty reviews! I still have blush, nail polish, lipstick, and an eyeshadow quad to dish on :)

      Hey Ms Farrah!

      Ha! Right, it is Christmas…lol. Honestly you can use just about any brow pencil or even a shadow or liner about a shade lighter than your hair (you can always go in with a darker color to add dimension) and a spooly can be found at just about any drugstore or beauty supply store. If you like the wedge shape (which I haven’t seen on any pencils I’ve come across), you can use a shadow or gel along with a slanted brush. The Sleek MakeUP Brow Kit I reviewed here: has everything you need all in one kit. Benefit Cosmetics makes a similar one with Brow Zing and I really like the Senna Cosmetics brow kit because it has three different powder colors and allows you to mix for a custom color.

      For pencils, I really like MAC Brow Pencil because it’s thin and allows for precise brow hair-like strokes.

      This Tom Ford one is nice because of the edge of the pencil and the all-in-one packaging is really convenient so that’s what it has going for it…lol.

  3. Hey Cece from up north! You can pretty much use just about any brow pencil and a spooly can be found at any drugstore or beauty supply store. The slanted edge of the pencil is not something I’ve seen before (though I haven’t seen every brow pencil…lol) but you can duplicate that with a slanted brush and brow powder. Sleek MakeUP makes a nice kit that includes a slanted brush and powder (I reviewed it here: Benefit Brow Zing is similar. Hope this helps :)
