YSL Dessin Des Sourcils Eyebrow Pencil


YSL Dessin Des Sourcils is without a doubt, the best eyebrow pencil that I have EVER used- and I’ve used a lot.

I have two major issues with most eyebrow pencils.

Firstly, I find it almost impossible to find the correct shade for my dark brown brows. The pencils are either too light with that horrid orangey under-tint or literally jet black. It’s like there’s no in-between.




My hair is naturally very dark brown, but black it is not and black pencils are way too harsh, while the majority of dark brown pencils are still too light, or for some unknown reason, way too orangey.

Anyone else find this? Anyway…




Secondly, while I appreciate the benefits of a softer pencil when you’re for example, wanting to line your eyes, I detested a soft eyebrow pencil. This is on account of my oily-combination skin.

I have trouble with my make-up literally sliding off my face throughout the day thanks to my overly active skin glands. Add into the mix a soft, waxy pencil and I can nigh on guarantee that by 2pm my eyebrows will be glistening un-naturally and if I’m really unlucky, may have slipped down my face.

As I’m sure you’ll agree, neither is a great look.




It makes it hard to apply from the get go too- even if I powder my brows, a soft pencil just seems to melt into my skin instantly upon application which make precision application impossible and just leaves my brows looking a thick, sloppy mess.

I was soooo happy when I discovered this brilliant pencil from YSL.




It is the most perfect match to my natural brow shade- 05 ebony. Now I know it says ebony but as you can see from my swatches it really isn’t black. It’s the deepest, darkest brown but it is definitely not black.

In terms of softness it is really quite a hard texture- it doesn’t melt into my skin and it absolutely stays in place all day long with no slippage.




Its sharp, precise nip allows for perfect application and the spoolie on the opposite end helps to soften and blend your strokes into your own brow seamlessly.

At £21 it is not cheap, BUT it is worth every single penny to find a pencil that matches perfectly and stays put!

YSL’s Dessin Des Sourcils Eyebrow Pencil is available in 4 shades and costs £21.
