Easy Breezy Brow Draw & Fill
CoverGirl’s Easy Breezy Brow Draw & Fill is a nifty two-in-one tool for quickly shaping and shading brows.
On one end of this dual-sided product is a retractable, slanted brow pencil. It’s wide enough to quickly fill in brows without being cumbersome but can also be angled for a bit more precision. The texture goes on smoothly but isn’t overly creamy, allowing it to set to a durable matte finish that resists fading as the day goes on.
On the other end, you’ll find the “cushion point” mentioned in the claims. This is essentially a tiny rounded sponge saturated with brow powder. It’s intended as a finishing step to further fill, blend, and set the brow color.
We found this fragrance-free duo worked great together, and each could also be used individually depending on what kind of brow look you’re going for. CoverGirl got it right—this is an easy, breezy, handy brow filler with shades that range from soft blonde to deep brown. We only wish there were options for auburn to red brows.
- The pencil’s slanted tip works great for quickly filling in brows.
- The powder is handy for further blending.
- Comes in flattering shades for blondes and brunettes.
- Fragrance free.

Strengths: Inexpensive and widely available; a hugely improved selection of foundations, several with reliable sunscreen; good concealers; enviable pressed powders; some fantastic Lash Blast mascaras; mostly great eyelining options; a vast selection of lip color options, from the long-wearing Outlast to sheer lip glosses to the wholly impressive Lip Perfection lipstick;several great options in the Queen Collection.
Weaknesses: The older foundations are seriously lacking; the newer Advanced Radiance foundation has great texture but disappointing SPF rating; powder blush and eyeshadows; terrible makeup brushes; all of the "Clean" products contain irritating ingredients.
Since 1961, CoverGirl has been slowly building a portfolio of cosmetics that today is about as all-encompassing as a makeup line can be. Originating from the same "medicated" ingredients found in Noxzema Skin Cream (which was never medicated in the least, but seriously irritating for skin), the debut products are still available, albeit with slight modifications. The good news is that for the past several years CoverGirl has consistently updated their line with some very impressive products, especially their foundations, concealers, and vastly improved pressed powders. They also offer some excellent eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and lip gloss, and one of the all-time best long-wearing lip paints, Outlast.
What's puzzling is that although many of CoverGirl's latest products are progressive, they tend to hang on to the lackluster-to-poor options, including abysmal powder blush and eyeshadows and their long-standing, very irritating Clean Makeup.
CoverGirl's Web site is extremely easy to navigate, and presents a wealth of product information, along with practical (if somewhat cutesy) tips and tricks for successful makeup application and for finding the shades that work best for you. CoverGirl's consumer relations department is consistently helpful if you have any questions or concerns. For example, if one of your favorite items was discontinued, you might want to know what replaced it, and they will let you know. Such service and customer concern is yet another powerful reason to believe CoverGirl really has its (class) act together.
