Asking someone to give you a list of best makeup pencils is like asking someone to find a needle in a haystack. However, as someone whose collection is almost completely comprised of them, I don’t see it as such a daunting task. As my habits have downsized and become more minimalist in nature, I depend on the finely-pointed stuff to put on a face and head out the door without having the sacrifice the time I’ve set aside for hitting the snooze button.

The best part of investing in makeup pencils is knowing that these days, the amount of multitasking options (thanks to brands like NudeStix and TreStique) is only growing by the month. And outside of that are the award-winning products that actually don’t disappoint whenever you get around to finally trying them. For me, that was definitely the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pencil; nothing blends with my microbladed brows better. With that being said, here’s my rundown of the best-ever makeup pencils (and pencil-like products) worth trying, whether you want to mix them with the actual pencils in your backpack or simply level-up your skills.
