Pros: good quality pencil, perfect shade match
Cons: slightly expensive

Do you define your brows?  If not, you really should.  It's changed my life, and after discovering The Body Shop's Brown Definer pencil in Dark Brown, my life was made even better.

I've already got dark eyebrows, and people have always complimented me on the shape (I shape and maintain them all by myself, thank you very much!), but after I started defining my brows it's like they turned into their own little entity that other women seem a bit in awe of.

Defining your eyebrows (which basically entails going over your natural brows with a pencil in a matching shade to fill in any thinner spots and possibly penciling in a little extra to make them slightly longer or thicker) really makes them pop, and while many women say they feel "naked" going out without earrings or lipstick or mascara, I feel that way if I forget to do my brows.  There's nothing better than well-defined eyebrows, but nothing worse than using the wrong shade of pencil.  It just looks silly and slightly comical, which is why I always buy several Body Shop Brow Definers at once, and will continue to stockpile them until the earth stops turning.

The pencil itself is great. Great quality colour that doesn't break or smudge easily or go on too light or too heavy, but it's the shade itself that I keep coming back for.  I have dark, dark brown eyebrows, more black than brown, but more brown than black, at least in terms of pencils.  I've tried so many shades of "dark brown" that were too light or too reddish and just did not blend with my natural shade, but when I tried black it was just way too dark garish-looking for my hair and skin tone, so it amazed me to find a shade that is, essentially, a perfect match!  It's dark brown, but without the golden or reddish undertones.  It's been the best match in colour I've ever found, so I will never balk at the price, even though it's a little on the expensive side.  It does last me quite a while, and I use it every single day.
