The best beard pencil filler kits
As usual, I scoured the web to find the best products in terms of value for money and number of reviews

We are therefore looking for a product :
- Skin friendly (does not cause allergies or irritations)
- In shades as close as possible to your hair color
- Waterproof and sweatproof
- With an excellent quality-price ratio

What is a beard touch-up pencil?
The filler pen distributes a product of the color of your hair in your beard thanks to a micro-tip and a brush specially designed to make a natural look. Often compared to mascara for women, it is used to correct imperfections (holes, white spots, scars...).
The pencil beard can be used on the beard as well as on on hair, eyebrows and even the mustache. Its use is purely aesthetic and will fill the holes at bearded people with little or no beard. It is a bit like a beard filter on social networks but in real life.
It's up to you to draw your beard the way you want!
Good to know: Whatever your beard type (smooth, frizzy, shaggy, thick...) this tool will work wonders!

PenBeard is designed to adhere to the skin of the man like a natural "glue". Very easy to use and especially quick to apply, it has various uses:

How long does the pencil last on the beard?
The product applied by the beard pen is very durable. In addition, it is waterproof: it resists water, perspiration and other factors that can make it run or shine.
On the other hand, do not dive into the pool: I am not sure it will hold

Frequently asked questions
Where to buy a beard pencil?
You can get your beard pen online, on marketplaces like Amazon or on websites specialized in makeup. Otherwise, go to stores like Sephora or Nocibé which sometimes offer them.
Does the beard pencil stick?
Designed to stick to your skin, the product used is indeed greasy and waterproof, which is particularly useful. The pen will therefore stick to your skin (and hair) to give a natural, non-fading look.
My beard pencil cracked, what can I do?
If the tip is cracked, the pen is almost unusable since the lines will not be natural anymore. Try it out on your beard and comb through for the "natural" effect. If you notice that it is not the same as usual, buy a new one.
