Anastasia eyebrow pencil reviews

I haven't been this excited about a product range since we launched the Real Techniques brushes last year.
Before I go into detail for each product, I just want to point out, even though all these products are designed for eyebrows, the effects they provide are quite different from one another. Eyebrow powders help achieve the softest and most diffused look compared to a pencil or a pomade. As seen in the swatch picture above, eyebrow powders give a very soft and diffused look, which can make it quite hard to draw prominent lines or mimick brow hairs.
With the added bonus of color-stay formulas, eyebrow pencils are probably the most popular brow product.
I personally like the Anastasia Beverly Hills range of brow pencils, particularly due to the easy-application formula, the fine pencil tip and the cool-tone shades they have available. The craze that followed the release of eyebrow pomades, especially with Anastasia Beverly Hills leading the way with their Dip Brow Pomade HERE; sent the cash registers into meltdown. The curiosity of the hype surrounding the Anastasia pomades got the better of me too but when I realised there was such a long wait list, I looked around for alternatives. I pondered whether I should include this product within this post because its purpose is quite different than the other 3 products. As seen in my swatch pictures above, a tinted brow gel is not designed to shape or draw on brows. In addition to the formula, what I look for in the perfect eyebrow product is the color…which can make or break your look. As for eyebrow brushes, angle brushes are great in controlling where the product goes and thinner the tip of the brush is, the more precise lines you can draw.
Clear Brow Gel A clear gel fortified with botanical hair conditioners and essential oils to keep unruly brows in place all day without flaking.


In addition to the previous Eyebrow Series we did (which you can check out via the Beauty tab), today’s post is all about Eyebrow Products. Again, it’s up to your personal needs as to whether you just need one, or a combination of a few. This is why I did the swatches in the picture below (without the interference of brow hairs), to show you the way each different formula applies and why one might work better for you than the other. Although these powders are specifically marketed for eyebrows, matte eyeshadows do exactly the same job. Sephora was sold out to such an extent, they had pages and pages of names on waiting lists for when it would come back in stock.
But, seeing as this may be all some of you may need in a brow product, I decided to feature it. I have tried MUFE’s Aqua Brow and then I found a NYX dupe for $6 which was just as amazing.
Sometimes it’s a trial and error with makeup but the smallest changes can make a world of difference.
I use maybelline Define A Brow and I also find it a bit dry like its harder to build the color.
Define A Brow definitely needs more time (and patience) to work with but it’s still the closest drugstore alternative to the brow wiz.
I personally am a huge fan of the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil, but am DYING to try a pomade! I have just emptied all my bedroom drawers out looking for those stencils (which were lurking there forever!!!). Now, I know the makeup world has gone eyebrow crazy lately and there are so many different products out there, which can be really confusing.


Being a waterproof formula and really not that much different than the Anastasia counterpart, I ended up buying this little pot of genius. They usually come with a mascara wand applicator so it’s easy to brush and coat over the brow hairs. They can get wiped off or melt into the skin and fade away much easier than other brow formulas. Pencils which can combine most or all of the qualities I mentioned will make your eyebrow routine an absolute breeze. Lets say you have perfectly shaped brows, but the color is either too dark or too fair and you either want to tone them down a notch or enhance them so they look more defined and apparent. Also, if your brows are mid to dark brown or black, choosing a brow product that is one shade lighter than your own eyebrow hairs, tends to give the most natural look. You can get brow powders from all cosmetics brands including drugstore and also purchase matte eyeshadow if it suits your brow color. I know BeneFit cosmetics have their version of tinted brow gels which you can check HERE but I’m not too certain about drugstore brands. Regardless, I have both brands, and considering the price difference, Maybelline is a great drugstore alternative to Brow Wiz. The formula itself glides on easily and it’s pigmented enough to draw anything from the sharpest line to the most blended. I loved Sephora own brand brow trio, but they have discontinued it (at least in Poland) and I haven't found any good substitute for suiting my ash blonde tones.
