Having plucked my eyebrows into oblivion as a teenager I've tried a fair few eyebrow pencils over the years. They're a quicker option than brow powders & a lot more portable making them better for touch ups. Pencils can look a lot harsher than powders though so it's important to fill in your brows with light feathery strokes rather than like you're colouring something in with a Sharpie. One of the reasons why I like Brow Wiz so much is because the results are very natural looking. The nib is incredibly fine allowing you to draw on tiny individual hairs. It makes it so easy to achieve the exact shape you want without any harsh lines. The colour intensity is buildable so you can create a more dramatic eyebrow if you so wish. The formula of the pencil is so smooth & extremely long lasting. This stuff will not smudge or fade whatsoever. Plus the tip is retractable which saves product & means you never have to sharpen it. On the other end there's a great little spoolie to brush through your eyebrows with. It helps to neaten up the hairs before filling them in & then blends the pencil perfectly through your brows. Just finish it all off with some clear brow gel for some immaculate looking eyebrows that will last all day long.
One part of filling in your eyebrows that is often overlooked is colour choice. It's so important to get it right or you can end up looking really weird, as I've had to learn the hard way! A lot of drugstore brow pencils have a lot of red in them or are just way too dark. Anastasia Brow Wiz comes in six different colours & shade selection is a breeze because they offer suggestions for every hair colour. Obviously my hair is bleached blonde but I keep my eyebrows au natural colour-wise. Bleached brows are never a good look! I prefer to stick to light ashy brown shades & then I can build them up to match the natural colour. Medium Ash is suggested for anyone with light to medium brown or silver hair. It's absolutely perfect for me. The only downside to this pencil is that you get less than 1g of product. You only need to wind up the nib a tiny bit though so it should last quite a while. Honestly this eyebrow pencil is worth every penny & it's easy to see why it's such a cult product. If you're in need of better brows, then Anastasia is definitely the way to go.
