I’ve always had a stock pile of brow pencil refills in my makeup bag ever since high school because that is the one part of my face I’m most insecure about. I’ve always loved my Estee Lauder Automatic Brow Pencil Duo and have been using it exclusively till last year when my mom got me the Shu Uemura Hard Formula pencil. I like them both and they do the job just fine, but sometimes I find them lack the pigmentation and longevity, and with the thicker tips best way to apply is to fill it in as a shape instead of creating individual strands.
Recently after putting in the last of my refills for my I decided it’s time to expand my brow pencil horizon and try something new. I’ve always heard good things about the Anastasia Brow Wiz and have been considering getting one for a while, since Sephora was having their Holiday Shopping Event last week I decided to finally give it a try. At first I was a little skeptical about how thin the pencil is, as I’m used to the thicker ones for better grip and easy fill, but once I used it, everything’s changed.
First of all the pigmentation of the pencil is great! The creamy texture makes it easy to apply and the thin tip that I was skeptical about at first actually works in my favor, it’s so easy to create strokes that gives the illusion of individual brow hairs. The result is more natural compare to my other brow pencils, tho it does take more patient to apply as it’s harder to just fill the brows with the tiny tip.
Most of times I like to try new things, but there are a select few items that, when I find the one I like and works well for me, I stick with it. Brow pencil is definitely one of them, and I just found my new go to!
