Finding the perfect brow product is a bit like finding the perfect bag. You go through endless options, leave your bank account feeling a little worse for wear, and even then you’re never quite satisfied.
Well, I feel like I can say with 99% certainty that I have found my HG (Holy Grail) brow product. I’m not going to say I’ll never try another brow product ever again (let’s be real, I’m a beauty
addict blogger), but I can say this particular product will always exist in my makeup collection.
That is the Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil. I know this is such a coveted item in the beauty community, but I thought I would join the party and throw in my two cents.
To give you a basic run down, this ultra-thin pencil has two usable ends. One contains the retractable brow product that needs no sharpening, simply twist and more of the product is pushed through. The other end is a spool, which is typically used after the product is applied to help brush and even out the application.
What I love about this product so much is firstly the pigmentation, it matches my brows perfectly, which is no easy feat. Most brow products only cater towards those with blonde to dark brown hair. None of my hair is brown at all, in fact my brows are a black ashy tone, applying anything with a brown undertone looks strange on them. Fortunately for me, Granite is the perfect match! Even better, there are nine colours to choose from!
The other thing is how thin this pencil is, I use it very lightly on any sparse areas of my brows and it gives a beautiful natural finish. Go at it for a little longer, and I have dramatic brows that are perfect for a strong bold look.
It’s incredibly easy to use, and the retractable pencil means no need to tote around a sharpener when I travel which is a big plus!
Unfortunately I don’t believe Anastasia products are available in Australia (let me know if I’m wrong!), I picked mine up whilst trekking through the USA and I even purchased a second as a backup as I have heard that constant use of this pencil will only last you 1.5 months (fortunately I only do my brows on the weekends or going out, so I’m sure mine will last a lot longer).
I can’t recommend this product enough, if you can get your hands on it, go get one now! You won’t regret it 🙂
If you are based in the USA, lucky you! You can pick one up online for $21USD.
