The Ultimate Eyebrow Pencil & Why You Need It!


Considering how much time I spend ranting about my eyebrows (or lack thereof) I haven't really found something that wows me, until now that is...

I finally took the plunge and invested in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (£15.50) after the longest time of wanting one. Why did it take me so long? I honestly thought my eyebrows were a lost cause and that nothing I could use would make a difference or make me happy about doing my eyebrows BUT and this is a very big but, since I ordered this pencil I have loved doing my makeup again!

My eyebrows were such a chore and I am not talking about a little bit of definition needed or a slight fill in at the front, I have a whole lot of work to do on these babies every morning and as embarrassing as this before photo is to share I really wanted to show you what a difference this pencil makes to me and how easy it makes it. 

Most of my time before ordering was spent umming and ahhing over the shade as I wanted something that would look natural but would also cover up the patches that had no hair. I finally decided on the shade Taupe/Ash Blonde and I think it is a great match for my skin tone and hair which was definitely a sigh of relief when the product was delivered. 

Let's take a look shall we? 



Before photo - As you can see, I was definitely not blessed with a full brow but after years of struggling with them I finally decided to be patient and let them try and grow back as much as they could. It has been about 8 months now and this is how far I have gotten with them. They are still awfully patchy and sparse but what can I do? 

After photo - Da-da! What do you think? Obviously they look pretty strong compared to the before photo but I promise in real life they look normal. The amount of compliments I have had since using this pencil has been overwhelming as I RARELY get compliments on my brows. Hopefully you can see the difference that I see everyday! 

The formula itself is spot on and is neither too soft or too hard. It glides on easily and allow for a foolproof application making it really simple to mimic tiny hairs on any patchy areas. The spoolie on the end makes it a breeze to brush through the brows and shape them just right and is definitely the best I have ever had attached to a pencil. 

If a pencil that takes you from eyebrow NO to eyebrow PRO isn't on your 'to buy' list then hear me scream because this really is the ULTIMATE eyebrow pencil. So much so that I have a backup on the way already because I do not think I could go a day without this! 

I am obsessed, addicted and smitten with this pencil and if the before and after photos haven't wowed you then let's talk about the lasting power - It. does. not. budge!! I have showered, gymed, run, swim, scratched and swiped my brows and they have still been on my face intact. I even went above and beyond, in the name of research obviously and even SLEPT with it on (after taking all my other makeup off of course) and was blown away when I woke up to find them still there. I can't fault the product at all and recommend it whether you have full beautiful brows that you want to define or if you have problem eyebrows like myself - you really can't go wrong with Anastasia. 

What do you think? Have you tried the Brow Wiz? What do you use for your brows?

    1. Bad staying power on my brows is a no no! With how sparse my brows are I need something that will stay on the skin as well as the brow and not just wear off and this does it all! I don't have to worry about swiping my brow or patting my face at the gym or swimming anymore. It's amazing! X

  2. I can't believe i'm yet to try this! It looks incredible and the difference in your brows is crazy. You may have finally sold it to me so thank you (or if my bank balance is the one writing this comment then I hate you haha). Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    1. It does look a lot more softer on me in person but I look like I have a full defined brow which is just amazing compared to what it looks like normally. You will LOVE IT! I am so glad you liked the review. I urge everyone to try this atleast once! I love it so much I even bought a back up so I won't have to be without it haha! x

  3. The difference this makes to your brows is incredible but in such natural way. I love the sound of this, definitely will look into it even though I have the DipBrow, as this just seems like it would take less time to apply and also it's travel friendly x

    1. Thank you so much Alina! I love the effect but camera makes it look quite bold whereas in 'real life' it fits in with my face and makeup perfectly. I just bought the DipBrow and yet to use it but I am inlove with this! x

  4. I bought it thinking that the hype was just fake, but I believe it now!!! The hype is real and it's now my favorite brow pencil ever. So easy to use and looks amazing without the hassle Dipbrow has. I just wish that there was more product because it's pretty expensive to use all the time.
