The Anastasia Brow Pencil has been all the rage the past few years. It has for a good reason to. It's a really great eyebrow pencil. I had the HARDEST time filling in my brows until I purchased one of those. I have naturally really dark and full eyebrows and when I would try to fill them in before with other products it was a HOT mess. Recently NYX Cosmetics came out with their version of the Brow wiz. I picked it up because I wanted to see if it compared to the Brow wiz. Here are my thoughts.
Anastasia Brow Wiz- $21.00
Available at Sephora and Ulta
Available at Ulta and Online. I haven't seen it at other places that sell NYX like Target.
Anastasia Brow Wiz- The pencil is super tiny. When applied you get hair like strokes making your brows appear more natural. I wear soft brown. There is a color that will work for anyone. One end has a spoily which is a really good one. I just fill the sparse areas of my brow with small strokes and then comb through them with the brush.
NYX- This pencil part on this one is the same exact same sizes as the Brow Wiz. The only difference I feel is the pencil its self is a little harder. These come in a great color range as well. I picked up Taupe. The colors aren't exactly the same, but will work. This too comes with a spoily on the end as well.
They both wear the exact same. In my opinion. Last all day. I have had no problems with them wearing off throughout the day or melting off my face in the heat.
Save or Spend
My overall thoughts on these two. I absolutely love the Anastasia Brow Wiz its a holy grail of mine. I love everything about it. EXCEPT the price. There is only ONE thing I do not love about the NYX Brow Pencil and that is I do not like the spoily. I love the pencil itself and honestly it's seriously is just the same as the Anastasia one. Like I said before the pencil itself is a little hard, but if you just put a little more pressure when you apply it they apply just the same.
I would SAVE your money and buy the NYX Brow Pencil. It really is a dupe and is just as good. No need to spend the extra money.
I hope these reviews help you.
