Eyebrows frame our faces, so having nicely groomed and natural-looking eyebrows can truly transform an entire makeup look. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil has been a cult favorite in the makeup world, and I can understand why.
Yes, $21 for just 0.003oz of product can be a hefty price to pay, but I personally haven't found a brow pencil with as good of a color match for my asian black hair and works better than this Anastasia brow wiz (Sephora's brow pencil comes close and is only $13).
I love that this one pencil is the only product/tool I need to complete my everyday brow! This dual ended pencil has a fine tip on one end and a dense spooly brush on the other, allowing me to easily define my brow, fill in sparse/bald areas, extend the end of my brow, and groom stray hairs. If I want a more bold and defined brow, I will use the brow wiz in combination with the dipbrow pomade in "medium brown" (see my dipbrow pomade review here).
Depending on the occasion, I'll use brow powder when going for a softer look, gel/wax for a more defined brow, or a combination of brow products +/- concealer to clean up edges; but because those require additional tools (separate brush), my go-to for my brows is simply a dual-ended brow pencil.
- Not entirely "smear-proof" as labeling claims. The color tends to fade if touched too frequently.
- Fragile; because the tip is so slim/fine, it can be easily broken if you're not careful.
Before and after the brow wiz application:
Please excuse my stray brow hairs; I'm currently in the process of growing out my brows!
Overall, this brow pencil is one of my favorites because it's precise, gives such a natural finish, and is so easy to use; in my opinion, it is very hard to 'mess up' on your brows using this brow wiz pencil. I am planning to try some Asian brands (ie Lioele) in hopes to find a gray color brow pencil that will look natural with my black hair.

"granite" is the perfect color match for my black hair
I wound up the pencil all the way when I bought it to see how much product we really get.
You can definitely go through one pencil in just a few weeks if you use it on a daily basis.
Since the pencil is ultra fine, I only wind up a bit of product at a time.
This ensures the tip will not break.
I seriously love this spooly brush. It's a must to brush out any harsh lines.
