Fleek. Yeah, I have no idea what that means. Pretty sure no one else does either. Moving on.
Eyebrows are in. Almost every makeup line has launched various brow products in multiple forms – pencils, pomades, gels, powders, and wax to name a few. It can get a bit overwhelming.
The queen of brows is Anastasia Beverly Hills. She has a salon in Beverly Hills (and other locations) and an entire line dedicated to perfect brows. One of my favorite products of all time is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. It’s a micro pencil that helps you fill in your brows without making them look like you’ve used sharpie. It’s kinda magical. Dramatic. I know. There’s a reason this is a fan favorite. Trust me. But at $21, it ain’t cheap.
I’ve been on the hunt for a “dupe” or a comparable product, at a lower price point. I think I’ve found it. Almost. Oh hello, NYX Micro Brow Pencil.
I’ve never been a fan of blatant knockoffs. I mean, really? But at half the price, I can’t really complain. The NYX pencil is a little easier on the wallet at $9.99. Annd, it’s essentially the same thing. The only major difference is that it’s not as creamy as the Brow Wiz. I have the color Taupe in both brands and they’re ALMOST identical. Both have the pencil/color on one end, and the spooley brush on the other to brush your brows. I wouldn’t say they’re twins, but they’re sisters. If $ wasn’t an issue, my pick would be Anastasia, only because it’s a bit easier to work with. That being said, they’re very similar and I would definitely give the NYX pencil a try if you’re looking for an easy brow product, minus the hefty price tag.
Happy Tuesday! XO
