For the longest time I have been dying to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz, as I fell head over heels in love with the Brow Pomade from the same brand (see my review here). Last month Conor went on a boys trip to Vegas which had me seething with jealousy, but he did make a little trip to Sephora for some souvenirs to cheer me up, which helped. If you don’t already know, Conor and I lived in Vegas together for a year, which you can read about here, which is why I was particularly jealous of this trip. It was our little home, and he went without me!!!! To be fair he was going with his brothers but still, I am allowed to be a little upset. ANYWAY the top of my Sephora wish list was this Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) as I have very light and thin eyebrows and I am always looking for new products to make filling them in easier.
We will start off with a before, as I am about to show you my face eyebrow free, and it is hilarious! This is me heading off to Electric Picnic and I have filled in my brows using the brow wiz.
The product itself is quite a handy design, one end has the eyebrow crayon colour and the other end has a nice spooly brush, as even the finest brows should be brushed before being filled. The nib of the crayon can be extended and retracted with a little twist, and both ends have sturdy lids to protect them.
Ok so here I am with my natural brow, which is very thin (thanks 13-year-old me who discovered tweezers). Filling in my eyebrows can take 3 to 20 minutes depending on the products I am using and the shape I am trying to achieve. With the brow wiz I usually stay around the 3 minute mark as it is so easy to use.
I usually brush my brows up using spooly so that I can draw a faint line along the bottom of my eyebrows, an outline which I will then fill in. I use a lot of tiny hair like strokes to fill in the shape for a great day look. The colour I use is soft brown and it is a perfect match for my skin tone and hair colour.
I didn’t achieve a great shape on this day, but when building brows from scratch it can be pretty hit and miss.
I have demonstrated some thin stroked on my hand here, so you can see how natural it looks. It is not a cakey crayon, and I think it would actually be pretty difficult to get that overly done, bad brow look using this product.
- Love the colour (soft brown)
- Very easy to use
- Gives a more natural / daytime look compared to the brow pomade
- Great for a quick job
- I am a huge fan! It is a beauty bag essential!
Conor also brought me back my favourite mascara from YSL, which you can read about here, and the naked skin concealer which I hope to review shortly.
