Brow Pen is easy to use and does an excellent job of filling in brows for a natural, full look. The convenient pen-style applicator has soft, dense hairs that come to a fine point, allowing for precision and control. There are two shades available—Universal Light (ideal for blonde to medium brown hair) and Universal Deep (ideal for dark brown hair)—both of which stay put throughout the day without smudging, flaking, or caking. This is an excellent alternative to brow powders and pencils!

The Anastasia Beverly Hills product line was developed by "definitive eyebrow expert" Anastasia Soare, a woman who owns a chic Beverly Hills salon. Her namesake product line is built around specialty brow products and shaping tools based on her criteria. Although she has expanded the line to include skin-care and other makeup items, the brow products remain the heart of the line; the skin care seems to be little more than an afterthought.

What sets the Anastasia line apart is the wide selection of brow-grooming products and their impressive shade range for natural-looking brows. Overall, the line is a mixture of both good and bad products, at a relatively high price point. We were expecting to find great brow pencils from a line devoted to perfecting the eyebrow, but Anastasia failed miserably with their extremely hard-textured Perfect Brow Pencil.

Their skin-care products also rank low in terms of efficacy and high in terms of misleading claims, and the mascara misses the mark completely. There are a few so-so makeup products you can ignore, and some of the brow kits have a frustrating mix of good products and awful products.

On the flip side, what's great about Anastasia Beverly Hills are their fabulous brow powders, good brushes, brow-taming products, and some helpful products such as Brow Fix, Brow Pen, and Tinted Brow Gel. They also have a beautiful Blush Quad and a couple of good highlighter pencils. Many of the products cater to those who are new to brow shaping (including a brow stencil set), and, depending on your local department store, you may even be able to schedule an appointment with an Anastasia brow specialist who can show you the way, following the namesake company founder's famous Golden Ratio. For more information about Anastasia Beverly Hills, call (800) 310-3773 or visit

    A Pass
    • This is a great pen style, and I loved getting super precise with the brush tip! Sadly, the only brunette shade, 'Universal Deep', being a lovely deep brown with lots of red, did not match my plain dark brown hair at all, and my brows glowed unnaturally in the sun until I bought something else. This was my bad, I should've tested first, but the name gave me false confidence. Plus, the pen runs out of product really fast.

    Didn't last long
    • I loved the product, was easy to use and looked very natural. But I only had 3 applications and the pen was used up. There should be a way to turn the top and get more liquid from the refill it. For $22+ it was not worth it at all. Until they find a way to put more of the colored brow liquid into the pen...Don't buy it! I was so ripped off, I returned it for all my money back.
