Brow Wiz from Anastasia Beverly Hills is a product that has a well-deserved cult following in the beauty world. Over the years, the brand has continually come out with new ways for brow lovers to replicate the styles provided by professionals at their counters, and Brow Wiz allows you to do this with little effort. Its ability to draw defined, yet natural-looking brows, and availability in a vast array of realistic shades, easily earns it our highest praise.
Brow Wiz is an ultra-fine-point brow pencil outfitted with a dense spoolie brush to aid with grooming rowdy hairs. The texture of the pencil itself is on the stiff-side, which is a plus because it allows for precise application to fill in sparse brows and gives the formula its stay-put finish. The icing on the cake? This pencil is both fragrance-free and doesn't require manual sharpening—meaning that less product is wasted. Kudos!
There are nine shades available with something to love for just about everyone. There are several standard shades for blondes and brunettes but where Anastasia truly impresses is including shades for those with black, gray, and auburn hair. Most retailers typically have testers available so we highly suggest trying them in store to find which is the appropriate for you.
Note: It's worth mentioning that in even with our glowing accolades, there are less expensive alternatives available that can give you the same results for half the cost. We're looking at you, L'Oreal Brow Definer Stylist. We won't ding Brow Wiz for this because hefty price-tag aside, we still wholeheartedly stand behind it but if you're searching for a drugstore dupe, L'Oreal's is as good as it gets.
Overall, Anastasia Beverly Hills resoundingly earned our top honors with Brow Wiz for making a brow pencil with an ultra-fine-point tip that allows for easy application and a long-lasting result. The fact that it's fragrance-free, self-sharpening, and available in such a wide array of natural-looking shades only adds to our enthusiasm!
