The Battle of the BROW PENCILS

Review

Hii my beauties 💋 💋 !!

Today is all about brow pencils! We all know and love brow pencils, because they are quite easy to use. But there are so many on the market that it gets hard to choose. On today’s post I will make it a bit easier for you guys. I will compare few of them and will let you know which one is my ultimate favorite one.

WHAT ARE BROW PENCILS?

Brow pencil is a product that is applied to the eyebrow (of course), to shape and fill them, it comes in a pencil form (retractable or not).

HOW SHOULD THE PERFECT BROW PENCIL BE?

For me, the perfect brow pencil is pigmented but not too pigmented, and the formula should be a bit dry, so the product doesn’t move around.

For every day I do prefer brow pencil over pomade, because it’s a quick and easy way to fill in those sparse areas in the brow.

FORMULAS I’VE TRIED

I have tried quite a few brow pencils, and I do prefer some over others. But before I reveal which ones I do really like let me compare the performance of the ones I’ve tried.

1 When I say it’s perfectly pigmented I mean that it’s not too sheer nor too pigmented, the product makes applies in a way that it blends perfectly with the brow hairs.

So … drum roll please … my favorite one, from all these, for high end, is the Anastacia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, Anastacia truly is the brow queen, this brow pencil has the best perfect formula (but don’t like the spoolie that it comes with) and for drugstore I like the NYX Micro Brow Pencil (again, I don’t like the spoolie on this one).

My favorite spoolie is actually the one on the ColourPop Precision Brow Pencil, it’s the perfect size, thickness and the bristles are soft.

I hope this comparison review was helpful to you guys. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comment section below.
