Anastasia Brow Wiz - Eyebrow Routine

Finally a brow pencil that I consider HG.  I was sad to see the Maybelline's Define-A-Brow have parabens and was hoping it would be a more affordable option.  I'll stick with what I have researched and picked up Anastasia's Brow Wiz in Brunette/Dark Brown from Nordstrom.

What the website says:

I really like Sephora's take on how they break down a product and here is what they have for Brow Wiz:

What it is:
An ultraslim mechanical pencil to shape, define, and fill in your brows for a natural, polished look. 

What it does:
Sometimes brows need a little magic. This must-have pencil features an ultrafine, retractable tip to fill in gaps easily and mimic brow hair. Perfect for spot checking areas that may be sparse or over-tweezed, the smear-proof formula wears all day for a natural, fresh look. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 

Think Dirty rating:

How they're done!
Start by drawing a line below the brow
Then doing the same up top
Fill in until you have the right coloring and shading
Use the spoolie end to brush the hairs upward and lighten any areas that are too dark
Both brows done.  Hmmm, the right always turns out better.  LOL! Also, brows should be sisters, not twins. ;)

Cost: $21

-Fine pencil applies naturally
-No parabens, sulfates or pthalates
-Variety of colors


Would I recommend this to a friend?  YES!  Much safer without parabens, sulfates or pthalates.  There is a variety of colors to match your hair and applies well.  You can make this product last longer if you define and shape lightly, then follow up with a brow powder or eye shadow to fill in.  I'll still be on the lookout for a more affordable, safe eyebrow pencil, but for now, this is HG for me and I already have a back up!
