NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe

Since the first time I've tried the Anastasia Brow Wiz I've been a loyal fan of their brow products, but after hearing many people compare this pencil with Anastasia's I've also wanted to give it a try. I like to keep my brows pretty natural looking and mainly add more definition to them since they're pretty light and don't look like much of a frame to my face if I don't do something with them.

The NYX Micro Brow Pencil comes in slim packaging and has the pencil on one side and a spoolie on the other. There is 0,09 g of product inside and the product is made in South Korea, just like the Anastasia Brow Wiz. I have the shade Taupe which matches me perfectly, without being too warm or too cool. 

The formula is waxy and not quite as creamy as I remember the Anastasia Brow Wiz being. My preferred brow product has been their Brow Definer, because it has a larger pencil surface and works better for my brows. Still, I also like the thin tip of this pencil, which would be a better choice for anyone looking for a very precise brow application and adding single hair-like strokes. The pigmentation is again comparable to Anastasia's Brow Wiz or Brow Definer and transfers onto the skin or brows without adding too much pressure. The spoolie is soft and well made, and the pencil side really holds up and stays on my brows for the entire day without disappearing or smudging (but I didn't have a chance to try it in the humid summery weather so I can't say if it works just as well in those conditions).

I think this is a great more affordable version of the Anastasia Brow Wiz. NYX only offers a couple shades, so if you have a hard time finding your match at the drugstore you might still have to look for a more expensive option. Since trying and repeatedly using Anastasia's Brow Definer I've grown to absolutely love the shape of that applicator, but I still don't have a hard time switching between the two. I know that when I first started using brow pencils with thinner tips I had some trouble not 'overdoing' my brows, but I guess they have a bit of a learning curve. When I use a pencil with a thinner tip I also spend a bit more time doing my brows, which is another reason why I like the definer so much.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe is available here online.
Do you have a favourite brow product or like trying out different ones?

  1. Me je vedno zanimalo kakšen je ta od NYX ravno zaradi primerjave z Anstasio. Imam občutek, da bi mi mogoče bil bolj všeč, ker praviš da je bolj trd. To vedno povezujem z boljšo obstojnostjo. Mi je pa cena teh brow izdelkov s tako malo izdelka v embalaži vedno predraga. Sploh, ker sama obrvi vsak dan dorisujem :D

    Moj najljubši je trenutno od Catric Slim'matic Ultra Precise Brow Pencil, ki je verjetno najcenejša verzija z natančno konico, pa še ta se mi tako hitro porabi, da je groza :).

    1. Sama sem bolj skeptična do nekaterih izdelkov, ki jih vsi označujejo kot 'dupe', tale se mi pa res zdi primerljiv z Anastasio. :) Meni je Brow Definer od nakupa trajal dobro leto, pa sem ga uporabljala skoraj vsak dan, tako da preživim visoko ceno.
      Bom preverila Catrice Brow Pencil, ko bom v Mullerju naslednjič :)
