NYX Micro Brow Pencil Review | Anastasia Brow Wiz Dupe?

Hey everyone!  One of the most important things I've learned throughout learning and experimenting with my makeup is that your eyebrows are so important to your final look.  I love finding new brow products, but I also know that the best brow products can be really pricey.  If you're like me, then you LOVE and LIVE for the Anastasia Brow Wiz, but the price of it gives you a bit of anxiety.   A couple months ago I started hearing a lot about the NYX Micro Brow pencil.  I picked it up and I've been using this for a good month or so to give you all a review on it.  To see my thoughts on it, just keep reading!

NYX Micro Brow Pencil
$9.99 regular price
On sale for $5.99 at Ulta now!




When I first saw the packaging, I immediately thought of the Anastasia Brow Wiz.  It's extremely thin and retractable, which makes for very precise application.  It has a spooly brush on the other end to blend the product in.  That was a big plus for me because I always forget to pack one with me whenever I travel.  It applies really easy, but it still has enough of a waxy formula to last all day long.  It's also easy to blend in with the spooly, which is really important to me because it makes the brows look really natural.

I think this product is very comparable to the Anastasia Brow Wiz and could be considered a dupe for it.  I picked up the color "Espresso."  In the Brow Wiz I use "Dark Brown."  The colors are very similar, but the NYX one has more warmth to it.  As far as consistency, the Brow Wiz is more waxy.  I prefer a waxier formula because it lasts longer and think it can look more natural depending on how you apply it.

I really love this product!  It is by far the best drugstore brow pencil I have ever tried.  If you're looking for an affordable brow pencil, I highly recommend this one.  Or if you love the Anastasia Brow Wiz, but you want something less expensive to wear on an everyday basis, this is the one for you.

Have you tried the NYX Micro Brow Pencil?  What other brow products do you recommend?  Thanks for reading!
