On any given day, I prefer to use my Dipbrow pomade, but when I want to create a softer brow look and move quickly, I reach for my Brow Wiz pencil in Ebony.
First off, it's becoming rather common knowledge that Anastasia is the reigning champion of brow products these days. The performance of every single product I've used from this brand has been superior to all others, bar none.
What makes this pencil better than the Perfect Brow pencil (which I also own and enjoy) is that the retractable tip is extremely thin, so it's convenient and no product gets wasted. Otherwise, the formula is similar, if not identical. The ultra-thin point and slip, perfect spoolie brush on the other end make defining brows a cinch!
I get a solid full day's wear out of this pencil, needing extra virgin olive oil (my makeup remover of choice) and several passes of a cotton ball to remove. Even in the humid New England summer, this stuff lasts and lasts.
The color is perfect. I prefer my brows to be black-brown rather than true black or a warmer brown, and this delivers. It doesn't pull red or blue on camera, and it's a great match for my naturally dark (yet thinning from age) brows.
It's pricey, but considering how well it performs and how long it seems to last, I think it's entirely worth it, especially considering how woefully short most other brands fall in terms of color selection for brow products.

I have always had insecurities of my eyebrows and have tried quite a bit of products to accommodate that. This is the solution for me. I tried the Anastasia tinted brow gel and loved that and wanted to see what this pencil was about and I have to tell you how glad I am that I did. It is so easy to use and gives the best results I've seen. I have fair skin and dark hair so it is hard to find something that works well for me but this exceeds my expectations. I am a cheepo when it comes to spending so buying a $21 eye pencil says how good it is.

I've been wanting to try this for a long time & my cousin got it for me as a gift from Ulta, however it was the wrong color so I tried to exchange it but they wouldn't let me since I didn't have the receipt so I complained via twitter & ended up getting a gift card so I got it in the color chocolate and I love it but I'm wondering how brunette (dark brown) will look, which I may try when this one runs out. It is a bit pricey which I don't really like but other than that I can say I'm definitely pleased!!

- Blonde/taupe eyebrow pencils can be difficult to find, but the Brow Wiz in Blonde is light enough for very blonde hair
- Finely tipped to create a natural look
- Pencil is a waxy consistency that lasts all day and doesn't look powdery
- Very expensive for very little product
- Packaging is cheaply made for the price
While this product is good, it is extremely overpriced and not worth the money IMO. I have eyebrow pencils from other high end brands such as Lancome that have lasted YEARS and the brow wiz only lasted a couple of months. That may not sound that bad, but considering I didn't use it everyday and I only used it to fill in little sparse spots here and there, I think it should have lasted a lot longer.
The size of the pencil is very misleading and makes you think that there is more product in it than there actually is. In all actuality, it only contains about .08 grams of product. For $21, that is ridiculous. I went to use it the other day and actually thought there was something wrong with the pencil because none of the product was coming out. I did not expect it to run out so quickly! While this product does a decent job, I'm sure you can find cheaper alternatives that work just as well.

This eyebrow pencil is good in that it is fine tipped, has a spoolie at the end and isn't too red (I'm using the colour brunette). However, for £15 for a pathetic 0.08g amount of product, it is a HUGE RIP OFF. I have no problem spending money on products that are actually worth it and have some significant amount of product, but this isn't very different at all from many other brow products on the market that are considerably cheaper. Seriously do not waste your money, unless you want to be ripped off. It doesn't stay particularly well on the brows and will last a very short amount of time. The packaging is cheap, and looks like a £1 pencil, you would expect more from a company like this. Look elsewhere, the brand itself is not a reason to buy a product.

Hello lovely reader! If you wouldn't mind, please ask yourself the following questions:
*Do you want your "eyebrow game" to be "too strong" ?
*Do you want your eyebrows to be "on point"?
*Do you want people to be extremely envious of your beautiful brows?
*Do you really not care, and just want to look like a pretty human being with decent eyebrows???????
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, THEN YOU, MY FRIEND, ARE IN LUCK!!!!!
This eyebrow pencil is LITERALLY the only one I can find in a light enough shade for my blonde hair. I tried to find something that would work at the drugstore, but all of them just run way too dark! So, since this is the only thing that works, I fork over the crazy amount of money they ask for this thing.
This works very well. Unlike normal eyeliner-like pencils, it's small and easy to use. It is super simple to use, and it takes me under 30 seconds to completely fill in and set my brows.
Sure, it doesn't seem like a complete Godsend, but try going without it after months of using it! It's way better than they eyeliner pencils I was using before.
I you can afford it, I think it's totally worth the money. Splurge once, and it lasts for a long time, especially if you don't fill in your brows everyday.

I like this product, the color match is actually very good for me (Medium Ash) and it doesn't fade during the day. I like in a brow pencil like this one that you can do light strokes and build up the color as you go because I don't have that much experience with brow pencils.
I do think the packaging is too slim and a little flimsy and I'm always scared the little point is going to break if I'm too harsh.
I'm glad I bought this with 50% OFF because although I think it's a good product, I find it to be too expensive (at least in Chile).
I don't know if I would repurchase full price...maybe I would try something else but I would definitely buy this again on sale.

I have normal brows (not really dense but not too sparse) that require filling in from day to day, because they would look too light otherwise. Also, my brows are little short, so drawing in the tail in a simple and natural way is a huge concern; some brow pencils and powders (i.e. MAC, Maybelline, NYX, Clinique) take forever to do this and it's a real hassle in the morning. I was reasonably satisfied with my NYX brow pencil and didn't think that this would be any better, since it is merely a brow pencil. After putting off the purchase of the Brow Wiz for a couple of years, I finally caved and it is the best thing I could have done!
[ PROS ]
- Granite is a perfect match for me (I have natural black hair)
- The spoolie is truly very good at blending out the pencil marks to make the brow look very natural (almost helps the pencil imitate a powder -- no harsh lines at all)
- It was so simple and fast to draw the tail of my brow and it looked very natural
- My brow lasted more than 10 hours without fading or rubbing off even through a hot/sweaty day
[ CONS ]
- Definitely pricey for a brow pencil
- The packaging feels a little too thin and flimsy
Despite the steep price tag for what it really is, the outcome of using this was really a pleasant surprise! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a product that takes no time to create a very natural and realistic brow.
