Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Granite

A few months ago I found myself in the awkward position of having changed my hair colour to a cerise pink with purple undertones, which looks red in some lights, pink in others, and purple sometimes too.  Suddenly, my favourite rose pink lipliner, which was a perfect brow match for my previous hair colour, was all wrong.  Naturally, since I was visiting the US, I went to Sephora and asked for help choosing a new brow colour which didn't match my hair, but was cool toned enough to be a good match.  The makeup artist pointed me towards Anastasia's Brow Wiz and I've been hooked ever since.

Brow Wiz is a dual-ended product, one end containing a very, very fine pencil, and one end containing a mascara spoolie style eyebrow brush.  The pencil end is fine enough, soft enough, and pigmented enough that it easily fills in and shapes brows for a defined look, even where brows are a bit patchy.  After application, you can use the brush to soften the pencil and to tidy up any misaligned hairs.

It doesn't offer anything by way of taming - if your brows are unruly, this product alone won't tame them - it just offers natural looking colour for perfectly defined brows.  It also comes in an impressive range of shades - nine of them to be exact - meaning that you can get a good match regardless of your hair colour and skin tone.  Granite is suggested for those with very dark hair with cool, ashy tones, and despite my hair being bright not dark, it contrasts well, with the coolness of the shade making for a complimentary match.

At £15.50, Brow Wiz is more expensive than high street brow pencils, but worth it if you struggle to find a shade to match, or if you're looking for the most natural way to fill in gaps.  Find it at BeautyBay.

Disclosure:  Bought by me.  I actually bought two, that's how impressed I was.  I'll be buying them in twos from now on.
