Anastasia Brow Pencil: I Think I Hear a Stampede

Most brow pencils are quite pigmented and they require some finesse so that you don't overdo it. I would know, I have very thick brows which are no-so-thick as they approach my nose. Enhancing my brows there is like walking a thin line between naturally-born female and 'wow, that operation wasn't exactly a success.' I tend to skip enhancing my brows altogether simply because I end up looking so ridiculously severe and angry. Enter Anastasia's wonderful brow pencil.

Because of this pencil, I no longer have to dread being questioned on my femininity or my friendliness. The pencil is hard and waxy and I think this is what keeps my eyebrow hairs in place all day. I also am guessing that this is what also makes the brow pencil a bit sheer, which is exactly the reason it is so perfect.

Brow pencils for people with black hair are usually too severe, too dark, too brown, too gray, etc. Anastaria's brow pencil in Brunette is a perfect natural enhancer to my dark brows. Since the product is sheer, it really gives you the ability to build up to the look you want. Even then, it takes a lot of work to look like your brows are anything but natural with this brow pencil.

The sparse-r area near my nose is a true test to whether a brow pencil is worth its weight in blush. Anastasia's brow pencil has surpassed this test. I can fill in the inner corner of my brows and the result is so unbelievably natural that I went out to get a back-up of this. Oh, and did I mention it lasts all day? Run or stampede your way to get this brow pencil. It's a dark-haired girl's best friend (brow-wise anyway).

When I was little, a rock fell on my eye. No injuries, but I got a scar on one eyebrow from it. I really don't like having uneven brows, and brow pencils never looked good. Maybe I will try this! Thanks!

Thank you for posting this! I have brows that are kind of ~ shape and I've given up on threading since they all try to give me the generic brow which takes away my personality...I mean if it works for SRK why can't it work for ME?
But I still want my brows to look groomed and black pencils make me look like Groucho bloody Marx...not particulary attractive (unless you're Mrs. Groucho)
I'll be snapping up one of these babies asap!
Love your blog, by the way. It's sooo cool to have advice tailored to non-blond people.
