If you were to ask me what my favorite brow product is I would say the….
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
It truly is an awesome product.
It is just small enough to be easily controlled so that you only get product where you want product…
BUT it’s anywhere from $20 to $25 depending on where you purchase. That’s not a huge amount when you consider what some prestige products cost but still it’s an eyebrow pencil.
You girls know that I’m all about finding a product that is just as good in quality but at a better price…
that lead me to this…
NYX Micro Brow Pencil
This one has been my go to for several years. It is almost identical to the ABH Brow Wiz in its performance. It’s a cult favorite simply by being a dupe for the ABH Brow Wiz. You really can’t tell the difference between the two and at a price tag of just $10 it was a no brainer for me.
then I found this…
Wet n Wild ultimatebrow Micro Brow Pencil
When I saw this one on a recent trip to Walgreens, I was intrigued because it was so similar to the NYX and ABH eyebrow pencils. This one comes in at just under $5. If it preformed anywhere near as well as the other two it would be an absolute steal.
So, how did it preform?
Like a dream….
All three are micro pencils. If you have never used a micro pencil they make doing brows a breeze. Sometimes doing eyebrows can be a bit challenging or maybe intimidating would be a better word. Micro pencils like these three take the worry out of doing your brows.
The small pencil head allows you the ability to fill in all the places your brows might need it without the worry of going too heavy with the product.
This one is a retractable pencil so you just twist the top to make the pencil tip come up.
All three come with a spoolie attached to the end of your pencil. The spoolie on the ABH and the NYX are ok…it’s good enough to get the job done but nothing to get too excited over. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the spoolie on the WnW pencil turned out to be. It’s a good makeup tool and the fact that it beats out it’s more expensive counterparts is impressive.
This one comes in FOUR colors.
If the other more expensive versions have more color choices so that might be an issue for some of you.
Which one would I choose?
They are all three my favorite brow products by far. I’m not a huge brow girl. I mean I do them all the time, it is the one makeup product I use the most but I don’t go to the extreme with my brows. Mainly I’m a “fill them in” kinda girl.
Having said all that…if we were standing in Ulta (the only store where you could buy all three of these) which one would I hand you?
Definitely the Wet n Wild, I think it preforms the best of the three without a doubt!
A word of CAUTION: Wet n Wild has a few other brow pencils and one is called the Wet n Wild ultimatebrow Brow Pencil that one is NOT this one. That one has a thicker tip and I don’t like it as much as this one. So, if you decide to try this one out make sure that it says MICRO.

Where to find this product
I found this one at Walgreens and I couldn’t find it online at either Amazon or Walmart. This one is an in-store purchase only but I have linked you to the WnW site just in case you want to order from there.
