NYX Micro Brow Pencil

Eyebrows are one of the most important things when it come to doing my makeup so when I ran out of my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, I obviously had to restock.  Because I was still not financially stable at this time, I looked around for a good dupe.  NYX is one of my go-to drugstore brands so I was excited to see that they had an eyebrow pencil similar to the Brow Wiz.  I was not sure how I felt about the pencil at first but a gave it a couple a chances before I decided how to feel about it.  Keep reading to see if this pencil is a hit or miss! Enjoy!

I got this brow pencil in the color Espresso.  I personally think this color is too warm for me but the next dark color was brown black, which I think would have been way to dark for me.  The first thing I noticed when applying it was that the formula was not as creamy as the one for the Brow Wiz.  It was a bit hard to apply at first because of this but I have no problems with apply it now that I’m used to the pencil.

The second thing that I don’t really like is the color issue.  I think they should have a shade in between the Espresso and the Brown Black, but then again, I didn’t actually sample the brown black.

Overall I think my biggest issue with this pencil was that it was not as creamy of a formula as I was used to but it’s really something that you get over after a while.  At first I was really disappointed with this pencil and I didn’t want to use it anymore.  Because I had no choice, I decided to tweak how I apply the brow pencil a bit and that seemed to help out a lot.

I’ve been using this pencil for about a month now and I think it’s a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Brow Wiz and also a cheaper alternative($10).  I do recommend this pencil for someone that is on a budget, however, once I go through the NYX pencil, I will be going back to the Brow Wiz.

Have you tried out the NYX Micro Brow Pencil?  What are your thoughts on it?

  1. So glad I found this post! I was thinking of giving this a try since I usually don’t use a brow pencil (I prefer pomades), but after reading I might try a different one. Thank you!!!

  2. Too bad it’s not a cheaper alternative! I find these skinny types of pencils to get used up SO quickly! I’ve not tried this but I’ve tried other drugstore types. Now I’m a die-hard Shu Uemura pencil fan.
