Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer - Review!

Hey, friends! Queen Anastasia recently blessed our existence with a new brow product, and I for one was so excited I could hardly function. It took everything in me to  wait until it was available on Beauty Bay so I could throw them all of my money. For research and review purposes, obviously. Definitely not for personal gain. Nope.

The Brow Definer rocked up at my doorstep last week, and I obviously put it to the test immediately. I've used it around ten times to date and thus feel like I've got a fairly good grasp on how this baby performs, so let's get reviewing, shall we?

First of all, the packaging is droolworthy. I, like a lot of people at the moment, am a sucker for anything rose gold. The fact that the box boasts this metallic shade of gorgeousness was one of the aspects that convinced me to pick this thing up, actually. I'm superficial, ok?
The actual product is packaged beautifully also, boasting a black dual-ended design with the same rose gold detail. Speaking of the caps, these ones are the same size - unlike the original Brow Wiz packaging - which avoids the devastating moment wherein you crush your product by accidentally closing it with the wrong cap, woo!

As all good brow products should, this bad boy has a spooly on one end to brush your caterpillars into place and disperse product, while the other end contains the actual triangular brow pencil.
Said triangular design is supposed to allow you to create strokes of different thickness, though if I'm honest I haven't found this to be the case. After one or two uses the thinnest point became quite dull and thus gave me a less precise result, which was a shame because I preferred to use this angle to carve out my arch and tail. However, I've of course still been able to use the flat edge to do this!

Formula-wise, this baby is incredible. In my humble, beauty blogger opinion, this is the best of any Anastasia formula - yes, even better than dip brow. Take a second to retrieve your jaw from the floor. It doesn't cake, it blends out with no effort at all, and it sets in place all day. Plus, unlike the aforementioned Dip Brow, it cannot dry out in it's packaging.

Moreover, the shade Granite is spot on for my brows - I have very dark hairs with cool undertones, so I often find it difficult to source pencils that do no run warm. If, like me, your locks are dark brown/black, this is probably your jam!

My only issue with the formula is that it runs out very quickly. Although it lasts much longer than the Brow Wiz, I find myself twisting this bad boy up at least three or four times during my brow-drawing process. I feel as though I've used about a third of the 0.2g of sweet, sweet product in the week and a half I've owned this little thing, which isn't hugely cost effective in my eyes.

I find the best way to apply this product - for my brows personally - is to line the tail and arch with the flat edge, fill in the majority of the brow by holding the pencil perpendicular to my face, and finally flick the apex of the pencil in the front of my brow to create a soft gradient.

All in all, I genuinely love the way this product makes my eyebrows look, although I feel that for $26.80 a pop, this is best suited for those who only need some mild filling and shaping. If you're sculpting a new brow every day, you're going to go through these babies quicker than I go through a bag of salt and vinegar chips (very).

Have you tried this little wonder pencil? Let me know your thoughts!
