Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil - is it Perfect?

Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Strawburn
Ever since I started to wear make up in my mid teens, a very long time ago now!,  I have really struggled to find a suitable eyebrow pencil, in fact I never have.
It's not that there is any shortage of them to choose from, it's the fact that there simply are none that were the correct colour for my red hair eyebrows, in fact up to very recently I couldn't even find a eyebrow pencil that 'claimed' to be for redheads.
 I assumed that the cosmetic companies obviously thought all redheads had such perfect brows to begin with that we didn't need any help in that department!

Until tada! as if by magic Anastasia appeared!  errrr,  where have you been hiding????




The Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Strawburn is absolutely THE perfect colour for my brows, I have slightly odd brows they are a different red colour to my hair, alot lighter, there is fortunately, alot of hair on them, but it just doesn't quite match up and they seem to be getting fairer as the years go on.
Many redheads do have this problem,  your eyebrow hair being so fair that your brows are just not defined enough.
Well no more girls this is the answer!

Strawburn in Natural Daylight

Left Brow using Strawburn Right Brow Natural

The pencil is so very soft it glides onto the brows easily, I use small soft strokes just to define the brows, then comb through with the brush end of the pencil, to distribute the colour evenly. It deposits just enough colour to make a difference but your brows don't look 'drawn' on!
I think you can see the difference!

I love the fact that the pencil has a brush with it as well, so you don't even have to purchase a separate one if you don't have one already, making it great value for money in my humble opinion!

Although I don't have any sparse areas,  this would be equally as good for ladies who have over plucked in the past or just naturally have thin eyebrow hair.

So in short, Thank you Anastasia for acknowledging that redheads do exist and producing the best eyebrow pencil I have ever used, I salute you!

The brow pencil comes in 6 different shades, which will cover practically all brow shades, so excellent for everyone.

Anastasia Beverly Hills also sell a wide variety of products associated with eyebrow shaping,  brow gels, brow powder, brow stencils, tweezers to name but a few.

Back to Basics
RRP £17.00

It has only recently been introduced to the UK via cultbeauty.co.uk and as far as I'm aware this is the only UK stockist of the brand.
