Anastasia Brow Wiz vs. Benefit Precisely My Brow

Hey guys! 
How's Monday treating you?

I'm sharing my love for brows today. I'm sure some of you have seen the picture that has been floating around where you see a girl with no eyebrows. It basically just shows how important eyebrows are and how filling them in makes a world of difference on your face. 
I couldn't agree more. 
I wish I would've started filling my brows in earlier in life. 

I would have to say the one thing that takes me the longest in the morning while doing my makeup is my eyebrows. I have thee funkiest brows. One is two toned and in need of some serious help. Then the other one lays semi nice, easier to fill, & to shape. 
Does anyone else have this issue?
I'm always jealous of those girls who have thick beautiful brows, and don't need to do much work. 
I wish. 

I'm excited about this post because I love reading comparison posts on other blogs & I have always had a passion for makeup.  Now I get to share that passion with all of you. A big part of the reason why I started this little blog. 

I decided to compare Anastasia Brow Wiz & Benefit Precisely my brow. I will say this was incredibly hard because they are so similar. 
Since I discovered how important filling in your brows was I have always used Anastasia Brow Wiz. I even showed my love for this product by adding it to my beauty products I've been obsessing over. You can find that post here.  I just recently and by recently I mean 3 weeks ago, bought Benefit's Precisely, My Brow pencil. 
I wanted to switch things up for my own excitement & my one and only complaint with Anastasia Brow wiz is the fact that it doesn't last very long. I feel like I was always having to replace it.

To start out I will say.. 
1. I love the fact that they both have a very fine tip to create hairlike strokes which to me is so important if your going for more of a natural looking brow. 

2. They both have spoolies at the end to comb out your brows which is so nice. I love Anastasia brow wiz spoolie. It literally brushes every single hair in your brow, but my spoolie has cracked off completely the past two times I have bought this eyebrow pencil.  
Benefit's spoolie is a tad bigger and just doesn't quite compare, but it has never broke on me. 

3. Anastasia offers a few more shades for your brows. It was really hard finding my right color  because I do have cooler tones in my brows. Both Benefits & Anastasia pencil matched fairly well. So I don't think you will have a problem matching your brows with either one of these products.

Side-note: They say if you want natural looking eyebrow go a shade lighter than your actual brows.

4. The packaging of Benefits precisely my brow is adorable. Any packaging by Benefit always takes the cake. It's so unique & fun. All of their products have the cutest packaging.

5. There is a little price difference with these two. Anastasia is $21 and Benefit comes in at $24. 

6. Anastasia Brow wiz offers you more product for less money which is awesome but like I said earlier the product from what I have noticed goes fast. I think because it glides on so easy it makes the product come out faster so you end up wiping a lot more of it off when you use the spoolie to comb out your brows then you'd like and I don't know if I am doing something wrong.

On top of the two brow pencils, I use Anastasia Dip Brow & Benefits Gimme Brow. I love them both but Benefits Gimme Brow takes the win. 
I love this product.  
The fact that it adds color to each individual hair making your natural eyebrow look fuller and keeps each hair in place. 
Anastasia Dip brow is great but you have to have a separate brush to apply. It lasts a very long time,  I haven't even made a dent in it and I've had it over a year.  So if I ever run low on my brow pencil, dip brow always comes in handy to hold me over until I can order another.

Again, I think anybody would be happy with any of these products but it just depends on what you are looking for. Personally I like the Benefits Precisely My Brow. The color matches perfect. It lasts a lot longer for me, the spoolie has never broken off like Anastasia Brow Wiz which is a win.

Try them & tell me what you think.
 If you already use one of these products tell me why you like them? 
 if you have never filled in your brows.. you should try, it's a game changer.

 I hope everyone has a great week!
