NYX vs Anastasia Brow Products - Review & Demo

Hi Bellas,

I'm so excited to have a new video up.  This one took a bit of testing out but i've finally got it down - my comparison and recommendations on NYX vs Anastasia Brow Products.  There are a lot of details I considered from price, to amount of product to performance and shade range.  Check it out!

Check out the video!

 NYX Micro Brow Pencil $9.99 (8 shades)
Anastasia Brow Wiz $21 (9 shades)
Honestly the packaging looks nearly identical.  I find that the NYX Brow Pencil does get a little more clumpy.  If you plan on doing a quick natural brow, they're super similar.  But if you like using more product to create a dramatic brow, I would go with the Anastasia Brow Wiz because the formula spreads better.  I would recommend both - I have even purchased the NYX pencils for my kit.

NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade $6.99 (5 shades)
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade $18 (11 shades)

Anastasia wins this category hands down.  It is more expensive and you get less product, but the product performs much better.  NYX's version is too waxy and hard to get precision with it.  Anastasia also has a better shade range.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara $6.99 (5 shades available)
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel $22 (7 shades available)

Once again, Anastasia takes the cake.  The NYX Tinted Brow Mascara is a little too heavy and I find that it clumps together your brows too quickly.  Plus, the color range is a little too cool toned for my preference.  I prefer Anastasia's thinner formula.  However, if you need a clear brow gel, skip this expensive stuff and get yourself a cheapo clear mascara.  

I hope this review helped you all.  Again, this is my personal opinion on what worked for me.  If you have any questions, let me know in the products below!  Also, if you want any more specific NYX product reviews from my massive Prize Haul, let me know!

Thanks for doing this comparison. I've tried alot of brow products and always go back to Anastasia. I've only tried NYX microbrow pencil and I'm loving it for my everyday brows. I agree that you can't do a more beat brow with their pencil without it getting waxy. BUT it works perfectly for a natural brow look. I don't have much brows either so this is nice to have without breaking the bank. :) I will continue to use Anastasia dipbrow pomade on special occasions or when I want a more dramatic brow look.
