If you have any interest at all in the shape and upkeep of your eyebrows, and you haven’t heard of Anastasia Soare, I implore you to read this review. In short, Anastasia is a name synonymous with perfect brows. Don’t believe me? Then just take a look at some of the celebrity clients who have trusted their eyebrows to Anastasia: Heidi Klum, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Reese Witherspoon. Is it a coincidence that all of these lovely ladies are known for their utterly flawless eyebrows?
Trust me when I tell you that my eyebrows have been my Achilles heel my entire life. As a young girl, I had the standard caterpillar brows, which quickly transformed into a goth look when I hit high school (tweezed beyond recognition). During college I tried to grow them out but I just could never seem to get them right. I still struggle with the shape of my brows every single day and I’ve yet to find a brow technician who “gets me” and understands exactly how my brows should frame my face. So I’ve pretty much given up on professional waxing and, sadly, my DIY approach has yielded mediocre results.
If you need a total brow makeover, I highly recommend picking up the Six Elements Brows Kit. This kit includes an instructional DVD (watch it before you begin!), Precision Tweezers, Brow Powder Duo, Brow Stencils (Set of Five Shapes), Mini Duo Brush #7 and Anastasia’s Best-Selling Clear Brow Gel.
Don’t worry over the Brow Stencils, in this kit Anastasia has every brow shape covered. This is hands-down the best stencil collection I have ever seen and I was jumping for joy when I actually, after all these years, found a stencil that perfectly worked for my particular shape. Most stencils never seem quite right, but I’m confident that you will find one that works here because, let’s face it, Anastasia knows brows like no one else. I would pay the retail price of this kit for the stencils and tweezers alone.
Of all the wonderful products I tested, I have to give special props to two in particular. First, the Brow Wiz ROCKS because it’s got the most extra-fine point imaginable, enabling you to really get between the hairs and fill in your brows for a look that doesn’t smear or fade throughout the day. The pencil itself is firm enough so that the tip never breaks, yet it deposits the perfect amount of pigment. Plus, it’s self-sharpening!
The other product that I love is the Matte Highlighter pencil in “Camille” – part of the Brow Kit and 1/2 of the Brow Duality Pencil. If you need to give your brows some extra oomph, this pencil is THE solution. One swipe under each brow and your brows will suddenly appear more defined and absolutely flawless. The texture of this pencil is creamy but not too creamy, it blends like a dream and it’s not so bright that it makes you look like you’re wearing a highlighter. It’s magic. Really.
Additionally, the wht team members received an array of eye-enhancing Anastasia products, so please stay tuned for their reviews in the comments. We will be discussing loads of Anastasia Beverly Hills products including the Brow Definer, the Brow Duality pencil, Lash Lifting Mascara, Go Brow (a universal brow pencil), the Brow Pen (a long wearing brow tint) and the Perfect Brow Pencil (duel ended with a spoolie).
Whew! And seriously, if you can’t improve your brows with one or more of Anastasia’s products, you might want to consider rocking the no-brow look.
