Vivianna from Vivianna Does Makeup (you all know) kind of did an opposite piece to this. She was obsessed with this pencil first + then recently moved on to the Anastasia Brow Wiz. I have done the opposite so I thought I would share my feelings towards the Hourglass pencil. I love both but I have been reaching for this one more when I am initially applying my makeup + then the Anastasia Brow Wiz for touch ups if maybe I applied my brow pencil too quickly in the morning or didn't do a great job.
I bought the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in the shade Soft Brunette because despite being a blonde I do like a darker, bolder brow. What I like about this one over the Anastasia pencil is that it's a lot quicker to apply + it seems to stick to my skin better, which sounds odd so perhaps I should explain. My eyebrows have never been very long so I have to extend them + I find this pencil makes that 'task' (let's be seri, it's not really a task) a lot easier + quicker because the Anastasia doesn't always stick onto skin where there are no hairs I find. Maybe that's just me. But maybe not. I don't know pals. I also like that this is waxier so I don't need a brow gel on top of it. I'm not going to say much about the spooly sitch: it works. It only comes in three shades whereas the Anastasia comes in quite a few more so that is also something to bear in mind.
My only problemo with this is that the triangular nib isn't THE most precise thang in the world. But that is why I also like to have the Anastasia Brow Wiz for touch ups just in case. That might seem excessive but I do my eyebrows every single day whereas I don't even wear mascara every day. So there. Stop with the judging eyeballs.
