**the picture above is from the Anastasia website because I couldn't get a good pic of the shape of mine.
If you are familiar with my blog you know that I'm a huge fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills. Everything that I have from them I've really liked. So it's never a question on whether or not I'm going to like a new product they launch, it's just a given.
Their newest product they've launched is the Brow Definer. Which in my eyes is like brow wiz on steroids. Its a triangle shape looking at it straight down the tube. The reason for the shape is so you can have three different ways to fill in your brows from thin-thicker-very thick. So you could use it for short thin strokes to mimic hair like a brow wiz using the tip of the brush, you could make thicker hairs by using the back side of the pencil. Or you could use it to fill in the brow quickly with the full length of the pencil flat against the skin. You could also use it to draw and sculpt the brow holding it parallel (longest side) and using the length of the product. Being somewhat of an angled brush shape it carves a brow much easier than a Brow Wiz but not as sculpted and intense as Dip Brow pomade is, and this gives you more control. The Brow Wiz is a thin pointed tip that works really well to mimic hairs but harder and more time consuming to fill in the entire brow and also harder to sculpt brows evenly. This makes that much, much easier due to the slanted angle provided by the pencil.
Now if you like that really intense brow, or ombre brow where the tail is super intense and sculpted I'd use Dip Brow and powder. If you like a softer, yet defined brow I would definitely use this. It just is more convenient and it cuts your time in half. Plus you don't have to reach for seven different products to do your brows. You have 3 options of application and a spooley brush on the opposite side. This spooley is bigger than the Brow Wiz spooley which I actually like the one on the Brow Wiz better. This works just as well though. I just prefer smaller spooleys. Another thing I LOVE about this is that you get .007 oz of product in this and in a Brow Wiz you get .003 oz. So that's more than double the product. My biggest issue with the Brow Wiz is that it runs out so fast on me and I'm hoping this won't do that. The Brow Definer is $2 more ($23) than the Brow Wiz ($21). If you have a pro discount with ABH you can not use it on the Brow Definer right now.
This is available on the ABH website (of course), and online at Sephora, Ulta, Macy's, Nordstrom and Dillards.
I also got 4 of the newer eye shadow shades they released for the fall. I got Henna, Prussian Blue, Macaroon and Party Dress.
Looking at these now with some of the other shades I have from their line I wish I would've picked some other colors maybe but none the less I really love these colors I just happen to own some that are similar. Henna is a gorgeous foiled type orange/copper shade but it reminds me of China Rose a little only way more intense and darker somewhat. Prussian Blue is a super pretty foiled blue shade, it reminds me of Mermaid and Dragon Fly though but more of a true blue. Macaroon is my jam. It's a foiled lavender/mauve shade and it's stunning. I would say it's kinda similar to Pink Champagne but this is definitely more lavender and better formula. Last but not least I got Party Dress which I wasn't really enthused about but it's actually really pretty it's neutral/nude with flecks of glitter in it that you can actually see instead of being all shimmer, this is more matte with glitter the tone of it is similar to Bengal but with glitter. Which makes that shade very unique and cool.
The quality of these are amazing. They're even better than the first shadows they released that I have and I'm still a big fan of those. The Titanium line had a lot of fall out originally but the new foiled style shades like Henna, Prussian Blue and Macaroon adhere better to the eye, keep their intensity, and are more opaque it seems. Where as the Titanium shades like Pink Champagne and Metal needed to be layered over another shadow I found. Not that I didn't love those anyways these are just even better.
Another really awesome thing is that before you got a discount if you done an 8 well palette. Now you can do a 4 well palette for $40. Making these $10 a piece when, I believe, regularly they're $12 a piece. So that's actually really awesome.
They have said that their shadows and other products besides brow products are coming to Ulta, Sephora, etc, sometime in early spring I'm guessing. So if you're someone who needs to see things in person (I'm looking at you, Savannah.) You will be able to do so.
In this picture above I'm wearing Henna in the center. Bengal in the crease and some Red Earth as well. Then on the outer and inner corners I'm wearing Noir, layered over Deep Plum, over Smoke which is over Red Earth. So if you were to apply it you would Bengal in the crease first, Red Earth on the inner and outer corners and buffed into the crease, then Smoke on the inner and outer corners, then over that you'd do Deep Plum and finish with Noir. Although you could finish with Deep Plum and it look awesome as well. I took a little Deep Plum into the crease as well, just a smidge to carve out the crease.
I loved this so much that I didn't want to take it off at night and it's been a while since I've loved a look that much.
In this picture I'm wearing Macaroon as the star of the show. It's beautifully frosted and lavender. I applied it with my finger to the center of the lid.
Also using the Brow Definer as well for my brows. And that was the only thing I used to fill in/sculpt my brows.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
