I don’t know about you, but I have been using the Anastasia Brow Wiz to lightly fill in my brows for years… it’s my holy grail product, and I can’t change it up or put it down. Recently they’ve come out with the new Definer, which is a very similar product with subtle changes that could potentially shorten the amount of time it takes to shape the perfect brows. I ran out to my local Sephora to snag a new Brow Definer, and it looks super promising, so I thought I would write you guys a comparison and first impression to see which would be a better product for you!
The packaging for both brow pencils looks very similar, both being sleek and black with the signature Anastasia look, but they vary on the overall shape. The Brow Wiz is a lot thinner and longer than the Brow Definer, which seems a bit thicker and more compact.
Both Brow pencils are still retractable with a spooley on each end making them convenient and easy to use. The shape of the actual product is the main difference to these products. The Brow Wiz has been known to be a small rounded amount of product to give you the ability to precisely define your brows or create the look of little hair in small strokes, but the Definer is a thicker, angled pencil that covers more space and is used to more easily fill in sparse brows.
The Brow Definer glides on with pigmented color very similar, if not identical to the Brow Wiz. The only true difference is that the Brow Definer has a triangular top with a wider surface area to more easily fill in brows. This definitely comes in handy, and it cut down my application time significantly! Because the pencil has such a unique shape, you can use the thin top of the triangle to draw in small light hairs, turn the pencil on a side angle to draw quick straight lines, or you can use the fatter end of the triangle pencil to shade in sparse areas of your brows quickly.
I have yet to try a product by Anastasia that I don’t like, and this is no exception. The Brow Wiz was definitely my favorite product, but I may have to switch over to the Brow Definer just for the ease of use, quicker application time, and high quality. I love the fact that I can maneuver the pencil to do what I want, whether it be small strokes or shading in a complete area, and it also saves me a boat-load of time in the morning.
I give the Brow Definer two thumbs up, and will continue to use it until who knows when. Has anyone else tried this product or compared it to their normal brow products? Let me know below, I love a good comparison!
Until next time, thanks for reading,
