DUPE for Anastasia Brow Wiz

DSC_0931

This does not come as a surprise since a lot of drugstore brands has stepped up their brow game and I am very pleased about that. I feel like Anastasia has set the bar high on brow products and I compare everything to it.

I told myself I wouldn’t buy another Brow Wiz because I finished it in about a month. That’s 27 hard earned dollars for one skinny pencil. I was very happy when I found cheaper alternatives like this one.

 

COMPARISONS

Size/Amount

As the pictures suggest, the L’Oréal has a skinnier tip.

But apparently both of them have 0.003 oz.

Pigment

L’Oréal puts more pigment in one swipe. It is more creamy than the Brow Wiz but it’s not too creamy like an eyeliner would be.

Anastasia needs two swipes to achieve the pigment of L’Oréal in one swipe but I like it better because there is more room for mistakes. A heavy hand wouldn’t be a problem since it applies lightly and apt for a more feathery brow look (which I am digging!).

Packaging

Both have the same concept of a double ended product and spoolie.

L’Oréal wins it for this one because of the clear cap on the spoolie side. Is it just me or am I really bad at figuring out which side the spoolie is on?!

Price

L’Oréal C$8.99 (I got in on sale at the Superstore)

Anastasia C$27

That’s more than double! L’Oréal definitely wins this category!

Colour Selection

Unfortunately, L’Oréal only has 3 shades in their range: Blonde, Brunette, and Dark Brunette.

I picked up Brunette and noticed that it is very similar, just a little warmer, than Anastasia’s Medium Brown.

I don’t know if you notice but the Anastasia one is a tiny bit cool toned.

For the price point, I think the L’Oréal Brow Stylist Definer is a good alternative/dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz.

I heard the new Nyx Micro Brow Pencil also comes as a close dupe for the Brow Wiz. That’s probably next on my list once I finish both of these!

Do you guys know other brow products that coud be a dupe to the Anastasia Brow Wiz? Let me know!

DUPE for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Dupe alert!

The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper has been a cult favorite since it came out. It is the blackest black waterproof eye liner with a brush tip that makes it easier to do a fleek wing that stays put for the whole day.

From hunting for a drugstore alternative, my sister and I have come across a very similar dupe for it which is the Physicians Formula Eye Booster™2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum.

This eyeliner claims to boost lash volume, length and thickness, but I don’t see any effect for that matter. I don’t really care because finding a good dupe is always a good thing.

Both eyeliners have an identical skinny brush tip. I personally prefer brush tipped liners instead of felt tip because it’s easier to do a sharp flick with it.
