SWAP FOR SAFER | Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil

A good mechanical brow pencil is hard to find, but the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is a cult favorite---and for good reason.

It mimics the look of real brow hairs and has an extensive shade selection for every hair color and skin tone. BUT, the ingredients are less than stellar.

One brand that has released a non-toxic mechanical brow pencil is Honest Beauty, and I'd say it's worth the swap!

Let's get started!

Fill in, shape and bring color to brows for a defined, fresh look with our Brow Filler. Dual‐ended eyebrow pencil creates a natural looking, full effect with a brush for easy blending. Fuller brows faster!

Available in 4 shades ($15, 0.01 oz). Review


Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax, Cire d’Abeille), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Glycerides, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (Cire de Candelilla), Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Glyceryl Caprylate, Tocopherol, Mica. May Contain +/-: Iron Oxides (CI 77491/77492/77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Mica (CI 77019)

Compared to....

An award-winning ultra-slim, retractable pencil that creates precise, hair-like strokes. Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz's fine tip to spot-fill areas where brow hair is sparse, and the custom spooley end to blend for a flawless finish.

Available in 10 shades ($21, 0.003 oz).


Hydrogenated Soybean Oil/Hydrogenated Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil/Hydrogenated Huile Végétale, Zinc Stearate, Stearic Acid, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cire De Carnauba, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).

The Honest Beauty Brow Filler is Cruelty-Free but is not Vegan, while the Anastasia Brow Wiz is Cruelty-Free and Vegan. I do hope that Honest Beauty releases more shades and makes their Pencils Vegan!
