I have a comparison post for you today as I think I have found a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Cue the Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow Filling Pencil and Brush. I discovered this on a recent shopping spree in Boots. As soon as I saw it I wondered if it would be a dupe for the Brow Wiz.
As you can see the packaging is pretty similar. They are both slim retractible pencils with a brush on one end and the wind up pencil on the other. I think if all of he writing and colour wore off these products I would have no idea which was which from the packaging.
The colours I have are Ash Blonde in the Brow Wiz and Blondshell in the Archery. I find the colours are very similar when applied to the brows. However, I can tell the difference when they are swatched on my hand. The Brow Wiz is ever so slightly darker than the Archery.
Today I applied the Brow Wiz on my left brow and the Archery on my right brown so I could compare the formula and longevity of the pencils. I have quite hairy (is that the right word!) brows so I do not need to fill them in a whole lot. I just like to deepen them and fill in any gaps. I found both pencils applied smoothy and lasted all day. In the picture below you can see that there is really no difference between my brows. I promise the do match in real life but my brows do funky things in pictures. I applied boy pencils at 7.30am this morning and this picture was taken at 4.30pm this afternoon. They still look perfect after 9 hours wear! I must say, I’m very impressed I have found a great dupe!
The Brow Wiz is £15.50 and the Archery is £8. Thats nearly half the price! When I run out of both of these I will definitely be repurchasing the Archery to save myself some money.
