Nyx Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade + Nyx Micro Brow Pencil

As you all may know I am a sucker for eyebrows. I have noticed the craze that has been associated with the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products particularly the Brow Wiz pencil and the Dip Brow pomade so being the frugalista that I am I decided to do a little searching and I found dupes for the both of them.

Nyx has really been stepping it up in 2015. That have released many new products and I managed to get my hands on two of them. I found Nyx's Micro Brow Pencil and their Tame and Frame Brow Pomade at Ulta. They both retail for 7.99 which is more that half the price of both of the Anastasia Beverly Hills products.

Here is how I use the two products to do my brows:


Step 1: I started off by grooming the brow using the spoolie brush found on the MicroBrow Pencil.

Step 2: Using the other side of the Micro Brow pencil I then outlined the shape of the brow.

Step 3: After filling in my brows using the Tame & Frame brow pomade I then went in with LA Girl's Pro Conceal in Medium Beige to clean the bottom of my brow

Step 4: Lastly I blended out the concealer and created a gradient effect at the front of the brow using the Nyx Micro Brow Pencil's spoolie brush.

Final verdict

Nyx Micro Brow Pencil
This pencil is seriously a bang for your buck. I love how the pencil has a spoolie brush attatched to make grooming a cinch. The only slight downside about the product is the color. The shade esspresso has a slight red undertone to it which I was not expecting. Other than that I would highly recommend this pencil. With the small precise pencil tip you will be able to create perfect natural looking brows.

Nyx Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade
Comparing the two products I would have to say that I prefer this one. Although it does require more work (on my opinion) the staying power of of this stuff is amazing. The color perfect  & the pomade will have your brows laid (literally!). Surprisingly it also comes with a lot of product as well so I won't need to replace this product any time soon.

Overall I truly do enjoy both of these products. Together they create a flawless brow and not to mention for a wonderful price. Both of the products come in a variety of colors that are sure to suit anybody. If you are looking for a great alternative to the ever so popular Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products these are the way to go. Check out my everyday eyebrow routine using the two products here.
