Thanks to the rise of Julia Barretto and Janine Guttierrez, bushy, perfectly-groomed brows were the Filipina’s 2015 obsession. Unfortunately, not all of us were born with such covetable arches. But as we makeup junkies always say, if you ain’t got it, fake it!
That’s why this week’s Splurge vs. Save zeroes in on one product we can no longer live without: the perfect eyebrow pencil. While you are welcome to experiment with different products, brow pencils easily provide the most control. They mimic your natural brow hairs, create believable texture, and provide flawless color from front to tail. See our picks below!

SPLURGE: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, P1,563
Coming from an unparalleled brow expert is the cult-status Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This award-winner is every celebrity MUA’s brow weapon of choice. With its ultra-slim, retractable pencil format, the Brow Wiz seamlessly fills in sparse areas and easily matches your hair color with seven versatile, smear-proof shades. The spoolie end blends out any harsh lines to give your brows a natural yet well-groomed texture. We’d say this makeup must-have is worth more than the investment. Besides, you can’t put a price on perfect brows.

SAVE: Tony Moly Lovely Eyebrow Pencil, P178
If your budget is on the tight side, Tony Moly’s Lovely Eyebrow Pencil delivers almost identical results for a price that barely dents your wallet. Like the Brow Wiz, its retractable pencil provides quick ‘n’ easy definition in a few strokes. The creamy, blendable formula delivers opaque, buildable color, so your arches can go from soft and natural to dark and dramatic! Just use the spoolie to blend the product over any patchy areas and brush unruly hairs into place. For only P178, you can stockpile these pencils and get brows that wow for life.
