Products:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz was the original product produced in this form from Korea. The texture of this formula is slightly creamy but still stiff while applying to the skin.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil is also made from the same Korea manufacturer. The texture of this formula is waxier in texture and can pile up if you over working it in one area, but still stiff while applying to the skin.

Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner is a Germany manufactured pencil with a wax based formula in a stiff pencil form. I found this one a touch smoother than the Nyx formula but not as cream as the Anastasia one.

This Marcelle pencil "lead" width is about 0.75mm wider in diameter compare to the Anastasia and NYX pencils. The rest of the Germany pencils below as well are this 0.75mm wider dimension.

Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner is a Germany manufactured pencil with a wax based formula in a stiff pencil form. I found it was hard to get even coverage with this one because the formula is dryer but if you're using this to fill in small area's and singles hair it's fine for that purpose. 

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Blonde is a Germany manufactured pencil with a wax based formula in a stiff pencil form. I found it was hard to get even coverage as well and did slightly pile up with too much product overlaying. I also found this one slightly sheer but it's not a bad thing to have that sheer natural look to the colour over a heavy line.


Colour:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz:
Taupe(formerly Ash Blonde) is a cool brown with a satin-matte finish.
Caramel is a warm light brown with a satin-matte finish.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil:
Taupe is a cool brown with a satin-matte finish.
Auburn is a rusty brown with a satin-matte finish.

Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner in Fair Ash Blond is a warm taupe grey with a satin-matte finish.

Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Light is a warm brown with a satin-matte finish.

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Blonde is a neutral light brown with a satin-matte finish.

Wear: I got about 16 hours wear on their own in the brows for each of them.

Packaging:
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, NYX Micro Brow Pencil are made by the same South Korea manufacture.

The Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner, Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner, & L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer are all made by the same Germany manufacture.

Flash Swatches:  Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe, NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe, Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner in Fair Ash Blonde  (single stroke, heavy stroke and blocked out)

Flash Swatches: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Caramel, NYX Micro Brow Pencil Auburn, Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Light, & L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Blonde (single stroke, heavy stroke and blocked out)
Winner: Again all of these work nicely on me. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is the most creamy/soft to apply but all of them are stiff on the skin to create a nice sharp brow hair like line strokes.

In terms of which shades I like, all of them work for me but because I'm soo fair for days I'm not wear a full face of makeup the lighter/greyer tones of Marcelle Nano Eyebrow Liner in Fair Ash Blond works for me to light define my brows.
