Project Swatch #12: Brow Powder Duos Review, Swaches & Comparison

Interrupting the eyeshadow swatchfest, I bring you some eyebrow powder swatches! (I’ll have more eyeshadow swatches for you tomorrow)

Wet n Wild

I own two very similar eyebrow powder duos at two very different price points: the Anastasia Brow Powder duo in Brunette, and the Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit in Ash Brown, which seems to be the only color available.


I’ve swatched this one a little differently; I wanted to be able to see the two lighter shades compared, and the two darker shades compared.

As you can see, the two duos are very similar, but have subtle differences. The lighter Anastasia shade looks like a taupe to me, while the Wet n Wild is more of a brown. The darker Anastasia is definitely in deep brown territory, while the Wet n Wild veers into brown/black.  My guess is that the Anastasia duo one shade darker – Ebony – would also be very close to the Wet n Wild.

As for texture – they’re both quite good. Both are soft and silky, though the Wet n Wild kicks up a bit more dust when I use it.  The Wet n Wild packaging is practical but unpretty, and the Anastasia packaging is elegant (but is that worth an extra $19? I don’t know).

  • I love your profile description, very smart idea and you have great swatches! Any tips you can share? And the wet n wild shadows look fantastic 🙂

    • Thanks so much! You have great swatches too. The only thing I make sure to do is take my swatches in natural light.

    The anastasia sure looks pretty but i agree totally not worth the extra $19 for packaging. Do they both last as long on the brows?:)

    • Yeah, it’s a bit steep! They both seem to last all day on me, though I do have normal to dry skin, so I don’t usually have trouble with things fading too fast.

      ooh lucky!haha im dry/combo everything seems to slide right off my t-zone-.-”anywho great post&i think i’ll give the wet n wild duo a go.thanks!:)

  • I’ve heard so many good things about Anastasia brow products but have never actually tried any of their products. But if WNW is similar I wouldn’t pay the extra cost! Thanks for the comparison! 🙂

    • The one thing that does make the Anastasia nice is that it comes in so many shades – if my brows were lighter or redder, the WnW wouldn’t match me at all, but with my almost-black brows, it really is a great match!
