As a self-professed makeup addict, I always want to try new products. I’ve been filling in my brows since 2008, so the brow craze certainly took long enough. I love all of the new brow pencils that are available now, but one product I have been itching to try is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade.
The reason I didn’t immediately snatch up the Anastasia Dipbrow is because it scared me! It seemed like an intense, dramatic product for ultra-bold, statement brows. Just like everything I’m on the fence about, I endlessly researched it on YouTube. I heard Samantha Jane talk about it enough that I finally decided to try it.
Luckily, I was wrong! The Anastasia Dipbrow can create dramatic brows, if you want, but it also creates natural brows, too. I use their #12 brush for application. It’s a double sided brush. One one side you have a stiff, slanted brush and on the other side a spoolie. For me, a spoolie brush is essential! I hate when brow pencils come with combs.
The pomade is thick and rich in pigment. A little goes a long way! You need the tiniest bit on your brush, and even then I wipe it off into the inside of the pomade cap. I start by filling in the base of the brow, then a move on to the arch, followed by the tail. At the end I brush out the color for a little blending action.
While the color is a no-budge, waterproof formula, you do need a gel if your brow hairs need taming.
I normally use brow powder. Brow powder is nice because it’s easy and fast to apply. Only complaint is that something it looks too soft, like I’ve used the blur tool in Photoshop. Plus, with powder you can’t really expand or extend your natural brow line.
I would definitely purchase this again, but luckily I won’t have to for quite some time. I think the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade will last me a very long time.
