What a long name for a product huh? The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade has been all the rage for the last year or so and I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about.
Since my brows are naturally full(ish), I don’t normally splurge on products to fill them in and just use any old $5 pencil to get the job done. However, with all the hype that this pomade has gotten over the last year, there must be something magical to it, right?
I got the shade Chocolate, which is a dark brown with a slightly warm undertone. For reference, my skin shade is NW45 in MAC and my hair is black. Chocolate seems to be a good match for me but there are 9 other shades available.
The consistency of the pomade is like a creamy, thick mousse. It is also waterproof and smudge-proof so your brows can stay put.
As you can see in the photo above, I use an angled brush to apply the pomade to the bottom edge of my brows to give it a crisp outline and then fill in any sparse areas anywhere else. I then use a spoolie to brush through the hairs and blur the pomade for a more natural look.
The brush I used is a dual ended brow brush from Ardell that I purchased from eBay.
I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade for $18 on Amazon but it is also sold at Sephora and Ulta.
Overall, despite the price, I really like the Dipbrow Pomade. The color Chocolate is a great match and I can quickly apply the product to both brows with just a few swipes and then brush it out for as natural or dramatic a look as I want. You get great color payoff with this and a little goes a long way, so this jar should last quite a while.
Is this a MUST over a regular brow pencil or powder? I don’t think so. I think you can get just as defined a brow with a pencil but the pomade may save you just a few strokes.
Thanks for reading!
