So, if you have been reading my blog for any good length of time you would know that I am a huge advocate of filling in your brows. I have tried several different brow products over the years. Pencils, pressed powders, eyeshadows, loose powders, and now finally a creamy product. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade has made a big splash on the beauty scene recently and I couldn’t resist the temptation any longer.
My sister has used Tarte’s brow mousse in the past (which has a similar texture) and she raved but I wasn’t sure I was ready for something like that. She is a newb when it comes to more “advanced” makeup techniques so I should have stood up and listened when she was telling me about it but I didn’t. Why didn’t I listen? GAH
Enter Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade…
This little pot of goodness holds 0.14 oz of product which is MORE than enough, for like, ever… When I say you need the little bittiest bit that is exactly what I mean. For someone that has preferred powders all these years the potency of this has actually been a learning process. I have overdone my brows on a few occasions now but I have learned how to correct my not-heavy-hand. It is actually quite blend-able while being extremely pigmented. Another notable trait is that it lasts all day. Once it sets it doesn’t smear, travel, or budge a millimeter! It leaves your brows PERFECT for the entire day. The consistency really acts like a pomade would to lock untidy hairs in place.
Since I switched my brow routine up and started using this I have gotten comments everywhere I go. I have had comments on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, from people I know, FROM PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW… Everyone has taken notice that I switched something up and I have gotten nothing but positive mentions.
I have been using this with my favorite slanted brow brush. The one in the picture at the top of the post (long discontinued Rock & Republic brush) is the one I originally started using but I switched when this one kept creating an overly strong brow. That brush was too stiff so it draws on the product too heavy. I have been using the Laura Mercier brush that has a spoolie on the other end. It is still a dense brush but it bends just enough to give me a blended look.
As you can see from my playing below this makes a thin line, a curvy line, and can even be used to fake actual hairs. I also included (blurry) shots of my brows from a recent video I filmed. It isn’t up yet but I did some screen shots to include in this post for you all to see.
