As I have mentioned several times over, brows are so important. If I apply makeup at all, brows will always be in that mix. I have raved about so many products, textures and techniques over time and the one medium that is popular right now is brow pomade. I did a whole post on the Anastasia Dipbrow so if you haven’t read that you totally should. Today I am doing a battle between high end and drugstore and the stars of the show are Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade vs Salon Perfect Brow Pomade.
Anastasia Dipbrow and Salon Perfect Brow Pomade are so similar in many ways. For starters the shades of both of these products are in Dark Brown, as I do have dark brown hair. They both come in pots and need to be applied with a brush. ABH Dipbrow has 4.0 g/0.14 oz of product inside while the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade has 3.2 g/0.11 oz of product, so very similar in the amount given.
There is one huge difference though, and that is the price tag. Anastasia Dipbrow runs $18 at Sephora whereas the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade will run you less than $5! Yep! It is going to be exclusive to Walmart but it is not currently on the site, so run in your local Walmart to get it!
The difference in color should be noted. Like I mentioned before, both of these are in the shade dark brown. When swatched the ABH Dipbrow appears to have more of a lighter grey tint and the Salon Perfect is a darker cool-toned shade.
My before shot is super BLAH. You can see that I have gaps and bald spots in my brows. They don’t match exactly because of these gaps and no-grow-zones. Also, I have Bell’s Palsy and the paralysis of one side of my face a few years back actually have altered the way my brows react to my face movement. #FirstWorldProblems I know, but still a complete aggrivation.
You can see in the after shot that both the Anastasia Dipbrow and Salon Perfect Brow Pomade appear to look exactly the same. They look the same color, the same texture and they both stay on all day without budging.
One thing I want to note is that it took me a LONG time to learn to use Dipbrow correctly; I used different brushes, different techniques, different everything until I got it right. I didn’t have that problem with the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade but that could be because I already mastered the use of a pomade? Another thing I wanted to mention is that I feel like the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade is slightly easier to use and isn’t as prone to looking “overdone”. I could make small mistakes and still fix it quickly and overall it looks slightly more natural. It also comes in 3 different shades: Blonde, Light Brown and Dark Brow.
The winner of this battle, in my opinion, is the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade. It is less expensive, does the same job, and is easier to work with! No brainer for me!
