Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review
Hey girlies! Hopefully this little pictorial I have created is easy to understand for you all!
Products I have used:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade << click here for the Beautybay website – this is where I ordered mine from! In the shade ‘Chocolate’
- Real Techniques Brow Brush from the Real Techniques Starter Kit* << click here for an Amazon link, tends to be cheaper than drugstore prices.
- Studio Finish concealer by MAC (any concealer of your choice would do!)
- An angled brush (I got this with a bundle of other eyeshadow brushes I ordered from eBay yeaaars ago and I can’t find the link for it anymore) 🙁
In picture 6, some may consider my eyebrows to be complete but I like the front of my brows to fade into the rest – that’s why I add in an extra two steps to my routine by using a spooly, some concealer and an angled concealer brush.
In picture 7, I brush through the front bit of my brows, not too hard but just enough so that it smudges the pomade and makes it look less harsh and lighter.
In picture 8, I get my angled concealer brush (it’s always best to use an angled brush because the shape helps to sculpt out your desired shape easier) – I use the concealer to clean up the mess and make my eyebrows look neater. And by picture 9, et voila! The eyebrow is complete!
- Its waterproof formula has a long-lasting power and it doesn’t smudge or fade throughout the course of the day, that’s why I tend to use the pomade when I have a special event/outing.
- It dries to a matte finish, so it’s perfect for people with oily skin or those who live in a hot/humid climate.
- It can also be used as eyeliner so it’s a good two-in-one versatile product!
- The creamy formula allows it to blend perfectly into your natural hairs so can be worn naturally or to your personal preference.
- There are five shades to choose from (Auburn, Blonde, Chocolate, Dark Brown and Ebony) so can cater to a variety of different shades.
- Practice definitely makes perfect with this product! One thing to bear in mind with this pomade is that it can make your eyebrows look really harsh and drawn on – especially if it’s your first time applying this stuff on!
- Sometimes it can dry too quickly so it becomes difficult to go back in and change something if you’re unhappy with it. Hence why I often go back in and use the concealer to get rid of or shape up my brows if I feel like it isn’t how I want it to look.
- It’s quite pricey; the Dipbrow Pomade retails for £15 on www.beautybay.com . I know that some people have alternatively used a brown Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner to fill in their eyebrows. It retails for £4.99 and looks the same as if you were to have applied the pomade! However, since I haven’t used this method or product on myself, I’m quite limited to what I can say about this product – what I can say is, if you don’t want to spend too much and YOU would like to try out the gel liner method then give it a go!
Would I recommend this product?
YES – I would definitely say that, if you don’t mind spending the money and wear makeup on a regular basis, then get this item! It really does make the longevity of my makeup last longer. Although it costs £15, a little goes a long way with this.
It’s great for my makeup kit since my clients often want something that’s longwearing, smudge proof and easy to remove – and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade absolutely ticks all the boxes!
