Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW™ Pomade {Review}

                                                              
It wasn't until a couple years ago that I even started paying my brows any attention. Now I realize how important it is for your brows to be shaped and filled in. When I'm having an morning where I look especially tired, after I line my brows, I get an immediate pick me up in my appearance. I have been using the Tarte colored clay tinted brow gel product which I still highly recommend. The Tarte product gives you more of a subtle look and is a really good starter product for brows. When you first start lining your brows in, you will see a difference that may take some getting use to, so I think it's always best to start out natural. 


I first became interested in the Anastasia DIPBROW Pomade when I heard about it from my friend Justina at Justina's Gems. She tried her shade out on me which was dark brown. We have similar hair coloring and similar tastes, although her color was a little too dark on me. I wandered into Ulta to try to find the perfect shade for me. I'll admit it was a little overwhelming in the store until someone finally came to help me. I've found that in the pan it is really hard to tell which color would work best for you. In pan, I would think chocolate would be my best match but that is actually darker than dark brown and I knew that shade was already too dark. I ended up with the soft brown color and once I tried it on in store, I knew that it was a good match. You can see in the photo below that it really blended in nicely with my medium to dark brunette hair.

What it is:A smudge-free, waterproof pomade formula that performs as an all-in-one brow product. Retails $18 for .14 oz. 

What it does:
This creamy, multitasking product glides on skin and hair smoothly to create clean, defined brows. The standout formula works as a brow primer and provides color, sculpture, and shading. It is ideal for oily skin and in humid climates.

This product is a great value for the price. It is only $18 and it is going to last you a very long time. It is also super easy to apply. I use an angled eyeliner brush. The only issue I've had is that again you only need a tiny amount of product so when you start on the fuller part of your brow it can be a little too much or a little too dark if you've picked up too much product. Also I use the wand from my Tarte colored clay brow product if I need to blend this in a little better. I find lining the outer brow area is much easier with this product than filling in the fuller part before the arch. Overall though I think this is a really easy to use product. The hardest part may be finding the perfect shade for you so I highly recommend trying this on in person first. I've also found this lasts throughout the day without any problems. Although I still love my Tart colored clay brow product, I tend to reach for Anastasia when I'm going for more of a dramatic put together look or when I really am tired and could use the extra lift. 

What are your thoughts on this product? What do you currently use on your brows and how does it work for you? Comment and let me know, I'd love to hear from you!
