I’m here with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade review. I know this isn’t anything new but I don’t usually review products in any particular order of the current releases. I can use a product for 1 year going on 2 AND THEN decide to review it. Time is really a good partner in my product reviewing process, especially with skincare. Even with makeup such as this one, sometimes you can either grow to love it, or grow to hate it, over time.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review in Dark Brown
I have used this Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown for about 3 months now. Here’re my thoughts.
By now you should’ve seen this little glass pot with an embossed ABH logo screw cap a million times, so that’s that.
The pigment is undeniable; a slight dip with an eyebrow angled brush gives you quite a solid stroke as seen in the above middle picture. So you need to be very light-handed (and frankly, a little skillful) with applying your brow makeup. The texture is very pliable, almost like a waxy, balm, so if you are well-trained in brow-shaping, it is really easy to manipulate the shape and intensity of the brows, and the nature of the pomade makes it great for creating natural strokes, from light feathering ones to outlining and filling in, making your eyebrows look ‘clean’ and put together. If I’m not mistaken, this product literally sets a certain eyebrow look and shape on the longest lasting brow trend. It is still trending btw, just go to Instagram and you can see all other makeup brands creating that same eyebrow shapes everywhere.
I’ve seen reviews saying that the dipbrow pomades can easily be dried out if you leave the cap off the glass pot from time to time while doing the brows. I have been doing that for the past months but the pomade remains soft, probably due to the humid weather in Singapore.
What Colour of the Dipbrow Pomade Should You Get?
The shade Dark Brow is great for those with black or dark brunette manes. While I’m not really into hair-brow matching, dark brown seems to be most natural-looking for Asian’s brows in general. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade comes in a wide range of other colour options from the lighter blonde & taupe to a fairly good range of browns to Ebony, Ash Brown and the darkest black shade which is Granite.
How To Use Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade
Using a small angled brush, I dip into the pomade with a few sweeping motions in flip-flop strokes. I like to then load off some product on the back of my hand, whatever that remains in the brush would have given you a fair bit of brow product to work on your brow sculpting and filling in of the last third of the brow, a.k.a the tail portion. Then going back with the same brush, I pick up more product from the back of my hand and go on to fill in the mid-section of the brow, followed by buffing in width-wise on the brow head/ sprout section to create that gradient look so the brow starts weak and end strong. Unlike eyebrow pencils, the dipbrow pomade works great with angled brushes to mimic natural hair strokes more precisely, so depending on how you’d like your brow heads to look, you can pick up more product to start those precise strokes with.
See what I mean when I say it is harder to mimic brow hair strokes using an eyebrow pencil in this video if you’re interested.
What Brush To Use with Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade
I’m currently using the Morphe Angle Liner Brush from their Set 685 6 Piece Travel Brush Set with the dipbrow pomade since it is the only decent small angled brush that I’m left with. Since it is a eyeliner brush, I would think if it does a good job with brow products that would be either a sheer case of luck or that my eyebrow makeup skills are pretty dang good. I don’t know how I fare though, from the photos below, you be my judge. You can create your brow looks from thin to thick, and light to dark like so.
