Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review

By 8:30 AM

Recently I decided to do something I haven't done in years - I decided to try a new eyebrow product.


I'm kind of ashamed to admit it, but I've been using the SAME. EXACT. brow pencil since 8th or 9th grade. It's a light-medium brown/taupe shade my Covergirl, and it's worn down to a couple inches of a nub. 

I figured since I'm practically an actual almost-adult-like kind of person now, I should probably level up on my brow game. Something like that.

However, here's the thing I didn't expect - I was actually nervous to try anything else. How bizarre is that? It's just a brow product! But when you've used one thing that works really well for so long, it's hard to imagine using anything else!

I did some researching and after reading reviews and hearing opinions from friends, I decided to try out this dipbrow pomade. It seemed like a great option, but it was way out of the box for me. I couldn't imagine using anything other than a pencil, but I decided to just go for it.

When I made my trip to Sephora, I had to ask for help from one of the employees because I realized that I had no earthly idea what shade to try. The color they had for those with auburn hair seemed way too dark, but the other lighter shades just looked weird to me. The woman who helped me suggested I try the shade caramel and let me see what the product looked like. It seemed like a great fit, so I took the plunge.

INITIAL THOUGHTS





Let me just admit that when I first used this stuff, it was kind of a disaster. If you're a pencil person like me and you try a pomade or cream product for the first time, beware - it's gonna get messy and it's not cute. At least the first time, anyway. (Or five times .... whichever.)

Also, my brows are totally blonde, so it's hard for me to fill in a shape when I can't even really see them, so that made it significantly more difficult. However, I was persistent and determined to make my brows look flawless.

And it happened.

Guys, this stuff is fantastic. Once you get used to the consistency of it, it's amazing. It gives you a lot of control and precision.

It's got a great consistency that's nice and smooth, but it lasts so long! Especially when you lock it in with a brow gel, which I always do. (I use the ABH brow gel as well!)

Also, this shade is way more flattering on me than my previous brow pencil. It's a light, taupe-y brown shade that works well with my hair color and doesn't overwhelm my face.

The product costs $18, which is a great price if you ask me. I expected it to be more expensive than that, for sure! I picked it up at my local Sephora.

TIPS FOR USING


If you decide to try this stuff out, keep in mind that a little goes a long way. It's super easy to pile on too much of this onto your brush, so keep it light and remember that it's always easier to add more than to take away.

Also, if you've got blonde brows like I do, try starting out the front of your brow with a pencil and filling in the rest with the pomade. It helps give you a guideline for where to start and keeps you from ending up with horribly uneven brows.

I use the brush that ABH created to use with the pomade, but I'm sure you can find one that works just as well and is probably cheaper. This one is $18, which might be a little much to some people, but it was reasonable for me and it also was really convenient to just pick it up while I purchased the pomade. Maybe I'm lazy, but I digress. It's a great brush!
