When I really want to frame my face with some killer brows, this is always the product I reach for…
I had tried a fair few brow pomades from other brands. But, most of the time they were way too warm-toned and didn’t really suit my skin or match my hair colour. However, one day I finally bit the bullet and bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade; I haven’t looked back since!
Choosing my shade was a bit difficult and slightly risky due to ordering online. I made sure I watched a lot of YouTube videos and compared lots of swatch photos before purchasing. I finally decided on Taupe, since it looked the most cool-toned out of them all and that’s what I was looking for.
I was tempted to purchase the ABH Duo Brow Brush, however went for a cheaper alternative, which is the A17 brush from Spectrum Brushes. The verdict: I was so impressed! This brush makes it so easy to create fine lines and carve out the shape of my brows neatly. I would definitely recommend it.
I’d describe Taupe as a very cool-toned medium brown. Beauty Bay describe Taupe as suited for platinum and light blonde hair, but I have dark blonde/light brown hair and even Taupe is ever so sliiiightly too dark for me. I try to use a light hand and often powder over my brows slightly to make them look less harsh and bring some hairs back to life (a really great tip if you accidentally overdo it with the brows!).
I can’t emphasise how amazing my brows look when I use this product. It allows me to create a whole new shape to my brow that I can’t do with any other product. It is so creamy, pigmented and glides on very easily. It doesn’t feel oily like some other brow products do, meaning it does not budge. And I kid you not, this stuff does NOT budge! The rest of my makeup can be looking worn by the end of the day, but oh no, these brows are looking EXACTLY the same as they did first thing in the morning.
Another thing I love about this product is that you can easily build it up. For a night out, I can use slightly more product and create a more defined, structured brow. But, it’s also very easy to create very light strokes for a natural brow throughout the day.
Above is a comparison of my brows with just clear brow gel (left) and with the ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe (right). As you can see it makes a huge difference to the definition of the brows. I can create a higher arch, which in turn creates an illusion of a thicker brow. Plus, I can extend the tail of my brow really easily.
I’ve had this product for over a year now and I’m no where near close to running out. It hasn’t dried out a single bit, which is so impressive. It’s still as creamy and soft as it was when I first opened it. Overall, this product is a win, win!
