Once upon a time the thought of applying product to enhance my brows was such a foreign concept – brow pencils, no thank you! It fell in the out dated or drag queen category, something I never would even consider let alone try. Now? Well let’s just say I will happy give eye shadow, eye liner, lipstick.. all that a miss but not my groomed brows. Today I want to talk to you about a revolutionary product in my opinion introduced to us mere mortals by the brow guru herself, Anastasia Soare.
The latest addition to the Anastasia Beverly Hills line is the DipBrow Pomade, a waterproof cream product aimed at the brows. At first I thought it would be similar to a gel eyeliner which I have in the past used for my brows but it isn’t. It adheres to the brow hairs much better than gel liner ever will, it sets and does not slip nor smudge – a problem I found with my MAC Dipdown (brown gel liner). It also doesn’t have the unwanted shine finish the MAC product was giving me. I’m finding the DipBrow range to be a god send for my makeup clients, previously I only used powder brow products on clients with oily sin types as you really want a fade-proof and smudge-proof brow finish and this product delivers that even on oily/combination skin.
There are 5 different colours in the range to suit all colour types. We have: Blonde, Auburn, Chocolate, Dark Brown and Ebony. The colours are made to coexist alongside the existing shade range of products, so you can easily match Brow Powder, Brow Wiz etc with the DipBrow products. My favourites are Chocolate and Dark Brown, I mix the two colours for the perfect finish to my brows. If you look at my Instagram (@makeupatoz) you can see me using the mixture. I’ve actually also been using the products as an eyeshadow base! The consistency works well as I can easily spread it all over my lid with my fingers and if you wanted to you could also use it as eyeliner. I’ve been creating such easy smokey brown looks with these.
I’ve really been enjoying using these little pots of perfection, they glide on so smoothly. The best brush to use would be an angled synthetic brush, I’ve been using the Anastasia #12 brush which was designed for the DipBrow Pomade. After applying the product make sure to blend it with a clean spoolie (I love that word!). The product stays on so well that even my Bioderma doesn’t remove it properly, you’ll need a waterproof makeup remover and it will just wipe away. It retails for £15.00 here at Cult Beauty, I think that is so affordable as one pot is sure to last you absolutely ages as you only need a tiny little bit.
I could carry on raving about how awesome this product is but I think this post might go into essay territory. Just trust me it is really special. I’ve been quite quiet on here as of late, I have actually just started a new job and have been travelling up and down the country for training. I’m actually heading to Manchester tomorrow so that means a super early 4AM start for me as it is a really long journey away, we are talking around 5 hours drive away! Wish me luck and I shall speak to you soon! Tanzina x
