I thought I would do an Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade review, especially seeing that my swatches post on this was one of my most popular posts ever! I use this product religiously, I have been using it pretty much most makeup days since I laid my hands on it, so I it is time give you my opinion on it. There are quite a few reviews floating around on this product however I wanted to share my experience with you all.
Let’s start with the shades I use. My colouring is dark, I have dark hair and brows, brown eyes with a tan yellow complexion. My brows are naturally dark, as you will see in the below pictures, and personally I do not like making my brows darker than they already are. For that reason, the DipBrow Pomades I have used the most are: Medium Brown, Chocolate and at times Dark Brown. Find swatches of them below.
Currently I use Medium Brown the most, it doesn’t seem like it is a shade that would match me but somehow it works. Like I said I don’t like making my brows darker than they already are, as they stand out enough alone as it is! I used Chocolate quite a bit also before the shade Medium Brown was released but at times I could overdo it and go too bold. Dark Brown I like using on the tail of my brow (the end) and sometimes I do like that part dark and bold.
For application I use two items. First is a spoolie, I personally really like the spoolie at the end of Anastasia Sable Duo Brow Brush #7. It’s small, strong and really good at brushing through my brows with. However if you wanted to use a cheaper alternative I can’t see why that wouldn’t work, it is just personal preference. For the pomade however I don’t use the corresponding Anastasia Beverly Hills Large Synthetic Duo Brow Brush #12. I like to have a very precise application so I can create single lines to imitate brow hairs and also have sharper edges. I use this C160 Angle Liner brush from Crown Brushes which I find works perfectly, AND it is only £2.29. However I found that the product works much better with a clean brush, so I just wipe my brush on a wet wipe to clean off any deposit and then dip it into the Pomade. I would highly recommend using a clean brush every time you use the Pomade as this helps you get the best results.
I don’t like to fill in my brow completely with the Pomade, instead I like to do light strokes to outline the brow and fill in any gaps. I find this helps create a more natural look, which is more flattering to my face. However on days where I want the ‘perfect’ brow, I do the same process and lightly fill in the brow using the Anastasia Brow Duo Powder in Dark Brown. Find below my ‘natural brow’ vs. my ‘perfect brow’. FYI, I clean up underneath the brow with a light concealer.
When it comes to staying power, I really have no worries with this product, it just stays. I have never worried about it smudging or fading and find it last perfectly all day, 12 hours +. I would say that the Anastasia brow line most definitely contains the best brow products I have ever used, especially the Brow Wiz. I would recommend brow shaping newbies to use the Brow Wiz first as the Pomade can seem a bit scary and it is so easy to end up with Drag brows, which you may not want. The Brow Wiz has such good precision but that is a whole new post!
Today I mainly wanted to show you how I use the DipBrow Pomade as I know so many of you are intrigued with this product, and some people are scared by it! I hope you found this post informative and if you have any questions, just write it into the comments and I will be sure to reply back to you. Also, if you want a tutorial, let me know.
