Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in 'Dark Brown'

ANASTASIA CLAIMS
A smudge-free, waterproof pomade formula that performs as an all-in-one brow product. This creamy, multitasking product glides on skin and hair smoothly to create clean, defined brows. The standout formula works as a brow primer and provides color, sculpture, and shading.

MY OPINION
Brows are everything! Aren't they? They frame your whole face. And they are actually the first thing I notice in a person. And I am guilty of saying that I love the on fleek Instagram/HD brows. Personally, I am not a fan of the bushy Cara Delevigne brows (though she rocks them), I prefer them neater and more defined and NO not over-plucked and drawn in; and this is where the cult-favourite ABH Dipbrow Pomade comes in.

I had been putting off getting this product, frankly because the gel formula scared me. I was fine with a brow powder or pencil even though the super-sculpted Instagram brows fascinated me like anything. And then I just gave in and ordered a pot for myself in the shade 'Dark Brown'. The first time, like most people, I used too much product and just stared in agony at the pot wondering if this was it. So I looked up a couple more tutorials and finally got the hang of it, truly a life brow-changer. With the Dipbrow Pomade, less is more! 

For starters, this product is gonna last a lifetime, hopefully it doesn't dry too quickly like the gel eyeliners. I have had it since 2 months now and the consistency is pretty much the same. It has a gel-like formula, more towards the drier side than creamy, which makes the product stay in place all day without smudging or budging. I also don't feel the need of a brow setter on top. I use an angled eyeliner brush with it, pick some product, dab excess on the back of my hand and also warm up the product in the process, then I begin from the middle of the brows giving a slight arch and go a little darker on the ends, whatever is left on the brush I fill in the front portion ever so slightly. The product applies very smoothly and once on sets to a waterproof finish.

MY RATING


Dipbrow Pomade helps me achieve perrr-fect brows! I don't know where I'd be without this product.
