I spilled the beans on everything brows back in February when I reviewed another of Anastasia's brow products everyone seems to love- the Brow Wiz as well as a brow gel I often use- the Benefit Gimme Brow. For the first time in my life, I finally like what I see in the mirror when I complete my brow routine. Not to sound dramatic or anything, but for all I've been through with these brows of mine, this is big!
Just when I thought nothing could top the brow wiz, I gave the dip brow pomade a try. The #12 brush was recommended in combination on Sephoras website when I bought it and it's a great match with it's precise angle and spooly end.
The thing about my brows is that there is one patch that just refuses to be filled by any product I've used until now because of a scar running through from when I was a kid. The dip brow pomade has been the first and only product to fill it, and make it look like I actually have had hairs growing in that spot all along.
The texture is slightly thick, a bit waxy feeling, but still super smooth. This combination means the bare spots get filled while the product grabs onto the natural hairs, making them appear thicker. The downside with this is that it can be easily overdone. Using a light hand and short strokes does the trick. Also, if you don't go in with a really good makeup remover at the end of the night it'll stay on for days- while this is a pro for this lazy girl, it may not be for someone else.
One of these days, I'll record an in depth brow routine video to showcase exactly how I use this pomade.
Left brow done, right brow undone
The substantial glass jar is filled to the brim with product and if not for it almost completely drying out after about a month, it would last for absolutely ages. I screw the lid tightly shut after each use but I have heard I'm not the only one experiencing this. I will still be hanging onto mine now that it's pretty much done for and dried out because apparently there is a hack of adding eye drops or some product to it and reincarnate it.
As for the color, I couldn't ask for a better match in Medium Brown. This pomade is available in about 12 different shades ranging from light taupe to almost deep black so I think there is probably one to suit everyone too.
I think at $18 this product is worth every penny! This brand is well known for the brow products for very good reason. A brow brush at the same price on the other hand I'm not certain is a necessity, even though it does perform well.
Have you given this brow pomade a try? If you have, what did you think of it? If you haven't do you want to?
Let me know in the comments form, along with any other opinions you may have, I love hearing from readers!
